Hinduism is a powerful mix of religion, philosophy, history and culture. It has, to varying degrees, permeated the worlds of academia, business, entertainment, politics and even health and fitness. It claims to be the world's oldest organised religion, dating back 4500 years, yet it entered the 21st century with nearly 1 billion followers spread across every continent. Based on the ancient Vedic literature, it is a belief system in constant transition and populated by an almost infinite number of gods.
This one-of-a-kind book recounts the lives of five Indian gurus each of whose search for enlightenment makes for gripping and fascinating reading. Their journeys to the ultimate moment of truth give a unique insight into the soul of Hinduism and what it's like to be immersed in the life and experiences of this amazing and diverse global religion.
