This is the second book in the series On Higher Flights with Swami Chinmayananda
(Available free only as an ebook).
It is a priceless collection of images, letters, anecdotes, and teachings captured while the author was ‘on the road’ with Swami Chinmayananda, from 1961 to 1993. The series is written by Anjali Singh, who corresponded and travelled extensively with Swamiji, taking countless photos and keeping detailed notes after each encounter.
The reader will identify with the compelling personal story of a devotee seeking inner fulfilment, as she experienced joy-filled moments and extreme ego-deflating lows.
Who else but Swamiji could lift a person’s mind by using cashew nuts and horse-carts as his teaching vehicles or explain the stages of spiritual growth through cooking? All of this has provided a rich legacy, in both word and image, of the illuminating teachings of this extraordinary Master. The account is enhanced by the author’s engaging sense of humour, for instance, when she recounts her efforts to cook for Swamiji in France.
Book 2 covers the years 1980 to 1983, starting with a trip to Uttarkashi in the Himalayas, where the sacred Knowledge was revealed to Swamiji by his Guru. The author then travels with Swamiji to Switzerland, Vienna, Canada, U.S.A., Sidhbari, France, and Dubai, where she witnesses a meeting between two saints.
