Hidden Journey: A Spiritual Awakening (Watkins Spiritual Classics) : At twenty-five, Andrew Harvey abandoned a career at Oxford to return to his native India. He didn't know why, except to escape the 'concentration camps of reason' and recapture 'the strange and boundless joy I always felt when I thought of India.' At first he was cynical, scoffing at devotees and ashramites. Then he met the extraordinary Mother Meera, a 17-year-old girl who appeared to be the incarnation of the Divine Mother. He raised every possible argument against the existence of another reality - and watched each one dissolve in the face of extraordinary mystical experiences. Although written after his most famous book, A Journey in Ladakh, this is the first part of Andrew Harvey's autobiographical spiritual journey. In this engaging - and courageous - account, he tries to describe the indescribable, his own spiritual transformation, with a remarkable degree of success. Every encounter Harvey has with the divine Mother is described in vivid language, using beautiful spiritual phrases, full of depth and sincerity, inviting the reader to share his experiences. It is a spiritual autobiography unlike any other. Every page touches the soul and heart.
