- Author: Mick Brown
The spiritual quest -- a yearning for a sense of the sacred -- has become a leitmotif of contemporary life. In this highly entertaining book, Mick Brown joins the holy, the lost, the wise & the foolish on the highways & backroads of spiritual tourism. A trail of chance leads Brown to the 19th century occult adventuress Madame Blavatsky, via the philosopher Krishnamurti. In India he encounters the miracle-working Sai Baba, & discusses reincarnation with the Dalai Lama. In Germany he joins the pilgrims who kneel at the feet of Mother Meera. Brown is able to see the sham of religion without difficulty, but he doesn t allow this sham to deflect his search for a genuine mystic source underneath it all.
