Guruji : Teachings of a Hindu Saint – Sunil Reddy

Guruji : Teachings of a Hindu Saint

In 1991, author Sunil Reddy was a college student in Hyderabad when he sought out Guruji Verahur V. Srinivasan, a retired deputy inspector general of police who was a Yogi and a God-realized saint. Reddy wanted to learn the art of meditation from this man who was a prodigy in mastering different spiritual paths. They connected, and for the next four years, the two met weekly. Guruji: Teachings of a Hindu Saint recounts those meetings and the lessons learned. Reddy presents this collection of spiritual practices and techniques gleaned from a master and designed to help guide a true practitioner. He narrates Guruji’s visions and experiences with other masters, details the stages of spiritual progress, addresses distractions and detractions, repeatedly shows the qualities of true practice, and offers guideposts for assessment. Providing an in-depth look at many concepts central to the practice of Hinduism, Guruji: Teachings of a Hindu Saint guides disciples and seekers in their quest for spiritual enlightenment.
