In the Land of the Saints
The sequel to The Jazz Master takes us to India on a spiritual and musical quest that ushers us into the presence of some of the foremost saints of the twentieth century, including Anandamayi Ma, Swami Sivananda, and Papa Ramdas, as well as the mysterious figure who appeared in Elijah’s dreams to draw him halfway around the world.
This book occupies a special place in my heart, as it gave me a chance to revisit one of the most magical periods in my life: the late seventies in India, starting in Patna and eventually traveling across the country to visit some of the other great spiritual teachers of the day — and in the case of those who had already departed, visiting their ashrams and meeting their most important living disciples. A great time to be alive and a great planet to be living on, despite all the work we still have to do on so many levels to make it habitable for spiritual beings.
