A spiritual aspirant's journey is sprinkled with many battles overcoming mind over matter through different sadhanas (spiritual practices). One such sadhana is going on a pilgrimage, which provides challenges for the body, mind and intellect.
In 1948, a young sadhaka embarked on a rare pilgrimage of discovery through the splendour of Uttarakhand. Often going without food, sleeping where he put his bundle down for the night, lashed by the cold northern wind, he established a deep communion with nature.
This memoir penned by the sadhaka at the end of each long and treacherous day, is interspersed with humour, sketches and poetry inspired by the majestic surroundings.
This young sadhaka was Swami Chinmayananda.
My Trek through Uttarakhand is personal and delectable narrative of Pujya Gurudev, Swami Chinmayananda's trek across the Himalayan terrain. A book not only for trekking enthusiasts who dare to tread the unbeaten path but also a subtle and deeply insightful account for any aspirant on a spiritual journey.
Hailed as the second Swami Vivekananda, Pajya Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda (1916-1993) has left a great legacy behind for mankind. On realising the true purpose of life, he worked tirelessly and with tremendous energy for more than four decades to spread the message of Vedanta. A great orator, writer, leader, patriot and spiritual giant, he is one of the finest representatives of Indian spiritual heritage. The sprawling worldwide organisation of Chinmaya Mission carries on the torch lit by this great saint.
