H. H. Babaji is the last in a lineage of great Tantric Gurus whose traditions are handed down through generations by word of mouth. He is one of the few living Himalayan Masters who still carries on the Guru-shishya tradition.

Babaji has spent several decades studying and translating various religious, philosophical, Tantric texts and scriptures, both common as well as rare. He is fluent in several Indian and foreign languages; and unlike many other men of the cloth, is an accomplished academician as well.

Through His writings, Babaji endeavours to simplify the complex scriptures and texts so that everyone may enjoy and imbibe these pearls of wisdom into their daily lives. His vast repertoire of knowledge, rare wisdom and refreshing insights coupled with His mastery over language make His books a rare treat for the uninitiated as well as the experienced reader. The Essence Of The Brahmasutras is the first in a series of four books on the fundamentals of Hindu religion and philosophy or Prasthan Trayee. The others to follow shortly in this series are based on the Vedas, the Upanishads and the Bhagavad Gita.

Bharat Savur

He’s juggled as many mass-media jobs as a juggler does balls. Radio (All India Radio and The Voice of America), Television (Production Assistant and presenter, Sports Round-up, Mumbai TV: one of the first to do so in 1972); Advertising: copywriter with Shilpi and ASP; Journalism (Deputy Editor, Debonair, Associate Editor, Gentleman Group); free-lance writer for a host of publications; fitness columnist for the Hindu Business Line; co-columnist with wife, Shalan Savur for The Deccan Herald and Prajavani; co-author with Shalan of the well-acclaimed book Fitness for Life; author of A Way With Words, a book which described his 40-odd years’ mass-media journey.

His firsts include co-authoring the world’s first cricket-fiction (cri-fi) comic, Sunny the Supersleuth (featuring cricketer Sunil Gavaskar); and being in a team of TV pioneers that brought an educational cricket programme to India’s National Television: That’s Cricket anchored by cricketer Ravi Shastri, which he scripted and co-produced.

The author holds that he has re-invented himself every few years in a mass-media career that is 40-odd years and counting. If so, The Long Road to Nowhere: From Is to Bliss is his latest avtar. To those that know the author, this is his biggest surprise (and perhaps, even shock!) Bharat, a born-again seeker/questor/spiritualist? Hey! who is he kidding? And believe it or not, this re-invented and rediscovered writer is also a fitness teacher!

But, seriously, the author takes this ‘almost spiritual’ autobiography as one of his best works ever. And finally wishes that you find it so too.
