The Himalayan Masters
This year’s Interliber Zagreb Book Fair was my best Interliber ever! Not only I had an honor to work for the whole week (Nov 6-12) on the stall of the publisher Jesenski & Turk, but I also got a copy of the book The Himalayan Masters: A Living Tradition (Mudraci s Himalaje: Vječno učenje velikih jogija) by Pandit Rajmani Tigunait I’ve translated in August this year from English into Croatian.
My publisher, Planetopija, released this book last month, and it is the same publisher which published my translation of the book Don’t Believe Everything You Think: Why Your Thinking Is The Beginning & End Of Suffering (Ne vjeruj svemu što misliš: Tvoje razmišljanje je početak i kraj patnje) by Joseph Nguyen.
A Croatian book description says that this book explores the lives of eight Himalayan masters who have preserved the purified knowledge and power of world spiritual traditions. Sanatkumara, Vashishtha, Dattatreya, Parashurama, Shankararacharya, Vidyaranya Yati, Madhusudan Sarasvati and Swami Rama from Himalayas belonged to a universal tradition that emphasizes the direct experience of the truth unlimited by belonging to a particular religion, nationality, geography, era, or race. Referring to ancient Sanskrit texts and 5,000 years old oral tradition, Pandit Tigunait tells stories and recorded dialogue that revives the experiences of these masters. He skillfully weaves their teachings into attractive and miraculous stories, so that the reader easily understands what might act in another context as a hard-to-understand philosophy. Eight Himalayan masters knew how to stay healthy and vital in the world while experiencing the deepest truths of existence. Their lives can help honest seekers find their own path to wisdom and truth.
