“We gain spiritual eminence when we visit the Himalayas. But he was a rare one who brought glory to the very Himalayas!” – Thus, spoke great Master about Swami Tapovan Maharaj.

This spiritual luminary and realized Sage lived in obscure hamlets in the lap of the Himalayas for the best part of his life. But his disciple, the internationally acclaimed spiritual leader Swami Chinmayananda, carried his Gurur’s name and image to far corners of the globe.

This book chronicles the life of this exalted Himalayan Hermit – called so, not just, because of where he lived, but also because of his Himalayan Wisdom and Experience, which enabled him to revel constantly in the Highest Truth.

His life inspires and elevates, teaches and transforms, and has a rare power to make us look within ourselves and question the very fundamental basic on which we lead our lives.
