Description

For the curious beginner or the seasoned pilgrim, From Here to Nirvana is the be-all, end-all guide to yogis and gurus, ashrams and temples -- the lowdown on food, facilities, and bringing your own mosquito net, as well as where to go, what to pack, and how to get there -- from the foothills of the Himalayas to the Malabar coast. It's the first comprehensive book on the art of pilgrimage in the subcontinent.
