Kurzbeschreibung

Originally published in 1938, this book is a fascinating look at the yogis of India at that time, both fakir and fake. "e;The witty and instructive author of New Guinea Gold has now visited India and has made a careful study of the supposed supernatural powers of the Hindu mystic. M. Demaitre warns the reader that the more picturesque performers are very likely to be in the employment of a travel agency, and that their usual repertoire would disgrace any competent European conjurer. At the same time he admits to having been very thoroughly mystified on several occasions. For the benefit of more serious students there is a sound exposition of the theory and practice of contemplation and the book is illustrated with some enlightening and unusual photographs"e;. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Hesperides Press are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork. Contents Include : Letter to a Yogi River of Torment The City of Forgotten Dreams Miracles Under the Microscope The Awakening of the Serpent Kundalini In the Shadow of Kali
