Autobiography: general

Gurus: Ancient, Medieval and Modern is a well-researched book that brings to focus the lives, activities and legends associated with gurus of ancient, medieval and modern India. Sages like Vasishtha, Vishwamitra and Valmiki are among the luminaries of the ancient world, while the medieval ages are marked with the rich presence of gurus like Chaitanya and Krishna. The book also covers several contemporary yogis and sages who have been largely influenced by Western thoughts and who have brought about a harmonious confluence of Eastern and Western thoughts and spirituality. Among the most popular of these have been Osho and Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. This book is a useful repository of information for all those who are interested in knowing more about Hindu mythology, particularly the students and teachers of Indian philosophy. It is also a useful book for all school, college and university libraries, in addition to those pursuing Indological studies. About the Author M.L. Ahuja has over thirty books to his credit.
