For Heidi Wyder, who had set out on her travels in the hope of attaining peace of mind, India seemed a convenient stopover on the way to Thailand. Little did she realise that this would be the beginning of a fascinating and lifelong spiritual journey.

Arriving at Banaras, Heidi chanced upon two American fellow travellers who introduced her to kriya yoga, a form of yoga practised for thousands of years, where the mind focusses inward to attain spiritual freedom and ultimate inner knowledge. Very soon she found herself getting increasingly drawn to this ancient practice, more so after meeting Guruji Prakash Shankar Vyas and learning about the extraordinary feats of his spiritual masters. Such was the transforming effect of the practice that Heidi eventually received initiation into kriya yoga and made Banaras her second home.

KriyaYoga: Four Spiritual Masters and a Beginner is a compelling narrative that intertwines the life stories of four spiritual masters of kriya yoga with the captivating spiritual voyage of a traveller. Honest and insightful, it offers a realistic view of this much sought-after and extremely powerful yoga technique and initiates the beginner to a path of awe-inspiring self-discovery and complete mental equipoise.
