Publisher's Summary

Within this extraordinary memoir, Radhanath Swami weaves a colorful tapestry of adventure, mysticism, and love. Listeners follow Richard Slavin from the suburbs of Chicago to the caves of the Himalayas as he transforms from young seeker to renowned spiritual guide. The Journey Home is an intimate account of the steps to self-awareness and also a penetrating glimpse into the heart of mystic traditions and the challenges that all souls must face on the road to inner harmony and a union with the Divine.   

Through near-death encounters, apprenticeships with advanced yogis, and years of travel along the pilgrim’s path, Radhanath Swami eventually reaches the inner sanctum of India’s mystic culture and finds the love he has been seeking. It is a tale told with rare candor, immersing the reader in a journey that is at once engaging, humorous, and heartwarming.

Highly, highly recommended

A top 10 book & this is from someone who’s read/listened to over a thousand in his lifetime. I shed tears all throughout the book & it has brought me to a level of spirituality that even some scriptures could not.

Inspirational and impossible to pause

Radhanath Swami you are life embodied. In the mist of the world's hardest times I chose your book to show me another view of your adventures and discovery of spiritual enlightenment and to serve others. I chose to listen to this as my positive quiet time on route to work and back. I has helped me in finding my dharma and study to become a counsellor for my UK police force to help those damaged by the events of 2020 find their self and inner peace again. I'm now engaging in my own selfless by service helping others heal. I have got so much from your book that it will forever be etched in my heart. Thankyou forever grateful

I used to think things like this only happened in the movies...but I was proved wrong! A life of adventure, meaning and the deepest love can be ours...thank you for showing us how Radhanath Swami. Can’t wait to apply what I have learned in this book to my life, for a happier and healthier experience!
