Harvey, Shri Purohit Swami, Kendra Crossen Burroughs and Andrew
"Shri Purohit Swami (1882-1941) was an Indian monk who traveled to the West in 1930 to teach the wisdom of Hinduism. In addition to the Bhagavad Gita , he translated The Ten Principal Upanishads (in collaboration with the poet William Butler Yeats). Kendra Crossen Burroughs is a book editor whose specialty is religions of the East and West. She compiled The Essential Ken Wilber and Entering the Tao: Master Ni's Guidance for Self-Cultivation. A long-time student of the Bhagavad Gita, she lives in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Andrew Harvey is the author of many critically acclaimed books, including Son of Man . His memoir A Journey in Ladakh was praised as ""one of the best books available on the Western experience of Tibetan spiritual life."" His just-published memoir Sun at Midnight was praised by Deepak Chopra, who said, ""for those who have gone through the dark night of the soul and for those seeking a genuine understanding of spirituality, this is a very inspiring story."" Harvey is also the coauthor of the New York Times bestseller The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying. Born in India, he was the youngest person ever awarded a fellowship to All Souls College, Oxford. He has devoted the past thirty years of his life to study and experiencing the world's spiritual traditions and is widely recognized as one of our greatest communicators of mysticism and contemplative living today.
