Himalayathile Gurukkanmarodoppam is a book written by Swami Rama. This book was published on 1st January, 2010, by DC Books in paperback. This is the first edition of the book and the language, in which it has been written, is Malayalam. He is known as one of the first yogis in India, who allowed Western scientists to study him and his works. Scientists were intrigued by the idea that he could practice voluntary control over his body processes like that of body temperature, heartbeat and blood pressure. These are normally considered as non-voluntary body processes. Another well known book authored by him is Enlightenment Without God.
Himalayathile Gurukkanmarodoppam by Swami Rama is one of the Malayalam books, which has inspired people from all over the world, to think more about meditation and mysticism. The book portrays Swami Rama's life. It depicts how he was raised in the Himalayas by his master/guru Bengali Baba, how he travelled from one temple to the other and how this involved his enlightenment. Himalayathile Gurukkanmarodoppam also narrates the saints he met, even his grandmaster, who lived in the interiors of Tibet and how this had a prevailing effect on his life and practices. The narration then goes on to portray his return to his master and his further years of practice in the Himalayan caves. His master seconded him to take up the role of a spiritual teacher in the West (mainly in Europe and the US) and thus, he started teaching in the West and stayed there for quite a long time. You can get a copy of this book from an online bookstore that is listed on Junglee.com.
