Shiva-spirited Baba Prakashpuri Ji Maharaj was pinnacle of saintliness living in the twentieth century, who had attained the highly aspired 'eternal-God-communion'. Instead of yielding the meditation-born prophetic powers for his own personal merit, he dedicated his entire life of over hundred years to the enlightenment and salvation of afflicted masses around the world.
Baba Prakashpuri Ji was a saint of 'Dhoona' (ascetic's fire) order. Having renounced household in his early childhood, he meditated and austered for prolonged years in the imperceptible caves on the top of Himalayas. Ever living dispassionate from the worldly-honeyed temptations, he was of non-begging, non-craving, and of renunciants nature. He was an inordinate reverent of Lord Shiva and would be seen in the profound faith of people as being the Shiva-incarnate Himself. Once arrived in 1960 in the woods of Daultabad (Gurgaon, India), after living for about forty years, he took his final transcendental rest (emancipation) here itself. Living himself the 'wandering-monkhood' attribute as being extolled for ascetics in Hinduism, he had made pilgrimages to the entire chain of holy shrines across the length and breadth of India for three times in his life. He reinstated many old neglected holy place-marks of Lord Shiva, ministered the construction of the proper temples over them, and also established many new holy shrines of Lord Shiva at several places. One of these shrines in Manali, which is known as 'Anjani-Mahadev-Shiva-linga', is nowadays regarded as the holy reflection of highest pilgrimage of 'Amarnath'.
Even today, the profound holy faith of devotees in Baba Ji witnesses the active realization of matchless spiritual energy in the seekers' minds who visit the hermitages at Gurgaon, Aslapur village, Raiseena, Faridabad (all in the Haryana state of India), Manali (in Himachal Pradesh) and Janerkheda village (in Punjab).
The presented book is the collection of eight chapters which symbolize the eight fold lotuses in the path of cerebrospinal meditation. While the earlier chapters represent the seeking mind of devotee-reader, the eighth chapter is devotee's realization of the sweet fruit of his meditational pursuit, which is bestowed in the form of holy-utterances by Baba Ji himself. The said chapter has been named in this book as 'Baba-Uvaach'. The humbled expression in this book which accounts for all the known exploits related to birth, austerity, meditation, pre-Gurgaon advents, and various pilgrimages undertaken by Baba Ji, is assumed by the author to have been possible only because of the intangible yet tangible high blessings of Baba Ji himself.
Perhaps you will find Sudhir Mittal unnoticeable as an author. He is grounded and aloof from the frenzy. Only this ascribes the balance between the spirituality and modern world reflecting in his work.
