Between The Serpent And The Rope Ashrams Traditions Avatars Sages And Con Artists from the Author: Mukunda Rao. Between the Serpent and the Rope is a candid reckoning of some of the most notable spiritual movements in south India today. If it is on the one hand a deeply personal journey, on the other, it is an inquiry into the meaning and significance of spirituality in modern-day India. The book examines notions of enlightenment, freedom, wisdom and peace through multiple perspectives and spiritual traditions. Many writers, spiritual aspirants and monks have traversed this difficult, often mystifying territory, but Mukunda Rao brings to bear his critical bent of mind, the skills of a novelist and spiritual quest on it. His evocative yet deceptively simple prose allows for penetrating, startlingly fresh insights into the working of traditional ashrams and the culture of spiritual search. Moving from Kaladi to Thiruvannamalai to Pondicherry and to other spiritual centres, the narrative is a treasure trove of fascinating stories and an illuminating study of the lives and teachings of spiritual masters such as Sankaracharya, Basavanna, Allama Prabhu, Akka Mahadevi, Ramana Maharshi, Sri Aurobindo, the Mother, Jiddu Krishnamurti and U.G. Krishnamurti. It is also a scathing take on the modern-day avatars and gurus that include Sri Sathya Sai Baba, Kalki Bhagavan, Sri Sri Ravishankar and Mata Amritanandamayi. Large hearted yet questioning, Between the Serpent and the Rope is as inspiring as it is challenging.

The Cat And Shakespeare from the Author: Raja Rao. The Cat and Shakespeare is a gentle, almost teasing fable of two friends—Govindan Nair, an astute, down-to-earth philosopher and clerk, who tackles the problems of routine living with extraordinary common sense and gusto, and whose refreshing and unorthodox conclusions continually panic Ramakrishna Pai, Nair’s friend, neighbour and narrator of the story. This evocative novel brings alive the raw texture of Indian life, and delights in its humour.
