Swami Rama of Himalyas

 " For me, the Himalayas are my spiritual parents and living there was like living in the lap of a mother. She brought me up in her natural environment and inspired me to live a particular style of life... The love I received from the sages is like the perennial snows which form the silvery glaciers of the Himalayas and then melt into thousands of streams. ...Every breath of my life was enriched with spiritual experiences which may be difficult for many others to comprehend...."

" At a young age, I sat at the foot of Mount Kailasa and drank the glacial waters of Lake Manasarovar. Often I cooked the vegetables and roots grown by Mother Nature at Gangotri and Kedarnath. Living in the Himalayan caves was very pleasant, and when I was there, I was in the habit of roaming through the mountains during the day, taking notes in a haphazard manner, and returning to my cave before darkness would fall. My diary is filled with descriptions of my experiences with the sages, yogis, and other spiritual leaders of the Himalayas".
