AMERICAN VEDA: From Emerson and the Beatles to Yoga and Meditation, How Indian Spirituality Changed the West
From the jacket copy:
"In February, 1968, the Beatles went to India for an extended stay with their new guru, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. It may have been the most momentous spiritual retreat since Jesus spent those forty days in the wilderness."
With these words, Philip Goldberg begins his monumental work, American Veda, a fascinating look at India’s remarkable impact on Western culture. This eye-opening popular history shows how the ancient philosophy of Vedanta and the mind-body methods of Yoga have profoundly affected the worldview of millions of Americans and radically altered the religious landscape.

An indispensible book for anyone on a spiritual path, whether within a mainstream tradition or a journey of one's own.

Based upon 3 decades of personal experience and years of research, this book provides the road signs every soul searcher needs. It leads to the best kind of guidance you can have: your own answers based on your own reflection and your own unique needs.
“Goldberg’s travel tips, drawn from a wealth of experience and insight, are as practical as they are wise.” - Deepak Chopra
