Cover by Batsheva Levenson-Lubin
Sara Yoheved Rigler made her first, year-long trip to India while still in college at Brandeis University. She spent 15 years living in an ashram and practicing and teaching meditation. Then her spiritual journey took a hair-pin turn. She went to Jerusalem and started studying what she called, "the world's most hidden religion: Torah Judaism." The tales collected in this book span the breadth of her colorful, adventure-filled life. The lessons derive from a dizzying variety of sources:
A Hassidic Rebbe in Jerusalem

A Kabbalist in rural Israel
Girls at a Calcutta orphanage
A Maharaj's palace in the foothills of the Himalayas
A doctor who gunned down his girlfriend
A cat on a dangerous military mission
