    I first read one of Om Swami's blogs which I found to be excellent I subsequently read his Kundalini A million thoughts both of which are great books This is Om Swami's life and progress to spiritual excellence in a nutshell A person who was very successful in his profession and went on to become a millionaire by the age of 30 but was drawn to spirituality since his young age The book shifts between his pursuit of spirituality by renouncing everything he had and his childhood The narration is crisp for the most part and his life quite obviously is fascinating There are sections though which could have been shortened in the earlier parts of the book and space could have been devoted to his meditation and spiritual practices in the later sections However mindfulness methods are covered in his subsequent book A million thoughts which I would rate as among the best books on meditationOverall an inspiring book you should read if spirituality as a genre is of interest
