„Someone once described writing as turning blood into ink – another compared prose to an axe that might ‚break the frozen sea within us, thaw the cold heart. The charm of life and the warmth of the heart are both present in these reminiscences by Joggata Dallas, a longtime disciple of the spiritual Master Sri Chinmoy.
Born in New Zealand, Joggata met his late wife Subarata – Irish born and fiercely independant – in the late 1970s. In 1981 they met Sri Chinmoy in New York and so began a spiritual journey that would profoundly and wonderfully alter the course of their lives. Many of the stories in this collecti0n chart this journey and offer a glimpse into the time honored Guru-disciple relationship. These collected memories of their years ‚in the Boat‘ illustrate too the truth of the proverb that ‚a moment with the Beloved and the river changes its course‘.
May some of the stories, insights and experiences recounted in this collecti0n offer some inspirati0n to all those embarking on the great journey of self-discovery, the quest that lies at the heart of every human life. “
