Spiritual scholar and international speaker Ravi Ravindra, one of the world’s leading authorities on J. Krishnamurti, G. Gurdjieff, and the world’s Mystical traditions, makes a rare public-speaking appearance in the U.S.

“Ravi Ravindra writes with the authority and clarity of a spiritual master. Whether writing about Christianity, Buddhism, or the teaching of Krishnamurti, he brings deep insight. Now he has clearly and admirably presented the Yoga Sutras. Highly recommended.” — TKV Desikachar, author of The Heart of Yoga
