Confessions of an American Sikh: Locked up in India, corrupt cops & my escape from a

Rasies and excitement of 21st Century India Gursant chronicles his adventures in a fast moving warts and all style to give the reader a searingly honest picture of his own spiritual loss of innocence It was during my time in the Amritsar Central Jail that I thought of writing this book As soon as I had Internet access I began to research what it might take to create a written record of my experiences In effect this book was created as it happened and certainly before I knew how it would finish My hope was that I could help others to learn from my experiences; not only those in India but also those within the 3HO spiritual organization to which I devoted thirty years of my life India can be fun entertaining and spiritually inspiring; at the same time it can be harsh and unforgiving especially if you fall foul of the law as I did The spiritual path. A great insight into the 3HO organisiation and the complexities of the Indian legal and social system I am impressed with t he authors fortitude and positive nature despite the tsunami of events that go against him His faith takes him through uite an adventure despite all the ups and down he comes out of it a wiser and enlightened SikhThe Cult angle is interesting because it gives on an insight of how these organisations work they offer the gift of enlightenment but it is a sham for control and financial benefit It is sad to read about the blindness with these Cult organisationsIndia is a fantastic adventure for Guru Sant some mistakes are juvenile but others are those of an innocent man manipluated by people that want to make a uick buck or rupee as in this caseGot to admire the author I learnt a lot of how to deal with the ups and down of life he is uite an inspirationThe author has a great sense of humour which carries him through his adventure and it looks like he has found a friend for life in Mr ShiraEnjoy the read its uite a tale that has a wonderful message about Sikhi

summary Confessions of an American Sikh: Locked up in India, corrupt cops & my escape from a

Of the seeker can provide endless inspiration and satisfaction But like India it can bring you face to face with your deepest fears and weaknesses It is my fervent hope that others will learn from my mistakes and perhaps deepen their own spiritual experience by reading about what I had to go through Thus this book is the story of my spiritual coming of age; my loss of innocence if you will I wish to offer my deepest gratitude to Akal Purkh Waheguru the Creator and Sustainer of the incredible universe in which we live Let me also give thanks to Guru Nanak Sahib and his nine illustrious human successors It is the grace of Guru Nanak that brought me to his teachings and it was his kindness that enabled me to find the true path of Sikhi Finally I humbly offer obeisance to Siri Guru Granth Sahib the word of God and living Guru for all Sikhs Gursant Sin. The book is what I feel is an honest account Gursant Singh trapped in India under trumped up charges What started off as a simple trip to have dental work done and a visit to what he considered his holy temple turned into a nightmare He describes in detail his own history the history of 3HO and a short version of the Sikh historyWhilst engaging there are parts that are hard going hence the 4 starMy eyes were opened about Yogi Bhajan kundalini yoga the India justice system and the troubles in India that I do recollect from the news years ago although not in the way he described it Always good to have a different perspective on the news which is usually biased

    My review from the US site A very entertaining read The author takes you to India as he struggles with the legal system and tries hilariously to maneuver around a foreign and confusing culture As you go with Gursant on his misadventures you also get peaks into his past as a part of Yogi Bhajan's Gora Sikhs through flashbacks At the end I fel
