The Near and the Dear
Stories of Neem Karoli Baba and his Devotees
Author: Dada Mukejee

"When you read these stories about Maharaj-ji and his devotees you step into a place and a time that is outside the boundaries of your own memories. You meet people whose lives were forever changed by a word or a look from the great Indian saint Neem Karoli Baba." -Krishna Das

In The Near and The Dear, Dada Mukerjee tells his own story of time spent with Maharaj-ji, and relates stories about other sadhus and devotees who came to be with Neem Karoli Baba. For a little while you spend time in another culture unlike the United States but not unfamiliar, because to be on a spiritual path is a journey of opening the heart wherever you live. Mukerjee helps you discover commonalities with others despite cultural differences. Along with the stories of devotees who came to see Maharaj-ji, you read about how Maharaj-ji gave to each what he needed for his own spiritual journey. Mukerjee shows you the endlessly adaptable Guru working with his followers, not through coercion, intimidation, or fear, but with overwhelming compassion, understanding, and acceptance. You'll find yourself marveling at what you can accomplish when you follow your heart.

The book also contains rare photos of Neem Karoli Baba and his devotees.
