'Via Rishikesh: En Route to Chittavrittinirodha'
The real life chronicle of a crazy quest, an epic hitchhiking trip, way back when...
A trip taken without preparation or proper funds, from England, through Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East, to India.
Paul Mason was just 18 years old when the notion of visiting India stirred in him. In order to raise money for his travels he began selling off his possessions, but unable to raise enough ready cash for the flight, he decided instead to hitchhike there, accompanied by Yolanda, his Italian girlfriend.
The journey wasn't envisaged as a vacation but a pilgrimage of sorts, an exploration of both inner and outer life, which, totally unexpectedly, resulted in the discovery and exploration of authentic Yoga Meditation.
