SWAMI HARI: I AM A SIMPLE FOREST MONK is a collection of reflections on the life and excerpts from the teachings of a Himalayan forest monk.   

"Swami Hari made many friends over the 10 years that he traveled around the world. These were his “brothers” and “sisters” as he liked to call them. But even though in that time he became very worldly, he never lost his child-like wonder about the world. Like a child, his laugh came easily and naturally and was very infectious. He could never quite believe that a poor forest monk from the Himalayas who had been living in isolation for many years had somehow become a world traveler... He tried to teach all of us how to laugh and shake our heads as we go through life, even if things don’t always go exactly as planned." Excerpt from the prologue of Swami Hari: I am a simple forest monk
