A spiritual aspirant's journey is sprinkled with many battles overcoming mind over matter through different sādhanās (spiritual practices). One such sādhanā is going on a pilgrimage, which provides challenges for the body, mind and intellect. In 1948, a young sādhaka embarked on a rare pilgrimage of discovery through the splendour of Uttarakhand. Often going without food, sleeping where he puts his bundle down for the night, lashed by the cold northern wind, he established a deep communion with nature. The memoir penned by the sādhaka at the end of each long treacherous day, is interspersed with humour, sketches and poetry inspired by the majestic surroundings. This young sādhaka was Swami Chinmayananda. My Trek through Uttarakhanda is personal and delectable narrative of Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda’s trek across the Himalayan terrain.
