Born in Russia in 1907, Irina Tweedie suffered the tragic loss of her husband in 1954. It was a result of this experience - whilst searching for consolation and a meaning to life - that her spiritual discovery began. Some five years later, her search took her to India - to the Sufi teacher who was to revolutionize her life. Written as a diary of her observations, this book is a detailed record of the authors spiritual training. The author continued to deepen and develop this sense of the presence of her teacher, even after his death. Her diaries explore in a profound way the emotional ups and downs of the spiritual path. Irinaa relationship with her teacher is unusual in its impersonal nature and its lack of intellectual content. The relationship illustrates how the powerful presence of a spiritual guide or guru can tacitly and indirectly influence the student causing radical changes in his or her personality, and increasing spiritual depth.
