All of us may fantasize about leaving our daily lives to devote ourselves to a higher calling and finding enlightenment. Donald Schnell did, and The Initiation is his story. In 1997 Schnell was summoned to India by his childhood Guru and inducted into one of India’s oldest monastic traditions, The Order of the Swamis. As Prema Baba Swamiji (“Revered Father of Divine Love”), Schnell explored big questions such as “Who am I?” and “Why am I here?” as well as discovered mysterious, mystical truths that only an open-minded spiritual adventurer could find. The Initiation is a classic tale of a spiritual awakening and transformation.
