The Sadhu: When realities collide

Front Cover
Virgin Comics, 2007 - Comics & Graphic Novels - 196 pages
"Sadhus do not know love or hate, desire or fear. They are detached from all emotional ties, devoting themselves to a spiritual journey said to unleash unimaginable powers. It is this ancient tradition that James Jensen is fated to tread but he must first tackle his biggest obstacle yet - himself. When James Jensen, a down-on-his-luck Englishman, is recruited into her majesty Queen Victoria's army and posted with his family in Colonial India, he takes the first step towards meeting his destiny. But a tragic twist of fate sends James on a journey that will force him to choose between spiritual awakening and human instinct, guiding him from a simple soldier to a spiritual warrior"--P. [4] of cover, v. 1.

About the author (2007)

Deepak Chopra was born in New Delhi, India in 1946. He was educated as a medical doctor, specializing in endocrinology, at All India Institute of Medical Sciences. He served as Chief of Staff at Boston Regional Medical Center, and has taught at Tufts and Boston University Medical Schools. He recognized limitations in the ways that his medical education approached treatment of individuals. Introduced to the ancient methods of Hindu healing, known as Ayurveda, by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, he saw a way to add a spiritual dimension to treatment of illness. Chopra's thinking led him to develop a theory that he called Quantum Healing, which combines Western and Hindu medical practice. In 1984, Chopra brought Ayurvedic medicine to the United States, and within a year he established the Ayurvedic Health Centre of Stress Management and Behavioral Medicine in Lancaster, Massachusetts. He is also the founding President of the American Association of Ayurvedic Medicine and eventually founded the Chopra Center for Wellbeing. He has written more than 55 books including Ageless Body, Timeless Mind: The Quantum Alternative to Growing Old; Creating Health: How to Wake Up the Body's Intelligence; Creating Affluence: The A-to-Z Steps to a Richer Life; The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success: A Practical Guide to the Fulfillment of Your Dreams; The Shadow Effect and Muhammad: A Story of the Last Prophet; Spiritual Solutions: Answers to Life's Greatest Challenges; and Super Brain: Unleashing the Explosive Power of Your Mind to Maximize Health, Happiness, and Spiritual Well-Being. He has won numerous awards including a Quill Award for Peace Is the Way and the grand prize at the 2005 Nautilus Book Awards for The Book of Secrets. He also writes novels including The Return of Merlin; Soulmate; and Jesus: A Story of Enlightenment.
