      Himalayas - Himalayas - People: Of the four principal language families in the Indian subcontinent—Indo-European, Tibeto-Burman, Austroasiatic, and Dravidian—the first two are well represented in the Himalayas. In ancient times, peoples speaking languages from both families mixed in varying proportions in different areas. Their distribution is the result of a long history of penetrations. Hariakhan Babaji Maharaj is a yogi living in the Himalayas who is reputed to be thousands of years old. He appeared to thousands during the 19th and 20th centuries and his stories have been documented by many. He is thought to be one of the guardians of the well being of civilization. Here are a small collection of his stories and a few early photographs of the great saint.

      Much of the book focuses on the tension between the high moral value placed on family unity on the one hand, and the inevitable conflicts within it on the other. This highly readable book describes the author's own experiences in the field as well as ritual healing practices such as divination, sacrifice, and exorcism.   It is the same as that expounded by Ramanuja; and Ramanuja followed Bodhayana in his interpretations of the Brahma Sutras. Ramanuja's sect of Vaishnavas is called by the name Sri Sampradaya. Ramanuja wrote also three other books--Vedanta Sara (essence of Vedanta), Vedanta Sangraha (a resume of Vedanta) and Vedanta Deepa (the light of Vedanta).

      This magmatic range is known as the Trans-Himalaya - a term coined by Alexander Cunningham in his book Ladak (). The Trans-Himalaya was extensively explored by the 'Pundits' of the Indian Survey during the ss and by the Swedish geographer Sven Hedin, author of the three-volume book, Trans-Himalaya ().   "This is an extraordinarily fine ethnography, the result of the author's many years of familiarity with the Harijans of Garhwal. It is a classic example of the work of a dying breed of anthropologists. This is a compelling book, dealing with a deeply moving human situation and bringing it to the reader in simple, powerful language."Reviews: 2.
