The Mountain Girl
Stories from the Himalayas
by Mark Batterbury

It is the year 1972 and God is alive and well in India. Many young seekers journey from the West to explore yoga and meditation in the land of its origin. In "The Retreat", a young couple's decision to meditate together in a cave leads to endless arguments about what meditation is, and an encounter with ancient night. In "Temple of Dreams", a solitary yogi discovers lost parts of himself in a haunted house. Investigating the mysterious death of a villager's cows introduces a traveller to black magic in "The Mountain Girl". The beauty of the Himalayas, the adventure of the path of yoga, and meetings with inspiring teachers fill these stories with the magic and mystery of the East.
