The living teaching of the American-born spiritual master, Lee Lozowick, the founder of the Western Baul Tradition, is here expressed and encoded in 9 volumes (the 1st is no longer available) of his personal journals. Each book contains thirty or more of Lee’s spontaneous essays (he tells the reader that no editing is made) written one-a-day over the course of several months at a time, beginning in 1990 to present day. Commenting upon these writings, Lee remarked that everything prior to these books that was credited to him was “about the teaching.” With the publication of these journals he remarked, “these are the teaching.” No linear continuity will be found herein. These books capture the mind, heart and mood of the spiritual master as he reflects upon life as it is. They are guaranteed to provoke, delight, outrage, and enlighten.

This final volume of Baul Khepa Lee Lozowick (1943-2010) continues the intimate narrative conversation with his master, Yogi Ramsuratkumar, written as poetry in the classical ninda stuti (ironical praise) form of traditional India. This beautiful hardbound volume also chronicles the last years of the poet's life and bears testimony to the profound love of disciple and master, which endures beyond death into the greater Life of the spirit. With additional commentaries by Dr. Robert Svoboda, Gilles Farcet, and and Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee.
