Swāmī Rāma was an Indian yogi. Swami Rama authored dozens of books, published in India and America, which generally describe the path he took to become a yogi. He discusses the philosophy, practice and benefits of such practices as yoga and meditation. In an early co-authored book, Yoga and Psychotherapy (1976), Hatha Yoga is presented with reference to western psychology. One of the common themes expressed in such books as Enlightenment Without God and Living with the Himalayan Masters is the ability of any person to achieve peace without the need for a structured religion. He was critical of the tendency for yogis to use supernatural feats to demonstrate their enlightenment, arguing that these only demonstrated the ability to perform a feat. His best known work, Living With the Himalayan Masters, reveals the many facets of this singular adept and demonstrates his embodiment of the living tradition.
