Autobiography of a Monk
By Shri Acharya Abhidhyanananda Avadhuta

Editor's Introduction


ANATOLE RUSLANOV -- that's the author's given name -- is a westerner who has dedicated his life to the things we write about here. After graduating from an American college he went to India, studied in a monastery, was ordained as a monk, and eventually became a lineage holder of a Tantric tradition. His master was Shri Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar (Shri Shri Anandamurti).

We've been talking with Anatole by email since our site began and have come to respect him tremendously. He speaks and writes in an absolutely straight-forward way. We think he's motivated by a desire to help people rather than by egoism, and he offers genuine knowledge based on both formal training and personal experience. His progress on the path is evident from what he says in the document you are about to read.

The text given here is complete. The ellipses (...) are in the original and do not indicate omissions.
