Book - 2014
Rate this:
Albert Rudolph, affectionately known as Rudi, was a spiritual original, a maverick yogi whose teachings transformed the lives of thousands of emerging spiritual seekers. Before The Sun: Meeting Rudi chronicles the astounding day-to-day events by John Mann, one of Rudi's first students who managed to survive the rollercoaster ride of studying Kundalini yoga in the tumultuous 1960s of New York City under the tutelage of arguably one of the most profound and adept masters of inner work. The book represents Mr. Mann's experience as Rudi's student and friend, taken as an indirect approach to the description of Rudi himself and what it was like to be in his presence. Before the Sun: Meeting Rudi is an expanded version of Mr. Mann's book that was originally published in 1987 as Rudi: 14 Years with my Teacher. But in the course of editing 14 Years about one-third of the first manuscript was eliminated for various reasons. This new edition might be called the author's cut, reinstating big chunks of the book and adding many never-before-seen images.
