Sometimes he walks outside the cave, but at other times he won舗t come out at all for days at a time. There are three to five advanced students with him all the time. For three months in the winter my master and his disciples come down to a height of 7,000 to 8,000 feet. He sometimes travels to Nepal and stays for a few months seven miles from Namcha Barwar. He generally drinks goat舗s milk and at times the milk of a tiny black shyama cow, a pet who is looked after by the students there. From time to time I would give my master a drink of half water and half goat舗s milk.
No one who came near him ever went away empty-handed. His gifts were of different shapes, sizes, and weights舒upon touching his feet, a businessman might be blessed with prosperity, a sick man with health, and a student with knowledge. Some understood what they had received; others did not. Now I look back and wonder at how beautifully he unveiled the spiritual mysteries while skillfully hiding his identity as one of the greatest sages from the Himalayan peaks. Swami Rama was fully established in his own self-nature.
I devoutly believe him to be a yogi of immortal wisdom and to be one of the greatest masters of the Himalayas. His reason for living is to enlighten those who are prepared, and to love, protect, and guide those who are still preparing. Anyone in difficulty who remembers him is helped. I know this, for many times it has happened to me and several others. Whenever I find time from my busy schedule I have a strong desire to go back to him, for he is my only guide. With all possible reverence and devotion I pay homage to him wherever I am.
