Stage Ten – The Road Back

There was never a road back for Dhyanyogi-ji; the road always moved forward.  However, if the Hero’s Journey defines the Road Back as the return to the Ordinary World, there was never a world quite so ordinary as the United States.  Dhyanyogi-ji sent Dileepji to America to study and prepare.  He came later with Asha Ma and spent four years (1976 – 1980) in this ‘ordinary world’, giving Shaktipat and gathering a small group of American disciples.  He was ninety-eight years old when he made the journey to America.
If the “road back” was his return to India, that was not a seemingly triumphant return, but one accompanied by poor physical health and a slowing down.  He was one-hundred and two years old.
