The book provokes you to think beyond traditional ways of education or enlightenment. A professor's journey to being a monk is quite engaging. Dissatisfied with contemporary psychology theories, Prof Richard Alpert finds drugs that allow him temporary "oneness". Soon and quite obviously, he leaves Harvard to begin his voyage of spirituality to the east. He finally finds peace with Neem Karoli Baba, near Kathgodam, Uttarakhand.

After his initial essays, there are some posters on his ideas of "oneness". They do look cult-ish.
