A spiritual life is a creative process, a path of devotion, and a journey of self-discovery. Photographer Derek Biermann traveled to northern India to obtain what became a rare and privileged insight into the sacred lives of devotees following different spiritual paths. He asked each of these individuals the same questions: What is faith? What is truth? What is reality? What is love? What issamadhi?With their blessing, the answers to these questions were recorded and transcribed and are presented here as a unique insight into the process of obtainingsamadhi-the direct experience of the conscious Self.Samadhiis described as the deepest level of meditation in which the mind becomes completely absorbed in the uninterrupted contemplation of reality and ceases to function other than as pure consciousness. Each response is accompanied by a superb portrait photograph, taken by Biermann, which documents a special exchange of spiritual perspectives. What intrinsically binds all of these people together is their faith. Their knowledge and wisdom guide us toward a further understanding of the depths of spirituality in India.
