Face to Face with Life: Pathways from Struggle to Freedom
In Face to face with Life, Mansukh Patel tells his own personal story of how he came to lead the life he does, how he overcame the challenges and trials he faced, and how he formed friendships that would become the basis of Dru Yoga and the original Life Foundation – work which now spans 5 continents. Mansukh Patel was born in the Kenyan Rift Valley in the midst of the turmoil of the Mau Mau conflict of the 1950s. He witnessed many atrocities first hand, and this early experience would guide his later decisions as his life led him more and more to follow the path of a peacemaker and humanitarian. At the age of 12, Mansukh Patel’s family moved to the UK where the young Mansukh attended entered the schooling system, quickly picking up the English language. By the 1970s Mansukh Patel was studying at Bangor University, and it was there that he met the group of friends with whose lives he would become so intimately entwined. He began to share with these fellow students some of the sacred indigenous teachings of his own parents, and the group embarked together on a spiritual journey that would change their lives forever, and indeed the lives of the hundreds of thousands of people they would come into contact with. Mansukh Patel’s wisdom is simple. It is not based on anyone’s tradition or faith, but rather on indigenous knowledge that has been passed down to him through many generations. His message is clear: reach for the very highest in life.
