This massive three-volume biography of H.W.L. Poonja, known to his devotees as Papaji, is one of the most comprehensive attempts ever made to document the life and teachings of a self-realized person.
Papaji gave the biographer David Godman full access to all his papers, answered many of his detailed questions, encouraged all his devotees to contribute stories to the project and read and checked all the chapters.
Papaji was a direct disciple of Sri Ramana Maharshi. He is largely responsible for the satsang movement in the West because he helped hundreds of Westerners attain glimpses of the Self and then sent them home to teach.
The third volume of ‘Nothing Ever Happened’ covers the period when Papaji travelled extensively in the West in the 70s and 80s, as well as further adventures and meetings with devotees in India. The book concludes with two important chapters: a long selection from his journals, written in the early 1980s, and extensive dialogues in which Papaji explains the role and function of the guru in the process of liberation.
