Arnaud Desjardins (1925-2011), a French spiritual teacher, began his career as a filmmaker for French TV. Through his documentary work in Asia he met eminent spiritual persons of the day, including Anandamayi Ma, Swami Ramdas, Dalai Lama, & Afghani Sufi sages. His introduction to "work on self" came through Gurdjieff's teaching, particularly under Jeanne de Salzmann, & culminated in discipleship to the Hindu teacher, Swami Prajnanpad, who became his root guru. For over forty years, Desjardins worked with thousands of students worldwide, & his teachings are recorded in over 20 published books. Didier deAmorin, translator, first met Desjardins through his books in 1978, at age 18, and claims his life turned around from that point on. A disciple of over 40 years, he spent from 1995-2011 on the staff of his teacher's ashram in the south of France. He married his wife Brigitte in 1980, with the blessing and ongoing guidance of his teacher. The couple have four children. His translation of this book was a labor of love, as he wished to share these profound teachings with English-speaking friends, since they continue to inform his own life at every turn.
