With 'Dog, Yogi, Banyan Tree' there is a move to a different genre of writing from his other numerous publications that focus on his profession and passion - homeopathy.Rajan Sankaran's latest book, 'Dog, Yogi, Banyan Tree' offers us a series of vignettes that describe meetings with various people and a wide range of situations on this journey. Beginning with his formative years with his father, he shares with us his close relationships and interactions with teachers, friends, gurus, patients and colleagues.
The book takes us on a journey, in which the deeper you go, the closer you get to the roots of his experiential and deeply philosophical thinking, and of course, we learn about his indefatigable research into his world of homeopathy.
‘If you are open to learn, everyone and everything becomes your teacher,’ Rajan says. In his own journey he learns about ethics, love, friendship, passion, values, being human and dealing with one’s patterns. He reveals and shares his own life journey for meaning and spirituality.
'We need to find a way inward where peace and joy really abide, we need to navigate the confusing maze of this alluring but ultimately unsatisfying world,’ he says. One of the most revealing lessons in this book is that Rajan’s teachers and gurus come from ‘the most unlikely people or situations, even a dog, or a tree, can be that guide.’ His life stories are shared in a truly entertaining way and give you an opportunity to feel transformed by the meanings within your own self.

Rajan Sankaran describes himself as essentially ‘lazy and stupid,’ by this he means that ‘a lazy person is one who focuses more in life on being rather than doing. On the other hand, a stupid person is one who begins with no prejudice or knowledge and is willing to observe and experience what actually exists, or what is, without any analysis or labels’.
