Indian Journals collects Ginsbergs writing from a 1962-63 stay in India. It is wonderfully eclectic, visionary, at times intensely private, and always in possession of a hallucinatory clarity that affirms Ginsbergs truly great ability, as well as his ebullient spirit. Indian Journals took half a decade to transcribe and edit- when it was originally published in 1970 it catalyzed a large movement of young Western pilgrims to explore India and Eastern thought.

This new edition contains an updated and expanded section of newly discovered photographs taken by Ginsberg during his time spent in India. The perfect combination of text and images, Indian Journals is testimony to Ginsbergs passionate interest in Eastern religion and mysticism and contains the raw materials for some of his most important poems.
