Introduction


John Lucas, an Englishman, first came to Goa in the early 70s, a time when thousands of young Westerners like him headed eastwards along the Hippy Trail. Disillusioned with life in the West, these youngsters came in search of a new life, which they thought the great spiritual systems of the orient might have to offer.
