The Pilgrimage….

Hello friends..I am back after a long time….I was very busy with my Exam,so I had to concentrate a lot on my academic studies..as a result I wasn’t able to read books outside my studies….

my exam finished on 5th january this year..so finally I got a chance to read books again…

The book I finished reading today is ‘The Pilgrimage’ by Pulo Coelho..He is one of my favourite writer…..and I have to say he is an incredible writer…..

The book is about writers spiritual journey or I should say a pilgrimage to an ancient and nearly forgotton road by modern people,the route of pilgrimage to “Santiago de Compostela” on foot….The book contains writers own experience on the strange road to santiago…

Map of the road to Santiago…

The writer and his guide Petrus makes this pilgrimage on the ancient road to Santiago in hope to find his sword …..it is the road on which for centuries pilgrims all over the world made the sacred journey to pay homage to the Saints and Virgin Mary…..

This book tells us the story of the spiritual experience which the writer experiences throughout this journey..how he faces challenges ,defeats devils ,Universal love ,his triumph over his fear and how he faced his fears….

In this book reader will get to know about spiritual RAM practices..which is taught by writers guide Petrus…The writer learns those practices from his guide and practices these on his way to Santiago de Copostela and how he used those technics on various occasion….

I loved and enjoyed this book sooooo much…this book made me think of my inner soul , the sleeping goodness that is hidden in every human beings….The beauty of God and his entire creation…

And last but no means at least, I will encourage everyone to read this wonderful book……

Dalai Lama’s words…

“I would regard a compassionate, warm, kind hearted person as healthy. If you maintain a feeling of compassion,loving,kindness then something automatically opens your inner door. Through that, you can communicate much more easily with other people. And that feeling of warmth creates a kind of openness. You will find that all human beings are just like you, so you’ll be able to relate to them more easily”——His Holiness The 14th Dalai Lama

The Forty Rules of LOVE….

Hello friends…How are you all…..I am back with another book review…..

First of all I want to thank writer “Elif Shafak” for writing this beautiful book…She did a wonderful job ….I liked her writing so sooo much… I am a fan of her now….She is an award-winning novelist and most widely read woman writer in Turkey..She writes in both English and Turkish….

Now lets go right to our main topic ” The Forty Rules of Love”…friends this book is absolutely a wonderful book …The book is maily about Sufism ….It teaches about life through “Rumi and Shams of Tabriz”..it describes the Sufi way of life…how to open the door of your heart and find Love…The devine love for God…it also shows the way develop one’s inner self…

This book is about Ella Rubinstein who has a husband and three children and a pleasant home…Which seems so perfect but actually there is a huge emptiness at her heart….lack of Love…

Ella reads a manuscript about the thirteenth-century Sufi poet Rumi and Shams of Tabriz, and his forty rules of love and life, while reading this her world changed totally….
