Book Review: Reminiscences of A Seeker

Summary:

A series of events catapults Kapil into the fascinating world of Dark Arts and suck him into the quagmire of drama, suspense, greed and betrayal. And jusr when the trials and tribulations seem to engulf Kapil completely there emerged from the deepest darkness, a Brilliant Light of his True Master. Reminiscences of A Seeker tells the true story of an ordinary man plunged into extraordinary circumstances of the Dark World. Kapil takes you on his unforgettable true journey of the supernatural world of mystics and higher beings, unbelievable miracles and the parallel world of darkness and light, in his spiritual pursuit of seeking the ONE – who would show him the Ultimate Divine.

My Take:

Abraham Maslow believes that self actualization is the ultimate goal of a person. A person undergoes an ultimate desire for spiritual enlightenment once in their life. Reminiscences of A Seeker is a book that highlights this journey in the most honest way possible – without sugarcoating it.

Kapil’s journey is gripping and a compelling read. It tells you about how things are.

The hopelessness, the struggle, the depression to the lowest point possible, betrayal, envy, and the fight from one’s own self and desires… and in the end, the elation of Ultimate Guidance.

Pros:

Well-written: Usually, non-fiction lacks the appeal of being an engaging read. Such is not the case with this book.

Honest: As stated previously, this book is not sugarcoated – and that is one of it’s appeals.

A good perspective for people looking for spiritual guidance.

Cons:

At the first glance, it seems scattered as it is written in a memoir form.

It’s a bit long to be a quick read. You’ll also need to invest your mind as some incidents seem to haunt you.

Content Warning:

None.

Overall Rating:

4/5

One Line:

In a world where religion has become a business, books like these remind us the necessity of spirituality and Divine Guidance.

Excerpt:

No one can cheat me… I went ahead and taught him a lesson.

He lost his mind and started behaving like a madman. One day, on a busy road, he started removing his clothes. The police had arrived, and thinking he was mentally unsound, took him to the mental asylum. After a few days, his wife and elder son came to me and begged for mercy. They then gave me double the amount to spare his life.

There was an uncanny silence in the room after Asurnath narrated the incident. Though he showed as if he was addressing his disciples, I knew it was strongly directed towards me; he was warning me. All throughout there was a hint of irritation in his voice. I could sense there was something in my dream which had threatened him and he was telling me what he could do when angry.

His message was loud and clear… no one could cross his path unscathed.
