Warrior of Light

I can't forgive myself for not getting my hands on this book earlier than this. Been reading Paulo Coelho's Manual of the Warrior of Light and can't stop wondering why I wasn't alert enough to pick up this book when I first heard about (and read) The Alchemist many years ago. Anyways, I guess sometimes books come to you when you're 'good' for them. This isn't a silly and convenient explanation for what has happened but I really believe this is so. A simple example of this, in retrospective, is the order in which I get to read my own book-collection. I have such a huge collection of books that I need to spend some time to even choose one of the books from my own bookshelf - as I consume them lazily one after another. As a consequence, sometimes, I am pleasantly surprised by a book that I happen to read two years (shameful, eh?) after I've purchased the book! Anyways, the Warrior of Light is a gem. Full of wisdom. Perhaps inspired by the Bhagavad Gita apart from other conventional spiritual wisdom from across the globe. I am enjoying it. :-)

Hey Aart!
:-) Thanks so much for locating my post and leaving a comment on it. Guess what? I did get to know a few months back about PC's blog and visited it a few times. Thanks for reminding me about it and bringing it back to me. I've now subscribed to the feeds so I will not have to remember to visit it. :-) Here's hoping that you continue to spread his wisdom! :)
