Blurb:

The paranormal thriller is a true account of Kapil and provides an interesting fascination for those who are interested in the supernatural. The book is nothing less than a fantasy. The book, which is a mystical thriller which is based on the author’s true account, gives a glimpse on how the occult world operates The true spiritual story explains the existence of the dark side of the spiritual white world paranormal world which is as much real and any ordinary person can get caught in the illusion of the world unless one is careful. The existence of the paranormal and the supernatural world is as much real and any ordinary person can get caught in that world unless one is careful. We belong to such a period of time wherein innocent seekers are lured into the trap of so-called “Masters” who fool them easily by playing onto their deepest fears and weakness.

The book hopes to save people from making that false step and even if one does commit that mistake, the book offers hope that it is not the end of the world; one can always get to the Light,

A thrilling true account of an ordinary man plunged into extraordinary circumstances of the Dark World.

Review:

A book one would love to hold close to his heart to delve into the mystical realms of the paranormal world is this, The Reminiscences Of A Seeker. It is dark, enigmatic, weird and fantastic – all at once.  Being a first-hand account of the author himself, the book holds credibility. I am deeply moved by his experiences and the turmoil that he underwent during his search for his Divine Master.

The book narrates the journey of its protagonist towards the truth. He is in a constant dilemma of choosing a Guru for himself. In his pursuit to find the one, he stumbles upon several masters who turn out to be fake or not the kind of one he is desiring to have. He explains, “A Sadhguru does not make disciples, he makes Masters.” A true teacher would not want to have a copious amount of followers. He would rather prefer to carve out an impeccable master out of his handful but devoted students.

The book takes you on a ride of graves, souls, death, ghosts, hallucination, cremation, and so many other things that we wouldn’t actually discuss in our lives. We are afraid of stepping into a grave, the protagonist reluctantly enters. His quest for truth pushes him into doing things that he later wistfully regret. Several instances don’t seem to convince your heart that they are actually true. It all appears fictitious. But the truth pricks our head and we come to believe that this has actually happened.

The narration is subtle and intriguing. The smooth flow of the story coupled with the amazing presentation in the form of language, expressions, and knowledge makes the book a fantastic read. A different genre is bound to attract a lot of readers. The book has its own identity as it deals with things which are way apart from our normal stories. The narrative scares you, frightens you, might even make you cry out of fear, and then proceeds towards the attainment of the truth. The realization of the Real has got to do a lot with this book.

Moreover, it is not just the truth that confronts you, the book also offers you bits of enlightenment that shows you the way to light. Some of the nuggets of wisdom I picked from the book are:

  • Nothing can remain static. We are always in motion, towards the divine light or towards darkness.
  • Anger, harsh words and criticism damage your aura, your energy field and leaves you vulnerable. Not only do you lose positive energy from those cracks and holes but you also allow negativity to enter. So practice Sanyam.
  • Ego is like a mad elephant which is ridden by our blind heart and blind mind and which ultimately destroys our real selves.
  • None can resolve your karma; you have to face its consequences.

The knowledge this book exudes is worth acquiring. However, if you are not into the dark world at all, this book may not interest you. Like I found it nondescript because I have no belief in the occult practices. The Title is apt as the book is actually all about the journey of a seeker – a seeker of truth. In addition to this, the cover though quite mundane is slightly indicative of the plotline. The book covers the concepts that would guide an ignorant towards the destination of the cognition. Hence, it is a book that brings you out from the darkness and directs you towards the light.

If you have a willingness to read things out of your normal routine; if you wish to know about the hush affairs of the dark world; if paranormal interests you and if you are keen to bring something new to your shelves, Go For This Book!
