Buy the book of Mirdad from flipkart
Highly quoted by Osho that made me to give it a try..This was my first purchase from flipkart back in 2008..The book is about Mirdad, who leaves everything to visit a temple, on a mountain top in a remote place ,built hundreds of years ago..Pathway described as extremely dangerous doesn't deter Mirdad from his journey, through sheer perseverance facing hardships he finally wakes up at the doorstep..Following are the spiritual revelation...Anyone with high spiritual quotient would definitely want to read it over and over again...Had you liked Alchemist , I wouldn't say you would like this book but book of Mirdad is for people who love deeper and mystic phase of spiritual being..There are deeper meaning said as a matter of fact, one has to be completely absorbed in the book to get the right tone or things would go over the head like a swish of hard breeze..Initially I found it heavy to appreciate but once then I understood that the book needs a different treat altogether ,I got the hang of it.. I slowed down so I could perceive and enjoy the whole experience of reading it...I found it poetic and extremely beautiful that I started moving along Mirdad accompanying him in his journey and all seemed delightful till end..The distinction between pride and ego, mystic believes about god , arrogance..Aloofness of pride and the importance of meekness is all a wonderful treat for the reader..
Quotes that hit me hard were the following:
"Often you shall think your road impassable, somber and companionless.have will and plod along; and round each curve you shall find a new companion"
Next one is hard to be followed
"Be neither volatile to joy nor condensable to sorrow. But be serenely equitable to both"..
