Book of the week — The Seeker by Karan Bajaj
A book, whether fiction or non fiction has some infuence on its readers. Like the book I have chosen for this week. The Seeker by Karan Bajaj, is a work of fiction and yet will leave a very pleasent impact. This book is for all those who enjoy meditation and are looking for a meaningful life to live. This book will remind you a little of siddhartha. It takes you on a journey of all the myths and beliefs about yoga, meditation, vedas and India.
Time and again people have flocked from all over the globe in search of peace to India. Whether they find peace or no is a different story, but they learn a bit about themselves and that quenches their thirst for peace atleast for a while.
The reason I chose this book is because we are all seekers in life. We seek happiness, love, peace, answers, solutions, this story of max talks about how a seeker begins his journey and how far is he willing to withstand all that his journey throws at him. His patience is tested. His eagerness is questioned. His reatlessness is calmed. This book, if read with a calm mind will talk to you, asking you about your journey.
This is book is a must have if you meditate or practice yoga. This can be a new genre for those hoping to explore to read something different.
The synopsis of the book is as follows –
“After a personal loss, Max, a wallstreet banker, sets out on a quest to find the cause of human pain and suffering. His journey takes him from New York to a hidden ashram in South India to a freezing cave high in the Himalayas. Soon he starts to develop extraordinary powers. But will Max, investment banker turned Himalayan yogi, find the answers that led him to India? The seeker is both a gripping adventure and a story of a man’s inner transformation, a Siddhartha for our generation.”
Hope you enjoy reading this as much as I did! I’d love to know about your views on the book.
