I received a copy from the author in return of an honest review. When I read the blurb I was really excited and finished this book in one sitting.
Inspired by the life of a sparrow that leads a carefree life, Partibhan, a young and reluctant guru takes off on an amazing journey in evolution. He believes that human beings can become powerful creators, and achieve much more but the desire to secure the future makes them mere survivors. Between birth and death, evolution is the only constant, which humans can achieve by giving up self-limiting practices.
Partibhan sets out to test spiritual principles at a practical level, with the exceptional 600 kilometer journey on foot without money and belongings. He wishes to demonstrate that man’s fixation on materialism and the need to accumulate is overrated: Survival isn’t the goal of life. A much bigger role, a higher calling awaits us.
Can Partibhan and his followers overcome hardships on the way to find the answers they seek? Are they able to prove that spirituality isn’t an impractical concept as many have come to believe but is inseparable from evolution? What insights do they come across? What does their journey prove and what is its power packed message for you? Do they discover peace and joy? How is it different from happiness?
Discover all this and much more in this path breaking, evolutionary new writing that explores the higher meaning of life and demonstrates practically how one can achieve peace and joy while leading a meaningful and creative life
I’m not someone who read a lot of spiritual or self-help type of books. I was totally intrigued by the cover and the title. The reference of sparrows in the title and on the book cover is really fascinating.
The book is about the journey of a few people who take to discover self. It is about discovering yourself, your true self and not what world see’s you as or the image you portray to the world.
The language is simple and easy to understand. The narration is very good. The way the journey is described and the incidents during the journey are realistic.
The pace of the book is also good, it kept me hooked till I finished the book. There is an element of drama, mystery and thrill as well.
The climax of the book was outstanding, I just could not imagine that an Indian author would choose such an ending. I will not talk any further about the climax.
Overall, it is a good read. It is something that all of us have read in the past or heard various spiritual gurus talk about, however, when you read it in the form of a story and teaching associated with incidents it somewhere stays with you.
I liked the book. It is a good short read. I would rate it a 3.5/5.
