A long-awaited trip to New York, an alarm clock that doesn’t go off, a useless race to the airport. And then, as the last chance for departure fades, an unexpected gift from a stranger. The protagonist of this story is unaware that when he casually accepts a proposal to travel to Tibet, he is actually saying yes to his destiny.
Nothing happens by chance and, now that the gears are in motion, his eyes are about to open on an unimaginable reality. From a fortuitous encounter begins his initiatory path in a Tibetan monastery where, thanks to the wise words of an old monk, he discovers surprising truths and the existence of a new world and a new self.
A self-publishing success in Italy, <strong>The Monk With No Past</strong> is a tale of enlightenment, a companion for interior growth, and a guide to abandoning mental schemes as you journey toward greater awareness.
“<em>It is impossible for you to search for truth because you would have no chance of finding it. Finding something assumes that you have been separated from the object you are seeking. You have not been separated from truth: you are truth. It is your most intimate nature. How can you find something you already are? It is like looking for your glasses without realizing they are sitting on your nose. Put your efforts instead into cleaning house with the purpose of eliminating everything that is not true and that obscures the vision of who you are. This is your task.</em>”
<strong>Comments from the Italian edition readers:</strong>
"<em>A beautiful, insightful book to read and then re-read to catch all of its subtleties… A wonderful journey in search of the essence of human nature and the magic that comes from undertaking a path toward self-knowing and self-awareness.</em>"
"<em>In a few pages and with an engaging style of writing, the author succeeds in condensing age-old wisdom that leads toward spiritual illumination and shows us how to be fully present in this earthly life. The teachings are expressed with such lucidity and clarity that the path seems accessible to everyone.</em>"
"<em>I strongly recommend reading this book as it’s full of things to think about. Get ready to question everything you think you already know.</em>"
"<em>A story to read in one sitting for its captivating narration, but it also brings the reader face to face with personal responsibility in attaining one’s desires.</em>"
