I heard about this book first time while I was in Jaipur. I had enrolled for a pranic healing course and our instructor for the course recommended us this book. The kind of book lover I am and plus in my pursuit of spirituality, I immediately made a note of the recommendation. The course got over and then I got busy with certain other things.

It's an spiritual book that guides you and gives a clear picture of the intentions of nature behind every suffering and success which we get in our life. It is for the cleansing of the karma that we suffer and it is most beloved of the god that suffers the most due to increased pace of cleansing.

Nature only sees the intentions and effort, it is only mankind that gives a rank for the work done.
Effort never goes to waste, we get the fruit in this life or the other. Thus give a best shot in whatever you do and leave the rest to god and accept the result with complete grace and positive surrender. Masters and gurus are always with us longing for our attention and directing us to the right path but many a times we ignore them and we cause delay in our advancement on spiritual journey.
All the answers which a person seeks lie within the person itself. Its just the person has to focus within himself where all emotions and attachments cease to exist and nothing but god prevails. Concentrating consistently on the light within will help us to merge ourselves with the divine light. May 30, gurpreet kaur rated it really liked it. Spiritual lessens dealt in a simple and easily understandable manner.
I liked the explanation of various kinds and levels of faith. Some quotes from the book:- 1. The one who makes the thunder roar, also hears a butterfly sigh. Why you did- what you did, is more important than, what came about what you did. No good deed ever goes unnoticed and no wrong thought or action goes unseen and unaccounted. May 26, Ruchika Sandell rated it it was amazing. A super awesome book. It really teaches you how to live in surrender to the divine.
It seems like the divine himself has actually channeled this book through the author. It is a good bedside book too Aug 30, Meghana rated it did not like it. The result is The Fakir. The prose and meandering storyline of this novel are excruciatingly bad. But that aside, the long winded monologues of the guru in this book do not offer any appealing or fresh insights. I've encountered the same proverbs and quotes in many other books, and this one did not manage to redeem itself in any way.
My father enjoyed this novel immensely and coaxed me to read it. Perhaps it would appeal more to someone who's older, but it's definitely not a book I would recommend. Aug 02, Sree rated it really liked it. Ruzbeh N. What does karma mean? If everything is pre-ordained and everything is destined according to karma then why work? Is God vengeful and angry?
Trips to mystics, god-men or esoteric experiences will not satiate the heart with peace. But self-realization through introspection and contemplation will.
At times, it might seem that life is unfair. What we are not aware is that our current life is one in a series of lives and we carry over our accumulated karma, the cumulative consequence of every thought and deed, across lives.
Each life time is an opportunity to perfect ourselves and become the best version of ourselves. In other words, each life time is an opportunity to clear our karmic debts to people and clean the bad karma we accumulated. As we do this, we clean the dirt that takes away the gloss of our perfect souls and we become God-like. Our Higher-Self is kind, understanding, forgiving, compassionate, nonjudgmental and loving just like God.
Each experience we go through in life helps us learn essential lessons as part of the evolution of the soul. No suffering is useless. No suffering is meaningless. As we go through difficulties and progress through our life lessons with a conscious awareness we shed our karmic debts. The inner radiance of our heart masked by accumulated karma shines through again. Through the stillness of contemplation and compassionate actions we discover our God-self.
This is the profound message Fakir conveys. Feb 24, Shea rated it liked it. It fails when it comes to the writing as I found the actual writing to be very subpar. However, the themes discussed in the book are done in an easy to understand way, and by mid-story, the story carried the book, rather than the writing. Her literary collection in her parent's house is great, and I was surprised to find out this book is not even in the Goodreads database.
I just started it, but so far it is an incredibly uplifting story It fails when it comes to the writing as I found the actual writing to be very subpar. I just started it, but so far it is an incredibly uplifting story, with a large focus on the importance of a 'master' and the meaning of 'karma'.
May 01, Archana rated it it was amazing. A fine insight into life's many questions that we need answers for. Read and re read Aug 21, Mita rated it really liked it. It's a good, heartfelt book but I liked it in parts. Certain principal explained very beautifully and leaves you to introspect. It hurts you in the present lifetime, but may be that is the only way you learn the lesson".
The footnotes were well cherished. The monologue stretches a bit more than normal. I know that the author was trying to drive home some points but It's a good, heartfelt book but I liked it in parts.

The book had various lessons to learn on simple things we do in daily life, wanted to share with all :. You might say that you spend all your time alone but you know the boy, only a fool thinks he is ever alone. God and your guides, your spirits Guides are always there around you. It is so selfish and ungrateful to eat without offering all you eat and drink to them and inviting them to share whatever you eat along with you. This is mandatory. Without praying this, the life force of the prayer is virtually nonexistent.
