"The Slave is a compact self-help book with exceptional accessibility and a profundity that encourages repeat reads." - Foreword Reviews
A profound and paradigm-challenging book that guides readers through a transformative journey to personal freedom.
Trapped in a vegetative state, following a terrible accident that has paralyzed his whole body, the narrator is unable to communicate with those around him. Cut off from family and friends so begins an inner conversation with his spiritual guide, a conversation which takes him on a journey of self-realization, bringing him eventually to a new state of consciousness, and an understanding of his deepest self.
Written with an engaging simplicity, this is a truly profound book which can change your life. In fact to use the authors own words, it is designed to shake, shudder and wake us up. It is a book that has nothing to do with success, social recognition, with the accumulation of goods; but everything to do with joy, love and peace.
(From the book)
Anand Dilvar is founder of the Vision Quest Centre in Valle Bravo, Mexico, an OSHO Meditation Center, where for over fifteen years he has run conferences, retreates and seminars. With over 1.8 million copies of The Slave sold in Mexico, he is regularyl invited to appear on radio and TV to share his approach to what he calls the Revolution in Consciousness.
I've rarely read such a profound and beautiful book about humanity and how we should take responsibilities for our actions. The book is short, the writing style is simple yet beautiful, and the story could be read in a day or so, although understanding it is another matter. Surprisingly, I also found myself outraged at a certain nurse and doctor towards the end. I'm really not sure if its a true story or not, but it is a story destined to change the world.
