Everyone loves a good fable, and this is certainly one. The protagonist is Julian Mantle, a high-profile attorney with a whacked-out schedule and a shameful set of spiritual priorities. Of course it takes a crisis (heart attack) to give Mantle pause. And pause he does–suddenly selling all his beloved possessions to trek India in pursuit of a meaningful existence. The Himalayan gurus along the way give simple advice, such as, “What lies in the back of you and what lies before you is nothing in comparison to what lies within you.” Yet it is easy to forgive the story’s simplicity because every kernel of wisdom is framed to address the persistent angst of Western white-collar professionals.
Here is the story of Julian Mantle, a superstar lawyer whose out-of-balance way of life leads him to a near-fatal heart attack in a packed courtroom. His physical collapse brings him into a religious crisis that forces him to confront the condition of his life. Hoping to find happiness and fulfillment, he embarks upon an peculiar odyssey to an ancient culture, where he discovers a powerful system to release the potential for his mind, body, and soul and learns to live with passion, purpose, and peace. Brilliantly blending ancient spiritual wisdom of the east with up to date success principles of the West, this inspiring tale provides a step by step approach to living with greater courage, balance, abundance and joy.
