About The Book
A remarkable story of fortitude, perseverance and spiritual awakening Young Sankalpâ€™s family is brutally murdered by a band of soldiers led by Darqan Doodra, a renegade general feared across the kingdom of Lhasa. He is barely able to escape with his life. Seeking refuge in the mountains surrounding his once idyllic village, he stumbles upon a wondrous cave where he meets Kalimpong, the fabled monk possessed of great powers and learning. Struck by what he senses within Sankalp, the monk takes him as his disciple. Thus begins the young boyâ€™s incredible journey. Guided by Kalimpong, he overcomes his pain and anger and seeks to understand why fate dealt him such a terrible blow. With his mind awakened to a higher perception, he is able to go beyond the limitations of the physical self, to become a â€˜mind-travellerâ€™, crossing to a dimension beyond the known laws of the universe, where he is granted a divine vision. Sankalp the warrior monk must now chart his course to the glorious city of Lhasa, to a court rife with treachery, conspiracy and rumour. Although his chosen path is fraught with danger, Sankalp knows he must fight, both for the sake of his people and for the peace of his soul.
About Viveck Rai Marwah
Viveck Rai Marwah was born in Delhi and has a degree in business management. Inspired by his proclivity for spiritual and philosophical discourses, his first book, A Passage Through Life: A Saga of Life, Death and Beyond, was published in 2004.
He has personally encountered many mystics in the last fifteen years on regular journeys to the lower Himalayas. His keen interest in philosophy, religion, and mysticism took him to Tibet and other regions in north-east India where Buddhist philosophy is still alive in ordinary life.
An avid theosophist, Viveckâ€™s journeys to such areas has helped him develop a better understanding of ancient Kangyur texts, rendering him deeply influenced by Buddhist culture and theology. His current work, a fable, is a culmination of all that he has seen, learnt, and encountered thus far.
