Maktub : an inspirational companion to The Alchemist  Cover Image Book Book

Maktub : an inspirational companion to The Alchemist / Paulo Coelho ; translated from the Portuguese by Margaret Jull Costa.

Coelho, Paulo, (author.). Costa, Margaret Jull, (translator.).


"Each story offers an illuminated path to see life and the lives of our fellow people around the world in new ways, allowing us to tap into universal truths about our collective and individual humanity. As Coelho writes, 'a man who seeks only the light, while shirking his responsibilities, will never find illumination. And one who keep his eyes fixed upon the sun . . . ends up blind.' These wise tales offer the perspective of talking snakes, old women climbing mountains, disciples querying their masters, Buddha in dialogue, mysterious hermits, and many saints addressing the mysteries of the universe." -- publisher's website
