The Seeker by Karan Bajaj ~ Book Review

Book Description: 

Can a man walk on water? Can he see the future? Can he read people’s minds? One man will find answers that challenge all his rational beliefs. After a deep personal loss, Maximus Pzoras, Harvard economist and Wall Street banker, sets out on a quest to find the cause of human pain and suffering. His journey takes him from New York to a hidden ashram in south India to a drought-stricken village to a freezing cave high in the Himalayas. And as he goes from cubicle dweller to cave dwelling yogi, he starts to develop extraordinary powers. But will Max, investment banker turned Himalayan sage, find the answers to the questions that led him to India? The Seeker is both a gripping adventure and a story of a man’s tremendous inner transformation, a Siddhartha for our generation.

This was an amazing book, very lovable characters with a great story of a young man who has strived to become what he felt was is life needs. Only when he meets a food cart owner from India that he realizes there is more to his life than Wall Street and money. Max sets out on an amazing journey of self discovery, to become a great yogi. I was totally drawn to this book right from reading the synopsis. I couldn't wait to read it! Karan did an amazing job of hooking me into the story right from the beginning and taking me on a wonderful journey along with Max and some very dynamic characters that you can't help wondering what my own calling is. I have started my own journey into looking inside me and realize there is so much to learn in a yoga practice. Meditation is an amazing thing. Max overcomes what most people would never even experience in ones life. After reading The Seeker is has me looking at everything we take for granted on a daily basis, also what I can do without and why do I hold onto somethings.

I can't wait to read more from Karan Bajaj as he is an amazing writer. I give The Seeker a 5 out of 5 stars and highly recommend this book to everyone not just people interested in meditation and yoga.
