The Call of the Sun - Surya Green
Finally finished this book. although it started out to be really enjoyable, I found it to really drag towards the end. The first part which is set in India, I found really enjoyable. The rest which is mostly set in Amsterdam, I found just did not grab me.
"The Transformation takes place for the most part in old Amsterdam, where the writer turns her canal side flat into her personal temple to the Divine, much to the skepticism of her friends, acquaintances and journalistic colleagues. But step by step reborn Surya Green goes through a conscious transition "from secular to spiritual", with all the pleasures and the pains thereof. As if by greater design, there appears in her life the Himalayan spiritual Sun-master Sri Swami Purna. Not coincidentally, Sri Swami Purna comes from the Surya-vansa, the solar race of India. Under his unique guidance there begins for Surya a process of spiritual training during which the meanings of soul, karma, reincarnation and Divine Plan become clear to her"
I'm afraid a lot of this book was not clear to me, it deals in part with Sufi Mysticism, and this has never been really clear, or of interest to me.
However, the book was quite well written, but it will not be one that I will be keeping.
