Summary Откровенные рассказы странника духовному своему отцу ´ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ??s travels and spiritual inuiries Eye opening and extraordinary The Way of a Pilgrim offers a one of a kind portrait of the traditions and interior life of Russian Orthodox spirituality and practi. Of course I first came across this book in Franny and Zooey I later found it at a place called Urban Ore I love how virtuosic the pilgrim is with his humility how open he is to learning secrets from everyone he meets along the road and how clearly he describes attaining unceasing internal prayer as an experiment of the imagination to picture your heart beating in your chest and to slowly travel inwards with your creative intellect until you reach it to sit silently in the spaces between heartbeats and then feel the love baby He also did a good job of reminding me how to stay faithful to teachers who have passed through the portal of dreams and sometimes make us feel abandoned and alone That s when a book can come to the rescue I felt like whenever I put this book down I could not help but breathe deep and clear and walk along the sunny side of reality a balm against those cut off suffocating parts of my judgemental mindThe Pilgrim Continues His Way wasn t as good in my opinion

Summary Откровенные рассказы странника духовному своему отцу ´ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF An essential addition to the HarperCollins Spiritual Classics series The Way of a Pilgrim is combined in one volume with its companion work The Pilgrim Continues His Way Translated from the origina. I m fairly sure that I stumbled upon this while studying Dostoevsky for my final year dissertation at universityThe first text The Way of a Pilgrim has a timeless feel The pilgrim wanders across Russia from one place of pilgrimage to another The pilgrim holds to the practise of continual prayer first praying Christ have mercy on me building up to Christ have mercy upon me a sinner and finally reaching Lord Jesus Christ have mercy upon me a sinner The pilgrim walks The words of the prayer fall in place to the pattern of the pilgrim s heartbeat The praying is continuous The non believer suspects that the altered breathing pattern has an effect on the brain It s a solid spiritual text The author was unknown and I don t recall any details that hinted at the time or place of composition There are no details or even hints about the pilgrim s life before pilgrimage and continuous prayer But for the development of the prayer the pilgrim s way could be eternal or at least the continuous work of a life of pilgrimageThe seuel The Pilgrim Continues His Way is entirely different and unintentionally funny It is firmly placed in the late nineteenth century An odd group of characters including a university professor meet and discuss their religious experiences which freuently seem to include the devil appearing to personally tempt them as in Ivan s fevered vision in The Brothers Karamazov but without Dostoevsky s literary gravitas All of these characters are of higher social status possibly to add social authority to their conversion stories or then again it could be a wish fulfilment fantasy on the part of the anonymous author of the social elite sharing the spiritual outlook of people for whom the appearance of the Devil in everyday life was a believable phenomena It s hard to imagine anybody but a hardened believer finding these stories remotely plausible unless they were also fond of adding too much vodka to their afternoon beer As spiritual reading I could only recommend the first part I m sure it has an appeal to non Orthodox Christians as well and indeed non Christians too as it is an account of spiritual practise not a statement of revelation or theology As a whole both books could be useful for a reader looking for some insight in to pre Revolutionary Russian religious thinking for ordinary believers This is part of the spiritual outlook of the minor characters of dozens of Russian and early Soviet novels

Summary Откровенные рассказы странника духовному своему отцу ´ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF L Russian by Reginald M French and with an introduction by Huston Smith author of The World’s Religions The Way of a Pilgrim is the chronicle of an anonymous nineteenth century Russian Christian?. The manuscript for this wonderful little book was found in the hands of a monk by the Abbot of St Michael s Monastery at Kazan in Russia Since then this book has been contributed to two writers The first author is believed to have been Archimandrite Mikhail Kozlov who lived between 1826 and 1884 He converted to the Orthodox religion and then became a missionary The second writer is believed to be Arsenii Troepolskii who was born in 1809 and lived until 1870 Like the pilgrim he traveled between monasteries The first manuscript is thought to be written by Kozlov and then it was rewritten by Troepolskii How they came to believe this I do not know but what is important about the book is its message and the life of this sweet pilgrimThis book first came to be published in 1884 in Russia and in the US it was first published in 1930 It fell into my own hands in the late 1990s when I was in a yoga religion as this was a book that was prized but not practiced by them They didn t use the Jesus Prayer in this book instead they had their own mantra The results are the same The first chapter of this book begins By the grace of God I am a Christian man by my actions a great sinner and by calling a homeless wanderer of the humblest birth who roams from place to place My worldly goods are a knapsack with some dried bread in it on my back and in my breast pocked a Bible and that is allWhen in church one day the little pilgrim heard a scripture from the Bible that said to pray without ceasing He began to wonder how one could do this and so began asking uestions at different churches No one could give him what he felt was the right answer so he began traveling around the country to different monasteries After one year or he was walking down a road and an old man who looked like a cleric overtook him They began talking and he ended up at his monastery where he was taught the interior Jesus prayer Lord Jesus have mercy on me This prayer was to be repeated all day long to oneself but at first you had to begin slowly increasing the number of times you repeated this prayer He began with 2000 times a day until this silent prayer became a part of him completely The pilgrim decides to stay and learn from this cleric so he finds a house in exchange for gardening and stays the summer Near the end of the summer his teacher dies and his job has ended He moves on teaching others along the wayHe says this about the results of his praying without ceasing I have become a sort of half conscious person I have no cares and no interests The fussy business of the world I would not give a glance to The one thing I wish for is to be alone and all by myself to pray to pray without ceasing and doing this I am filled with joy And he also said If I happened to meet anyone all men without exception were as dear to me as if they had been my nearest relations But I did not concern myself with them much Later on in his travels he meets a priest who tells him Why do you want to be alone Common prayer is pleasanter God did not create man to think of himself only but that men should help each other and lead each other along the path to salvation The pilgrim not listening to his advice goes on his wayAs I moved from Hinduism to Buddhism I asked my Buddhist teacher why it was that those who meditated did not socialize I learned from him that meditation does indeed cause one to withdraw from the world It never affected me in that way Anyway this Buddhist teacher tried to prevent this lack of socializing in the monks by sending them out into the public such as to the grocery store I do not believe really works When my husband and I moved to another part of the country there were no Buddhist or Hindu groups I continued to find meditation to be peaceful but then I let it go One day I sat and contemplated on what I really believed and it was this All that is necessary in life is caring for all life which includes the earth Nothing else is needed
