The blurb of the book

A series of events catapults Kapil into the fascinating world of Dark Arts and suck him into the quagmire of drama, suspense, greed and betrayal. And just when the trials and tribulations seem to engulf Kapil completely, there emerged from the deepest darkness, a Brilliant Light of his True Master.

Reminiscences of A Seeker tells the true story of an ordinary man plunged into extraordinary circumstances of the Dark World. 

Kapil takes you on his unforgettable true journey of the supernatural world of mystics and higher beings, unbelievable miracles and the parallel world of darkness and light, in his spiritual pursuit of seeking the ONE – who would show him the Ultimate Divine.

About the author

Kapil Kumar Bhaskar has been on his spiritual journey for more than two decades. Blessed by Adi Gurus, Spiritual Guides and Masters (who visited him out of their body form), Kapil has a deep understanding of the human psyche and has divine clarity on both esoteric and non-esoteric issues. Having received divine guidance, his knowledge and understanding of spiritual matters goes beyond books and comes from anubhuti... experience. 
In his own words, the experiences he underwent in this sojourn shaped him to become what he is today. His knowledge does not come from books but from experiences. 

As he often says, “You have not got birth here, neither you will get death... The only thing you will get here is Experience...”

After a successful stint as a businessman, Kapil Kumar Bhaskar gradually shifted his area of work to become a full-time spiritual consultant to those lost and confused on their personal path of inner excellence. A multi-faceted personality, Kapil is a spiritual mentor, a prolific writer, a counsellor par excellence. He has penned uplifting articles which have been printed in magazines and journals within and outside the country.

Highly articulate, he debunks myths and conditioned beliefs and theories propounded by self-proclaimed guardians of orthodoxy, to help people connect with their true self. He has guided and helped countless people. His radical interpretations of spiritual and religious dogmas existing amongst the masses have transformed the lives of all those who have chosen to associate themselves with him.
His lifelong experiences have now been shaped in book form which gives in-depth information and knowledge of the dark side of the white world.
A Mentor with a difference, Kapil continues his spiritual quest which he says will last till this life... and maybe beyond.

General :

Miracles happen.It is possible to   Gurus of Hinduism  ,who perform them after achieving lots of mental  powers  by reciting mantra several times  and worshiping Gods. They practice celibacy and mind control   ,make so many sacrifices and learn a lot.They are famous, rich and powerful . People throng for their blessings and seek their guidelines for solving their problems .

Reminiscences of a Seeker dark face of the White World (True Story)  is the first book I have got on the Dark Arts . Usually I get books on romance,fantasy and others. This book is an exceptional one. With  curiosity I have flipped through  the book . I like the book for all the raw truths and  poignant secrets it tells about the realm of Spiritual Masters.

Mysteries and surprises, spine chilling engulf me  when I   read the book.There is a lot of horrible twists and terrific turns beyond my imagination and knowledge.The book is a detailed account of the Author talks about his experience with his Masters i.e  sages , Spritual Leaders  clairvoyants ,experts in Tantric skills and ascetic sadhus called Aghoris

The book chronicles the personal experiences of the author with the paranormal world . This book takes you to the mysterious planes telling about the spiritual pursuits of the author for
Spiritual knowledge and ancient techniques The book talks about religious ascetics  who are holy persons  in Hinduism  and excel in  art  of sorcery using magic or supernatural powers and  esoteric tantra.

The Plot :

The story starts with the author telling about his search for a Guru to guide him in spiritual matters . He meets in dreams several Masters Like Shridi Sai Baba, Hazrat Khwaja Moinuddin Hasan Chisti   He gets the guidance of SWAMI RAMANAND SARASWATI  .His search for Ultimate Divine leads him to a Tantric Guru  who  becomes his Master. His name is Maharaj Trilokenath..He begins to be his disciple to learn  all about siddhi and other rituluals .  The Master tells about the necessary of practicing them on certain astrological dates . He has attained perfect Sadhana .

The author goes on to explain about his encounters with the Master and he encounters many ordeals. . His Master teaches him about capturing ghosts. He stresses the importance of Bhoot Siddhi one of the most basic powerful siddhi . He practices in the cremation ground in the midnight.In this journey he gains control over paranormal occurrences.  He takes many tours visiting holy places with Tantric Master .  In course of time he becomes so famous and the most sought after Disciple   the Master  is jealous of him .
What is the reaction of the Master?
How the reader comes to know about the Master's evil mind?
What is the decision he takes to protect himself  ?
How  does he choose an Aghori as his second Master?
For answer to all these questions  we have to read the book.

The Pro :

I like the title as it gives what the book  talks about. I also  like the cover  as it denotes the light of moon in the dark sky . There are 9 Chapters with captions all related to the Spiritual world .  To cite  examples I can quote the following
1. Divine desire fulfilled
2 My journey to My Guru's abode.
3. My Heart Opens to True Living Masters.

The book covers all facets of the Spiritual World. It includes the  relationship between Master and Disciple, jealousy and betrayal of Masters   , blind trust of disciples, Hero worship by innocent and ignorant people, the rituals unheard of in the real world,  mysterious feats of the  Masters , the interaction with ghosts and sprits , capturing souls to manipulate for their wrong ends .

He Performs rituals and reciting mantra in the cremation ground   at the midnight and the only companion is darkness. He excels in capturing souls and talking with ghosts . He has given all these details  in a nice manner.

Kapil Kumar Bhaskar the Author has penned this book in a simple language to be understood by any layman albeit the core subject of the book being the Spiritual journey  and the events are fresh and new to all.

He has depicted all the happenings in a chronological order with the highest degree of coherence  so that we get a first hand information   .The narrative prose is gripping .
Glossary of Terms used is useful .

In the ending , not only the Author gets enlightenment but also it is a good message to all of us.

My favorite :

The episode involving Maya, daughter of Asurnath  the second Master of the Author ,has melted my heart.  She is so thoughtful enough to caution the Author . Asurnath is so greedy and evil minded he arranges "elimination "of Maya.How reckless and mean are these Self made Masters who lack humility and compassion and possess all the powers to attract people. There are so many black sheep to bring bad name to genuine persons.

Also I like the following words of wisdom
All knowledge and powers rather everything is given by him to all of us ,but these are not to be displayed (show off ) or misused , rather be used for the well being of ourselves and others.We should always be thankful to Him for His kindness. We are all children of one God and the only thing which separates us is our  ego. Ego is like a mad elephant which is ridden by our blind heart and blind mind and which ultimately destroys our real selves.

Anger , harsh words and criticism damage your aura , your energy field causes holes to appear in your energy field and leaves you vulnerable .

Tantra is all about manipulating energies and laws , to manifest things at physical or spiritual reality which are not manifesting naturally or through karma.

Most of the time our inner voice tries to guide us to the 'Truth'but we , out of  our own vested interests , wish to continue living in our own self-centered illusions because it suits our purpose or fulfills our needs 

As Lord Krishna who said one who outwardly  controls external senses and still mentally dwells upon the objects of senses is said to be hypocritical 

My verdict :

Kapil Kumar Bhaskar has written the book with a passion . In many places he tells the truth about the activities of Masters and it serves as a good message to all not to believe all they tell . He makes the book as a perfect guide for all seekers with the use of incidents taken place in his life. He has told the story in an authoritative and authenticated way  as his rich knowledge and wide experience have  helped him in this aspect.

His inexhaustible  zeal in the spiritual matters  gives the readers all the interest to read the book. For all it may not be a good read but those who are seekers of Supreme Master i.e God  definitely  give an awesome  read.

My score : 5/5

Disclaimer: I have received the book from the Author in exchange of my honest and unbiased review
