Warrior of Light: A Manual by Paulo Coelho

Warrior of Light: A Manual by Paulo Coelho, is an inspirational companion and to rise to our own unique destiny In his inimitable style, Paulo Coelho helps bring out the Warrior of the Light within each of us. This is series of aphorisms and platitudes.

Author begins with very short story as prologue about a boy meets a beautiful woman at a beach, who proceeds to tell him about a hidden undersea temple. she tells him that he can hear the temple bells ringing. after many months when his hopes for hearing the undersea temple bells were vanishing, he starts hearing the sound.

Years later he returns to beach to meet same woman. this time she gave a book to write about 'The Warrior of Light'.. Book begins with his questions - who is warrior of Lights..
a warrior is someone capable of understanding miracle of life, of fighting to the last for something he believes in- and of hearing the bells that waves sets ringing on the seabed. Everyone is capable of these things. And, though no one thinks of themselves as a warrior of light, we all are.
With the exception of the prologue and the epilogue, the passages in the book were first published in column titled ’Maktub’ appeared in brazilian newspaper. This book is much awaited english translation for those columns.
