Profile Information


Like any other person in these times, of a scientific temperament and armed with a modern education, Fakeer Ishavardas was certain about his molecular structure - having come from nothing, going unto nothingness. In a nutshell, an almighty, all-knowing atheist. It was around this time, in 1988, that Stephen Hawking made known his perennial theoretical concept of what life is all about, in a simple take on everything that be, outing it in 'A Brief History of Time'. Before he could read it, Fakeer Ishavardas, by a quirk of karma, was led into a quixotic quest unto the occult.  From 1990-94, this maverick sojourn unto the realm of the paranormal metamorphosed into a testing metaphysical journey; culminating in the epochal Self-Realization of That Which Is. With his updated scientific knowledge gone for a toss, the author, unable to function efficaciously in a metropolitan life of Delhi and Mumbai, like a prodigal son who could never have imagined coming back to his small hometown in Punjab; did so. From there he had definite plans to go unto the Himalayas; intending to live a monk's life, dying thus. Like everyone else, with his tale unto the tail, dust unto dust. Well, that clearly did not happen. For, post gnosis of What Is, one is en naturelle: in a state of natural statelessness. Now, the author lives as magnificently mundane a life as every other being, but in rapture, in an immanent state of Grace: of What Is. As a free mystic, of sorts.  Fakeer Ishavardas never did get down to reading 'A Brief History of Time'. It would have been too mundane. Heard a bit too many times, over time. Like an old wives' tale.
