I am someone who at age 10 got a gift from my mother in the audio version of this book (which I didn't even know was a book until I was 30). I listened to it so many times, the words, in Richard Harris voice now live inside me permanently, as my own personal guide along the spiritual path.
I read this originally on the Internet and I'm glad they turned it into a book. His descriptions of Gibran's work are shown from the inside of a mind which is more alike to Almustafa himself than to the mind of anyone who reads it. With this, he can show and expand upon the work in a way that no other commenter could otherwise do.
Having spent many years in an ashram, and in meditation; and being a "seeker of silences" in the same way as the main character, the authenticity of the comments here are astounding. Authentic spiritual experience is almost untranslatable and Gibran, the poet, has had a window into the very nature of all of us and come away with some words to describe it, against all the odds and against the principle that such a vast internal world is nearly impossible to speak about properly without losing something in translation.
It is SO difficult, that a further expansion of the words of Gibran is warranted. Osho provides this here. Although the original book is in English, the concepts shown are so deep and rich AND foreign to the mind of most people that a further translation is very worthwhile. Just incredible.
