Description

"Baronas imagines a world steeped in great spiritual power in this debut novel. Jude Ryder is an aspiring filmmaker turned drug dealer - as well as a deep James Dean aficionado - who finds himself in 1970s India searching for a larger spiritual truth. Jude encounters a couple of ascetics who promise to take him to meet Shiva . . . The yogis turn out to be real deal . . . and Jude sets off on a quest that will take him to the edges of reality and truth. He learns the concept of true war, wherein the soul must free itself of entrapments, and of the brahmastra, a spiritual nuclear bomb that can wreak havoc on the foes of the fighter who possesses it. His training will take him across the world, from Haridwar to his native Los Angeles, where a power rises that threatens to destabilize the balance of the universe. Navigating through a secret world of cults, spirits, loves and betrayals, Jude embarks on a journey to become a true mystical warrior and defeat the ultimate enemy: that which resides inside himself. . . . The application of Hindu spiritualism to a Western-style urban fantasy novel is intriguing, and Baronas displays ambition in the range of concepts he attempts to address . . . A high-concept . . . fantasy tale inspired by Hindu teachings."- Kirkus Reviewsshow more

About Remi Peter Baronas

Just who is this Remi Peter Baronas who writes about arcane oriental magic, the beyond-death realm, immortality, goddess and gods, heaven and hell, miracles and mystical warfare? I was born to a family of Baltic refugees in the Austrian Alps but it really all began when I was a kid thinking to myself, "what if I had never been born?" Fast-forward a decade and I was a student at the University of Madrid then went to London/Paris to study filmmaking. Then the most important turning point in my life happened. Having already started to dabble in mystical arts in London and picking up rampart rumors of mystical riches lurking in India, I traveled overland to India. Four extended sojourns in India totaling six years put me through the wringer of a variety of oriental muses and initiations in various traditions and after writing my first book, I returned to Canada, then moved to Colombia to marry and start a family and a business and returned to Canada with my family. All the while writing. My writings started out as a discipline of organizing my ideas because I always believed that unless you can put it in writing, you don't have a proper grasp of the material. So in India, I wrote as I picked the minds of several "great ones" (see my blog for the meaning of "great ones") and came to some interesting conclusions. That though on the surface, most spirituality/mysticism/religion is a con game designed to entrap people in a lust for power and greed for money by keeping their followers in ignorance, in the ultimate analysis "truth cannot be change into falsehood" and true spirituality does exist. I am now proposing not only that it is available for anyone to experience, but is also amenable to intellectual understanding. The demystification of the arcane labyrinth of mysticism is a running theme throughout my current and in-progress novels, but my main objective is to strip the manipulative religious justifications of 'false war' - waged in blood and guts - and show that their original intention was the waging of 'true war' - fought against the darkest enemies of the soul.show more
