A Spiritual Journey Toward Self-Discovery

The Pilgrimage recounts the spectacular trials of Paulo Coelho as he journeys across Spain to discover personal power, wisdom, and a miraculous sword that seals his initiation intothe secret society of the Tradition. With his enigmatic mentor, Petrus, he follows a legendary road traveled by pilgrims of San Tiago since the Middle Ages, encountering a Chaucerian variety of mysterious guides and devilish opponents. Coelho's experiences and his mentor's teachings impart the spiritual wisdom that reveals itself as the true purpose of their exciting journey. Part adventure story, part guide to self-mastery, this compelling tale delivers a powerful brew of magic and insight.

sejalkanoi, May 8, 2006 (view all comments by sejalkanoi)
this book, i funnily read after finishing zahir, it traces the mans journey in search of the sword, forgetting what he actualli started the journey for ?
his wife again just a silent spectator, as she is amused by her husbands obsession to become all knowledge, forgetting real power is so simple: love!
the book though well written, tends to drag a little and gets a little boring, but still i enjoyed the book. read it twice, and then read zahir again.

ps: the end of a journey is not always a reward. can just be the journey itself, just the ups and downs of the experience.
