9781438941899: THE EPIC OF ARYA: In Search of the Sacred Light


"I am searching for the Light... not the light made by man, but the Light that made man."

"Know that it was but one god who died on the cross, and many are waiting to be born."

THE EPIC OF ARYA is about man's eternal quest for the divine. It depicts man's perennial inner struggle between light and darkness, and teaches him to re-conquer his lost divinity by unveiling the "god within", the Inner Light. Overcoming the "death of God" declared by Nietzsche, THE EPIC OF ARYA speaks about the redemption of the divine and its rebirth in man. To redeem God in men: that is Arya's sacred mission.

Half-woman, half-goddess, Arya is torn between Love and Truth, between passion and duty. Confused, she wonders: should she accept her human plight, or fulfil her divine destiny? A fundamental question ever haunts her: is Love human or divine? In that fateful question lies the future of humanity, for in each man, the divine flame slumbers, waiting to be kindled by the Light of Awakening. Rising above her fears, and breaking her idols, Arya, awakened and liberated, preaches the Eternal Religion which is above men's fleeting religions, narrow identities, and imperfect creeds, heralding a new, higher consciousness beyond the frontiers erected within man and between men.

An inner journey of self-discovery, this inspirational, allegorical novel is the spiritual bible: it heals, awakens, transforms. Arya's epic conveys a universal message of unity, hope, and salvation in a world torn apart by the clash of civilisations and religions, offering a spiritual alternative to the two scourges plaguing mankind today: the scourge of religious fundamentalism - God idolatry - and the scourge of atheist materialism - God denial -, for only a spiritual awakening can save man from his own blind folly.

About the Author:

Versed in philosophy and spirituality, Abir Taha has a particular interest in Nietzschean thought, theosophy, Western and Eastern esotericism and mysticism. Thinker, poet, diplomat, holder of a postgraduate degree in Philosophy from the Sorbonne University in Paris, the author espouses a pantheistic, holistic vision of the world based on the eternal principles of the Naturreligion, the Religion of Nature which views God as immanent in nature and in man. Taha believes that the fulfilment of the Divine is life's ultimate purpose and man's highest vocation. This vision, which finds its full expression in the present work, also transpires in the author's previous book, LE DIEU À VENIR DE NIETZSCHE, OU LA RÉDEMPTION DU DIVIN ("Nietzsche's Coming God, or the Redemption of the Divine") (Paris : Éditions Connaissances et Savoirs, 2005), which explores the spiritual dimension of Nietzsche's philosophy, as opposed to the atheistic interpretations of the German philosopher's thought.
This spiritual Weltanschauung, or worldview, equally transpires in Taha's book on Nietzsche and Nazism: NIETZSCHE, PROPHET OF NAZISM: THE CULT OF THE SUPERMAN - Unveiling the Nazi Secret Doctrine (Bloomington, Indiana: AuthorHouse, 2005). (Portuguese language rights: Madras Editora, Sao Paolo, Brazil). In this book, the author unveils the esoteric nature of the Nazi ideology, which, she argues, was greatly influenced by Nietzsche's "spiritual Aryan paganism."

Abir Taha is also the author of several other books in English, including Twelve Resolutions for a Happy Life (Australia, 2015), Verses of Light (London, 2014), and Defining Terrorism: the End of Double Standards (London, 2014).
