Kernaussage 1 von 8

While working as a wealthy, high-power lawyer, Julian Mantle had a spiritual awakening.

This is the fictitious tale of Julian Mantle, a man who, seemingly, had it all. A graduate of the famous Harvard Law School, Mantle was one of the most well-known trial lawyers in the United States. He was making seven-figures; he lived in a mansion; a red Ferrari was parked outside. He was living the dream.

However, underneath it all, he was struggling. His workload was far too heavy for him to handle. Each day there was a new, important case for Mantle to take on and he approached every proceeding diligently. Eventually, the stress became too much for him, and one day Mantle suffered a severe heart attack and collapsed in the courtroom.

After that incident, he never returned to practicing law.

In fact, no one at his firm heard from him after his heart attack. Rumor had it that he’d moved to India in search of some answers and a simpler life – and, indeed, that’s exactly what he had done. Before moving, Mantle sold his mansion and his Ferrari; he was sure that his quest for meaning was more important.

And then, three years later, he returned, showing up without warning at his former colleague’s office. He was the picture of health, with a Buddha-like smile stretched across his face.

Mantle had been traveling from village to village in India by foot. On his journey, he had learned about yogis who seemed to defy aging. In Kashmir, he had heard about the Great Sages of Sivana. And these new discoveries inspired him to venture to the Himalayan Mountains, where he came across the monks that lived there.

It was there that Mantle had a reawakening and finally found his soul.
