The Monk of Lantau

The Monk of Lantau

The wisdom of enlightenment is inherent in every one of us. It is because of the delusion under which our mind works that we fail to realise it ourselves, and that we have to seek the advice and the guidance of enlightened ones.

Book Synopsis

The search for a meaningful existence is as universal as it is elusive. When obstacles to happiness and personal goals seem to riddle our horizons, where do we turn for answers?

Meet Matthew, an average Londoner, a family man, intent on the all-too-normal pursuit of making a better life for himself and his family. When an accident threatens to become the proverbial straw that breaks his back, Matthew finds himself at a crossroad in his life.

In the way the universe has of placing the right people in our lives at just the right time, Matthew happens upon a tale from an unlikely source, a tale of a man with mystical healing powers, someone Matthew can seek who can restore balance and harmony to his life and heal his daughter, who is fighting for her own. As he traipses through Europe, the Middle East, India, and Asia in search of the healer, nothing about the beautiful, trying, and challenging outward journey compares to the progress he makes as he travels into the depths of his own being.

Through Matthew’s journey, we are given the keys to finding the healer for ourselves. Most importantly, readers are invited to harness the beauty and prosperity that comes when we seek ways to recognize that we are all connected to each other and we are all marvellous and powerful creators of our own unique, stunning life stories.

Reader Reviews

5 Star Reviews for The Monk of LantauA great metaphor for life
“Enlightening, cathartic and inspirational. An excellent metaphor for life, which is just
a journey to reconnect to what is important. Love the different perspectives, will
teach me not to be so judgemental, everyone has their own path to take, we can only live
our own and walk beside others on theirs. An excellent book”.

5 Star Reviews for The Monk of LantauA truly inspirational read
I’m so pleased I bought this book. I was intrigued by the title and decided to purchase it.
I have to say I’m so impressed and the book far exceeded any expectations. I would go
as far as to say it should be compared to the likes of ‘The Alchemist’. Looking forward
to Mann Matharu’s next offering”.

Mann Matharu is right, everyone does has a journey. The characters in the story can easily
be you or I and how their stories interlink is absolutely brilliant. A must read for anyone
looking for a quick uplifting read”.
