HIPPIE by Paulo Coelho

Updated: Sep 6, 2020


When I started to take reading as a passion,Alchemist was the book that made me understand how reading can help in developing a person's perception towards life.That made me a fan of Paolo Coelho and went on reading his books,till I found myself overwhelmed by his ideaology of life.After that when ever I try to take the new book 'Hippie' from the book stall,my mind rejected that idea straight away telling , hey man, this will be the same that you had already read. But finally after a long time struggle brain rejected minds idea..and I took a dive into this book and was an amazing experience.

As his usual works, this book also engages the reader to complete it on a single shot.The writer is successful in taking the reader along with him to undergo the same journey. In Hippie, he tells the story of Paulo, a young man who wants to become a writer and sets off on a journey in search of the most inner meaning of life.He is travelling to Amsterdam,where he is meets Karla, a Dutch woman who was waiting for a ideal companion for her travel to Nepal.As they travel together , Paulo and Karla enjoys their relationship and the same is growing to a divine level that Paulo and Karla believed to exist till the world remains even if they are in un recognisable alignments in the future.

Whenever the author is describing the places of visit , he is able to create a dream for the reader to go for a journey to that place.It is quite sure that the, Dam square in Amsterdam, Istambul, Nepal and the places that the Magic bus has taken will be hunting my mind to make a visit.The book tells the stories of various experiences Paulo is having from his places of visit and the stories of the fellow travelers in the Magic Bus. As the earlier books of the author behaves, this book is also giving various insights towards the life in each chapters. 

The theme of the book can be summarised in my language as follows: One can understand and fulfil the meaning of his life by being on his own karma of life, by being in a life which his mind creates, we can create a life of joy and peace. There is no need to remain as monks by receiving from all our livelihoods to be in touch with the supreme power.The most important lines that touched my heart from this book is this poem 


" God give you...

 For every storm, a rainbow

For every tear, a smile, 

For every care, a promise,

And a blessing in each trial. 

For every problem life sends,

A faithful friend to share,

For every sigh, a sweet song,

And an answer for each prayer"

I will suggest this book to the young who is waiting to follow an enlightenment in their life and those who want to lead a life  in concurrence with the supreme power.
