The concept of inner development has always attracted me. Since my early childhood I have wanted to plunge into the mystery of our existence, to look behind so to say an unseen curtain which limits our perception. The majority of people do t believe that there is mystery behind the visible world. Therefore I could discuss these matters and my experiences with just a few friends who just like me had more questions than answers. I once met a person who pointed out to me a very unusual spiritual Path to which my heart felt irresistibly attracted. However it took me a year to put aside my old views and intentions and leave behind my old life and follow him on his continuous journey. The adventures and new experiences and the growth of my being were necessary in order to accept an incomprehensible teaching that this man has been carrying in his heart. The best definition of this teaching could be in my opinion Russian Christian Hermeticism', and its main practice was spiritual alchemy. However it did t seem to me appropriate to write ather condensed and incomprehensible alchemical treaty and I just described it all as it happened.
The writer and mystic Konstantin Serebrov was born in 1951 in the Northern Caucasus. From a young age he took a keen interest in Hindu mysticism and the concept of enlightenment and cosmic consciousness. In the Caucasus he studied the works of Hindu gurus and practised various techniques to develop consciousness. When in his thirties, Serebrov became interested in the traditions of Western and Eastern alchemy and studied and practised the alchemical doctrines for many years. Serebrov presents the results of years of investigation, in the form of several novels. In the books Serebrov creates a series of collective characters, using all the mystics known to him as prototypes, and installs in these characters all the knowledge he discovered through the diligent study of mystical treaties, and also through his meditations. These books were published in Russia as well in the West, and enjoy the interest of those seeking spirituality.
