Publisher's Summary

He appears out of nowhere in a sleepy little neighbourhood in suburban Kerala. He calls himself Shunya, the zero. Who is he? A lunatic? A dark magician? A fraud? Or an avadhuta, an enlightened soul?  

Saami, as they call him, settles into a small cottage in the backyard of the local toddy shop. Here he spins parables, blesses, curses, drinks endless glasses of black tea and lives in total freedom. On rare occasions, he plays soul-stirring melodies on his old bamboo-reed flute.  

Then, just as mysteriously as he arrived, Shunya vanishes, setting the path for a new avadhuta, a new era.  

This first novel by Sri M is a meditation on the void which collapses the wall between reality and make-believe, the limited and the infinite. With its spare storytelling and profound wisdom, it leads us into the realm of ‘shunya’, the nothingness of profound and lasting peace, the beginning and end of all things.

Avadhootha’s life is a fiction

It’s easy to explain miracles in a fiction. These I am sure are experienced daily in lives of Avadhootha’s. SriM tried to break all social norms, rituals etc and showed how life can be simpler. A must read for anyone who want to understand what lies beyond life and death and can either believe it or not believe it.

Deja Vu!

A wonderful book. Many parts remind one of stories of various saints, especially from the life of the author.
