“I won’t even try to describe this wonderfully inspiring book. My words are by no means enough. I not only enjoyed diving into a different world but was amazed by the wisdom. I’m looking forward to going through it again and again – I feel there is ever more to discover. Eine inspirirende Antwort auf die Frage nach dem Sinn des Lebens – Danke!”
“Thank you for awakening the ‘Magi cian’ inside me and giving her a reason to dance once again despite the ‘rigorous Master’! Thank you for the thoughtful journey! Благодаря ти за мъдростта с която ме дари!”
“Whenever we walk into a bookstore, we see hundreds of books. Some we read and forget. But some we carry with us for the rest of our lives. ‘Fable of Existence’ is one I will always carry with me, because it has not let my imagination and emotions go after I put it down. It has not let me go to this day. Povestea din spatele povestii.”
