Ry in the Russian Orthodox tradition I came to the book by way of the late JD Salinger s Franny and Zooey Franny and Zooey which I also had the opportunity to read of late For those readers unfamiliar with it Salinger s book consists of two interrelated short stories which center on two precocious young people Franny Glass 20 and her brother Zooey Glass 25 Franny is spending a college football weekend with her boyfriend Lane The weekend comes to disaster because Franny is preoccupied with reading The Way of a Pilgrim She discusses the book with Lane who is uninterested In the second story Franny is at home in New York City after the weekend and appears on the verge of nervous collapse Her brother Zooey ngages her in a pair of conversations which center upon Franny s reading of The Way of the Pilgrim Zooey tries to get his sister and himself to understand the book He also tries to get Franny to move ahead with her life rather than to self destructI was fascinated by Salinger s treatment of and obvious affection for The Way of a Pilgrim and read it immediately upon finishing Franny and Zooey The book that came to hand was an The Day Christ Was Born edition published in 1996 translated by Olga Savin with an Forework by the famous American Russian Orthodox priest Father Thomas Hopko There is a latterdition of The Way of a Pilgrim which also includes the successor volume A Pilgrim Continues on his Way translated by Savin The Way of a Pilgrim and A Pilgrim Continues on His Way Shambhala Classics that remains in print I did not read that ditionProbably most secular American readers come to The Way of a Pilgrim from reading Salinger It is very valuable to study the book from the outside so to speak as with other religious books It is also important to remember as Father Hopko reminds the reader that the book is also part of a specific religious heritageThe Way of a Pilgrim is a short book specific religious heritageThe Way of a Pilgrim is a short book in four brief chapters called Narratives It is told in the first person by a wanderer through Russia of peasant background and with a withered arm The reader learns something of his history only gradually mostly in the Third Narrative of the book At the age of 20 after the death of his wife the narrator is attending a church service where he hears the reading of Thessalonians with the text Pray without ceasing 1 Thess 517 He begins to wander in search of someone who can xplain prayer to him After some false leads the narrator meets an The Seventh Witch elderly monk a starets who shows him how to recite the Jesus Prayer Lord Jesus Christ have mercy on me and gives him some instruction to deepen his understanding The starets also advises the pilgrim to study anarly collection called the Philokalia which consists of mystical and ascetical writing of arly Fathers of the Eastern Orthodox ChurchThe nameless pilgrim wanders throughout Russia reciting the Jesus Prayer reading the Philokalia and internalizing his spiritual understanding He begins his wanderings at age 20 and recounts his story to his Spritual Father at age 33 while *he is trying to secure passage to jerusalem *is trying to secure passage to Jerusalem tells the reader of his deepening understanding of the Jesus prayer during his wandering mendicant lifeMost people love stories and The Way of a Pilgrim includes many The wanderer meets many people during his journey and makes stops along the way to perform work for brief times that he can do consistently with maintaining his spiritual practice He meets people good and bad criminals who try to rob him a young girl fleeing from a proposed arranged marriage priests other wanderers clerks and many others Many of these people have their own stories to tell of their spiritual lives The wanderer receives instruction from some about the Jesus Prayer and ultimately instructs othersIn Franny and Zooey Franny recounts at some length p 34 the part of The Way of a Pilgrim which most impressed her It is a long section late in the book in which some small children invite the wanderer to their home telling him in the Salinger that You must come home to Mummy She likes beggars The wanderer goes to the home where he is warmly received by the children s mother and father and learns their stories The pilgrim is invited to dinner which is attended by a number of other people who turn out to be servants of the family described by the husband as sisters in Christ Franny observes that I mean I loved the pilgrim wanting to know who all the ladies were p34 SalingerA portion of the book I liked occurs somewhat later with the same people when the pilgrim is having dinner with the family and with a priest following a service The priest recounts the mundane chores he needs to perform tending the farm and his children and how he lacks tim. Aki Božji pobožnik imao svojeg učitelja duhovnog oca Već su prvi pustinjski oci poznavali duhovne oce ili starceU kontekstu opisa hodočasnika hodočašćenja i uloge staraca treba smjestiti i samu poruku ove knjige Kao prvu poruku čini se možemo uzeti hezihaistički pristup u?. Written in the flavor of many of the ancient holy writings that depict total devotion to Christ as the writers complete aim and a delightful disregard for the comforts and conveniences of this life in pursuit of that aim it is soothing and ncouraging to the soul However it also doesn t ring as completely true or honest and perhaps as a Catholic moral story and maybe Trickle Down Tyranny: Crushing Obama's Dream of the Socialist States of America even a promotion toncourage the reading of the Philokalia which I must read now Although the ncouragement to pray without ceasing is valuable my doubt is aroused when the pilgrim achieves this blissful heavenly state through the constant repetition of a 5 word prayerfor didn t Christ through the constant repetition of a 5 word prayerfor didn t Christ us of prayers that were merely mindless repetition Still the history and authorship of this little book is itself fascinating and I think it is worth the read and is so short it may be read in one sitting I had never heard of this book But I picked this up after reading the initial lines which are really moving It is a brief book In the Dover dition it runs to just 66 pages It is a personal narrative of a wandering Russian pilgrim of the mid 19th century The pilgrim is one armed and his only worldly possessions are his Bible and Philocalia which is a collection of mystical writings of the Orthodox tradition He survives on alms given by others Since he could read and write rare skills in 19th century Russia he gets respect wherever he goes The pilgrim s major spiritual tool is the jesus prayer Lord Jesus Christ have mercy on me He tells us that through long practice this prayer has become co terminus with his breathing There are many interesting stories and spiritual reflections in this book The Language is very simple and lucid As the narrative The Color of Our Sky ends the pilgrim is on way to Jerusalem a trip sponsored by a benefactor I was attracted to the book probably because I like Tolstoy s writings where wencounter many monks and pilgrims Tolstoy s story Father Sergius is about an ascetic monk who realises his vanity and in the nd becomes a pilgrim There are many things *that I learned from this book from the Philokalia through the pilgrim In Chapter 1 how to pray the Jesus prayer *I learned from this book from the Philokalia through the pilgrim In Chapter 1 how to pray the Jesus prayer taught The lder advises the pilgrim to say Lord Jesus Christ have mercy on me 3 thousand times per day then 6 thousand times per day and finally 12 thousand times per day In Chapter 2 the pilgrim travels towards Siberia and meets an officer who talks in depth about the Bible The officer tells the pilgrim that a monk once told him that If you do not understand the Word of God the devils understand it and tremble So therefore ven if one struggles with reading and understanding the Bible there is still benefit to our souls In Chapter 3 the pilgrim is preparing to leave Irkutsk and tells his spiritual father about his life what led him to a life of wandering The pilgrim had once been married and he and his wife were a very pious couple sadly she died and he could not bear the grief living in their hut so he sold it and set off In the final chapter the pilgrim recounts many of the interesting people he met Near Tobolsk the pilgrim meets some children who invite him to their large house The family is well to do and very generous housing and feeding beggars pilgrims and the sick They insisted that he stay with them and had many spiritual discussions together The pilgrim inspired by all that he hears plans to go to Jerusalem next Excellent I don t see why this Eastern Orthodox classic can t be a part of an vangelical Protestant s toolbox We need John Wesley s in this regard I found this book to be uite Cabaret: A Roman Riddle edifying and is definitely worth re reading A collection of a few stories all of which are those of a man a pilgrim wandering the countryside and conversing with various monks priests and other individuals throughout which he isver seeking to learn how to pray without ceasing Reading it was an xcellent use of my time and certainly worthy of its place as a spiritual classic Paul tells us to pray without ceasing That seems like an impossible task This short book is the story of one man s attempt to learn how to pray always This pilgrim in old Russia travels and learns the Jesus Prayer Lord Jesus Christ have mercy on meHe learns to say this continuously Like Don uixote this pilgrim travels around and meets many pious people He learns and teaches the value of the Jesus PrayerThis book has a very simple but xtremely powerful message I fail to pray this nough not ven close but I still see that the prayer is having an impact A Prayer For The HeartI have read books on spirituality from many religious traditions but I had never read The Way of a Pilgrim an anonymous work from the middle or late 19th Centu. Ova knjiga nije drugo nego upravo pokušaj opisati osobno iskustvo jednog ruskog pobožnika bogotražitelja na njegovu putu traženja lica Božjega na njegovu usavršavanju u poniznosti i u vježbanju i u postupnom postizavanju nutarnje neprestane i žarke molitveVeć je u starini sv. E for study The pilgrim momentarily feels sorry for him until the wife tells him that Father speaks this way from humility He always humbles himself but he is righteous and the kindest of men He has been a widower for twenty years now and has been raising a whole family of grandchildren as well as serving freuent services in church The narrator then remembers the following teaching from the PhilokaliaHe who has attained to genuine prayer and love no longer puts things into categories He does not separate the righteous from the sinners but All Eually And Does eually and does judge them just as God the sun to shine and the rain to fall both on the just and the unjustI was pleased that to fall both on the just and the unjustI was pleased that s book led me to The Way of a Pilgrim I learned from the book I can understand why Salinger paid such great attention to it in Franny and ZooeyRobin Friedman ENGLISH The Way of a Pilgrim is a set of seven stories where the protagonist travels the cold Russian steppe stablishing spiritual conversations with various social classes of 19th century During the pilgrimage he recounts his tragic life in an autobiographical way he loses his possessions in a fire and then his wife dies in an vent similar to the current coronavirus pandemic The protagonist gives away what little remains and dedicated to pilgrimage through Holy Russia to survive the duel Target understanding Inner Prayer as therapy for detachment from the material and inner freedomThere is a hidden dimension in prayer that transcends words and synchronizes it with the body to the depths of the soul A series of ascetic techniues hesicastic meditation join the prayer with the rhythm of breathing and This little book largely serves as my mine and my husband s memorable introduction to all things having to do with the Orthodox Christian faith What a wondrous door has been opened to us I highly recommend this book to all Christians not just those xploring Orthodoxy It takes place in 19th century Czarist Russia and follows the adventures of a homeless yet joyful Christian pilgrim His all consuming goal is the learning of continuous prayer In this book we were introduced to a very simple yet powerful prayer and method of helping oneself to pray without ceasing as the Apostle Paul instructs The prayer is called the Jesus Prayer and it is simply Jesus Christ have mercy on me I will say that for my husband this little prayer has set him on a road he never thought he would be on In our use of this prayer God has begun very visibly leading the both of us and actually supernaturally guided my husband to add first a sinner to the nd of this prayer and later Son of God to the middle of it The really interesting thing about that is that AFTER he listened heard and obediently added these phrases we randomly came across other Orthodox books which spoke of this prayer WITH those very phrases added in as a longer version Not only that but he came upon the two page discussion of this prayer in another book through a first time random opening to a page and there it was In addition to learning about a method of achieving constant interior prayer of the heart we get to see Christian community in pre Communist Russia and that made me feel somewhat sad being an omniscient observer of sorts to this story knowing about the terrible persecution of Christians to come less than a century after these vents The other uplifting thing about this story to me is that it comforted me about the plight of the homeless reminding me that ven that humble condition is not the hopeless The Mephisto Threat (Paul Tallis end of the world Even then how onexperiences life largely has to do with the state of the garden of the soul In this book our pilgrim once he learns a good habit of interior prayer journeys on with nothing but some crusts of bread a jar of water his Bible and his copy of The Philokalia A compilation of Orthodox teachings on prayer and mystical life with God and xperiences joy and peace continually This is a story of a wanderer practicing the Jesus Prayer Lord Jesus Christ have mercy on me other forms also xist while wandering around Russia during the last days of serfdom under the rule of Nicholas I The book was first printed in 1884 but had already been written down arlier by someone who had known the original person but was better at writing the story down well There are stories within the main story the wanderer meets people both pious and not so criminal and devout rich and very poor He clearly njoys solitude Just Cause especially because of his prayer practice and freuently reads his Bible and the Philocalia collection which I have also readA good travel story a good addition to knowing the Jesus Prayer and a uick read Injoyed it. ?enju Isusove molitve Grčka riječ hesihia znači sabranost tišinu vanjsku i unutarnju samoću sjedinjenje s Bogom To je način molitve i molitvenog držanja svojstven monasima i
