Monk Who Drinks Coffee: Pocket Book of Spiritual Enlightenment Experiences by Banu Gantri Khan chosen as Medalist Winner in the New Age / Mind-Body-Spirit category of the 2015 New Apple Book Awards for Excellence in Independent Publishing.

Book Synopsis
Is one truly ready to face spiritual experiences? Grown up with idealistic and rational parents, educated in a rational system, in a materialist world, the author was not. In this book of collected spiritual experiences, she wrote briefly her memories kept as secret into sincere short stories. In those morally challenging times, without any known help, she had to find her own way and decided to write this book as an exemplary guide for people going through (or curious about) similar experiences. Even though some stories may philosophically inspire horror movies, indeed it is a niche book, which does not fit in. Monk Who Drinks Coffee is a guide to spiritual experiences dedicated for the strength of free will. Each section focuses on different aspects such as dualities of the universe which give meaning to their opposite energies, (the concept of nirvana and ego, clairvoyance and blindness), dealing with emotions, vision of an angel and the soul, varieties in belief systems, small advices for life, as the final section, our extinction. Two illustrations of the author accompany the book as the artistic urge to express one-self in extremely hard times where there is no way out. This book is less than 50 pages. Language is kept brief and the text short for the modern reader who has so little time.

About the Author
Banu Gantri Khan is an ordinary person who was lucky enough to have seen the strength, the beauty, and the fragility that we all have. In order to share publicly everything that she had experienced as it happened, she had to use a pseudonym.  She didn’t have any religious education and had never planned to have one. However, life had quite the opposite surprises.
