The Brazilian author PAULO COELHO was born in 1947 in the city of Rio de Janeiro. Before dedicating his life completely to literature, he worked as theatre director and actor, lyricist and journalist. In 1986, PAULO COELHO did the pilgrimage to Saint James of Compostella, an experience later to be documented in his book The Pilgrimage. In the following year, COELHO published The Alchemist. Slow initial sales convinced his first publisher to drop the novel, but it went on to become one of the best selling Brazilian books of all time. Other titles include Brida (1990), The Valkyries (1992), By the river Piedra I sat Down and Wept (1994), the collection of his best columns published in the Brazilian newspaper Folha de São Paulo entitle Maktub (1994), the compilation of texts Phrases (1995), The Fifth Mountain (1996), Manual of a Warrior of Light (1997), Veronika decides to die (1998), The Devil and Miss Prym (2000), the compilation of traditional tales in Stories for parents, children and grandchildren (2001), Eleven Minutes (2003), The Zahir (2005), The Witch of Portobello (2006) and Winner Stands Alone (to be released in 2009). During the months of March, April, May and June 2006, Paulo Coelho traveled to celebrate the 20th anniversary of his pilgrimage to Saint James of Compostella in 1986. He also held surprise book signings - announced one day in advance - in some cities along the way, to have a chance to meet his readers. In ninety days of pilgrimage the author traveled around the globe and took the famous Transiberrian train that took him to Vladivostok. During this experience Paulo Coelho launched his blog Walking the Path - The Pilgrimage in order to share with his readers his impressions. Since this first blog Paulo Coelho has expanded his presence in the internet with his daily blogs in Wordpress, Myspace & Facebook. He is equally present in media sharing sites such as Youtube and Flickr, offering on a regular basis not only texts but also videos and pictures to his readers. From this intensive interest and use of the Internet sprang his bold new project: The Experimental Witch where he invites his readers to adapt to the screen his book The Witch of Portobello. Indeed Paulo Coelho is a firm believer of Internet as a new media and is the first Best-selling author to actively support online free distribution of his work.

I remember I used to date a boy who, knowing my almost legendary loathing of Coelho, bought me this book as a joke. I honestly can't believe this was published. It doesn't even make sense!

Each time he came over I would greet him with a quote from the book and we would meditate over it for a bit.

- This was another installment of Men&Books in my life. I will write a proper memoir with this theme one day.

It was a book full of proverbs, words of encouragement and wisdom, filled with so much realization on life. As you go along reading each page, you would realize that you can relate to what the author is sharing to us, that in each one of us there is a warrior of light, hiding beneath our folds of fear, doubts and loneliness. We are a Warrior of Light, whether we believe in it at first or not, because we are servants of the longingness to find our dreams, to conquer our fears and live life with pure happiness and contentment. A Warrior of Light is not perfect, and more than we could imagine, have more flaws than what eyes can perceive;but a Warrior of Light is not afraid to admit his mistakes and go through about his chosen path with the hope that he will soon find his way to his Personal Legend. He believes that no one can fulfill his destiny but he alone; and that without God, he is nothing but a mere dust on the face of the Earth.

This book is not only a book of inspirational quotations but a book reflecting our own personal endeavors and feelings; it's a mirror of our ownselves, seeing through it that we are capable and we can be strong with always in our minds and hearts the gift of faith, hope and love.

I recommend this books, not only for those who wants to read somethings new, but most especially for who feels discouraged in life, for those who thinks that his life is meaningless and filled with loneliness. Be not afraid to reflect on your life, and discover that you are more than what you think you can be. :)

Bamba di mattina, bel tempo si avvicina

"Impara a guardare dentro il tuo cuore e imparerai a conoscere te stesso."

Un portafoglio sfilato dalla tasca sarebbe un'azione più onesta.
Frasi pseudofilosofiche e ovvietà random sono il fulcro di questo compendio per noi guerrieri della luce, sempre pronti a rialzarci, dopo ogni sconfitta, più forti di prima. Ci siamo stufati di questi insegnamenti New Age che lasciano il tempo che trovano: i mediocri come noi desiderano rialzarsi solo per prendere maggiore rincorsa verso un abisso più profondo. Coelho, noi vogliamo i demotivatori dell'anima, non gli insegnamenti tranquillamente accessibili dai guru del marketing online (che ti spiegano come fare sette milioni di euro in un pomeriggio).

هذه الكتاب نستطيع ان نقول عليه حكم واحداث اكثر من رواية، لان اذا قلنا انه رواية فإننا سوف نظلمه.
مع جمال الحكم والاحداث التي موجودة في الكتاب هناك البداية والخاتمة الرائعة جدا من قبل الكاتب، أنا برأي انه ايظا ابداع وسرد جميل من قبل باولو كويولو ♥️.
بس أتمنى من كل من يقرأ هذه الرواية لا يحكم عليه من باب دينيه أو توجهاته أخذ منه ما يناسبك وتقبله بكل روح إنسانية متطلعة للأفكار الجميلة والمفقيدة.

شوان مجيد 😉

"A Warrior of Light values a child's eyes because they are able to look at the world without bitterness. When he wants to find out if the person beside him is worthy of his trust, he tries to see him as a child would."

I mean, totally. Little kids are so great a spotting immediately if an adult is trustworthy or not. That is why paedophiles have such an impossible task.

"“A warrior cannot lower his head - otherwise he loses sight of the horizon of his dreams.”

- warrior steps in dog shit -

"“To travel is the experience of ceasing to be the person you are trying to be, and becoming the person you really are.”

But what if I am trying to be a person who travels? And have set up a cool Instagram account just for that reason?

"“So, a warrior of the light must be prepared to be patient at difficult times, and know that the Universe is conspiring in his favor, even if he does not understand how.”

Ah. It would have been so much easier for those in Auschwitz if they knew this. Then they could have, like, totes chilled about the whole thing.


I truly despise this man and his entire ridiculous output, not least because of the poor millions of readers who give their hard-earned money to him on the basis of a complete con-trick. I am convinced he knows very well that everything he writes is bullshit. It is all marketing.

The only good thing about him is he has given the wonderful Margaret Jull Costa some translating work.

I am now reading this book for the third time. With each reading I underline and highlight something newly discovered that connects and validates my current experience and understanding. Why this book is fascinatingly useful to me is, its a compilation of seeds that grow when watered by my personal experience and meditative thought. In and of itself, it does not do the dirty work or heavy lifting for you, as many other books intend to do. This book is not entertaining you. It waits for you to mix your perspective and thought with it, before it shows its true value, potential and colour. Because we change and grow spiritually,mentally and in so many other ways, this book takes on and reveals many new insights and personal validations/confirmations as we change.
Simply put, this book presents windows of opportunity through which to view yourself, if you take the leap and see yourself as a potent individual living a meaningful life. So this is not simply a novel, a story, a fable or a biography etc., it a compilation of thought prescriptions that when taken with a dosage of meditative silence expands the perception and perspective of the self and by extension the depth of our every experience. This book, like all books, is what you make it and what you see reflected in it. A simple treasure that you can grow endlessly.

if other readers choose "rich dad poor dad" or "the secret" as their book bible, i prefer to drift away with "the warrior of light"

paulo coelho writes the philosophy of warrior of light for the ones who appreciate the miracle of being alive and to guide each soul to embark to their own destiny.

quoted these from paulo's blog:

The Warrior possesses the art of the blow and the art of pardon. He knows how to use both with equal skill.

The Warrior of Light listens to Lao Tzu when he says that we must detach ourselves from the idea of days and hours and pay more and more attention to the minutes.

The Warrior of Light contemplates the two columns beside the door he plans to open. One is called Fear, the other Desire.
The Warrior looks at the column of Fear, where he reads: “you are about to enter an unknown and dangerous world where all that you have learned up to now will be of no use whatsoever.”
The Warrior of Light looks at the column of Desire, where he reads: “you are about to leave a known world where all the things you always wanted and all that you have fought so hard for are kept.”
The Warrior smiles, because nothing can frighten him and nothing can hold him. With the confidence of those who know what they want, he opens the door.

Re-read 07/19:

I love this book. It's the perfect little book to flick through when you need inspiration. You gotta have an open mind and some of the interpretations can be a little strange but if you are looking for inspiration this is a great place to start.

It's a gentle reminder to trust your own morals and instincts and pay attention to the world around you.

Love it.

Original Review:

Great little guide for the spiritually-minded, this is simply written yet profound. Taken literally it will seem bizarre and possibly boring, but take the time to reflect on the meaning of these passages and you will be rewarded with some important life lessons.

This collection needs to be read slowly and ruminated upon, otherwise it's a wasted read. Its strength lies in its simplicity; the passages are easy to read and enjoyable individually, so that one might enjoy them out of order. As the title suggests, this is very much for the warriors of light - those of us trying to live a more fulfilling life of mindfulness and appreciation, those on the spiritual path, those seeking to learn more about themselves and so grow. For those not yet on such a path, this will prove to be a dull, meaningless read. For the former, though, I highly recommend.

This book has been with me through thick and thin and it is quite special because I don't even like it. I re-read it from time to time because a special friend has called me for years "the Warrior of the Light" and addressed quotes from this book as if it would be me. And that makes a book special. But now almost 20 years after the first time this friend did that, I am feeling like I understand more and I am capable to notice more. It's odd, but at the same time gives a fateful feeling.

Otherwise, my review below from the last time I re-read this book stands.

My review from 2018:

This book is a big metaphor and, I think, people see in it what they choose to see. Seeing who they would want to be - a better version of themselves. I like that quite a bit.

I read this book some years ago for the first time and didn’t understand it entirely, I still don’t, but this time I also got annoyed. I was annoyed at how many biblical, faith and God references there were. They do nothing for me and the book is packed with them, so you can calculate the effect this book had on me.

There are some precious quotes that have been with me for years and mean a lot to me, but that is not as much connected to this book or author as it is with other people using them at the right moments. And I think that cutting up this book and using all the bits out of context is the best thing to do with this book. Because when it is together it is sort of unbearable.

This book was very inspiring to me. It was the right book at the right time. And with being a psychotherapist I have often had very similar thoughts as Paulo Coelho when I work with people, helping them through their pain and suffering. The book is beautifully written and full of symbolism. The Warrior of light served as metaphor for those who serve God and are not perfect, but human striving toward God's light.

Thought I would include some quotes below from Paulo Coelho's book.
"Like the fighter, the Warrior of Light is aware of his or her immense strength, and will never fight with anyone who does not deserve the honor of combat".

"A Warrior of the Light might not understand the Almighty's intentions, but he allows his life to develop according to His creator's plans. He asks to be spared suffering, he asks for joy in the Good Fight, but he never forgets to add, " Thy will be done."

" The Warrior plunges unhesitatingly into the river of passions always flowing through his life."
" A Warrior can distinguish between the transient and enduring."

" Why bother to sword fight when you are so much better than they are?" asks a traveler regarding the Warrior of light sword fighting with his students.

"Because in challenging me, what they really want is to talk to me, and this is my way of keeping the dialogue open," replies the Warrior.

" A Warrior of light does not waste his time listening to provocations, he has a destiny to fulfill. He tries to establish waht he can truly rely on. And he always checks that he carries three things with him: faith, hope and love.

If these three things are there, he does not hestitate to go forward."

This is the one book I want to read again and again and again. This is the one book I want to keep in my bag when I go out and beside my bed when I go to sleep. This is the one book I want to open at a random page to see how I should respond to a certain situation.

This is a book full of pure kindness.

This is MY book.

قال الشاب في خاتمة الكتاب:
"لاحظت أن عدداً من الأمور التي أخبرتني إياها تناقض بعضها بعضاً".
ولكن للأسف، ما قاله الشاب لم يستحق أي رد من المرأة الغامضة.

هذا الكتاب ليس أول تجربة فاشلة لي مع باولو، لكن بدون منازع إنها، الأفشل.
متناقض. ولربما كتب ليكون كتاب مقدس لقراء باولو، يصف لهم كيف يكون الإنسان الصالح أو كما لقبه "محارب الضوء".

Μέχρι τώρα είναι το καλύτερο βιβλίο του Coelho που έχω διαβάσει γιατί συμπυκνώνει ηθικά διδάγματα όπως ο ''Προφήτης'' του στοχαστή Gibran. Μας παραδίδει αυτό το εγχειρίδιο για να ξυπνήσουμε τον πολεμιστή του φωτός που αναπαύεται μέσα μας.
Μας καθοδηγεί να μην προφέρουμε το "ναι'' με τα χείλη, εάν η καρδιά μας λέει "όχι".
Μας προτρέπει να συμπεριφερόμαστε σαν το νερό και να ρέουμε ανάμεσα στα εμπόδια που συναντάμε.
Μας προειδοποιεί να χρησιμοποιούμε τη μοναξιά αλλά να μην την αφήνουμε να μας χρησιμοποιήσει.
Μας καθησυχάζει πως όταν είμαστε θλιμμένοι αποδεικνύεται πως η ψυχή μας είναι ακόμη ζωντανή.
Γατί ο πόνος του χθες είναι η δύναμη του πολεμιστή του φωτός.

This was a book club choice and chosen mainly because we were looking for a book in Spanish that would be a fairly easy read. I thought the overarching story of the boy on the beach was worthless and the "advice" on being a warrior of the light was contradictory and simplistic. If vaguely spiritualistic babble really motivates you - this is your book.

Ένα μικρό εγχειρίδιο με μεγάλες αλήθειες για τη ζωή. Κάθε μέρα, μια νέα σελίδα και μια νέα καθοδήγηση- συμβουλή για να μπορέσουμε να γίνουμε και εμείς πολεμιστές του φωτός. Ο Paulo Coelho μαζεύει ψήγματα πίστης και αγάπης για να γίνει καλύτερη η καθημερινότητά μας και να βρούμε το φως που υπάρχει μέσα μας.

ένας πολεμιστής του φωτός :
-γνωρίζει πως μέσα στη σιωπή της καρδιάς του υπάρχει μια τάξη που τον οδηγεί
-συμπεριφέρεται σαν το νερό και ρέει ανάμεσα στα εμπόδια που συναντά
-ξέρει, επίσης ότι, πριν αλλάξει τον κόσμο, πρέπει να αλλάξει τον εαυτό του
-ξέρει πως το ένστικτο είναι το αλφάβητο του Θεού
-βλέπει ό,τι είναι όμορφο, επειδή έχει την ομορφιά μέσα του, επειδή ο κόσμος είναι ένας καθρέφτης που ξαναστέλνει σε κάθε άνθρωπο την αντανάκλαση του προσώπου του

Γι' αυτό είναι πολεμιστές του φωτός.Επειδή κάνουν λάθη. Επειδή αναρωτιούνται. Επειδή επιμένουν να βρουν ένα νόημα.Και στο τέλος θα το βρουν.
Η φύση προφυλάσσει απ' όλα τα χτυπήματα. Η πίστη μεταβάλλει το δηλητήριο σε κρυστάλλινο νερό.

من کتابی با نام قوانین قرن بیست و یکم رو خوندم و از اونجایی که توی گودریدز پیداش نکردم،عنوان اصلی ای که اول کتاب ذکر شده بود رو سرچ کردم و این کتاب رو پیدا کردم که به عنوان «سلحشور نور »یا « راهنمای رزم آور نور»ترجمه شده،هنوزم دقیق نمیدونم این کتاب ۱۰۴ صفحه ای چی بود؟!چون با توجه به کتاب اصلی که حدود۱۶۲ صفحه داره یکم داستان عجیب میشه،یعنی این کتابی که من خوندم ۶۰صفحه نداشت!؟
خلاصه بگذریم،این کتاب رو صرفا چون توی کتابخونه یکی از دوستام بود برداشتم و به علت کم حجم بودن توی سی دقیقه خوندم و تمومش کردم. خب پیشنهاد میکنم نخونید این کتاب رو؛عملا چیزی بهتون اضافه نمیکنه اما خب هرکسی سلیقه و تفکر مخصوص به خودشو داره ،پس اگر هم دوست داشتید بخونیدش😉

“As I finish reading the prologue, it strikes me that we spend an incredible amount of time and effort fighting to achieve. We determine what is to be done, and plow through all the divine messages that cross our paths in the name of our objectives. Perhaps it’s only after we’ve fought for long enough, lost a sufficient amount of blood in our self-imposed battles and come to terms with our permanent scars that we finally give in just enough to actually realize what’s around us.

“The pandemonium of modern day madness has become too much for us to control, so we turn to ourselves – not inward, but simply in the general direction of ourselves – and begin to prune. We snip away the illogical as we see it, we clip the creativity and shave the originality until we create sterility, all in the name of order. But it’s those longer branches and fallen leaves that grant us access to a broader perspective – one that includes passion, and joy, and courage to bet on faith. In this space of acceptance, achievement becomes a natural state, and the belief in the necessity to fight for whatever you believe should be yours is dissolved into the lush backdrop of humility, authenticity and grace.”

The more Coelho tries to be inspirational, the more he lacks.

Ah, I was a huge fan of this book when I read it and I was possibly 13. Now I look back to it, I only can say that it was a book version of being drama queen. There is no drama at all,in the boook. But, the system of thought is the same as drama queens that tries to make all the problems bigger than they actually are and then start to fight with imaginational enemies.

No, Coelho. Not this. Advicing people to be strong in the way of battlefields and wars and conflicts etc. is not the way this should be happened. But it did anyways.

After tasting the popularity of these kind of "drama queenish, fighter assumptionish of self" books, he kept on writing at this level, not even a step further.

I am truely so sad that this book was my favourite when I'm 13, I'm ashamed of myself. More, I'm ashamed of Coelho for being a victim of popular desires. I wish he was a literature person who writes classy books but he wasn't and he will never be.

I know this will state this is my 2nd time reading this book....but I've read it more times than I can count. It just speaks to me in so many ways-and I read snippets of it when I need to.

The Alchemist was great, so naturally I went out and bought 2 more Coelho books. The Valkeries was not very good and gives a lot of insight into Paulo himself (not impressed). Then I started to read Warrior of Light and truly believe that Paulo totally misses the boat on what it means to be a Warrior of Light. Suprisingly for someone who writes metaphysical books, he can't see around his own ego long enough to put anything of value on the page. This did it for me, as far as I am concerned read the Alchemist and move on.

Popsinis dvasingumo miksas.
„Šviesos kariui rūpi, ką mato vaiko akys. Nes jos moka žvelgti į pasaulį be kartėlio. Kai nori sužinoti, ar asmuo, esantis šalia, vertas pasitikėjimo, stengiasi kaip vaikas pasižiūrėti jam į akis. Šviesos karys niekada neužmiršta padėkoti. Niekada neužmiršta draugų.“

A Book Of Great Wisdom.

“behind the mask of ice that people wear, there beats a heart of fire.”

“The only trap I must beware not to fall into, is to think that each day is the same as the next. In fact, each morning brings with it a hidden miracle, and we must pay attention to this miracle.”

“From the moment we are born, people tell us that the world is like this and like that, this way, that way. It is natural that - for a certain period of time - we end up believing what we are told. But we must soon push these ideas aside and discover our own way of living reality.”

“That is the most common excuse, and the most foolish of all. Love has never prevented a man from following his dreams. If she truly loves you, she will want the best for you.”

قد يعتبر المثقف العربي هذا الكتاب خفيفاً وغير عميق وغير أكاديمي ولا يليق به أن يقرأه، ولكن هذا المثقف غبي ولذلك فهو لا يستطيع رؤية الجمال والحكمة الكامنة بل والحقيقة الواضحة في صفحات هذا الكتاب، قراءة ممتعة ولتذهب النخبوية إلى الجحيم :)
