Atop a 400 million year old monadknock outside of Atlanta Georgia called Arabia Mountain, wandering Bishops, occultists, mystics, and adepts of a multitude of traditions, link arms in mutual aid and support of each other while administering the mysterious points-chauds empowerments and performing various workings of the clergy of the Gnostic Church. Operating under the inclusive banner of Free Illuminism, these individuals from all walks of life work a progressive form of initiation by linking the points empowerments with the Antient & Primitive Rite of Memphis+Misriam, as expressed by the 1921-22 Ecclesiastical Revision of the Rite. Each individual empowered from the Arabia Mountain workings is free to develop and research the mysteries of the points and their alignments to this progressive arm of Freemasonry. This book is the result of such exploration. +PALAMAS, working with his companion in the mysteries and wife, SALOME+, has merged together the two worlds of the Voudon Gnostic inspired points-chauds empowerments with the degrees of the Rites of Memphis & Misraim in an innovative and unique system that is fully workable and expresses the living tradition that stems from Arabia Mountain. The approach is spiritist and the manner of Masonry propounded is mystical. The sincere individual that explores this powerful path will have access to the supersensual realms and encounter entities and energies that are consciousness expanding and life altering. In a single tome +PALAMAS has provided an introduction to the movement and practice of Free Illuminism, created an inspired three degree system that unfolds the Sacred Doctrine of Memphis+Misraim, and revealed an operative and spiritist ritual monitor and guide for working all 97 degrees.

Vickram's life is shattered when he is orphaned due to a building collapse. He was barely twelve years old then. He works at a tea stall vendor along with another orphaned boy, Ravi, of his own age. Ravi too had lost his father and was living with his mother who worked as a maid for a living. She did not return one day and found herself in the missing persons list with the police. Vikram and Ravi both worked at the tea stall for some time then they had an opportunity to work at a construction site as assistants to a mason and a carpenter. Then fate took Vikram to work on a construction site where a multi storey structure was coming up on the very place he had his house. There he learns that the house where he was residing with his parents had come down due to poor construction and criminal negligence of the builders. He vows then and there that he will avenge his parents death. Vikram becomes an assistant to a mason and Ravi an assistant to a carpenter. They both work there in that multi-storey building construction. There they meet some of their long lost friends Iftequar, Manoj and Sarika. They too are the victims of that building collapse. Iftequar and Manoj work in a garage as a mechanic. They too want to assist Vikram to have his revenge on the builders but the sister of Iftequar, Shabnam, says to grow up first for that kind of thing. Vikram and Ravi gather study materials and want to continue their studies. After the completion of that building, Vikram and Ravi work independently as they are grown up boys then. They are offered a job in another famous construction company where they work with dedication and honesty to become supervisors. At that instance, Ravi comes to know of his mother. He is told that she died in a hospital after being in comatose condition for five years. Vikram and Ravi delve into her condition and how she came to that. They find that she was beaten up and raped before she was found unconscious in a railway platform. She was taken to the hospital by the police where she remained in coma for five years. For Ravi, who had thought that she had just abandoned him all along, was a devastating news. He also vows revenge on the perpetrators. Vikram also promises Ravi to hunt down those men who were responsible for her death. When Vikram and Ravi attain the age of twenty-five something, they set out on their own to work elsewhere with different builders and contractors. Vikram goes to work with the builder who had built the building where he was residing when he was a boy. He gets in touch with the builder's daughter. Vikram plans to use her and get his revenge. Ravi too works at different places but stays with Vikram in one apartment. From there they plan their strategy to have their respective revenge.


The Facts

THE FACTS is a work of compelling candour and inventiveness, instructive particularly in its revelation of the interplay between life and art. Philip Roth concentrates on five episodes from this life: his secure city childhood in the thirties and forties; his education in American life at a conventional college in the fifties; his passionate entanglement, as an ambitious young man, with the angriest person he ever met (the 'girl of my dreams' Roth calls her); his clash, as a fledgling writer, with a Jewish establishment outraged by GOODBYE, COLUMBUS; and his discovery, in the excesses of the sixties, of an unmined side to his talent that led him to write PORTNOY'S COMPLAINT. The book concludes surprisingly - in true Rothian fashion - with a sustained assault by the novelist against his proficiencies as an autobiographer.

About the Author

In the 1990s Philip Roth won America's four major literary awards in succession: the National Book Critics Circle Award for Patrimony (1991), the PEN/Faulkner Award for Operation Shylock (1993), the National Book Award for Sabbath's Theater (1995), and the Pulitzer Prize in fiction for American Pastoral (1997). He won the Ambassador Book Award of the English-Speaking Union for I Married a Communist (1998); in the same year he received the National Medal of Arts at the White House. Previously he won the National Book Critics Circle Award for The Counterlife (1986) and the National Book Award for his first book, Goodbye, Columbus (1959). In 2000 he published The Human Stain, concluding a trilogy that depicts the ideological ethos of postwar America. For The Human Stain Roth received his second PEN/Faulkner Award as well as Britain's W. H. Smith Award for the Best Book of the Year. In 2001 he received the highest award of the American Academy of Arts and Letters, the Gold Medal in fiction, given every six years 'for the entire work of the recipient'.
