Description: I carry this book around with me everywhere I go. It is my constant companion when my wife goes to the doctor's office, and that's alot.

The first part of the book is simialr to the larger version of the Philokalia. Only this volume is a much easier read. The depth of his sayings is enormous and reading them over a dozen times still leaves you pondering.

The second part of the book is his amazing and supernatural conversation with N.A. Motovilov on "The Acquisition of the Holy Spirit".

The third part of the book is devoted to the Diveyevo monastery and his prophesy on the resurrection of Russia as well as himself.

I can't recommend this little gem enough.

I have the entire series of the Little Russian Philokalia! I love it so much! They are full of deep wisdom that touches the soul. I agree with Paul, if you don't own one of these series, get one!!!!

In Christ,
