Overview

The Pleasantries of Krishnamurphy: Revelations from an Irish Ashram combines humour, fantasy and the wellsprings of spiritual traditions, East and West. There is a distinct Sufi flavour to The Pleasantries, with the earthy wisdom and humour of Nasroodeen (that wise fool and foolish wise man), and all the refined and airy wit that those who know and love Ireland and the Irish will recognise.

A rich, humorous and wise miscellany of stories and verse by the distinguished Irish author, Gabriel Rosenstock. Welcome to the quixotic world of Krishnamurphy and the fundamental tenets of Spiritual Anarchy. A sage? A maverick? A complete idiot? Is he fooling his followers or are they awakening, one by one, to the deepest mysteries of life and the core of their own being? And what is the roles of the Ashram Cook in all of this? Discover his unique Nothing Soup. It is not called Nothing Soup for nothing!

Enter this Irish ashram—at your own peril—and judge for yourself. Wit or wisdom? Divine humor? Many have gone mad finding out.  You're next!
