Meetings with Remarkable Men, G. I. Gurdjieff's autobiographical account of his youth and early travels, has become something of a legend since it was first published in 1963. A compulsive "read" in the tradition of adventure narratives, but suffused with Gurdjieff's unique perspective on life, it is organized around portraits of remarkable men and women who aided Gurdjieff's search for hidden knowledge or accompanied him on his journeys in remote parts of the Near East and Central Asia.             This is a book of lives, not doctrines, although readers will long value Gurdjieff's accounts of conversations with sages. Meetings conveys a haunting sense of what it means to live fully--with conscience, with purpose, and with heart. Among the remarkable individuals whom the reader will come to know are Gurdjieff's father (a traditional bard), a Russian prince dedicated to the search for Truth, a Christian missionary who entered a World Brotherhood deep in Asia, and a woman who escaped white slavery to become a trusted member of Gurdjieff's group of fellow seekers. Gurdjieff's account of their attitudes in the face of external challenges and in the search to understand the mysteries of life is the real substance of this classic work.… (mais)

> « Avant j'étais un homme entièrement absorbé par ses intérêts et ses plaisirs personnels, ainsi que par les intérêts et les plaisirs de ses enfants. J’étais toujours occupé, en pensée, à chercher à satisfaire au mieux mes besoins et les leurs.
Je peux dire que jusque-là tout mon être était dominé par l’égoïsme et que toutes mes émotions et manifestations venaient de ma vanité.
Ma rencontre avec le Père Giovanni a tué tout cela, et depuis lors, peu à peu, est apparu en moi quelque chose qui m’a amené tout entier à la conviction absolue qu’en dehors des agitations de la vie il existe ” quelque chose d'autre ” qui devrait être le but et l’idéal de tout homme plus ou moins capable de penser — et que, seule, cette chose ” autre ” peut rendre l’homme vraiment heureux et lui apporter des valeurs réelles, au lieu de ces “ biens ” illusoires qui, dans la vie ordinaire, lui sont toujours et partout prodigués. » … ; (Source),

Awhile back this was considered to be one of THE books to read about mysticism. I have not read it in quite a long time so I'm not sure how it holds up, but at the time I recall being tremendously impressed. This was one of the first books I read that encouraged me to look beyond the surface of things. The set/setting in which we meet people can have so much influence on us, and it's often not until much later that we realize that that meeting has transformed our lives. And yes, many of us do spend way too much of our lives "asleep." Gurdjieff encourages us to wake up. ( )

I read this book many years ago, and was absolutely captivated by the book. I read it again after I bought it on the Kindle, and was a bit less captivated by the book. The section that I liked the most, was the one about his father. The four commandments of his father captured the crux of what we should all be about, as people. The next section that I liked, was the one about his teacher.

The rest of the sections are fantastic tales in themselves, and are very well told. This is why I give the book a four star rating. The writing style is much more accessible than the way that he wrote about Beelzebub's tales, and this is something that I like. I think that he made Beelzebub a bit too complex, that he made it complex for the sake of complexity.

I cannot say that I learned much from the book, barring the section on his father and teacher. But, the book is a joyous ride indeed. It is the story of a life fully lived. ( )
