Synopsis

Taking shape in a trans-religious mythical reality, Swayambhu follows the journey of two travellers through various manifestations of mystical death, in their quest for spiritual life. The novel is written in the traditions of linguistic kabbalah and Hindu mythology. Divided into two sections, Swayambhu can first be read purely as an intruiging myth. The second section of the novel, Conversations with death, is an extensive footnote apparatus which can be studied to reveal the deeper meanings and kabbalistic techniques conveyed by the myth.
