The writer and mystic Konstantin Serebrov was born in 1951 in the Northern Caucasus. From a young age he took a keen interest in Hindu mysticism and the concept of enlightenment and cosmic consciousness. In the Caucasus he studied the works of Hindu gurus and practised various techniques to develop consciousness. When in his thirties, Serebrov became interested in the traditions of Western and Eastern alchemy and studied and practised the alchemical doctrines for many years. Serebrov presents the results of years of investigation, in the form of several novels. In the books Serebrov creates a series of collective characters, using all the mystics known to him as prototypes, and installs in these characters all the knowledge he discovered through the diligent study of mystical treaties, and also through his meditations. These books were published in Russia as well in the West, and enjoy the interest of those seeking spirituality.
