Author Biography

At the age of sixteen Aviilokín K'shi had a kundalini awakening, which is a primal, cosmic, evolutionary power located at the base of the spine. When awoken, it nourishes a person's evolutionary potential. He attained a modest degree of mediumship; in his contact with "the other side" he was told that meditation is a developed facet of his soul, and that he should give in to it. He was given methods of meditation, which ultimately allowed him to reintegrate the mystical cultivation of his previous lifetimes; including that of the Taoist path. He feels the essence of Taoism is the most relevant gift he wishes to pass on to others, because its emphasis lies so strongly on transcending dogma and human bias, becoming one with something universal in a very free and individualistic way.

Lions of Virtue: The Warrior and the Child is a story told in poetic verse in the inspirational, motivational, and emotional writing subgenres, and was penned by author Aviilokín K'shi. The work is intended for the general adult reading audience and follows a fictional journey which is an allegory for the Taoist way of being in Chinese spirituality. Following the events after protagonist Na'kar Runelayer discovers a diamond in the moonlight, the metered verses take readers on a meditative, expressive, and spiritual journey to find themselves. What results is a highly engrossing poetic tale that is sure to keep readers turning the pages from cover to cover, and teach them something inspirational about themselves along the way.

Author Aviilokín K'shi has crafted a gorgeously penned work of fiction with plenty of poetic delights, memorable phrases, and key spiritual wisdom to offer readers. This is a work that straddles the worlds of fact and fiction so beautifully, allowing us to escape into a well-told fable-style story of spiritualism and reflection, but also underpinning each significant moment with the opportunity to learn about Taoism and the serenity and wisdom that this mystic philosophy has to offer us all. A beautiful parable with a message as strong in the modern world as it ever was, this is a book that I could see myself returning to again and again. Overall, I would highly recommend Lions of Virtue: The Warrior and the Child to fans of emotive and inspirational works, fictional stories set deep in true meaning, and for readers of stories in verse everywhere.
