In January 1920, Tcheslaw Tchekhovitch, 20 years of age, was part of the Polish contingent of the Tsar's army in retreat to Constantinople.
While haunted by memories of the atrocities of the Bolshevik revolution, he had a strange intuition that there exists another life, a life full of meaning. Seeing a poster announcing lectures by P.D. Ouspensky titled "The ancient wisdom of the East revealed through a new current in Western thought," he decided to attend. This contact led to Tchekhovitch's providential meeting with G.I. Gurdjieff, the man who would become his teacher and spiritual master.
From the text:
His explanations left me both flabbergasted and, at the same time, enlightened beyond anything I could have hoped for. One thing had become certain -- I was ready to follow him anywhere. Faced with such intelligence, there was no need to ask whether he deserved my confidence. It was simply self-evident.
Gurdjieff: A Master in Life chronicles 28 years of intense interaction between master and pupil, and sheds fresh light on the methods Gurdjieff used to open his pupils to an inner reality. Among Tchekhovitch's remarkable anecdotes are stories of Gurdjieff's family, life at the Prieure, painful learning experiences, and mysterious cures.
