The Way of a Pilgrim and its sequel, The Pilgrim Continues His Way, portray the traditions and interior life of Eastern Orthodox Spirituality. Written by an anonymous Russian Christian, the original manuscript came into the hands of a monk on Mount Athos in the nineteenth century and was first published in 1884. These chronicles follow the author as he travels through mid-nineteenth-century Russia and Siberia, visiting the monasteries and shrines of the saints in order to "pray without ceasing." His journey leads him to a staret, a Russian spiritual master who teaches him the spiritual discipline known as the Jesus Prayer - the uninterrupted mantra-like invocation of the name of Jesus. This extraordinary account brings the soul of Eastern Christianity to the West.
