The Treasure Lies Where You Search The Least

This is the story of Santiago, a shepherd boy who dreams of traveling the world and discovering treasures, and is courageous enough to walk in the direction of his desires. In order to realize the best that his destiny has to offer, he travels from his home in Spain, through the markets of Tangiers, and into the great Egyptian desert.

This is the story of Santiago, a shepherd boy who dreams of traveling the world and discovering treasures, and is courageous enough to walk in the direction of his desires. In order to realize the best that his destiny has to offer, he travels from his home in Spain, through the markets of Tangiers, and into the great Egyptian desert. He gets duped, experiences love, loses and makes money, learns a different language, meets different people, finds himself in pleasant and not-so- pleasant situations. His journey is full of adventure and lessons, while he also finds the privilege of meeting a king, a desert woman and an alchemist, each adding to his life new turns and perceptions.

Each one of us are in search of a treasure, a treasure hidden somewhere far just like Santiago, a young shepherd from Andalusia who constantly get dreams about a hidden treasure. On opening up to his dreams to an astrologer and the King of Salem, both of them encouraged him to go ahead in search of his dreams. With all the money he earned and taking all the risks, he set forward on his journey to Egypt to find the hidden treasure. Enroute, he meets an Englishman , who is also on a journey to find an alchemist (someone who can turn any metal into gold). Both the travellers believe that our soul is of the world, Santiago learns that by connecting himself to the world whereas the Englishman learns from complex book. From then on, whatever happened with Santiago was all a message from the soul of the world and all them pointed Santiago in the direction of his quest.

Nobody knows what the treasure or whether Santiago will ever be able to surmount the obstacles on the way, until Santiago mentions of this dream to a fellow tribesmen of Egypt. When the tribesmen also agrees to seeing treasure hidden, but somewhere in Spain, which makes Santiago believe that the treasure was all the while in Spain. So what starts as a quest for worldly returns ends as a discovery of finding treasure within. Which is the case with all of us, we all go out of our reach to find God, treasure, knowledge , but somewhere within us every treasure lies.
