Amidst modern stress, strife and terrorism, it is imperative to realise what spirituality is really all about. Nothing achieves this objective better than reading about the lives and teachings of the world’s greatest seers and philosophers.
Although dealing with metaphysics, the focus of this book is spiritual rather than religious. For spirituality speaks only the language of love, compassion, oneness and bliss. Whatever you may wish to call the Ultimate Reality God, Brahman, Cosmic Consciousness, Atman the first-hand experiences and writings of the great seers and philosophers bring home the Truth that every seeker longs for.
For easy reading, the book has been divided into five categories: the Greek, Chinese, Islamic, Modern and Indian philosophers. The book includes the teaching of:
Socrates ,Confucius, Buddha, Mahavir, Nagarjuna, Al-Farabi, Rumi, Descartes, Hegel, Ramakrishna Paramahansa, Vivekananda, Jiddu Krishnamurti, Aurobindo, Osho and many others. In many cases, the Divine Communion is described in the words of the seer.
A must-read book for every seeker and every rationalist too.
