For thousands of years, certain masters of wisdom have appeared to explain to mankind the problems of human existence. They have pointed out the basic facts of life as understood by them, and the paths of human Endeavour needed for further evolutionary progress. The holy land of India seems to have been prolific in giving birth to many schools of thought which, many a time, appear to be at variance with one another.
In the present age, certain scientific findings have rendered many older concepts out of date. For instance, the theory of biological evolution and the relativity theory have revolutionized the basis concept of reality. It is therefore useful to try to formulate a whole new concept of the reality behind human existence from a fresh point of view.
This book is an invite to examine the fundamental nature of the universe as a dynamic interplay of matter, energy, space, time, consciousness and life.
In simple language, but with great insight, the evolutionary journey of consciousness from the mineral through to the human kingdom is traced. We learn of the gradual transition from primitive man, who is ruled by his sense organs, to the awaken3d individual who has gained full command over them.
With clarity and a clear understanding of the subject, the author describes how man's initial identification with a separate self eventually gives rise to his merging with the all-pervading consciousness, which is the true goal of his life.
