An insightful, informative and definitive work that projects spirituality in a new light and reveals how it can transform us and bring peace and happiness all around
In this compact volume, Gian Kumar, a thinker by nature, provides a comprehensive overview of the seemingly mysterious, yet accessible, world of spirituality. Those seriously seeking to understand spirituality and its myriad aspects will find answers to questions they have been pondering over for years, such as: Is God only in the mind? Is reality the same for all of us? How do we go beyond the limitations of the body and the mind to attain a higher plane of consciousness and awareness? What is self-realization? What kind of entity is the soul?
The author defines spiritual power as 'that inner awareness and the capability to awaken our mind from the ignorance that we are not solely body and mind, but something more '. He goes to explain in detail that 'something more '.
The author contends that acquiring spiritual bliss may not be within everybody 's reach, but those who are keen and sincere can achieve this objective by delving deep into their inner selves to find out their shortcomings and how to overcome them so that they can lead complete and wholesome lives.
Gian Kumar was born in a traditional Hindu family in Burma (now Myanmar) and later moved to India. The inherent confusion and chaos underlying religion (which he found dogmatic) gradually propelled him towards spirituality, which proved to be a revelation and provided him inner peace and tranquillity. He has written three books: Know Thyself, Think from the Heart and Love from the Mind and The Ultimate Reality (all three published in 2015). He lives with his family in New Delhi and also in his spiritual home at Rishikesh (in Uttarakhand).
