Significance And Means Of Self – Knowledge

Author: Tushar Choksi
Publisher: Invincible Publishers

Award Category: English Non-fiction
About the Book: 

"Human life is a journey of an individual, from suffering to relatively happy, and from a relatively happy towards the absolutely happy and safe."
By analyzing and understanding the true nature of an individual in the light of Vedant, we can get rid of suffering and sorrow clinging to us. Self-knowledge determines our true well-being. If I understand the significance of self-knowledge, I find the key to how to be happy and safe at all times and everywhere irrespective of objective conditions surrounding me.
This book dives into human personality. Not only does it show the connection of human suffering with its root, self-ignorance, but it also provides the means to gain self-knowledge. Once I understand the significance of self-knowledge, then I want it. Because self-knowledge is the subtle origin and resolution of all secular knowledge, the means of self-knowledge that train the mind are indispensable. The self becomes in reaching distance of the self when these tools of self-knowledge are practiced.

Excerpt: 

"THE LIFE OF A HUMAN BEING IS GROWTH IN SELF-KNOWLEDGE UNTIL HE REALIZES HE IS ASMASARI OR THE ANANDA NATURE OF THE SELF."

"THE RECOGNITION OF THE SAME SELF IN ALL BEINGS TURNS A HUMAN BEING INTO A SAGE OR SEER. A PERSON IS A SAGE OR SEER NOT DUE TO HAVING A BEARD, DEGREE, PARTICULAR SKIN COLOR, NATIONALITY, OR GENDER, BUT BECAUSE HE BEHOLDS THIS PROFOUND VISION OF EQUALITY IN ALL BEINGS AND LIVES ACCORDING TO THAT VISION."

"MIND IS AN EXPRESSION OF THE SELF-EVIDENT SELF. NOT KNOWING THE SELF, THE MIND BEHAVES AS. WHILE KNOWING THE SELF, THE MIND BECOMES AN EXPRESSION OF THE FREEDOM OF SELF. NOT UNDERSTANDING THE IDENTITY OF THE MIND CREATES SUFFERING FOR A HUMAN BEING."

"ISHVARA, IN THE FORM OF COSMIC LAW OR ANTARYAMIN, RULES THE UNIVERSE FROM WITHIN. HUMANNESS MEANS ADORING UNIVERSAL AND ETERNAL MORAL VALUES AND ADHERING TO THE RIGHT CONDUCT THROUGHOUT LIFE. MORAL VALUES BRING ORDER INTO A HUMAN BEING'S EMOTIONS, THOUGHTS, AND ACTIONS.
