Book Description

Life is a grate book. Many commentaries have been written on the truth of life in the past and continue to be written. And it is expected that this process will go on. The gross body, which is the visible part, is one aspect of life. This is a conglomeration of skin, flesh and bones. The other aspect of life is awareness, which is a part of ultimate reality. We are more concerned and attached with our gross body and hence experience disease, old age, birth, death, attachment and detachment. We realize happiness and sorrow through our gross body. It is possible to experience disease and old age without becoming unhappy. This is possible only when we establish our contact, with our awareness, the ultimate reality.

Learning only about one side, i.e., the gross aspect of life alone cannot lead to a happy life. In order to lead a good life, it is necessary to learn about the second aspect, i.e., awareness. Learning about the second aspect of life only enables us to change our undesirable habits and forms our integrated personality.

The two aspects of life, i.e., gross and subtle, appear to be separate but they may be bridged together through the practice of friendliness and awareness. A person, who has learnt the concept of friendliness and awareness, is able to get happiness, peace and success in his life. He can shun negativity and pessimism and become optimistic, constructive and creative.

This book projects this point of view and has been edited by Muni Dulharaj ji. We hope this fruit of spirituality coupled with this blessing of Acharyashree reaches a wider section of society.

Back of the Book

Life is great book. Since ancient times many commentaries have been written on the truth of life. Even today, we find several thinkers and philosophers who give valuable, comments and throw light on life's mysteries.

Acharya Mahapragya's The Truth of Life is a significant step in the direction of unraveling the enigma that is life. He defines life in two aspects – Grossness and Awareness. The gross body, which is the visible part, is a conglomeration of skin, flesh and bones. Awareness, on the other hand, is a part of the ultimate reality. According to Acharya Mahapragya, a person who has learnt the concept of awareness and friendliness is able to achieve happiness, peace and success in his life.

Truth of life also answers some common questions about the existence of God or Ishwara, and offers guidelines on self-management, development and demonstration of power, sublimation of sexual power and many more.

Written in a simple and lucid style, Truth of life is a must read for all those who want to explore the ultimate reality.
