Introduction

Meditation essentially means perceiving deeper truths from within.

For those who thought that meditation is a closed-eyed phenomenon, I beg to differ. And offer them Open-eyed Meditations, a book that shows another perspective to meditation.

When you are open to life, life opens up to you. The upper limit of your ability to learn. Nature is actually a school that happily teaches eager students the secret lessons of life. Open-eyed Meditation is a collection of thoughts about various aspects of life that is purely inspired by observing the world through the lenses of Vedic epics.

Each meditation in the book deals with a modern problem that each one of us encounters in life and is accompanied by profound insights to those situations though a story or a character from the ancient epics.

Why ancient epics? The reason being that there is something attractive about the epics like the Mahabharata and the Pamayana that has kept them alive century after century. Beyond the storyline, something deeper is waiting to be discovered from these ancient texts. This book is an attempt to uncover the hidden layer of wealth that is cleverly packaged within the commonly known storylines.

Albert Einstein said, 'Life is like riding a bicycle; to keep the balance one has to keep moving.' For most people, there is no time to stop to learn how to maintain good relationships, how to become effective leaders, how to manage complications in life, and so on and so forth. They are already on the bicycle of life and most of the times speedily trending downwards. In such a dedicate situation any quick tip to help retain the balance is always welcome!

Thus, Open-eyed Mediations is a distillation of ancient wisdom tips for modern lives; a unique self-help book wherein each meditation takes you on a journey to the past, bringing a secrete herb to heal a problem of the present.

Whether you are dealing with complex dynamics of relationships or solving an impossible crisis in your life or coming to terms with embarrassing failures or struggling with important decisions or dealing with any kind of addiction, this book offers valuable nuggets of wisdom and action point resources to deal with it all.

Open-eyed Meditations is a by-product reading thousands of wisdom books learning from thousands of wise men and keenly observing thousands of life situations. It is replete with intellectually stimulating analogies and quotes that will stick in your mind after you have put the book down. It's definitely not a one-time read, but surely warrants a meditative one. Every meditation is independent and complete. These meditations will provoke you to think about life in ways you would have never thought of.

Water is all over the air, but when air is subjected to the process of condensation, we get water. Similarly, ideas/ thoughts are all over, but when subjected to the process of contemplation, they become accessible to us. When a thought is held for a long duration of time and processed though the machinery of contemplation, then life sutras are produced. Open-eyed Meditation is a book of 'thought sutras' that can become 'life sutras'.

Read this book the way a cow eats grass while ruminating. Chew on every word carefully till you have milky lucidity that learn the art of meditation with your eyes wide open as you keenly observe the world around you and allow it to enlighten you.

Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
