This book is a description of Nirvana and Nirvanic consciousness as experienced by the author Each section is the pen impression of the Nirvanic landscape just as it impressed itself upon me at that time writes Dr. Here is a remarkable passage:
Bathed in the lightning standing still which is Nirvana I Perceive the imprisoned lightning's in all things. I perceive the light which is dull in the savage; the Light which is bright-the man evolved; the Light which is glory- the superman the Master.
Practically the whole book was written either between 1 a.m. and 4 a.m. or between 4 a.m. and 6 a.m. on waking to physical consciousness after experiencing Nirvana.
C. W. Leadbeater describes the book as A very remarkable production a valiant attempt to describe the indescribable There is living fire in his words.
