Foreword

Savami Purna is a true living teacher who can explain in a real sense the profound spiritual tradition that has perennial and universal relevance for all of humanity. When we define teachers they usually fall into of the two categories, that is:

Those teachers who have information, theoretical and book knowledge, who have some achievement in life and recognition in the world through scholarly presence, yet do not practice what they teach; or

Those teachers who have attained great knowledge and wisdom though traditional spiritual and though the practice and implementation of the teaching in their lives, those who have live and continue to live according to the principles that they teach.

In this selection of discourses various key concepts for an approach to living-a technique to live- are explored. The discourses are based on their true Vedic and Sanskrit origin.
