Description
Back of the Book

This wonderful pair of books by Swami Rajarshi Muni will be much welcomed, for, with the simple directness and lucidity which are a hallmark of his works, they address the existential dilemmas that have plagued humans since the beginning of time. The first deals with the question of existence, its purpose, and how best that purpose may be achieved. Towards that end, it explains the place of humans among living beings and, in that context, the special significance of the human body and mind. It examines the matter of body and mind as instruments of action, and action as cause of consequence on both the mundane and moral planes within the framework of finite and infinite Time. All this finds resolution on a foundation of a moral law that operates on many layers from the macrocosmic universe to the microcosmic individual. Finally, it suggests the way out of the various dilemmas by charting out the way of the ideal human life appropriate and conducive to happiness in this and the next world, in this and future lives. The ideal way proposed is that delineated in the Eternal Dharma that is at the root of Indian Culture.

The second of the pair powerfully reinforces the message of the first by definitively addressing the question of infinite Time, so that the matter of duration of consequence of action as reflecting the moral choices one makes becomes overwhelmingly clear and one is compellingly guided to ponder and choose wisely.

About the Author

Swami Rajarshi Muni was born on 11th February, 1931, in Porbandar, in western Gujarat, in the princely lineage of the Jadeja rules of Kutch. He received sannyas initiation in February 1971 and thereafter devoted himself almost exclusively to secluded Yoga sadhana of the khechari mudra expounded and practiced in the modern spiritual tradition of Lord Lakulish, twenty-eight incarnation of Lord Shiv, in which he is the present spiritual head. In 1993, in response to a spiritual calling, he temporarily interrupted his self-imposed seclusion undertake a worldwide campaign to spread the knowledge of Yoga and the moral, cultural spiritual values of the Sanatan (eternal) Indian heritage. He resumed secluded sadhana in 2007 to complete his Yoga and establish the authenticity of the principle of the indestructible Divine Body, on which he has written with profound clarity and authority based on personal practice experience. He is an advanced yogi, a realized Master in the classic mould of Indian adepts, knower of the kundalini and master of the khechari mudra. The extraordinary heights he attained in his Yoga practice establish him firmly as the latest addition to the lineage of perfected masters which has long embellished the Indian spiritual tradition.
