This was quite an interesting read. It contains some good points on meditation, self-inquiry and clarifications on the teachings of Advaita (via Ramana Maharshi). The author was aquainted with other methods such as yoga and tantra, and had a host of gurus himself before becoming a teacher. I found the book to be a little too wordy in some areas, and the amount of writing took some effort to get through. However, there are some useful gems, especially in the area of self-inquiry and the process that AR presents in using self-inquiry. There are a few other useful everyday processes as well, such as mental clearing before going to sleep at time, which the author probably picked up during his self-improvement days. Overall, worth a read for those interested in the author, or self-inquiry.
Intended to help you clear things up and be in the process of life with "unshakable happiness as your natural state." It uses bible references often in order to get in touch with a christain reader. While this was not a connection point for me- it is understandable why the author does this.The book really drives in what "I am" can mean and how you can use that phrase to figure out what is going on in your life. Author tries to give advice on disrupting unwanted cycles of life. Was given to me as a good intention- to spread love and happiness. :)
