Human life is a journey of an individual, from suffering to relatively happy, and from a relatively happy towards the absolutely happy and safe.
By analyzing and understanding the true nature of an individual in the light of Vedanta, we can get rid of suffering and sorrow clinging to us. Self-knowledge determines our true well-being. If I understand the significance of self-knowledge, I find the key to being happy and safe at all times and everywhere, irrespective of objective conditions surrounding me.
This book dives into human personality. Not only does it show the connection of human suffering with its root, self-ignorance, but it also provides the means to gain self-knowledge. Once I understand the significance of self-knowledge, then I want it. Because self-knowledge is the subtle origin and resolution of all our thoughts, feelings, actions, and relations, the means of self-knowledge that train the mind are indispensable. The work describes how to transform our daily life of struggle into a sacred life of happiness and complete freedom.
