Beschreibung:

What happens when your ‘big dreams’ get fulfilled? Do you attain an enduring state of fulfilment? Are you then able to live happily ever after? Or, is there something vital missing that you need to address now?"When I pose these questions to the students at IIT, they feel uncomfortable," says Dr. Menon. "The majority are too heavily programmed," he adds. "There appears to be too much at stake in the ‘rat race’ of life and it takes considerable courage, even just to pause and reflect, especially when one has traveled far and got ahead in the race. There is little in their education to persuade them to think otherwise.""Is this the best our education can offer today?" asks Dr. Menon. "Are we not completely evading certain key issues in life? Are we not leaving the young generations ‘magnificently unprepared, for the long littleness of life’?"Drawing inspiration from various spiritual traditions, Dr. Menon guides the reader through nine graded chapters to the full meaning of ‘awareness’. He establishes that awakening and continual awareness of one’s ego-self not only bring freedom from mind-made suffering, but also enhance the quality of one’s work and one’s life.Printed Pages: 120.
