I was expecting introduction of the medieval era of philosophy with a scoop of positivism which apparently was not the scenario rather a subliminal drag on the inclination of other standing philosophies. The ideology of Averroes on single minded self is an unwarranted strike on the main stream thinkers. His statement that “All humans share a single mind” smells of Edmund Husserl principles of consciousness. But have to blow author had rushed up his points at the end of the book with attacks on how lopsided medieval philosophy had been. It is significant to get the right historical data irrespective of sidelining its prominence which is an irrevocable hiatus for overall educational and political growth.

Living with the Himalayan Masters by Swami Rama

The inquisitive attributes of Nachiketa are one of a kind and of a higher nature, so isn’t fathomable to all. Secondly, if pursued as an allegory, then continuous reflections are to be instigated for individual moral upliftment. Hence, the following statement explains it all and thankful to have introduced to this beautiful teaching of Kathoupanishad. “The consciousness of individuality is always searching and seeking to find the right combination to move towards the consciousness of unity”.

Huff and puff ensnare numerous cycles endures,

Realms of utterance blinds the happenstance,

Reverberates unseen command,

Shut off says the reprimand.

I wonder what is the true meaning of the word karma? Is it a juxtaposition of a good and bad things that happen? I heard about my dad’s brother being sick and hospitalized. Wonder if these things have a purpose to understand! He is an introvert in nature and do not have any bad habits but unfortunately diagnosed with liver cirrhosis.

What is the basis for these sufferings? I wish I knew the answers to these questions. All I hope is for a better future.
