I have become an ardent fan of Ashwin Sanghi books and completed 3 of his books from Bharat series within this month. His details to historical artifacts, folkloric and semantic is reverential to some of his works. The latest book trumpets on this count and have been bowled over again by the veracity of the content. By taking the true political scenarios such as doklam issues, foreign trades and adapting further is inspirational for the new creative writers in terms of content development. And this is what Ashwin has proposed in here and had given his best shot. I am proud to be a mere hawker of this great book. 😉

The real and unreal world,
tied in mathematical knot theory,
where the mind and intellect are poles apart but glued by the undivided thoughts,
brought in by the unblemished understanding of the nature of illusion,
like the triangle paradigm first takes an individual vulnerable soul in the world full of problems,
rely upon the absolute reality solution for its protective sheath on self,
where mere mortals suffer from the attachments of bondage and ignorance,
thenceforth the journey into god is a journey beyond time or space,
In me lies the source of experiential happiness ‘Satchitananda’ atman the epithet of pure bliss.

The three dimensional space,
with the universal key access the inner core,
resides beyond the withdrawal and changeable oscillation of thoughts,
hold the eternal bow and pull the wisdom arrow to target the knowledge of awareness,
where mindfulness is judged by the veracity of passing emotions,
through the dissolution of time and space,
trace the fifth dimension abodes,
which seamlessly flows in altered states of experience,
at the deepest level singularity reverberates with ever ending glory,
with the aim transfixed the trigger released and thence the self is enlightened forever.

If you are a travel mendicant with a flair on asceticism than you have picked the right book. Is this book about the recluse lifestyle and ethnographic lives of Hindu renouncer in India? Not exactly, but it covers a wide spectrum of solitary sages take on life. I found this book while fishing for ascetic Sadhvi (Women Hermit) but introduced to various Aghori (Post-Mortem Ritualist), Saiva Sadhus (Lord Shiva followers) and the ten Dasnami Akhar family (Community). As per its historical rendering the explanations on Kumbh Mela (pilgrimage) and the metaphorical topics invoke interest to explore the elixir of mortality. I cannot validate American Historian Wendy Doniger inputs on Hindu philosophy, but Hausner brought a subject which not many have attempted. The following statement is profound with hammering insights – “It is critically important to find the right kind of instruction and to surround ourselves with the right kind of people, in the right place and time”. Now, I am waiting for my turn to experience the immortal scion of the eternal soul.

The seeker and the sought phenomena,
is one of the universal mysteries,
where the waker and the dreamer theory intrigues,
allow to surpass all layers of the cosmic sheath,
offers an analogy on the clay and the pot,
rationale is put into action for its judiciary skills,
and then art of negation is applied,
as several superimposition runs the show,
the cause and effects are invariably true,
even to be toying of its stakes and mind-bending tales,
immortality is a hocus-pocus of mirage,
like the ‘knowing the unknown’ puzzles,
So be the experience’r experiencing the experiences,
the ever maker and the material oneness!

Breathe in the hold,

Focus on the expansion and contraction,

Check the impulse of eternal robustness,

While space discover within one self,

The ever presence omniscient existence,

Away from its reflected prefixes,

Pave ways for a peaceful banters,

Thus erodes the egoistical identity “I” in the flame of spiritual wisdom.

May be an image of text that says 'AÅvamedha The The Rite and its Logic Subhash Kak'

The potential of Ashwamedha sacrifice and its iconic ritual associated with the process are discussed in this book. Little background on the author, Subhash Kak works as a professor at Louisiana State University and exponent of Vedic philosophy. Well, here the rites are represented as a symbolic form rather than vague descriptions. Its connection between the transcendence of the sun and the king entwined by the lord’s source of energy. This further adds up the spiritual cause that stands apart in the ladder of consensus. Either way the scriptural connoisseur may find the reference solid and deviant according to their inquiry. But the explanation of the building of an altar and astronomical relations displays the amount of research done by the author and is highly laudable. From the setting of bricks on the altar to diagrams of sacrificial placement are finely depicted in this book. However, I do not wish to concise, every detail, as it will lose the charm of the book, but I can assure you that will keep you insightful. Not many have written about this unique Ashwamedha Yagna (A ritual sacrifice) but admirable for the author to have invested time to articulate the facts and deserves diligence for his valuable inputs. I truly appreciate and highly recommend this book.

Living with the Himalayan Masters by Swami Rama

I have come across this book on several occasions in the book shop’s but my interest was laid aside at that time. And here am trying to brood over missing such a rare commodity earlier. This runs as an upliftment memoir of an ascetic code of conduct, existence and its pursuance. From microcosmic to the macro level of spirituality is explained in the layman language. I find Swami Rama’s point of views pensively accompanied by his true quest for wisdom. 🙏

I do not know what made me to pick this book, but it reveals some amazing tips for mirror analysis of life. The metaphorical use of Nachiketa story is a masterstroke in this book of factual events. It is very common to hear from a spiritual or religious people of its wisdom, but uncommon to evaluate of their eminence in the subtlety of life. Let me divide my insights into two categories for a better comprehension. Firstly, if the interest is rhetorical then the questions raised by Nachiketa will be assured to convey the intended message to the right audience. 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”.
