IN SEARCH OF OUR WONDERFUL WORDS

Free sample

"The societies can never be creative. The battle to create wisdom for his benefit the man has to fight alone. However, this is only a powerful hypothesis based on the history of mankind, which needs not only pondering over, but also experimentation and investigation for its future use.
Even if the man is able to create the wisdom, often, nothing changes. A wisdom that is idle is like a currency that is not in circulation. What do we do with all the wisdom that exists in our scriptures? 
Even if we leave aside our scriptures for whatever reasons, do we seriously try to mould our conduct according to the wisdom we ourselves might have created with a view to verifying its workability? Perhaps, we never did it. There is no element of ‘wonder’ in our relationship with our surroundings. Maybe, we have to infuse the element of wonder in our relationship with the societies we are a part of.
If we had ever tried to conduct ourselves according to the wisdom available from wherever, we would have felt the dire need to seek support of fellow human beings in our efforts to verify the usefulness of wisdom for the mankind. The history of the mankind has proved that the wisdom always percolates down the layers of the humanity to refine itself through the individual efforts of many. Whenever the need of collective efforts surfaces; the need of wonderful words appears."

About the author

Promod speaks very little; and virtually nothing about himself. Being an engineer by qualification, he enjoys experimenting with whatever he does. At the age of 65 now, he studies scriptures, teaches physics and experiments with education. He says, “Making use of one’s intellect for exploration, analysis and drawing inferences is fine; but, conclusions must come from the heart.”

After “Mahatma: A Scientist of the Intuitively Obvious”, this is his second book.

In order to come to your senses, Alan Watts often said, you sometimes need to go out of your mind. Perhaps more than any other teacher in the West, this celebrated author, former Anglican priest, and self-described spiritual entertainer was responsible for igniting the passion of countless wisdom seekers to the spiritual and philosophical delights of India, China, and Japan.
 
With Out of Your Mind, you are invited to immerse yourself in six of this legendary thinker's most engaging teachings on how to break through the limits of the rational mind and expand your awareness and appreciation for the great game unfolding all around us. Distilled from Alan Watts’s pinnacle lectures, Out of Your Mind brings you an inspiring new resource that captures the true scope of this brilliant teacher in action.
 
For those both new and familiar with Watts, this book invites us to delve into his favorite pathways out of the trap of conventional awareness, including:
 
• The art of the “controlled accident”—what happens when you stop taking your life so seriously and start enjoying it with complete sincerity
 
• How we come to believe “the myth of myself”—that we are skin-encapsulated egos separate from the world around us—and how to transcend that illusion
 
• Why we must fully embrace chaos and the void to find our deepest purpose
 
• Unconventional and refreshing insights into the deeper principles of Buddhism, Hinduism, Western philosophy, Christianity, and much more
