Life is transient. Every one of us has to go through ups and downs in life.
None of us can say that we have a perfect life, devoid of sorrows.
The moment we see someone getting something that we had long desired, we get covered by a veil of unhappiness.
It seems that happiness is the secret medicine with the potential to cure all the agonies of life.
Happiness is subjective; it differs from person to person.
In such times all that we need is a torchbearer for guiding us on the pursuit of this secret medicine.
The author shows us the path to connect with our inner-selves and helps us liberate our minds, taking us on an elevated level of mental and physical awareness.
The book written in lucid language with easy-to-understand examples in each chapter has been divided into four parts with four chapters in every part.
As you read the first part, the first realm conquering our inner selves is achieved.
It teaches us that only selfless service can make us look at the world differently.
In part two, the author makes us understand that even one person can make a huge difference in this world of ours, it teaches us that first, we have to give before expecting anything in return.
