This book is great, growing up in India I have dots of spirutual knowledge, this knowledge was scatterred everywhere as I am staying in the UK and overseas for many years, this book just puts all these dots together.
It gives great examples and comparasions of difference between Atma and the body, need to seperate desires from action. Reading this book I can co-relate that I am living a life driven by desires, desire for a weekend, desire for a holiday, desire for a car,desire for a meal in a great restaurant, once the desire is fulfilled it is replaced by a new one. As the book explains clearly how this is an "endless pit" and the need to for us to detatch from the desires and avoid falling into this "endless pit".
It also focusses on desire to eat food just for taste, this is cause of world obesity and millions of people eating more than they should and at the same time cause of children and families dying due to the fact they do not have enough food. God says food is given to us as a sacrifice i.e food comes from vegetation, vegetation comes from rain, rain is a sacrifice by they skies (it comes free not generated by humans). So we should eat keeping this sacrifice in mind eat modestly not greedily, think about people who do not have meal on the table, and do not waste food.
Many other concepts are explained with great examples.
Very nice to read this book but very difficult to implement in real life. even if you implement 5% of it, it is great.
