You are already complete in nature.
Meditation helps you reminds your god like qualities.
Everything you seek are already within you,Money,Love.etc.
What we outside is a reflection of our innate mind.

Truth can't subject to change.
Meditation is a force,it is a state of being.
It provides us the supreme alertness.
Meditation is not an activity or exercise.

The 3 instruments of knowledge:
Instinct,Reasoning,Inspiration

Inspiration is a way of Life.

We have to indulge in activities which helps us to stay alert.
We need to do the preferable instead of pleasurable.

That one thing is the Purusha(Soul),the ultimate truth which is dwelling in each one of us.
Mediatation helps us to find this one thing.


Story of Nachiketa:

Chapter 4 of the book narrates the story of Nachiketa who conquered death.
When he met the king of death 'Yama',he asked for 3 boons.
The 3rd boon he asked was the secret everyone curious to know,what is happening after death.

Initially, Yama was very resistant as he never shared this secret with anyone.
But as Nachiketa insisted,he went on to explain the secret.
He explained about the Prakarti(cosmic intelligence) and the properties of 'I Consciousness(Pravartti)'.
He went on to explain the concept of Time.
He was telling Nachiketa about Purusha(God or Soul) which is eternal and Timeless.

Through Yama's words,we are getting to know about 'the Cycle of the Universe'.

The short stories are really eye opening,especially the Sage who meets the Housewife and the Butcher.

The explanation about 'The Law of Karma - the law of cause and effect is simple and excellent'.

Then comes the Law of Non-Attachment which conveys the words of Bhagavan Krishna,
who said 'Do your work and don't expect the fruits'.

There are wonderful exercises teaching you to meditate and to know that one thing.
