Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Editor, Edith Tipple writes:

"I first had the opportunity to meet Pravrajika Vivekaprana in Santa Barbara in 1993. It was after her participation in the Parliament of the World’s Religions in Chicago. Her presence was inspiring and her no nonsense attitude intriguing...

"Listening to tapes of lectures given by Pravrajika Vivekaprana (in the United States), I became fascinated. Here was an approach so practical, clues to spiritual life so simple, that anyone could find strength for the arduous task of Self-realization. Her message cut through philosophy and belief...

"It was with great humility that I began to transcribe and edit these talks for publication...I am grateful to Pravrajika Vivekaprana and Sri Sarada Math for the confidence they have bestowed in allowing this publication.

Using examples too familiar to brush aside, Pravrajika Vivekaprana takes us on a journey. Not a journey of physical travel, but a journey of the mind as we are moved to examine the nature and basis of our preceptions.
For many of us this is a new experience. We have simply accepted our perceptions as they have been presented to us, with little or no awareness of our role in shaping/creating what we see. Realizing our role as creator, we discover, is an all important step along a path we each travel, the journey to Self-discovery.
The author brings the discoveries by the ancient seers of India before us, not as vague ideas to be believed, but as principles to be realized. This is a book for all to read, filled with seeming simple yet complex ideas which are bound to engage modern minds.

When I was flying for the airlines, I carried a favorite book with me to read on my many layovers. That book, The Tao of Physics by F. Capra, linked the Eastern spiritual philosophy with the new Physics of the 20th Century.
Now that I am retired, another book joins this one in explaining the link between spirituality and physics through the construct of space and time. Instead of a physicist writer, we have a nun explaining this Truth from her very deep understanding. A Challenge for Modern Minds has now become another favorite book.....Many thanks to Pravrajika Vivekaprana.
