About the Author

After his matriculation, Guru Nitya left home as a wandering mendicant to familiarize himself with the land and people of his country of birth. He met great leaders like Mahatma Gandhi and poets of high repute and sat at the feet of several spiritual masters, including Sufi fakirs, Jain munis, and Buddhist monks, and Hindu teachers such as Ramana Maharshi and Nityananda. In 1947 he joined the University College, Alwaye, Kerala to continue his academic studies. After specializing in philosophy and psychology, he taught these subjects in Indian universities. In 1951, he accepted Nataraja Guru - founder and head of the Narayana Gurukula - as his spiritual preceptor. In 1973 he followed him as head and Guru of the Gurukula, a world community of spiritual seekers. Between 1970 and 1980 he taught courses in psychology, philosophy, yoga, and aesthetics at universities in the US and other countries. He also was the chairperson of the East-West University of Unitive Sciences and the Commissioner for World Education.

Guru Nitya published over 120 books in Malayalam and 80 books in English, as well as countless articles on philosophy, psychology, social ethics, and aesthetics. His writings combine rare insight and profound wisdom with an ability to communicate in terms readily understood by students everywhere.

Format: Hardcover
That Alone is a book that blows peoples’ minds in the best possible way. It is an exposition of Narayana Guru’s modern Upanishad, the One Hundred Verses of Instruction on the Self, which makes a convincing case for numerous intelligent perspectives leading to true self-transformation. Nitya has a rare knack for explaining profound spiritual truths in not just an excitingly accessible manner laced with humor, but with careful consideration of the knowledge of science and philosophy as well. No belief is required, other than that an open mind, well directed, is the best tool we have for crafting an interesting and rewarding life. This is an ideal study for those who are serious in discovering more about themselves and their universe, and aren’t just looking for someone else to spell out their destiny for them. At the end of each chapter you reel with the intense impact of the guru's vision raising you out of deadening habit patterns.
