The book is organized in a way that allows the reader to take their time, to savor the text. It opens the doors for a sense of spirituality that is not overwhelming or consuming, but instead light and surrounded with a sense of ease and peace to the scripture. The book leans heavily on the idea of keeping the lessons accessible and showing, rather than telling, that they are a way of life. You don't need to ascribe to it all, to sell your soul--you simply need to practice love and acceptance in your daily life and in all of your relationships. Reiterating, I think, what all religions mean to--we must always act in love.
An incredibly beautiful read, to be sure.
This book is a series of observations and commentaries by Hirok Das on the sutras (a collection of aphorisms, or general truths) written by Sage Narada. Rooted in Hinduism, Sage Narada’s truths focus more on finding and being aware of the Divine Source (God). There is plenty of instruction on how to achieve this through the practice of Bhakti Yoga.
I found the tone of the book easy to read and I enjoyed learning more about Hinduism and the focus on finding the Divine. God, in these scriptures, is less the kindly old man (or vengeful old man, depending on what you’re reading) and more a force of nature and an ideal to aspire to. The journey to spiritual enlightenment and making peace with this Divine Source, as presented by Sage Narada and further explained and enhanced by Hirok Das, was fascinating.
I recommend this to anyone who is seeking answers, and in these strange times, I suspect that might be quite a few people. Whether or not you follow Hinduism, the text is enlightening and will add value to your own beliefs, as well as perhaps make you think outside of your own world view. That, I believe, is something everyone could use a little more of. You never know what nuggets of truth you will find.
