In this paradoxical universe the pursuit to discover its mysteries is limitless. The more we know, the more humble we become in the face of what we don't and cannot know. There are innumerable ways and means for investigating and acquiring knowledge. Amongst these, there are disciplines of objective, experimentally verifiable sciences about which man naturally wants to know more and more. Why? How? Where? When? of everything -he keeps on wondering and inquiring about. It is this natural curiosity which has led man to acquire so much knowledge of the mundane and material world and erect an imposing and gigantic technological edifice of civilization and culture.

Human ingenuity, aided by experimental science and thought, continues pushing back the limits of the unknown. However, the mass of humanity, including the elites, knows pretty little about its own real self. We hardly ever think about knowing the reality of our own existence. If we remain ignorant about our own real identity, the course of life remains uncertain, fearful, and confused. Because of ignorance of one's real self, man is unable to think or act wisely and righteously. There is only one highway to true happiness and peace in life and that is Self-Knowledge. The present booklet is a humble attempt at "Exploration of the Self". Words or logic cannot fully explain the riddle of "Who am I?" The only way to know one's true identity is to explore the domains of consciousness within. An endeavor has been made in this booklet to guide the seeker to explore the reality of Self through specific disciplines of meditation and contemplation. It is hoped that it will be helpful to the genuine seekers of the Spirit.
