The author puts forward some of the principles such as discipline andlearning, inner awakening, alertness, freedom, self-realization, unificationand consciousness etc. as necessary ingredients for invoking of absolute
being. What is required is the awakening of one’s inner self. Awakening of
to author is, “key in meditation. One need not talk about

yoga, the work covers a wide path. The nature of subject matter has made itnecessary to treat the scientific and spiritual together. Many people rejectthe mediation and its philosophy as inhuman and selfish because theyconsider it as a cold, deliberate shunning of every body and everything for
the sake of working out one’s own salvation. But the truth is exactly
opposite. However, those who are not sure that revelations obtained throughSamadhi are genuine revelations or not some form of delusion to such mindsthe analysis in this work would appear to be devoid of historicity and attimes logic.
