The book attempts to convey the profound truths of Advaita Vedanta through poems. Advaita Vedanta, the non-dual school of philosophy of Sanatana Dharma, the culmination of Indian philosophical thought of 5000 years. The fountain head of the philosophy is the Upanishads or teachings that occur at the end of the Vedas. However, the teaching in this tradition, using the Upanishads as the base, but has many Granthas (explanatory texts) and insightful commentaries. Great sages beginning with Adi Sankara (A.D. 1400) and his disciples and later saints have added a wealth of literature in prose and poetry to expound the truths mainly in Samskrutam. The unique characteristic of Advaita Vedanta is that it uses methodologies passed on from Guru to Shishya in an unbroken tradition. Understanding the profound truths expounded in this teaching requires a Guru who dedicates himself to this teaching after himself being a long-standing Sishya and then having been initiated into Sanyasa. The committed Shisya then internalizes the teachings through a process of Sravana and Manana (active listening and mindful questioning to dispel doubts) of what was taught by the Guru and its relevance in his or her personal experience and then contemplation called Nidhidhyasana which is a 24/7 contemplation on the truth until it becomes living reality for the Shishya.
