Overview

This supplementary book is a 'gift' for those who are curious to know all the wisdom elucidated in the book INVOKING THE SELF. This book, for your reading, contains twenty six noblest practices which are essential for your fulfilled life. Be it a householder, renounced saint, monarch or a monk, all people must invariably reach the same supreme perfection of life. Human life is not for God, but it is God who is for human life. We live for ourselves, so as to say for our own beneficence first; and God is merely one of the ways we live; perhaps the best one.

But what is so 'best' about it? Well, that's quite a tricky question. In terms of providential principles about supreme life, you cannot know unless you experience them; and you cannot experience unless you know them. Before this quandary loops on you, better start with 'knowing' first; though with a precaution. Before you can activate such principles into your life, you will prefer to have the most authentic 'source' of the preached words. Secondly, and most importantly, you'll like to refer to the most accurate 'interpretation' of such words.

Here comes the answer to your first concern; i.e. the most authentic 'source'. The first three verses of Chapter no. sixteen of Bhagavad Gita preach every human being to observe the following twenty six noblest life-practices; so that God becomes existing in our human ways. And to your second concern, regarding the most accurate interpretation, this book serves as a guide wonderfully. Even though the given interpretations, to all twenty six, in this book are concise, yet those are most useful for the curious minds.

The aforementioned principles are:

1. Absence of Self-Conceit
2. Cleanliness
3. Disinclination Towards Fault-Finding
4. Fearlessness
5. Forgiveness
6. Fortitude
7. Freedom from Anger
8. Freedom from Malice
9. Gentleness
10. Harmlessness
11. Kindness to All
12. Modesty
13. Non-Covetousness
14. Performance of Sacred Rites
15. Perseverance in the Acquisition of Wisdom
16. Purity of Heart
17. Radiance of Character
18. Renunciation
19. Sattwic Charity
20. Self-Discipline
21. Self-Restraint
22. Steadfastness of Purpose
23. Straightforwardness
24. Study of the Scriptures
25. Tranquility
26. Truthfulness

Being part of the original book 'INVOKING THE SELF', I pray this small book adds goodness to your days and times. Amen.
