Everyone is suffering - the rich, the poor, the young and the old. Everything in the world is perishing. There is nothing permanent. All pleasures are pithless and pain-ridden. Man is proud of his possessions and runs day and night after fleeting objects. If one has keenly observed all these, the following questions must naturally crop in the mind- * Who am I? * What is the nature of the world? * What is the purpose of human existence? Yoga Vasistha, a great treasure of knowledge and stories, gives us the solutions to all these questions. This text covers almost the entire philosophical thought of the Hindu culture. Swami Tejomayananda has written commentaries on many scriptural texts and has authored a number of books. He lectures extensively around the world introducing Vedanta to the public.
