‘THE EYE OF THE UNIVERSE’ ….. In a torrential rain, someone stood on a flooded road and tried to stop the vehicles. No-one stopped. At last someone stopped, and asked with a frown: “What do you want?” “Don’t proceed; the bridge ahead is washed off” was the reply. The mission of this book is infinitely more serious than this; it tries to save humanity from its eternal suicidal drift in the cycle of births and deaths.
Michael Newton’s ‘JOURNEY OF SOULS’ introduces you to your eternal existence as a limited entity -- ‘the soul’ (jeeva), living through countless births and deaths. Whereas, this book – ‘THE EYE OF THE UNIVERSE’ – introduces you to your Reality as the single eternal entity, birthless and deathless, unchallenged by anything, facing no threat from anywhere, not under the watchful eye of any super-being, not governed by anyone ….standing on your own foundation …as Awareness, Consciousness, Cosmic Consciousness (Brahmam). You are the seer of the world – the eye of the world; you lend reality to the world by cognizing the existence of the world. You are AWARENESS eternal…. a far greater reality than the universe.
The whole world is flooded with spiritual pauperity and the consequent hardening of attitudes. Nothing worthwhile is seen anywhere, with the exception of some Upanishads. And whatever brilliant guidance offered by these Upanishads are also misinterpreted by teachers steeped in misconceptions …with hopeless incapacity to see the reality. ‘ THE EYE OF THE UNIVERSE’ holds out a hope to humanity in this situation. Its vision is clear …nothing ambiguous. It sees the Upanishads in their correct light. Have a look …and see how the Four Great Sayings (mahavakya-s) become easily acceptable even to the sharpest of intellects, looked from the stand-point of this book. It doesn’t call for any belief; it is tangible …can be touched, felt, experienced. Truths can be many, for those who grope in darkness; but when you see things in broad day-light truth can be only one. Place YOUR OWN AWARENESS in the place of the SUPER POWER presented to you so far …and see how well it fits!
This book does a few things:-
** This book looks at the Upanishads with a clearer vision and establishes some acceptable theories; while shaking up some questionable beliefs.
** Your own awareness is Brahmam – nothing different, nothing separate, nothing bigger or smaller – just the same. This book makes this clear with the help of Upanishads and with the words used in the Brahmavidya meditation.
** When you try to understand the Great Saying ‘Aham Brahmasmi’ (I am Brahmam), you stumble on a mis-match. The age-old belief that Brahmam is omnicient and omnipotent comes in the way. THE EYE OF THE UNIVERSE clears this block, with the help of Upanishads.
** Upanishads guarantee you an unequalled fearlessness. This book clearly explains it – intelligibly. When you come to know that you are really deathless and eternal, you become absolutely fearless. God Death salutes you from a respectful distance. What can death do to eternal awareness?
** With the help of Upanishads, relieves Brahmam of the ‘omnipotence and omniscience’ imposed on it – and helps you understand It as clean awareness.
**` Then there will be absolutely no difficulty in understanding that this Awareness and the awareness in each one of us is just the same.
** Solidifies in your mind that this Awareness (your awareness) is eternal.
** Helps you undertand that, though seemingly mixed-up with the universe (and your body), Brahmam (your Awareness) is not really mixed up; it is clean, free, eternal.
This is a post-graduate text in spirituality …; it is an effective guide (guru) to lead you along the proper path …. ultimately to Liberation …Mukthi …Realisation … getting rid of the cycle of births and deaths.
