Vijai R. Subramaniyam
COURT HAPPINESS and shun misery. It is the same with
other beings also. This holds good for the common run
of mankind. But the higher order is bent upon right
conduct, enduring patiently the good or evil that it
may bring. Fellowship with these will be lasting, whereas
fellowship with ordinary people will not be. Good will
result to the world through fellowship with the higher
question then arises: "What is right?'' The point is
important, but the answer has not been found. Why? Because
what is right is determined by circumstances. However
comprehensive a work may be written on the subject,
there will always be circumstances not envisaged by
the author. Therefore it becomes necessary to realize
that state which will enable us to assess the various
conditions and determine what is right.
state is one only. There are no states like it. Although
it is single, it is extraordinary that the worldly wise
consider it exceedingly rare. Nothing can be more extraordinary
than this. That unique state is very clearly taught
in the Upanishads. In this book I have put down the
same truth according to my understanding. I have considered
it my duty. I do not claim originality. The six chapters
of this book are so closely interrelated that some point
which may be expected in one chapter may be found in
another. Again a few points which may not be clear on
a superficial reading will become clear upon closer
study. More may be gathered from major works or Sages.
Universal Mother, Master true, save us!
