Book On Anvil: abhyAsa (Practice)

I started working on my tenth book yesterday. It is called abhyasa. It is a book that has my thoughts and experiences in it, but also leaves some space for your thoughts and experiences.

Sot its not a 5″ by 7″ book. But a 7″ by 9″ book.


New Book: Soliloquies – Of A Reluctant Householder

When learning a subject, some people just get the theorem directly. Some people like to have a lot of worked examples. And some people like to be trained in solving those examples.

A highly evolved spiritual aspirant can hear ‘tat tvam asi’ and get it in a second. Like Janaka, Ashtavakra, Sankaracharya and that level of people.

Then, there is the layer who wants the worked examples. In my college days, I used to read the theorems and do all the problems on my own. Then I used to show some of my friends, hostel-mates etc how to do the problems. And of course as a professor in college, I used to make my students work out the problems in the class and the lab.

This book Soliloquies – Of A Reluctant Householder, shows how different worldly problems may be approached, even if your head and heart lean to the spiritual side of things. It is more like a set of worked examples. Most of these ideas appeared as blog posts on Ancient Indians in 2011-2012.

You may purchase the ebook directly from me by paypal/NEFT/MO, or wait for the ebook and print book to become available on shortly.

This book may be considered a sequel to the book Un-Cluttering My Life.

When the son of a celestial is raised by the wife of a charioteer.

What goes on in the mind of an ordinary mother raising such an exceptional son?

This short e-story explores Radha’s thoughts and feelings as she witnesses and accepts Karna’s choices and struggles. And has some notes regarding Adhiratha’s (Karna’s foster father’s) lineage at the end of the book.

It is 51 pages long. Page size 5″ by 7″.

I have submitted this to pothi today and will shortly submit the cover for the print book also.

It may interest people who love Karna, and have the same sort of concerns about him that his adoptive mother Radha did!
