Few in this life escape stress and suffering. But what if the world were nothing but an illusion? Speaking joyfully from the intersection of science and spirituality, psychiatrist Akshya Vasudev introduces “bite-sized” wisdom from Vedanta, the ancient spiritual science of India. Expounded by sages more than 7,000 years ago, Vedanta teaches that our bodies, minds, and intellects are but tools to discover the infinite and limitless Self. In warm and intimate prose, Dr. Vasudev shares his personal story of learning to let go of expectations and developing a spiritual practice to fully experience what life has to offer. He shares intimate stories to suggest that right knowledge and its full application leads to awakening.
