By: Vijay K Jain

This profound treatise leads the reader to the path to liberation. The path consists in right faith, right knowledge and right conduct, together.

The term ‘knowledge’ is to be taken with each kind mentioned in the sūtra – sensory knowledge, scriptural knowledge, clairvoyant knowledge, telepathic knowledge and perfect knowledge (omniscience). That which reflects on the objects-of-knowledge through the senses and the mind, or that through which the objects-of-knowledge are reflected upon, or just reflection, is sensory knowledge.

By: Vijay K. Jain; Vijay K. Jain

The book emphasizes that the body and the soul are utterly different; we tend to pay attention to the body at the expense of the soul.

The one who entertains delusion that the body and the like are but the soul is the extroverted-soul (bahirātmā), the one who entertains no delusion about mental states – imperfections like attachment and aversion, and the soul-nature – is the introverted-soul (antarātmā), and the one who is utterly pure and rid of all karmic dirt is the pure-soul (paramātmā).
