This is the story of a man who had it all – looks, wealth, culture, fame, travel, career – and gave it all up to find for himself the answer to his burning question, "Is there actually anything like freedom, enlightenment, or liberation behind all the abstractions the religions have throw at us?" He never got an answer. The book introduces readers to the unknown truth of life.

I HAVE HEARD HIM SPEAK....I feel that,however much i like to, i have not been able to place him in a''slot'' as a philosopher or thinker or a dissenting crank, or a man with extraordinary experiences of his own that transcend barriers of artificiality, which he thinks is imposed upon mankind by false thinkers & conmen. his methodology of rejection of the entire gamut of human thinking & enterprise so far achieved by human endeavor is sheer waste of worthlessness. he vehemently denies the existence of human mind. thereby rejecting in a sweeping generalization the entire gamut of philosophical thinking of ages......well then what is it he believes in.? his answer to this question is that there is nothing to believe in the first place, because he says that human beings are so perfectly in tune with nature that there is nothing he need to know,nothing he need to think over, nothing that he need to look forward to, nothing he can achieve by intelligent debate, nothing he can improvise upon, nothing there is to render human life more livable...etc... he out rightly rejects the entire human enterprise as of no value to himself, since mind as such is a myth. he denies the existence of the human brain,....i do not know how on earth he acknowledges his own existence as a human being.? i am at a dead end with this man.SURYANARAYANA BEGUR, Rtd,BUREAUCRAT.
