This book, divided into three parts, presents the independent thoughts of distinguished scholars on the satiety of life, its various styles and meanings in reference to religion and scriptures vis-a-vis modern science.
The essays in the first part, based on the Shastras, try to explain the conception of life in Hindu, Buddhist, Jaina, Muslim and the Christian religions.
The second part aims to understand the subject of "Life" and also to explain its essence on the basis of the Upanishads, Gita and other Shastric and Puranic teachings. The writings focus on, among other things, the mystery of life and death, the regularity of life, the effect of music on life, and the calculation of life on the basis of astrology.
The third part (Modern Science) is a sincere attempt to understand life with a scientific approach. A logical explanation has been crafted on "dependence on each other in life" analyzing several literary references. This part discusses two aspects of life -- internal and external, life from a void to infinity, life being always out of bounds of time, life in a continuous flow of thoughts in Indian philosophy, etc.
This anthology tries to explain the mysteries of life from various angles and will prove to be benefical to the researchers and students of Indian culture.
