Consciousness, Its Nature and Action Paperback
ISBN: 81-7059-392-1
Man’s consciousness has evolved to a point where it is capable of understanding its own nature, as well as the nature of life around it. We can also observe in ourselves that consciousness can be limited or extensive, superficial or deep, partial or total. But most of us are ignorant of its real capacity.
In this lecture, Mr N. Sri Ram, known for his deep understanding of philosophical questions, explores how consciousness loses its sensitivity and gets obscured, but has the potency of awakening into the full light of wisdom. He says: ‘we do not notice the beauty of a cloud or the movement of a leaf or bird and many other things. An artist is needed to paint a picture and point out the beauty.’
How can we achieve communion with the living beings around us, and even to a slight extent be open to the truth and beauty which are inherent and omnipresent in life? This book offers insights into how the quality of our consciousness can be transformed so that it is constantly renewed, remaining open to the truth of life as it reveals itself.
N. SRI RAM (1889-1973) was International President of the Theosophical Society for twenty years. He assisted Dr Annie Besant in editing her New India, a daily newspaper which was influential in the struggle for India’s freedom. He was also closely associated with her social, political and educational activities.
He brings to his writings a background of Eastern wisdom combined with a keen awareness of modern thought and knowledge, as well as a sensitive understanding of human problems. His special felicity of style enables him to convey profound ideas in a lucid and absorbing manner.
