How the Human Mind Can Sense the Consciousness Force
How did the saints achieve enlightenment? Why can’t I? These are interesting questions. But the answers are not that obvious. This book, Sensing the Essence, addresses these questions by examining the convergence of Vedic scriptural teachings, discoveries in modern science, and saintly experiences. By focusing on the Consciousness force as the substratum responsible for the creation and sustenance of the universe, and on the capability of the human mind to directly sense the Consciousness Force, this work describes the physical mechanism responsible for the enlightenment experienced after practicing scriptural teachings. By presenting important findings in a simple way for non-experts to understand the subject matter, the author makes readers better appreciate the wonderful opportunity endowed upon them to achieve the ultimate goal of salvation in life, and then benefit from the information encapsulated in this book in their spiritual journey.
