Book Overview

The Stuff of Life is an enriching treasury for anyone interested in an educated mind’s views on a variety of subjects that are important to our life’s thought process. The book attempts to see the problems of life in the light of human reasoning. Anyone reading this masterclass, in how to think freely and why, will notice not only its enormous sweep but also the author’s conscientious fairness.

The book presents a completely cosmopolitan outlook with a diverse influence and an expression borrowing freely from Western literature and philosophy and Oriental liturgy. The author has researched his subject matter deeply and his intelligence and reverence for life are clearly evident in his writing, and the overarching message of the book—to be a better person and transform human race—is beautiful and inspiring. He explores some of the doubts, fears, and perplexities humans experience in various life situations and illustrates how to find comfort and guidance in universal wisdom. His writing is honest and self-disclosing. Self-aware but never self-indulgent, the book provides an enriching view of one person’s intellectual voyage.
