书籍英文名：Belief and Beyond: Adventures in Consciousness from the Upanishads to Modern Times
书籍简介：Belief and Beyond delves into the realm of the mystic – Adi Sankara, Allama Prabhu, Kabir, Nagarjuna, Gaudapada, Akka Mahadevi, Lalleshwari, Anandamayi Ma, Ramakrishna Paramahamsa, Sri Aurobindo, Ramana Maharshi, Nisargadatta Maharaj, Jiddu Krishnamurti, U.G. Krishnamurti, and the Buddha – bringing to life their spiritual quests and the philosophical messages they left behind for humanity. The book explores the search for the non-dual state of being – sahaja sthithi or the natural state – which is not in the realm of experience at all, but a state of being where the borders and boundaries of the divided self have been transcended. The author also weaves in narratives from many difficult-to-access texts, including the Upanishads, the Ashtavakra Gita and the Avadhuta Gita. Written with depth and simplicity, this book is for the seeker and the curious alike.
