Prema Ras Siddhanta
Every living being desires and seeks happiness. What is true happiness and how can it be attained? Unless we have the right answers to these vital questions, we will never attain true happiness. There have been many authorities on Hinduism who have written various books, based upon their experiences, which largely appear to contradict each other. Reading these texts, a reader cannot arrive at any decisive conclusion, and in fact can become even more confused. The remarkability of Prema Rasa Siddhanta is that it reconciles all these contradictory philosophies with such simplicity, clarity and perfection that the profoundest spiritual wisdom becomes accessible even to a layperson.
Besides quoting from the Vedas and other scriptures, Jagadguru Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj has used practical everyday examples in order to benefit people from all walks of life. The ease with which his directions are applicable to daily life is amazing.
Knowledge of the divine science is limitless, yet in this little book, Shri Maharaj Ji has revealed the subtlest aspects of subjects such as, ‘The Aim of Human Life’, ‘The Nature of God, the Soul and the World’, ‘Divine Grace’, ‘The Secret of Descension’ etc. with such simplicity that even the most ordinary person can understand them. It easily dispels all doubts that could possibly arise in the minds of spiritual aspirants. His lucid exposition of the Impersonal and Personal aspects of God and the mystery of descension is most unique, and he has laid special emphasis upon the science of karmayoga, because every individual soul has to pursue his goal of attaining divine bliss whilst performing all his worldly duties.
