"We live in the outer world but prompted from our own within. Unless we master our inner lives, the outer scheme of life, however efficient and perfect, cannot but bring sorrow and unhappiness," says the author. Swami Chinmayananda, One of the greatest exponents of Vedanta in modern times, takes us through the thought process necessary to gain control of our inner world. He first shows us the logic behind meditation and then teaches us the specific techniques for applying meditative practice in our daily lives. When meditation becomes a natural part of our day, we find our lives transformed and our minds at peace.
