In the belief that the practical suggestions given by the author will do much to relieve people of the tensions of modern life, this work is meant not only for those expressly suffering from mental tensions, but also for all of us who are swept up in this fast paced, high tech world that is devoid of any concern for human feelings.
There has long been a need for a work that establishes the all-round benefits of spiritual living, and this book fills that gap. It is like a beacon light that directs itself to all concerns of the mind, dispelling all our fears and anxieties.
It shows how spiritual values alone can bring peace and integrity to our life, and how a society bereft of spirituality will necessarily give rise to more asylums and correctional institutions. Even while dealing with modern struggles, the learned author has upheld traditional values.
Tension and stress are the two greatest threats to peace of mind I the modern world. From both a psychological and spiritual standpoint this book is a most valuable assist to serenity in the face of turbulence and anxiety.
