Jnana is the greatest purifier. There is no salvation without knowledge. Jnana destroys ignorance, sorrow and stops the wheel of births and deaths. The book delineates the basic requirements, the path, the experiences at the staggering heights of expansion of awareness and the final culmination, i.e. Realization of the Self. The thoroughness of the subject coupled with the expressions of a realized master ingrained between the lines make the book an asset for all-beginners as well as advanced seekers.
