The Soul

Understanding Our Real Identity

The Key to Spiritual Awakening

By Stephen Knapp (Sri Nandanandana dasa)

This book provides a summarization of the most essential spiritual knowledge that will give you the key to spiritual awakening. Using quotes from various Vedic texts, the descriptions will give you greater insights and a new look at who and what you really are as a spiritual being.

The idea that we are more than merely these material bodies is pervasive. It is established in every religion and spiritual path in this world. However, many religions only hint at the details of this knowledge, but if we look around we will find that practically the deepest and clearest descriptions of the soul and its characteristics are found in the ancient Vedic texts of India.

Herein you will find some of the most insightful spiritual knowledge and wisdom known to mankind. Some of the topics include:

* How you are more than your body

* The purpose of life

* Spiritual ignorance of the soul is the basis of illusion and suffering

* The path of spiritual realization

* How the soul is eternal

* The unbounded nature of the soul

* What is the Supersoul

* Attaining direct spiritual perception and experience of our real identity.

This book will give you a deeper look into the ancient wisdom of India’s Vedic, spiritual culture, and the means to recognize your real identity. This is excellent for a quick study, or as a gift for others who are interested in the spiritual teachings of the Vedic literature.

“Writing this book was such a kick for me because it brought me back to the early days when I first started studying this spiritual information, and to the books which first began to open my eyes. I would be upstairs in my room, reading and pondering away, going through so many internal changes and realizations. I felt like after all the previous religious studying I had done in Church and in the philosophies from around the world, I was now finally getting somewhere significant. I felt like I was finally being privileged to the secret knowledge that would open my eyes to reality, a level of perception that I had not found before. There is no doubt that it changed my life forever. And that is what I am hoping this book can provide for you.”
