The Power Of Illusion

Vijai S. Shankar (Author)
Synopsis 'Truth demonstrates itself every moment': such is the wisdom of a sage whose understanding is not the same as man's. His understanding of the illusory arises from what the mind thinks it sees, hears, tastes, smells, touches and thinks of life, whereas man's understanding of reality arises from what the mind thinks it sees, hears, tastes, smells, touches or thinks of life. The understanding of man feeds merely on the objects of the senses and on the offerings of the intellect, however sublime. Although this is no barrier in itself to total understanding, it is where the mind of man stops – but does not rest - for the mind has no inkling of what is beyond, of what it can never know. To man, knowledge is the great prize - the acme of scholars, the religious and the spiritualists. Ever eager to know, man binds himself more to ignorance, not realizing that in this world of duality knowledge and ignorance must co-exist, but only as an illusion. In 'The Power of Illusion', Dr Shankar reveals deep understanding of the power that brings forth and maintains this great illusion of knowledge and ignorance in its perfection. The illusion is no error from the eternal: it is its very essence, and the centrepiece of man's growth. Such is the wisdom shared here with all who study this book that, with patient observation, the understanding may arise that truth does indeed demonstrate itself every moment.

About the author

Vijai S. Shankar

An introduction always necessitates the name, qualifications, and achievements of that person being given, in the case of an author, titles of books published. These are the sine qua non for acceptability. They are the stuff upon which the ego is built and strengthened. His words and writings reveal life that is 'here' and 'now', the life that is enlightened and, above all, is already your own. Life expresses itself through every manifestation in the world, be it animate or inanimate, allowing to each its own illusory identity, which is a reflection of its intelligence. Thus thinking happens to man–his basic attribute; perception happens through senses–as thoughts; and a singular movement, which is a process of transformation of energy, as actions in the form of thoughts. The conviction 'I think', 'I speak', 'I do' escapes no man–albeit illusory and never real. The understanding that life is a reflection of light and sound and not physical in time and space is enlightenment.
