Learning to Think Like Myself

Murali Sivaramakrishnan (Author)
There is definitely one point where both streams-the Indian schools of darsana and the western philosophical mainstream—merge and almost have a consensus-and that is at the fine point of self-reflexivity. The Upanishads in their cryptic language of poetic condensation speak of two birds on a tree-one eats the fruit while the other watches. This could be the purusha and the prakrti, or it could also be the soul or the divine element in the living being watching and witnessing while the other nature acts. This is the same self-reflexivity that leads the human being toward knowledge and the higher wisdom of sat-chit-ananda, the triad of existence-knowledge-bliss. This is the basis of all knowledge and all essential wisdom in the ultimate spiritual vision of action and inaction, of doing and being.

The essays in Learning to Think like Myself grapple with topics of current relevance ranging over politics, social issues, terrorism, poetry, philosophy, religion and spirituality, literary and artistic issues, and reach into the true meaning o deliberate living.

The author gently leads the reader from simple every day happenings and thoughts toward serious in-depth thinking and profound debates. The personal tone of these writings and the intimacy of treatment are certain to inspire and instill courage and commitment to life and living in the minds of readers of all ages and cultures. The topics range from motor bikes and cycles through science and religion; form fear and fantasy through abstract ideas. The wide-span of issues treated and the author’s intimate style is bound to be of interest to the inquiring young mind as well as to the inquisitive scholar and the general reader. These essays have all been previously published in a periodical of national repute and have been relished by a large readership.
