‘“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.”
Life is a Mystery, and we human beings are as mysterious as this very existence is. As such, any attempt to demystify life or existence is bound to fail. It must fail.
This book does not attempt to demystify the Mysterious. This is, rather, a celebration of the Mystery, of The Mysterious.
I invite you, my dear friends, to walk this Path of Mystery, this Path to The Mysterious. I consider myself truly blessed if you accept my invitation and through the pages of this book walk some distance with me. …
Namaskar, I bow to the Divine within each one of You.
“Who knows what is the Truth
or who may here declare it?
What is the proper path
that leads to the place of Divine Forces?
Only their inferior abiding places are perceived,
not those which are situated in
superior mysterious locations.”
(Anand Krishna, A Handful of Gems from The Holy Vedas)’
