The Science of Self Realization
In the human form of life, there is the special opportunity to be able to study and understand spiritual and philosophical truths. An animal, by its nature, does not have this facility. It is imperative for a human being to rise above the animal propensities of eating, sleeping, mating, and defending and to embark on spiritual pursuits that will be to the eternal benefit of the soul.
The Science of Self Realization is a compilation of some of Śrīla Prabhupāda’s essays, poems, public presentations, letters, and conversations that cover a wide variety of topics in relation to the science of how to attain the perfection of life, including some very honoring and respectful discussions about Jesus Christ. The practice of spiritual life is scientific, non-denominational, and very practical, and also includes very deep emotions and personal examination. It is not sentimental, and the process is passed down through the ages via a succession of realized teachers. There is no concoction, yet the science is perfectly adaptable to any person, culture, or time period, as demonstrated in this volume. This book not only addresses many topics pertaining to the process of devotional service, it also hints of the personal challenges and contemplations of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupāda, a pure representative of Lord Śrī Kṛṣṇa, as he moved into his active preaching mission in the Western world. For a human being who is ready to embrace the special gifts of understanding that this most valuable form of life grants, this book will be a refreshing and enlightening blessing.
