CD 1: Between the Islands of the Sun and the Moon
“Tathagata” deals with central questions of existence like the meaning of life, life after death and the way to overcome grief and suffering in a world full of torments and turmoils. It seeks to provide understanding of the issues related to religions, and their relations to mythologies and the epics of the world. The audio book will take the listeners in a journey through different realms of the inner world, which manifests as reality of life projected by our mind. The journey passes through many realms beginning with the tumultuous world of the instinct-bound women and men and the war-heroes. Then it crosses the creative sphere of the poets, musicians and artists, and the contemplative world of the philosophers and rational intellectual realm of the scientists. Finally the journey leads to the spiritual domian of the mystics and the saints and the “Mountain Path”, where human mind may connect to the cosmic consciousness which pervades all.
The book begins with the human aspirations to overcome death and attain immortality and find the realm of beauty and love of never ceasing happiness.
The book consists of 20 CDs.
