Dr. Kaushik's way to make sense of life does not use philosophy or techniques such as meditation. Instead, he perceives life with the curiosity and freshness of a scientist doing an experiment. To find the meaning of life, he says, we must turn to our own lives, and this requires an intense, sincere, and quiet mind. He applies these qualities as he considers freedom, faith, love, experience, spontaneity, and many other aspects of life.

About the Author:

DR. R. P. KAUSHIK was a philosopher in the original sense of the word - one who loves and discovers the truth. His work took him outside the framework of traditional thought, both intellectual and spiritual, beyond popular concepts and ideologies toward an ever-deepening care and affection for life. Dr. Kaushik was born in India in 1926. His search for understanding began early in life with the death of a friend. No intellectual approach offered a satisfactory answer, and it became clear that no experience - direct or indirect - could ever offer a total solution. Gradually all ideas and images dropped away and he was led to the discovery that reality can be understood only from moment to moment. He practiced medicine for 23 years until 1973, when he began meeting with people interested in exploring life deeply, without recourse to beliefs. He traveled around the world, speaking on meditation and spirituality, and authored six books. He died in 1981.

Review:

This book, written by Dr. Kaushik in 1973, is described on the cover as '...classic text from the American spiritual renaissance of the 1960s and 1970s' and has been brought to us afresh by Sentient Publications in their series of spiritual classics. Dr. Kaushik was a physician from the outskirts of New Delhi who began transformation in consciousness in childhood upon the death of a friend. In the preface, he informs us that the book is 'not the product of a well thought-out, logically coherent system or philosophy. It is the outcome of 'seeing' or perception from moment to moment.' He goes on to say that it is not teaching or advising, but rather thinking aloud, which you will hear when your ear and heart are open and your intellect at rest. He talks about (among other things) love and sex, the arts of observation and listening, freedom, time, the significance of life, and surrender. Personally, I found this book to be such an enjoyable read, more so than many of it’s kind, as the author writes from a balanced perspective with clarity and intelligence. His words are not steeped in vagueness nor mystification, so you are not left feeling puzzled nor inadequate.

I highly recommend this work—it is a slim inexpensive book, an ideal gift for anyone exploring truth and wisdom in spirituality, consciousness, awareness, and life itself.

Dr. Kaushik rather marvelously ends the preface with these words: 'For those who have no time to go through these pages patiently, the following synopsis can be given: See and listen but do not believe. Do not repeat what you do not understand. Be honest with yourself. With this honesty and simplicity in your heart, truth may knock at your door.'
(Christina Ince Issues Magazine)
