More details: It has 3 parts : 1). introductory covering the concepts of atman and Brahman 2). birth based on the law of karma moulded by the law of vasnas and the bondage to the cycle of birth-death-rebirth and the quest for liberation and 3). meditation as the means of salvation.

M. Narayana Menon
Being a scholar in Sanskrit, Narayana Menon could study Hindu scriptures and acquire an insight into our philosophy as expounded by ancient Sages of India. Discourses and commentaries on Bhagavad Gita and Upanishads by Swami Chinmayanandaji inspired him to take up spiritual activities and to practise the teachings in Yoga Sastras.
