Karma - The Mechanism ► Preliminaries ► How to Use This Book

Posted: 28.07.2014

It is recommended to read the book twice and to postpone all questions that might arise during the first reading. The text often introduces themes only briefly to return to them extensively later. A second reading then produces far deeper insight.

It is further recommended to try to locate the described mechanisms in our own life rather than to ponder how they might effect others, what others may think about them, or how much they would be able to understand. As long as we remain on this level of 'mere theoretical' understanding and avoid actively testing the mechanisms in our own life, the ancient manuscript will not reveal its hidden power.

'Text of the Sutras' lists the text of the ancient manuscript without accompanying commentary.

'Application' - the second part of the book - offers further information how to make practical use of this knowledge. This information is derived from other parts of the Tattvarthasutra, further ancient scriptures and practical experience.
