World renowned leader at the core of the Maharishi Foundations, a Harvard graduate neuroscientist, renowned Vedic scholar and world reference in Transcendental Meditation, Dr.Tony Nader formulates in this book a series of fundamental existential questions (what is our purpose in life, do we have true control over our destinies?) and, through the study of Consciousness, brings us answers with practical benefits that aim to give us enlightenment, peace and fulfillment.
«In this landmark book, Dr. Tony Nader presents ideas that can change the world. He proposes profound solutions to questions that have long fascinated and intrigued philosophers and scientists. What is Consciousness, do we have freedom? How to get the best out of life, fulfill wishes and create peace and harmony among peoples and nations? He offers these solutions, based on a simple underlying paradigm, that unifies mind, body, and environment into an ocean of pure Being, Pure Consciousness. A must read for any seeker of answers to the mysteries of life, the absolute and ultimate truth».
«I want everyone to know what Consciousness is and how to develop it to enjoy the full potential of individual and social life».
Dr. Tony Nader
Is there some hidden purpose in life, a secret design, a meaningful logic, a goal to be achieved? Where do we come from and where do we go after we leave? Why should we be fighting? Can we choose? Are we free or slaves of destiny, of the laws of nature or of God?
As sentient beings who wish to take control of their lives, these questions are fundamental, and everyone ends up making assumptions or strongly subscribing to beliefs about many of them. Those convictions become our underlying "cosmovision" that influences everything we do.
I turned to the study of medicine, psychiatry, and neurology to understand why, although we are so similar, we can be so different in our opinions, mentality, and points of view. But the answers to my fundamental questions were too complex and abstract for scientific investigation. It was Transcendental Meditation TM that allowed me to explore them through direct experience, rather than analysis and deduction.
This book is dedicated to all seekers of knowledge, scientists, philosophers, teachers, wise leaders, and guides who investigate the secrets of how nature works and the effort to improve life on Earth.
Very clearly written, describes a new and fascinating way of understanding Consciousness
and life’s full potential. It’s also eminently practical. Dr. Nader is a genius !
Beautiful connection between the ancient science of consciousness and modern science
Having grown up in a family of scientists and studied physics myself, and later went on to study the science of consciousness, I find Dr. Nader’s examples, explanations and illustrations bring a smooth connection between current ideas of how the mind works and what is thought of as consciousness versus the more comprehensive and complete understanding of consciousness from ancient times.
Turning the Mind (Effortlessly)
Darwin would turn over in his grave to realize that human evolution’s secret ingredient is turning the mind back onto itself. ‘Ocean of Consciousness’ traces the evolutionary path from singularity of the Big Bang to infinite expansion realized in human awareness. And offers a timely way to not only avert dangers but to also shore up our current challenges in a way that nourishes all of humanity.
