I am always in search of books in this genre as I want to improve myself and I never get tired reading these books .When I came to know that I am selected for giving my honest review to this book I felt myself in the seventh heaven.
Since I am a health freak I use to learn about yoga and meditation. When I have received the book the "Open Eyed Meditations practical wisdom for everyday life, I take the literal meaning and I prepare myself to study the methods and practical tips on doing meditation with my eyes opened. On going through the book only I have realized my mistake and the author has meant wise principles of life by calling them meditations.
I have felt fascinated by the splendid ideas given in the book for my progress and solving my problems.Each and every word in the book brings me to a newer world and fresh experience.The pearls of wisdom displayed in the book have enlightened me on several facets of life . This book has awakened me in several senses and I have changed a lot in my thinking pattern and my interaction with others.
