Meditation has become an all-inclusive word in today’s time when going to hills for soul-searching is neither probable nor desired. At such times, open-eyed meditation becomes a very important concept which takes meditation from the realm of closedness to everyday living. Open-eyed Meditations is a compilation of meditations and thought-sutras that aims to provide practical wisdom for everyday living. Though many books have been penned with the same purpose, what differentiates Open-eyed Meditations from other such books is its constant drawing from and referring to the Indian epics – the Ramayana and the Mahabharata.
