Book review: Spirituality A Road Map
There seems be a revival in spiritualism ever since the disciplinary knowledge has recognised the 'spiritual intelligence' as a component of multiple intelligences theory of learning. The book "Spirituality A Road Map" assumes a noteworthy contribution for pedagogues, therapists, seekers and lay persons who wish to gain insights into spirituality and integrate into their practice.

The book authored by Raj Bhagavathi, who had his education in pharmacy from a renowned Indian institute of higher education, has formatted the book in the form of FAQs and answers which he calls 'Spiritsules'  - the term coined to connate 'spiritual doses' in the form of  'capsule'  of ancient wisdom contained in the scriptures of the East.

The book published by Proman Associates LLP, has 245 one-page each 'Spiritsules'  to be read one at a time to be absorbed thoroughly as deep micro-learning nutrient. The format of book fit in the modern world which is now looking for micro, mini, nano and small bytes inputs to create deep effects. Complex and deep precepts and principles of spirituality have been described in a simple narrative for easy absorption and assimilation.

The Spiritsules are the form of What-Why-How answers that could be helpful to understand life, consciousness, spirit, super-consciousness, mind, senses, purpose of life as question and answers.

The messages in the form of tenets would guide our life with a purpose to seek, joy, bliss, calmness, equipoise even in the present competitive, fast and materialistic social and professional environment. The language is simple but striking to inspire the quest for discovering the meaning and purpose of life

This book seems be first book in English that encapsulate the teachings and philosophy of Indian scriptures and seers of the East to provide guidance on spiritual growth and get a feel of the Reality.  According to the author, the three axioms of spirituality are: God is the Truth; the world is unreal; and the individual soul is none other than the Universal Soul.

The book emphasises self-discovery and warns against 'traders-in-faith' and cautions the seekers not to 'fall prey to their ploy / plot' or 'addiction to cult philosophy.'

I find the book as a 'self-help book' that motivates you towards self-learning, self-reflection, self-improvement and self-realisation.
