National, October 3rd, 2022: One of the most acclaimed teachers of spiritual awakening in today’s world, Acharya Prashant, unveils his latest book – ‘Maya – I Bow to Thee, You Cannot be Overcome’. Published by Jaico, the book challenges readers to have the courage to let go of their old beliefs and to pay the price for an authentic life, and to love the unvarnished truth.
Acharya Prashant guides us toward a genuine understanding of Maya as she manifests in our daily lives at a time when much neo-spirituality is just about tools for a different kind of entertainment. What distinguishes this work from others is the use of common metaphor and timeless wisdom in a modern setting.
When you truly understand how everything in your mind is an illusion (Maya), and how Maya will never stop pursuing you as long as you are attached to a physical body, that in and of itself brings peace. One then gives up the pursuit and savors the tension. Every chapter of this book is based on audience members’ interactions with Acharya Prashant. The readers gain a valuable kaleidoscopic perspective as they explore the variety of human conditions, misunderstandings, and inquiries.
Commenting on the launch of his latest book, acclaimed Vedanta Teacher & Bestselling Author, Acharya Prashant said, “My interactions with audiences for over a decade inspired me to write this book as people need to understand the commonly used, but misunderstood spiritual term “Maya”. The reader of this book would have a scientific understanding of Maya, which is anything that compulsively permeates our mental space and occupies our consciousness.”
Akash Shah, Publisher at Jaico Publishing House, said “Acharya Prashant is a leading authority on Vedanta, guiding millions of people to our timeless Vedantic wisdom. People struggle to understand Maya because, by definition, she is elusive. Acharya ji clarifies the significance of Maya in our lives through this book. It gives us great pleasure to publish Maya.”
Acharya Prashant’s fearless message has improved the lives of people, animals, and earth itself with his books. He has authored over 100 books on important subjects such as Joy, Love, and Marriage to commentaries on the Scriptures, including his national bestseller, ‘Karma- Why Everything You Know About It Is Wrong’. Recently, more than six of his books have been listed as bestsellers on Amazon.
