A book that delves into the concepts of consciousness, reality, space, and time from a Vendantic perspective chronicles a woman’s journey for love and truth. As the story unfolds, it takes the reader on a journey of self-exploration, discovery, and development.
Somewhere Among the Stars was released last year and is being formally launched at JLF 2023 this year. A woman’s inner quest for love and truth across lifetimes and dimensions is an adventure of consciousness through the rare terrains of Vedanta and Yoga.
Adi Varuni writes on Indian spirituality and mysticism and lives incognito. Decades ago, when an unknown Norwegian teacher wove nuggets of philosophy into a mystery, it gave birth to the all-time bestseller Sophie’s World, in which Sophie, all of 14, returns from school one day to find two letters, each with a question—’Who am I?’ and ‘Where does the earth come from?’ Sophie felt her brain stirring as she contemplated philosophy.
Adi feels his soul stirring as he contemplates Vedanta. Falling in love with the elderly and serene Ahana, a voice in his head compels him to write Ahana’s story, bringing alive fascinating dimensions of Vedantic mysticism. Adi is spellbound and restless to understand Krishna’s answers to Ahana’s questions.
When it suddenly falls into place for Adi that it was Ahana who had brought him to Almora and to Vedanta, and that he has veiled memories of her from past lives, he knows he has to go back and ask her one last time.
As Ahana gradually absorbs into silence, this Sophie’s World meets Vedanta mesmerizes you with its depth. If there ever was a beautiful, simple story to introduce Vedanta and explain our existence, then this is it.
