The destiny of the human being is to travel on a path leading to perfection. The Upanishad says this spiritual path is like ‘the sharp edge of a razor, difficult to cross and hard to tread.’ A teacher or a guru may at best give a hint or indicate the direction of the path but the aspirant has to tread the path by himself. This little volume describes the nature of the path, the qualifications needed, and the pitfalls encountered. As the theosophical classic Light on the Path says: ‘Each man is to himself absolutely the way, the truth and the life. This book is an imprint of the Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar, and is imported from India.
