About Author Sirshree's Introduction Sirshreeâs spiritual quest, which began during his childhood, led him on a journey through various schools of thought and meditation practices. The overpowering desire to attain the truth made him relinquish his teaching job. After a long period of contemplation, his spiritual quest ended with the attainment of the ultimate truth. Sirshree says, âAll paths that lead to the truth begin differently, but end in the same wayâwith understanding. Understanding is the whole thing. Listening to this understanding is enough to attain the truth.â To disseminate this understanding, Sirshree devised Tejgyanâa unique system for wisdomâthat helps one to progress from self-help to self-realization. He has delivered more than a thousand discourses and written over fifty books. His books have been translated in more than ten languages and published by leading publishers such as Penguin Books, Hay House Publishers, Jaico Books, etc. Sirshreeâs retreats have transformed the lives of millions and his teachings have inspired various social initiatives for raising global consciousness.
