The book is a compilation of Mahendra Mathur’s answers given on website Quora over a period of approximately one year. What follow are two samples of those answers.
When and where do soldiers in an active war-zone sleep? From 6 to 23 September 1965 I took part in operations against Pakistan in Fazilka sector. I survived on a diet of dry food in my haversack, bullets flying over my head, and sleeping in trenches and bunkers. Perhaps some of the opposing forces might have complained that they were sleepless most of the time!
How can I strengthen my aura, mind, will power and start manifesting for success?
The fastest way is to go within, in meditation. Cast away all restless thoughts and remain without negative thoughts as long as possible. In due course of time – depending on the intensity and frequency of your meditation – your aura will become angel-like and you will be able to imbibe right knowledge easily. Success will come when your intentions are great and you work for their fulfillment with your heart and mind with full faith in attaining them. Never despair.
