It is the people who constitute the nation rather than the enchanting scenic beauty of a vast and varied piece of land. People reflect the true character of a nation. The country is powerful, if the people are strong and dynamic; civilized, if the people are cultured and wise, and vice versa. The strength and glory of a nation depends on the sum total of the character of each individual constituting the nation.
The cycle of birth, growth and finally death is common to all living beings. In this cycle, birth and death are beyond our control. But with regard to growth, by disciplined effort, we can achieve systematic development of our personality and attain fulfilment in life. We just need to learn the technique of developing our personality in a comprehensive way.
A comprehensive and powerful personality comprises five important elements, i.e. physical, emotional, intellectual, moral and spiritual. All these aspects are equally important to manifest the true and complete potential of a human being.
This book is a roadmap of learning the technique for transforming our personality. It helps in understanding: (a) the basic truth behind these aspects, (b) successful implementation in day-to-day life, and (c) the techniques to sustain the effects for a happy and meaningful life.
