Every human being once in their lifetime would have asked themselves the question, ‘Why do I live? What is the purpose of my existence? What is the purpose of earning? Etc. There are also times when an individual thinks about the physics as to how he / she was created. The book The Aum of All Things authored by Ruzbeh N Bharucha answers all your questions.

In this book the author has made an earnest attempt to bring out the aspects of physics, Shastras, Vedas and astronomy and relate these to the day-to-day life. He has explained how we can bring peace and happiness within us and among others.

Ruzbeh has based his book on the philosophy of oneness and faith. Through this book, he gives out the message that one has to look beyond the obvious where just ‘oneness’ matters.

The book begins with the author’s meeting with Bapuji, the sage who has given a new meaning to his statements and arguments. The book is a candid conversation between Bapuji and the author. He describes the spiritual state as nothing but disenchantment of oneself from the worldly matters.

Bringing in the aspects of physics with a pinch of spirituality added to it, he says that every human being is made of five elements like earth, water, fire, wind and ether and the world we have seen is barely equivalent to the tip of the ice berg.

The author takes reference from Indian shastras like Vedas and Upanishads to prove his point.

However, he also writes about people’s food habits in general and the affect they have not only on health but also on our mind. He believes that people today are not pure and strong as they were centuries ago because their food habits have changed.

Their minds are sharp but their bodies are not agile. In his lesson on human existence on earth, he also explains why one faces unhappiness and misery.

He explains the process of attaining peace and eternal happiness by spreading selfless love for one and all. Lastly while describing death, he says that the word death is inappropriate to describe an individual’s journey to the other side.

The book makes the reader introspect his life and inspires him to adopt a new way of living. According to him, the only escape from attachment is knowledge. His philosophy on oneness shows that Ruzbeh has extensive knowledge about his subject. In this book, he also explains the cycle of Karma and says that meditation is very important.

The book can be re-read as it helps you to attain eternal and internal peace and happiness.
