We are not these mortal bodies and this world is not our real home. We are but passers-by, taking a material body for some time only to leave it, and then taking another. Lost and forlorn, we remain oblivious to our blissful real identity. This journey of the soul ends joyfully, however, by the mercy of true saints, such as Śrīla Nārāyaṇa Gosvāmī Mahārāja. Part One of this book consists of selected lectures by him, as well as interviews and informal meetings on the topic of the truth of the soul (jīva-tattva). Part Two delivers three chapters from Śrīla Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura’s Jaiva-dharma, and Part Three consists of quotes by Śrīla Bhaktivedānta Svāmī Mahārāja, Śrīla Prabhupāda.
