#BookReview: The Hero of Our Story: A Commentary on Ramana Maharshi’s Vision of Reality by Edwin Faust

I received a copy of this book for review, read on to see my experience.  

My Review

I received a copy of this book from the publisher for review, and while I thought it sounded interesting from the blurb, I found it a little underwhelming to read. It didn’t help that it discusses an old text that I have not read or even heard of before, but as I went along, I did find myself contemplating the questions that were asked in the book. This is more of a book for philosophers, but I did find some relevance to my interests along the idea of mind, body spirit. Not a favourite, but it was only a short book and didn’t take long to read.

About the Book

When we know who we truly are, rather than who we take ourselves to be, we will realize that we are indeed the hero of our story and that we need not look to others or the world to find our heart’s desire. The Hero of Our Story is intended to be a simple and accessible entry point for those interested in Ramana and the teachings of Vedanta — one of the six schools of Hindu philosophy. A commentary on Ramana’s Sat Darshanam, each of the 42 verses from the text is presented and followed by commentary and discussion by the author.
