Thought At Sunrise (Hardcover)
by Acharya Mahaprajna
In comparision to thoughts, I have greater faith in thoughtlessness. Thoughts are born only when I want to think. If do not wish it then my thoughts remain attached to my thoughtless state. On the 1st of January 1998, Sadhvi Vishrut Vibha suggested that if I write a thought a day, it would be very useful. I accepted her animated suggestion. Everyday I kept dictating a few lines to her. Professor (Dr.) Dayanand Bhargav read those lines. He too was inspired by the work. The whole year this activity continued and with the year end, it also came to a close.
This year, Sadhvi Vishrut Vibha began to translate the work into English. Meha, daughter of Ajit Bengani also assisted her. One day I was telling her that we should show the translation to some English professor. Luckily, S. Regunathan, Principal Secretary to the Chief Minsiter, Delhi Government, had come and with him was his wife, Sudhamahi. Sadhvi Vishrut Vibha spoke to her and she undertook the job of adding the final touches. The kind of dedication and involvement with which she handled her assignment is indicative of the bright future ahead of her. One thought was dominant in her mind while she worked: even after centuries have gone past, the book must retain its value. To her felicity in language she added her hard work and the result is that the translation has gained in authenticity and readability.
Samani Muditpragya prepared the script simultaneously while Muni Dhananjay Kumar took charge of its production.
Now this collection of thoughts is presented to take the reader from thoughts to a state of thoughtlessness.
