Description
Author's Preface

We have the remarkable ability to create convenient conceptions and twist them into innovative interpretations. We weave wonderful webs of fantasies and fallacies, romanticize the path, misunderstand the teachings, squeeze pointless meanings from the Master's words, find excuses to escape from our commitments, and play the blame-game with the karma theory. Thus we totally digress from the reality, and move further and further away from the Master's teachings.

We complicate the simplicity of the teachings with our fancy illusions, concepts, and misinterpretations, instead of applying our common sense. The path is simple; we make it complicated!
