Book Review – Devoid of Duality

Devoid of duality by Tanmay

Book : Devoid of duality
Author : Tanmay kumar
Rating : 4.5/5

Devoid of duality is a self help book that explores meditation techniques, mindfulness and spiritual awareness.
From the stillness between the inhale and exhale, to the moment of death which is the most intense one, this book explains a lot.


I learnt about observing silence,  peaceful stillness after each heartbeat, being concious and fully aware of whatever we do, inner peace,  that life is dynamic and death means absolute pause, The self is eternally peaceful and devoid of duality , always at stillness.

This book is written in the form of quotes and every quote has a deep hidden meaning and gave a lot to ponder over.

I am rating this 4.5/5. This book is a gem and had a calming effect on me. I would definitely recommend this book to everyone.

The book was provided by the author for review purpose but that doesn’t affect my review.
