At the world level, we assess our ability, strength, or power before embarking upon a new venture. At the higher level, the value of knowledge is tested by its power to purify and ennoble one's life, and by its application to the evolution of one's character. This book helps to understand better one's intellectual nature in order to cultivate the good in it, and allow the One Self to be the Knower. The oneness of the Self is not easy to comprehend, but the author asserts that 'those, who would fulfil the maxim 'Know thyself' must not shrink from a little mental exertion, nor must expect mental food to drop ready-cooked from the sky into a lazily-opened mouth'.

Subjects discussed are:

  • Training the mind
  • Improving concentration
  • Strengthening thought power
  • Meditation
  • Improving memory
  • Thought transference
  • Building the mental body
  • Combining thoughts with others
  • Achieving peace of mind.

From Chapter VIII - 'Obstacles to Concentration; Wandering Minds' (p. 104):

" The concentrated intelligence, the power of withdrawing outside the turmoil, mean immensely increased energy in work, mean steadiness, self-control, serenity; the man of meditation is the man, who wastes no time, scatters no energy, misses no opportunity. Such a man governs the events, because within him is the power whereof events are only the outer expression; he shares the divine life, and therefore shares divine power. "
