About the Book

…. Our world has developed a lot from what it was before hundreds of years; thanks to the giant strides that science and technology have made… But the question is whether the world has become a better place in spite of all these advancements… As Heidegger says, in the modern world that is characterised by the advent of technology, the very thinking of human beings is altered to such an extent that we view the other just as a resource to be exploited. Technological attitude is one that challenges the nature and presents everything in it as created for the enjoyment and the purpose of the human beings. Hence, a shift from the present maladies that plague the world including deterioration of relationships with others and nature can take place only with a shift in thinking – from technological thinking to a meditative thinking which would bring out the beauty and blessedness of beings in the world. Meditative thinking enables us to affirm the importance of technology without them affecting our inner core that we can let them go at any time and deny them the right to dominate us. This is the way in which humans become the shepherds of Being. Technology thus would become a channel for a better world in which we dwell poetically by preserving the Being in the beings by turning our attention to the fourfold unity of the earth, sky, divinities and mortals in all.
