This book is a discussion of the eight obstacles seekers encounter on the spiritual path as described in classical spiritual texts. This book explains how to develop a new attitude, an attitude that will enable us to swiftly proceed down the path of devotion, love, and ultimately realization. Indeed, while traveling the spiritual path, many unforeseen boulders, cliffs, and pitfalls are encountered, but we can navigate safely when the path is illumined with the torch of wisdom.
On the spiritual journey, we should know our strengths and weaknesses. A sincere seeker carefully eradicates weaknesses and obstacles and intelligently cultivates virtues. As a result, we can transform our lives and quickly proceed down the path. As a good singer practices singing daily or a good athlete never neglects daily exercise, similarly, a spiritual seeker or any person who wants to succeed in life must pursue the necessary practices without delay or dismay.
This book can be used as a spiritual handbook that describes eight obstacles on the spiritual path as well as how to overcome them with love and prayer.
