Prajapita Brahma Kumaris Philosophy of Meditation focuses on understanding the self, its inner resources and strengths, and developing attributes.True knowledge of soul, however, is not a matter of superficial importance nor is to be left to some philosophers or religious scholars to discuss. Since every one of us is a conscient being, it concerns us all individually and severally. To deny ourselves the true knowledge of consciousness is to deny ourselves the right and the duty of living a meaningful life. Prajapita Brahma Kumaris Meditation is a very vast subject but the present book is very small because the purpose of this book is not to take the reader into a jungle of ideas or to acquaint him with maximum theoretical knowledge. Instead, the object of this book is to lay down briefly only the most fundamental truths, on which the science of meditation is based and to lead the reader to its practice and at the earliest so that he can himself learn further the theory in its depth and can realize the ultimate truth and taste the bliss. It would be better if, while going through this book, the reader does not compare the Meditation, explained here, to the one expounded by other authors or commentators, ancient or modern, but studies and practices it as it is, as the Meditation taught by Supreme Soul (God Shiva). This will give the reader’s mind an understanding of the exposition in its pure, unadulterated and unblurred form, with the result that the reader, being free of any confusion and mental conflict, would be able to practice Raja Yoga smoothly. Practical Meditation is highly recommended for those who are beginning to discover the beauty and strength of their inner world. More and more, we human beings are realizing the need to develop the power of the mind, as we try to keep up with the ever-increasing pace of life and complexities.
You can only be defeated in the playground of life if you leave the pitch. Life will continue to bowl to you; with a bat in your hand you can either hit the ball or duck on the bouncers. Life threw the author a lot of curve balls in his life, but with his resilience and hard-work, he survived them all. This book tells his story of survival, emotions and desires. Born and brought up in a family that lacked money and luxuries, but not love and affection, the author chose to write his own destiny. This book is about his journey beginning from humble beginnings to becoming a established surgeon.
The Vedic-Puranic literature as well as archaeological, geological, historical, linguistic, and literary accounts have been reviewed to establish the various cultures that evolved in ancient India from about 3500 BCE to the Mahabharata War (1450 BCE). The book describes various misconceptions, e.g., the myth about an Aryan invasion. The following markers are used to establish the dates and geographical locations of various cultures: (i) The rise in sea levels due to melting of land-based snow after the last Ice Age. (ii) Migration of the Dravidian people from the lost continent of Kumari Kandam that submerged under the Indian Ocean. (iii) The dates for the start of farming, use of kiln-baked bricks, domestication of horses, and metal working in the Indian subcontinent. (iv) The dates when Sarasvati River dried up and the Mahabharata War occurred. The book notes that asva-containing or rath-containing names could not have existed before horses were domesticated or chariots were in use. The book also notes that Mathura Krsna is different from Dwarka Krsna; the two are separated by more then 1000 years. During Mathura Krsna’s time, conflicts were settled by hand-to-hand combat or with the use of a mace. In contrast, during Dwarka Krsna’s time, metal arms were used.
HOW SMART DO YOU FEEL WITH YOUR SMARTPHONE?
We live in exciting times. It is the first time in the history of humanity when a new intelligence exists – not in the brains of varied species, but in our own pockets. It is the first time in the history when a piece of technology is defining our friendships and changing the way we work, walk and talk.
But as Thoreau once said, “Men have become the tools of their tools.”
Technology, which was supposed to make our lives easier and comfortable, is proving to be the biggest drivers of stress, loneliness, weakened brainpower, and behavioral addiction. We may have all the information at our finger touch, but we are failing to lead a happier life.
In this book, the author uses real-life examples and case studies to identify the various ways technology and internet have changed our lives leading to the stick-to-the-screen syndrome, or commonly referred to as digital addiction and cyber addiction. The book explores methods for better tech management and principles to build a better structure for a happier and healthier life.
News today is sensational, fast and often fake — attributes Suresh has been taught and trained to avoid. But there is a fourth attribute to news that journalists don’t wear on their sleeves. It defies all stereotypical notions associated with the profession. Emotion, it is. Newsmen are reckoned to be detached and untouched. Almost Zen-like. They are the ones who can cover a gruesome tragedy and then head straight out to have a hearty meal. On many levels, the intrepid journalist is not much different from a beat cop: Both encounter the worst of mankind. Both are exposed to the scum of the world. Both put on a brave face, admirably reticent to tragedies and comedies. But beneath the façade, there is a beating heart — one that pines for that little girl who was raped and murdered; one that sobs for that beautiful woman whose husband was murdered by her own father; and one that prays for the safety of those twelve hapless boys trapped in a flooded cave in Thailand. Write Feelings is all about this. It brings out the emotion that Suresh had bottled up during four decades of his journalistic existence. These are words that the heart refuses to say out loud but gush out in the comfort of solitude. A cathartic release.

“Please ask me anything else,” pleads Yamraj to the nine year old Nackiketa, “Don’t ask me to reveal what happens after death.” Nachiketa resolutely sticks to his stance and politely refuses to change his demand. Thus began the most profound dialogue about life between the God of death and an innocent boy. Pure innocence questions the highest wisdom. The entire discussion is encapsulated in the most profound of the Upanishads, Kathopnishad. The dialogue has a timeless charm and is embedded with jewels of guidance on life. These pearls are beautifully uncovered from the rigor of Sanskrit and presented in a beautifully flowing narrative by the author.

“I first saw Indira Gandhi from a close quarter in her office when the three leaders of the Tripartite Meeting among India, Pakistan and Bangladesh – Swaran Singh, Aziz Ahmed, Kamal Hossain – called on the Prime Minister in April, 1974.

In the process of my duties, there were several occasions to see her in office and Committee/Conference Rooms and also in the majestic corridors and stairs of her office.”

Yahweh Diaries is a universal book for humanity at large. The sole motive of writing Yahweh Diaries was to make mankind aware of the true creator and almighty God, YAHWEH.

Every heart has a pain to share. Every mind has a thought to express. Every life has a story to tell. Not just the life on earth, the in-animates that share this planet with us also have a voice that is perpetually ignored. I strongly believe that it’s only through voicing that understanding happens. A powerful expression has the ability to trigger a utilitarian thought. Letters have a power- the power to instil a mom’s strength in her daughter, the power to shout out the injustices of the world towards the weak, the power to germinate empathy and understanding in the soiled minds of the people. Letters are the scented roses in the garden of love and powerful missiles in the reign of thoughtless actions. This book contains a few letters that voice the opinions of people, apprehensions of a nation, requests of a parasite, the expectations of God and more. It’s my word to you that this book will reach the last nerve of your body and your heart will involuntarily say, “Yes! True.”

This book is not like other novels that start at a certain point and end at a certain point – it is about an ongoing phenomenon like love, in which lovers perish, but love continues. This book focuses more on the subtle topics of life that people usually skip and go on choosing to suffer for centuries, due to poor vision. Today life too has become a matter of great confusion and suffering for humankind. If you see, you will find that more than eighty percent of the population is confused about the authentic and virginal meaning of divine love, emotions, teenage, life and so on. I feel it is my duty to give the world a different kind of thinking and mind, and the greatest gift of life – the nectar of silence, love and joyfulness. I want to show the world the reasons behind the subtle slights of their anxiety, fury, and joviality. I want to introduce you to yourself – to your own being. There was a need to write something like this because, in this era, mankind is so busy making themselves strong from the outside, but they forget the authentic nature of existence, and that until they do not become strong from within, they cannot become strong on the outside either.

“SHE’ is a voice that says – “Stop Hurting Me Every Day.” SHE is not about blaming a gender or a race for the condition of women but to introspect and analyze as a society – where have we failed. SHE is a story of ordinary girls and women who stood strong despite facing the biggest challenges and fought for their rights. She consists of ample examples of women and girls icons who have achieved their goals in various fields and professions.
SHE discusses the problems that the females confront worldwide; taking a glance on the possible solutions of exemplary inspirations with some inspirational examples and stories; by appreciating males and society that openly support the ambitions, dreams, and aspirations of girls and women, because a woman business leader, a woman athlete, a woman soldier, or a woman prime minister cannot be produced in a country or society that doesn’t support women empowerment.
All the chapters in this book tell many stories of brave and powerful women and girls, who are not just “survivors,”” but “”winners,” champions,” and “achievers,” they are an inspiration to all girls and women, who restore our faith in woman and girl power; because feminism is not about hating men and bashing society for the plight of women, but it is all about EQUALITY, RESPECT, and breaking the PATRIARCHY!”

The book describes the story of the struggle of an aspirant of truth namely, Prem Singh, the pen name of the author. He wanted to understand his purpose of life and how it could be achieved in this life time. He was fortunate to have come under the guidance of Shri Raman Maharishi who would inspire him to make inquiries about ‘Who Am I’. His process is called Self-Inquiry. Apart from Self-Inquiry, another thing which struck him the most was the imposter nature of the mind, as told by the Master. Both the principles are very abstract and he had no personal interaction with the Master. While he was trying to understand these two deep philosophies he was guided to approach spiritual master Prem Rawat. He learnt the basics of spirituality from Prem Rawat namely, the difference between the heart and the mind. The heart is the treasure of human virtues and divinity, whereas the mind is an instrument which plays the double roles of a friend and a foe. It is deceitful by nature. It creates illusions and provokes you to several unwanted temptations. The Gita has described the mind as a driver (servant) of the charioteer. Mind is a servant, but through temptations it enslaves the master. Prem realized that he was a habitual slave of the mind and that was the cause of his sufferings. Through the teachings of Prem Rawat, he learnt how he could enjoy a blissful state. When Prem was progressing in the process of Self-Inquiry, he started understanding the intriguing nature of mind. At the same time, some undesirable happening took place in his life because of which he developed an obsessive nature. He was desperate to overcome his personal weaknesses. He was guided by Buddha’s philosophy of cause and effect which states that our nature is like a seed and our circumstances are its result. So to change your circumstance, you need to change your nature. He was learning by interacting with practitioners and under the guidance of Sensei Daisaku Ikeda. Gradually, he developed a challenging and compassionate spirit. With true understanding of the nature of the mind, he regained his control over mind and the blissful state. He has been guided by three spiritual Masters, saints and philosophers in his journey of spirituality. Aspirants will enjoy reading it and will benefit in their journeys.

We can adorn our life and society by leading with values. Everything multiplies in this cosmos and become double of its number. Rather than promoting material success and fake happiness, let’s start our journey towards real happiness and success by leading a value-based life that can be a long-lasting and will multiply. In this book, I have not tried to emphasize that this is the only way to lead life, but I want to say that we should try many things in life, whether it’s necessary or not. Similarly, we can try to live our life by our heart and soul, with values. Being a human, it’s our duty “to do right; be right” and see how beautiful and simple life is.
I would say that whatever we do, we think, behave, reflect as well as pass on to the next moment and into our environment. So it’s each individual’s duty to take care and take charge of their entire body, emotions, and behaviour.
Dear reader, best wishes for life!
Rabindranath Tagore is the most distinguished name in neoteric Bengali Literature, and he was the one scribe who near for up-to-the-minute India a ground on the world literary scene. The crown of Nobel Prize for learning to him was but the prelude of a drama of acknowledgment on a broad gradation to which there cannot be many parallels in bluestocking history. Tagore‘s humanity is principally expressed through his universal of inter-corporeal (I and thou) relationship. This account book will examine here Tagore‘s humanity vis-à-force in earth-chattel relationship. In system to interpret this idea, Bible invest on his notion of man; see the bounded and man the limitless, husband within boundary and man the vast. Tagore has reflected thoroughly and intently on the ontological state of people in idiosyncratic reach and the revelation of the meaning in relation (a) to nature and (b) to modes of bury-personal relationship. The immediate book also discussed with the support novels of Home and the World, Gora in discernment bur-corporeal relationship, and ultimately arrive at the conclusion that the bur-personal relationship of I and thou takes the form of intra-personal relationship of I am thou. Tagore has reflected widely and exceedingly on the ontological status of omi in idiosyncratic dimensions and the revelation of the object in description. Tagore has always contemplate himself to be a verse man and neither a learner nor a philosopher.
