This book is long pending to be reviewed. Due to some personal issues, I had been having a delay in many blog posts. Anyway, without further rants from my side, here is a crisp review:
After having gone through the book, you will definitely and convincingly realize that to achieve peace, true happiness, contentment, satisfaction and also to attain continuous progress in life in terms of material gains, respect and love, you need not depend on anybody in this world. It all depends on you. It is all in your hands.”—‘Saharasri’ Subrata Roy Sahara “Nobody does anything for anyone. All do for themselves either for more and more material gains or to save and escape from any kind of material losses or from mental-emotional dissatisfaction or for getting more and more mental-emotional satisfaction. Therefore, no one sacrifices for anyone. When no one does anything for anyone, there is no justification in expecting any returns.” The author goes on to explain that to make life truly beautiful, one also needs to understand the basic truths with which we are born or the basic instincts inherent in us all. So for a positive outcome one has to learn the psychological or the emotional aspects of life, in other words, the realities of life or the entire philosophy of life. As you get immersed in the potent energy of these ‘Life Mantras’, you will slowly find a change, a sense of fulfillment, a self-motivation coming in you. You will thus be led to the ultimate realization that the journey of life is indeed a truly blissful and an enlightening experience.
My Take On It:
While one might think that this book is a non-fictional piece on the life of the author, they are wrong. This book is about life as such. The author discusses the philosophy of life as a whole in this book. At most points, we can actually correlate & nod in silence with what the author says.
1. The book does not preach! I prefer to stay away from philosophical non fiction books for they preach a lot, but this one isn’t that kind. It just shares author’s POV on various aspects of life.
1. The book seems didactic. The author keeps over emphasizing at some places.
Would I recommend? Yes
Bottom line: A decent read on philosophy of life; it’s neither amateur nor profound.
