Most of us in the present times find ourselves torn between the beliefs handed down by our forefathers, and the pragmatic materialism of the modern times. Is it really necessary to give up one for the other? Is acquisition of wealth and material comforts to be shunned? Is spirituality to be derided and cast off as just a myth?
Drawing deeply on the wisdom acquired by generations of both the East and the West, this book points out the practical benefits to be gained in this life itself by leading a life of spirituality, without giving up on material comforts.
A simple guide to leading a healthy and prosperous life, with good relationships at home, at the work-place, and with society at large, which shows you the advantages to yourself in developing positive attitudes, and loving relationships... In that attempt it handles both spirituality and life skills in a convincing manner that they can be easily grasped and practiced.
An excellent reference book for the young, who are looking for such guidance outside their homes, and the older generation, who are perplexed as to how to pass on their views to their wards in an acceptable manner...
