So, you can have just a look at its breif from her before having the full version.
Review of the Book Content:
Talk is about an era when the wisdom of yoga had been buried under years of ritual practices, when religion outweighed human values, when games were becoming wars and wars were being played like games. It was at such a time that, in a quaint village in south India, a young boy was found in deep meditation. He said, ‘I have family everywhere. People are waiting for me.’
No one believed him at that time….
Time revealed destiny of the millions who came to him but discovered themselves. Over the years, his sublime presence and pragmatic teachings would foster the values of joy, peace and love across the world. The transformative art of breathing, the Sudarshan Kriya, became a household practice.
An alternative way of life that inspired people to seek self-realization. Ultimately, became the guru who made the empyreal tangible, who brought about a profound shift in every sphere of human endeavour—from art to architecture, health care to rehabilitation, inner peace to outer dynamism.
Gurudev: On the Plateau of the Peak is an attempt to fit the ocean in a teacup, offering readers a sip of infinity.
The younger sister of Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. Innocently at first, and with joyful awareness later, she has followed her brother, her Master, throughout her life.
Gurudev says, ‘Meditation is smiling at yourself.’ Bhanumathi is a meditation teacher. Her workshops have brought about an experience of deep inner peace to thousands of people worldwide. The outer expression of this peace is service to humanity.
Bhanumathi leads the women welfare and child care initiatives at Art of Living. From a small free school with thirty children of construction workers. The Gift a Smile project now supports 435 schools with over 58,000 underprivileged children. As the chairperson of the International Women’s Conference, her vision is to create a global network. Over 5000 women from eighty nationalities have participated in these conferences so far.
