I met with two ladies, a daughter and mother pair, who were interested in experiencing ashram life in India but never got around to do it. When we met, they were keen to find out all about my experience at an ashram. They are not Hindus.
The daughter urged me to write a book on it. Seeing such an interest, and what more, from non- Hindus, I thought that this book should be written for the many others who may have such ambitions but never managed to go to an ashram.
This book has been inspired by them and also by my father’s latest book titled, HINDUISM IN A NUTSHELL by Milon Nandy, which is an amazing book that explains everything about Hinduism. LIFE AT AN ASHRAM IN INDIA complements the former book by providing insights on the spiritual side of Hinduism and they both should be read for a wholesome understanding of Hinduism.
The other reason for penning these lines is to encourage our young to consider taking up the study of Self Realisation through knowledge provided in the Hindu ancient texts so that he or she may skirt the trials and tribulations of life and live a happy and prosperous life all round from a young age, one that is guided by wisdom.
Finally, this book is also for all my dear gurus who taught me from their hearts and for having given me their blessings to spread this knowledge. Last but not the least, let this book also serve as a beacon towards wisdom and light for my wonderful children and all other children, as they grow up in this world. Let the wisdom within this book be your guide in life.
