Life At An Ashram In India by Joy Nandy is a Journey To Discover The Self

 

“This experience and knowledge that I have received, is very inspiring. If only everyone can experience this, it shall be his or her privilege. On the other hand, it may not.

 

So many of us would rather chase the cash. Pursue the dream. Alas! We desire to desire. We want and we will continue wanting. My learning outcome of the Upanishads (Ancient Hindu Spiritual Philosophies) and the Bhagavad Gita (Hindu Holy Book), in the end, tell me just one thing – to be desireless, as the only way towards everlasting peace, joy, and harmony.

 

It was explained to me that we were born with a centrifugal outlook to life. We were born looking outwards and elsewhere – we have gone off the centre of ourselves. We believe that our joy and happiness lie in the hands of others. We are seeking happiness away from ourselves. No one told us otherwise. Man is called “a deluded and ignorant race” because of this. When true joy, the real ‘truth’, lies only within us.

 

Our God, our Soul, our Joy, are nowhere else, but in us. Resting silently in the core of our beings, at the cradle of our hearts, guiding our consciousness.”

 

– Joy Nandy

About the author

 

Joy Nandy spent several months in India visiting Jnana Ashrams (Knowledge Ashrams) in pursuit of the knowledge found in the great and ancient Hindu Scriptures, such as, the Bhagavad Gita and Upanishads. The Knowledge for man to live a happy and abundant life, or the “Compass For Life”. 

 

His journey to the ashrams commenced when he started to question if there is, in fact, “another” world. A world different from the one we know, and a world free from greed and violence. He also started to search for a book, or any literature, that did not originate from the mind of a human being, or “not written by a mortal” (so to speak), and found them both in one beautiful life-changing event at the ashrams.

 

This great knowledge for mankind can only be found at Knowledge Ashrams, or Jnana Ashrams, but only a few access it. Hence, Joy Nandy has made his mission to reveal the Gems From The Ashrams through his publications for EVERYONE to relish and gain.
