Description
Back of the Book

Go ahead. Take a look inside. You could use a good laugh. This colourful All! WisdOl/l Book will knock your socks off! It's a collection of short, REAL LIFE incidents, where Swami Tejomayananda has given the highest wisdom during casual interactions with devotees. In a witty and simple way, his playful statements are instantly engaging - when unravelled, they provide the basic building blocks of everyday life.

Featuring titles such as Lock, stock and all sl1loking barrels and Tile nanislting tiger, these delightful stories - accompanied by vibrant cartoons - wrap great insight and inspiration. It's a one-of-a-kind book. It's Vedanta - and a prescription for happy living - in a fun, practical way.

Preface

In folk tales, a sage often appears homeless, wearing ragged clothes and funny shoes.

But this is not a tale. This is about a Real sage. Most real sages look very much like ordinary people. They live in ordinary homes and work in ordinary jobs. Only, they do things extraordinarily.

In these short stories, an attempt has been made to capture the resplendence of a real sage- Swami Tejomayananda.

As head of Chimneys Mission, he is much sought after. Yet in his everyday interactions, Guruji is at perfect ease with his surroundings. The depth of his personality is vividly seen in his wisdom, wit and simplicity.

These 73 stories have been selected from over 600 that were gathered from devotees of Chinmaya Mission around the world, to be presented to Guruji in this surprise book, as a token of have appreciation.

Each of these stories is true, although some editing was necessary in exercising in exercising creative license.

The explanation at the end of each story is sourced from the work of Masters, namely, Swami Chinmayananda (Founder, Chinmaya Mission), Swami Tejomayanada (President Divine Life Society) and Swami TeJomayananda (Head, Chinmaya Mission). Our humble salutation and thanks to them.

We thank the main sponsors of The Ah! Wisdom Book: Harish, Lakshmi & Sacheen Hiranand, Bela Pandya, Chinmaya Seva Center Singapore, Arvind & Meena Mathur, Rajbir & Nicki Singh and Gopala & Shashikala Dwarkanath, We also thank the many others who have generously contributed and worked to put this book together. And, a special note of appreciation for talented cartoonist, who wishes to stay anonymous.
