The Lost Meaning
Description

About the Book

The Lost Meaning (Gwache Arth) written in 1993 is an odyssey in search of the lost meaning of life during the turbulent period of nineteen eighties in the Punjab. The protagonist in this novel is a lonely figure caught unawares in the meshes of social prejudices and political manoeuvres. In his contemplative moods and moments, he realises the futility of building walls of preconceived notions and half-baked truths. Before long he comes to the conclusion that the two communities residing in the Punjab are like June’s swans - ‘still coupled and inseparable.’

Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
Bernd, Spain
