Conscious Living is a compilation of various articles that inspire us to discover the joy of life, that expresses itself as our thoughts, emotions, feelings and intelligence.

About The Author

The author, Swami Ishwarananda is a disciple of Swami Chinmayananda. He wrote these thought-provoking articles for the CMW Newsletter published from Piercy, California, USA to inspire the readers to live a healthy, spiritually advanced life. He has a lucid style of writing, supported by anecdotes, quotes and messages from various religions of the world. His words are very convincing, apt to the well known saying –‘Wisdom is to be caught, not taught!’

 

Foreword

Living becomes meaningful when it is consciously invested with understanding. Many of us, complete with theoretical knowledge, go through the motions of like mechanical toys, but when we accosted with real-life problems or situations, we come to a stand still. We do not know how to proceed and complete the journey.

In “Conscious Living,” Swami Ishwarananda uses some of Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda’s saying as take-off points, guiding the reader through reflections on religion and metaphysics, life and death, thought and mind, love and caring, often using perspicacious stories to illustrate a point. At the end of it, we hope the reader will find his own way to the fulfillment of conscious living.

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.
