From the Jacket:

 

The Holistic Way to Health, Happiness and Harmony contains one hundred and eight prescriptions, being the distilled essence of ancient Hindu wisdom, ranging from astropalmic analysis, practice of the eight limbs of Yoga to maintain a perfect body, mind-vacuuming or meditation to ensure a stress-free life, breath regulation, twenty two varied ways of relaxing the mind and the body, eleven diet axioms and eleven wonder foods to be taken daily, practical suggestion for choosing life-partners and making marriages joyous, meaningful and long lasting, ideas for creating a beautiful environment at home by using the lucky colours to the more esoteric awakening of Kundalini or creative power, the development of spirituality through four different paths or a mix of the four, the four main goals of life and the four stages of life and how the two can be beautifully interlinked, the concept of enjoyment leading to liberation and finally the philosophy of advaita which stresses the oneness of all creation, united by an underlying common Spirit so as to enable us to forget the artificial barriers and confrontational divisions based on sex, race, colour, nationality, religion, etc.

This book is an invaluable guide and companion to all those who aspire for strong and healthy bodies, happy relationships and a harmonious world.

Preface

It was a beautiful fall evening in Minneapolis . Nature was shining in all her colourful glory.

I overhead a conversation between my daughter and my son-in-law:

"Your dad is great guy. He seems to be always happy. Anyone in his present position would be sulking. I wish everyone could be like him: happy and cheeful, whatever happens."

I was at that jobless and penniless. I had quite my job in India, disbanded my household and landed in the United States with ten dollars in my pocket. But I was happy, as I ever was.

My son -in-law's words gave me an idea: I should share my secrets of health, happiness and harmony with all of you.

The result is this book.

If even one of you who reads it can take a faltering step towards happiness, I shall consider my endeavour successful.

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.
