"Gian Kumar was born into a traditional Hindu family, in Burma (present-day Myanmar). From childhood, his life held paradoxes which he struggled to understand. While he was educated at a Christian boarding school which observed strict religious practices, these were diametrically opposed to the Hindu traditions and customs which were the norm when he went home for the holidays.
A thinker by nature, the inherent confusion and dogmas underlying religion, gradually impelled him towards spirituality. Today, he is deeply grateful for a journey filled with opportunities to learn about existential riddles such as: Who am I? What is my purpose in Life? Is God an illusion? Gian hopes to share his own experiential learnings with others through the medium of his books.
Gian lives with his family in New Delhi. He can be reached at: firstname.lastname@example.org"
deals with this core reality and the struggle imbedded in living lives of duality in the
material and technological world. Happiness unhappiness, good-bad, God-Devil - all exist
as 'One'. Despite the teachings of spiritual gurus and masters, life fails to give us the much
needed solace. Something remains missing...
The mind with its constant chatter and habit of delving into past experiences or anixieties
about the furure, does not permit us to live in the present moment, in awareness of the
now. By the time the mind registers this moment, it has already passed and a new now has
taken its place.
In this final volume, the author delves into a deeper existence where, through experiential
realization, we are able to go beyond the mind with its dual thoughts, to a state of higher
consciousness. He shows us methods we can use to attain this state and thus enter the
no-mind zone - the experience of which takes us to our core, centralizing the extremes of
duality and helping us attain awareness of being one wit the Universe."
John O'Donohue, poet, philosopher, and scholar, guides you through the spiritual landscape of the Irish imagination.

Light is generous
The human heart is never completely born
Love as ancient recognition
The body is the angel of the soul
Solitude is luminous
Beauty likes neglected places
The passionate heart never ages
To benatural is to be holy
Silence is the sister of the divine
Death as an invitation to freedom
The niceties of life which we all crave, also create many struggles and conflicts. We reach for books on spiritual development or join spiritual classes or religious centres, hoping for clarity and salvation, only to realize we are more confused than before. In fact, our confusion has been compounded by complexity.
This is where this simple book speaks to us in a straightforward, down-to-earth manner, revealing there are no diktats we need to follow-only the voice withing. We notice the change as through constant vigil, the sub-conscious takes over and we evolve by ourselves - alone; experientially"
