This is a revised version of an extraordinary autobiography first published in January 2017 by the Educreation Publishing House, New Delhi, under the title "Gospel According to Myself", with four new chapters added to it, and also incorporating some changes in some parts the earlier chapters. The new headings of the chapters reflect the new perspectives adopted on each of them, with an emphasis on being a life-long student even at the age of 71. The book contains four major parts: (a) a comprehensive review of Jesuit training for priest hood, based on personal experiences as a Jesuit trainee in the Madurai Province of Jesuits in India; (a) a critical review of institution building for excellence in education and training in India, focusing experiences in the Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi, South Gujarat University, Surat, and Institute of Management in Government, Thiruvananthapuram; and (c) experiences in self-management from the days of adolescence to the age of seventy; and (d) a philosophy of life evolved by the author on the basis of his vast readings, unique experiences in life, and prolonged reflection and meditation on the deeper aspects of life lived in national and international contexts. In all what he did, value concerns have been central to his thinking and actions. And nowhere was he ever free from conflicts due to his value concerns in life. In his autobiography started in 1975 and completed in 2016, the author narrates and analyses his experiences in the different situations in which he had to take value-based decisions and face the consequences for the actions. The Philosophical perspectives on his religious experiences and value management conflicts outshine all other aspects of this extraordinary document. The spirit of the author enters into a dialogue with those who read the story of his eventful life
