Anand: Living Blissfully

Free sample

Have you wondered why happiness doesn't last?

​Does your experience of life reflect the 'normal' ups and downs, heightened only by your desires? Is it simply your lot as a human being to live this transitory existence, of being bounced around in a perpetual cycle of happiness, sorrow and apathy? Or is there a way out of this cycle?


Drawing upon timeless wisdom, Anand: Living Blissfully shows that a way out of this cycle is not only possible, but that it is eminently feasible. Through an enlightened, disciplined and inspired living, Anand (a blissful life) is possible. However, it requires courage to leave what you already know. 


Have you had enough of happiness? Are you ready for bliss?

This prayer book is the kind manifestation of Waheguru ji’s  grace. It is aimed to assist all, especially the young and those who do not understand Gurmukhi yet, to do Nitnem.

Prayer is an essential part of Sikhism. As food nourishes and strengthens the body, prayer purifies the mind uplifts the soul.

Sikhs are ordained to rise in the morning and meditate on the Name of God ‘Waheguru’.

They are also expected to do ‘Nitnem’ which literally means ‘Daily Routine’.

Nitnem is composed of a collection of five prayers to be done during different periods of the day.

Morning  (3 prayers) Japji Sahib, Jaap Sahib and Sawaiye.

Evening (1 prayer) – Rehras Sahib

Night (1 prayer) – Kirtan Sohila

Ardaas should be done after every prayer session.

I have included Ardaas for the reader in this book too.

The person who forms the habit of doing Nitnem daily, ultimately experiences bliss and peace.

While the best experience would be derived from reading the prayers in Gurmukhi, there should be no hindrance for anyone who does not know the Gurmukhi script, to do Nitnem

While every effort has been made to simplify the transliteration, I encourage the reader to read the prayers while listening to them in audio format a couple of times.

This will help them grasp the correct pronunciation.

There is a section for links to the individual prayers in YouTube. This will help to get the correct pronunciation, or if you wish to just listen to the prayers.

This prayer book is perfect to carry around in one’s device, so the prayers can be performed from anywhere.

It is also a wonderful gift to offer to friends and family.

After doing prayers regularly, one can look for translation books to assist in helping understand the Bani.

I am certain that by Waheguru ji’s grace, the reader will eventually seek to learn the Gurmukhi script.


Human lives are getting increasingly entangled with technology, especially comp- ing and electronics. At each step we take, especially in a developing world, we are dependent on various gadgets such as cell phones, handheld PDAs, netbooks, me- cal prosthetic devices, and medical measurement devices (e.g., blood pressure m- itors, glucometers). Two important design constraints for such consumer electronics are their form factor and battery life. This translates to the requirements of reduction in the die area and reduced power consumption for the semiconductor chips that go inside these gadgets. Performance is also important, as increasingly sophisticated applications run on these devices, and many of them require fast response time. The form factor of such electronics goods depends not only on the overall area of the chips inside them but also on the packaging, which depends on thermal ch- acteristics. Thermal characteristics in turn depend on peak power signature of the chips. As a result, while the overall energy usage reduction increases battery life, peak power reduction in?uences the form factor. One more important aspect of these electronic equipments is that every 6 months or so, a newer feature needs to be added to keep ahead of the market competition, and hence new designs have to be completed with these new features, better form factor, battery life, and performance every few months. This extreme pressure on the time to market is another force that drives the innovations in design automation of semiconductor chips.
