Life Management Techniques (Book) : Swami Swaroopananda
On the surface, an enchanted life would seem the ideal existence – a life free from worries, wants, insecurities, incapacities, and so forth. Indeed, that is the sum total of all product advertisements, recreational pursuits, even business goals, and social norms, put together. And yet nothing could be more elusive.
The fundamental truth of life – and all of us are aware of it, though we conveniently keep forgetting it – is that for as long as we’re breathing, there can be no escaping all the negative, nay, challenging situations that owe to our destiny. But how we respond to them is the key that sets apart success from stagnation, joy from dejection, fulfillment from frustration. Artful management of life’s vicissitudes is, therefore, the antidote to wishful thinking, and such treatment requires first and foremost a wilful change of mindset: a shift in focus from results to process, from destination to journey…because, quite simply, the ‘stuff’ of life is always in the here and now.
In this book, Swami Swaroopananda, a disciple of Vedanta champion Swami Chinmayananda, shares many insightful tips and techniques to enable exactly such a transition. The reader is assured of being empowered to handle with grace, conviction, and a renewed sense of direction, the greatest possible opportunity nature could give us: life itself.
