With the blessings of the Almighty and deepest gratitude,happy to share my First book-The Perennial Journey with all.The book is marketed by the Times Group ,India and will be released Pan India on 20’August’17.It will also be available online @Amazon from the same date.

 

THE PERENNIAL JOURNEY-INTRODUCING THE BOOK

My book ‘The Perennial Journey’ is the journey of my thoughts, the journey of my life and the journey of my enlightenment about the true realities of life. The enlightenment of who we actually are, how we exist and who is the Power that makes us what we are. The book is tilted ‘The Perennial Journey’ because the journey of a human life is a continuous process of learning, understanding and imbibing the best out of it in order to become a perfect human being and fulfil the purpose of birth and existence as humans. We must appreciate that we are blessed to have a human body and thus  should never forget the purpose of our existence on this earth, which is to recognize the Power of the divine and to attain Him in true sense.

It is a proven fact that we receive what we think and our thoughts are the most important factor that decides the path of our life. The Almighty empowers us with the powers to select the right path for our life but that can only happen when we have strong faith, reach the point of true devotion towards the Power above and surrender completely. If we are able to have these qualities than the Almighty surely enables us to give shape to our thoughts and helps us to be successful in all our endeavours.

I can say all this with so much conviction because I have experienced it. My spiritual journey has been an eye-opener which brought into light many things which I had been missing all through my life and I feel truly blessed that I was able to do so. There were events and moments in life where I had no choice but to drag myself into adverse scenarios but my faith stopped me to do so and on the contrary, directed me to the path of attaining the most powerful spiritual knowledge of The Bhagavad Gita, our holy scripture which negates the false and irrelevant thoughts and awakens us to experience the true realities of life. It has the power to guide the reader to look at life from an altogether different perspective so that they can have a complete understanding of what transpires in this world.If one understands and follows this scripture in a true and an unbiased manner and reads it without any preconceived notions than it can surely be a life changer and I am glad that I have been able to do so and have experienced that change. My book, ‘The Perennial Journey’ is thus largely an inspiration of what we learn from this beautiful scripture and it’s divine teachings which the Supreme Power,Shri Krishna personally imparted to Arjuna for the benefit of the entire mankind.

My book is a compilation of some of my articles written over the span of 3 years. Although the overall theme of the 190-page book is spiritual and motivational, I have divided it into four major sections: God, Soul, Life and Introspection, which I believe are the stepping stones to the path of enlightenment. However, the real meaning comes not by looking at each of the sections in isolation but understanding the inter-relatedness of all the sections. The aim of the book is to provide the reader with an overall perspective of life along with a holistic reading experience. The book hopes to take its reader to a spiritual journey and engross them into deep thoughts of understanding the eternal power and help them undergo a complete change in the thought process by the time they reach its end .

Bhagavad Gita says that in order to put stress to a particular subject it has to be repeated. That is why in my book too, a lot of repeated emphasis is given to the subject that the particular section is based on .Since most of the articles are based on personal life experiences, I personally believe that the book will be relatable to most people and hence be successful in getting the essence across.

I truly wish that the readers of this book are able to achieve the similar kind of enlightenment that I have experienced in my life and are able to make a change in their life as well as that of others because of the awakening which the book offers.

God bless all.

AN EFFORT TO MAKE A NEW BEGINNING AS AN AUTHOR.

A Rendezvous With Mamta Sehgal

Mamta Sehgal has been at the forefront of the fashion industry for last 20 years, acting as an academic mentor with the leading Fashion Institutes of the country besides hands-on experience in a multitude of designing projects. She has also been involved with Retail experience related to Fashion and has been on the panel of academic selection for NIFT on behalf of the management body –AIMA between 2007 till 2012.

After a dynamic stint in the industry, she ventured out to find a new avenue to engage and found her solace in extensive reading. Her destiny introduced her to the most important scripture of Hinduism, “The Bhagavad Gita”, and she felt totally engrossed into the power and depth of the book. The book changed her outlook towards life, lend her the wisdom to look at things from a detached perspective and appreciate the larger scheme of things in the smallest and most trivial events happening around us. As a result, she started writing articles that would link routine incidents or familiar anecdotes with The Power above. However, as a bud needs sunlight to blossom into a magnificent flower, her source of strength and inspiration comes directly from The Ultimate Source of everything.

Her reading, thus became a foundation for her writing journey and her columns were regularly published in “Inner Voice”, the spiritual editorial section of the national daily, The Hindustan Times which became a source of encouragement for her to begin the journey of writing a book. Besides this she also has a popular blog titled ‘‘The Krishna Calling’’ on leading blog site — Wordpress.

As the events of her life have been unfolding, Mamta is now set on a spiritual journey, deriving her strength and inspiration from The Bhagavad Gita, which she feels has the power and depth to change the world. She wants to dedicate her life propagating her interpretations from the sacred text which might be a source of a contextual guidance to people. She, through her written works desires to promulgate as how to stay connected with the ultimate power while we all go through the self-routines of our respective lives and its incidental journey.

Mamta is also on the Jury panel for We Care Film Festival — an organisation which specifically showcases short films on disability issues around the world for over fifteen years. Her association with the initiative has deepened her spiritual endeavours and has given a newer meaning to her writings.

With her upcoming book titled `The Perennial Journey’, Mamta brings to us a compilation of some of her articles written over the span of 3 years. Although the overall theme of the 110-page book is spiritual,she has divided it into four major sections: God, Soul, Life and Introspection, which she believe are the stepping stones to the path of enlightenment.

DUALITIES OF DELUSION

 

In Mahabharata, Krishna tells Arjuna that all living entities are born into delusion, bewildered by dualities arising from desire and hate.The real constitutional position of the living entities is that of subordination to the Supreme Lord; who is pure knowledge. When one is deluded into separation from this pure knowledge, he becomes controlled by the illusionary energy and is not able to understand the Supreme Personality of Godhead. The illusionary energy is manifested in the duality of desire and hate, due to which the ignorant person wants to become one with the Supreme lord, envies Him as the Supreme Personality of Godhead, does not believe in His powers and thinks that he is as powerful as God.

The pure devotees who are not deluded or contaminated by desire and hate, can understand that Lord Sri Krishna, who appears by His internal potencies; is all pervasive and all powerful, but those who are deluded by duality and nescience think that the Supreme Personality of Godhead is created by material energies; and this is their misfortune. Such deluded persons, symptomatically, dwell in dualities of honour and dishonour, misery and happiness, woman and man, good and bad, pleasure and pain, etc., thinking that, “this is my wife; this is my house; this is my money; these are my children; I am the master of this house; I am the husband of this wife, so on and so forth. These are the ‘Dualities of delusion’ and those who are deceived by these dualities are completely foolish and therefore cannot understand the Supreme personality of Godhead and His powers.

Such people unwisely claim all the material things to be there’s and are totally unaware of the realities of life. Unintelligently, all their life they keep on fighting with the endless conflicting thoughts that their mind breeds and are never able to come out of it. And in the process, their whole life is spent in disbelief and misconceptions; never having the understanding of their own existence and its eternal relationship with the Almighty.

Living in dualities, thus dilutes the complete purpose of life as one is only engrossed in meaningless activities which entangle one in the material fantasy, from where there is no retreat. These delusions, also known as Maya covers the intelligence of the man as the clouds cover the sun and takes away the brightness of a sunny day.

Thus ,for a pure existence on this earth we must come out of the clutches of Maya and make pure efforts to live an ideal life where we have the true understanding of the universal truth.

Mamta Sehgal.
