About The Author

Books By This Author


This book is about a new way of living. It is a spirituality that is neither ritualistic nor asks us to give up the ways of worldly life and living. It only tells us to live differently by thinking differently.
This new spirituality has been bestowed upon us in the form of Gurbani, meaning words of the Guru. It is here for us and explains the way to live as an awakened human being. This is a living not simply with an awareness of our True origin but as a person having a merged conscious awareness with opened up perception by becoming True origin identity.

The illumination of Gurbani was brought for humanity by Guru Nanak 550 years back. Gurbani was bestowed Guruship 300 years back when the concept of a living person gave way to the Guru’s word and the True Guru within each one of us. We have heard the inner voice, the voice of wisdom and
hidden Truth within us. This Truth has been known to humanity with different names. People found it elusive and seldom knew the way to have a dialogue.
Gurbani brings before us the knowledge and the way to bring the True presence in our life. Gurbani words are in the form of hymns in the sacred book form known in this word as Sri Guru Granth Sahib.
Gurbani is meant for everyone. Its message is for all of humanity as an equal irrespective of caste, creed, color, or social status.
In this world there is ever present fear and anxiety that leads to stress in life. Even though we call ourselves as a modern society that has reached the moon and other planets, our problems on earth still exist. We frequently encounter sadness and our bodies still get to have new forms of diseases.
The Truth about the True nature called Sach in Gurbani is available to each one of us.

This book is about our Soul taking the charge of our life. It is an opening up of our Conscious Awareness to perception of truth with hidden parts of consciousness becoming part of our awareness.
The text explains Gurbani’s way of living from within as an awakened being as the way to shift away from the Stress of fear and anxiety. The Living from Within is living with protection of the creative force pervading the entire Creation.
The path of Gurbani goes beyond the commonly known paths to the Truth. It is about the knowledge of “Truth” that all of humanity can seek by going within. It is up above religious living and is a New Spirituality for the present times.

This Truth has been accessible throughout entire human history. A select few actually knew and achieved this awakening in all the eras. The Avatars and this messengers of God have been
telling the humanity about it. Gurbani is for this era and has brought the illuminating knowledge for Humanity to Shift to evolved way of living. 

The concepts of Gurbani explained in this book are astonishing, and so would be the change that learning and following Gurbani way brings. Our approach to life would adopt to the new state and so
does our responses towards life situations. We shift away from our Sense of Identification with the physical body and an individuality Self. The new thought opens us to our True Self
which Gurbani calls as Naam.
The new approach to life is in tune with the True Reality as we would be having perception of the true nature world. We as Soul with a body would feel the workings of unseen Oneness. This is an awakened way of living in this world in the human body connected with the Eternal

All the chapters have quotes from the hymns of Gurbani at the end. The full text is freely available in the online resources and translations. Additionally a short Glossary of terms is given at the end.
The Gurbani hymn lines have been translated by the author. While doing translations given here it has been ensured that the sequence in sentence structure and the meaning should be nearer to the original . In some translations found online the exactness may be missing as these are interpretative. Own
experience and intuitive understanding plays a vital role in translation of Gurbani lines as it is written in poetic style and not descriptive as a sentence. The Gurbani lines are not simply to convey knowledge but are also means to connect with the True Reality.
Knowing the original script is desirable but it does need inner guidance.

 ਜਿਨ੍ਹ੍ਹਿ ਕੀਏ ਤਿਸਹਿ ਨ ਜਾਣਨੀ ਮਨਮੁਖਿ ਗੁਬਾਰੀ ॥ 
 ਜਿਸੁ ਬੁਝਾਇਹਿ ਸੋ ਬੁਝਸੀ ਸਚਿਆ ਕਿਆ ਜੰਤ ਵਿਚਾਰੀ ॥
One who created, is not known to the Self-Willed person
(manmukh) as they are in darkness.
To whom HE gives understanding that alone understands,
the True One; howsoever the living being may ponder?
- (Guru Granth Sahib: Ang (page) -788)

This book book would introduce one to Gurbani which is the window to the True One. It tells about the True Guru within each one of us. We do in our life had occasion to have heard the inner voice or received guidance.
While reading the book at some places repetition may be observed. This is intentional as another door is being opened showing a different angle to reality so that our mind does not skip the subtle message since it prefers the familiar.
