What is enlightenment?
When we cease to bask in the dull light of our minds, when we cease
to see everything in this light and switch over to perceiving
everything in the wide spectrum of the divine light and
experience life in its broadest possible context so that
seemingly unsurmountable daily-life circumstances
appear as minuscule is enlightenment.”

What’s On My Mind?​


Whats's New?


At a very young age Anil Kumar sensed conflict, physical, social and psychological, both inside and around him, and discovered a secret ally which he calls Nature that has always given him the strength to withstand adversity and courage….

Anil's Inspiration

What is seen with the eye,
may be falsehood.
What is seen with the mind,
may be an illusion.
But what is seen with awareness,
is reality.

– Gentle Breeze of Daily Wisdom

There has to be a reason why there is suffering.
Suffering compels you to find a purpose bigger than yourself.
Nature knows its purpose.
To water the whole garden you have to squeeze the hose harder for the goodness to go far.
– Anil Kumar

Book Reviews

The following is a selection of the kind things people have written about Good-bye, Mr Patel. If you would like your review to appear here please email it to


You are self-empowered when your
entire conduct and deportment
are guided by the esoteric force deep within you,
not anywhere external.
– Anil Kumar

There is no case for wearing a forlorn countenance.
Success will come your way when you least expect it.
There are no setbacks in life, only minor obstacles so Nature has  time to organise and orchestrate the course for you to go forth towards your destiny.
– Anil Kumar



The Sufi corner

“You were born with potential.
You were born with goodness and trust.
You were born with ideals and dreams.
You were born with greatness.
You were born with wings.
You are not meant for crawling, so don’t.
You have wings.
Learn to use them and fly”
– Rumi

Take someone who doesn’t keep score,
who’s not looking to be richer, or afraid of losing,
who has not the slightest interest even in his own personality, he’s free 

– Rumi


Readers reviews

This is the story of how a man came to be the man he came to be. It's auto-biographical but it's not an autobiography. The author weaves the disparate, non-linear threads of his life into an eloquent tapestry of his personal spirituality. I'm by no means a spiritual man but I can certainly appreciate the underlying philosophy, and it's a fascinating journey from humble beginnings to wealth that's measured not in money or status but in a sense of inner peace. Although I've given 5 stars please regard it as a 4.9. The pursuit of perfection is a journey, not a destination. Only when you reach the top of the hill can you see the mountain you have yet to climb. By giving a score of 4.9 I encourage the author to strive further in the sequel, that I may give it a score of 4.99. But beware; if you read this book you may end up speaking like this. You have been warned!
