“The illusion of death is discerned when one is able to eke out of one’s consciousness the ultimate state – Integrity/Oneness. When this is done the fear or illusion of death dissipates. Then we realise the futility of deliberate taking of other human life or calling any debilitating event a suffering because in the end everything will end up at the doorstep of the Source.To discover what lies at the doorstep of the Source is a purpose mightier than any other endeavour for us mere mortals – we are mortals until we crack open the nutshell of the mysterious Source.”– AK

True joy is in being used for a purpose recognised by yourself as a mighty one, being a true force of nature instead of a feverish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy
– George Bernard Shaw

Live life as if everything is rigged in your favour.
– Rumi

Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen.
– Ralph Waldo Emerson

Healing yourself is connected with healing others.

The Sufi corner

In the state of Wholeness,
you cannot lose anything,
not even hope!

– Anil Kumar

The first ray of enlightenment will raise
the subject above
happiness and unhappiness.
– Anil Kumar

When you open all the doors and windows,
corridors and balconies, and the
basement and penthouse of your mind,
you will hear what is not said and
see what is not visible to the eye.

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!

Anil guides us lovingly, yet dynamically, through his experiences of living and how his total acceptance of the inevitable highs and lows of life have led him to appreciate the magnificence and purpose of our creation.
