Siddhartha, a brilliant text and a wonderful narration by Satya

The narrator brings a dramatic authenticity to the text, which is itself a timeless classic of wisdom 😉 (as much as wisdom can be communicated)

This is the third time I imbibe Hesse’s presentation of Siddarth’s ancient story. Each time I’m moved and fascinated, even more so I can see how deeply this book has actually affected my life. 

I give this book to those closest to me, it is life changing and meaningful. If you want a story that is mesmerizing and profound, read this book.


The Lucifer Effect

“…the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart?” – Alexander Solzehenitsyn. 

Here is to celebrating the ordinary Hero

Wow one of the most difficult and meaningful readings I’ve ever experienced.  This is such an important book to understand, especially with the recent terrorist incidents in Paris. 

What most strikes me is my past assumption of evil being something extraordinary and extremely perverse, when in reality it thrives in banal “normality”
