Its time to see one of the quotes that I liked, yet again:
Yesterday - History : Tomorrow - Mystery : Today - Gift may be old but would still make you smile.
Her meeting with her soulmate(Garth is a vegetarian and a teetotaler) happened casually and the SMS that changed their spiritual journey is this ->
There is another quote which is worth mentioning here:
Do you know the significance of AUM?
What is Meditation?
Another quote which found its place in the book is definitely worth its mention:
“Nothing is lost in God’s Kingdom”. How many of us would have felt that same, had an unfortunate event like this had happened? I sincerely pray that this wouldn't happen to any but shows the positive mindset of the author.
The book finds mention about:
Lord Shiva's Trishul
Sattvic, Rajasic and Tamasic foods
Vatta, Pitta, Kapha and its association with the body
Five Elements and how they are connected to our body
Yoga and its types
Benefits of Yoga
The Seven Chakras
Five Horses and Pancha Koshas
Seven Synonyms to describe God in Christian Science etc are certainly worth the read.
Author is of the opinion that “GOD is beyond religion, beyond idols, beyond books & beyond temples” and comfortable with God being called in different names but believes on one God, one higher intelligence who is infinite & diverse

Author was a part of AOL Silver Jubilee Celebrations in Bangalore, 2006 where 2.5 million took part in the largest guided meditation in the history of mankind. There are few interesting stories that finds its mention in the book including that of Joshua Bell’s incognito performance at metro station organised by Washington Post.
A dedicated chapter which talks about the difference between Teacher & Guru is stupendous and shouldn't be missed.
