About book : ABOUT THE BOOK We all wish to live in a society that is peaceful and harmonious. The mantra for peace, progress and prosperity of all is to tune our mind to the wisdom, summed up in the Sanskrit slogan: “Survay bhavantu sukhinaha, Survay santu niramaya”, which means Let all be happy, healthy and prosperous. What measures do we take to cheer us up and make our lives happier? Peace and Prosperity are key elements of quality of life. Peaceful behaviour sometimes results from a “peaceful inner disposition”. Prosperity refers to the state of being prosperous. Love and peace are the solution for all life miseries. There is wide unrest in the world. Human beings are becoming more and more impatient. The aim should be to make our mind free from all kinds of non-peace items. Peace of mind is a distant dream for all of us. What is the reason for this? The reason is that people hanker after ideal peace, that is, pure peace – a peace that is free from all kinds of non-peace items. The very word “peace” has an important value in our lives. It has an in-depth meaning. Inner peace is disappearing from our day to day life. From birth to death, all we need is love. Love and acceptance from our near and dear in-still confidence and assure us of smooth sailing in the journey of life. The different aspects on Peace, Progress, Prosperity (PPP) through Practice (THAL), Protect (NHAL) and Avoid (JHAL) are covered in Chapters 2, 3 and 4 of the book.
