Thought I should share some of the authors I have read and enjoyed. See if anyone clicks to you. They have books on yoga, ayurveda, ancient sciences , natural healing or life.
- Swami Sivananda
- Swami Vishnudevananda
- B.K.S. Iyengar
- Dr Robert Svobda
- Dr David Frawley
- Dr Vasant Lad
- Deepak Chopra
- Paul Pitchford
- Last but not least my guru Pradip Bulsara who has 2 e-books on Apple.
- Way to learn ancient science or any , is of course you learn basic first, spend time with someone who knows it if possible, experiment , observe , share and meditate.
I know some of you are probably getting annoyed with all philosophy posts. But hey, there’s so much here on justlunchideas, so just take what you like or what you need. 1 of my favorite thing to think abt is life. Someone asked me knowing that i have been doing yoga for so long “what’s your biggest achievement?” And my answer was “I learned to live.”
Often i compare life with buffet. I love indian buffets. There’s so many varieties, so many things to try that even if you don’t like anything you still will be full trying little bit of everything. I try a sample of everything and then get more of what i liked. Being vegeterian, all non-veg options are useless for me. But i don’t keep complaining abt that. There’s more than enough for me to try.
Isn’t life same way? There’s so much to explore, to do. There will be things that work for you, some don’t. If you have to complain, complain but just don’t go hungry. Try things and find out what clicks to you. And yes, don’t impose your likes/dislikes on others.
Enjoy your life buffet !
As I was updating my work resume, this idea abt life resume came. Being professional , we should always update our resume now and then. But do we ever think abt our life resume? What would you put on it? What are your goals in life? Are you on track? Do you have things decades older to put on? And nothing new?
Everyone will have different things to put on. What makes you feel alive. How much you have grown in life. If you are still breathing, then you should be able to update your life resume. Add new things to it and watch life unfolding, bringing new joys and experiences.
Picture above is taken at Mt Everest Base Camp. I am in pink hat. Waiting for clouds to clear up to get glimpse of Mt Everest and yes, that moment , experience does make a space in my life resume. May be some day I will share my experience and realization that happened at Mt Everest.
Enjoy your resume!
