An Invitation to the Course

Namaste Friends,

We are in a very powerful and significant incarnation – the human life. It is powerful because only in this incarnation are we given the necessary intelligence, tools and will-power to craft this life towards its ultimate possibility.

But in order to do that, we need the road map; we need to know the blueprint to navigate in this world of constantly changing forms, of attractions and entanglements, of fears and illusions, of security and ambitions and of skewed perceptions.

Thousands of years ago, in an Eastern land – India, many seers and yogis were exploring the same theme, they too had experienced the same range of conflicting human emotions, and in the deepest realizations they found the road map. A perfect blueprint for human pursuits – which in Hindi they called ‘The Purushartha’

The Purushartha are the four key aims of human life or the four pursuits…it is an exploration to live a life of eternal love, peace and bliss. In this magnificent blueprint, every dimension of human existence – every need, every desire and emotion is given its due place.

I call this ‘Life Essentials’ … because without this, our life becomes a chain of random and accidental sequence of efforts, dejection, momentary pleasures and of constant mental suffering.

It is my deepest wish to share this blueprint of human pursuit, The Purushartha with all of you. This knowledge does not belong to any particular religious, sect, society or nation. This knowledge belongs to the entire humanity of its highest good. That is the nature of Truth, isn’t it?

So let’s go on this ancient journey, which is more relevant today that any other time in human history… A journey where we can get clarity on the purpose, path and pitfalls of this opportunity called Life.

With much love and blessings,
