Buzzing Chandigarh (Vijay) Chandigarh 14thFebruary : Designing Destinyhas hit the stands of all major bookstores and airports and is available online onAmazon.in. It is by renowned spiritual leader and bestselling author of The Heartfulness Way, Daaji (Kamlesh Patel), the Heartfulness guide. His first book, a number one bestseller on the HT Nielsen Bookscan Service chart and on Amazon.in in 2018, focused on the meditation practices of Heartfulness, whereas Designing Destiny puts these practices into the context of lifestyle. The book is launched in association with Westland Publications Pvt. Ltd.
Daaji says, ‘We have tremendous freedom to design our destiny. If destiny were fixed, why would we work? Why would young people study, as the knowledge would come anyway if it is in their destiny? If someone is supposed to become the PM, do they need to campaign before an election? All these activities would be redundant… Destiny is a very complex thing. Some part of it is fixed, just like our genetic expression. We have a fixed genome and nothing can be done about it. But there is an epigenome, which can be changed because it is susceptible to outer circumstances.’
What does destiny mean in the course of our lives?
What is fixed and what can change?
How can we design our own destiny?
These are questions that some of the world’s greatest philosophers have asked since time immemorial. In this groundbreaking book, Daaji addresses such questions with simple solutions and practical wisdom. He leads us on to the next stage of the journey after The Heartfulness Way, guiding us on how to use the Heartfulness practices to refine our lifestyle and design our destiny, including our destiny in the afterlife. He elaborates on the subject of consciousness, the role of evolution, and explains what happens to us at the time of birth and death—and how we can act in those pivotal moments when life takes a turn.
Gautam Padmanabhan, CEO, Westland Publications Pvt. Ltd. says, ‘We are thrilled with the success of The Heartfulness Way and hope to spread Daaji’s word to a larger audience with this book. It’s an honour to publish Daaji and I am sure his books will connect with readers across the length and breadth of the world.’
