My Remarks – awesome! you aren’t going to miss it!
How many days do we get interesting books to read? Well, some people might be lucky and some might just be unlucky here. However, I will count myself in whenever there is the matter of luck because, recently, I got to read a book by author and spiritually awakened person, Ananda Karunesh. This book by him, titled A Thousand Seeds of Joy, has something just so amazing which caught my eyes instantly. The author says that the book by him is actually a conversation that he had with the Goddesses worshipped by billions across the world – Lakshmi and Saraswati. So, wasn’t I supposed to be surprised as well as astonished? I felt the both…
Now, coming to the content of the book, I am certain that the matters discussed in the book cannot be discussed by the usual people like me and the readers who will read the book. We have our share of works to do and our share of job to handle. People like Ananda Karunesh can surely have time to find an inner self who is rather a higher being, someone who is able to establish that connection with the divinity and actually hold a conversation… the level of wisdom and the level of arguments that I read in the book A Thousand Seeds of Joy were just more than simply being of a higher degree!
Ananda has divided the book into various chapters and each of them discusses various issues. The Goddess and the author indulge in a conversation which is very significant for the masses to read and to ponder. From the book, I learnt many new concepts about my own religion which I did not think in the past. Let alone the belief (whether the author really talks to the divine or not) you have many things to enjoy and to learn in this book. The content gives the readers new perspectives to think and rethink on various issues. Was Ravana really an evil? Was Sita really left by Rama? Was Buddha justified in letting himself alone for the spiritual journey? What was the first sin by the mankind according to Christianity?
If you give it a careful observation, you will realise that the book has been divided into seven different sections and each section has chapters which follow a pattern or a title. Out of these sections, I insist people on carefully reading these ones – The truth about Mary, Eve and Sita, The Feminine Wisdom of Mahabharata, The Path of Joy… all others are also very fine in tone and rich in wisdom, however, the ones I mentioned are rather interesting and amazing. You will have the opportunity to know about these from the Goddess herself and I am sure you will also believe that the Goddess does say these things… the authority and conviction in the text are easily visible and apparently experienced!
On the seamy side of this very good book, there might be the readers for whom the book would mean nothing. They might subdue it by saying that it does not bring anything special or it’s just about the falsehoods or just random ideas put together by the author and named as Goddesses speaking things up. Well, there are always the people for whom every creation means the opposite and they are free to do so. However, after reading the content completely, I am sure, there will be very few of the readers who won’t be happy and rich in their thinking about the world… just give it a try is the final thumbs up that I would give to my readers tonight! All the best reading A Thousand Seeds of Joy!
