New Delhi– Contemporary and internationally respected spiritual teacher Nithya Shanti unveils the art of letting go and returning to a ‘zero state’, a state of mind that has only intentions and no desires, in “Call Your Own Bluff: An Incredible Journey to Your True Freedom” (Penguin) as he guides you on the road to spiritual awareness — all the more necessary in these pandemic times.
Nithya Shanti is an XLRI graduate and corporate employee-turned-Buddhist monk-turned-spiritual teacher whose self-appointed aim in life is spreading happiness. With this book, Nithya Shanti and co-author Nandini Sen Mehra, recipient of the Reuel International Poetry Prize, 2020, for Best Upcoming Poet, present a simple, easily digestible way to spiritual awareness and growth that paradoxically begins with the idea of unravelling and letting go, essentially returning to a ‘zero state’.
It’s a perfect book for everyone, beginners and practitioners, who are looking for spiritual guidance and clarity of thought to be able to live their lives to the fullest potential. A ready reckoner, it is a concentration of spiritual thoughts and practice gathered from Buddhist philosophy as well as from many teachers and philosophies from around the world.
It has the potential to act as a spiritual guide and a map that will gently and playfully bring us back to ourselves as we cope with the new normal in a post-pandemic world.
