Synopsis: Life is not by chance but shaped by challenges. Every challenge forces one to change; change is unavoidable. Change can also cause upheaval.


As a homemaker, professional, parent, student and a member of the community, how can we deal with the inevitable changes around and within oneself? How is peace to be found in the face of conflict and competition? How can we remain happy always? What can anchor us perennially in contentment?


A collection of bite-size, thought-provoking snippets of Vedantic philosophy, the book allows readers to flip open any page and learn about life’s purpose by using easily relatable examples from daily life.
