Chinmaya Literature


Understand your mind and you understand life. Wisdom lies in reaching this state of maturity, where we accept life as it is, without a single word of complaint, whether our problems stem at the physical or mental level. Conscious Living is a compilation of various articles that inspire us to discover the joy of life, that expresses itself as our thoughts, emotions, feelings and intelligence. However, the desire to live as the limited self is the nature of the ignorant while the pursuit to discover the eternal Self is the nature of the wise.

This book deals with questions like:
  • What is death?
  • How to share and care?
  • How to accept life as it is?
  • How to gain control of the mind?
  • How to lead a life of inspiration?
  • How to develop a vision in our life?
  • How to evolve from ordinary to extraordinary?
