Descrizione

This book is about understanding of the self and knowing our conditioning, our values, our relationships and then finding what we are without all that. An understanding of the self then makes one aware that what we think we are is nothing but our conditioning and the images of the past. A realization of this illusion leads one to compassion and a different outlook to life. This book is about me questioning various aspects of my life in all honesty and putting down my thoughts.

Informazioni sull'autore

Mahendra Kent was brought up in humble surroundings in India where he gained the skills of survival under difficult and at times harsh circumstances. He has been fortunate enough to experience, the poverty and affluence both but somehow he associates himself with the so called “gutters” of India. According to him, one can see both the ugliness and the beauty of life in those gutters. At times, there is that inner desire to return back there. Although an engineer by profession and necessity, he has been a free thinker by choice. Mahendra has lived on four continents and shared his life with people from different cultures, religions and socio-economic backgrounds learning about life from all aspects. The content of this book have evolved through observation and questioning of life.

MY GRATITUDE

I express my gratitude to my parents Gurcharan Singh Kent and Jagjeet Kaur Kent for providing us with a non-religious and non-conditioning environment when we were growing up. I was permitted to look at life without any prejudice. I am indebted to my wife, Vaty, for her support and who also ensured that my ego was always kept in check. I thank my sisters Hem and Kiran, my two children Neha and Nikhil, my nephew Christopher and my niece Nidhi for being part of my life and contributing to my happiness. My special thanks to Marek Lepkowski, Ranjit Bhambri and Indira Bhambri.

PREFACE

Life can only be understood by living it. Most of us are too scared to live, choosing instead to exist by following the lives of others, merely imitating and conforming. Our lives seem to be directed by others to seek goals defined by society rather than following our natural instincts and tendencies. We seem to shackle ourselves and then find it very hard to break out, putting ourselves in the hands of destiny and fate, accepting life without making
