FREE eBook! The 8 pillars of lasting happiness

Guys I have some good news, I have just finished working on my first eBook! It took me around 2 months to create this small guide. It is now complete(finally!) and available free.

What does the book contain?

The book is titled, The Eight Pillars of Lasting Happiness. As the name suggests, it contains 8 principles to follow, in order to create lasting happiness. This is not the fleeting happiness you get when you buy something new, or travel for a vacation, or get a promotion… These principles bring you lasting happiness that stays. They create a sense of elation, well being, peace and joy that becomes a part of your nature.

It is a small eBook with about 30 pages of information. It also has some ‘to-dos’ and some new habits to form.

There are no quick fixes here, there are no magic pills. The book suggests changes in certain habits and creation of some new habits. It is not all tough though. In fact, you will enjoy some of the details and exercises included in the book, like deciding on work that you love doing, spending time in imagining your dream state of happiness etc.

Among the things discussed are money, career, health, intuition, love, purpose, thoughts, habits, awareness, simplicity, handling failure and struggle.

What does a subscription entail?

Why am I giving it away for free?

This book is the first in a series of eBooks and books that I intend to write. With this first book, I intend to touch the lives of as many people as possible. So I am giving it away for free to whoever is interested. In return, I would appreciate your feedback on the book, at this link.

I have realized that happiness is the central pursuit of human existence. I myself have sought it for long, in different things – I completed my studies, got into a job, changed jobs, moved to the United States from India, changed more jobs, sought higher and higher salaries, lived a luxurious life in New York for 3 years, then left it all and moved back to India, became a writer… all in the pursuit of happiness.

I am no Master or Guru, and I don’t have all the answers. But I think the experiences I have had, and the lessons I have learned in my pursuit can give some useful pointers to others on the same path. I realize my purpose as ‘Living a conscious life and helping others do the same’. In that spirit, I present this eBook to all of you, to derive motivation, pointers and information from.

May you all pursue your goal relentlessly and may you discover your true self in this pursuit.

Best of Luck!
