From the Publisher

The author of the book 'Life Is Love, Enjoy It!' Mrs. Joy Thomas and her husband ventured to India, looking for a living Master in their quest for Knowledge about the purpose of life. Both, staunch Christians, were from working class families and were brought up by loving parents who valued duty, morality, and service to others.
When they first heard of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba in 1983, they felt that the ultimate grace that could be won in a life time was showered on them by a miracle. The pure divine sparks in their hearts attracted Bhagawan who showered His divine grace and love and guided them in their spiritual evolution.

The words of Bhagawan Baba, "Life is a challenge, meet it; Life is love, enjoy it; Life is a dream, realise it; Life is a game, play it," created immense joy in the author and prompted her to write a series of four books with those divine phrases as titles, under the inspiration of Bhagawan.

There are experiences in the book like the one in which the doctor attending to her hot swollen leg was overjoyed one morning, on seeing sudden improvement, and said, "It is dramatically better." It was Baba's grace. The leg, which did not respond to any medicine, was cured by her application of vibhuthi over it from a packet that mysteriously plopped on the floor of her room on the previous night, which the doctor was not aware. There are experiences through which lessons were learnt to enjoy life, to expand one's love towards all, to meet challenges in life. She firmly believed that life is love and we can enjoy it.

This is the fourth book in the 'Life Is...' series. Each of these books is standalone and can be read without reading the entire series.

ELIZABETH DIAS What has surprised you about the response to your newest book, Becoming Wise: An Inquiry Into the Mystery and Art of Living? Even in early 2016, people were so weary—sore inside. In the 24/7 news environment, people are bombarded with the same story of what is catastrophic and corrupt and failing 25 times before lunch. They start to internalize that not as news but as the norm. An effect I see on people in conversations that came up around the book is, there are actually so many beautiful, generative things happening in the world. How did America get to this place of such divi

A Nation Apologises for Wrongdoing: Is That a Category Mistake?

From childhood, we are taught that our actions can cause harm. In our personal lives, we know that the health and integrity of our relationships are fragile. When harm has been done, it is as if the relationship walks with a stone in its shoe, ever stumbling a little. If it is ever to amble along nicely again, the person who committed the wrongful act must face those she hurt, acknowledge her responsibility, and apologise. What about when nations do harm? Can national apologies accomplish anything and, if so, how? The transformative power of apologies, both individual and collective, lies in t

This Founder's Meditation Startup Draws Cult Demand: How She Did It

“I opened Unplug for selfish reasons,” says Suze Yalof Schwartz of her modern meditation studio in Los Angeles. In 2012, she was stressed -- a mother of three shuttling for work between New York City and L.A. She was curious about meditation, but classes required weeks of commitment. What she really wanted was “a quick fix of calm” -- so she built it. Now in its third year, Unplug has amassed a cult following, and Schwartz “has a folder of a thousand people who want to franchise it.” Here’s how she did it: Schwartz took Deepak Chopra’s class, visited Buddhist temples and enrolled in a Vedic me
