With his latest book ‘Life Mantras’, Subrata Roy Sahara, billionaire, business tycoon and philanthropist adds another feather to his cap by turning Author & Philosopher.
‘Life Mantras’ is the first of the trilogy 'Thoughts from Tihar'. The other two books in the trilogy are 'Think with Me' and 'Reflections from Tihar’.
In this book, Saharasri talks about finding true happiness and contentment within oneself and not with the World.
In today’s fast-moving world, where we don’t have time to stop and think, there is so much negativity around us. The lack of positivity gives rise to emotions like anger, jealousy and insecurity. With this book, Saharasri talks about ways of dealing with these obstacles using love, respect, knowledge, hard work, motivation and so on. Anybody can live a peaceful, happy and contented life even by slightly changing one’s attitude, slightly shifting one’s priorities and by making a few behavioural adaptations.
To quote the author, “After having gone through the book, you will definitely and convincingly realize that to achieve peace, true happiness, contentment, satisfaction and also to attain continuous progress in life in terms of material gains, respect and love, you need not depend on anybody in this world. It all depends on you. It is all in your hands.”
In his book, ‘Life Mantras’, the author goes on to explain that to make life truly beautiful, one also needs to understand the basic truths with which we are born with. As we make sense of these basic truths, we will slowly find a change, a sense of fulfilment, a self-motivation coming within us. And thus lead us to the ultimate realization that the journey of life is a blissful and an enlightening experience.
In 1978, Saharasri laid the foundation of Sahara India Pariwar with a mere capital of Rs.2000 (about $32) and three workers. Today, thirty-eight years later, the company’s net worth is a whopping Rs.1,80,000 crores (about $27 billion)! It takes a pioneer to have such Vision!
Be it his philosophy of ‘Collective Materialism’ which means continuous collective growth for collective sharing and caring or his disciplined and focused way of living, Saharasri has been an inspiration to every budding entrepreneur in the country along with being a teacher, guide and proud guardian to his over 1.2 million fellow workers.
Here is hoping that with his book ‘Life Mantras’ this Pioneer and Visionary inspires the world with his Pearls of wisdom just like he always has!
