Gaur Gopal Das is one of the most well-known and organized monks in the world, sharing his knowledge with millions of people around the globe. His debut book is Life’s Amazing Secrets, in which he portrays his experiences and life lessons in a well-structured way. This book will help you arrange yourself with the life you want to live and not regret later.
I came to know about Gaur Gopal Das when one of my friends forwarded his viral video on Whatsapp. I was really fascinated by his sense of humor and perspective. Ultimately, I went on YouTube and saw multiple videos by him. I came to know about his first book Life’s Amazing Secrets. I thought of reading this book and bought it from Amazon.
While cruising their way through Mumbai’s dreadful traffic, Gaur Gopal Das and his rich young friend Harry discusses the approaches ranging from finding one’s purpose in life and the secret of staying happy.
In case you are looking at nourishing your relationships, finding your true potential, understanding how to do well at work or even how you can give back to society, Das takes us on an unforgettable journey with his precious insights into these areas of life.
In fact, in this book, Das talks about the 4 wheels that make an individual more peaceful and happier. These are Personal life, Relationships, Work-life, and Social Contribution. He talks on how to keep them balanced to live a life full of ethics and values.
One of the best illustrations in this book which I loved the most is of an Ice-cream and a candle. He beautifully explains whether you can be one or try to achieve other in the long run. Candle melts but enlightens others. On the other hand, Ice-cream melts over time without benefiting to a large audience. Before melting takes place, try to change. This book is filled with a lot of illustrations on how to live life with a particular purpose and in a systematic manner. Also, you will find a very powerful quote before every new chapter starts and a summary in the end for better understanding.
Altogether, it’s an amazing book and can surely help you enlighten yourself. The language is super easy. It took me 3 days to complete this book. I was hooked to the book because of its use of simple language to explain complex things in life. I highly recommend you to read Life’s Amazing Secrets. You would definitely love it.
Last but not least, I loved one of the quotes from the book. “Stop going through life, Start growing through life!”
