About the Book:
A true integration of body, mind and heart (soul/spirit) is one of the most challenging tasks of our times. In fact, their disharmony and non-integration is not only afflicting the human life but also the entire cosmic order. Worldly success and material gains have become the secular gods of today. As such they are presenting the greatest obstacles to an integrated and holistic life. ‘Integrating Body, Mind and Heart’ is designed to delineate the various dimensions of this problem. It also reviews and revivifies a number of ways and means to bring about such integration.

Tales of the Mahatma

Tales of the Mahatma
Narayanbhai Desai’s ‘Gandhi Katha’ fascinated the audience with its riveting anecdotes

Narayan Desai

For five days from October 2, Narayanbhai Desai kept the audience that filled Gandhi Sewa Mandir Hall in Bandra glued to their seats with his narration of Gandhi Katha. It was a story that most people knew in broad strokes, but had never heard told in quite this intimate, passionate and engrossing fashion. Gandhi knew me before I knew him, Narayanbhai began. 

Son of Gandhi’s secretary Mahadevbhai, he based his quizzical claim on the fact that Gandhi had held him as a baby when he didn’t know who Gandhi was. As every teacher who has ever stepped before a crowded class knows, if he is to turn diverse ears into a single focused ear, he needs to be a performer.

Gandhi Before India

Written By : Ramchandra Guha

First Edition : October 2013

About the Book:
In 1893, when Mohandas Gandhi set sail for South Africa, he was a 23-year-old briefless lawyer who had failed to establish himself in India. The two decades that he spent in South Africa were to be the making of the Mahatma. In this remarkable biography, Ramachandra Guha argues that Gandhi's ideas were fundamentally shaped before his return to India in 1915.
