In Digvijay’s Words:
Born in a middle-class family in a third-world country (India), I enjoyed doing sales (to pay bills) for several companies. Years passed like seconds as I engaged in traveling to new locations and meeting new people every day. But the more I ventured, the more I realized about the unused potential in the people of the world, the people of my country, and in me. I decided to risk everything that was loaned to me and write about the forgotten literature of India. I have inherited the culture through generations, which I believe is the only resource, the world has no match. In my second birth, I have given up the falsehood of trying and winning somebody else’s game.
“Once we become conscious, even dimly, of the Atman, the Reality within us, the world takes on a very different aspect. It is no longer a court of justice but a kind of gymnasium. Good and evil, pain and pleasure, still exist, but they seem more like the ropes and vaulting horses and parallel bars which can be used to make our bodies strong. Maya is no longer an endlessly revolving wheel of pain and pleasure but a ladder which can be climbed to consciousness of the Reality.” – Adi Shankaracharya, Shankara’s Crest Jewel of Discrimination
“Few are those who see with their own eyes and feel with their own hearts.” – Albert Einstein
I live in Bengaluru, India with my wife and my son. Nurtured by a caring family, I value emotions above all. I respect the teachers and the heroes of my country and the world. My firm belief in the Godhead and submission to the sages drive me through my deeds.
