Asking questions is an important part of learning as it provides a unique framework for thinking and opens doors to unexpected revelations for us. Digging into how or why things are the way they are, paves the way for enlightenment.
On the contrary, keeping the doubts to ourselves can keep us from the truth, thus depriving us of valuable opportunities life has to offer. As human beings, we must enquire and keep doing so. But what kind of enquiries are we supposed to make?
In Ask the Monk, celebrated monk Nityanand Charan Das lucidly answers over seventy frequently asked questions-by young and old alike-on topics such as karma, religion versus spirituality, mind, God, destiny, the purpose of life, suffering, rituals, religion, wars and so on. These answers are extremely crucial to help you, the reader, embark on the journey of self-discovery and self-realization.
About the Author
Nityanand Charan Das is a practising monk at the Sri Sri Radha Gopinath Temple, ISKCON Chowpatty, Mumbai, and a visionary who wishes to revolutionize the current urban scenario by aiding people to lead a life of purpose, fulfilment and satisfaction. He also specializes in guiding today's youth to reconnect with their roots and lead a simple yet happy life.
Coming from an army background, Nityanand Charan Das's childhood desire was to become an army officer. However, Krishna had other plans for him and orchestrated his life beautifully. Life led him to fail the NDA interview, despite being one of the best in the group; he took up engineering instead, and eventually became a monk when he was just twenty-four years old.
Nityanand Charan Das focuses on making the sacred teachings of our holy scriptures simple so they resonate with anyone and everyone. His message is simple: 'Spiritual life is not a life of rejection. It is a life of the connection.' He says we do not have to give up anything, we simply have to add this valuable dimension to our life.
His divine radiance can be felt far and wide: his discourses are heard in every major city in India and in more than fifty countries across the globe.
