Book Title: A Dewdrop in the Ocean
Desc:

The stories contained in this book are all linked to the over-arching theme of Awareness. The book is made up of a large number of stories thematically organised under various topics of daily living such as relationships, emotions, judgments, helping, suffering, leadership, stillness, and so on. The diversity of stories under each theme covers different aspects and offers and numerous perspectives to interest and benefit a large variety of readers.
The stories centre around the sage who is not a single individual but someone who gives expression to the collective wisdom of humanity. So he is a Hindu, Christian, Buddhist, Sufi, Taoist and so on. His voice carries the teachings of the Buddha and Jesus, Ramesh Balsekar, J Krishnamurti, Tony de Mello and a host of others.
Though these stories carry perennial wisdom, it takes a considerable depth of understanding and creativity to make the sage speak to the experience of people in our time. That is why the stories indeed have a great resonance for readers and are capable of evoking experience of quiet reflections and transformations.
