Designing Destiny, the Heartfulness Way: a new book launched


Daaji’s second book enters the market after the resounding success of The Heartfulness Way

Chandigarh, February 14, 2019: Designing Destinyhas hit the stands of all major bookstores etc. It is by renowned spiritual leader and bestselling author of The Heartfulness Way, Daaji (Kamlesh Patel), the Heartfulness guide.

His first book, a number one bestseller on the HT Nielsen Bookscan Service chart and on in 2018, focused on the meditation practices of Heartfulness, whereas Designing Destiny puts these practices into the context of lifestyle. The book is launched in association with Westland Publications Pvt. Ltd.

Daaji says, ‘We have tremendous freedom to design our destiny. If destiny were fixed, why would we work? Why would young people study, as the knowledge would come anyway if it is in their destiny? If someone is supposed to become the PM, do they need to campaign before an election? All these activities would be redundant… Destiny is a very complex thing. Some part of it is fixed, just like our genetic expression. We have a fixed genome and nothing can be done about it. But there is an epigenome, which can be changed because it is susceptible to outer circumstances.’

“In this book we explore the meditative practices in the light of this larger context—that of destiny. There is also a lot about lifestyle: how to manage personal behaviour, anger, fear, relationships, decision-making abilities, and many other life skills. We explore fundamental aspects of well-being, like healthy sleep patterns, heartful communication, eating patterns, living in tune with natural cycles and so on.’

Gautam Padmanabhan, CEO, Westland Publications Pvt. Ltd. says, ‘We are thrilled with the success of The Heartfulness Way and hope to spread Daaji’s word to a larger audience with this book. It’s an honour to publish Daaji and I am sure his books will connect with readers across the length and breadth of the world.’
