After 45years of walking a universal path, made up of crazy paving, I have suddenly come to realise that there is a more structured route to life, although, I am still seeking some rational for explaining its meaning and purpose! following some recent trips to Thailand and Myanmar I have taken a healthy interest in Buddhism and Hinduism. It really is a breath of fresh air to have a clear focus in life, and one I can truely give thanks to these faiths for. As a beginner I decide to purchase this book a few months ago, and do not regret it one bit. The book takes you on a days car journey through a traffic jam in Mumbai. The journey is shared by a monk and his close capitalist friend. During the day long car crawling trip across town the Monk takes his friend on an anecdotal spiritual journey, were he explains 4 very simple principles to living a selfless but enriched life.
It is very cleverly written, telling the story of this journey, and how the Monk portrays the concept of spirituality to his friend, however, the genius in this writing is how it is clearly aimed at the reader! The Monk takes you, the reader, through a journey of living a more universal path, with lots of suttle anecdotes, twists and turns, sprinkled with the odd touch of humour, and occassional 'oh yes that is true' moment!
Great read, great author, great price!

Thank you Guar Gopal DasReviewed in the United Kingdom on 20 July 2020
This book is an easy read and a life changer. It gives a new perspective to ideas that those who are well invested in their spirituality might be aware of. Adds workable tips for day to day life as well. I have not yet finished the book but I had to put it down to write this review.

Buy life amazing secret by gaur gopal das and don't waste 1400 on this book.Reviewed in India on 26 September 2020
This book is exactly same as the book Life's amazing secrets by gaur gopal das itself, word to word. I purchased that book for only Rs 235 and loved the book, so thought to buy the new book of this author and gain more perspective, but I found out that this book which costs 1400/- is exactly the same as the book which was published earlier for 235/- with a different cover page and title, but the contents are the same.
Waste of 1400/-.

Good read !Reviewed in the United States on 1 September 2020
Exact same content as kindle edition of Life’s Amazing secret! Something is wrong. Now I the hardcover book of this title and the kindle edition of the other book. And it’s exactly same chapters and content. How is it possible?
