Gaur Gopal Das is an Indian monk related to ISKCON – International Society for Krishna Consciousness. He is an Electrical Engineer by Profession. He has written two books-

1. Life’s amazing secrets: How to find balance and purpose in your life.

Happiness He gives various seminars on Life events, Spirituality, Relationships, Work-life, and Social contribution. He smartly says in each of his seminars – Stop going through life, Start growing through life!

He touches on a very sensitive part of life’s where one can easily connect such as Forgiveness, Why worry, Spiritual Practice, Growing through Gratitude.

He puts in a role as Purpose of life, where he says living with Gratitude, Compassion, Understanding, and Integrity are part of life, and having those qualities will lead you to find the meaning of life. The purpose of life is to live life like a candle, light to others before it melts. The ideology behind this is being selfless, serving others while you will lighten within. He quotes an example from the Former President of India – Dr. APJ Abdul Kalamji said – ”I may not be handsome, but if I gave my hand to some to help them I will definitely be handsome.” Therefore, he concludes by saying When “I” turns into “We”, illness turns into Wellness. “Serving others” is the ultimate purpose of life.

In my view – He is the most loved monk among youth. He makes it easy to practice spirituality in daily life, which helps you in your relationship with family and everywhere. I named him as “Engineer of Monk”, in engineering we have to check each device to be in a working model to build a successful instrument, same as with life, we have to see each part of life works properly in a relationship, work, Spirituality, Self-journey, etc

Comment – Gaur Gopal Das explains very nicely that our life is our choice to live in. We have complete authority to make our choice, how our behavior should be in any condition. Birth and Death are not in our control however, how to live between birth and death is our choice.
Comment- Gopaldasji explains how judging anyone from our own perspective will lead ourselves in a mess. By judging others, we block our mind limitations. We are not allowing our mind to go beyond the horizon. StopJudging others, it’s not healthy for anyone.
Comment – This video is about understanding that Happiness is found within the inner self not outside from others or in objects. It’s completely on us to be happy or sad in any situation. Finding happiness by depending on others will always lead to misery.
Comment- Very wise statement by Gaur Gopal Dasji, ‘It’s not Standard of life that makes us happy, it’s the standard of life that makes us happy’ People are more interested in buying materialistic objects than investing in inner self.
Comment- Each little effort is counted, no matter its taking trash out of home/city. We should have a vision of seeing beyond the mind, we are not just working, we are making a difference, that should be the approach in every individual.
