Jay Shetty is an English Author, former monk, and life coach of the Indian Dynasty. He has been a disciple of ISKON – International Society of Krishna Consciousness. He is the author of the book “Think Like a Monk”

According to Jay, the purpose of life is not to look outside but rather to look inside. People often confuse their Passion with the Purpose of life, but it’s not exactly true. Passion is for yourself, and Purpose is to serve others. Nurture your passion, achieve it and make it a service to others, that’s what true happiness is. Passion and Purpose are interlinked.


“If you don’t sacrifice for what you want, what you want becomes the sacrifice.”
