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, serve 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.

“Live your life in such a way that those who know you but don’t know God, will come to know God because they know you.”

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
