April 2016 I am a civil engineer living in Delhi. I have been a life member of LP since its initial stages. And it has been a long sweet journey together. I was so influenced by the contents of LP which I first picked from a magazine vendor in my neighbourhood, that I was prompted to take its life membership. Ever since, my wife and I wait for the delivery of LP every month by post. We read the articles and share our views on them. LP has become as important as the daily newspaper in my home. According to me, Life Positive is not simply a monthly magazine. It is a continuous flow of wisdom that supplements our life. As for the writers, I have been smitten by all the articles of Suma Varughese, Pulkit Sharma, Jamuna Rangachari, Shameem Akhtar, and Dada J P Vaswani. The contents of LP are not reports or merely inspirational pieces of writing. These are pearls of wisdom backed up by solid experience. As for my personal life, LP helped me greatly at three crucial junctures inmy life: From 2006 to 2008 when I was riding a wave of success, unknowingly and unwittingly, I went on ego trips. Reading articles of Life Positive helped me touch ground. It was LP that infused in me the importance of humility. I was able to transcend the ego wave. It liberated me from mental slavery and brought me closer to myself. From 2011 to 2014, I went through intense personal and professional crises, moments of anxiety, stress, troubles and what not. LP was at my pillow side every night. Articles by Pulkit Sharma and Suma Varughese gave supporting insight. More often than not I rebounded with fresh energy after bouts of despondency. Life Positive was like a constant companion, whispering soft pearls of wisdom and practical philosophy in my ears. It worked on me like a family member. Finally, I saw dawn at the fag end of 2014. During 2009-2011, I had a trying time both personally and family-wise. My wife and I got a son in 2010, 12 yrs after our daughter was born in 1998. Immediately before and after our son was born, we had a very trying emotional time. Since both of us were working it became doubly difficult. Both of us read LP articles, underlined precious sentences, and shared and discussed them even at midnight. The small stories at the end of each issue are gems. LP has taught me something very important. That is – wisdom need not be preached; it can be and must be imparted in a humble, gentle, simple, consumable and delectable way so that it is experienced, lived, assimilated and enjoyed by the readers. LP has done that to me. LP has helped me broaden my mindscape, learn the art of letting go, embrace life as it is, dissolve identification with time, live life as if there is no tomorrow, and take problems merely as life situations. No other literature has helped me grow so much in life except The Resurrection by Leo Tolstoy. A copy or two of Life Positive can always be found in my office too. It works like a ready reckoner to me and many articles are densely underlined for their strong appeal. The contribution of LP in my life has been positive and profound – a comprehensive inner experience of transcendence, liberation and purposeful living. LP is not a magazine. It is a movement. – Dineshwar Gaur, New Delhi My guru dakshina I extend my heartiest congratulations to Life Positive on completing two decades of enlightening us with the most inspiring articles on life. Happy 20th Anniversary! My journey with Life Positive as my constant companion began almost at its inception. It was the first magazine of its kind which touched upon the spiritual aspect of the common man. It even prompted me to write an article in 1998 when I lost my husband, by which time it had left its indelible impact on my mind. It has been my guru, as well as the doorway to my spiritual progress. There is an article to suit every shade of the human character. Without visiting spiritual masters, I could avail and imbibe their teachings from the comfort of my home. The range of articles, always informative, positive and inspiring, have given me immense understanding, peace and happiness, while creating a path for me to follow. Every writer left his/her mark on my creative process of thinking. Even today, I have preserved the issues and love to share them with others to help solve their problems and keep them happy. Yes, LP, you have certainly helped shape my values, and changed my perception about what it means to be truly human and happy. Your place in my heart is for keeps. What guru dakshina can I now give as a diehard disciple? My dakshina is my deepest gratitude for making me what I am today. My blessings are that LP becomes one of the foremost magazines read by lay people to help manifest their own visions successfully in this life. Wishing LP a wonderfully happy and successful 20th Anniversary and many, many more! – Gitika Kaji, Mumbai Spreading positivity subtly Life Positive. The very title evoked my curiosity when I first lay my hands on a copy in the year 2009 in a bookshop. The articles it contained were so informative and profound that it changed my approach to life and thinking completely. I not only became positive but started transmitting these vibrations to all who came in contact with me. It first started with my close family, and soon started spreading among friends and associates. You can say that I have become addicted to this publication. I anxiously await the arrival of the new issue at the end of each month. This wonderful magazine is now 20 years old. I believe that it is spreading hope and positivity in the reader’s life without them even realising it because of the subtlety of the contents. Very few publications are capable of this kind of service. The articles it contains are not only gripping to read but also communicate a deep philosophical message. On this occasion when LP is celebrating its 20th anniversary, I convey my heartfelt thanks to it for making my and my family’s life positive. With fond hopes and wishes, I pray that LP’s own life becomes not only positive but ageless. God bless the entire team of Life Positive. – Krishna Singh, New Delhi Life Positive and I I have been reading Life Positive since the last seven to eight years. And it has played an important role in my life. All of us want happiness, peace, fame and money and try to get them through our jobs or vocation. However, these things are never fully within our grasp. There is something missing. This causes us stress and even affects our health. Life Positive fills this need. Regular readers of Life Positive get this education indirectly and subtly through the articles published in it. A number of excellent articles, interviews, details of seminars and workshops reported in Life Positive impart learning which is true, profound and deeply insightful. I can sum up my learning from Life Positive as under. Accept the world as it is without any grudge. Go with the flow. Suffering is universal. No one can escape them. We become sad, blame others, our luck and even God but our life situations are governed by the laws of karma. Even avatars like Ram and Krishna had to suffer. It is futile to expect things to turn out as per our wish. We have to accept the reality and then find out ways to tackle the problem. Let us not sigh, Why me? Be in the present moment. This stops vacillation of the mind. It reduces the loss of mental energy which is wasted in thinking about past hurts, mistakes, and undue worries about future. Learn to dissociate from thoughts and feelings. We are not thoughts and feelings. They arise in our minds and pass away. We should not get carried away by them. No need to shun them. Just take a note and observe them. We are travelling in our boat of life alone. We have to navigate for ourselves. There are storms, whirling waves, and strong winds of past hurts, disappointments and failures which rock our boat. Readers of Life Positive develop the right attitude and abilities to overcome these and navigate the boat of life safely. Though satsang plays importance in accellerating our spiritual development, in our busy life we hardly get an opportunity to attend satsangs. But reading Life Positive is equal to enjoying satsang in our homes. The April 2015 Anniversary issue gave us an opportunity to meet a galaxy of living saints. I was also delighted to read the following interviews. A Himalayan idyll – An excellent interview of Maa Gyan Suveera by Suma Varughese at her ashram in Rishikesh and Healer from the Himalayas by Nandini Sarkar. While discussing about mind, intellect and spirit, we cannot forget our body which is a living temple. Articles appearing in Life Positive give valuable information on proper diet and how it can help cure many diseases. We also get information about alternative systems of medicine such as accupressure, yogasanas, and pranayam. Life Positive is a complete magazine to enrich our life which helps lead a happy, peaceful and blissful life. – AS Dandekar, Mumbai From sufferer to survivor LP, for me, is not just a magazine but rather a manual for life that groomed me to shift from being a sufferer to a survivor. I was living in a victim mode desperately trying to change the situations and people around me feeling that the fault lay with others and not me. Though born a Hindu, I am a Sikh by choice, for I strongly believe in the philosophy of Sri Guru Granth Sahib. My daily Sikh prayers and monthly interactions with LP through the write-ups made me understand that we all are a part of a large Divine plan and it is only through acceptance, love and gratitude that one can find peace. Initially, I felt that LP writers did not have any personal problems hence writing about peace and forgiveness is easy for them but soon reality hit me that they too had personal issues
