A journey of self-discovery
‘Tatah kim? Tatah kim?’ asked Adi Shankara, centuries ago. What then? Is making money the be-all and end-all of life?
The answer to that question cannot really be found in our diary entries or our schedule of appointments! Our activities cannot indicate the answer either. It is a question that forces one to reflect on the ultimate goal one has set for oneself.
In What Then, J.P. Vaswani expertly illustrates the importance of taking a step back and evaluating life. Are we living in order to die? Or are we living to exist? Or to eat, drink and be merry for we may die soon? Even in the frenetic pursuit of targets and goals, we need to pause and reflect on where we are headed, where our life is taking us, or, where we are trying to reach with our hectic efforts!
What then? Where does one go from here?
