Shri Jagat Singh Bisht

(Author, Blogger, Laughter Yoga Master Trainer, Behavioural Science Trainer, and Founder: LifeSkills.)

Authored six books on happiness: Cultivating Happiness, Nirvana – The Highest Happiness, Meditate Like the Buddha, Mission Happiness, A Flourishing Life, and The Little Book of Happiness.

He served in a bank for thirty-five years and has been propagating happiness and well-being among people for the past twenty years.

He is on a mission – Mission Happiness!

About the book:

Brief description:

Do you wish to prepare your child with life skills, such as, grit, optimism, resilience, growth mindset, engagement, and mindfulness?

A combination of traditional education with the study of happiness and well-being can be of great help in this regard.

Children and parents can flourish in life by practicing scientifically proven happiness activities.

The concepts are derived from Positive Psychology, the modern science of happiness and well-being, and Positive Education, an approach that focuses on specific skills that assist students to strengthen their relationships, build positive emotions, enhance personal resilience, promote mindfulness, and encourage a healthy lifestyle.

There are books for children and there are books for the grown-ups. This one is for both of them – the children and their parents. The book may also be used for implementing positive education in schools.

Introduction

Fundamentals of happiness and well-being for children and their parents

“There is no end to education. It is not that you read a book, pass an examination, and finish with education. The whole of life, from the moment you are born to the moment you die, is a process of learning.”

 – J Krishnamurti

This is a book describing the fundamentals of happiness and well-being for children and their parents. It is to be read individually as well as collectively by them so as to have a true understanding of happiness and how to flourish in life.

Usually, there are books for children, and there are books for the grown-ups. This book is different. It is for both of them – the children and their parents. Each one reads and understands from his/her own perspective and then there is friendly sharing of learning amongst them for better understanding. It creates joy and bonding. The effects on long-term happiness and well-being of the family are deep rooted and robust.

The concepts are derived from Positive Psychology – the modern science of happiness and well-being – and Positive Education – an approach to education that blends academic learning with character and well-being.

All parents want the best for their children, they want their child to be happy and flourish. However, finding the right education for their child can be a challenge.

The Geelong Grammar School in Victoria, Australia, in consultation with world experts in positive psychology, developed a model for positive education to complement traditional learning.

It is essentially an applied framework comprising six domains:

positive emotions,

positive engagement,

positive relationships,

positive purpose,

positive accomplishment,

and positive health.

Each of these six domains are explained and elaborated in the book. The emphasis is on how to cultivate each one of these practically and enhance happiness and well-being.

A good school doesn’t just aim for its students to achieve their academic potential. It also aims to develop them as caring, responsible, and ultimately productive members of society.

Positive education curriculum has been implemented with good results in schools in Australia, USA and Germany. Widespread support is necessary for the success of the positive education movement.

This book may also be used as a well-being primer by teachers and educators for implementing positive education in their schools. It will enable the students to develop an understanding of authentic happiness and flourish in life.

“God gave us the gift of life; it is up to us to give ourselves the gift of living well.”

 – Voltaire

English Literature – New Book ☆ NIRVANA – The Highest Happiness: Be A BUDDHA in the modern world ☆ Mr. Jagat Singh Bisht

☆ NIRVANA – The Highest Happiness: Be A BUDDHA in the modern world ☆ Mr. Jagat Singh Bisht ☆ 

I am happy to share with the readers and writers of e-abhivyakti that my fourth book NIRVANA – The Highest Happiness: Be A BUDDHA in the modern world is available on Amazon.

Shri Jagat Singh Bisht

(Master Teacher: Happiness & Well-Being, Laughter Yoga Master Trainer, Author, Blogger, Educator, and Speaker.)

In this book, you will find simple, effortless, and painless practices for authentic happiness, stress management, and lasting peace. These exercises are easy to do, can be taken up by anyone, and require no previous training or experience.

About the book:

The Buddha taught the Dhamma – the law of nature, the path of truth -about two thousand and five hundred years ago.

A lot of time has since elapsed, and much water has flown down the rivers. The whole world has changed drastically but the guiding principles of spirituality remain the same.

The Buddha understood that this world is in turmoil. There is stress, misery, and pain all around. The human beings are suffering.

After a long struggle for enlightenment, he arrived at the root cause of all suffering, and discovered a path leading to liberation from suffering, to peace, to happiness.

This book helps you to understand Nirvana – the culmination of the quest for perfection and happiness – and takes you on the path leading to Enlightenment.

  • It presents the Buddha’s teachings in a crystalline form and acquaints you with the quintessence of the practice of meditation.
  • It takes you on the way to the end of suffering, pain, and distress.
  • If you are seeking a stress-free life, peace of mind, and spiritual wisdom, this book would be of immense benefit.

This is the fourth book by the author on happiness.

☆ मनमंजुषेतून ☆ माझी वाटचाल…. मी अजून लढते आहे – 12 ☆ सुश्री शिल्पा मैंदर्गी ☆

सौ.अंजली गोखले 

(पूर्ण अंध असूनही अतिशय उत्साही. साहित्य लेखन तिच्या सांगण्यावरून लिखीत स्वरूपात सौ.अंजली गोखले यांनी ई-अभिव्यक्ती साठी सादर केले आहे.)

माझी एम ए अभ्यासाची घोडदौड सुरु झाली, पण मला एंट्रन्स ची परीक्षा पास झाल्याशिवाय एम ए ला प्रवेश मिळणार नव्हता.. ताईंनी माझी कसून तयारी करून घेतली आणि मी एन्ट्रन्स ही पास झाले.माझ्या मनामध्ये संमिश्र प्रकारच्या भावना होत्या. एका बाजूला उत्सुकता आणि आनंद र दुसर्‍या बाजूला अभ्यासाची जबाबदारी.एकीकडे आई-बाबांच्या तब्येतीची खूपच काळजी लागून राहिली होती.तसं बघायला गेलं तर ताईंना आणि मला ना हे शिवधनुष्य पेलायचे होतं आणि आम्ही ते यशस्वीपणे पेललही !

नृत्याच्या सुरूवातीच्या दिवसातला आणि आत्ता चा अभ्यास,रियाज यामध्ये जमीन अस्मानाचा फरक होता.आता शारीरिक आणि मानसिक हालचालींच्या माध्यमांमधून प्रेक्षकांपर्यंत भावभावना पोहोचवायच्या होत्या.शारीरिक हालचाली म्हणजे अंग, प्रत्यांग आणि उपांग.अर्थात हात पाय मस्तक ही अंगे,हाताचे पंजे बोटे कोपरे खांदे ही प्रत्यां गेआणि डोळे डोळे पापण्या ओठ, नाक, हनुवटी ही उपांगे.यांच्या हलचाली मधून आणि आणि मनामध्ये उठणाऱ्या भावतरंग यांमधून अभिनय सहज आणि सोप्या माध्यमातून मला प्रेक्षकांपर्यंत पोचवायचा होता.अर्थातच हे माझ्यासाठी खूप कठीण होते आणि त्यामध्ये मनाच्या एकाग्रतेची गरज होती.

नृत्याच्या सुरुवातीच्या काळामध्ये ताई मला स्पर्शाने मुद्रा शिकवत असत.त्याचे एक सांकेतिक भाषा ठरलेली असे. स्पर्शाने मुद्रा जाणून हे मी सहज आत्मसात केले होते आणि ती सवय माझ्या अंगवळणी पडली होती. आता मात्र मला नृत्यातल्या, अभिनयाचे कौशल्य, त्यातली खुबी अधिक सफाईदारपणे प्रेक्षकांच्या मनावर बिंबेलअशा पद्धतीने मांडायची होती आणि तीही संगीताचा आधार घेऊन.कारण नृत्याच्या सुरुवातीच्या काळामध्ये एखादी शेजारी उभी असणारी व्यक्ती मला दोन हात बाजूला करून, नुसते बोट दाखवूनही दाखवता येत असे. पण आता मात्र या दोन्ही बरोबर मान आणि नजर त्या बाजूला चेहऱ्यावरील हावभाव सहित प्रेक्षकांना ती दाखवायची होती. माझ्या बाबतीत नजर हा मुद्दा नव्हताच मुळी. फोन मला परीक्षक आणि प्रेक्षक यांना ही गोष्ट अजिबात जाणवू न देता माझी कला, नृत्य सादर करायचे होते. त्यातही मी बाजी मारली.

माझ्या या अभ्यासाला मला सर्वात जास्त आवडलेली रचना म्हणजे अभिनयावर आधारित असलेले “कृष्णा  नी बेगनी बारू” (कन्नड – अर्थ – कृष्णा तू माझ्याकडे ये.) या रचनेमध्ये मला यशोदेच्या मनातील भाव, मातृत्वाच्या भावभावना, बालकृष्णाच्या अवखळ लीलाअभिनयातून रंगवायच्या होत्या. यात बालकृष्ण रुसलेला आहे आणि त्याला मनविण्यासाठी यशोदा माता कधी लोण्याचा गोळा दाखवते तर कधी झेंडू खेळायला बोलावते. तर बाल कृष्ण तिला आपल्या अवखळपणानी

सतावतो आणि शेवटी त्याच्याच मुखात तिला म्हणजे मातेला विश्वदर्शन ही घडवतो. या दोन्ही भावभावना वेगळेपणाने दाखवणे ही माझ्यासाठी तारेवरची कसरत होती. मी ती नृत्यामध्ये रंगून जाऊन, तन मन अर्पून केली आणि त्या  अभिनयासाठी फक्त परिक्षकानीच नाही तर प्रेक्षकांनी सुद्धा भरभरून दाद दिली.

☆ Book-Review/Abstract ☆ Avyakhyaam – The Unexplainable ☆ 

Well, during lock-down when I was stuck in Delhi alone. One night I decided to watch some old horror show on internet. Yes, I was alone when during show light gone and I heard some unusual sound.

☆  Excerpts from the book  -Mythology ☆

Shail is a writer who mainly writes for stage drama, is sitting with some friends and drinking wine in his home at night. One of his friends asked, “Dear Shail, I remember well that you were an Atheist, non-believer of God, but now you write stories only based on Mythology, and get success because of those stories. How did this happen? Are you now believing in God or finally understand that in India, mostly people’s first love is still mythological stories?”

Shail laughed, and then said, “No, my dear friends, I am still an atheist, but know that in India people can do anything in the name of God.”

Another friend of Shail, name Kapil asked, “But you hate Mythology, then why and how did you start writing those types of stories?”

Shail said, “This is a great secret which no one knows, but you all are my very good friends, so I am going to tell you. Listen carefully. In college one day, Kapil and I had an argument at a tea stall outside the college. Kapil, that time you said that Shail you chose writing as your profession. It is very good and I am very excited. Dear Shail, your first story must be based on some Mythological character. Do you remember what I replied at that time? I said that you are stupid, all those stories and characters are fiction, and created by many intelligent people at different times to fool people. All Gods, Goddess, nothing actually exists, and If you ask me, that anyone thing which I hate most, are India’s Mythological stories. I’ll never waste my words on them. After listing this you went inside the college to attend a lecture, and I was also about to depart but someone kept his right hand over my solider. I turned around and saw a very old person who wore orange clothes and sun-marks over his forehead, long grey beard, and a smiling face, called in his pleasant voice. “So, you don’t believe in God and are going to make a career in story writing. Then my wishes to you. You will make a good career as a writer but remember, you will get success only if you write Mythological stories and you think all Gods and Mythological stories and characters are fiction. So remember, that from every Mythological story that you write, one character or incidence will take real form from your story when that story is performed on stage or shot in a film. You will never know which incidence or character will go live from your story till it actually performs.

Read Mythology in Avyakhyaam

☆ Book Review – Lines of Fate: First Love and Other Stories by Ms. Neelam Saxena Chandra

Lines of Fate: First Love and Other Stories by AKS Publishing House written by Ms. Neelam Saxena Chandra

Often a simple encounter on the path of life can change one’s entire future. “Lines of Fate” by Neelam Saxena Chandra is a collection of such selected, distinctive and unique tales from different walks of life. She has come with this unique collection of short stories to entertain the readers.

When a dice is rolled, one does not know what the outcome will be. Similarly, in an encounter between people, the aftermath is simply indefinite and unidentifiable. Maybe, the lines of fate decide the final outcome. Twists and turns are a part and parcel of each of these stories, written in simple, easy-to-read and lucid language.

We are pleased to reproduce the Book Review by an enlightened reader Mr Javvad Rizvi, Age 33, Bhopal. He is GIS executive at MAPIT Center Bhopal.

Synopsis –

Lines of Fate by Neelam Saxena is a Short book contains 16 short stories. As I usually prefer reading short fiction this is the perfect book for short story lovers. In this book, the Author did a great job of explaining her point of view in the form of short tales that can be read by anybody without experiencing any boredom. Each and every story has lots of twists and turns in it. Out of 16 stories, I found some of them are really heart touching for me but some are just Okay but those stories contain some morals or messages for readers.

Each and every story comprises of lots of feelings and emotions which either makes you Happy or makes you Cry. Author plot each story in a very unique manner to catch their readers until the end of the book. The characterization of the personalities in this book has plotted very clearly by the Author. The twists and turns in every story make it more engaging and intriguing.

Each and every story seems realistic. This is the perfect book for beginners in the field of reading. I am really impressed with Authors work of writing this great book and never get enough of it. I must say i want more from the writer of this book to write more stories like this and entertain the readers with your writing concept.
