‘Third Eye’ is a fascinating and captivating book written by Swami Paripoornanada Saraswathi focusing on the spiritual and humanistic dimensions of an undisputed political leader of India, Narendra Modi. Examined in the book are his childhood experiences, his school days, how he helped his father to sell tea for livelihood, his marriage, how he left his wife to fine the truth in Himalayas, how he met so many spiritual leaders, and how he developed keen interest in serving the people with a spiritual eye.
As a Chief Minister, how he transformed the state of Gujarat, how he handled the controversy of Godhra riots, how he maintained composure and coolness in face of harshest criticism, and he his spiritual strength reflected them to his advantage, are brilliantly enumerated in the book.
It is hoped that it will inspire the youngsters to follow him as a role model in developing the attitude of manava seva (serving the mankind) with a spiritual eye to establish dharmic principles in Bharath. Swami Paripoornanada is commended for bringing out this timely and highly valuable book on Narendra Modi whose time has come as a newly elected Prime Minister to bring much needed changes.
The book ‘THIRD EYE’ was released on 21 June 2014 at Herndon High School, 700 Bennett Street, Herndon, VA 20170.
