R.R. Bowker, the world's leading company for book information and the official U.S.A. agency for assigning ISBN, posted its following unbiased review of Building a Noble World at bookwire.com:
Building a Noble World addresses the key post-modern political issues that hinder world peace. At a time when the world faces acute problems of terrorism, cross-border conflicts, racial and religious differences, Shiv R. Jhawar offers us a path to emerge from this darkness and move towards world peace and unity. The issue of terrorism that has intensified, especially after the 9/11 attacks in the United States, is also well tackled. Jhawar states that its root cause is the condition of the human mind, which must be improved in order to overcome crime and war. In order to spread harmony and prosperity, we must be able to connect with the spirit within each of us and must rise above social, political and racial biases by accepting, respecting and celebrating diversity in all walks of life.
Building a Noble World gives an insight into Yoga as a means to attain inner peace. It also discusses varied subjects such as religion, spirituality, meditation and the author's experiences of shaktipat in which you transcend your physical body and mind, and experience absolute reality.
Jhawar offers simple yet profound solutions to global political issues such as the ongoing crisis in Kashmir and the possibility of unifying the Indian subcontinent for promoting regional economic prosperity. While striving in a quest for global harmony, the author recognizes the indispensable role played by the United Nations for negotiating and tackling cross-border issues.
The central theme of the book revolves around the importance of attaining inner peace and the unification of humanity for attaining world peace. It guides humanity towards peaceful co-existence. It is a well-researched, easy to read book with sound concepts, as well as quotes from renowned world leaders and spiritual masters. Insightful, inspiring and practical, Building a Noble World is a book that promotes world peace and adds value to life.

That said, in reading, "Building A Noble World", one comes to recognize that its author, Shiv R. Jhawar, is himself a "noble" human being; in that, a finely-tuned and tempered quality of higher thought pervades his writing. Recall the playful school-age axiom (albeit with a delightfully convenient twist that occured to me!): If A, (noble-minded Author), writes B, (a Book based upon such noble thought), then C, (the Consciousness of the reader of that book) is enobled too. For, they all tap into, and parktake of, one higher stream of consciousness (and, after all science is stating this is so. But, before science even existed as a discipline, spiritual sages taught likewise)....
Building A Noble World-- although it covers much exploratory ground that might seem too various, or perhaps in some other way, too particularized to a special audience (in the eyes of the casual reader)-- nevertheless, has a way of weaving it all together, and arriving at the heart of the matter. Like the concept of a hologram, readers can extrapolate the whole throughout all the diverse sections of this book-- (e.g. in the homage the author pays to great beings of wisdom at the forefront of human evolution, the inspiring quotes, the inter-lacing of historical events of certain cultures, the sharing of his personal account of the transformational inner journey, etc.)--we come to recognize a cohesive element that pervades all. And, this essential unifying principle which the author repeatedly illustrates, is both touchstone and challenge for humanity-- to achieve such a level of unity amidst all the turbulence and seemingly disparate (and often desperate) realities of our post-modern world.
This touchstone, the attaining of profound inner wisdom, may just be humanity's saving grace. For, if we as individuals, can recognize and embody the power of this simple truth-- i.e., "Nothing and on-one is different from me. If I help my self, I help others; if I harm myself, I harm others"-- then, this very helping, this realization of the "Golden Rule" once more, this very enobling process, will indeed bring about a peace-filled world. One built upon compasssion arising from the recognition of our essential unity. This is what Mr. Jhawar's book holds up for examination, in a most succinct and illuminating way.
Building A Noble World, throughout its pages-- inspires and challenges us to ask ourselves, not only what it means to be a human being, but also, how we can embody the forthcoming realizations in ourselves, and then in the world. That is, to live our daily lives within the framework of a higher consciousness, that allows us to achieve awareness of our motives for everything we think, say, and do. For example, we believe we all want "peace" in this world. Yet, truly, how are we all going to have this "world peace", unless we each and every one of us, becomes peaceful (peace-filled) within ourselves, first and foremost? This, I understand to be the essential message of this aptly-titled book. How we ourselves can "build" this noble world we long for-- by providing the "scaffolding" of a higher consciousness within ourselves.
I highly commend Shiv Jhawar for courageously sharing his noble thinking about Life with us; the result being, this book, which is at once, emminently straightforward and "do-able", while at the same time, profound in its grasp of a great spiritual basis for human existence. He has my gratitude also-- for reminding me of this divine and human birthright-- which challenges me to reclaim my soul's highest responsibility. To deeply realize, in my mind and heart, and practice in my daily live, the truth that...all is One.
I urge everyone to read this uplifiting and enlightening book. Become inspired by it, and live by that awakened inspiration. Then surely, world unity and peace will become a reality...much sooner than we can ever hope to imagine.
