“This book, The Heartfulness Way, is truly transformational and is going to make a big difference in the lives of so many people across the globe.”
—Pankaj Gupta, PhD, executive director, Centre for Ethics, Spirituality and Sustainability at O.P. Jindal Global University, Delhi NCR
“All of us long to belong and try to connect to the Creator and this universe in various ways. This book helps us to connect holistically, meaningfully, and more importantly, ‘simply,’ through Heartfulness meditation. Giving ourselves the space to look within for just a few minutes in a day can keep us going, growing, and glowing throughout the day. The Heartfulness Way makes the journey as enjoyable as the destination.”
—Latha Rajan, cofounder of the Chennai Literary Association, and managing director of the Ma Foi Foundation
“The Heartfulness Way represents a revolution in the field of spirituality. Spiritualism is a process of self-realization. Every individual being unique, they experience this in different ways. But all seekers can be benefited by The Heartfulness Way, including experienced meditators. A practical and inspirational guidebook, its clarion call is that personal experience is greater than any spiritual knowledge or belief can ever be. But this book goes much further than that! It provides a well-honed method for spiritual awakening. Moreover, it shows us how to receive yogic transmission, or pranahuti, which easily enables any seeker to experience states of being that were once thought to be reserved for great yogis and renunciates. Read it, try its practices, experience yogic transmission, and see for yourself!”
—Suresh Prabhu, Minister of Commerce and Industry of India
“If you have picked up The Heartfulness Way, then you are one of the many of people looking for answers. Congratulations. You have found the key. This book will take you on a journey of self-comprehension, leading to the eventual discovery of your true potential.
Meditation is an age-old practice, and a successful one. This is perhaps the only way a person can face their own self and set themselves free. Put together from a series of conversations between teacher and student, the authors of this book have created something so powerful and profound that it makes me wonder how many lives it will potentially change.
I find immense pride in my association with Kamlesh D. Patel, and this book fills me with utmost respect for its two authors, who have embarked on the holy path of spiritual transformation. It is rare in today’s age to see people share their insight and teach from their experiences.
Om Namah Shivay.”
—C.B. Patel, owner, Gujarat Samachar; Asian Voice
“The Heartfulness Way is a truly extraordinary book, and a valuable guide to the serious spiritual seeker on the path to self-revelation. It is addressed to the heart, and if for that reason alone, cannot fail to profoundly move the reader. If approached in the right spirit, The Heartfulness Way can trigger a far-reaching, inner transformation. It is warmly recommended.”
—Ramnath Narayanswamy, IIM Bangalore
“Since 2000 when, as Beavercreek mayor, I officiated the grand opening of the Dayton Heartfulness/Natural Path Meditation C?enter, I have been a major supporter of this valuable community resource that provides free training in Heartfulness relaxation and meditation not just locally, but also ?globally! The local Heartfuness Center now services hundreds, including many of our community’s first responders. It is my hope that many more people can take advantage of this wonderful resource and ?learn these simple yet powerful techniques through The Heartfulness Way.”
—Rick Perales, Ohio State Representative
“The Heartfulness Way offers an eminently clear and practical path to the Divinity that lies within each of us. Highly recommended.”
—Robert Schwartz, author of Your Soul’s Plan and Your Soul’s Gift
“In my many decades as a management consultant to governments and Fortune 500 companies alike, I have realized that the external success of any organization depends on its internal health and integration. Similarly, the external success of any individual depends on their own level of personal integration and wellness. When you’re too caught up in your own problems, you can’t achieve anything great! But how to achieve that crucial level of personal integration and wellness? I have personally found Heartfulness meditation to be a critical tool in this regard. Through it, the heart assumes an executive function, and all of our faculties become aligned with it. When all of our energies are aligned in their purpose and work in a single channel, we become focused and empowered. As a result, we become effective. And because we are guided by the heart, we also express a deep and natural morality in all that we do. The Heartfulness Way masterfully demonstrates how to achieve personal integration, and should be indispensable to anyone who is serious about self-development.”
—Ichak Adizes, PhD, MBA, founder and president of the Adizes Institute
“Over twenty years ago, when I was introduced to the Heartfulness meditation practice, I could not have anticipated how much it would come to mean to me with each passing day. Nor could I have anticipated the harmony and purpose that I would find in my life as a result. Whether you are ardent practioner of meditation, just curious, or perhaps even skeptical, The Heartfulness Way is a must-read. Answers leap magically from its pages, making it simple to understand meditation and its purpose. To read this book is to be immersed in a symphony of revelations.”
—Vani Kola, managing director, Kalaari Capital --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

The book is filled with dialogues between Joshua and Kamlesh (Daaji) which are like pearls of wisdom scattered throughout the book. Through this medium of inquiry, I realized we also keep questioning our beliefs and understanding and see them in a better light. It helps in bringing more clarify and getting rid of biases that we may have accumulated consciously or subconsciously.
And as they say, reading a book alone cannot transform us. When we put Heartfulness Way into practice, we realize how simple it is, especially with the aid of Yogic Transmission and we start moving forward on the path of our own experiences.
The Heartfulness Way is a great resource for learning meditation. It helps answer a lot of questions about the “doing” part of meditation. How to sit, what to do with thoughts, the best time of day and place to practice. The stories and conversational style make it an easy read. It is a great book to recommend to patients, clients and friends who want to learn a simple meditation system.
I've got this book as pre-order from Amazon and have read it once, reading it second time, and realizing the potency of this high-energy yet simple for a commoner to understand the "Inner Connection".
I'm enjoying with simplicity of guru-disciple dialogue. I've already gifted over 10 books and everyone of my receiving friends are enjoying it. The depth I'm seeing during second time is much more in terms of my past reading connections, in-answered question from other literatures and reasons of so many things we do in our life .... best is what, how and doing .... Shifting towards Feeling i.e. moving away from Thinking.
It is experiential journey and not a intellectual reading the reason I love this book. I hope more humans will join this humanity-journey by using the simple methods of life's balance, so vital for our well-being of everyone on planet earth.

Some books can introduce to a new subject, some others can help to improve your knowledge, few can inspire and rarely can one sow seeds of knowledge for germination in the future. This book in my estimate can do all the above and more perhaps.
The style of the book is a conversation between a teacher and a student, in the style of Upanishads, Gita and Plato which is very inviting to the reader and takes you through the practice and explores the gems of this raja yogic system which has many unique extraordinary hidden features. Readers are asked to come and experience the life changing, simple and non-demanding meditation practice which will take you the realms far far beyond anything comprehensible in our mundane world.
I have read the book once and will read it many times to reap the extraordinary effects all the heartfulness books have on people who learn to read them, the heartfulness way.
Also this book clarifies the Asthanga yoga in the light of the Heartfulness way for the first time. The feeling role of heart is very well explained and so is the role of the mind in a spiritual practice.
Pranahuti, of the system, which is worth more than anything else in this world must be experienced to be believed.
Spiritual journey is well charted and guidance is available without any fee.
Now the man has a unique opportunity to explore the divinity within himself and I believe he will slowly find the Way to it.
