This collection of fifty-one poems captures all that is pure, elegant and sweet in life. With titles such as “Mother Earth,” “Charity,” “Peace,” and “Married to the light, readers are in for a treat with this second printing of what has become an Indian classic. Each poem is written in the classical poetry style of Dohas or couplets, the style of the sages and mystics. Each work of poetic prose is highly readable and engaging and may be easily used as either a weekly mantra, meditation or simply as an inducement to get the reader’s mind and soul moving in the right direction—to enlightenment and beyond.
Body,Mind and Spirit
Death comes to you in the middle of the night,
Or sweeps you away in broad daylight.
This being mans biggest doubt,
Death is not to be talked about.
Where he comes from where he goes?
We have no tangible proof that shows.
The masters say there is a holy light,
In the beginning and during our last flight.
How do I overcome my fear of death?
By leading a good life and having no regret.
The moment I die I must do my best,
To become one with the light, eternal rest.
The soul must merge with the super soul,
Forever to become part of the whole.
As long as I have much to give,
That is how long I will live.
At the end to death I must go,
Finishing a real tragic and funny show.

Some of the most poignant prose I have come across, in relating to all aspects of religion and spirituality through harmony and unity of purpose. Mohit, crystallises all the main themes of life and its transition into beautiful and simple language, giving the reader a basis for considering these moving criteria easily and thoughtfully. Really it is a very useful tool, when trying to understand these deep and often seemingly complex questions.

I enjoy reading Mohit's poems. He has a tendency to rhyme and synchronize our everyday living circumstances with the devine.
And some of them are philosophical indeed and makes sense to the public at large.

Mohit has composed a collection of very lovely poems, with a lot of deep insights written in uncomplicated simple words. When Mohit first approached me to design his website - I was delighted... and at the same time my experience told me that it will be very challenging and difficult for Mohit to sell poetry online. However, Mohit has been persistent and driven to make this a success - and I request all book lovers, readers and poets to support and encourage Mohit by purchasing his book of lovely poems. The poems can be read and enjoyed over and over again. This is a book you will truly cherish to have as part of your collection.
