The Genesis of the Series
Speaking to The Week, the author Pranay Gupta said: “It all started with a discussion that I had with my brilliant literary agent, Anuj Bahri at Red Ink Literary Agency. We realised there’s a huge gap when it comes to presenting the greatest spiritual teachings of all faiths in a condensed format, with fresh insights for contemporary circumstances. We decided to do these series in a way that distils the finest teachings of ancient mystic paths, in manner that is far more relevant for today’s times! When our wonderful publishers at Fingerprint – Shikha Sabharwal and Gaurav Sabharwal – came on board to publish these, we were delighted, as we realised that their vision matched and in fact enhanced our own. Our aim is to do pathbreaking and maverick mind-body-spirit titles that shed fresh light on timeless topics”.
The First Series: 5 Books
The first series (‘Spirituality for Leadership & Success’) comprises 5 key topics: HINDUISM, the BHAGAVAD GITA, BUDDHA, VEDANTA, and SWAMI VIVEKANANDA. The emphasis is upon the greatest leadership and success lessons from these 5 key angles of Indian mysticism. The lessons are truly universal in scope.
Within these books, the greatest spiritual secrets for higher achievement, fulfilment, and happiness have been gleaned and presented along with brand new, deep insights by the author. The whole idea is to present the very best learnings from Indian spirituality in a way that has relevance for people everywhere: especially those who are seeking to excel and succeed to another level.
Complete mind-body-soul wisdom is the essence of these books, with special emphasis on what it takes to find spiritually-established success, leadership excellence, creative value-creation, peace of mind, and overall brilliance in all our pursuits. The books take a broad spectrum view and are especially relevant in today’s age of massive change and disruption.
The depthful lessons in the books will hold leaders and potential leaders in good stead, helping them succeed further. The books are for both advanced levels as well as for those readers who are looking for simple, direct learnings from spirituality. Unnecessary jargon has been avoided within the books: the language has been kept simple, intuitive and perceptive.
The Second Series: 20 Books
Titled ‘Greatest Spiritual Wisdom for Tough Times’, this series of 20 books is based on both Indian and world spirituality.
The core idea of the series is this: to guide us towards living fearlessly and successfully. Especially in today’s world that is beset by crisis situations, challenges and tough circumstances!
To help people transcend all difficulties through the power of spiritual values and mystic wisdom, is the aim of this innovative set.
The first two books in this series are ‘Vedas & Upanishads’ and ‘Krishna’.
The series is unprecedented in publishing, as it collates the most broad range of topics, spiritual paths and mystics in a singular set.
Topics include Vedic knowledge & Hindu mysticism, Tantra, Buddhism, Guru Nanak & Sikhism, Jainism and several world religions. Also included in the series are various mystics both ancient and modern: Krishna, Kabir, Adi Shankaracharya, the Bauls, J Krishnamurti, Ramana Maharishi, Neem Karoli Baba, Rabindranath Tagore, the Rishis, and others. There are learnings from great scriptures and sacred texts such as the Mahabharat & Bhagavad Gita, the Vedas & Upanishads, the Zend Avesta, the Bible, the Dhammapada, and so on.
World wisdom is included: from Toltec, Taoism, Zen, Tibetan Tantra, Rumi, Socrates, Jesus of Nazareth, the ancient alchemists, Kabbalah, and so on. This assimilation makes the set stunningly original!
The emphasis is on the core mystic essence and secrets that can help us live more purposefully and dynamically, instead of on the outer or more superficial aspects of religion. The essence is to help us live with greater inner courage and wisdom during today’s tough times, and unlock our greatest potential even amidst challenges.
The lessons and spiritual principles within these books are meant to catalyse dynamic living in every way: at work and for professional accomplishment, for spiritual realization / self-knowledge / cosmic realization, for personal happiness and inter-personal relationships, etc.
The goal that the series has for its readers worldwide is simple: to help them move towards greater bliss and ultimate peaceful fulfilment.
Particular care has been taken to present aesthetically pleasing books, with very high production values. Producing top quality books - rich in content and meeting best global benchmarks in look and feel - is the credo at Fingerprint! As far as Pranay’s series go, the effort has been to do full justice quality-wise, to these wonderfully original versions of mankind’s spiritual inheritance over thousands of years.
Both series are quite simply splendid and great buys, whether for personal reading or as gifts. The books have been reasonably priced also.
