Long before the blitz of ‘modern age’ wiped away our patience, it was stories that were the most potent medium to transfer the accumulated wisdom of mankind. From politics to spirituality, and from commerce to war, stories were used as a knowledge tool.
The bestselling author, voracious reader and accomplished technology professional that Dev Prasad is, he always felt the irresistible need of reinventing and revitalizing storytelling to address problems of modern-day living. The present volume is born of that effort.

"Aatmabodh means ‘self-awareness’ or ‘knowledge about one’s self’. Only when we develop true awareness of the self, we begin to understand the true nature of the world. We should be careful not to let false knowledge take over our minds and make us either proud or negligent. We should also try to make ourselves aware and vigilant against complacency. Understanding our inner values and goodness is very important. Looks do not and should not matter, as appearances can be deceptive. Everyone is beautiful just the way they are. Aatmabodh can help us realize our true worth and find our inner selves."⠀ ~ #FromVedantaToWhatsApp by Dev Prasad⠀ #StayAtHomeAndRead #QuarantineAndRead #KeepReading #selfhelp
More than a carefully collated anthology of tales both ancient and new, and anecdotes, both personal and apocryphal, From Vedanta to WhatsApp is meant to be a ready reckoner for one and all, as we wade through the challenges of everyday life.
