Is the essence of my existence real or it is a pale illusion? Who am I destined to be?

Praise and Reviews

She has bared her soul…The poems are refreshingly unpretentious, written in a simple, lucid and disarming manner. The volume could easily find pride of place as a book of meditations.” - from the Foreword by Dr. Sunrit Mullick (HarvardDivinitySchool)

 

“In spare yet profound, honestly introspective verse, Rajyeshwari Ghosh plumbs and analyzes her life experiences, feelings, thoughts, and meditations, exploring her own unique inner consciousness as well as connecting herself to all of us in our universal humanity.  With her auspicious first published poetry she continues the rich tradition of great Bengali poets like Rabindranath Tagore in reaffirming the ancient wisdom of India while bravely seeking truth in the modern world.”- Marvin McClendon, Ph.D., Professor of Mathematics, SavannahCollege of Arts and Design, Georgia, USA.

 

“Congrats Rajyeshwari, your book, Essence of My Existence, is a priceless gem! It is so full of wisdom and truth and an absolute delight to nourish my Soul with as I read, reflect and relish its heart centered inspiration. Like your poem, A State of Meditation, it connects us with the very pulse of creation, the Source of Truth. Thank you for having the courage to share your gifts and wisdom.”

- Sean M. Kelly, Inspirational Speaker, Trainer, Musician & Author of Dare to Dream, Dublin, Ireland.

 

“Ghosh’s Essence of My Existence confronts the crisis of modernity with a spirit of calmness and moral clarity. She does not withdraw from the exigencies of everyday life, and it is precisely the reassuring and encouraging teaching of her poetry that allows the thoughtful reader to ponder his or her own ethical potentialities.”

- H. Lee. Cheek, Jr., Author of Political Philosophy and Cultural Renewal

 

“In Essence of My Existence I am reminded of a swirling of Khalil Gibran, Emily Dickinson and William Wordsworth but then brought back to the reality of 21st century life which Rajyeshwari Ghosh speaks magnificently with depth and conviction bringing peace and tranquility to the mind. Words that reach across cultures…a beauty of poetic wisdom.” Colin Ude-Lewis, Writer of Wisdom Notes
