Book review: 'Rah Kay Phool' by Sadhguru
Rah Kay Phool is a yet another book featuring wisdom thoughts by Sadhguru. Translated in Hindi by Dr. Saraslaxmi 'Saras' and published by Diamond Books as first edition with copyrights under Isha Foundation the book is a collection of Sadguru's articles published in The Times of India column, The Speaking Tree.

The book is a framework of three nice sections and 40 short articles. Each article provides an insight into various aspects which focus on health, relationships, spirituality, society and human behavior, and role of guru in this modern era.

The good thing about the content is that Sadhguru has described it in such a simple manner that even a layman can get benefit out of it. Also, Dr. Saraslaxmi through his translation for Hindi readers has made a wonderful effort.

While coming back to the content part, readers may expect a broader thinking and a positive perspective to various issues around them and they can relate it easily while understanding the simpler ways of handling and dealing with it. Sadhguru has a divine quality of describing the things in precise manner. In “Rah Kay Phool” at one point he emphasizes understanding the right way of being healthy and role of yoga for channelizing the energies within.

The quote where he says if the energy body has made your whole body, had developed the organs, maintaining the circulation it has the full capacity to treat the illness too not only motivates but it provide insight into other aspect of our being as well.

While talking about parenting he speaks about child freedom and role of parents. I admire him when he quotes that parenting is an opportunity to provide an environment for a child to prosper. A child has its own intelligence which he inherits from the time of his/her birth.

The quality of moving ahead is inbuilt even in animals. The difference in being human is that we have the broader opportunities to excel. The right parenting is not forcing but letting the child explore to his potential and use intelligence in right direction. A parent is like a gardener, who provides an opportunity for the plant to blossom.

“Rah kay Phool” can be a motivational capsule for every reader.
