Thoughts and feelings that persist over time harden into an attitude. If you live with an attitude long enough, it becomes second nature—a mindset. The wrong mindset could lead you off the path of contentment, joy, enlightenment. The right one will point you to the road to success, to fulfilment and towards an extraordinary life.
Blending science with Vedic scriptures, and logic with spiritual insight, Swami Mukundananda unravels the secrets of the 7 mindsets—seven techniques of training the mind and intellect and unlocking the immense potential within. An alumnus of IIT and IIM, Swamiji brings his decades-long mastery of Vedic scriptures to these powerful yet simple techniques for mind management and life transformation.
The Science of Mind Management
The quality of our mind determines the quality of the life we lead. It can be our greatest ally or our worst adversary. A mind that runs amok could steal our inner peace and undermine every productive endeavor. Yet, with proper knowledge, training and discipline, it is possible to unleash the mind’s infinite potential.
In The Science of Mind Management, Swami Mukundananda charts the four different aspects of the human mind and lays down a clear path towards mastering it. Through witty anecdotes, real-life accounts and stories from the Vedic scriptures, he gently guides readers on the road to winning their inner battle.
7 Divine Laws to Awaken Your Best Self
Just as heat is inherent in fire, so is our desire to become better. Why is personal growth and life transformation so difficult? Does Creation wish that we fail? Of course not! The purpose behind the Universe’s grand design is to make us succeed. Our own unawareness of the laws of the Universe creates the impediment.
Just as physical phenomena are regulated by laws, there are spiritual principles governing the journey of life as well. Knowledge of them helps us understand why success comes so easily to some but remains a struggle for others; why some are still putting on their shoes, while others have finished the race.
The beauty is that, like the physical laws of nature, the divine principles governing happiness and fulfilment in life are also eternally valid. In this book, Swami Mukundananda explains the 7 divine laws in an easily graspable manner. With knowledge of the Vedic scriptures and witty anecdotes that everyone can relate to, this book will empower you to become the best version of yourself.
Golden Rules for Living Your Best Life
The untapped potential of every individual is the biggest tragedy of the human race. The primary reason for this is our lack of awareness of the processes, tools and techniques needed to unleash it.
While life is a do-it-yourself project, there is no user rule book that teaches us to deal with the complexities of human life. Would it not be nice if there were a manual for life as well?
The Atharva Veda states: dve vidye veditavye … parā caivāparā ca (Mundakopanishad 1.1.4) ‘To triumph at life, one must possess both spiritual and material wisdom.’
Every successful person is either already blessed with this wisdom or has acquired it. This book not only bridges this gap, but also equips you with the proper knowledge needed to effectively navigate your life. Learning it will unleash your abilities and unlock your potential to thrive in your endeavours.
In this book, Swami Mukundananda brings together a hundred gems of wisdom to constantly elevate the quality of your life in five key areas—spiritual and emotional wellness, good health and well-being, harmony in relationships, professional fulfilment and financial abundance. If you can effectively manage these five dimensions of your life, all the other aspects are automatically transformed. This, in turn, will enable you to become the best you can be, today and every day, and win the game of life.

In this authoritative commentary, Swami Mukundananda reveals the original meanings of the verses with crystal clear explanations and perfect logic.

He masterly quotes from all the Vedic scriptures and many other sacred texts, opening up a panoramic view to help us see through the window of the Bhagavad Gita, the whole Absolute Truth.
Dialectics, in philosophy, is a method of investigating the nature of the Truth, through discussions in the form of questions and answers. We find it repeatedly used by Western philosophers throughout history. Socrates used the dialectic process to instruct his students, and he vigorously encouraged them to question existing beliefs. Plato, his illustrious disciple, adopted the dialectical method in his famous book, “The Dialogues.”
Spiritual Dialectics is a compilation of answers to some of the most challenging questions regarding spirituality, the goal of life, philosophy, the holy scriptures, and more. Swamiji has been preaching for nearly 40 years and as part of his mission, many devotees have asked a lot of questions. Swamiji has taken the time to consolidate these questions and answers in this beautiful book.
Endorsed by Swami Mukundananda, Management Mantras has been penned by Dr. S. Ramaratnam, Vice Chancellor, JK University, Odisha.
India has been known for long as the land of spirituality. Recent studies have brought out the depth of secular wisdom that is also embedded in the ancient Vedic and classical literature. Management Mantra is an attempt to bring about a synthesis between a modern subject like Management and one of the most ancient literatures of the world.
In the words of Swami Mukundananda, who has written the foreword, this book is like a treasure house of centuries of wisdom from the ancient Indian civilization speaking to us on the theme of Management Science. Whether one is questing for tips to hone one’s managerial acumen, or searching for gems of practical wisdom in life, or merely an admirer of the Vedic culture, there is enough material in it to satisfy everyone.
