New Delhi: A new book by spiritual teacher Kamlesh D. Patel focusses on stress-free parenting as it offers readers nine principles to help build enriching and resilient familial bonds.

Published by Penguin India, ‘The Wisdom Bridge‘ by Patel will be released on 17 November on Softcover, ThePrint’s online venue to launch non-fiction books.

Patel, also known as ‘Daaji’, brings to light a range of issues, such as creating a support system to raise children and understanding the fine balance between love and discipline. The book serves as an important reference for parents, parents-to-be, grandparents, as well as caregivers to create fulfilling and happy lives for their children.

Born in 1956, the author is the fourth and current guide of the spiritual revolution called the ‘Heartfulness Movement’ that promotes meditation for self-development.

Patel, who has been training people to meditate for the past four decades, has authored bestsellers like ‘The Heartfulness Way’ (with Joshua Pollock) and ‘Designing Destiny’.

Patel’s passion lies in the grassroots, and taking meditation to the villages of India.

“My new book puts the spotlight on the importance of wisdom in our lives. In times of uncertainty and doubt, wisdom shows the way. It helps us focus on leading a life of inspiration, one filled with meaning and purpose”, said Patel.

In a little over 300 pages, The Wisdom Bridge delves on the significance of intentions, thoughts and actions by elders and how these influence children. The book’s nine principles not only guide readers on the responsibility of raising children well, but also helps nurture them to lead fulfilling lives.

Milee Ashwarya of Ebury Publishing and Vintage Groups, at Penguin Random House India, called the book “truly special for families to read and cherish”.

Pullela Gopichand, chief national coach, Indian badminton team, and recipient of the Padma Bhushan, said, “This book removes the difficulty from topics like discipline and character-building that most teachers and parents struggle with. Daaji’s idea of wisdom bridges and cherishing them, is an ode to the values and ideals of our country. This is a timely book that families will benefit from, including my own.”
