Unfolding The Mind Field
"Unfolding the mindfield: The Journey of a spiritual entrepreneur" is a collection of experiences woven into 'a garland of thoughts and beliefs' that have shaped Mr. Madhav Kamat's life so far. He epitomizes the harmony that can exist between a purely business propotion and a quest for spiritual awareness.
Based on his own experiences as a student, a professional in india and england, an entrepreneur, with a strong spiritual bent of mind, his stories are imbued with simplicity, sicerity and humour.
In the evolution of Mr Kamat's philosophy of life, several people and events have played a role. He acknowledges the profound influences of his father, his spiritual gurus, his teachers, men like Prof Homi Bhabha and Vikram Sarabhai, pioneers in the field of nuclear /atomic energy research, as well as friends like Joe Coehlo.
Having traveled extensively in the country and abroad, Mr. Kamat's descriptions of the experiences he had at various places, whether it is the Kumba Mela or Rajgir, his chance meetings with strangers who offered him insights, shrines, temples and locales of exquisite beauty, recreate for the reader the magic of those moments.
On a deeper, philosophical level, Mr. Kamat speaks of some very powerful experiences which his rational mind could not explain but were true and real, nevertheless.He successfully conveys abstract truths and principles in simple layman's language and then offers suggestions on how everyone can find the divinity within himself / herself.
He shows through some of his essays, that business practices which are guided by a sense of ethics and morality can never be exploitive and that spirituality is, can and should be the basis of all human endeavour.
Aware of the stresses that young professionals today undergo, Mr. Kamat has talks to a group of harased policemen about a practice that helps them to relax.
He also offers readers a guide to coping with the tensions of modern living and assures them of his assistance should they need it.
