Spirituality has not escaped the clutches of commercialisation in our global market economy which has sadly led to much distortion, confusion, misappropriation and misunderstandings. LWP is an effort to present the authentic Indian spiritual and cultural traditions in a way that is easily accessible by both Indians and non-Indians.
Important warning: strictly no new-age or pop spirituality and psychology here!
By collating the valuable insights, Truths and methods from India’s ancient spiritual heritage, LWP attempts to not only proliferate the little-known knowledge, but also present it in an easily-digestible and immediately relevant form. In a modern society reeling with stress, depression, uncertainties, doubts and other challenges, our mission is to enable people to transform themselves so that they can lead happier and wiser lives.
In addition to age-old wisdom, LWP draws inspiration from the beauty of nature, the adventure of travel, the comfort of food and values social awareness.
LWP is for those who are ready to go beyond pop-psychology, materialism and beyond yoga as a fitness regime and are searching for a better understanding about the nature of life.
