The LivingWise Project


HeartWords is a collection of poems evoking the joy of being, and the beauty and depth of Life perceived in its wholeness.

In the words of spiritual Master Mooji:

“Shruti Bakshi’s poems seem to flow effortlessly from some ambrosial spring within her…One finds oneself sweetly captivated by their mystical beauty and spiritual depth. Each poem is a love seed coming to life inside the garden of the heart.”

Through Maya’s story, From Dior to Dharma contemplates the human condition in modern society in which we are egged on to chase the ‘next big thing’ only to find it doesn’t hold the everlasting happiness that was promised. Maya’s transition from Dior to Dharma describes in intimate rawness, the inner struggles and seeking of one who has outgrown a life fixated on attaining material goodies and is looking for answers about life and purpose.

From Dior to Dharma brings out many deep truths from the spiritual traditions in an authentic and immediately relatable way. Penetrating insights into life are refreshingly shared against the backdrop of Maya’s travels – from the Parisian metro or the Redwood forests to the busy streets of Delhi or an ashram in Kerala.

When it was released in 2017, the novel received instant acclaim and interest from national book clubs.
