Here is a very practical layout of a 4-week retreat that can help bring about an “awakening” in the reader – awakening in terms of numerous aspects of our life. All our prayers, our endeavours, successes and failures, our friendships and other relationships are intended to lead us towards a sense of fulﬁlment in life. But to make that possible, we need help, we need a guide at every turn of our joumey towards that ideal. A “retreat” is generally considered an appropriate tool for that purpose. Further, to fully beneﬁt from a retreat, there are two prerequisites, viz., a deep desire to have a personal experience and the spirit of openness. This book serves as both a tool and a guide. Among the numerous beneﬁts this book offers the reader is a change of attitude towards everything in life —be it towards others or towards oneself, be it towards the good that elates us as well as towards life’s ills that hinder our happiness or disturb the peace of our mind. Being fruitful in life thus becomes a way of life.
