My Services and Activities
As a philosophical scholar, I write and publish articles based on my research in various journals and on my blog on this website. My first book on ancient Philosophy has been widely recognized by the US, UK, and Indian Universities. It has been assigned as a text and reference book for courses in Philosophical Counseling. My second book is coming soon on the topic of Meditation.
My counseling practice is based on Philosophical methods and solutions. I use Philosophical texts including Stoicism and the Bhagavad-Gita to solve client’s problems and gain a long-term perspective.
My business consulting practice is about solving HR or Ethical concerns in Organizations through philosophical perspectives.
I have given talks at the most prestigious academic institutes based on my research, including Princeton University in New Jersey, Bhandarkar Oriental Research Institute in Pune, India, American Philosophical Practitioners Association. If your organization or academic institute wants to know more about my research, I would be delighted to talk to your group.

My Happy Clients!
Ever since I started talking to Dr. Ashwini Mokashi, I feel immensely blessed and grateful to God for all the support and guidance she has given me. Her way of understanding and analyzing a particular problem persuades you to cognize your own strength, that every person innately has! With inspirational philosophies of Stoics and Upanishads, brought into candid conversations, she is making it so easy for me to reflect upon even small actions and importantly channelizing my own thoughts. Many thanks to Dr.Ashwini from the core of my heart for all her kind words and advice.
Counseling Client treated in Feb-March 2021
My wife greatly appreciated your kindness and attention in her long illness. You were compassionate and generous towards her.
Sapiens and Sthitaprajna studies the concept of a wise person in the Stoic Seneca and in the Bhagavadgita. Although the Gita and Seneca’s writings were composed at least two centuries apart and a continent apart, they have much in common in recommending a well-lived life. This book describes how in both a wise person is endowed with both virtue and wisdom, is moral, makes right judgements and takes responsibility for actions. A wise and virtuous person always enjoys happiness, as happiness consists in knowing that one has done the right thing at the right time.
“There are very few works of scholarship, where an author has compared philosophical concepts of Roman Antiquity and Ancient India. Good job.”
