The Pursuit of Happiness

My recently published book ‘Sapiens and Sthitaprajna: A Comparative Study in Seneca’s Stoicism and the Bhagavadgita’ is based on the concept of a wise person as we see in Stoic Seneca as well as in the Bhagavadgita. The scholarly research shows how wisdom leads to happiness, in a simple layman’s terms. This article below is a brief summary of my research. I hope you will enjoy the article, that originally was published in the Indian Express:

Ashwini Mokashi's book 'Sapiens and Sthitaprajna' is on Comparative Philosophy on the concept of the wise person in Stoic Seneca and the Gita. The book talks about how wisdom leads to happiness. This book is now also recognized by the American Philosophical Practitioners Association from New York. Her next book, a work in progress, is an account of a meditational community in India. Her broad interest is in synthesizing wisdom from various ancient traditions in the context of modern challenges.
