I am Ashwini Mokashi. I am a scholar with a spiritual bent of mind. I have been a lecturer in Philosophy, a teacher of ancient Greek and Sanskrit languages. I have had corporate experience and I am also active in social work. I am a student of life.
I study and reflect upon various topics of interest, which have a philosophical implication, such as Happiness, Wisdom, Meditation, Love, Connection, as well as some deeper philosophical insights from the Gita, Upanishads, Vedanta as well as the six schools of Philosophy like Nyaya-Vaisheshika, Samkhya-Yoga, Purva-Mimamsa, Uttar-mimamsa or Vedanta.
I read and research Greek and Latin thinkers, such as Plato, Aristotle, Stoic Seneca and others, classical literature in Sanskrit, Marathi saint-poets Jnaneshwar, Tukaram, Samartha Ramdas, Eknath as well as some Hindi saint-poets, such as Mirabai and Kabir.
My goal here is to publish various pieces of my writing on various topics to attempt to connect ancient wisdom to seek philosophical solutions to modern challenges and help solve the puzzle of happiness in as many ways as possible. I hope you will be a part of this journey, offer your views and enjoy reading some philosophical musings that still relate to today.
