For each one of us, life is a journey, variously interspersed with occasions that bring joy, progress, good will, sorrow and also a sense of gratitude for all the blessings we have received. Adarsa Jivan is a Compilation of Samskrta verses that mark such occasions in our lives. These have been composed and set to music by Pujya Guruji Swami Tejomayananda, with characteristic lyricism and Vedantic wisdom. They hold up a mirror to the ups and downs we all go through in life’s journey. The commentary on these verses, also by Swami Tejomayananda, comes in the form of a simple story that leads us through the lives of two individuals, you and me.
