Book Description:
GPS For Our Souls: A To Z Coordinates To Enlightenment, by Victor Parachin, ISBN 9780828325769 Paperback, $14.95; ISBN 9780828325776 E-Book

In this book, Victor Parachin presents a road map with coordinates on how to achieve personal and collective enlightenment, except that the coordinates are not numbers or scientific formulas; rather, they are the thoughts and the rituals of such eminent individuals as Buddha from ancient India to Joseph Campbell from modern America. Enlightenment is a noun denoting a state of being enlightened, or the act of enlightening. In Buddhist thought there is a word for a person like you and that word is: Bodhisattva. A Bodhisattva is any individual who is committed to achieving his or her enlightenment in order help others become enlightened. The Buddha taught: “The greatest gift is to give people your enlightenment, to share it. It has to be the greatest.”

This book – GPS For Our Souls - is a tool for you to use on your journey toward enlightenment. It can be helpful to remember that enlightenment is always the result of an intentional journey and that enlightenment generally comes gradually and in moments. The Sufi sage who was born in India, Indries Shah, (1924-1996) rightly observed: “Enlightenment must come little by little; otherwise it would overwhelm.” In addition, Joseph Campbell, mythologist and author, offers this insight: “Enlightenment, cannot be communicated, but only the way to enlightenment.” GPS For Our Souls contains stories, quotes and lessons of Eastern wisdom which point the way toward enlightenment. Rather than chapters, this book is arranged according to the letters of the alphabet with some letters containing more than one entry.
