From KRISHNA The Management Guru
Power is the ability to help people.
Storyteller, Mythologist, Decoder of Hindu Scriptures and Bestselling Author

On Certainty, Love, Society and Truth
(2023) Motilal Banarsidass International
UG Krishnamurti was like a vast ocean towards which many rivers flow. All his friends flow river-like through life’s ups and downs, in rage at times, flooding with emotions at others, meandering here and there, but heading ultimately towards the vast all-encompassing welcoming ocean. Those who merged with him are at peace – they may claim otherwise – ‘devastated… shattered’ are the words they prefer to use, but if they look within themselves, they would find rock-like stability in the understanding that there is nothing to understand. Then, like sand they would flow, along with the flow of the ocean.
This book is a collection of UG’s words…
undiluted, uninterrupted…culled out from his various talks and conversations.
The Origin of Gods
(2023) Shree Book Centre
The Puranas are the simplification of the Vedas and Upanishads, the main Hindu scriptures. Their entire knowledge has been transformed into stories for the ease of understanding. Sunita Pant Bansal introduces the 18 Puranas, giving the stories of their birth, the theme each one is based on, and some interesting stories from within the Puranas, like: Did you know that there were actually 22 incarnations of Vishnu? Or that all the jewels in the world were created from a demon’s body? Read on to discover more such fascinating stories written in a simple lively style complemented by equally evocative illustrations.
The Return of
Vikram and Betaal
(2022) Readomania Publishing
Justice Vikram is at the peak of his career, riding high on his success as though there is no tomorrow – a fact that comes true in his case. He is paid a visit by Doot, the angel of death. Vikram’s time on earth is over, but Doot offers him a deal. Vikram has to solve some complicated cases. If Doot approves his verdict, Vikram gets a fresh lease of life… till Doot gives him another tough case. The deal is, if Vikram is unable to reach the right verdict, he has to leave with Doot. Sounds familiar?
Here comes the twist. The cases are based on actual criminal cases with unusual, dramatic and often unpredictable verdicts…solving which, Vikram revisits his relationships and unravels the knots that have bound him to life.
What would be his final verdict on himself?
(2022) Rupa Publications
Bhagavadgita is the Universal Truth. It gives us knowledge of the Self and answers two important questions: Who am I? How can I lead a happy and peaceful life? On the first day of the war of Mahabharat, Arjun faced a dilemma. He had to make a choice between fighting the war and killing his teachers, friends and relatives, or running away from the battlefield for the sake of avoiding violence and preserving peace. Krishna, Arjun’s charioteer, gave him a lecture of seven hundred verses of practical wisdom, known as Bhagavadgita. At the end of which, a confident and decisive Arjun went on to fight, and ultimately won the war.
Arjun’s dilemma was, in reality, the universal dilemma that everyone faces in life while performing their duties. At the core of every dilemma stand the mind and intellect facing each other. The impulsive tendencies of the mind and the self-disciplined thoughts of the intellect fight a battle every day. Sunita Pant Bansal has condensed the practical wisdom of Krishna’s Bhagavadgita to fit into the 365 days of a calendar, simplifying them and explaining their essence in today’s context. Everyday Gita shows how to conquer our dilemmas and lead a happy, peaceful and successful life.
