Who doesn’t want to reside in their dream house in a sought-after neighborhood? Or drive their dream car(s) or have the kids attend private schools? How about taking extravagant vacations or splurging on furnishings, jewelry, art, gourmet delights, designer accessories, and hobby equipment? We want for ourselves what our neighbor has, or a friend or colleague has.
Heather Rae Butler of the UBR evaluates "Inner Pilgrimage"
I had the pleasure of meeting Raji in person and getting to speak with her about her new book. I was drawn to the idea of Vipassana meditation and was curious to know more. I am open to the idea of spirituality, and having read several books on Buddhism, I was interested in knowing more about how Vipassana fit into Buddhist philosophy. I was also looking forward to learning about what it was like to visit a Vipassana meditation retreat from a first-person point of view.

Inner Pilgrimage: Ten Days to a Mindful Me by Raji Lukkoor is a multidimensional spiritual journey— using Vipassana meditation—a secular tool that Raji thinks can change anyone’s life dramatically, forever. When you immerse yourself in the goose-bump arising, spiritual experiences of Inner Pilgrimage; be sure to keep your senses and sensibilities open, so you can navigate through the unpredictable sensations in your body. The description is so picturesque and captivating that you feel as if you have plunged into Raji’s sea of words and encountered a spiritual experience so deep that it feels like your own experience.
Who doesn’t suffer from the modern human affliction called “convenience?” It’s a hard reality that can’t be ignored. I’m guilty of it too. Personal computers, mobile devices, 24/7 cable television, vehicles, appliances, air conditioning, power tools, online banking, frozen meals, paper towels, antibacterial soap, the works! One-click phone calls, flip-switch controls, junk food drive-thrus, instant movie
I have often watched documentaries on retreats with the secret yearning of wanting to attend one of these myself one day. They show you the difficulties people have to overcome and the unbelievable transformations of peoples lives that can take place, it is simply amazing.
