“Unconditional love is the ultimate answer, nonviolence is its absolute armor, and abundant peace and prosperity for all is love’s definite reward."
Manahawkin, NJ (Vocus/PRWEB) February 15, 2011
More than a quarter of adults have left the faith in which they were raised for another religion, according to The Pew Forum. In his new book, Spiritual Quest of a Baby Yogi: Journey through Islam, Christianity and Beyond, Dev Prana (otherwise known as Safir Ahmed) soul searches the depths of many religions until finding a faith he could call his own while motivating others to do the same.
Prana thinks of himself as an open-minded man when it comes to religion. “I consider myself a Muslim on Fridays, a Jew on Saturdays, a Christian on Sundays and a Buddhist on Mondays,” says Prana. “I’m a student of religion.”
Prana left Pakistan and his life as an Ahmadi Muslim when he was just seventeen years old. Coming to America to further his academic education, he ended up stumbling upon his own life’s purpose. The author has a revelation in a dream one night to become a born-again Christian and spread the word of God. Prana believes all religions center around one universal God and are built on similar foundations of unconditional love, nonviolence and inner peace.
“Unconditional love is the ultimate answer, nonviolence is its absolute armor, and abundant peace and prosperity for all is love’s definite reward,” writes Prana.
In Spiritual Quest of a Baby Yogi, each chapter is a stepping stone to establish a resilient spiritual connection with a higher power. There are many religions discussed in the book, including Bhakti yoga, Pranayama, Hinduism and Buddhism just to name a few.
The book inspires readers to become devout students of spirituality in order to find happiness and peace. It empowers all people to seek the enlightenment of God through self-realization and diligence, and in turn living a life of purpose and fulfillment.
“We absolutely need God’s divine presence, grace and mercy in our lives to realize and achieve the purpose of our earthly existence, but we don’t necessarily need any religion to get to God,” writes Prana.
