Does Sri Gorakshanath's shakti manifest through different human forms? Is this Lord Shiva's manifestation? Is Mahavatar Baba the manifestation of the collective divinity of Himalayan saints and siddhas? Did Ashwasthama of the Mahabharat manifest through Hairakhan Babaji? Has Hairakhan Baba taken birth in human form? Or entered the body of any yogi through shakti diksha or kaya pravesh? Has this divine personality taken different forms while remaining immersed in samadhi and maintaining a singular identity? What do the saints of the Himalayas have to say about this? What is the current thought and acceptance in yogic and philosophical terms? To answer these questions. I underlook an indefinable journey the journey of life. I visited innumerable sacred places, met many great saints and sages, both known and unknown. We can join the dots in retrospect, but looking ahead, the future remains unknown until we have realised that the future itself is in the past. This book has been written as a broad-based search. The writer, Romola Butalia, given the name of Sriji at the Kumbha in Ujjain, has made incalculable effort through varied and often difficult terrain, visiting many ancient sacred temples, teerth sthans or places of pilgrimage and tapasya sthals where tapasya or austerities have been performed. It is written from anubhuti or experience, with bhav or devotion and from the heart, while still remaining an analytical study. 'Jaki rahin bhavna jaisi, Prabhu murat dekhi tin taisi' (According to our devotion will be our experience) Direct experience is not measurable and remains inexplicable. Even at a sacred place, all will not experience the same energy. It is directly connected to the individual's vibrations and his bhav. For one without purity of purpose it can, at best, be a pleasurable experience; a change from his usual state of mind, nothing more. The mind that moves will continue to move. It may be stilled momentarily, but the effects will not be lasting, the memory will be merely of the pleasant, it will not have a transformational impact.

"The author makes a compelling case that we often start solving a problem before thinking deeply about whether we are solving the right problem. If you want the superpower of solving better problems, read this book." -- Eric Schmidt, former CEO, Google Are you solving the right problems? Have you or your colleagues ever worked hard on something, only to find out you were focusing on the wrong problem entirely? Most people have. In a survey, 85 percent of companies said they often struggle to solve the right problems. The consequences are severe: Leaders fight the wrong strategic battles. Teams spend their energy on low-impact work. Startups build products that nobody wants. Organizations implement "solutions" that somehow make things worse, not better. Everywhere you look, the waste is staggering. As Peter Drucker pointed out, there's nothing more dangerous than the right answer to the wrong question. There is a way to do better. The key is reframing, a crucial, underutilized skill that you can master with the help of this book. Using real-world stories and unforgettable examples like "the slow elevator problem," author Thomas Wedell-Wedellsborg offers a simple, three-step method - Frame, Reframe, Move Forward - that anyone can use to start solving the right problems. Reframing is not difficult to learn. It can be used on everyday challenges and on the biggest, trickiest problems you face. In this visually engaging, deeply researched book, you’ll learn from leaders at large companies, from entrepreneurs, consultants, nonprofit leaders, and many other breakthrough thinkers. It's time for everyone to stop barking up the wrong trees. Teach yourself and your team to reframe, and growth and success will follow.

'This book would be appropriate for an undergraduate social problems, inequality or introduction to sociology course as a supplemental text. I believe the discussion questions at the end of each chapter are especially useful. They could be used for whole class or small group discussion. I could envision using Crone's book in break out discussion groups for a large class. Many of the discussion questions would also be suitable as essay or short answer questions for examinations or writing assignments. Overall, Crone has produced a volume that will introduce students to the linkages between social problems and social theory and to thinking sociologically about social problems.' ùTEACHING SOCIOLOGYáHow Can We Solve Our Social Problems? discusses how we can take specific, realistic steps to solve a number of the worldÆs social problems. Author James Crone maintains a sense of sociological objectivity throughout, and without moralizing, describes what could be done to solve some of the most pervasive social problems in America today. The suggestions in this book help students realize that we can take actionùwe can take steps to solve our social problems. Key Features:áá Presents a theory of conflict and social change: The author introduces his own theory replete with theoretical propositions and causal model so readers can more readily see the process of a social problem and where it is along the path of being solved. Gives students studying social problems a sense of hope: Realistic suggestions help readers realize that a number of tangible steps can be taken to solve or at least ameliorate our social problems. Examines eleven specific social problems in American society: The book examines such issues as poverty, racial and ethnic inequality, unequal education, environmental problems, and much more, and illustrates how solving one social problem can also help ameliorate another social problem. Encourages students to think sociologically: While each social problem described is tied back to a theoretical perspective, students are encouraged to gain an appreciation of how social conditions greatly affect what we think, what we believe, and how we act. Intended Audience:áá This is an excellent supplemental text for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses such as Social Problems, Social Change, Social Policy, Urban Sociology, Public Policy, and Social Welfare in the departments of Sociology, Social Work, Political Science, International Studies, and Economics.Using this book with core SOCIAL PROBLEMS textbooks:Click 'Sample Materials and Chapters' at left for a matrix that shows you how to effectively use this text in conjunction with your current core textbook!Contact the author at [email protected] or at 812.866.7363 for any questions or feedback.
