3 Lives, in search of bliss (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.195

3 Lives, in search of bliss is an inspirational fable of a New York city cab driver who, upon his unfortunate and sudden death, finds himself being offered three chances at redemption and finding happiness. The book is about the 3 lives he leads, the choices he makes in those lives and attainment of eternal wisdom and bliss.

After his death, Ray is offered three lives, each designed out of his choices, to find happiness. What starts as a journey towards wealth, health and knowledge turns into a discovery of eternal wisdom, and ultimately leads to bliss.
Exotic, evocative and haunting, the tale of Ray Cordoza’s three lives will make you ponder the choices that you make in your own life towards the pursuit of happiness.

The book is a celebration of the beauty of this wonderful universe and our lives as human beings. It falls into the genre of spiritual fiction - a format in which a fictional narrative is interlaced with philosophical and spiritual concepts. It could also (easily) be categorized as inspirational, self-help and motivational, depending on the perspective of the reader.

3 Lives is a product of inspired passion which aims to present eastern and western spiritual concepts in a manner that demonstrates the one-ness of everything in this world that we find ourselves in. That we all share the same fears, desires and aspirations. And, that we all have the same questions. That we share, at a fundamentally spiritual level, a deep and abiding desire to find and hold onto happiness.

Whether you're looking to be inspired or to comprehend the seemingly incomprehensible pain and disappointments that come our way in life,  this short novella is bound to leave a deep and lasting impression on you. Happy journeys!

His academic qualifications include masters degrees from Ohio State University and Carnegie Mellon University, where he was awarded the prestigious Heinz Fellowship.

If you read one book, do yourself a favor and make it "Three Lives"

To properly review this story, I have to tell the story of my reading. When I first started this book, I didn't think it would change my life. In fact, I would even say I was unimpressed. The first two paragraphs of the book are very negative and certainly aren't like anything I would normally read.

However, I don't like to leave things unfinished, especially books, so I kept going. And I am so happy that I did. I mentioned before that I didn't think this book would CHANGE MY LIFE - but it did. The story line woke me up and I hadn't even realized that my soul had been asleep!

However, I don't like to leave things unfinished, especially books, so I kept going. And I am so happy that I did. I mentioned before that I didn't think this book would CHANGE MY LIFE - but it did. The story line woke me up and I hadn't even realized that my soul had been asleep!

I read this entire book in a single go. Once I sat down and started reading I could not put the book down and I stayed at my desk until I had finished the whole thing. It is helpful that this book is rather short, but it was still several hours where the only movements I made were to turn pages.

But let me explain. This book attempt to answer the question "Why me?" If you have had a hard life, or even an easy life, odds are that you have sat down and asked yourself why your life has turned out the way it has. Why have you had good luck or bad luck in your life? Why have certain things happened? The author attempts to answer this question by exploring three lives (as the title suggests) that the main character, Ray Cordoza, experiences after he dies in a car accident. Yes, the main character dies in the first few pages, but that is what makes this story so special.

Ray Cordoza experiences three very different lives after his death: Anwer Al Safi, son of a devout Muslim, Dr. Jill Clayton, a scientist and teacher in America, and then Tenzin Lhamo, a young Tibetan monk. Each of these lives is obviously very different and helps Ray Cordoza see the world in a very different way and how small things can change our lives so drastically. Believe it or not, looking at things from such different angles has made me feel braver in my own life. I have more courage to go out and experience life, in all its beauty and terror.

Do not misunderstand me, this book has not made me dissatisfied with my own life and wish for something else. It has had quite the opposite effect. It has awakened me to the beauty of my own life, how special every moment is, and how much I have to appreciate. I love my family even more after reading this book, and I didn't think that was possible! I recognize how lucky I am and how many small favors appear to me every day.

I cannot recommend this book highly enough. Not to put too fine a point on it, but I feel that I finally understand the meaning of my life. If you read one book, do yourself a favor and make it "Three Lives."

'Un-put-downable'!

Srini exhibits a great talent to explain concepts and create healthy inquiry within the reader's mind, in an effortless manner. 3 lives is an easy-flowing insightful book with a well-balanced mixture of story, humour and wisdom.

It was refreshing to read a book that does not seek to impose the author's opinions onto the reader and instead encourages the reader to think on her own and draw her own conclusions.

Would recommend this book to anyone who is curious about what happiness and life is about. Delightful and 'un-put-downable'.

Loved it...

There are some (rather, very rare) experiences in life, which compels you to exclaim -"Wow, that was amazing...".

Well friends, i had exactly this experience when i read this book.

The experience of reading the book was simply mind-blowing... A plethora of thoughts evoked and i felt a perfect mixture of patheticity and ecstasy getting evoked within myself.

Every page gave me peace, the most elusive thing in this world.

Please read it, because it connects us with our 'true self'...

Thank you Mr. Srini, for producing such a master piece...

Truth revealed

After reading the book i can say that the author is showing the other dimension of life. what the society is trying to make you understand about life for thousands of years, he highlighted the essence of it which helped me to understand and realize how simple is life and what i have to do. this my personal feeling.
thank you

A gem of a book !

Friendship comes in many forms. I stumbled upon Srini Chandra on Twitter. I haven't spoken to him or met him in person. It is not often that someone comes up with a stunner like "3 Lives". What a debut! It is said first impression is the best impression - the cover of the book is stunning. As regards the content, I must say it is on par with "Siddhartha" by Herman Hesse. many many years ago when was I was young, I stumbled upon "Siddhartha" in a dusty corner of a lending library.

What a debut! It is said first impression is the best impression - the cover of the book is stunning. As regards the content, I must say it is on par with "Siddhartha" by Herman Hesse. many many years ago when was I was young, I stumbled upon "Siddhartha" in a dusty corner of a lending library. It was a turning point in my life. That book left a deep impact on me. Now, several years later, destiny has thrown "3 Lives" on my lap. This book will have a permanent pride of place in the small library that I have in my sweet home. I will ensure that "3 Lives" rubs shoulder with other literary giants in my book shelf. If I were to recommend a book to my two little daughters when they grow up, as a father, I would recommend "3 Lives". But as they grow up, I hope Srini Chandra will have written many more books as "3 Lives". This is one book which is worth the wait and worth the weight in gold. Just place your order for the "3 Lives" on Flipkart!
