About The Heartfulness Way

Building on ageless oral tradition, Kamlesh D. Patel – widely known as Daaji, the fourth guru in the Heartfulness tradition – traces a seeker’s journey as he examines the nature of spiritual search. Through a series of illuminating conversations between a teacher and a student, Daaji reveals the principles of the Heartfulness practice and philosophy to Joshua Pollock, a Heartfulness practitioner and trainer.

If you knew there was a practical way to transcend suffering and fly into the sky of hope and contentment, would you be interested?

That is exactly what Heartfulness offers – transforming us from the inside out so that we see the world in a new way, without the filters of our limitations.

“In this simple and elegant book, Daaji reveals the ancient secrets of Heartfulness meditation for a well-integrated life. A must read for anyone interested in incorporating meditation into their life style”

A prominent neurosurgeon and CNN’s Emmy award winning chief medical correspondent.

Barry Patel

Everything in life is about having the right attitude. Even meditation becomes just another activity when one lacks that, and this is irrespective of religious or personal beliefs. The authors have beautifully let this understanding emerge in this book. A must read for all especially who want deeper understanding of higher Self.


The Heartfulness Way elucidates how by meditation we shall be able effortlessly and naturally to still the mind and discover the unchangeable eternal source of existence within our own hearts.
