Building a Noble World is a gold standard in spirituality and politics. It offers practical solutions to the present-day world crisis. In these times when national, racial, religious, and personal prejudices are causing unrest and conflicts everywhere, Building a Noble World offers guidance toward safety, harmony, and prosperity in the world. In the book, the author, Shiv R. Jhawar, observes: ?Changes are effected not by changing others, but by changing oneself. Individuals make a family, families make a society, societies make a nation, and nations make a world. Thus, individuals are the world. When individuals change, the world changes. There is no other way.?The book is the result of years of study and research into spirituality. It promotes peace among people of all religions. Emphasizing spirituality as a unifying factor, the author states: "If spirituality were practiced sincerely, one would rise above all religious barriers, expanding the Self to embrace all humanity, even all creation. Religiosity divides, spirituality unites." Building a Noble World is not just a book about spirituality. It is about practical life. It includes topics such as how to stop terrorism, the reformation of the United Nations, the unification of the Indian subcontinent, a solution to the Kashmir issue, Tibet?s spiritual link with India, the author?s own experience of shaktipat, and the science of yoga. Recognizing the United Nations as the only route to world peace, the author concludes: "It is vital that all member nations strive toward making the UN more powerful than ever before." Writing the Introduction to the book, J. V. Lakshmana Rao, Managing Editor of the India Tribune, Chicago, states: ?This thought-provoking book, interspersed with highly knowledgeable quotes from the writings of distinguished spiritual masters, will stimulate the intellect of those who read it. I am confident all will benefit from it. It is hoped that it will help promote peace and brotherhood among all human beings. It is my conviction that this book releases tremendous force that may ultimately help build a nobler world.? By profession, the author is a Chartered Accountant. He graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with a Master?s degree in accounting. Enrolled to practice before the Internal Revenue Service, he has been practicing tax accounting in Chicago for over 20 years.
