The Flowers on the Path series is a bouquet. It comprises articles created by Sadhguru for the Speaking Tree column of the Times of India. These articles have, for many years, brought daily infusions of beauty, humour, clarity and wisdom into lives abraded by mayhem and monotony. In pages devoted to the changing weather of the stock market and international affairs, these articles have brought readers moments of unexpected insight and stillness. Sadhguru’s original thoughts, outspoken comments and references to current affairs have sometimes provoked controversy. But they have invariably added vitality and color to a national debate. Like flowers, these articles have inspired and stimulated readers, wafting into their lives as a gentle fragrance on some mornings, and on others, startling them awake with fresh perspectives on age-old ideas and beliefs.
