Delightful reading! It took me exactly 110 minutes to complete at a leisurely pace. Superb flow, easy understanding, and a powerful message.

It was indeed a thrilling experience to go through the book Inner Pilgrimage: Ten Days to a Mindful Me by Raji Lukkoor.

The flow of thoughts, the choice of words, the lucid description of the ten-day vipassana meditation retreat – it kind of transported me into that very place where her pilgrimage and the events that followed, unfolded. I could sense the vibrations in me as I went through the chapters. Raji came to the retreat as an ordinary citizen seeking a calmer, more centered existence. Who knew that vipassana meditation could help her transform her inner chaos into an inner calm?

The articulacy is perfect. Raji sure knows how to capture the attention and imagination of her readers with her eloquence of the English language, as well as her experience of discovering the realms and rewards of vipassana meditation.

I was penning an article for my staff on Leadership and was looking for words to complete the write-up. Believe me, I found close to 200 words that I was looking for, and those very words have enriched my own thought-flow in the said article.

I look forward to the sequel of the book.
