About the author:
Nelunika Gunawardena~Rajapakse is a proud citizen of her world. A native of Ceylon (Sri Lanka) through her formative years, and today, a citizen of the United States - having been resident there for over four decades - she cherishes her morally sensitive, cross-cultural, lived and learned upbringing under the nurturing guidance of her parents.
Nelunika's life idols, needless to say, are her parents who epitomized through every breath of their existence the compassionate values that are central and universal to the great scheme called existence. In appreciation of this view, she recognizes that the very substance that lies beneath all of life is equality - as LOVE at its best - in the absence of egocentricity.
The author, in turn, lives to cherish this spiritual legacy bestowed upon her, by her parents. She realizes that the crystallization of values as a help to all that compose life requires patience and conscientious effort. Hence, sustaining a selfless cultivated awareness is crucial to life's overall success.
The aspiration to guide others in the direction of true success based upon compassionate understanding, infinite peace, and eternal joy, thus, is Nelunika's life wish.

Parenting as a Help to Life

Modeling the Principle of Unconditional Respect and Learning by Love

Authored by Nelunika Gunawardena - Rajapakse

This edition of Parenting as 'A Help to Life' is now retired. Please see the revised version of this book (June 2012) presented in its new cover design. Parenting as 'A Help to Life' is an exposition of one world citizen's well lived educational wisdom. It is a plea and a life-prescription for parents and children, hand in hand. It is about the peaceful preservation of our matrix of existence, by infusing each breath of being with unconditional love through thought, word and deed. It is about 'respect' for the individual made of the collective and vice versa, centered upon the penetrating truth that life is selfless but not self-centered, in harmony with reality as a whole. Essentially, it is about the application of the PIVOTAL TRUTH called 'compassion or looking through the eyes of another' in all innumerable circumstances through the whole of life - in light of all beings sentient and other. This ought to be the basis upon which the threefold human construction called body-mind-spirit must rest. Success in the wake of learning and overall well-being will then be the automatic consequence that transcends all other worldly truths. Parental success and overall contentment in the human condition, thus, can only be measured upon the quality of LOVE that is woven through every atom of existence. It is to nurture all of nature with profound respect from the very inception of being through its culmination.
