About the author:
Nelunika Gunawardena Rajapakse is a proud citizen of her world. Mentored all along by her resolutely dedicated Montessori pedagogue mother-a member of the original circle of Dr. Maria Montessori in 1943-and having worked in partnership with her for three decades, Nelunika is a proud beneficiary of her own experientially founded, intellectual legacy. She boasts a rich history of authentic Montessori in practice for over four decades, having been the head directress, and chief operating officer of the much admired Bainbridge~Solon Montessori School (1970-2012) that served scores of children and parents in Ohio, USA.
The author, above all things, cherishes her morally grounded 'lived and learned' upbringing under the nurturing guidance of her parents. Nelunika 's life idols, needless to say, are her parents-Dionicious and Mildred Gunawardana-who epitomized, through every breath of their existence, the compassionate values that remain central and universal to the great scheme called 'existence.' In observation of this view, all things, indeed, possess intrinsic richness; they call for equal value and respect-shunning egocentric norms, labels, and attitudes.
Nelunika, in turn, reflects on living a spiritually rich life through every breath of her own existence. She realizes that improvement and enrichment in sustaining values 'as a help to life'-to all that compose life-requires patience and mindful effort, hand in hand. Hence, maintaining a selfless cultivated awareness is crucial to life's overall success. The aspiration to guide others in the direction of true peace and eternal joy, thus, is Nelunika's life wish.
Presently, she lives her renewed and pioneering vision along her steadfast mission to 'Raise the Position of Today's Child and the World' while sharing her 'Vision for Intellectual Wellness for all Ages'. As such, she disseminates her wisdom and expertise through the creation of invaluable time-stamps of her life-experience.
In this day and age of confused human values and ideals, Nelunika stands passionately upon her convictions-to improve the human condition by way of books, videos, blogs, and dedicated websites.
Additionally, Nelunika is a devoted professional trainer, and a mentor for parents, engaged in sharing her expertise by way of lectures, seminars, consultations, and continuous guidance to organizations, schools, individuals, and diverse social groups.
She is the author of seven books.
Healing Breath, The Wind of Life
A 'Seeds of Wisdom' presentation - Book 1
Nelunika Gunawardena Rajapakse
This jewel of a book is intended to reflect-the virtue of mindfulness-a particular mental aspect, of quintessential importance, that unveils the intrinsic truth embodied in the wisdom, called 'LOVE' , that binds all of life.
Today, regrettably, this 'LOVE' assumes a spectrum of differentiations-as degrees, forms, and types of mindsets. In brief, it is such compartmentalized love that continues to condition the experience of 'being and becoming'-weaving, in turn, the ever continuous saga of 'change and dissatisfaction' reflectively looked upon as 'unenlightened existence'-trapped within the walls of mind, in vacillating time and space.
The essential nature of LOVE, however, is to surpass all distinctions and differentiations.
Healing Breath, The Wind of Life is a meditative and reflective exposition, intended to purvey the human reality that exists in swift and sheer transience grounded in interdependence and co-existence. Breath, in itself, is the selfless wonder of life. Its ephemeral character entails a sublime call for our contemplative attention while mind travels along the path of 'the present' through space and time.
May the readers of this compendium of reflective thought ponder over their deeper human purpose which, in an ultimate sense, must be to touch the vast ocean called 'life and being'-untainted and unbiased by compartmentalized thought.
