A Book for Self-Realization

Below is Píaras Cionnaoith’s review of the book, Building a Noble World, at

Profound thoughts are explained here in the simplest manner. That’s all one can say about this book. It is difficult to write a more objective review because the impact the author will have on you will make you see life and its problems in a wise and practical way. The book should NOT be read – it should be absorbed and reflected upon.

This book has helped me clarify my thinking, process my feelings, and make better decisions. If you are you ready to stop drifting and design a life you love, this read with help you on your journey. The author has put his heart in the pages of this book that will encourage and give hope to the reader. So many wonderful and courageous people share their experiences through books, and I thank this author for sharing his.

While I personally believe that everybody’s spiritual journey is as unique as our DNA, there are, I believe, interconnections between every living thing on this planet that makes each journey and opinion worthwhile if it leads ultimately to peace and harmony.

The overall tone was simply imparting knowledge, personal experience and wisdom in a gentle and generous way. His words will help to better equip you to interpret and handle life in a whole new way, which in turn will bring peace, love, and joy into your life. If you are looking for inspiration and encouragement in the face of serious issues, this would come highly recommended from me.


Bookwire Review

R.R. Bowker, the world’s leading company for book information and the official U.S.A. agency for assigning ISBN, posted its following unbiased review of Building a Noble World:

Building a Noble World addresses the key post-modern political issues that hinder world peace. At a time when the world faces acute problems of terrorism, cross-border conflicts, racial and religious differences, Shiv R. Jhawar offers us a path to emerge from this darkness and move towards world peace and unity. The issue of terrorism that has intensified, especially after the 9/11 attacks in the United States, is also well tackled. Jhawar states that its root cause is the condition of the human mind, which must be improved in order to overcome crime and war. In order to spread harmony and prosperity, we must be able to connect with the spirit within each of us and must rise above social, political and racial biases by accepting, respecting and celebrating diversity in all walks of life.

Building a Noble World gives an insight into Yoga as a means to attain inner peace. It also discusses varied subjects such as religion, spirituality, meditation and the author’s experiences of shaktipat in which you transcend your physical body and mind, and experience absolute reality.

Jhawar offers simple yet profound solutions to global political issues such as the ongoing crisis in Kashmir and the possibility of unifying the Indian subcontinent for promoting regional economic prosperity. While striving in a quest for global harmony, the author recognizes the indispensable role played by the United Nations for negotiating and tackling cross-border issues.

The central theme of the book revolves around the importance of attaining inner peace and the unification of humanity for attaining world peace. It guides humanity towards peaceful co-existence. It is a well-researched, easy to read book with sound concepts, as well as quotes from renowned world leaders and spiritual masters. Insightful, inspiring and practical, Building a Noble World is a book that promotes world peace and adds value to life.

Shiv R. Jhawar’s spiritual book, Building a Noble World, inspires seekers to go beyond organized religion to discover their own spiritual nature.  In this uplifting and thought-provoking book, Jhawar writes, “Once you have an experience of transcendental reality, you are changed forever.”
The simple yet profound message found throughout this unique book is: There will never be peace in the world until people first discover peace within themselves. 
One of the sad ironies of the 21st Century is that in spite of tremendous progress in science and technology, people still suffer from increasing levels of stress, unhappiness, mental illness, and addictions. What’s the use of wealth if one’s mind is not at peace?
Nobody can ever find peace by seeking outside because it lies inside. Only when one stops seeking outside and dives within, can one discover the innermost true Self. Unless one finds this authentic source of peace within, one cannot live a meaningful, contented life. This discovery is the basis of all religions. The book, Building a Noble World, is a practical guide for attaining everlasting peace, bliss, and contentment.
Modern research continues to prove the powerful effect of meditation on human behavior. Meditation really works! The mind becomes peaceful, stronger, and more energetic through meditation. Meditation is the fourth state of consciousness beyond the mind’s three states of waking, dreaming, and deep sleep. It can transform an individual’s character, conduct, and behavior. Individuals make a family, families make a society, societies make a nation, and nations make the world. Thus, individuals are the world. When individuals change, the world changes. There is no other way to build a noble world.
This book shares the essence of all that Christ, Buddha, Mahavira, Krishna, Lao tse, Muhammad, Zoroaster, Moses, Guru Nanak, and others gave. Whenever you’re feeling stressed out, just read this book. It can do wonders to calm your mind and recharge you.
