In this encouraging, easy-to-read book, Father Jeffrey Kirby offers hope to the tired, overburdened, and unhappy. He reminds us that we are made for happiness. But he goes beyond that, showing us the path to achieving happiness. It's not a new path. In fact, Jesus showed us the way in the Beatitudes, but Kingdom of Happiness reveals how these aren't merely nice sayings, they are powerful ways of living.

THE HAPPY RAJ is a religious and a philosophical novel about happiness and suffering. It uses Buddhist philosophy to analyze human behavior. THE HAPPY RAJ is about billionaire Prof. Happiraja and his project to create his dream KINGDOM OF HAPPINESS in the beautiful island of the Happy Raj. Happiraja plans to help any one to move up the happiness ladder towards eternal happiness levels, with his Sotapatti Meditation Program. In Lord Buddha's words Sotapatti level is higher than that of being a World King. It is in this environment that The Happy Raj saga continues to move into the fourth novel. The Plot Billionaire Prof. Happiraja retires prematurely and moves into The Happy Raj to create an nvironment for stress and mind refinement exercises. His project gets derailed when one of his supervisors, Deva dies mysteriously and his partner, hermaphrodite Cicci jumps in to the burning funeral pyre. Dada, the former owner of the island, destituted by a tsunami wave, is invited as his guest and becomes the first target for his happiness operations. Appearance of a ghost in his old cottage sends 72-year old Dada into the Medical Centre with a heart problem. When Dada leaves for home, his cottage had been refurbished to prevent him falling sick again. Playing with the powerful notebook computer gifted by the Professor when he left the Medical Centre, Dada, a designs engineer, plans to bounce back into active life .When Rev. Aloka arrives to cleanse the island of the ghosts, Dada gets interested in meditation. Two of top Happy Raj executives wear yellow robes to follow the Sotapatti Meditation program in search of Nirvana. Dada gets ordained and becomes the Trustee of the Temple of Happiness. A tsunami wave batters the island immediately after its inauguration, destroying almost all buildings. Prof. Happiraja plans to rebuild the Kingdom immediately. CHAPTER ONE: THE UNIVERSAL LAW OF IMPERMANENCE The fluorescence of the hidden tube lights faltered flickered and disappeared eclipsing the room with a thin cloud of darkness. The shadows hiding like ghosts under the tables, chairs, cupboards, computers and stools, changed their positions, sizes and lengths to extend their tentacles looking for new areas for their control, after suffering several hours under the unfriendly rays of the fluorescent tubes. When a new source of light emerged, creeping stealthily into the room through the narrow openings in the red and yellow curtains that protected the office room of the President; the shadows readjusted their areas of control. The murmur of the air-conditioners faltered and faded off reluctantly to an untimely death. So was the hand of the electric clock that was fixed on to the cream colored walls of the office of the President of the State Polytechnic, Prof. Happiraja. The UPS attached to his computer screeched desperately asking for help and guidance. Embarrassed by the unfriendly disturbances to the serenity of his room, darkened by the sudden failure of the power supply, Prof. Happiraja extended his long and fleshy left hand, covered with a white long-sleeved national costume, and used his plump thumb to ensure complete silence in the room. He thought that the power failure could be due to the political forces operating in the country. He jerked his head that was pivoting at the top of a tall and a slender body to look at the hands of the clock that had lost its indefatigable desire for movement. Its hands told the retiring chief that the time was 9:34; exactly twenty six minutes more for his last meeting with the members of the academic staff who were getting ready to say good bye to their beloved boss....

We are bound in the music of life where we dance and weave within that glorious melody, or what some call God. Now, God has said that we are the very image of God (Genesis 1:27), and as images of God, we have the inborn ability to have Joy and Happiness forever present in our life. The author, David L. Peters, is an octogenarian whose life has always been filled with joy, regardless of outward appearances. The wonders of the Kingdom of Heaven is everyones birthright, if you know how to let your Creator and the Universe enter your spirit. Jesus put it succinctly: The Kingdom of God lies within (Luke 17:21). The Kingdom of God, Paradise, Heaven: these lie within you, right now, waiting for you to only turn and see, and join in the dance. Paradise is right within us, but how do we unlock the door to this wonder of joy? This book lays a path open that the author has followed for almost 80 years, starting as a young boy in rural Ohio, and it operates as advertised. No matter how things look in life, how bad it seems, all one need do is look deeper within and find the joy that can fill life: life is good! The life of abundant joy and happiness is yours for the asking. Dip your toe in the living waters, and taste the Beauty of God that is awaiting.

New York Times Best Seller Longlisted for the Man Booker Prize Named a Best Book of 2017 by NPR, Amazon, Kirkus, The Washington Post, Newsday, and the Hudson Group A dazzling, richly moving new novel by the internationally celebrated author of The God of Small Things The Ministry of Utmost Happiness takes us on an intimate journey of many years across the Indian subcontinent—from the cramped neighborhoods of Old Delhi and the roads of the new city to the mountains and valleys of Kashmir and beyond, where war is peace and peace is war. It is an aching love story and a decisive remonstration, a story told in a whisper, in a shout, through unsentimental tears and sometimes with a bitter laugh. Each of its characters is indelibly, tenderly rendered. Its heroes are people who have been broken by the world they live in and then rescued, patched together by acts of love—and by hope. The tale begins with Anjum—who used to be Aftab—unrolling a threadbare Persian carpet in a city graveyard she calls home. We encounter the odd, unforgettable Tilo and the men who loved her—including Musa, sweetheart and ex-sweetheart, lover and ex-lover; their fates are as entwined as their arms used to be and always will be. We meet Tilo’s landlord, a former suitor, now an intelligence officer posted to Kabul. And then we meet the two Miss Jebeens: the first a child born in Srinagar and buried in its overcrowded Martyrs’ Graveyard; the second found at midnight, abandoned on a concrete sidewalk in the heart of New Delhi. As this ravishing, deeply humane novel braids these lives together, it reinvents what a novel can do and can be. The Ministry of Utmost Happiness demonstrates on every page the miracle of Arundhati Roy’s storytelling gifts.
