- Insider's Take
Do you know your true calling? Former Vedic monk Jay Shetty shares advice he draws from both scientific research and ancient spiritual texts to help you live a happy, meaningful life. He guides you in learning to embrace detachment and overcome negative self-talk and toxic influence; in building healthy relationships and self-esteem and overcoming your ego; and in living mindfully with compassion and gratitude. Shetty believes each person has his or her own “dharma” – a Sanskrit word that roughly translates into “purpose” or “calling” – and that it’s never too late to discover yours.
