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.”
One of the 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?
Peace, happiness, or perfect love – that’s what everyone is seeking. Nobody can ever find it by seeking outside because it lies inside. Only when one stops seeking outside and dives within, can one discover the blissful inner Self. Unless one finds the authentic source of peace within, one cannot live a meaningful, fulfilling life. This discovery is the foundation of all religions. The book, Building a Noble World, is a trustworthy guide for attaining everlasting bliss and contentment.
Drawing from some of the greatest prophets and philosophers throughout the annals of history, Jhawar conveys a very simple yet profound message: There will never be peace in the world until people first discover peace within themselves.

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.

From the Author
“Suddenly, I felt a great impact of a rising force within me. The intensity of this rising kundalini force was so tremendous that my body lifted up a little and fell flat into the aisle; my eyeglasses flew off. As I lay there with my eyes closed, I could see a continuous fountain of dazzling white lights erupting within me. In brilliance, these lights were brighter than the sun but possessed no heat at all. I was experiencing the thought-free state of “I am,” realizing that “I” have always been, and will continue to be, eternal. I was fully conscious and completely aware while I was experiencing the pure “I am,” a state of supreme bliss.” — Chapter 4, “Shaktipat: The Way to Spirituality,”
