If you’ve ever felt a spiritual calling, and felt there was more
to your life than just the day to day grind, then do we have the
show for you.
Today I’ll be talking with Karan Bajaj, a #1 best-selling indian
author about his brilliant new novel The Yoga of Max’s Discontent,

sabbatical, literal or metaphorical to get in alignment, find our
path, and find our deepest self.
