It is not true that
we have only one life to live;
if we can read,
we can live as many more lives
and as many kinds of lives as we wish.

~ S. I. Hayakawa


Letter To Young Readers

by Rebecca Solnit

Dear Readers,
Nearly every book has the same architecture — cover, spine, pages — but you open them onto worlds and gifts far beyond what paper and ink are, and on the inside they are every shape and power.

Some books are toolkits you take up to fix things, from the most practical to the most mysterious, from your house to your heart, or to make things, from cakes to ships.

Some books are wings. Some are horses that run away with you.

Some are parties to which you are invited, full of friends who are there even when you have no friends.

In some books you meet one remarkable person; in others a whole group or even a culture.

Some books are medicine, bitter but clarifying.

Some books are puzzles, mazes, tangles, jungles. Some long books are journeys, and at the end you are not the same person you were at the beginning.

Some are handheld lights you can shine on almost anything.

The books of my childhood were bricks, not for throwing but for building. I piled the books around me for protection and withdrew inside their battlements, building a tower in which I escaped my unhappy circumstances. There I lived for many years, in love with books, taking refuge in books, learning from books a strange data-rich out-of-date version of what it means to be human.

Books gave me refuge. Or I built refuge out of them, out of these books that were both bricks and magical spells, protective spells I spun around myself.

They can be doorways and ships and fortresses for anyone who loves them.

And I grew up to write books, as I’d hoped, so I know that each of them is a gift a writer made for strangers, a gift I’ve given a few times and received so many times, every day since I was six.

~ Rebecca Solnit
Oasis Publications are extremely important part of
Oasis Movement. They are powerful mediums that propagate greatest principles of Life to a large number of people. We might be able to reach limited number of people through our programs on self - development, but, we can surely expand our horizons multiple times through our books.

How To Read Oasis Books?

As inspiration during difficult times:
The concepts in these books are such that they continuously give inspiration to live the ideals of change and growth in day-to-day life. People with different understanding levels about life can relate themselves in respective manner.

To inculcate the ideals and values:
All such books should be read out of strong desire to change and instill the highest of the ideals in our lives.

To teach/share whatever one learns:
Teaching is the best way of learning. If we read a concept as a teacher and we teach them to someone within 48 hours after reading the same, then we can remember and understand the same more deeply and keenly.

Trilogy Series : Gratitude Towards Vimala Thakar

કદાચ મોટા ભાગના વાચકો કે આજની પેઢી વિમલા ઠકારના નામથી બિલકુલ અજાણ હોય તો તેમાં બિલકુલ નવાઈ નથી.

બહુ ઓછાં જીવન એવાં હોય છે જે કોઈ ખોટી હોહા વિના, પ્રસિદ્ધિની ખેવના રાખ્યા વિના, પોતાના છીછરા સ્વ-પ્રચાર વિના, ઉચ્ચ સભાનતા અને ઉચ્ચ નૈતિક મૂલ્યોથી જીવન જીવી જાય છે.

બહુજન સમાજ પણ હજુ ભોળો છે, તે પણ ઢોલનગારા વગાડનારાની જ પાછળ ચાલે છે, તેને શાશ્વત મૂલ્યો જીવનારની હજુ પરખ કે કદર નથી. પરંતુ સાચુકલું જીવન જીવનારાઓનું પગેરું ન રાખવું અને તેમના જીવનના સંદેશને ભાવિ પેઢીઓ માટે પ્રાપ્ય ન બનાવવો તે માનવતા માટે કેટલું મોટું નુકસાન હોઈ શકે. આ પુસ્તકનું સંકલન આવું નુકસાન નિવારવા તરફનો નાનકડો પ્રયત્ન છે.
Three Different Worlds: Spirituality, Health and Stories

ધ્યાનમય જીવનની નોંધપોથી: સ્ટોઈક ફિલસુફી પ્રમાણે સાચે જ સૃષ્ટિમાં કશું જ બદલાતું નથી. એનાં રહસ્યો એ જ છે, જે બદલાય છે તે ખરેખર માયાજાળ જ છે.

૨૧ દિવસમાં કરાવો ડાયાબીટીસની પીછેહઠ: ૨૧મી સદીમાં આટલા મોટા પાયે  પીડાતી માનવતાને બચાવવા પ્રયોગ તરીકે કેવળ ૨૧ દિવસ જ જોઈએ- કેટલું આશ્ચર્યજનક અને છતાં કેટલું વેદનાજનક પણ, કારણ કે આ જ્ઞાન પ્રાપ્ય હોવા છતાં માનવતા પીડાઈ રહી છે.

વૃક્ષમાં બીજ તું: મહાનતાના લક્ષણ તરુણાવસ્થામાં....
વૃક્ષમાં બીજ તું.....મહાનતા તરફના તરુણ-સંઘર્ષની સત્યકથાઓ.


Blessings From Young Hearts! 
There are many lifetime supporters of Oasis Movement who have seen us growing, touching and expanding new boundaries from all these years passed. Hereby, we are sending you a big THANK YOU for always being there as a helping hand and hearty gratitude for supporting and sharing our Oasis Publications. Your words have always been Oxygen of Inspiration! 
Over a hundred titles published by Oasis, most of which are penned by Sanjiv Shah have one common thread running underneath. That is to bring out the best of the inherent human qualities. The universal truths of life and character are woven in these books so naturally and presented so logically that the reader feels enlightened even glancing through a small booklet.

Personally I feel 'Hrdaye kranti' and 'Adhyatamni shodhmaa' have impacted my life immensely. Many of my nagging queries were addressed so convincingly and reassuringly! For me these books are like the real Guru. Any time I have a confusing road ahead, I go to them and inevitably I return with crystal-like clarity. That too, very much my own! Its amazing. Such books defy all lockdown and penetrate within.

 “મહાન હ્રદયોના સારેગમપધનિ” પુસ્તક માણસને અને એનાથી સમાજને વધારે જવાબદાર અને અમદાર ચોક્કસ બનવી રહેશે.

“આયુર્વેદની ભેટ” આ પુસ્તક માનવજાતને Turn Around કરે છે. આવો Turn Around કરે છે એટલે આયુર્વેદ આધારિત જીવન.

“સદીઓના શાણપણ” – You have really done an extremely great job. My congratulations.

સંજીવભાઈના (ઓએસિસ પ્રકાશન) નવા નવા પુસ્તકો મને મળતા રહે છે. વાંચવાની મજા પડે છે. બધાં જ વિચારપ્રેરક પુસ્તકો છે તેથી વાંચવા વધારે ગમે છે.

“મહાન હ્રદયોના સારેગમપધનિ” પુસ્તકની નવી આવૃત્તિ (૨૦૧૧) ખુબ વિશિષ્ઠ રીતે શોભિત છે. ખૂબ આકર્ષક છે. પ્રિન્ટીંગ વગેરે પણ સુઘડ છે. નવા વાચકને ખૂબ ગમશે. પાંચ આવૃત્તિ અને ૧૭૦૦ નકલો વેચાઈ તે તેની અસાધારણ લોકપ્રિયતા બતાવે છે.

“કેળવણીની ભેટ” આ પુસ્તક એ મારો વિષય હોવાથી, એક જ બેઠકે વાંચી ગયો. દરેક મુદ્દાને સરસ રીતે રજુ કર્યાં છે. ખાસ કરીને છેલ્લે, સમાપનમાં, જે લઘુત્તમ કામો કરવાની સૂચનાઓ રજુ કરી છે તે યોગ્ય છે.

It is a well-written book. It is written for all kinds of donors; and very well describes the reasoning of the donors. The last article, "Arpan and Prem" is very good. Anything given with love has the most meaning. Also, I must say that the last three pages in English - quotes from famous people- are worth reading.  Surprisingly, most of your quotations in the book, contain the word "GIVING".

Yes, your book is about giving!

Whether a student parent teacher responsible citizen, or an individual trying to chart his own unique path- there is something to offer to everyone by Oasis Publications. If one reads and engages with the books they can be life changing or will at least provide answers to many questions in the mind. 

If we do not read we shall not be able to provide oxygen to our mind heart and soul. We shall severely impair and stunt our growth. 

- Gopika Kothari
My mother tongue being Hindi initially, I could not read Gujarati. Nearly 15 years back I attended L3 Course by Sanjivbhai and was so inspired that I started learning Gujarati just to read his books. Since then there was no turning back. Then the list of read his books became endless. My latest favorites are 'Aadhyatma Ni Shodh Ma'  and '21 days Diabetes Reversal'.....these books have changed my life for good. Always on lookout for what's new in Oasis Publication.
