Ashu Khanna’s insightful book, ‘I Am Abundance, Live Life with Mastery’ is a masterclass in letting go of the ego. Each Chapter reveals another path to genuine self reflection and inner contentment…Awareness is crucial if we want to change our behavior for the better… I recommend keeping Ashu’s book on your nightstand so you can reach for it everyday, to absorb and reabsorb its inspiring lessons.

Most of us spend our lives surviving rather than living. This is the pattern imposed on us when we are forced to earn a living in a large, often hostile environment. Ashu shows us how to meet this challenge and come out smiling.

Ashu’s book, ‘I Am Perfection, Live Life Joyfully’, reveals the journey of a seeker searching for the goal in life that every human being has - happiness…. It is inspiring to see how she has used the lessons of The Gita to change from being sensitive to being compassionate, from being ambitious to being fearless, from worrying to being joyful in the present moment…each one of us can easily relate to Ashu’s quest for happiness.

It is fascinating to read how Ashu has captured her journey of transformation in ‘I Am Perfection, Live Life Joyfully’. She has, in a comprehensible language, beautifully explained that Joy is our true nature…that we must learn to shift our focus from ‘what is missing’ to ‘what exists’…Ashu emphasizes that “outer” perfection is a myth…. Life is beautiful and we must learn to take leadership to be able to play the game of life to the fullest.

I have enjoyed reading Ashu Khanna’s book “I Am Perfection, Live Life Joyously”. The book gives the reader the path to finding how to live with happiness. Ashu encourages us to trust our inner instinct and recognize that it is our fears and perceptions that block us…She also describes that we should live life as an explorer and that failure or not knowing is a part of life. When we are true to our inner self, we are joyful and able to influence & impact others.

This book will appeal to all on a spiritual journey irrespective of how much distance one has travelled. The power of the book is in the authenticity of experiences described and the courage of self-disclosure in a most honest fashion. Everyone can relate to some or most of Ashu's experiences and get help for accelerating their spiritual progress.

For happiness, joy and evolution... It is important to live a life of mindfulness. Mindfulness is an outcome of correct thinking and correct action. You can achieve that through checking your own behavior and mind from time to time. Ashu's book will you help create the direction.

Ashu describes her own life journey powerfully and engagingly, without recriminations, self pity or victimhood. In the process, she has also captured the human conditions we all and I could see and hear my own fears, anger and assorted flaws so clearly. I love that she has turned living life into a simple and joyful experience that we can all aspire to.

I would compare her discussion somewhat like what Lord Krishna had with Arjuna, where Lord Krishna did not teach him how to fight, he merely helped him clear his mind.

Ashu has worked as a coach with my team on a few occasions to help improve teamwork and team dynamics. Working with a group of type A investment bankers can be pretty tough. Ashu was able to draw out the team to share their views openly in a constructive manner.

...having Ashu as your coach is a God send. Because, Ashu's primary focus is not limited to addressing the immediate areas of concern but to transform you inside out. She helps you (if you let her) discover and reinforce your own core beliefs, values and approaches. Her approach is to focus on you such that you can grow across all dimensions, making you capable of reaching the "here" seamlessly... and empowering you to reach the future "theres" as well!

It was an authentic space to embrace one's vulnerability - a space that Ashu Khanna created for a group of SSE India fellows to have conversations which would otherwise never happen. In her true spirit & passion to help people unleash their potential and find their own answers by expressing what is, what they wish and what they are doing about it?, She inspired many to come forward and have difficult conversations.

I opened the book, I Am Perfection, intending to glance through a few pages, but I ended up engrossed and finished it in one go. Credit goes to Ashu’s storytelling style and honesty.…The beautiful voice from the heart, recounting joys like singing Bollywood numbers and walking on grass, makes the imagery powerful. This book is truly beautiful.
