It was just by chance Murli Menon got introduced to
Zen nine years ago. A management student those days in a Pune college,
a paralysing road accident led him to discover his neighbour, a Zen
master. Forever keen on tapping the unknown, always harbouring
interest in feeling what could not be seen, a bed-ridden Murli bit
into the opportunity thrown in by this friendly neighbour associated
with the Swami Rajneesh ashram nearby.
attributes it all to Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP). NLP, he
explains, is a school of psychological thought thought which believes
that mind power can cure any disease including paralysis, amnesia and
"And life has changed since," declares
Murli. Though at the outset of this zen trip, he did not know that it
could heal his crippling injury! Coinciding his visit to New Delhi
this week with the launch of his second book, "ZenLP - The Power
To Suceed", this non-resident Keralite from Ahmedabad got into a
strict Zen diet, chose Sambhalpuri kurtas over his woollens made of
animal fur and began to meditate for long hours "to harness the
infinite power" of his mind.
"I started sticking to the diet which is free
from animal products. Even milk and milk products are not allowed. I
began to meditate. This gave me energy to bring life back to track,
something which no doctor was brave enough to predict," he says,
all of which he talks about in this Sage publication and more.
In this revolutionary volume, author Murli Menon develops
his theory of ZeNLP - a unique perspective on how success at work and
in life can be achieved by self-realization and introspection. ZeNLP
combines the principles of neuro-linguistic programming and Zen
meditation and is based on the premise that the entire universe is
built of an energy he terms `cosmic consciousness' of which each of us
is a part.
This objective-oriented book introduces the reader to practical
tips which will: improve conceptual understanding, intuitive ability
and strategy skills; deepen understanding of spiritual scriptures thus
leading to self-development and growth; improve memory and
concentration through regular meditation; assist in evolving
strategies needed for generating instant results in today's
competitive environment; and help in programming the mind to tap the
cybernetic mechanism within it.
Murli Menon has done extensive study in healing methods of both
Eastern and Western Parts of the world and has developed techniques to
combine ZeNLP with natural healing. He has been awarded the
International Award for Distinguished Leadership by American
Biographical Institute, USA.
