Welcome to the Booklicious podcast, where we explore the fascinating world of literature and the authors behind them. I’m your host, Akhil raj, and today, we’ll be discussing the book “8 Rules of Love: How to Find It, Keep It, and Let It Go” by Jay Shetty.
When it comes to love and relationships, we’re often thrown into the deep end without any guidance. We look to romance movies and pop culture to guide us through, but Jay Shetty’s book aims to provide a more comprehensive and insightful approach to navigating the world of love. Join me as we dive into this book and explore the eight rules that Jay Shetty has outlined to help us find, keep, and let go of love.
To start, let’s talk about the book’s format. “8 Rules of Love” is a comprehensive guide that draws upon insights from therapists, the Vedas, and common sense. Although it’s not groundbreaking, it’s a useful guide for those who are new to the world of love and relationships. It’s not the kind of book that you read cover-to-cover in one sitting. Instead, it’s packed full of exercises, anecdotes, scientific studies, and the wisdom of the Vedas.
Jay Shetty spent three years living as a monk in an ashram, studying the Vedas, which were written more than five thousand years ago. His book is rooted in Vedic principles, applying spiritual concepts to earthly relationships. Shetty explains that the Vedas describe four stages of life, and these are the classrooms in which we’ll learn the rules of love so that we can recognize it and make the most of it when it comes our way.
The book follows the order of the ashrams, which parallel the progression of relationships: from preparing for love, to practicing love, to protecting love, to perfecting love. Shetty outlines eight rules that he believes are essential for finding, keeping, and letting go of love. These rules are rooted in Vedic principles and offer a fresh perspective on how to navigate the world of love and relationships.
While the book offers a fresh perspective on love and relationships, some readers may find the exercises and advice sections overwhelming. The book is packed with questionnaires and assessments that can make it feel like you’re investing hours with a therapist. However, for thirty dollars, it might be quicker and easier than weekly therapy.
In summary, “8 Rules of Love” is a comprehensive guide that draws upon insights from therapists, the Vedas, and common sense. While it’s not groundbreaking, it’s a useful guide for those who are new to the world of love and relationships. The eight rules outlined by Jay Shetty are rooted in Vedic principles and offer a fresh perspective on how to navigate the world of love and relationships.
