      Bio
      Louise Hay was an inspirational teacher, incredible visionary, and self-help pioneer who educated millions since the 1984 publication of her bestseller, You Can Heal Your Life, which has more than 50 million copies in print worldwide and spent 16 weeks on the New York Times bestsellers list. She appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show and many other TV and radio programs both in the U.S. and abroad. Renowned for demonstrating the power of affirmations to bring about self-healing and positive change, Louise was the author of more than 30 books, including the bestsellers The Power Is Within You and Heal Your Body. In addition to her books, Louise produced numerous audio and video programs, card decks, online courses, and other resources for leading a healthy, joyous, and fulfilling life. Louise was dubbed “the closest thing to a living saint” by the Australian media and in 1985, Louise began her famous support group, “The Hayride,” with six men diagnosed with AIDS. By 1988, the group had grown to a weekly gathering of 800 people and had moved to an auditorium in West Hollywood. In 1987, what began as a small venture in the living room of her home turned into Hay House, Inc.: the largest publisher of self-help books, events, and courses. Hay House has sold millions of books and products worldwide and now has offices in California, New York, London, Sydney, Johannesburg, and New Delhi. The non-profit Hay Foundation, established by Louise in 1986, continues to support organizations that enhance the quality of life for people, animals, and our environment.

    The Light We Give How Sikh Wisdom Can Transform Your Life Simran Jeet Singh

    • Marketing Copy

      Description
      An author and human rights activist offers his inspiring approach to a happier, more ethical way of life by embracing Sikh teachings.

      In The Light We Give, Simran Jeet Singh—writer, educator, and human rights activist—shares a powerful approach to living a purposeful and rewarding life. Growing up in Texas the son of Indian immigrants, he has confronted racism, bullying, and ethnic slurs throughout his life: at school, on the athletic field, in his San Antonio neighborhood, and on the streets of New York City. Instead of growing bitter or angry, Singh draws from Sikh teachings to seek out the good in every situation and find positive ways to direct his energy. These tenets of love, caring, and service to others have empowered him to forge a life of connection and a commitment to justice that have brought him deep happiness and made him a national figure in the areas of diversity, inclusion, and social justice.   



      The Light We Give is a new approach to building a personal vision of ethical living in which love, caring, and service go hand in hand with personal happiness. This book speaks to those who are inspired to take on positive change but don’t know where to begin. To those who crave the chance to be compassionate but are afraid of being vulnerable. To those who seek the bravery to confront hatred with true love. As a self-described “brown-skinned, turban-wearing, bearded Sikh born and raised in Texas,” Singh has spent his life reaching beyond his comfort zone to practice this deeper form of living. He believes that everyone can learn the skills and insights that have kept him engaged and led him to a commitment to activism without becoming consumed by anger, self-pity, or burnout. Part memoir, part spiritual journey, The Light We Give is a transformative book of hope that shows how each of us can turn away from fear and uncertainty and move toward renewal and positive change.
      Bio
      Simran Jeet Singh, Ph.D., is the Executive Director of the Inclusive America Project at the Aspen Institute.

      Praise for The Light We Give:

      “In this lucid blend of memoir and self-help, Singh…reflects on being Sikh in the U.S. and shares life lessons gleaned from Sikhism…Singh’s fleet-footed storytelling seamlessly moves between personal stories, Sikh theology and history, and thoughtful musings on what it means to live by a Sikh philosophy, adding up to an exemplary meditation on the faith. This has a lot to offer.” — Publishers Weekly (starred review)

      The Light We Give is a refreshing look at how we can connect—and reconnect—with one another. Simran Jeet Singh’s moving story of growing up a turban-wearing Sikh American in South Texas draws from wisdom that all of us need as it charts a new way forward.” —R.C. Buford, CEO of the San Antonio Spurs

      “Clever, informative, and very accessible, Singh’s first book for adults explores tenets of the Sikh faith and applies them to everyday life…he uses relatable humor and amusing anecdotes to connect with readers about his faith and show them how they, too, can apply it to their lives…Readers will come away from the book wanting to be better themselves and to work for positive change in the world.” —Booklist

      “An accessible work that combines personal testimony of a fascinating and little-understood ethnic and religious minority in America…A worthwhile and readable introduction to Sikhi and a strong testament to peaceful living.” —Kirkus, STARRED REVIEW

      “I’ve appreciated Simran’s writing for years now, and I really love this book. The Light We Give is a beautiful reflection of how so many Sikhs experience our world and what Sikh teachings have to offer all of us today. This is an essential book for people who care about kindness, justice, and living a good life.” —Jagmeet Singh, leader of Canada’s New Democratic Party

      “Beautiful, profound, and above all transformative, The Light We Give is a book that will not only stay with you but change you. Through harrowing stories of personal experiences and a rarely seen exploration of the tenets of the Sikh faith, Simran Jeet Singh calls us to have empathy and love and to operate in them. This book couldn’t be more timely.” —Angie Thomas, author of The Hate U Give

      “I love this book: The riveting story of Simran Jeet Singh’s life growing up as a Sikh kid in San Antonio with his brown skin and turban, written so beautifully, both somehow exciting and humble. It is rich in wisdom, religious and personal, and it is absolutely charming.” —Anne Lamott, author of Dusk, Night, Dawn, and Help, Thanks, Wow

      “I found this book utterly fascinating. A compelling and enthralling introduction to Sikh traditions that will speak to people of every faith—and those who are looking for one.  In its own unique way it is an important contribution to interfaith relations in our country. “  —James Martin, SJ, author of Learning to Pray

      The Light We Give is an extraordinary book. With moral insight and an abiding commitment to make this world better one act at a time, Simran Singh pierces through the depressing noise of these dark days with a gentleness and care that soothes and inspires.  Sikh wisdom and love leap from every page.  After reading this book, I want to be better. I want to do better!” —Eddie S. Glaude, Jr., author of Begin Again

      Thich Nhat Hanh was a world-renowned spiritual teacher and peace activist. Born in Vietnam in 1926, he became a Zen Buddhist monk at the age of sixteen. Over seven decades of teaching, he published more than 100 books, which have sold more than four million copies in the United States alone. Exiled from Vietnam in 1966 for promoting peace, his teachings on Buddhism as a path to social and political transformation are responsible for bringing the mindfulness movement to Western culture. He established the international Plum Village Community of Engaged Buddhism in France, now the largest Buddhist monastery in Europe and the heart of a growing community of mindfulness practice centers around the world. He passed away in 2022 at the age of 95 at his root temple, Tu Hieu, in Hue, Vietnam.
