Over the last many years, I have been asking one question to the participants in my workshops, “How many of you can say that you are truly happy, with zero complaints with life?” Typically, the number of hands raised in the air remains in a single digit.
Why so? Most of us are enjoying better living conditions and have better financial security than our parents or grandparents; however, our happiness quotient remains low. Somewhere along the way, the ideas we created about success, wealth, aspirations, happiness, possessions, and relationships became agonizing. They rob us of joy and peace of mind.
Our desires never stop growing; dissatisfaction or complaints keep building up. Although there is nothing wrong with making money, getting famous, climbing the ladder of social success; perhaps there is a problem in our understanding of life and how it functions. Maybe, we have lost the sense of proportion in life.
Saksham Life Management is a small step towards reclaiming the tranquillity and bliss that also happen to be our true nature. In this journey of self-exploration through practical and easily implementable Sutras, we intend to optimize the true potential of the body-mind-energy matrix so that our efficiency and productivity reach their pinnacle while making us blissful.
“I met Sanjiv Pandey Sir during our training as DANICS officer at UTCS Academy in Delhi. Sir took classes on life management and honestly it was the most interesting part of our classroom programs. I used to look forward for sir's sessions. There is a unique positive aura in sir's personality. Whole environment becomes cheerful with his presence. He develops a personal connect with the person such that you can share everything with him, be it your personal or professional life and trust me, the advice you get is the best. I remember one session on breathing technique where sir taught us how to breathe in the right manner so that it helps in controlling anger, anxiety and increases our efficiency. It was such a simple yet profound thing and I implemented that in my daily life. I changed for good after that.”

“Sanjiv Sir taught me how to keep life simple. He helped me learn how to take the toughest decisions of life with a rational mind. He taught me to think with my 'higher mind'. I learned how to manage the times of self-doubt and lows of life. It’s a blessing to have someone wiser than you and also understands you like a friend. So, Sanjiv sir is like a friend, mentor and inspiration.”

"I feel fortunate to have come in contact with Mr. Sanjiv during a very tough phase of my life. After our initial 1-2 discussions with him, I felt everything is fine and dealt with situations with a more stable mind. Through our discussions over a long period of time since then, I got a chance to learn multiple things in life from him, be it related to health, mind, spirituality, personal finance, self-improvement, etc.. I have put those learnings into action and have experienced the benefits. It is true that one can read about any topic in books or internet, but nothing can substitute the benefit of concentrated knowledge backed by experience.
He has been a wonderful mentor/coach for me and I can reach out to him for anything in life."
