Vijay Eswaran came from having very little cash flow while getting into the multilevel marketing corporate world in a tough Asian market, to making one of Forbes Asia’s richest entrepreneurs lists, an accomplishment he sees as no small thing. But Vijay Eswaran is about so much more than that. He’s a man who believes in helping people find inner peace with themselves and others around them. That’s why he wrote the bestselling book In The Sphere Of Silence in 2005 to explain how spiritualism is necessary in the corporate world.
The idea behind Vijay Eswaran’s book is to encourage entrepreneurs to take time away from handheld electronics and computers to spend time in silence and meditation.
Vijay Eswaran believes especially as today’s world uses more and more mobile devices the book is as relevant as ever. Eswaran has also spoken about civil rights leader Mahatma Gandhi and how he taught similar things while leading the liberation movement in India.
