Strong-minded and independent Julia Bernay comes to London to study medicine and become a doctor--a profession that has only just opened up to women. She witnesses a serious accident, and through her quick actions saves the life of an ambitious young barrister named Michael Stephenson.Coming from a family that long ago lost its money and its respectability, Michael Stephenson has achieved what many would have thought was impossible. Hard work and an aptitude for the law have enabled him to rise above his family's stigma and set him on the path to wealth and recognition. But his well-laid plans are upended when the accident brings Julia into his life. Michael soon discovers he's met a woman every bit as stubborn and determined to make her mark on the world as he is. Sparks fly--but will they find common ground?

    Being Versus Becoming presents the timeless wisdom of the Vedanta philosophy, which has its roots in the ancient teachings of Sanatan Dharma. It therefore weaves and blends meticulously while explaining to the reader the importance of living in the Present, in the Now. Being Versus Becoming offers you the opportunity to peel through the layers taking you to the core of the Truth of who you are and your purpose in life; wisdom attained through the rigorous penance and personal experience of the ancient seers. They saw how human nature attempts to achieve happiness by Doing and Becoming which is propelled by greed and desire. The secret to happiness as revealed by these ancient seers is that it is only when the mind loses the fascination for the worldly joys and turns inward to contemplate upon the Higher Self that one can rejoice in the source of the infinite joy within. It is then that he ceases to Become and is immersed in the Light of his Being, his true nature thus ending the search for happiness.
