Ignite Your Heart and Soul with Sara Troy and her guest Feroze Dada, on air from January 18th
A Disciple describes a singular journey with a universal appeal, on the path of Perennial Wisdom. There are lessons for us all as we recognise the call from our inner spirit, our yearning for ‘something other’ in a materialistic world that so often leaves us dissatisfied.
There is another way for us to live, and A Disciple asks important questions about faith and spirituality and connects us with the power of meditation. The author believes passionately that it is a meditation that provides the foundation for a caring and compassionate future.
The story is told with engaging candour, with tales from mythology, quotations from Rumi, and references to Sufi texts all adding colour to the Wisdom Teachings he is receiving. The wise ones spoke in parables and metaphor because that is the form that penetrates and transcends our defenses. We go to some deeper part of ourselves; non-linear and non-cerebral, which is what meditation is.
A Disciple is a fascinating exploration of how meditation can not only awaken our latent potential to live the best lives we can, but also transform the world.

Feroze Dada was born in Karachi, and has lived and worked for most of his life in London. He worked
in the finance sector and was entrepreneurial in helping several media start-up companies. A decade
ago, his life changed when he went to Myanmar to visit his wife’s family. He became deeply involved
in working with a Buddhist monastery in Shan Province, helping it over a number of years to become
self-sufficient, supporting as it does some 1200 orphan children. SEE HERE
He became a meditation practitioner and continued to work with his Sufi teacher, learning how to
live a fulfilled and meaningful life, and by helping others.
He is the interviewer and producer of the online TV series Discovering Humanity and Our One World,
and author of Children of the Revolution; A Spiritual Journey to Burma and Buddhism.
As well as his work as founder of The Inle Trust Charity, set up to help the children at the Phaya
Taung monastery in Myanmar, he teaches and promotes meditation at The Sylvan Healing Sanctuary
in London. This is a community of healers, teachers and practitioners that offer energy healing,
meditation and mindfulness.
His wife MuMu (Farida) is from Taunggyi, Myanmar. They have two children; Nadir and Sumaya, and
grandchild Layla. They divide their time between their homes in London and Italy.
NEWS & REVIEWS
You may have found yourself reading these words out of curiosity or fascination but perhaps there’s a wish, like Feroze, to know. His book is a bridge to you from a world that is unseen by most except those that are seekers.
These pages are filled with personal anecdotal experiences that may seem straight from a fairy tale. However, they’re the experiences of a seeker who’s spent many years looking for his truth. His faith and acceptance of his experiences has allowed these pages to emerge from the mists into reality.
It’s more than a good story, it’s the path of one who’s been willing to plant his seeds of experience to build a bridge to us so you can go on to plant your own seeds as seekers, allow them to germinate and build your own bridges to the unknown.
These words will never be a substitute for your own experiences but they can act as a guide for you from another’s journey.

When Feroze asked me to review his book, I replied that it would be a privilege and an honour to do so; it has not disappointed, this is a book which tells a wonderful story.
I practise as a doctor and surgeon, so professionally have much interest in the sections of the book devoted to healing; these are impressive and riveting. However, I also read the book from the position of a Seeker; this book is full of wonderful insights, into seeking the Kingdom of God within. It incorporates practical advice as to the different types of meditative exercises Feroze has mastered and his desire to share these things with fellow seekers to our potential betterment.
This is a timely and brave book as the world adjusts to the Covid 19 pandemic and across the globe there is an enhanced desire to care for our planet and ourselves, not just in mind and body but also in our souls.
This book shows us routes to spiritual well-being, via caring for others, meditation and prayer. I have always described Feroze as my Sufi Moslem, Buddhist, Franciscan Christian friend; this book confirms me in that view.
Feroze has much to share and he does it beautifully.
