Welcome to a new beginning!

Best way to start something is to get started. It may not be grand, but every action will produce some reaction that’ll bring you closer to your path and success.

It’s a start of a journey of self realisation and soul searching. BeZiva is a medium through which we want to share learnings, knowledge and ideas, gathered from books, religious texts and words from various saints and teachers. There is despair, confusion and pain in this world and BeZiva strives to provide a solution, sense of relief and hope to any soul searching for answers.
