About Ian Gardner

Ian Gardner was born on the 20th February 1934 in Sri Lanka, then Ceylon, and christened Basil Ian Gunewardene. He was born two months prematurely and nearly died five times in his first two months. He moved to Australia in September 1969 where he changed his surname to Gardner. From childhood he had an enquiring mind and an innate interest in the supernatural. Since 1986, nineteen years of meditation, "searching within", reading and revelations have culminated in this free book which has been nine years in the making. Further writings followed and all his writings are available to all on the Internet free of charge. There is more information in the preface of the book.

    Honnestly, the first choice that came to mind was the life i have now. This might not be the best choice to make, since i feel i am here to learn. I can imagine life in the slums or life as a millionaire, so i know about both’s limitations and both’s possibilities. The extremes as a billionaire or a refugee in a camp, i have no idea what life is supposed to be, but i’m sure it’s worth living, and i’m equally sure both are extremely challenging hence rewarding with experience (in retrospect that is).
    However, as longer as i live, i seem to think more and more about the limitations and questionableness of karma and life after death or reincarnation. I think it would be better to live to the fullest now and if something comes after this, in whatever form, be grateful for that too.
    Hence, it doesn’t matter.

Well, what do you say?
