Dipa Sanatani is the CEO at Sanatanco. She is the author of The Little Light and The Merchant of Stories. Dipa runs two online platforms: The Mercantile and The Sanatan Chronicle with her editorial team. Originally from Singapore, she spent 12 years working internationally in: Australia, Israel, Japan and China in the private, government and corporate sectors. She sees herself as a humble traveller who has had the tremendous privilege to travel across the Seven Seas with the greatest weapon of all--the gift of words. A gift that can either harm or heal.

"At Sanatanco, we believe that words are a priceless gift. A gift as valuable as the diamond we either receive or give as a gift to that special someone we want to spend the rest of our live

Admittedly, the language it is written in can be difficult to understand and some of the concepts can be inaccessible without the proper context. As for myself, I have been fascinated by the ancient texts all my life--even as a young person.

During my early 20s--with a fair bit of education under my belt--I began to truly immerse myself into what the ancient ones were trying to tell us. I now think some of it got lost in translation, some of it simply got lost, and some of it just needed to be updated--much like a software update--for the modern era.

Spirituality and material existence are often depicted as opposites. Life is an assortment of many experiences that cannot be neatly put into boxes. Over the years, I've met many people who espouse the doctrine that to embark on the path of spirituality; one has to renounce the material world. Or conversely, that if one is flourishing materially--that person is somehow not spiritual or perhaps even a soulless capitalist.

Everything is interrelated and interlinked. One cannot exist without the other. We all have our own unique path in life. Not everyone is destined for great wealth nor is everyone destined to be a spiritual leader. In The Little Light, I discuss how every soul is born with a unique soul task--one that varies from individual to individual over a continuum of lifetimes.

The Little Light is a testament to the innate curiosity that I believe every soul is born with. Through the Little Light's journey in the Cosmic Womb--where it meets the nine planets--I narrate the story of a soul's journey through life, death and rebirth. The book is a product of years of research, my own quest to understand of the hidden mysteries of life; and the Mythology of the Cosmos that has inspired, entertained and educated mankind for millennia.

It is my hope that readers enjoy rediscovering these ancient myths with a modern twist. (less)

In light of that, whilst one can be born with a talent for entrepreneurship; one cannot simply be born an entrepreneur.

An individual has to actualise and materialise this by embarking on a journey to develop and harness one's potential. The journey is not easy. It is not for the faint-hearted. Talent is a key factor, but talent alone is not enough. One must also have desire, drive, ambition and tenacity to fulfil one's potential. Hard work is also a key ingredient for which there is no substitute.

There are also numerous external factors over which one has no control that play a significant role in one's journey as an entrepreneur. I discuss these events in my book The Merchant of Stories. It is how one learns to adapt and thrive in the face of adversity that will differentiate those who dream from those who do.

Whilst growing up in a business family undoubtedly played a significant role in giving me a solid foundation in business, not everyone in my family is an entrepreneur. That is why, ultimately, I believe that the true entrepreneurs are self-made. (less)

“I believe that when we come into this world, we are not promised glory, fortune, fame, a happy family or really anything at all. All we get is the journey. And in these pages, you will find mine. -Dipa to her Grandfather”
Dipa Sanatani, The Merchant of Stories: A Creative Entrepreneur's Journey

“You will always be the Matriarch—the Queen of Hearts. Your hand rocked my cradle, and you ruled my world.”
Dipa Sanatani, The Merchant of Stories: A Creative Entrepreneur's Journey

“Every entrepreneur begins with a desire and a vision. Along the way, one inevitably encounters the difficulties of manifesting one’s vision in the world. But that’s part of the journey. It isn’t easy, but with one step at a time and one day at a time, you will get there.”
Dipa Sanatani, The Merchant of Stories: A Creative Entrepreneur's Journey

“Fate gives all of us three teachers, three friends, three enemies, and three great loves in our lives. But these twelve are always disguised, and we can never know which one is which until we’ve loved them, left them, or fought them.”
Gregory David Roberts, Shantaram

“Love is the opposite of power. That's why we fear it so much.”
Gregory David Roberts, Shantaram

“Every virtuous act is inspired by a dark secret.”
Gregory David Roberts, Shantaram

“The bond that links your true family is not one of blood, but of respect and joy in each other's life. Rarely do members of one family grow up under the same roof.”
Richard Bach, Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah

“Remember where you came from, where you're going, and why you created this mess you got yourself into in the first place.”
Richard Bach, Illusions
