Jan 4, 2020 which is marked as the United Nations Braille Day, saw actor John Abraham, Brand Ambassador to the National Association for the Blind (NAB) in India, unveiling the Hindi Braille Edition of the book, Karma Sutra – Cracking the Karmic Code at Le Sutra – the world’s first Indian art hotel.
Authored by Hingori, Karma Sutra, the first in a series of four books from Hingori Sutras Publishers, explains the Indian doctrine of Karma and serves as a DIY (do-it-yourself) manual for those who want to harness the invaluable wisdom of spiritual masters. If this book is lived in practice, it can serve as a tool to carve a better future in this lifetime and earn the karmic wealth that will command one’s ethereal status after death.
As part of its CSR, Le Sutra subsidizes the marketing costs of the Hingori Sutras, thus ensuring that their reach is amplified. Approximately 2.2 billion* of the world’s population are either blind or visually impaired and it is therefore imperative that they too have the opportunity to read books like Karma Sutra that have much to offer to humanity. The Hingori Sutras has directed its efforts towards transcripting its books in braille.

According to John Abraham, Brand Ambassador for NAB, “Braille is more than just a language for the blind; it is the currency of their thoughts. Books in Braille allow the visually challenged to expand their horizons, discover new worlds and enrich their life. Therefore, I am happy to unveil a book like Karma Sutra – Cracking the Karmic Code.’
NAB works to empower the visually challenged, encouraging and enabling them to lead a life of dignity and productivity.

The Hingori Sutras are a series of easy-to-read books that collectively distil the spiritual wisdom of the ancient Indian siddh gurus.
Written by someone who, within a span of a few years, transcended the journey from student to teacher of spiritualism, these books bridge the gap between ignorance and wisdom by demystifying spiritual concepts and practices. They could help you identify your path and hasten your footsteps.
Led by the mission of connecting people to their spiritual selves, the Hingori Sutras have a vision of leading hundreds into sainthood within the next 10 years. While to some this may sound outlandish, this is an achievable task because we have already seen 40% traction in results.
Le Sutra – the world’s first Indian Art Hotel is the culmination of the work of 120 artists, sculptors and designers. Taking from a palette of philosophy, myth, art and history, Le Sutra’s canvas is painted with the colours of illusive Indian-ness. At Le Sutra we have tried to weave thousands of years of Indian ethos in a narrative through contemporary Indian Art.
The hotel is based on the concept of the gunas which are tendencies and attributes that exist within people, nature and things; their thoughts and emotions, so essential to the evolution of consciousness.
