A Search for Those with'Something Beyond Greatness' Criteria At this fragile time in the world, there are many who are moved to make a difference. However, there are certain special souls who are called to go beyond making a difference and who surrender their lives to humanity, touching all of those they meet. We are undertaking a search to try to understand the quality of character that defines these 'world servers,' people like Indian political and spiritual leader Mahatma Gandhi, and Mother Teresa, who won the Nobel Peace Prize in for her work with the poorest of the poor in India.
What is it that causes them to live the inspiring lives that they do?

We believe these people can be found on all continents, on all religious paths, and in different generations. However, regardless of the differences, we believe they share certain qualities. We are seeking to find and interview people who appear to have the following qualities or characteristics:. What is most interesting about those who have this ineffable quality we are referring to as 'beyond greatness' is that while each has done important and transformative work in his or her life, it is the quality of their being that seems to do the most service.
People describe being transformed simply by being in the presence of those who have this character of 'beyond greatness. Next, we gathered a group of thinking partners, friends on all continents, who had greatness in them and who certainly knew people who they would consider great. We sent them this list of criteria, requesting they send names of people who would meet these criteria. We found someone who would help us with the sorting and vetting of the volume of names we anticipated, and then we waited.
Finally, we heard from a couple of the thinking partners. One wrote from Australia to say, 'I have given a lot of thought to your request and to these criteria, and I just don't know anybody like this. If you find somebody, though, let me know. I would love to meet them. We called Tex and requested a meeting in New York. A few weeks later we were sitting together in the Meditation Center and Gallery of the Brahma Kumaris on Fifth Avenue, laying out the dilemma. We explained that there was virtually total unanimity on the names of certain historic figures, such as Mother Teresa, Mahatma Gandhi, and Martin Luther King Jr.
We were feeling discouraged. Tex listened closely and then pronounced the situation to be promising. What, we wondered, about this stalled project was he finding promising? Greatness must be intrinsic in each one. We just have to discover more about this. It was more about the quality of what we found.

Greatness Has Many Faces In their worldwide search for extraordinary figures who fit the criteria for 'something beyond greatness,' authors Judy Rogers and Gayatri Naraine humbly discovered that the quality of greatness is not the exclusive province of those recognized publicly for their deeds.
Something Beyond Greatness is a thought-provoking discussion of the humble, loving service to others that is at the heart of greatness. For insight into the two sides of the coin, Rogers and Naraine turned to a woman of God and a man of science--Dadi Janki and Humberto Maturana, both world-renowned in their respective practices. Through their discussions with Janki, Maturana, and many others, you'll come to realize, as have the authors, that the two sides of the coin make one whole. Read more Read less.

This book is the gentlest of guides pointing to the existence of something beyond greatness within each one of us. Perhaps its greatest strength is that by the end of the book we actually believe in and hope for our own greatness, and are inspired to awaken that greatness so that it is present in our lives. This book will not tell you how to dress for greatness.

What it will do is set you on the path. By the end of this book, it's a path you're going to want to be on. I was moved to contemplate and hopefully act in some small way to love. The book is an easy read and elegant simplicity. This Book is an Eye opening experience reading it, every person that was interviewed who did great actions and continue to do it up to this day never admitted themselves to be great people in society but instead mentioned Ghandi, Mandela, Mother Teresa as great and so on.
It is incredible to read about the greatness that was uncovered. Dadi Janki spoke about love and how it is our natural original quality and the reason for greatness is because we act on love, pure love for one another. I enjoyed reading this book and plan on doing so again really soon. Thank you to the amazing authors, Gayatri Narine and Judy Rodgers.
Their inspiration for this book was an Indian spiritual leader named Dadi Janki. They began searching for people who dedicated thier lives to serving others. The authors then go on to speak with Humberto Maturana, who is a professor of Biology in the University of Chile in Santiago and an author, as well as Dadi Janki. I found this book to be interesting and insightful. It was a quick read and I finished it in one sitting. Several passages stood out.
