Publisher's Summary

In this historic recording Eknath Easwaran, who taught meditation and spiritual living for over 40 years, reads his selection of life-affirming writings from the saints, sages, and scriptures of the Christian, Hindu, Sufi, Jewish, Buddhist, and Taoist traditions. This collection includes passages from Easwaran’s translations of the Bhagavad Gita, the Upanishads, and the Dhammapada. Easwaran’s reading is sonorous and deep, slowing down the mind and drawing us into a world of timeless wisdom where our worries and concerns fall back into perspective.
Listen to these passages for daily inspiration, for the insights they give into other spiritual traditions, for the light they throw on how to live, and for the deep transformation they can bring through Easwaran’s method of passage meditation. Uplifting and lyrical, sometimes startlingly practical, these inspirational passages all express the same unifying truth – that we are spiritual beings, with limitless resources of love, energy, and wisdom, intended to make our contribution to our communities and our world.

very inspiring and thought provoking.

to hear so much wisdom in one place was uplifting. I liked the narration although it took me a bit to get used to the author"s accent. however, he made up for being a bit difficult to understand are times by his deep familiarity with the passages and their meaning.
