Beschreibung

Timeless Wisdom is a collection of universal texts for study, meditation, and inspiration, selected by Eknath Easwaran, the originator of passage meditation.

An authority on world mysticism, and outstanding translator of the Indian classics, Easwaran chose texts that are positive, practical, and inspiring, which express the universal ideals of love, patience, inner strength, and wisdom. Here are flashes of insight from the Hindu Upanishads, prayers of comfort from the Christian saints, the passionate songs of the Sufis, and deep wisdom from the Jewish, Buddhist, and Taoist traditions.

By reminding us of our essential goodness, they give us hope. Through the legacy of their words, they show us what it means to think in freedom, love fully, and see life as it really is.

This portable, compact anthology includes 95 passages from Easwaran's popular God Makes the Rivers to Flow plus nine new ones.

Eknath Easwaran (1910-1999) is respected around the world as the originator of passage meditation and an authentic guide to universal wisdom. His dogma-free method of meditation consists of silent repetition in the mind of memorized inspirational passages from the world's great religions, and his book Meditation has sold 195,000 copies since 1978.

Easwaran's translations of the Indian spiritual classics have been widely acclaimed and are all bestsellers in their class. His 26 books include commentaries on the saints and sages from all the great spiritual traditions, and have been translated into 26 languages.

Easwaran was a professor of English literature and well known in India as a writer and speaker before coming to the United States in 1959 on the Fulbright exchange program. In 1961 he founded the Blue Mountain Center of Meditation, which carries on his work today through publications and retreats.

Although he is known primarily through his books, Easwaran has also personally touched the lives of thousands of people who have heard him speak. In 1960 he began giving regular classes on meditation in the San Francisco Bay Area. By the early 1990s, as his books gained increasing attention from foreign publishers, his meditation retreats were drawing people from around the world.

Easwaran lived what he taught, giving him enduring appeal as a teacher and author of deep insight and warmth.
