What if we could release new energy, recast old ways of think, become more sensitive to the needs of others?
We can change, and this book shows how. Every moment becomes an opportunity for growth as Eknath Easwaran takes the mystery out of the mantram and describes how we can gain the will and the insight to refashion our lives in a higher image, through powerful, time-honored methods that can help you to:
Break harmful addictions
Thrive under stress
Repair personal relationships
Heal inner conflicts
Discover the spiritual basis of life
This clearly written little book is very pleasing. It gives precise, clear information about the power, uses, and variety of mantrams. Easwaran’s book is to be recommended in the highest terms.
How mantrams work, how to choose one, and how to use it – along with other ways of working on yourself. Spiritual, nonsectarian, quietly delightful.
