In this book Easwaran has written Meditation: An eight-Point Program, the Bhagvad Gita for Daily Living, Gandhi the Man, the Supreme Ambition, Dialogue with Death, and a Man to Match His Mountains.

He has translated three of India's best-loved scriptures with full introductions for the general reader- The Bhagvad Gita, the Dhammapada, and the Upanishads - and has complied an anthology from the world's great scriptures and mystics, God Makes the River to Flow. Articles based on his weekly public talks appear in The Little Lamp, the quarterly of the Blue Mountain Center of Meditation.

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
Overcome depression
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.
