                  Simple Lessons You Can Use from a Buddhist Monk

                  Why are we here? What is goodness? Is there any value in goodness that an ordinary person – the sort who can be lured into foolish behavior – can make use of in this world? Is there a God and if so, can I depend upon Him or Her?

                  These are the questions that plague the wakeful moments of a common man. A penetrating mind won’t find satisfaction in looking at these questions conventionally. These questions have to be seen from the bottom up, so to speak.

                  In Questions from the City, Answers from the Forest, Buddhist monk and author Ajahn Sumano Bhikkhu explores the human mind and the causes behind humankind’s suffering. Written on a well-travelled, battery-powered laptop in a meditation cave in Thailand, this distillation of Buddhist wisdom answers the questions of “city” people who sought out the Buddhist in his forest retreat to obtain his answers to life’s most basic questions.

                                  From the bestselling author of Classic Tales from Mystic India, The Singing Guru and Rumi: Tales to Live By, comes the second book in the Sikh saga series about Bhai Lehna’s journey from being Guru Nanak’s constant disciple to becoming Guru Angad (1504 – 1552), his successor and the second Sikh Guru.

                                  Into the Great Heart carries forward and concludes the stories of Guru Nanak and Bhai Mardana, his favourite minstrel, from the first volume of the Sikh saga, The Singing Guru. History, legend and fiction merge to populate this book with fascinating personalities from Sikh history. Pivotal to this narrative are forgotten female luminaries such as Guru Nanak’s wife, Mata Sulakhni, his sister, Bebe Nanaki, Bhai Lehna’s wife, Khivi and daughter Amro. Brought to the foreground, their wisdom and insights as they overcome obstacles to spiritual growth embody the basic tenets of Sikhism in everyday living. They enhance Guru Nanak and Bhai Lehna’s tale with their diverse approach to life.

                                  Filled with captivating characters that enrich the tapestry of this compelling narrative, Into the Great Heart is a must-read for anyone who loves a rich story about human nature in its search for spiritual awareness.

                                                  From the best-selling author of Ganesha Goes to Lunch and Rumi’s Tales from the Silk Road comes an original novel about the life and travels of Guru Nanak, a musician, enlightened thinker, and one of the most beloved figures in eastern spirituality.

                                                  In this fascinating book, Kamla K. Kapur weaves together facts, legends, folktales, myths, and over forty of Guru Nanak’s poems—preserved in the Sikh holy book, the Granth Sahib—to form this captivating depiction of the leader’s life. From being seduced by deadly women to almost getting eaten by cannibals, the exciting account presented in The Singing Guru includes moral tales without being proselytizing. Factual details are intermingled with fantasy to produce a symbolic portrait in which humor and imagination combine to convey a profound and entertaining spiritual narrative.

                                                                  Stories of Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva, Ganesha and Krishna and from the Ramayana and Mahabharata King Kubera was the greediest man in the world. Hated and feared by many, he schemed to win the love of the beautiful goddess Parvati but learned an important lesson when he invited her elephant-headed son Ganesha to lunch one day. Thus Goes One of the Many Delightful Tales in this decidedly grown-up book of traditional Indian stories, retold for the modern reader. Author Kamla K. Kapur's connection to these ago-old stories is the reverent yet individualistic kind we might expect from someone whose introduction is of her hometown, where naked, dreadlocked holy men speed about on motorbikes. To collect these stories, Kapur relied on ancient sacred texts, modern scholarship and chance encounters with interesting people who just happened to know a really good one about the time that Vishnu sank into the ocean, was incarnated as a pig and had a really wonderful time. Like myths around the world, these are teaching stories that offer both a window into a fascinating culture that has existed for thousands of years and a code for living that can be applied to the modern world. Whether you read these engaging tales for the monkey gods, talking toads and beautiful maidens in distress or for an eastern viewpoint on the eternal questions surrounding love, friendship, faith, happiness and war, this is a book that bears repeated reading and is a fine addition to any collection.

How do you serve the world selflessly, yet passionately celebrate your life? The sages of Tantra have known for centuries that when you follow the path of Shakti — the sacred feminine principle personified by the goddesses of yoga — these gifts can manifest spontaneously. Yet most of us, women as well as men, have yet to experience the full potential of our inner feminine energies. In Awakening Shakti, you will learn how to recognize and invite: • Kali, bringer of strength, fierce love, and untamed freedom • Lakshmi, who confers prosperity and beauty • Saraswati, for clarity of communication and intuition • Radha, who carries the divine energy of spiritual longing • Bhuvaneshvari, who creates the space for sacred transformation • Parvati, to awaken creativity and the capacity to love With a wealth of meditations, visualizations, mantras, teachings, and beautifully told stories, Awakening Shakti provides a practical guide for activating the currents of the divine feminine in every aspect of your life.

When Mahatma Gandhi roused millions in a peaceful revolution against colonial rule, Khan Abdul Ghaffar Khan seemed an unlikely man to enlist. Yet from the ruthless Pathan tradition in Indian's rugged North-West Frontier Province, Khan raised history's first nonviolent "army" of 100,00 men. Many cautioned Gandhi against involving in his nonviolent struggle these people with such a record of brutality. But under Khan's leadership the Pathans proved that it is often those who are capable of great violence who have the courage to stand unarmed against injustice.

Gandhi's face is instantly recognizable. But who was he? How did this young lawyer transform into the 'great soul' who led 400 million Indians in their nonviolent struggle for independence? Easwaran, who grew up in Gandhi's India, offers answers which are important both historically and personally. He gives a moving account of the turning points and choices in Gandhi's life that made him not just a great political leader but also a timeless icon of nonviolence. Gandhi's inner transformation, the essence of this biography, contains an urgent message for us today. Non-violence, Easwaran explains, is a practical method for resolving problems, healing relationships and raising the quality of our lives. It is a skill that is essential for the evolution and perhaps even the survival, of our civilization.

Meditation is a systematic technique for training the mind, especially attention and the will, so that we can set forth from the surface level of consciousness and journey into the very depths. With meditation you train your attention, drawing together the scattered threads of what you think, say and do. The Principle of Meditation is simple: You are what you think. By meditating regularly, you find yourself becoming wiser, kinder, with greater sense of purpose and connection to others. This book is a complete guide to a program of meditation developed by Eknath Easwaran. Universal and dogma-free, meditation fits within any religious practice or nonreligious philosophy, it is used by counselors and yoga teachers, as well as health and education professionals. Eknath Easwaran taught meditation to thousands of people for over 40 years, including a course at the University of California. Thoroughly tested, consistent and clear, the instructions in this book are all you need to start meditating. With Easwaran's help, choose words or passages that appeal to you, from one spiritual tradition or many, poetic or intellectual, lofty and inspiring or warmly practical. Keep meditating and your words or passages will become lifelines, taking you to the source of wisdom deep within and then guiding you through the challenges of daily life.

Feeling trapped by unwanted thoughts and emotions can seem an inevitable part of life. But Easwaran, who taught meditation for nearly forty years, shows a way to break free. Just as a fitness routine can create a strong, supple body, spiritual disciplines can shape a secure personality and a resilient, loving mind. Writing as an experienced, friendly coach, Easwaran explains how we can train the mind not just during meditation but throughout the day. Working with difficult colleagues, choosing what to eat and listening to a child's needs are all opportunities to try out different, wiser responses. To shed light on the thinking process, Easwaran takes the timeless teachings of the Buddha and other mystics and illustrates them with scenes from contemporary life. He offers practical exercises for taking charge of our thoughts, along with instruction in his own method of passage meditation. Easwaran shows how training the mind is a glorious challenge - one that brings joy and purpose to life.

Easwaran's translation of this classic Buddhist text is based on the oldest, best-known version in Pali.

Said to be the text closest to the Buddha actual words, it is a collection of short teachings memorized during his lifetime by his disciples. Easwaran presents the Dhammapada as a guide to spiritual perseverance, progress and ultimately enlightenment – a heroic confrontation with life as it really is, with straight answers to our deepest questions. We witness the heartbreak of death, for instance – what does that mean for us? What is love? How does karma work? How do we follow the spiritual life in the midst of work and family? Does Nirvana really exist and if so, what is it like to be illumined? In his interpretation of Buddhist themes, illustrated with stories from the Buddha life, Easwaran offers a view of the concept of right understanding that is both exhilarating and instructive. He shares his experiences on the spiritual path, giving the advice that only an experienced teacher and practitioner can offer and urges us to answer for ourselves the Buddha call to Nirvana – that mysterious, enduring state of wisdom, joy and peace. Eknath Easwaran was Professor of English literature at the University of Nagpur, India and an established writer, when he came to the United States on the fulbright exchange program in 1959. As founder and director of the Blue mountain center of meditation and the Nilgiris press, he taught the classics of world mysticism and the practice of meditation from 1960 till his death in 1999.

Thousands of years ago, Indian sages found the answers for some of the eternal questions of human mind, which they have passed on to the future generations through the books of Upanishads. Upanishads are guides for human beings and are said to have answers to all the questions that people have pertaining to the realization of one's own self. These books still have relevance to the modern world.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  The author in this book has extracted some of the important concepts from the Upanishads and has made an attempt to introduce the readers to some spiritual aspects such as consciousness, self, death, knowledge, wisdom and joy in a detailed manner. The author's explanation of the concepts in his own language of wisdom and the way he connects the texts to the world of today's advanced science and technology make the book a lucid, relevant read. Though the original text of Upanishads are voluminous with complicated language, the author has tried to condense and simplify the major teachings of the book and has presented them in a readable manner.

What is the greatest mystery in life? That although we see people die every day, we never believe we will die. The "Theater of Death" confronts us everywhere, in the newspaper, by the roadside, with the loss of a family member and most personally as we face our own aging and yet, how many of us see through life's passing show to learn what death can teach us about how to live?

There is so little time, not a day to waste on quarreling with those we love, no time for anything that robs our lives of joy, hope and meaning. Dialogue with Death is not a book on death and dying. It is a book about life and living: what life is for, who we are as human beings, why we are here. Yet it is death that forces these questions on us. If we could live forever, there would be little urgency in finding answers. But the fact is that whatever our age or the status of our health, none of us has time to waste in learning what life is for. We begin to take life seriously when we take death seriously. Otherwise, as Thoreau said, we run the risk of discovering, when we come to die, that we have never lived. This is not a negative observation. It is completely positive, for it brings life into focus. Fulfilling the purpose of life becomes our overriding priority and that brings joy, hope, love and meaning to us and to those around us. Let this book be your guide.

The Gita (in Sanskrit, "Song of the Lord") consists of a dialogue between Lord Krishna and Prince Arjuna on the morning of a climactic battle. Krishna provides Arjuna with the spiritual means to understand his own nature so that he can take action and prevail. However, the larger canvas painted in the poem is that of the moral universe of Hinduism. As translator Eknath Easwaran, one of the world's premier teachers of meditation and spirituality, notes "The Gita does not present a system of philosophy. It offers something to every seeker after God, of whatever temperament, by whatever path. The reason for this universal appeal is that it is basically practical: it is a handbook for self-realization and a guide to action."

The Bhagavad Gita is India's best-known scripture -a dialogue between a warrior-prince named Arjuna and his charioteer and spiritual guide, Sri Krishna. For Easwaran, a foremost translator of the Gita, who taught classes on it for over 40 years, the Gita's epic battle represents the war in our own hearts and Arjuna's anguish reflects the human condition: torn between opposing forces, confused about how to live. Sri Krishna's timeless guidance, Easwaran argues, can shed light on our dilemmas today. Placing the Gita's teachings in a modern context, Easwaran explores the nature of reality, the illusion of separateness, the search for identity, the meaning of yoga and how to heal the unconscious. This book is his distillation of the Gita's teachings from the end of his life, based on talks given to his close students and published here for the first time. Easwaran shows how, through the principles of yoga and the practice of meditation, the Gita can point a way forward for us, both as individuals and in society today.

His names evoke the qualities that elevate our lives: forgiveness, beauty, tenderness, compassion and love.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  Every religion in the world worships their God with a different name. Words like ‘Holy, Merciful, Compassionate, Truth and the One’ appear in all these religions, emphasizing that however we worship, the Lord is one and the same.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  In India, one of the most popular litanies is the thousand names of Vishnu. He is worshipped by millions in his incarnations as Rama and Krishna. Eknath Easwaran comments on a fraction of these names and what each one means in our daily lives. This is a book for daily inspiration, full of personal reminders of what it means to see God in the faces and events of everyday life.

These are powerful, universal wisdom texts that inform and transform. Enjoy them for their poetic and intellectual appeal Or study them slowly, with concentration Or meditate on them, so that the words come to life in your thoughts and actions. The great saints and sages are the world's spiritual geniuses -men and women such as the Compassionate Buddha, Francis of Assisi, Teresa of Avila and the sages of the Upanishads. They come from different faiths, different times, but they all discovered the same changeless reality underlying the shifting world of sense experience. 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. Easwaran chose texts that are positive, practical and inspiring, that express the universal ideals of love, steadfastness and wisdom. They can be read as holy words but also as the promptings of our true self, the core of goodness within us. Read this book again and again and let these saints and sages take you to the heart land of the spirit within.
