Timeless Wisdom by Eknath Easwaran
Book DescriptionThese are passages that inform and transform: enjoy their poetry, study their wisdom, or use them for Easwaran's "Passage Meditation"."Timeless Wisdom", the companion volume to Easwaran's "Passage Meditation", is a rich collection of spiritual texts from all the world's great traditions, selected by Easwaran for study and for his method of meditation.Here are flashes of insight from the Hindu Upanishads; prayers of comfort from the Christian saints; psalms from the Old Testament; songs of praise from the Sufis; and, deep wisdom from the Buddhist and Taoist traditions. Some of these passages, such as the Prayer of St. Francis, the Buddha's "Twin Verses", and the Twenty-third Psalm, are familiar and well loved, others may be fresh discoveries - all are beautiful. Short texts, easy to read and memorize, are interspersed with longer ones, which the reader can study in depth."
