An Anthology of the World's Sacred Poetry and Prose (Third Edition, Revised Edition)
This latest edition of Easwaran's classic anthology, with a beautiful new cover, contains his selection of life-affirming, lyrical writings from the sacred literature of the world. It includes passages from the Christian, Jewish, Hindu, Buddhist, Sufi, and Native American traditions.
These passages can be read for daily inspiration, for their insights into other spiritual traditions, for the light they throw on how to live, for the sustenance they offer when we feel sad or tired, and above all for the deep transformation they can bring in Easwaran's method of passage meditation (see also Passage Meditation: Bringing the Deep Wisdom of the Heart into Daily Life).
For anyone seeking to establish or sustain a regular meditation practice, this is a deeply inspiring collection of spiritual texts that will keep your practice fresh and nourishing.
"I have read these passages countless times, yet I have never tired of them. With every encounter I find deeper meaning. May you, too, find in them a river of inspiration without end." - Eknath Easwaran
"This book is incandescent with insight and inspiration. It reveals a common wisdom uniting the great spiritual traditions of the world, which is a much-needed realization in our troubled times. - Larry Dossey, MD, author of Healing Beyond the Body
Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love; Where there is injury, pardon; Where there is doubt, faith; Where there is despair, hope; Where there is darkness, light; Where there is sadness, joy. - Saint Francis of Assisi
"Slow, sustained concentration on these passages," says Easwaran, "drives them deep into our minds. And whatever we drive deep into consciousness, that we become."
