    DescriptionA highly regarded meditation teacher addresses the root causes of stress, and offers practical, tried and tested techniques for calming the mind. Stress and anxiety affect many of us as we struggle with work pressures, money worries, strained relationships, and the nagging sense that life may be running out of our control. But in the midst of chaos we can find balance, peace, and even wisdom, Easwaran says, if we learn to steady our minds. It's a simple idea, but one that runs deep - a truly calm mind can weather any storm. And we learn to calm the mind through practice - there's no magic about it. We all have immense untapped inner resources. We can't control what life throws at us, but we can learn to access the courage, patience, and compassion that we need to ride the waves of life minute-by-minute, day-by-day. A highly respected teacher of meditation, Eknath Easwaran offers a wealth of insights, exercises and practical suggestions to help us try something more successful next time we're facing our stressors. He explains how to choose and use a mantram (or mantra) to quiet the mind in any situation. He describes how to slow down and stay in the present, to improve creativity and concentration and shed unwanted anxieties and resentments. He shows us how we can strengthen our relationships, and stay kind when faced with others' anger, or our own. And he explains how, by learning to calm the mind, we do much more than simply help ourselves. "To the extent we can quiet our minds and light the lamp of wisdom within," he writes, "we can add a little light to the world around us instead of feeling helpless in the dark." Each of the six chapters includes an introduction by Christine Easwaran (wife of Eknath Easwaran) placing Easwaran's wisdom in a contemporary context, an essay by Easwaran, real-life stories showing how people are benefiting from Easwaran's teachings today, and a section with key ideas, points to practice, and further inspiration.
