Description

How to be a trustee of the earth and of yourself. Easwaran is one of the twentieth century's great spiritual teachers and an authentic guide to timeless wisdom. In this book he describes his search for a way of life that combines inner fulfillment, respect for nature, and effective participation in the world. Then he presents the fruit of that search: a comprehensive program of trusteeship of ourselves and the earth. This is environmentalism as a great adventure, filled with the challenges and rewards of inner growth. "As trustees," he writes, "we discover that each of us is a unique and essential member of a compassionate universe."show more
