Description

Revised second edition (July 2017) has a new cover, minor corrections, and a comfortable new size and updated interior layout. Is it possible for ordinary people like ourselves to be kind, patient, and loving - always? Easwaran comments on short texts from Saint Paul, Mother Teresa, Saint Augustine, and Saint Francis to show how we can apply the teachings of these great mystics to daily living, and chapter introductions provide insights into their lives. Easwaran explains how the practice of meditation can help us find the strength and compassion we need at any time, even when we are tired, frustrated, or filled with doubt. Eknath Easwaran taught meditation for over forty years, drawing from all the world's traditions in his spiritual teaching.show more

Back cover copy

This book shows how we can stretch our capacity to love - stretch it beyond anything we can imagine. To love more, we need the desire to love more. We need to slow down - not to do less, but to relax the frantic pace of thinking that leaves so little room for what is worthwhile. We need ways to reorder our priorities. We need time - time for others. And we need some way of renewing ourselves, day in and day out. Eknath Easwaran describes specific methods of meditation and prayer which we can use to tap our inner strength at any time, even when we are frustrated, angry, or sapped by doubt. Introductions to each section give glimpses into the lives and teachings of these saints.show more
