A Walk with Four Spiritual Guides contains selections from four classic texts: Bhagavad Gita (Krishna) • Dhammapada (Buddha) • The Gospel of Thomas (Jesus) • Selections from the Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna (Ramakrishna)

The selections focus on the inspiring themes of devotion and selfless action; serenity and the mind; mysticism and the individual's search for answers; and the direct path to the Divine.
