Overview

The mantram, or mantra, is a short, powerful, spiritual formula from the world’s great traditions, repeated silently in the mind, anytime, anywhere. Examples of mantrams are Rama, Rama, used by Gandhi, or My God and My All, repeated by St. Francis of Assisi, or Om Mane Padme Hum. Easwaran taught the use of the mantram for over forty years as part of his passage meditation program. He explains how the mantram works, and gives practical guidelines for using it to focus our thoughts and access deeper resources of strength, patience, and love. The mantram can help us replenish our energy, release creativity, and heal old conflicts. These resonant phrases work equally well for parents with young children, colleagues at work, couples in a relationship, in illness or depression, and even at the time of death. And Easwaran shows how repetition of the mantram can open the door to a life that is increasingly meaningful and fulfilling.

Meet the Author

Eknath Easwaran (1910–1999) is respected around the world as the originator of passage meditation and an authentic guide to timeless wisdom. His method is a dogma-free approach which brings universal ideals into daily life. His bestselling book Passage Meditation has sold 195,000 copies since 1978. His 26 books on spiritual living have been translated into 26 languages, and his editions of the Indian Classics have regularly been bestsellers.

Easwaran was a professor of English literature and well known in India as a writer and speaker before coming to the United States in 1959 on the Fulbright exchange program. In 1961 he founded the Blue Mountain Center of Meditation, which carries on his work today through publications and retreats.

Although he is known primarily through his books, Easwaran has also personally touched the lives of thousands of people who have heard him speak. In 1960 he began giving regular classes on meditation in the San Francisco Bay Area. By the early 1990s, as his books gained increasing attention from foreign publishers, his meditation retreats were drawing people from around the world.

Easwaran lived what he taught, giving him enduring appeal as a teacher and author of deep insight and warmth.
