Eknath Easwaran (1910-1999) is respected around the world as an authentic teacher of timeless wisdom.

Born in a small village in Kerala state, India, Easwaran grew up listening to his grandmother's age-old stories, and learned from her wise, loving example as she guided and supported her busy extended family. As a young man, Easwaran visited Gandhi in his ashram and was deeply influenced by the way he brought spiritual values into daily life.

Easwaran came to the United States on the Fulbright exchange program in 1959. In 1961 he founded the Blue Mountain Center of Meditation, which carries on his work today through publications and retreats. More than 1.5 million copies of his books are in print.
