Easwaran is one of the twentieth century's great spiritual teachers and an authentic guide to timeless wisdom. His books on meditation, spiritual living, and the classics of world mysticism have been translated into twenty-six languages.
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. Chapter introductions provide insights into these mystics' 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.
Revised second edition (July 2017) has a new cover, minor corrections, and a comfortable new size and updated interior layout.
