Overview

Words to Live By: Short Readings of Daily Wisdom by Eknath Easwaran

These short readings, one for each day of the year, offer deep inspiration for readers who want to develop a more spiritually grounded lifestyle.

In the midst of our busy world we need islands of calm. Each day, Easwaran comments on a quotation from one of the world’s great philosophers, poets, saints, and sages. He explains how the wisdom of the ages can guide us in our own lives.

Augustine and Einstein, Emily Dickinson and Jalaladdin Rumi, Biblical verses, Buddhist sutras, Hasidic proverbs, and Hindu Upanishads can all be found here. As we go through the year with Easwaran some days will be joyful, some will be hard, but each one can further our journey. One day at a time is enough.
