Your Life is Your Message: Finding Harmony with Yourself, Others and the Earth

Eknath Easwaran, Author Hyperion Books $14.95 (0p) ISBN 978-0-7868-6220-7
The founder of the Blue Mountain Center of Meditation in San Francisco, Eswaran is one the most powerful Hindu teachers lecturing and writing in America. This book, his 25th, is a collection of 85 short readings from his lectures and other books. Not intended as a traditional linear argument or lecture, this book is meant to be a companion for the difficult but joyous interior work of spiritual transformation that is at the heart of his teachings. While the book takes its title from a message Gandhi is reported to have written to a nagging reporter, each of the short selections gathered here springs from Eswaran's everyday encounters with his teacher, his family or his students. Through the anecdotal quality of these meditations, the author demonstrates that spiritual wisdom has no value at all if it does not shape and transform your every encounter with the world and its inhabitants.
