As I mentioned in the other Notes on his work, Eknath Easwaran is one of my favorite teachers.
Easwaran was a professor of English literature in India before coming to America on a Fulbright scholarship. He taught at UC Berkeley and became one of the world’s leading meditation and spiritual teachers.
In addition to the Notes we created on his translations of the Bhagavad Gita and the Dhammapada (if you’re looking for translations of those classics, I highly (!) recommend his), we also have Notes on Conquest of Mind, Take Your Time, Passage Meditation, and Your Life Is Your Message.
In this book, we learn how to love storms—how to use simple tools to find strength in the inevitable storms of life as we “transform stress, live in balance and find peace of mind.”
It’s a great, practical, quick-reading book that Easwaran’s wife, Christine, put together after he passed away. (Get a copy here.)
It’s packed with Big Ideas and I’m excited to share a few of my favorites so let’s jump straight in!
