Sometimes illumination occurs spontaneously or, as Ram Dass experienced, in a cosmic moment of the heart opening. More commonly, it happens when we remove the dust from the mirror of our spiritual heart with daily practice - to see beyond the illusion of our transient thoughts and emotions to the vast and luminous landscape of our true nature.
For five decades, Ram Dass has explored the depths of consciousness and love, and brought back insights as his service to others. With Polishing the Mirror, he gathers together his essential teachings for being and loving, here and now, in the eternal present. For those just starting on the path, this is a primer for living from the spiritual heart. For those already practicing it, is a reference point for daily life in the spirit.
In this audiobook, read by co-author Rameshwar Das, listeners will discover perennial wisdom, humor, teaching stories, and guidance into Ram Dass’s own spiritual practices, including:
Bhakti Yoga - devotion, opening our hearts to unconditional love
Practices for living, aging, dying, and embracing the natural flow of life
Karma Yoga - transformation through selfless service
Working with fear and suffering as a path to grace and freedom
Step-by-step guidance in devotional chant, meditation, mantra, and more
Polishing the Mirror is Ram Dass’s invitation to experience who we are and why we are here, and how to become beacons of unconditional love.
This unabridged audiobook includes four bonus tracks:

Absolute gem of a book, extremely glad to have this in my life. I’ve been through it almost a dozen times. My journey is that much smoother thanks the work of Ram Dass.
