Easwaran takes the timeless teachings of the Buddha and other mystics and tells us how we can train the mind not just during meditation but throughout the day.
Feeling trapped by unwanted thoughts and emotions can seem an inevitable part of life. But Easwaran, who taught meditation for 40 years, teaches us a way to break free.
Just as a fitness routine can create a strong, supple body, spiritual disciplines can shape a secure personality and a resilient, loving mind. Writing as an experienced, friendly coach, Easwaran takes the timeless teachings of the Buddha and other mystics and tells how we can train the mind not just during meditation but throughout the day.
Working with difficult colleagues, choosing what to eat, and listening to a child’s needs are all opportunities to try out different, wiser responses. Easwaran describes how training the mind is a glorious challenge - one that brings joy and purpose to life.
