Essence of the Dhammapada
Eknath Easwaran
J-2359  
Rs.350  
296p  
ISBN 978-81-8495-625-2  
The Buddha’s call to Nirvana

Eknath Easwaran, translator of the best-selling edition of the Dhammapada, sees this powerful scripture as a perfect map for the spiritual journey. Said to be the text closest to the Buddha’s actual words, it is a collection of short teachings memorized during his lifetime by his disciples. Easwaran presents the Dhammapada as a guide to spiritual perseverance, progress, and ultimately enlightenment – a heroic confrontation with life as it really is, with straight answers to our deepest questions. We witness the heartbreak of death, for instance – what does that mean for us? What is love? How does karma work? How do we follow the spiritual life in the midst of work and family? Does nirvana really exist, and if so, what is it like to be illumined?

In his interpretation of Buddhist themes, illustrated with stories from the Buddha’s life, Easwaran offers a view of the concept of Right Understanding that is both exhilarating and instructive. He shares his experiences on the spiritual path, giving the advice that only an experienced teacher and practitioner can offer, and urges us to answer for ourselves the Buddha’s call to nirvana – that mysterious, enduring state of wisdom, joy, and peace.

EXPLORING THE UNDISCOVERED COUNTRY

UNDERSTANDING LIFE’S LAST GREAT CHANGE
What is the greatest mystery in life?
That although we see people die every day,
we never believe we will die.


The “theater of death” confronts us everywhere: in the newspaper, by the roadside, with the loss of a family member – and most personally as we face our own aging.

And yet, how many of us see through life’s passing show to learn what death can teach us about how to live?

In this engaging book, Eknath Easwaran shows how we can learn from death – and what we can do now to fully understand life’s last great change.

Vishnu and His 1000 Names
Eknath Easwaran
J-2694  
Rs.350  
328p  
ISBN 978-93-86348-87-6  
The thousand names of Vishnu reiterate a single message: the Lord is everything, everywhere. His names evoke the qualities that elevate our lives: forgiveness, beauty, tenderness, compassion and love.

Every religion in the world worships their God with a different name. Words like ‘Holy, Merciful, Compassionate, Truth, and the One’ appear in all these religions, emphasizing that however we worship, the Lord is one and the same.

In India, one of the most popular litanies is the thousand names of Vishnu. He is worshipped by millions in his incarnations as Rama and Krishna. Eknath Easwaran comments on a fraction of these names and what each one means in our daily lives. This is a book for daily inspiration, full of personal reminders of what it means to see God in the faces and events of everyday life.

Eknath Easwaran is respected around the world as one of the great spiritual teachers. He was a professor of English Literature at the University of Nagpur and an established writer. He was Founder and Director of the Blue Mountain Center of Meditation and the Nilgiri Press, and taught the classics of world mysticism and the practice of meditation from 1960 till his death in 1999.

The Upanishads
Eknath Easwaran
J-2009  
Rs.350  
384p  
ISBN 978-81-8495-091-5  
In the ancient wisdom texts called the Upanishads, illumined sages share flashes of insight, the results of their investigation into consciousness itself. In extraordinary visions, they experience directly a transcendent Reality which is the essence, or Self, of each created being. They teach that each of us, each Self, is eternal, deathless, one with the power that created the universe.

Easwaran’s translation is reliable and readable, consistently the bestseller in its field. It includes an overview of the cultural and historical setting, with chapter introductions, notes, and a Sanskrit glossary. But it is Easwaran’s understanding of the wisdom of the Upanishads, and their relevance to the modern reader, that makes this edition truly outstanding.

Each sage, each Upanishad, appeals in different ways to the reader’s head and heart. In the end, Easwaran writes, “The Upanishads belong not just to Hinduism. They are India’s precious legacy to humanity, and in that spirit they are offered here.”

Essence of the Bhagavad Gita
Eknath Easwaran
J-2172  
Rs.299  
296p  
ISBN 978-81-8495-341-1  
A Contemporary Guide to Yoga,
Meditation and Indian Philosophy


The Bhagavad Gita is India’s best-known scripture – a dialogue between a warrior-prince named Arjuna and his charioteer and spiritual guide, Sri Krishna.

For Easwaran, a foremost translator of the Gita, who taught classes on it for over 40 years, the Gita’s epic battle represents the war in our own hearts and Arjuna’s anguish reflects the human condition: torn between opposing forces, confused about how to live. Sri Krishna’s timeless guidance, Easwaran argues, can shed light on our dilemmas today.

Placing the Gita’s teachings in a modern context, Easwaran explores the nature of reality, the illusion of separateness, the search for identity, the meaning of yoga, and how to heal the unconscious. This book is his distillation of the Gita’s teachings from the end of his life, based on talks given to his close students and published here for the first time. Easwaran shows how, through the principles of yoga and the practice of meditation, the Gita can point a way forward for us, both as individuals and in society today.
