This audiobook contains a collection of spiritual tales designed to calm your mind and help you experience the Power of Now. These selected stories prove that the basic teachings of ancient Hinduism share the same elementary truths than those presently taught by Eckhart Tolle, as evidenced by the writings of Swami Sivananda, Sri Ramakrishna, Swami Vivekananda, Ramana Maharshi, and other renowned Hindu masters. As you will see, both teachings are based on the notions of the illusory world, the ego, the ´´mental chatter´´, the self, inner peace, and enlightenment, as well as the importance of meditation and learning to live in the now.

This audiobook contains an easily accessible overview of the Hindu religion, with a focus on those coming from the Western religions and cultures. While quite a few of us in the west are familiar with at least some aspects of the religion (karma, for instance), most of us lack any real depth of understanding of the complexities and nuances of one of the world´s oldest and most diverse religions. I hope that by listening to this book you can at least begin to scratch the surface of this rich and intricate religion. We will cover the basics of the belief system, including the concepts of karma, reincarnation, ahimsa, and the one Supreme Being. These concepts unite all the various sects of the Hindu religion, as well as all of the regional and familial variations in what is a rich and complex religion. The pantheon of the gods is described, with an emphasis on each god´s function. The rich symbolism present in their depictions is also explored, for a small sampling of the main deities. A full treatment of the symbolism is a subject worthy of a full semester college course. Not only is Hinduism rich in its diversity of gods and goddesses, it is also filled with many different rituals and festivals. Some of the most important rituals that punctuate the life of a Hindu are described. Rituals that are performed for pregnancy, birth, and death are common. Like we are accustomed to in the west, the Hindu religion also celebrates many holidays. I describe some of the most popular. Finally, I give a brief overview of what can only be considered one of the largest collections of religious scriptures in the world. They number over 100, though not all are accorded the same significance. This work is intended to serve as a jumping off point for you to begin your self-exploration of the world´s oldest and third largest religion. Listen to the audiobook today to learn more about this fascinating religion. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Brian Schell.

In this historic recording Eknath Easwaran, who taught meditation and spiritual living for over 40 years, reads his selection of life-affirming writings from the saints, sages, and scriptures of the Christian, Hindu, Sufi, Jewish, Buddhist, and Taoist traditions. This collection includes passages from Easwaran’s translations of the Bhagavad Gita, the Upanishads, and the Dhammapada. Easwaran’s reading is sonorous and deep, slowing down the mind and drawing us into a world of timeless wisdom where our worries and concerns fall back into perspective. Listen to these passages for daily inspiration, for the insights they give into other spiritual traditions, for the light they throw on how to live, and for the deep transformation they can bring through Easwaran’s method of passage meditation. Uplifting and lyrical, sometimes startlingly practical, these inspirational passages all express the same unifying truth – that we are spiritual beings, with limitless resources of love, energy, and wisdom, intended to make our contribution to our communities and our world. 1.
