Respected author Eknath Easwaran taught his universal approach to meditation and spiritual living for 40 years, and he shares a wealth of practical experience, and wise, surprising insights into our dilemmas today. He's always gentle, often funny, illustrating his advice with everyday anecdotes and inspiration from the world's saints. Whether you're feeling tested by life's challenges, or just curious to know more about choosing your thoughts, these essays can guide you, uplift and entertain you - giving you the courage and the skill to try something different the next time you feel under pressure.
Listening to this reading by British actor Paul Bazely, you can learn how to use a mantram (or mantra) to quiet the mind in any situation. You'll find out how to slow down and stay in the present, so you can improve concentration, be more effective at work, and free yourself of unwanted anxieties and resentments. In later essays, Easwaran describes how to stay calm and kind when faced by others' anger, or our own, and how, over time, by learning to calm the mind, each of us can become an instrument of peace.

The Beauty Of Being In The Present Moment
Easwaran offers a great deal of inspiration and many insightful teachings in this short talk. The focus is on unlocking the deep resources present within a calm mind. This is an excellent look at the need for living in the now, the use of a mantra and the practice of meditation.
To me, the author's thoughts on just doing one thing at a time and keeping the attention on the present moment are both powerful and timely in our current day world of multitasking and constant worry. A deceptively simple program that requires frequent replays to grasp all it has to offer. Highly recommended.
