Timeless Wisdom is a collection of universal texts for study, meditation, and inspiration, selected by Eknath Easwaran, the originator of passage meditation.
An authority on world mysticism, and outstanding translator of the Indian classics, Easwaran chose texts that are positive, practical, and inspiring, which express the universal ideals of love, patience, inner strength, and wisdom. Here are flashes of insight from the Hindu Upanishads, prayers of comfort from the Christian saints, the passionate songs of the Sufis, and deep wisdom from the Jewish, Buddhist, and Taoist traditions.
By reminding us of our essential goodness, they give us hope. Through the legacy of their words, they show us what it means to think in freedom, love fully, and see life as it really is.
This portable, compact anthology includes 95 passages from Easwaran's popular God Makes the Rivers to Flow plus nine new ones.
