The Goal of Life: Part 1

By Eknath Easwaran

Easwaran’s Talks & Writings

This talk from February 1992 features Easwaran’s commentary on the goal of life, which we can reach through diligent spiritual practice.

In the fall of 1991 Easwaran had a serious health crisis. In this talk, given shortly after his recovery, he opens by expressing his joy at returning to teaching. His speaking pace is quite slow, so you may need a few minutes to become accustomed to his delivery – but it’s a wonderfully lofty topic and worth the effort!   

This is the first half of a 30-minute talk. If you’d like to continue listening on this theme, we recommend the second half.
