Spiritual Education & Right Occupation

By Eknath Easwaran

Easwaran’s Talks & Writings

In this 30-minute talk from 1986, Easwaran uses “Right Occupation” as his springboard for addressing the question "What am I going to do with my life?" He starts his talk from the perspective of a graduating university student, and then shifts the emphasis from academic education to the much loftier education that we can all receive from the great mystics of the world.

This is the first half of an hour-long talk in which Easwaran explains how our main goal is to give back to life, whatever our job or employment. If you enjoy this talk and would like to hear how Easwaran continues this theme, you can also listen to the second half.
