Training the Mind

By Eknath Easwaran

Easwaran’s Talks & Writings

This 30-minute talk from 1991 focuses on the benefits and challenges of training the mind through meditation.

Easwaran explains how a trained, one-pointed mind equips us to be of service to the world and to make our life “a work of art.” Easwaran draws on the Bhagavad Gita to illustrate the spiritual challenge that lies before us, and to explain how we train the mind – through regular, systematic, consistent meditation.

This is the first half of an hour-long talk. If you’d like to continue with this topic you can listen to the second half.
