Easwaran's Teachings on Work & Purpose
A spiritual revolution is needed now more than ever, Easwaran says, and “We can all play a part in this peaceful revolution by practicing the spiritual disciplines which have come down the centuries in the great religions of the world.”
Meditation makes us kings and queens of our own lives, Easwaran explains in this seven-minute video clip. We gradually bring our thoughts under our control, enabling us to make our fullest contribution to life.
I Give, Therefore I Am
“The more you look upon your life as a trust for the benefit of others,” Easwaran says in this article, “the less complicated – and the more effective and satisfying – your work and relationships will become.”
