Easwaran explains how the mind works, and how it can be changed, using meditation and other spiritual disciplines to shape a secure personality and a resilient, loving mind.
With humor and empathy, Easwaran places timeless teachings from the Buddha and other mystics into contemporary scenes – watching a juggler on the street, taking a tennis lesson, going to the theater. Training the mind brings deepening relationships, increasing vitality, and a greater sense of purpose. When you work with difficult colleagues, go out to eat, or respond to a child’s needs, you can now try out different, wiser choices.
The audiobook includes Chapters 1-10 of the print book, but omits Chapters 11-13, which were added in 2010. It is read by Paul Bazely, a professional actor and longtime student of Easwaran.
