DVD42: Universal Wisdom of the Great Mystics

The River of God; The City of God

Even after decades of meditation, I still cannot get over the miracle of what precious treasures lie within our consciousness, ready to be discovered through the practice of this simple discipline.

Beginning in 1979, Easwaran’s students began to film the informal talks he gave several times each week, as well as those he gave at retreats and lectures open to the general public. Many of these talks have now been published on DVD, creating an unparalleled opportunity to watch a spiritual teacher of consummate skill, wisdom, and empathy.

He might begin with a poem by Kabir or Therese of Lisieux – or with a verse from the Bhagavad Gita, or a feature story about mountain climbers from that morning’s New York Times. But whatever his point of departure, his deeper purpose was unchanging, and that was to share with anyone whose heart was open his boundless enthusiasm for meditation and the spiritual life.
