Love, compassion, meaning, hope, and freedom from fear are not qualities we need to acquire. We simply need to uncover what we already have.
“Original goodness” is Eknath Easwaran’s phrase for this spark of divinity hidden in every one of us, regardless of our personal liabilities or past mistakes.
Commenting on the Beatitudes from the Sermon on the Mount, Easwaran shows how this spark of divinity can energize our lives – beginning with a simple method of meditation that gradually removes the conditioning that hides our native goodness.
This revised second edition (July 2017) has minor corrections and an updated interior layout.
The audiobook (unabridged) is read by Paul
Bazely, a professional actor and longtime student of Easwaran. Music is by Yann Stoneman, also a student of Easwaran.
