"With my love and blessings" is how Easwaran concluded his letters to close students in the last years of his life. Published in October 2000, With My Love and Blessings was assembled under the loving guidance of Christine Easwaran, drawing from the thousands of photographs and transcribed talks, letters, dictations, and notes in the archives of the BMCM and the personal collections of longtime students. It is a tribute to the eternal legacy of the life of Sri Eknath Easwaran.
