Short Readings of Daily Wisdom

Spiritual readings for each day offer immediate inspiration for readers seeking a more spiritually grounded lifestyle. Easwaran’s commentary on each reading explains how the wisdom of the ages can help you here and now.

The readings are from the world’s great philosophers, poets, saints, and sages: Augustine and Einstein, Emily Dickinson and Jalaluddin Rumi, Biblical verses, Buddhist sutras, Hasidic proverbs, and Hindu Upanishads.

Some days offer gentle reminders to slow down and be mindful. Other days give advice for changing an unwanted habit, mending a relationship, staying strong in hard times, or striving toward the peaks of spirituality described in all religions.

Read this book in the morning to start the day right, or at night to prepare for peaceful rest. Each day brings fresh insights and inspiration.

I get so much joy from reading the daily devotionals. I have given this as a gift to well over 15 friends of all faiths and they all have been very moved by the readings.

Wonderful daily thought provoking reading that help you keep life in perspective. Spiritual without being overly religious!
