Banyen's Description: 

Eknath Easwaran (1910-1999) taught meditation to enthusiastic North Americans for more than thirty years. The Eight Point Program which he developed is based on silent meditation on memorized inspirational passages chosen from the world’s great spiritual traditions. It appeals to people of all walks of life, in many countries, from different faiths or none, who want to lead active, spiritually fulfilling lives in the midst of family, friends, and society.

Expanding on the Eight-Point Program outlined in Easwaran’s book Meditation, Conquest of Mind shows us how to overcome self-imposed limitations and the conditioning of our own likes and dislikes. It provides practical tools and tips for refashioning mind and character using this program of daily meditation and supporting practices. An important book for people who know there are no quick fixes and who are looking for an approach that is both practical and spiritual.

In his introduction, Easwaran writes:

Nothing can be more important than being able to choose the way we think—our feelings, aspirations, and desires; the way we view our world and ourselves. Mastery of the mind opens avenues to hope. It means that we can begin to reshape our life and character, rebuild relationships, thrive in the stress of daily living, become the kind of person we want ourselves to be. I have written for those who want to understand not only how the mind works, but also how it can be changed.

Among Eknath Easwaran’s other books are Gandhi the Man, Dialogue with Death and the three volume Bhagavad Gita for Daily Living. See easwaran.org.
