Banyen's Description: 

Every person has ways of dealing with life’s challenges, but these resources are often locked beneath layers of stress and anxiety. Focused repetition of a mantram, or holy name or phrase, provides a simple, effective way to regain one’s natural clarity, energy, confidence, and control. The good news is that the mantram’s power to heal, calm, and restore is available to anyone, and in this book, renowned spiritual teacher Eknath Easwaran (1911-1999) shows us how.

Publisher’s Description: 

The mantram, or mantra, is a short, powerful, spiritual formula from the world's great traditions, repeated silently in the mind, anytime, anywhere. Examples of mantrams are "Rama, Rama, " used by Gandhi, or "My God and My All, " repeated by St. Francis of Assisi, or "Om Mane Padme Hum." Easwaran taught the use of the mantram for over forty years as part of his passage meditation program. He explains how the mantram works, and gives practical guidelines for using it to focus our thoughts and access deeper resources of strength, patience, and love. The mantram can help us replenish our energy, release creativity, and heal old conflicts. These resonant phrases work equally well for parents with young children, colleagues at work, couples in a relationship, in illness or depression, and even at the time of death. And Easwaran shows how repetition of the mantram can open the door to a life that is increasingly meaningful and fulfilling.
