  • To understand death, a person must try to understand the purpose of life and the relationship between life and death. The two are partners, each providing a context for the other. Death is not a period, but merely a pause on a long journey. When life and death are accepted as having real meaning and purpose, and death is understood and accepted as part of the human journey, then the fear of death disappears and life can be lived fully. This book is about the relationship between life and death, and the 'how and why' of organizing one's life in a way that leads to expansion and growth, and that is helpful in preparing for the transition we call death.

Hatha should not be merely a system of physical exercise: this work emphasizes the paramount role that the mind plays in hatha yoga, and demonstrates how to elevate the practices of hatha to an inner spiritual experience. This study outlines how the practice of hatha yoga can serve as a means to understand the subtler essences of mind and prana and to prepare for meditation and the awakening of the kundalini force.

  • Easwaran takes one of India's classic wisdom texts, the Katha Upanishad, and explains how it embraces all the key ideas of Indian spirituality within the context of a powerful mythic quest - the story of a young hero who ventures into the land of death in search of immortality. Illustrating the insights of the Katha through analogies and everyday examples, Easwaran shows how these ancient teachings help us gain a deeper understanding of our world and ourselves today.
  • The Key to Unlock Limitless Wisdom and Creativity and Solve All of Life's Challenges by Leonard Perlmutter (Ram Lev) Your Conscience is a clear, concise, and logical introduction to how your mind works. This short, powerful book is the perfect entry point for readers who want to live a more fulfilling and healthy life. Using everyday language, Your Conscience illuminates the truth that the wisdom and creativity we seek is already within us. We just need the right tools to access it. Your Conscience presents a simple explanation of The Four Functions of the Mind: senses, ego, unconscious, and the Conscience. Readers are taught how, and why, to coordinate these four functions to live the joyful life we all long for. By employing this practical knowledge, readers can realize immediate benefits through simple, empowering experiments offered at the end of the book. These include food choices, focusing attention, easy breathing exercises, preparing for sleep, telling the truth, and strengthening relationships: experiments that teach beginners how to rely on the Conscience for every decision, in every relationship. Wisdom, creativity, love, joy, and good health will inevitably follow. This timely book describes our Conscience as the key to unlock our own brilliant insight. No one is excluded from the fulfillment of this promise. We only need the guidance of a loving teacher. Leonard Perlmutter is that teacher, and he has offered each of us a very practical gift through Your Conscience.

  • Getting caught in unwanted thoughts and emotions can feel like an inevitable part of life. But Eknath Easwaran, a world-famous spiritual teacher who taught meditation for nearly 40 years, shows a way to break free. Just as a fitness routine can result in a strong, supple body, spiritual disciplines can shape a secure personality and a resilient, loving mind. Best of all, these opportunities to grow stronger spiritually arise not only during meditation but throughout the day. Whether working with difficult colleagues, going out to eat, or responding to a child’s needs, readers learn how to try out different, wiser choices. With humor and empathy, Easwaran places timeless teachings from the Buddha and other mystics into contemporary scenes — watching a juggler on the street, taking a tennis lesson, going to the theater. Training the mind is life’s biggest adventure, and Conquest of Mind shows how this practice brings deepening relationships, increasing vitality, and a greater sense of purpose.
