The Mind of the Guru: Conversations with Spiritual Masters
The Mind of the Guru: Conversations with Spiritual Masters
Description
About the Book:

In The Mind of the Guru Rajiv Mehrotra presents dialogues with twenty contemporary sages and masters who have illumined the minds of millions around the world. Ranged here are gurus as diverse as B. K. S. Iyengar, who brought yoga from the world of esoteric to our living rooms, and Mata Amritanandamayi, whose mere presence invokes an overwhelming awareness of low. There is Deepak Chopra discussing a quantum healing of mind and body, Sogyal Rinpoche encouraging us to look at death so that we might live a better life and Sri Sri Ravi Shankar reaffirming each person's right and access to happiness. And there is the unique and contrary voice of U. G. Krishnamurti telling us that all talk of transformation is poppycock. There are no grand narratives or final solution, only guide who can show the way to the light within. Underlying the dialogues is their wisdom on how we make ourselves unhappy - and guidance on how we can turn our lives around to achieve happiness.

As Vipassana guru S. N. Goenka says, 'The teacher shows the way. One must walk in the path and experience it step by step.' This book is a remarkable journey both for those looking to take their first tentative steps and those already well on the path.

About The Author:

For over three decades he has been a familiar face on public relevision, notably as the anchor of an in-depth one-on-one talk show that has been through several incarnations.

Testimonials
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books...
