<p>Easwaran鈥檚 best-selling translation of the Bhagavad Gita is reliable, readable, and profound. His 55-page introduction places the Gita in its historical context, presents key concepts, and brings out the universality and timelessness of its teachings. This edition includes chapter introductions, notes and a Sanskrit glossary.</p><br /><br /><p>Easwaran grew up in the Hindu tradition in India, learned Sanskrit from a young age, and became a professor of English literature before coming to the West. He is a gifted teacher and an authority on the Indian classics and world mysticism. </p><br /><br /><p>The Gita opens, dramatically, on a battlefield, as the warrior Arjuna turns in anguish to his spiritual guide, Sri Krishna, for answers to the fundamental questions of life. Yet the Gita is not what it seems 鈥?it鈥檚 not a dialogue between two mythical figures at the dawn of Indian history. 鈥淭he battlefield is a perfect backdrop, but the Gita鈥檚 subject is the war within, the struggle for self-mastery that every human being must wage if he or she is to emerge from life victorious.鈥?lt;/p><br />

<p>Five hundred years before the birth of Jesus, a God-realized being named Lao-tzu in ancient China dictated 81 verses, which are regarded by many as the ultimate commentary on the nature of our existence. The classic text of these 81 verses, called the Tao Te Ching or the Great Way, offers advice and guidance that is balanced, moral, spiritual, and always concerned with working for the good.</p><p>In this book,聽Dr. Wayne W. Dyer聽has reviewed hundreds of translations of the Tao Te Ching and has written 81 distinct essays on how to apply the ancient wisdom of Lao-tzu to today鈥檚 modern world. This work contains the entire 81 verses of the Tao, compiled from Wayne鈥檚 researching of 12 of the most well-respected translations of text that have survived for more than 25 centuries. Each chapter is designed for actually living the Tao or the Great Way today. Some of the chapter titles are 鈥淟iving with Flexibility,鈥?鈥淟iving Without Enemies,鈥?and 鈥淟iving by Letting Go.鈥?Each of the 81 brief chapters focuses on living the Tao and concludes with a section called 鈥淒oing the Tao Now.鈥?lt;/p><p>Wayne spent one entire year reading, researching, and meditating on Lao-tzu鈥檚 messages, practicing them each day and ultimately writing down these essays as he felt Lao-tzu wanted you to know them.<br /><br />This is a work to be read slowly, one essay a day. As Wayne says, 鈥淭his is a book that will forever change the way you look at your life, and the result will be that you鈥檒l live in a new world aligned with nature. Writing this book changed me forever, too. I now live in accord with the natural world and feel the greatest sense of peace I鈥檝e ever experienced. I鈥檓 so proud to present this interpretation of the Tao Te Ching, and offer the same opportunity for change that it has brought me.鈥?lt;/p>

<b>An intimate guide to self-acceptance and discovery that offers a Buddhist perspective on wholeness within the framework of a Western understanding of self.</b><br /><br />For decades, Western psychology has promised fulfillment through building and strengthening the ego. We are taught that the ideal is a strong, individuated self, constructed and reinforced over a lifetime. But Buddhist psychiatrist Mark Epstein has found a different way.<br /><br /><i>Going to Pieces Without Falling Apart</i> shows us that happiness doesn't come from any kind of acquisitiveness, be it material or psychological. Happiness comes from letting go. Weaving together the accumulated wisdom of his two worlds--Buddhism and Western psychotherapy鈥擡pstein shows how "the happiness that we seek depends on our ability to balance the ego's need to do with our inherent capacity to be." He encourages us to relax the ever-vigilant mind in order to experience the freedom that comes only from relinquishing control.<br /><br />Drawing on events in his own life and stories from his patients, <i>Going to Pieces Without Falling Apart</i> teaches us that only by letting go can we start on the path to a more peaceful and spiritually satisfying life.
