God Makes The Rivers To Flow


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Eknath Easwaran taught spiritual living for nearly 40 years and drew deep, ongoing inspiration from the sacred literature of all traditions — the great river of wisdom that is always flowing throughout the world. The 149 short extracts in this anthology come from the much-loved saints, sages, and scriptures of the Christian, Hindu, Sufi, Jewish, Native American, Buddhist, and Taoist traditions. These passages can be read for daily inspiration, for their insights into other spiritual traditions, for the light they throw on how to live, for the sustenance they offer when we feel sad or tired, and for the deep transformation they can bring in Easwaran’s method of passage meditation. Rich supporting material includes stories from India, detailed background notes, suggestions for memorization and for studying the texts in practices such as lectio divina from the Christian tradition, and instruction in using these texts in passage meditation.

Rivers Of God


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

You have a River of God on the inside of you! In John 7:38 Jesus stood up and declared "he that believes on me out of his belly shall flow rivers (plural) of living water!" Was Jesus speaking in the plural for emphasis, or was he revealing something of the streams of God's glory in your life? The very first mention of rivers in the Bible reveals the astounding truth - that God has placed something of Himself in each believer that can only be described as four mighty rivers. These are intended and designed by heaven to flow out into the landscape of your life and alter your experiences into the perfect image of "as in heaven so on earth." Through the understanding of these rivers on the inside of you will revolutionize your life!

The Crucible Of Religion


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Religion is commonly viewed through the lens of the world's religious traditions, stressing the differences, and often the conflicts, among them. The author of this book instead presents religion as a common and universal human phenomenon, based deeply in a human nature shared by all. In this view, the underlining and unifying principle of religion is a particular affirmative attitude toward life, which he presents as the Ultimate Value, and as such the key cultural constituent and defining factor of all religion. This Ultimate Value finds its expressions in various civilizations, and results in a variety of forms; these are what we know as the world's religious traditions. By analyzing the roles of both culture and civilization in their attitudes toward life, the author places religion beyond religious traditions, and shows how the latter, regardless of whether they are theistic or atheistic, draw their principles from the former, mainly by promoting the Golden Rule in its applications.

Hinduism And The 1960s


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

The West has drawn upon Hinduism on a wide scale, from hatha yoga and meditation techniques, to popular culture in music and fashion, yet the contribution of Hinduism to the counter-culture of the 1960s has not been analysed in full. Hinduism and the 1960s looks at the youth culture of the 1960s and early 1970s, and the way in which it was influenced by Hinduism and Indian culture. It examines the origins of the 1960s counter-culture in the Beat movement of the 1950s, and their interest in Eastern religion, notably Zen. When the Beatles visited India to study transcendental meditation, there was a rapid expansion in interest in Hinduism. Young people were already heading east on the so-called 'Hippie Trail', looking for spiritual enlightenment and an escape from the material lifestyle of the West. Paul Oliver examines the lifestyle which they adopted, from living in ashrams to experimenting with drugs, sexual liberation, ayurvedic medicine and yoga. This engaging book analyses the interaction between Hinduism and the West, and the way in which each affected the other. It demonstrates the ways in which contemporary Western society has learned from the ancient religion of Hinduism, and incorporated such teachings as yoga, meditation and a natural holistic lifestyle, into daily life. Each chapter contains a summary and further reading guidance, and a glossary is included at the end of the book, making this ideal reading for courses on Hinduism, Indian religions, and religion and popular culture.

Our Spiritual Crisis


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Michael Nagler argues that problems now faced by American society spring from a false way of looking at the world,based on the premise that material things are fundamental, consciousness merely derivative. He advocates a return to the ancient and Eastern spritual view that consciousness is fundamental. In developing a new conception of the universe and applying it to our social problems, Dr. Nagler explains how we can best oppose war, consumerism, commercialism, scientism, and the spiritual hollowness of modern life. Commentary by Lewis S. Mudge.

Love Never Faileth


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

This book shows how we can stretch our capacity to love - stretch it beyond anything we can imagine. To love more, we need the desire to love more. We need to slow down - not to do less, but to relax the frantic pace of thinking that leaves so little room for what is worthwhile. We need ways to reorder our priorities. We need time - time for others. And we need some way of renewing ourselves, day in and day out. Eknath Easwaran describes specific methods of meditation and prayer which we can use to tap our inner strength at any time, even when we are frustrated, angry, or sapped by doubt. Introductions to each section give glimpses into the lives and teachings of these saints.
