    Rarely in a lifetime does a new spiritual classic appear that has the power to change people's lives and transform future generations. This is such a book. The Essence of the Bhagavad Gita: Explained by Paramhansa Yogananda shares the profound insights of Yogananda, author of Autobiography of a Yogi, as remembered by one of his few remaining direct disciples, Swami Kriyananda.

    What did you love best about The Essence of the Bhagavad Gita?

    This is a wonderful book as is most everything by Swami kriananda. he has such a pleasent vioce and style it makes this a real pleasure to listen to.
    This is not a compleat look at the Bhagavad Gita and does not contain much of the text from that book. It does however provide a good introduction to many of the important concepts and is very accesable to anyone weather or not they have read the Bhagavad Gita. Highly recomended to anyone interested in the thoughts of Paramhansa Yogananda or the sciance of self realization.

    This thought-provoking journal of a man's quest for truth - and for himself - has touched and changed an entire generation, and is ready to reach out to a new one. At its heart, the story is all too simple: a man and his son take a motorcycle trip across America. But this is not a simple trip at all, for around every corner, their pilgrimage leads them to new vistas of self-discovery and renewal.

    Carl says: "definitive version, hasn't aged too badly"
    "A clasic book that has nothing to do with Zen."

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I highly recommend this book to anyone. It is an American classic that presents Pirsig’s philosophy of Quality and his struggle to assimilate it in a very readable and interesting way.


    What aspect of Michael Kramer’s performance would you have changed?

    The narration is adequate, Nothing to complain about. There used to be a version available with the author narrating which was much better but it doesn’t seem to be available any more.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    This book is alittle too long to listen to in one sitting.

  • Siddhartha: An Indian Tale

    Siddhartha, a story based on the early life of Gautama Buddha, is concerned with the human search for self-knowledge and authentic spirituality. Hesse had written the first part of the book easily enough, but had to stop for a year with depression, before completing it in 1922. The book is a synthesis of Buddhist, Hindu, Taoist, and Christian thought, though Hesse rejected all conventional religion for a more individual and personal path.

    Carl R. Lunsford says: "One of tye best Hesse novels."

    What made the experience of listening to Siddhartha the most enjoyable?

    This is a very good performance of a realy wonderful and insightful book. It provides a very accessable look at Budest concepts and life in india during the time of the Buda. It does not pretend to be a teacher or a preacher, it simply tells the story in an eligant simple way and alows the reader/listner to be carried along and emersed in this insightful and moving parable. Highly recomended.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Sidartha is the main character, he is very likeable and interesting, providing a good vehicle for the Budest concepts Hesse is trying to convey.


    What about Arthur Brown’s performance did you like?

    The narrator did a great job of presenting this lively text without over acting or remaining too bland. The listner is imediatly drawn into the story and will notice the narration very little. As it should be.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    A journey into the heart of Budisim
