Publisher's Summary

Sometimes illumination occurs spontaneously or, as Ram Dass experienced, in a cosmic moment of the heart opening. More commonly, it happens when we remove the dust from the mirror of our spiritual heart with daily practice - to see beyond the illusion of our transient thoughts and emotions to the vast and luminous landscape of our true nature.

For five decades, Ram Dass has explored the depths of consciousness and love, and brought back insights as his service to others. With Polishing the Mirror, he gathers together his essential teachings for being and loving, here and now, in the eternal present. For those just starting on the path, this is a primer for living from the spiritual heart. For those already practicing it, is a reference point for daily life in the spirit.

In this audiobook, read by co-author Rameshwar Das, listeners will discover perennial wisdom, humor, teaching stories, and guidance into Ram Dass’s own spiritual practices, including:

  • Bhakti Yoga - devotion, opening our hearts to unconditional love
  • Practices for living, aging, dying, and embracing the natural flow of life
  • Karma Yoga - transformation through selfless service
  • Working with fear and suffering as a path to grace and freedom
  • Step-by-step guidance in devotional chant, meditation, mantra, and more

Polishing the Mirror is Ram Dass’s invitation to experience who we are and why we are here, and how to become beacons of unconditional love.

This unabridged audiobook includes four bonus tracks:

  • Pure Awareness - a guided meditation with Ram Dass
  • I Am Loving Awareness - a guided meditation with Ram Dass
  • An Introduction to Vipassana Meditation with Ram Dass
  • Sita Ram - kirtan chant music with Jai Uttal

    "a terrific very helpful book"

    I liked all of it very much. it does need, however, a decent table of contents (no titles, chapter numbers don't line up with book chapters). but narration is terrific.

    "A great teacher never will be out of touch!"

    Ram Dass has shown me in 60th., as he is communicating with me in my 70th. I will listen to this book a few more times, I am sure of that!

    "Awakening from the heart"

    I love listening to the stories of Ram
    Das & find the gentle way in which humour is used to bring a heightened awareness to both ageing & dying processes is sublime.
