Publisher's Summary

Easwaran takes the timeless teachings of the Buddha and other mystics and tells us how we can train the mind not just during meditation but throughout the day. 

Feeling trapped by unwanted thoughts and emotions can seem an inevitable part of life. But Easwaran, who taught meditation for 40 years, teaches us a way to break free.

Just as a fitness routine can create a strong, supple body, spiritual disciplines can shape a secure personality and a resilient, loving mind. Writing as an experienced, friendly coach, Easwaran takes the timeless teachings of the Buddha and other mystics and tells how we can train the mind not just during meditation but throughout the day.

Working with difficult colleagues, choosing what to eat, and listening to a child’s needs are all opportunities to try out different, wiser responses. Easwaran describes how training the mind is a glorious challenge - one that brings joy and purpose to life.

This audiobook contains the first 10 chapters of the print book, but omits the last three chapters which were added in 2010.

For those who really want to free the clutter of the mind. Truly Inspiring!

Among the numerous spiritual sources, Easwaran appealed to me as a modern, practical, reasonable and above all pragmatic one.

His language is simple but full of confidence. He gives you good reason for everything that he suggests instead of just imposing thoughts and ideas.

Fascinating, and capable of changing lives!

Conquest of Mind. a Practical Spiritual Guide

Until recently I had never heard of Eknath Easwaren. His teaching is drawn from Mystics and contemplatives from a wide breadth of religious traditions and spiritual paths. Very profound, yet immediately accessible with practical application. Conquest of Mind would benefit anyone seeking to be spiritually aware and seeking a deep connection with the divine source within each of us. Paul Bazely's narration seems to channel Easwaren, word for word, thought for thought, inflection for inflection.

Words can't describe how much I have benefited

Not all of us are blessed to be associated a spiritual teacher and have access to this knowledge. This 8 point program is an immense help for those seeking this knowledge (like me) and I feel truly blessed to have found these teachings from a spiritual leader like Eknath Easwaran.

Love Easwaren's work,

Finished it in one night. He gives great reasons to meditate. Some of his other recordings he narrates them himself.He is a man of real wisdom and his advise is well worth following.

Worth its weight in gold

The book is an effective and practical road map for strengthening the mind. I was able to put weekly steps into practice so I liked this book.
The accent being british is not easy for all Indians to understand perhaps. But the reader is excellent too.
