Easwaran's translation of these classic texts has been highly acclaimed, and in these informal talks to close students he draws out the main themes of eleven Upanishads.

    In this series of informal talks to close students, Eknath Easwaran comments on short extracts from the Imitation of Christ by Thomas à Kempis, a classic 15th-century Christian text. Recognizing that these gems of spiritual counselling are expressed in difficult, medieval language, Easwaran takes care to place them in a contemporary context. He shows how this great text contains much sound, sensitive psychology that can guide us in making wise choices today.

    Eknath Easwaran grew up in Gandhi's India and was deeply inspired by him. As a young man, he read Gandhi's weekly articles and visited his ashram, walking with Gandhi and observing him in deep meditation during his prayer service. What fascinated Easwaran was Gandhi's magnificent spiritual transformation - from a shy, ineffectual lawyer to the Mahatma, the "great soul" who led millions of Indians in their successful nonviolent struggle for independence.

    Stress and anxiety affect us all - but some people seem to cope better than others. What makes the difference? If we learn to calm our minds, Easwaran says, we can find the center of strength within us all. Life will inevitably send trials, from minor irritations to major crises, but we can choose how to respond. We can learn to access the inner resources of energy, love, and wisdom we need to ride the waves of life minute by minute, day by day.

    Author Eknath Easwaran grew up in Gandhi's India and was deeply influenced by the way he brought spiritual values into daily life. In this reading, British-based actor Paul Bazely captures the quiet passion of Easwaran's recollections of Gandhi's impact on India - "the human alchemy he wrought". For Easwaran, Gandhi's lasting contribution was not just as an outstanding exponent of selfless service and nonviolence, but above all as a mystic who gave us a higher image of ourselves.
