Essence of the Dhammapada

Essence of the Dhammapada

The Buddha call to Nirvana Eknath Easwaran, translator of the best-selling edition of the Dhammapada, sees this powerful scripture as a perfect map for the spiritual journey. Said to be the text closest to the Buddha actual words, it is a collection of short teachings memorized during his lifetime by his disciples. Easwaran presents the Dhammapada as a guide to spiritual perseverance, progress and ultimately enlightenment – a heroic confrontation with life as it really is, with straight answers to our deepest questions. We witness the heartbreak of death, for instance – what does that mean for us? What is love? How does karma work? How do we follow the spiritual life in the midst of work and family? Does Nirvana really exist and if so, what is it like to be illumined? In his interpretation of Buddhist themes, illustrated with stories from the Buddha life, Easwaran offers a view of the concept of right understanding that is both exhilarating and instructive. He shares his experiences on the spiritual path, giving the advice that only an experienced teacher and practitioner can offer and urges us to answer for ourselves the Buddha call to Nirvana – that mysterious, enduring state of wisdom, joy and peace. Eknath Easwaran was Professor of English literature at the University of Nagpur, India and an established writer, when he came to the United States on the fulbright exchange program in 1959. As founder and director of the Blue mountain center of meditation and the Nilgiris press, he taught the classics of world mysticism and the practice of meditation from 1960 till his death in 1999.

Hindutva or Hind Swaraj

Hindutva or Hind Swaraj

The very last work of Jnanpith award winner and preeminent writer U.R. Ananthamurthy is a timely reading, and trenchant critique, of the rise of Hindutva nationalism in India. Juxtaposing Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh founder V.D. Savarkar's idea of Hindutva with M.K. Gandhi's concept of Hind Swaraj, the book examines two directions that were open to India at the time of Independence. Born out of a meditation of the idea of the nation state and nationalism, and what the new power structures and centres mean for the very idea of India, the essay uses shifting tones and styles to make a deep, elegant and heartfelt point about the human cost of radicalization.
