Product Description


"Eknath Easwaran teaches the fine art of transformations: how to find out and become what you really want to be. Making of a Teacher: Conversations With Eknath Easwaran tells the fascinating story of how this noted teacher of meditation transformed his own life, and it shows how others can profit from his discoveries. Making of a Teacher gives the story of how Easwaran came to develop his method of meditation one that makes the best of Eastern spiritual wisdom accessible to active people in the West. And it vividly demonstrates why so many people have used his method to draw upon their deepest reserves of compassion, wisdom, and serenity. Making of a Teacher is both inspiring and informative." -- he The Midwest Book

From the Publisher

This is the fascinating story of how Eknath Easwaran transformed his own life: the influence of his spiritual teacher, his grandmother; his education in an India under the domination of the British Raj, how he came to develop his method of meditation. In presenting these conversations, say the authors, "we have attempted to recreate not only what Easwaran has said but to convey some feeling for what it's like to be with him when he's talking and for what it's like to be one of his students."

Format: Paperback
Both the authors have done a wonderful job in trying to convey Eknath Easwaran's personality - his subtle humour, his wisdom and compassion towards everyone. This book is an inspiration to someone trying to decide or in the process of making a change in their life. I would not recommend reading this book without reading any of Easwaran's other popular books. Knowledge of his writings (or better still the experience of having met him or attended his retreats) helps understand the man in the book much better.
