The Real Deal
Published by Thriftbooks.com User , 14 years ago
I'm over sixty now. I've been reading books about "the path," the search, the quest, about meditation, all sorts of wisdom traditions - all that, since I was still a teenager in the sixties. I have stacks of wise books taller than I am about Zen, about Taoism, Buddhism, Chaung Tze, Lao Tze, about how to meditate, what to eat, what this or that famous wise person taught... Then I was looking in the public library for a biography of Ramakrishna when I found this book. I started reading it. "When the student is ready, the teacher will appear." Isn't that how the old saying goes? This book is written in clear and easily understandable terms which make the content of the teachings accessible to the western reader. The message is timely and sympathetic to the challenges we face these days. It contains practical advice that anyone can put to good use and into action RIGHT NOW. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS book to anyone interested in meditation, yoga, Vedanta (of course) Hindu or Buddhist wisdom, AND to any seeker on the path. You know who you are. Wait, come to think of it, perhaps you don't know "who you are"... so, find out. Read this book. Namasté
Very Down to Earth and Practical

You know, one thing I always feel is, of what use is religion, What ever the religion may be, if it doesn't better the quality of the life we live, doesnt pull us out of the difficulties and challenges we land ourselves in. . Usually the vedic interpretations are too metaphysical and tedious to understand and relate. Here is a surprisingly wonderful interpretations of the millennia old wisdom of the Vedas as applied to our day to day lives. It takes you step by step from the challenges of the modern world or the Technology Age to its woes, the reasons and how to overcome them in a more generic way. This could be life changing. Swami Adiswarananda has epitomized the spirit of his Guru. Enjoy!!
