My own personal Reading List
I will keep it updated with my current readings, as well as past readings, and links for you to find, and enjoy, these great works as well.
Current Reading: The Upanishads, translated by Eknath Easwaran
This book is from a three-part series that Easwaran compiled around 1987, which also includes The Bhagavad Gita and The Dhammapada. What a gifted author! So many times you find translations like these, so rife with western interpretation, you’re left to wonder if you’re really getting the intended meaning.
From the inside-rear of the book cover…
“Easwaran (1920-1999) brings to this volume a rare combination of credentials: knowledge of Sanskrit, an intuitive understanding of his Hindu legacy, and a mastery of English. He was chairman of the English department at a major Indian university when he came to the United States on a Fulbright fellowship in 1959.
A gifted teacher who lived for many years in the West, Easwaran explains the concepts underlying the classics of Indian spirituality in fresh, authoritative, and profoundly simple ways.”
