In 1893, Swami Vivekananda spoke to an audience of 7,000 at the first Parliament of World's Religions in Chicago. Ever since, the West has been fascinated - and confused - by India's spiritual and religious philosophies. This is perhaps more true than ever today, when millions practice the asanas (postures) of yoga with little understanding of the discipline's philosophical underpinnings.
In this compendium, seminar leader and Vedanta teacher Dave DeLuca presents 166 writings that reveal the heart of Indian religious philosophy. Beautiful passages from the Upanishads, the Bhagavad-Gita, the Yoga Sutras, the Bhakti Sutras, the Astavakra Samhita, and the Srimad Bhagavatam are presented, along with teachings by two of the most revered masters of the modern era, Sri Ramakrishna and Swami Vivekananda. With the discernment of a great communicator and the understanding of a devotee,
DeLuca offers readers an inviting way to begin or deepen their own understanding.
