In his clear, easy-to-follow guide to meditation, Eknath Easwaran outlines the many spiritual and physical benefits to be reaped from the discipline. He asserts that by mastering the eight points in his plan, we can liberate ourselves from harmful emotions, compulsions, stresses and cravings that can block our creative energy. To banish these destructive patterns, we can train our minds not to be angry or depressed and learn instead to divert our power into discovery of the self and the outside world.
