Wisdom celebrates those who aspire to nirvana—the highest level of heart-, body-, and mind-consciousness. Each page presents the wise words of a great master, philosopher, or poet accompanied by a moving photograph of India. Originally published in 2004, this new edition showcases the best of the acclaimed book in a smaller, charming format. Contemporary specialists on Indian culture are quoted alongside ancient yet timeless sources, including the poems of Rabindranath Tagore and Jiddu Krishnamurti in addition to the most significant of the Hindu sacred writings, the Vedas. This inspirational book artfully conveys the essence of India, and the effect is transformative, awakening our senses to receive these simple yet profound teachings.
