Suggested Reading

I have often been asked, both as an author and speaker on the subject of Advaita, as well as a spiritual book publisher, to recommend books to read. Almost all my reading of books on this or similar subjects took place after I met two beings who impacted me deeply – Eckhart Tolle and Ramesh Balsekar. Up until then I wasn’t an avid reader of such books, though in my younger years I had read lots of books on personal growth and self-improvement, healing modalities, past lives and so on.

 

Here are the books that impacted me, and I hope they enrich your life too.
