Renewal
A Little Book of Courage and Hope
Borrow Borrow
Inspiration to lift our spirits and give us courage to make a difference.
Our personal example – in every aspect of our lives – is a very powerful instrument of change, more powerful than many of us realize. Renewal is a little book of hope, to lift our spirits and give us courage when we're facing problems, and to offer gentle, sometimes surprising answers to the question "But what can I do?"
Easwaran is one of the twentieth century's great spiritual teachers and an authentic guide to timeless wisdom. In these short readings on themes such as loving relationships, raising children, living simply, and aging wisely, he presents fresh insights to reveal our fundamental interconnectedness, our unity with all life.
This collection includes inspiration from Gandhi and the world's saints, engaging anecdotes, and practical suggestions, all of which are accessible to readers of any faith, philosophy, or lifestyle. Together, they demonstrate that small daily efforts to improve our own lives and the lives of those around us can add up to a powerful force for renewal – for ourselves and for our world.
Renewal is based on the earlier book Your Life Is Your Message which has been carefully abridged to convey Easwaran's insights for readers today.

About the Author-
  • Eknath Easwaran (1910-1999) is respected around the world as an authentic guide to timeless wisdom. His approach fits naturally into any faith, philosophy, or lifestyle.

    Born in a small village in Kerala state, India, Easwaran grew up listening to his grandmother's age-old stories, and learned from her wise, loving example as she guided and supported her busy extended family. As a young man, Easwaran visited Gandhi in his ashram and was deeply influenced by the way he brought spiritual values into daily life.

    Easwaran came to the United States on the Fulbright exchange program in 1959, and in 1961 he founded the Blue Mountain Center of Meditation in California, which carries on his work today through publications and retreats.

    In 1968, at the University of California, Berkeley, Easwaran taught the first academic course on meditation ever offered for credit at a major American university. He continued to teach his method of passage meditation and his program for spiritual living to an American and international audience for almost forty years.

    His books have been translated into twenty-six languages, and more than 1.4 million copies are in print, including his best-selling Classics of Indian Spirituality series (The Bhagavad Gita, The Upanishads, and The Dhammapada, Nilgiri Press 2007).
