‘Hard times create strong men. Strong men create good times. Good times create weak men. Weak men create hard times.
The basic premise of this book is that strength and weakness have a spiritual dimension.’
Classic Spirituality for the Modern Man takes a radically new approach to the question of spirituality. Its purpose is to bring the spiritual classics alive so that they can once again serve their original and true purpose: to guide and inspire us as we make our way through life.
Classic Spirituality for the Modern Man introduces for the general reader selections from the most profound and inspirational of spiritual classics from around the world, including:
The Kybalion EcclesiastesLao-tzu, Tao Te ChingBuddha, Dhammapada and ‘On Governance of Thoughts’Chuang-tzu, The Writings of Chuang-tzuHuainanzi, ‘The Old Man Who Lost His Horse’Bhagavad GitaAl-Ghazali, The Alchemy of HappinessRumi, MasnaviPascal, PenséesSchopenhauer, ‘The Vanity of Existence’Nietzsche, Thus Spoke ZarathustraAllen, As a Man Thinketh
These works speak to us of the fundamental principles of spiritual wisdom, the mysterious primordial force of the ‘Tao’, the Buddhist art of maintaining mental and emotional equilibrium, and the essential features of Hindu and Sufi self-cultivation, as well as modern approaches to self-realization. There is no better primer in the art of awakened living.
