Shaftesbury UK, Element Books, 1996. 1st edition 192 pp. Pb. Saraswati was the guru and leader of a group of Hindus in northern India who trace the founding of their group to Shankara, the ninth-century Hindu philosopher. Consequently, the point of view expressed by Saraswati is that of Advaita, or nondualism. This book is a series of meditations from this Hindu perspective on themes such as nonattachment, desire, spiritual discipline, renunciation, etc. The 17 major sections of the book are divided into two- or three-page chapters in which Saraswati presents his viewpoint and illustrates the topic under discussion with a story. Many of the stories are from the two major Hindu epics, the Mahabharata and the Ramayana, recast in Saraswati's own words. very good condition
