Spiritual Cookbooks
    #1190794 - 01/04/03 07:17 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)

Everybody knows (or can easily find out about) the major sacred texts, but I just wanted to provide a list of some helpful books to guide the way.  I've tried to read a lot of books about finding one's way over the years, but these are the ones I never forget, the ones I keep coming back to, the ones that really resonate with experience and give the best, most practical advice.

Be Here Now--Ram Dass
Look for Yourself--Douglas E. Harding
The Importance of Living--Lin Yutang
The Perennial Philosophy--Aldous Huxley
Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism--Chogyam Trungpa
Anything by J. Krishnamurti
The Light Inside the Dark--John Tarrant
Light On Yoga--B.K.S. Iyengar
The Miracle of Mindfulness--Thich That Nanh
A Path With Heart--Jack Kornfeld
The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna--M.
Zen in English Literature and Oriental Classics--R.H. Blythe
Pensees--Pascal
The Gospel According to Jesus--Stephen Mitchell
Zen and Psychology of Transformation--Hubert Benoit
The Marriage of Cadmus and Harmony--Roberto Calasso
Ka--Roberto Calasso
Tertium Organum--P.D. Ouspensky
Books I Have Loved--Osho (which also lists many other great books)

Meditation is really the most important thing, though.  An hour of meditation a day opens doors that none of these books by themselves can, whereas just reading these books without the experience of deep meditation is just so much spinning of the mental wheels.  The best, though, is both put together.

Please add your own recommendations to the list! :smile:
