Best Spiritual Books for understanding Spiritual Enlightenment

Hello Friends !

Even though there are thousands of spiritual books floating in the market, but most of them actually confuse the readers rather than enlightening them , primarily because the corresponding  writer is just writing what he would have heard or read somewhere.

However , only people who have themselves practiced meditation and have themselves experienced the mystic cosmos can actually write what to do,how to do and what to expect.

In other words, a Yogi and Not a writer is the right person to follow and to listen to .

Accordingly, lets help each other in our spiritual journey by listing such wonderful spiritual books which  are really worth a read  and are practical in their approach rather than just another run of the mill page accumulation.

Here’s my list :-

1.Mystic’s Musings by Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev

It is basically a compilation of extracts from Sadhguru’s discourses & talks.There are hundreds of questions of all kinds, asked by various disciples/curious people about Spirituality and each one then being answered by Sadhguru in a perfect way .This Book answers nearly all the questions about Spirituality that arise in a beginner’s mind.

2. Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramahansa Yogananda

                                          It’s a spiritual treasure which was  published first in 1946 and talks about miracles,yogic teachings and touches teachings of Jesus Christ in a modern way . The popularity of this book can be judged from the fact that its in publication from last 71 years.

3. Be Here Now by Ram Dass – 

It is a book on Meditation,Yoga and Spirituality by western born Yogi Ram Dass ( Real Name Richard Alpert ) whereby he explains his spiritual endeavors in India. How & why  a Harvard educated successful psychologist (Ram Dass) turned into a  Yogi, is something surely interesting to read.

I hope you find these books worth reading.

Thank you & Namaste !
