About the Author
Eknath Easwaran was a successful writer, lecturer and professor of English literature when he came to the US on the Fulbright exchange program in 1959. Two years later he founded the Blue Mountain Center of Meditation in Berkeley, California. At the University of California, Berkeley, he taught what was probably the first credit course on the theory and practice of mediation to be offered at a major university in the West.
On October 26, respected meditation guru and philosopher Shri Eknath Eswaran passed away at age 88. He touched the hearts and souls of thousands of people of all races, nationalities and religions through his meditation retreats at Blue Mountain Center, books, tapes and lectures. His academic course on meditation at the University of California at Berkeley was the first offered in any US university. He died of heart failure at his California ashram with his wife and close devotees at his side. Swami Chidananda of Chinmaya Mission said, "He has left behind a legacy of highly nourishing spiritual literature that is like a garden so fragrant with flowers of many hues. I pay homage to this master of our times."
