The Buddha

What is the best book you could recommend?

15 posts in this topic

What was that book that changed it all? I would enjoy this topic to be of very high quality, revealing those books of immense wisdom across human history. I want to devote this summer to reading, from the Bhagavad-gītā, to the Diamond Sutra, Autobiography Of A Yogi or Yoga Vasistha... To list some. Having the opportunity of being part of this forum I would really enjoy listening to your advice. There is no requirement about any specific topic whatsoever, the only requirement is mastery and supreme quality.

Power of Now by Eckhar Tolle would be my bible, have reread it a couple of times over the years and there was always something new I had discovered. New earth is great too.


Form is emptiness, emptiness is form.

What you resist, persists.

What Is Life? - Erwin Schrödinger (famous quantum physicist and Vedanta enthusiast)

Tryptamine Palace: 5-MeO-DMT and the Sonoran Desert Toad - James Oroc

Consciousness Is Everything: The Yoga of Kashmir Shaivism - Swami Shankarananda

DMT: The Spirit Molecule - Rick Strassman, M.D.

Why Materialism is Baloney - Bernardo Kastrup (sans the psi stuff)

Being Aware of Being Aware - Rupert Spira

LSD: My Problem Child - Albert Hofmann

...

The DMT and LSD books I got to understand the history and nature of these substances out of interest. They are important cornerstones of modern psychedelic history.

I just have these books to cement my own understanding of my own experiences. Sometimes a person can verbalize something you have experienced or are thinking in a way that allows integration.

The best book is subjective, and depends on where you are in your unique spiritual journey.

For me, before awakening it was The Power of Now (Eckhart Tolle). After awakening, it was the Bhagavad Gita (Eknath Easwaran translation). There are many, many others but these two books are magnificent milestones for me.
