Eknath easwaran, professor of literature turned spiritual teacher, who gave passage meditation to the world, is one of the most popular writers on spirituality. here, an overview of his life history and inspiring teachings
Passage meditationPassage meditation is a modern meditation technique rooted in classic methods found in most spiritual traditions including a long-standing tradition of Hinduism dating back to Vedic times; it involves silent, focussed repetition of memorised selections (passages) from scriptures of the world and writings of great mystics. According to Easwaran, the principle of meditating on inspired passages, is that the words sink deep into our minds, eventually transforming 'character, conduct, and consciousness.'
Passage meditation does not require adherence to any particular religion or belief. For example, a minister in the Roman Catholic diocese of Oakland, and a registered yoga teacher, describes how passage meditation has served her as a tool for personal transformation. As another example, a group of recovering alcoholics has produced a brochure explaining how passage meditation is a practical method that can be used as part of a 12-step programme.
Generally, meditation methods may reduce stress, and research published in 2006 in the Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology provided evidence that suggests that passage meditation reduces stress and may enhance mental health. >
