Sometimes illumination occurs spontaneously or, as Ram Dass experienced, in a heart-wrenching moment of opening. More commonly, it happens when we polish the mirror of the heart with daily practice--and see beyond the illusion of our transient thoughts and emotions to the vast and luminous landscape of our true nature.

For five decades, Ram Dass has explored the depths of consciousness and love and brought them to life as service to others. With Polishing the Mirror , he gathers together his essential teachings for living in the eternal present, here and now.

Readers will find within these pages a rich combination of perennial wisdom, humor, teaching stories, and detailed guidance on Ram Dass' own spiritual practices, including:

Bhakti Yoga--opening our hearts to unconditional love
* Practices for living, aging, dying, and embracing the natural flow of life
* Karma Yoga--how selfless service can profoundly transform us
* Working with fear and suffering as a path to grace and freedom
* Step-by-step guidance in devotional chant, meditation and mantra practice, and much more
For those new to Ram Dass' teachings, and for those to whom they are old friends, here is this vanguard spiritual explorer's complete guide to discovering who we are and why we are here, and how to become beacons of unconditional love.

I'm only half way through this book and have already been blessed with several heart-wrenching "healing" experiences. Not much that is "new" for me so far but somehow I appear to be more open to truly hearing and applying the wisdom Ram Das shares. May you likewise be blessed.
