Life today can feel so fragmented. Often we face enormous pressures both on the work front and at home. Irritable and drained at the end of a long day, we wonder what it is all about. But if we look at our choices through Easwaran's eyes, it's surprising how quickly we begin to discover patience, peace, and meaning. Easwaran shows that the key to finding peace isn't necessarily changing how we work or what we do, but how we think. ''We may not realize it,'' he writes, '' but it is the mind, not external events, that drives our constant sense of urgency and restlessness.'' When we're tired, we need a book we'll enjoy. Easwaran is a master storyteller, and Take Your Time has many entertaining, all-too-recognizable everyday anecdotes to make us smile as we read his insights.

"Every moment is a doorway to meaning, purpose, and joy. The key is an unhurried mind."About the Author:
Eknath Easwaran (1910 – 1999) was born in South India and grew up in the historic years when Gandhi was leading India nonviolently to freedom from the British Empire. As a young man, Easwaran met Gandhi, and the experience left a lasting impression.
Following graduate studies, Easwaran joined the teaching profession and later became head of the department of English at the University of Nagpur.
In 1959 he came to the US with the Fulbright exchange program and in 1961 he founded the Blue Mountain Center of Meditation, which carries on his work with publications and retreats.
Easwaran’s translations of the Indian spiritual classics (The Bhagavad Gita, The Upanishads, and The Dhammapada) are all bestsellers in their field. More than 1.5 million copies of his books are in print.
Easwaran lived what he taught, giving him enduring appeal as a teacher and author of deep insight and warmth.
