Based on Easwaran's well-regarded book, this recorded talk unfolds with a calming and deeply rooted wisdom that is obvious in the first few minutes. It's an eloquent lesson on the reasons for meditation, the benefits, and the nature of the resulting fundamental shift in attention from the outer world to one's inner life. Extremely comfortable with his ideas and way of speaking, the author draws on many spiritual and mental health traditions as he surveys the range of contemporary human experience. It's a large lesson, yet there is no obvious compression of ideas. The author's intellectual comfort with his audience makes the program relaxing and practical, rather than esoteric and overreaching.
