Book Description

December 26, 2001
This anthology collects the most lyrical, passionate, illuminating writings of the Hindu mystical tradition. Andrew Harvey, the popular spiritual scholar and writer, has selected excerpts from ancient and contemporary sources, including extracts from the Bhagavad Gita, the Upanishads, and other classical Hindu texts; the words of such venerable spiritual teachers as Ramakrishna and Ramana Maharshi; and the devotional poetry of Mirabai, Ramprasad, and many others. The scope of this anthology makes it a marvelous introduction to Hindu mystical literature, while the power and beauty of the language will inspire those already familiar with the genre.

Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Another title that digs deeply into one religious tradition is Teachings of the Hindu Mystics, edited by Andrew Harvey. Harvey includes mystical texts from the Vedas, the Upanishads and the devotional classic the Bhagavad Gita, as well as writings of individuals such as Mirabai and Aurobindo. Considering the importance and ubiquity of the mystical element within Hinduism, Harvey has done a fine job assembling a judicious collection.

From Library Journal

Harvey, a British novelist who more recently has become a writer devoted to spiritual topics, has edited this new contribution to Shambhala's long-running "Teachings" series, and this volume is one of the most valuable for the general public yet released. Hindu practice and spirituality remain frustratingly alien and elusive for many Western minds, not least because of the continual overlays of new teachings by recognized masters. Harvey's anthology is historical, and by beginning with the Rig Veda and concluding with the writings of Aurobindo (d. 1950), he goes far toward establishing the essence of Hinduism itself and the ebbs and flows in its teaching over hundreds of years. Harvey's introduction is both learned and prophetic in its stance. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Eternal Way, December 11, 2006
This review is from: Teachings of the Hindu Mystics (Paperback)
What we call Hindu, the Hindu's call 'The Enternal Way'. For Hindu was a geographical location, not a religion. Over time those outside their religion began to associate the term with a religion.

Andrew Harvey is the editor of this book and compiles an anthology of Hindu poems, meditations, and philosophical texts emphasizing Tantric tradition and the yoga of devotion.

Included are writings of Mirabai (circa 1498-1546), Ramprasad (1718-1775), and Aurobindo (1872-1950) and excerpts from their sacred scriptures. This book is a good introduction to start your studies on the teachings of the Hindu Mystics.
