This is a valuable new guide to the practice of Vedanta and inner yoga: a priceless collection of spiritual instructions from Swami Ashokananda (1893-1969) to his close American disciples. Vedanta's eternal truths come alive in Swami Ashokananda's down-to-earth words of encouragement and advice. More than eight hundred passages for contemplation shed light on the spiritual path. Early chapters such as "The Agony of Conflict" and "The Secrets of Suffering" show how to cope with common problems; later chapters such as "Be Calm" and "Meditate" guide readers toward a higher state of consciousness. "Shafts of Light" illumines the heart of spiritual practice-its teachings can help seekers from any tradition enjoy a deeper spiritual life."Swami Ashokananda was a brilliant and accomplished spiritual teacher in the West."-HUSTON SMITH "Swami Ashokananda's words ignited in his listeners the longing for realization on their own."-AMERICAN VEDANTIST"Swami Ashokananda brought courage and strength to hundreds of lives."-THE BEACON
