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.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By M. A. Ramos VINE VOICE on December 11, 2006
Format: 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.
