About the Author

Deceased


WAYNE DYER Dr. Wayne W. Dyer, affectionately called the "father of motivation" by his fans, is one of the most widely known and respected people in the field of self-empowerment. He became a well-known author with his bestselling book, Your Erroneous Zones, and has gone on to write many other self-help classics. Despite his childhood spent in orphanages and foster homes, Dr. Dyer, who has a doctorate in counseling psychotherapy, has overcome many obstacles to make his dreams come true. Today he spends much of his time showing others how to do the same. When he's not traveling the globe delivering his uplifting message, Wayne is writing from his home in Maui, Hawaii. DEEPAK CHOPRA Deepak Chopra has written more than twenty-five books, which have been translated into thirty-five languages. He is also the author of more than one hundred audio- and videotape series, including five critically acclaimed programs on public television. In 1999 Time magazine selected Dr. Chopra as one of the Top 100 Icons and Heroes of the Century, describing him as "the poet-prophet of alternative medicine." Dr. Chopra currently serves as CEO and founder of The Chopra Center for Well Being in La Jolla, California.

Format: Paperback
I have read several of Tagore's works but nothing has ever touched me as deeply as the lines in these poems about children and their loves. The one on the death of a child is my favorite. I lost my own child with leukemia several years ago and thought the tears had all dried up but these touching words of this great poetic master found some still tender areas. If these poems are so very beautiful in their English translations, I can only guess what they must sound like in the original rhythmic and lyrical Bengali language. Thank you for allowing me to review and recommend this book

My mom read some of these poems to me as a child. When she was dying, I read them to her. She smiled when almost nothing made her smile. And then later in the process, they calmed her when nearly nothing else could calm her. These poems seem almost sacred to me.

This is one of the more exquisite texts of Nobel winner Tagore. The reader shoud be aware, though, that this one is an abridged edition where some of the allegedly more beautiful chapters are missing.

Format: Hardcover
So respected has Bengali poet Rabindranath Tagore's writings and philosophy been that he was the first Easterner to win the Nobel Prize. Though "Gitanjali" and "The Gardener" rank among his most famous works, this little gem is not to be overlooked. Tagore shows a sympathetic understanding of children's feelings and fantasy akin to Robert Louis Stevenson ("A Child's Garden of Verse"), Janusz Korczak ("King Matt" and "When I Am Little Again"), and Federico Garcia Lorca ("The Cricket Sings") in such poems as "The Home" and "Cresent Moon." Tagore's voice is one of patience, empathy, and tenderness.
