Spiritual concerns are central to Hispanic life in this country, and here are some titles that could expand your collection beyond the obvious. Casteneda, here represented by a compilation of quotes from his major works, is of course ever-popular. While Yogananda's work may not seem as natural a fit, his autobiography has in fact been available in Latin America since the 1950s, where it is considered a classic of spiritual literature.
