Favourite Book Recommenations

Recommended Posts

I was hoping I could get a couple awesome book recommendations that deal with Eastern Philosophy/Religion/Spirituality (other awesome books would be good too even if they don't deal with the topics mentioned above).


Some of my favourite books that really inspire me are:

Road to Heaven: Encounters with Chinese Hermits

I love reading this book, I almost always have it with me!!!!


Classics of Buddhism and Zen, Volume 1: The Collected Translations of Thomas Cleary

This whole series is great (as well as the the Taoist series) but I keep this one with me the most because I love reading "minding mind", I still haven't made it all the way through the book though. Thomas Cleary is an amazing translator, I can't believe how much stuff he's done!!!


The Teachings and Practices of the Early Quanzhen Taoist Masters

I borrowed this from the library and skipped around in it a lot but recently bought it and started reading it from the beginning and am enjoying it.


The Secrets of Chinese Meditation: Self-Cultivation by Mind Control As Taught in the Ch'An, Mahayana and Taoist Schools in China

Another book i can read over and over again!


The Art of Living: Vipassana Meditation

My favourite books on Vipassana, I've read this multiple times but it's been a while since the last time I've read it.


Twenty-Five Doors to Meditation: A Handbook for Entering Samadhi

Awesome book on different types of meditation with descriptions and examples.


Opening the Dragon Gate: The Making of a Modern Taoist Wizard

Awesome read!


Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance!!!
