2.0 out of 5 starsLow quality Pages and very poor Printing.
4 April 2018
Even after purchasing from an Amazon fulfilled seller which is GS RETAILER... The book seems to be a copy... Very low quality printing, low quality pages and even the cover pages are of poor quality... Ordered for my roommate's birthday... But very disappointed... :( Bharosa uth gya "amazon fulfilled" se bhi.
One of most clear book on most ambiguous concept of mind. After reading it you can be able to control your mind instead being controlled by it. Best book for people who starts their day in the hope of a better life but some sudden thoughts and things made them worse. Books us in question and answer form. After reading it you will be a clear person. I bought it just for 180rs. Paper quality average but not misprints that is a good thing.
If you need to read one book in your entire life, it would be the "Power of Now". Though I have read several spiritual classics and seem to understand the teachings it convey, I realized that I did not gather the underlying message portrayed by those great spiritual texts. It is Eckhart's wisdom showed me what those spiritual texts are actually conveying.
The first radical concept, we live only in the Now, takes time to understand, intellectually, we may seem to understand but to put it in practice it is a different story. We constantly live in the past or future but never in the present. In fact we never really live in the present moment. Eckhart in a very crystal clear manner portrays how we live in a dysfunctional way and opens our eyes to the Present. In the present moment we find our salvation and not anywhere else. If we practice what is presented in the book, we will be giving a present to ourselves.
Do buy and read it. I have recommended this book to all my friends.
The only book that took me 2 months to read and digest. Each single line of each paragraph is so much meaningful that you thank God for each word of this book. Absolutely binding your attention and guides you to enlightenment. A must read for those that do want right guidance to achieve enlightenment. I am truely grateful for having got a chance to read this book. Thank you God!
very good book for spiritual progress.. the book explains how we are the slave of our minds and are always thinking about the past or future which inturn causes us anxiety and fear, stress... the author explains how to except the now and live in the now !!!
I came to know about this book when I was reading The Secret by Rhonda Byrne.I was extremely delighted by reading this magnificient work.It made me realign the way I look at situations and treating people,life.Truly a great work to be read in a lifetime.
The concept of spirituality is beautifully explained. But I find Indian literature better for explanation of spirituality but western people simply can't understand it. But the author referred to teachings in Bhagavad-Gita for his explanation and tried to make us understand the real essence of it. It is a must read book to understand spirituality in a simple way.
I was looking for the best mindfulness book. But undoubtedly "Power of Now" is the best mindfulness book. Eckhart has not mentioned the word mindfulness, because mindfulness is the state of mind without thoughts. Great book. The book greatly describes the meaning of TRUE HAPPINESS.
Excellent book. Amongst the best I have read. Can transform the way you live...for the better. The lucidity and depth with which the book explains concepts is amazing. His key message is that Time and Mind are same. Mind forces us to think of past (with regret) and future (with anxiety). Instead live in the present moment, the NOW moment , to be in bliss and consciousness. This is the nutshell, but he explains many other concepts.
I very highly recommend this book to everyone. It’s amongst the best books out there.
It’s life changing. Literally. I came to know about this book while ready Ten to Zen. I can’t ready more than 1 page a day or say sometimes just few lines. Because there is so much of new knowledge and perspectives to think about life.. it got me out of depression and it gives me a boost every day.. and I’m only on page 76
