Read full description of the books Awakening To The Sacred: Creating a Spiritual Life from Scratch:

Many of us long to connect with something greater than ourselves to experience the sacred in our daily lives, and to enhance our sense of spiritual enlightenment - yet often we don't know where to begin. Now, in Awakening to the Sacred, Lama Surya Das integrates essential Buddhist practices with a variety of other spiritual philosophies, wisdoms and traditions to show how we can create a personalized spiritual practice based on our own individual beliefs, aspirations and needs. Here, as he examines common themes that lie at the heart of any spiritual path, including faith, doubt, love and compassion - and explores rituals such as prayer, yoga and meditation - he provides practical advice on how we can nurture our inner spirit every day of our lives.


With his unique and accessible approach, Surya Das emphasizes that we are all, by nature, spiritual beings and that our lives are naturally filled with sacred moments. Awakening to the Sacred illuminates the natural meditations already present in daily life, and shows how we can use them to awaken our hearts and minds, and progress towards inner peace, happiness and enlightenment.
