“Reading a book by someone you respect allows some of their brilliance to rub off on you.”

-Robin Sharma

A yogi is anyone who follows the yogic path. This path is the process of waking up the inner self so that it remembers who it really is: a drop of the divine. It is a long and arduous path but we are given a lot of help along the way. Much of this guidance comes in the form of inspiring books written by people who are further along the path than we are. These books give us the benefit of these people’s experience and also inspire us to continue on the path when the going gets tough.  It’s a bit like tuning a guitar.When a guitar is out of tune, it sounds awful. In order to get it back in tune, you need to find a “reference pitch” from another source like a piano, another guitar or a tuning fork. We are the same. When we get bogged down by the demands of daily life, we need another source that is in harmony with itself to help get us back in tune with our inner selves.

Below is a list of the most inspiring books I have ever read. I read from one of these books every day. This is called Satsang in Sanskrit or spending time in the company of uplifting people. Of course it would be better to meet these people in person. But reading their books is the next best thing and hopefully allows some of their brilliance to rub off on me. The titles highlighted in bold are the ones I read the most often and are the ones I would grab first if my house went on fire!
