The Power of Now

I borrowed this book from one of my classmates during my college days. I liked it so much that I did not return it until he asked about it. The book had a great impact on my thinking and way of living. As the author of the book Eckhart Tolle admits that he hasn’t told anything new, it’s true that the book just presents before you the timeless teachings of great masters of past. Eckhart has explained the subject in a very lucid manner.


Eckhart Tolle suggests that before and after his awakening he got mostly influenced by the teachings of  Meister Eckhart , I AM THAT and other esoteric teachings. He adopted the name Eckhart because of the appreciation he had for the tachings of Meister Eckhart.


After reading this book I read Jiddu Krishnamurty’s books. They also addressed the problems related to mind and time. The difference is that Krishnamurty’s approach is abstruse subtle reasoning whereas Eckhart makes things much more easier for you by focusing on the present moment. The Power of Now is indeed one of the best books I have ever read. If you are a spiritual seeker or like reading self-improvement books; you should read this book.
