Modern Spiritual Classics
A few spiritual books have had more influence on people to turn them Godward than tons and tons of philosophical works and hoary scriptures.I give a list of a few books which ,I think, should be read by all educated persons in India and by those foreigners who are attracted to Indian spiritual paths.Many of these books are short and written in easy style.Of course, I am giving the English translations of books originally written in other languages.By 'modern' I mean those books written in 19th and 20th century---an arbitrary selection indeed!
