Book Review: A Million Thoughts: Learn All About Meditation from the Himalayan Mystic

A Million Thoughts: Learn All About Meditation from the Himalayan Mystic
By Om Swami
Genre: Spirituality, Meditation, Health

Each one of us is a master of infinite possibilities at a universal scale. Through meditation we experience our own magnificence, our true potential.

Drawing on his experience of thousands of hours of earnest and strenuous meditation, renowned sage Om Swami pens a guide to help channelize unruly, futile thoughts and turn them into productive energy.

A Million Thoughts shows how to meditate correctly, how to practice various styles of meditation and how to become proficient in the many yogic practices that will lead to the final stage of samadhi — the ultimate spiritual self-fulfilment.

Brimming with firsthand experiences and references from ancient and classical texts, this brilliant book is most suited for the modern reader who wishes to master the art of meditation.

My Review

A Million Thoughts is a beautiful collaboration about meditation, stories, and the personal journey of Om Swami. I believe things and people come into your life when you need them most, and I feel that way about A Million Thoughts. Om Swami writes in an easy-to-follow way and his voice comes through as humble and loving. I was in awe over how in-depth he went into the practice of meditation. I no longer felt overwhelmed with the idea. It seems attainable after reading this piece of work. I am grateful for Om Swami's insight and look forward to reading more of his books. Five stars!
