Perennial Wisdom Books

There are many thousands of perennial wisdom books and nonduality teachers past and present sharing the teachings of Oneness, Nonduality, Advaita Vendanta, Taoism, and more.

The writings of the sages Nisargadatta, Lao Tzu, Ramana Maharshi, Rumi, the Buddha, Krishnamurti and many other reflect the wordless and incomprehensible and paradoxical message these sages appeared to point towards. These nonduality teachers grokked the paradox of what is seeming to appear and warned against swallowing and endorsing any concepts and words.

Words, oral or written, cannot ever describe what is…what is cannot be comprehended with the human brain. So how do we learn the Truth? It seems some measure of Mystery and Grace seems to peel the untruth from the weary human eye and brain after long investigations into self inquiry reveal what has never not been here, now…as this perfect moment.

Below are the nonduality and perennial wisdom books that were my constant companions on the spiritual path. I still enjoy the aliveness of these readings now.
