While Zen ..da da da…is so light on your mind ….full of meanings you should glean on your own (so zen like).  The second one is a detailed analysis of Karma and its many ways.  Its basically the teaching of Swami Vimalananda – a famous Aghori.

The other two books which I was reading – ‘Learn to Live’ – Part I and II …are almost over.  I didn’t like some parts of the book …as the esteemed Swami takes a very political stance is some parts.  While I have great respect for the Swamis of the Ramakrishna movement ……..I really don’t feel that they have to take on the position of saviours of Hinduism.   Other parts of the book sound like he makes a hard attempt at convincing the readers about certain percepts of belief.
