Passage meditation was developed by Eknath Easwaran (1910–1999), who is respected around the world as an authentic guide to timeless wisdom. His translations of The Bhagavad Gita, The Upanishads, and The Dhammapada are the top English translations of these spiritual classics which universities and the general public are choosing. Over 1.5 million copies of his 35 books are in print. His 1961 class on the "theory and benefits of meditation" at UC Berkeley is believed to be the first accredited course on meditation at any Western university. For more information about Eknakth Easwaran and the Blue Mountain Center for Meditation see their website.
People all over the world practice passage meditation, including people of different religions, cultural and social backgrounds. Our community represents the full spectrum of religious and spiritual beliefs imaginable, including those identifying as agnostic and atheist.
