Great Quotes from Eckhart Tolle - THE POWER OF NOW & OTHER BEAUTIFUL QUOTES = 10-04-2012

Great Quotes


Eckhart Tolle

Eckhart Tolle – is an enigmatic Spiritualist of our times. He  is  German-born  and Canadian resident, and is best known as the author of  “The Power of Now” and  “A New Earth”

In 2011, he was listed by the Watkins Review as the most spiritually influential person in the world.

The Power of Now and A New Earth sold an estimated three million and five million copies respectively in North America by 2009.

In 2008, approximately 35 million people participated in a series of 10 live webinars with Tolle and television talk show presenter Oprah Winfrey.

Tolle's teachings has been influenced by a wide range of spiritual teachings.

The Indian, who is exposed to the Gita and the Vedanta (of Upanishads) will find his teachings – as if they are the outpourings of a Master grounded in the Upanishads and the Gita.

His teachings, as the quotes below clearly indicate, are centered around “THIS MOMENT”. If we understand and live this moment, life is a joy. If not, suffering finds a way into it. 

I have selected just a few Quotes – which are so close to the Indian spiritual thought, both contemporary and ancient – that we will experience the presence – well, you will see what it is in a few moments – and get transported into it – from the past and future, wherever, your mind is wandering and taking you along. 

Once you are in the presence – life is transformed instantly.
