The Compassionate Universe
Here, Easwaran describes his search for a way of life that combines inner fulfillment, respect for nature, and effective participation in the world. Then he presents the fruit of that search: a comprehensive program of trusteeship of ourselves and the earth. This is environmentalism as a great adventure, filled with the challenges and rewards of inner growth. ''As trustees,'' he writes, ''we discover that each of us is a unique and essential member of a compassionate universe.''
