Here is a list of spiritual books that I recommend.

Please note that I have not read all these books – some of them are still on my reading queue. The ones I haven’t yet read  I am recommending based on my research, or on the recommendation of trusted people, or because I know and trust the work of the author.

Unfortunately I don’t have the time to write detailed reviews on all of these. So, at this point, I’m simply classifying the recommended books by putting a B for books intended for beginners in that subject, I for intermediate, and A for advanced.

I intend to create similar pages for the other two main topics of this site (Meditation and Personal Growth).

If you read any of these, please leave a comment or email me sharing your thoughts.

    Are this all affliate links.

    • Yes, they are. As I mentioned in my about page (, this is one of the ways I sustain my work.
      For you as a reader it makes no difference, as the price of the book is the same.
