Today’s Review: Don’t Think of A Monkey: And Other Stories My Guru Told Me by Swami Prakashananda

“This book was given to me as gift shortly after my mother passed away, and over a decade later, I still crack it open (notice the wear-and-tear). Full of motivational and lesson-filled stories you can read over and over again, this book has something for every mood and situation.”

– Kwapi Vengesayi

This book was given to me as gift shortly after my mother passed away, and over a decade later, I still crack it open (notice the wear-and-tear). Full of motivational and lesson-filled stories you can read over and over again, this book has something for every mood and situation.

There are stories in this book I revisit often in best and worst of times, and stories I haven’t even encountered yet. That is the magic of this book and anthologies in general when they are curated well. They offer engaging content with unique narratives and varied pacing, diverse genres and a wide variety themes that leave the reader feeling nourished every time they read something from the collection, and always eager to return for more.

Book Description

A collection of 108 stories, some of which have been retold for thousands of years by spiritual teachers, to help convey certain spiritual truths, as well as the follies and antics of humanity. These are often conveyed in a humorous medium. Most of the stories come from the Hindu tradition but there are also some Christian and Sufi stories as well.

Sincerely,
Kwapi
