|The Conference of the Birds||Iranian/Persian story: “Enchanting description of a wild menagerie of birds on a pilgrimage to the throne of God, sharing tales and dialogues that express the elusive and wondrous nuances of Sufi mysticism. Full of extravagant whimsy, colorful and amusing, even–or especially–at its deepest. A kind of Sufi version of The Canterbury Tales…” –The Seeker’s Handbook by John Lash|
|The Zen Teachings of Bodhidarma||More Zen.|
|The Zen Teachings of Huang Po||MORE ZEN!|

|The Upanishads||More-or-less the Bible of Hinduism.|
|The Bhagavad Gita||The most popular excerpt of the “world’s longest poem” from India.|
