Open Heart, Open Mind: Practical Lessons in Loving Your Life


Open Heart, Open Mind: Practical Lessons in Loving Your Life


by Swami Chetanananda

Reading Open Heart, Open Mind is like re-discovering what we once knew. If we could be quiet and listen, our heart of hearts could explain the logic of the love. In our pursuit of love and happiness, we come to know and experience true love and learn how to live from the state of love. 

This book is based on informal discussions, public talks, and retreats given by Swami Chetanananda during the 1970s and early 80s.  It was previously published as the "The Logic of Love."

"Open Heart, Open Mind" is guaranteed to aid in all struggles one faces in life and relationships. [It] teaches the reader to draw from our own creative energy to transform our state of being." --Equal Time
