THE POWER OF NOW by Eckart Tolle
This book, although it rehashes many of the ideas of Buddhism and Hinduism, is still refreshingly written and contains some very useful examples of how to achieve peace by resting in the now.
THE TIBETAN BOOK OF LIVING AND DYING by Sogyal Rinpoche
Fascinating overview of what Tibetan Buddhism believes about the stages of living, dying, death, and rebirth (the bardos). In particular, I was moved by the accounts of hospice work and showing the dying love and respect and helping them to deal with their physical endpoint.
MAXIMUM CITY by Suketu Mehta
The definitive non-fiction book about Bombay, superbly written. This together with SHANTARAM by Gregory David Roberts (which I finished 2 months ago) should give you all you the brain food you need to get a handle on Mumbai (and visiting wouldn’t hurt either, of course).
