    Product Description

    In this inspiring new book, Wisdom of the Ages, bestselling author Dr. Wayne W. Dyer poses the question:

    “What do our ancestral scholars, whom we consider the wisest and most spiritually advanced, have to say to us today?”

    The answer lies in this powerful collection of writings, poems, and sayings by some of the greatest thinkers of the past twenty-five centuries. In succinct original essays, Dyer sets out to explain the meaning and context of each piece of wisdom, and, most important, to explain how we can actively apply these teachings to our modern lives.

    From sixty ancestral masters – Buddha, Michelangelo, Rumi, Whitman, Jesus, Emily Dickinson, and Emerson, among others – here are treasured passages on a variety of subjects, including solitude, time, and passion. Among the contributions are words on inspiration from Pantanjali (c. 1st to 3rd century B.C.), author of the Hindu classic, Yoga Sutras; teaching about the power of the prayer from 13-century monk St. Francis of Assisi; and thoughts about the importance of action written by Mother Teresa.

    The voices collected here cut across a wide range of historical eras and cultures, yet they communicate universal truths about the human experience. Wisdom of the Ages provides us with a marvelous dual opportunity: to receive guidance from our great ancestors and to recognize our own potential for greatness.
