Top 10 Books for Spiritual Growth


What does the title mean? To me personally, it means books that help you to celebrate and come into increased contact with your internal spiritual life and unique inner voice. These books have helped many others to find meaning and through it self-transcendence. They come from different religions, from Gnostic Christian, Buddhist, Hindu and Taoism, and yet all point to the same thing and attempt to help the reader on their own internal spiritual journey. Some books are easy to read, and others are a lot tougher, but definitely worth the effort! Click on each for a link through to where you can find out more about them. Once again, I am not being paid to provide these links. If you are wondering where to start, I would suggest The Alchemist or Siddhartha.
