  7. Remember, Be Here Now by Ram Dass (Paperback - Oct 12, 1978) - old but good; better after you have read Tolle's A New Earth
  8. Grist for the Mill: The Mellow Drama, Dying: An Opportunity for Awakening, Freeing the Mind, Karmuppance, God & Beyond by Ram Dass and Stephen Levine (Paperback - Mar 1988) - excellent companion to more recent stuff such as The Power of Now or A New Earth
  9. Autobiography of a Yogi: with bonus CD by Paramahansa Yogananda (Paperback - Jun 1, 2006) - it is better to read this only after you have experienced turiya (transcendental consciousness) yourself.
  10. Relearning to See: Improve Your Eyesight -- Naturally! by Thomas R. Quackenbush (Paperback - Jan 24, 2000) - You can't learn the proper Bates Methods from this or any book, however.
  11. Better Eyesight: The Complete Magazines of William H. Bates by Thomas R. Quackenbush (Paperback - Dec 14, 2000) - If you want to get deep into natural vision improvement.
  12. Life and Teaching of the Masters of the Far East (6 Volume Set) [BOX SET] (Paperback) by Baird T. Spalding (Author)
  13. Anything by Richard Bach

  19. Freedom from Disease: How to Control Free Radicals, a Major Cause of Aging and Disease by Hari Sharma (Paperback - Oct 1993) - older, but still good (if you can get past the TM sales pitch). I don't recommend the products hyped in the book, but the concepts are important to understand.
  20. Genetic Engineering: The Hazards, Vedic Engineering: The Solutions -  everyone should be aware of this issue
  21. Way of the Peaceful Warrior: A Book That Changes Lives by Dan Millman (Paperback - April 13, 2006)
