THUS SPAKE ZARATHUSTRA will be the first on my list.
THE BROTHERS KARAMAZOV is the second.
Third is THE BOOK OF MIRDAD.
Fourth is JONATHAN LIVINGSTON SEAGULL.
The fifth book is TAO TE CHING by Lao Tzu.
The sixth is THE PARABLES OF CHUANG TZU. He was the most lovable man, and this is the most lovable book.
Seventh is THE SERMON ON THE MOUNT – only THE SERMON ON THE MOUNT not the whole Bible. The whole Bible is just bullshit except THE SERMON ON THE MOUNT.
Eighth... is my numbering right? That’s good. Then you can feel that I am still in my insanity.
The eighth, BHAGAVADGITA – the divine song of Krishna. By the way ’Christ’ is only a
mispronunciation of ’Krishna’ just as ’Zoroaster’ is of ’Zarathustra’. ’Krishna’ means the highest state of consciousness, and the song of Krishna, the BHAGAVADGITA, reaches to the ultimate heights of being.
Ninth, GITANJALI. It means ’an offering of songs’. It is the work of Rabindranath Tagore, for which he got the Nobel prize.
And the tenth is the songs of Milarepa – THE ONE THOUSAND SONGS OF MILAREPA – that’s how it is called in Tibetan."
