The Best Of Speaking Tree (Volume 2) Book Review

The Best of Speaking Tree presents a selection of articles from the column, ‘The Speaking Tree’ that appears daily on the edit page of The Times of India newspaper. Ever since the column began in 1995, its open, non-denominational approach to spirituality has been widely read and appreciated.

For me personally, This is ‘My Dear side of spirituality’. The Best of Speaking Tree keeps me sane in this insane world. I read it over and over again when I go deep, lost in thoughts about God and myself and Life. The book pulls me out of my loneliness and makes me think about a situation in a more philosophical way.  The book is more than a Book. It makes you reflect on life and God and relationships.




It has some wonderful insights into the Topics (book contents) Knowledge and Awareness, Perspective, Prayer and Worship, Cause and Effect and so on. The Best of Speaking Tree is available in many volumes. The present one is Volume 2. It is written in article sort of way. All the articles are written by different Authors. Its written by mostly Spiritual Guru s or it mentions them. What I love in the book is the mention of different Gods in different chapters. So that we all can relate to our own God. Thus, God is One. They are written in Inspirational or Philosophical Way.

The One Chapter which I must mention, which is very close to my Heart. Its called Action Spurred by Heartfelt Prayer by Ajit Singh. I would like to mention the lines close to me, in Author’s Words.

“This agrees marvelously with what Mother Teresa says “Our words are useless unless they come from the bottom of the heart. Prayer to be fruitful, must come from the heart and must be able to touch the Heart of God”. Mother Teresa, for whom everything starts from prayer born of the silence of the heart defines prayer as simply talking to God. She enjoins us to speak to God from the fullness of our heart and to keep our hearts silent, empty, expectant and motionless to receive God’s voice because God speaks only in the silence of your hearts. ”



In the end, I would like to say, that The Speaking Tree is a special book and its a Must read for everyone with a spiritual streak. For those without it, will feel it and maybe start believing in the Lord. I thoroughly enjoyed Volume 2. Its the one with the green cover. Articles in this column are essentially timeless and can be read anytime, anywhere, since they talk of issues and ideas that evoke our higher consciousness and so are eternal.


The Best of  Speaking Tree (Volume 2) will steal your heart as it does mine. It will make you deep and connected to your inner self. I would rate it a 4.5 Starts out of 5 Stars.
