At the 1893 Parliament of Religions in Chicago, Swami Vivekananda transformed Western thinking. He showed that, far from being an exotic novelty, Hinduism is an important, legitimate spiritual tradition with valuable lessons for the West. Pathways to Joy is a selection of 108 of his sacred teachings on Vedanta philosophy. In accessible and powerful prose, Vivekananda illuminates the four classical yoga paths — karma, bhakti, raja, and jnana — for the different natures of humankind. The messages focus on the oneness of existence; the divinity of the soul; the truth in all religions; and unifying with the Divine within. Invaluable and inspiring, the selections also explore karma, maya, rebirth, and other great revelations of Hinduism.


“No library of Yoga study would be complete without the revered teachings of Swami Vivekananda, and no edition of his teachings brings them to us more beautifully than Dave DeLuca’s Pathways to Joy.”
Midwest Book Review

“Dave DeLuca has done a wonderful service by compiling Swami Vivekananda’s greatest teachings on classical yoga into one book. It is a compendium of Vedanta, its selections in lucid prose most suitable for modern seekers. My hearty congratulations!”
— Swami Smaranananda, vice president, Ramakrishna Math and Mission, Kolkata, India

“Swami Vivekananda was a spiritual pioneer, the first major figure to bring the priceless wisdom of ancient India to the modern world. In this age of materialism, we ignore his message at our peril. Dave DeLuca has done us all a service with this accessible and attractive anthology of Swamiji's writings.”
— Michael Nagler, author of The Search for a Nonviolent Future

“Dave DeLuca recently reintroduced the spiritual treasures of Swami Vivekananda’s Vedanta teachings to the Western world in a new and inspired collection from Swamiji’s writings and lectures. No sincere student of Yoga should be without Vivekananda’s great wisdom and guidance, and for this reason I highly recommend Pathways to Joy.”
— Swami Swahananda, senior minister, Ramakrishna Order and Vedanta Society of Southern California

“Intelligently organized, thoughtfully presented, Pathways to Joy is an excellent introduction to the writings of Swami Vivekananda.”
— Pravrajika Vrajaprana, author of Vedanta: A Simple Introduction

“I highly recommend this beautiful collection of Vivekananda’s revered writings as a vital addition to any spiritual library.”
India Journal

“Dave DeLuca’s book Pathways to Joy is a brilliant, bridge-building work that allows New Thought readers to easily understand and explore the original message of Oneness from the East.”
— Reverend Edward Viljoen, pastor, Center for Spiritual Living, Santa Rosa, California
