Mylon Trading: Spiritual Book Haven

I love reading spiritual books. But in Malaysia, such books are hard to come by. Especially the ones from India. You can never find it in MPH or Borders. There’s this shop in Brickfields which I have been going to the past 6 years. It’s called Mylon Trading. It’s located just next to the KL Sentral monorail station.

From the outside, you’ll never realise that it is actually a bookstore. They display Indian prayer items, photographs of deities and so on. But if you walk in, you will find a huge array of books which are grouped by topic and spiritual master. You can find amazing books from Ramana Maharshi, Swami Chinmayananda, Swami Sivananda, Theosophy, complete collections of Swami Vivekananda and the Ramakrishna Ashram, Yogananda and so much more.

Books are reasonably priced as well. Of course they will be much cheaper in India but adding the shipping cost etc, you can get some books which are cheap and some which are a little bit more expensive.

There’s this uncle whom I’ve known from my first visit. He will always recommend some great titles and reserve books for me. From my last visit, the owner informed me that he had returned to India due to health reasons. Hopefully he will be back soon. I never even got a change to tell him goodbye.



Someday, I hope Saivhes will spend time reading my large collection of spiritual books, most of them purchased from Mylon Trading. Hopefully the owner will continue to provide me some nice discounts like this uncle did.
