Following on the trilogy’s Books I & II (Condor’s Eye and Kismet), our protagonists’ life sagas continue in Maya. Lifetime adventures range from the Stone-age to the Romans in occupied Palestine, from Tibet to Peru and Europe, and even into the future. They show how karmic connections between these incarnations are threaded like cords binding past events into aspects of subsequent lives as balancing and learning experiences. But their relentless questions about the mechanism of life remained unanswered through eras of ignorance and religious dominance prescribing those thoughts people were permitted. In Part II, after lifetimes spanning thousands of years, Maya finally reaches the present. Condor’s Eye and Laughing Wind have endured so much, lived many different experiences, and still do not have the answers to their questions. In contemporary times, humankind is undergoing a metamorphosis of their understanding. People are permitted to think, debate, share knowledge openly and reconsider their oldest beliefs. As the protagonists discover, it’s a powerful time to be alive with many new insights and understandings finally providing various answers to their centuries of ignorance. Complementing each chapter is additional background material prepared by the author in his website www.feyslamentation.com.

Transnational Matrilineage offers a novel approach to Asian American literature, including texts by Maxine Hong Kingston, Amy Tan, Mei Ng, Nora Okja Keller and Vineeta Vijayaragahavan, with particular attention to depictions of transnational solidarity (that is the sense of community between women of different cultures or cultural affiliations) between Asian-born mothers and their American-born daughters. While focusing on the mother-daughter conflicts these texts portray, this book also contributes to ongoing debates in transnational feminism by scrutinizing the representation of Asia in Asian American literature.

A revelatory biography of the first Black woman to be elected Vice President of the United States. In Kamala’s Way, longtime Los Angeles Times reporter Dan Morain charts how the daughter of two immigrants born in segregated California became one of this country’s most effective power players. He takes readers through Harris’s years in the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office, explores her audacious embrace of the little-known Barack Obama, and shows the sharp elbows she deployed to make it to the US Senate. He analyses her failure as a presidential candidate and the behind-the-scenes campaign she waged to land the Vice President spot. And along the way, Morain paints a vivid picture of her family, values and priorities, as well as the missteps, risks and bold moves she’s made on her way to the top. Kamala’s Way is a comprehensive account of the Vice President-Elect and her history-making career.

Stories of Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva, Ganesha and Krishna and from the Ramayana and Mahabharata King Kubera was the greediest man in the world. Hated and feared by many, he schemed to win the love of the beautiful goddess Parvati... but learned an important lesson when he invited her elephantheaded son Ganesha to lunch one day... THUS GOES ONE OF THE MANY DELIGHTFUL TALES in this decidedly grownup book of traditional Indian stories, retold for the modern reader. Author Kamla K. Kapur’s connection to these agoold stories is the reverent yet individualistic kind we might expect from someone whose introduction is of her hometown, where naked, dreadlocked holy men speed about on motorbikes. To collect these stories, Kapur relied on ancient sacred texts, modern scholarship and chance encounters with interesting people who just happened to know a really good one about the time that Vishnu sank into the ocean, was incarnated as a pig, and had a really wonderful time. Like myths around the world, these are teaching stories that offer both a window into a fascinating culture that has existed for thousands of years, and a code for living that can be applied to the modern world. Whether you read these engaging tales for the monkey gods, talking toads and beautiful maidens in distress... or for an Eastern viewpoint on the eternal questions surrounding love, friendship, faith, happiness and war, this is a book that bears repeated reading and is a fine addition to any collection.

Four ground-breaking plays that explore the complex relationship between England and India over more than a century, weaving together personal and political narratives. The Waiting Room: Priya Banerjee is dead, but her life is far from over. She has just three days left to roam the earth before she can go on to the 'Waiting Room' of spirits. As she reluctantly watches and listens to her family, Priya is guided by a droll and increasingly impatient immortal soul in the guise of her Bollywood idol, Dilip Kumar. Great Expectations: Relocating Pip's extraordinary journey to nineteenth-century India, this coming-of-age story, evoking some of Dickens' most colourful characters, is faithful to the period of the book and the richness of Dickens' language – a vivid theatrical retelling of a universally loved masterpiece. The Empress: It is the Jubilee! Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee, 1887. At Tilbury Docks, Rani and Abdul step ashore after the long voyage from India. One has to battle a society who deems her a second-class citizen, the other forges an astonishing entanglement with the ageing Queen who finds herself enchanted by stories of an India she rules but has never seen. Lions and Tigers: Based on the true story of Tanika Gupta's great uncle and freedom fighter Dinesh Gupta, the play charts the Dinesh's emotional and political awakening as this extraordinary 19-year-old pits himself against the British Raj. Winner of the James Tait Black Award in 2018.

The Bhagavad Gītā recounts a profound dialogue between Arjuna, a conflicted warrior, and his humble charioteer, who is in fact the Lord Himself. The message Kṛṣṇa delivered on a battlefield more than 5000 years ago is just as relevant today because it awakens the soul to mankind’s true nature and reason for being. His instructions have stood the test of time and provide the knowledge to help us triumph over the obstacles we face in our lives. Paramahamsa Sri Swami Vishwananda’s commentary brings this timeless discourse to life, unravelling it and delivering it straight to the heart of the reader. It is rare when a book has the potential to become a lifelong companion for spiritual seekers, yet the Bhagavad Gītā Essentials is designed to be just that: an essential part of your life. Small enough to carry with you wherever you go, yet profound enough to carry you all the way to God; succinct enough to read in a matter of hours, yet deep enough to contemplate for decades to come.

The Concept Of Bodhicitta In Santideva S Bodhicaryavatara

Author: Francis Brassard
Editor: SUNY Press
ISBN: 9780791445754
File Size: 23,46 MB
Format: PDF, Docs

This book explores an important concept within the Buddhist Mahayana tradition, bodhicitta. This term appears frequently in Sanskrit literature relating to the spiritual practices of the bodhisattva in Mahayana Buddhism and has been variously translated as "thought of enlightenment" or "desire of enlightenment". Francis Brassard offers a contextual analysis of bodhicitta based on the presuppositions underlying the spiritual practice of the bodhisattva. Since the understanding that emerges involves how one ought to view the process of spiritual transformation, this work contributes to Buddhist psychology and soteriology in particular, and to comparative religions in general. The book surveys the various interpretations of the concept of bodhicitta, analyzes its possible functions in the context of the spiritual path of the aspirant to enlightenment, and discusses an understanding of bodhicitta in the context of the Santideva's Bodhicaryavatara.
