This compact volume contains two sutras, The Sutra on the Eight Realizations of Great Beings and its complementary text, The Discourse on Happiness. They explain in practical detail how to progress step-by-step towards the Buddhist ideals of simplicity, generosity, compassion, and enlightenment. The first sutra is comprised of eight essential subjects for meditation that, though simple in form, are profound in content. Reflecting the insights gained by the bodhisattvas in their lifelong practice of compassion and understanding, the realizations help all beings recognize suffering in the world. The second sutra uses more peaceful language and is a gentle reminder of the common human values and endeavors that are often forgotten in daily life, and reminds readers of the happiness derived from simple things. Thanks to Thich Nhat Hanh’s warm, thoughtful commentary and contemporary language, both teachings are unusually approachable and can be read and enjoyed by those new to the art of mindful living.
"From the point of view of human magicians, I think it is best to think of the Enochian magic as an educational tool, adapted to train those who are going through the process of evolution into gods. She focuses a great deal of knowledge in a compact and readily available, and allows students to extend their holdings in any direction to meet their
natures and interests. "- Benjamin Rowe

The Old Book of Ayurveda
Susruta Samhita is a treasure house of knowledge in Ayurveda especially the branch of Salyatantra i.e. the branch of surgery. The information available is vast and spread out, collecting which is an enormous task. Though much information is available, not many standard texts are available in English in Salyatantra. Thus this book is a small endeavor to provide all the information available in Ayurvedic texts as well as brief information of the correlated surgical conditions and operative procedure available in the modern texts. The availability of both Ayurvedic and modern information about each of the condition will make the understanding of the disease an easier process for the students. This presentation in simple English, in points and in accordance to the CCIM syllabus, will surely make the book an attractive prospect for the students of BAMS.

Not in His Image: Gnostic Vision, Sacred Ecology, and the Future of Belief
Print Length: 464 pages
Publisher: Chelsea Green Publishing (November 1, 2006)
Basing much of Not in His Image on the Nag Hammadi and other Gnostic writings, John Lamb Lash explains how a little-known messianic sect propelled itself into a dominant world power, systematically wiping out the great Gnostic spiritual teachers, the Druid priests, and the shamanistic healers of Europe and North Africa. They burned libraries and destroyed temples in an attempt to silence the ancient truth-tellers and keep their own secrets. But as Lash reveals, when the truth is the planet Earth it cannot be hidden or destroyed.
The author offers an examination of the truths hidden deep within the ancient Gnostic sects of Europe. Two thousand years ago the Pagan religion of Gnosticism was one of the world's largest religious belief systems. The Gnostics held a deep reverence for the earth in all its wonder and beauty. In contrast to the teachings of the patriarchal and monotheistic religious traditions, the Gnostic creation mythos was centered upon the compelling story of the Wisdom Goddess Sophia. This knowledge, which offers us new insight into the power of the earth as a vital living being, has been brought forth today as a fundamental part of the Gaia theory. The Gnostics had many beliefs that were considered heretical by the emerging Christian populations of classical Europe. John Lamb Lash acquaints us with their unique perspective on the nature of human experience and the destructive power of the mysterious beings they called the Archons whose dark influence has led to the fear-based, chaotic character of the times in which we live. By assisting us in comprehending the Gnostics vast knowledge of nature, the Earth, and the intimate relationship between the Goddess Sophia, and we who are her creation, he reconnects us with our ancient heritage and offers a sacred path toward the future.
Not in His Image delves deeply into the shadows of ancient Gnostic writings to reconstruct the story early Christians tried to scrub from the pages of history, exploring the richness of the ancient European Pagan spirituality--the Pagan Mysteries, the Great Goddess, Gnosis, the myths of Sophia and Gaia--and chronicles the annihilation of this Pagan European culture at the hands of Christianity.
Meditation within Eternity is a journey into the heart of being spiritual in the modern world. Practical yet provocative, it pushes the limits of what spirituality is conceived to be, more than just relaxation and bits of Zen wisdom, it is the extraordinary yet invisible aspect of the universe we have forgotten how to touch, hear and see.
This guide offers simple methods to gain unlimited spiritual energy, a forgotten resource and why many fail to truly grow spiritually. It also solves the missing link to accessing higher consciousness. It is the natural magnetic sense, or sixth sense, each of us possesses. The universe, reality, is molded by magnetism. We have an organic body, and an electric one. This electric, energy body, is capable of tapping the electromagnetic nature of reality. Following simple techniques and practical advice you will learn how it is possible to tap into the source code of reality.
Meditation within Eternity provides practical, short meditation techniques for real spiritual growth. It serves a humble purpose – to give you the ability to experience spiritual awakening for yourself.
Dispelling Wetiko: Breaking the curse of evil
There is a contagious psychospiritual disease of the soul, a parasite of the mind, that is currently being acted out en masse on the world stage via a collective psychosis of titanic proportions. This mind-virus─which Native Americans have called “wetiko”─covertly operates through the unconscious blind spots in the human psyche, rendering people oblivious to their own madness and compelling them to act against their own best interests. An inner cancer of the soul, wetiko flavors and manages our perceptions by stealth and subterfuge so as to act itself out through us while simultaneously hiding itself from being seen. Not constrained by the conventional laws of third-dimensional space and time, this ‘bug’ in the system deceives us by working with the intrinsic projective tendencies of our mind so as to appear external to and other than ourselves, utilizing the seemingly outside world as the canvas for its full-bodied revelation of itself. Wetiko nonlocally in-forms, gives shape to and configures events in the world so as to synchronistically express itself, which is to say that just like in a dream, events in the outer world are symbolically reflecting a condition deep within the psyche of humanity. Drawing on insights from Jungian psychology, shamanism, alchemy, spiritual wisdom traditions, and personal experience, author Paul Levy shows us that hidden within the venom of wetiko is a revelation as well as its own antidote, which once recognized can help us wake up and bring sanity back to our society. How wetiko manifests─will it destroy our species, or will it catalyze a deeper process of global awakening?─depends upon recognizing what it is revealing to us about ourselves.
Forward by Catherine Austin Fitts
many rave reviews on amazon, here are a couple:
"Paul Levy's Dispelling Wetiko is among the very best books on the nature of evil that I have ever read, and because it offers a workable way out of the universal psychosis that native peoples call Wetiko, possibly the most important on the subject that I have had the pleasure of adding to my library. A real treasure."
"This book brilliantly exposes how the very roots of the madness that is threatening life on earth are ultimately to be found within our own psyche. I love that Paul is taking seriously the profound implications of what it means that all of us are living in a mass, shared dream. His startlingly clear premise challenges me to reflect upon both the world and myself in radically mind-altering ways. Something important is coming through his imagination-filled musings; his visionary insight into the intrinsic genius of our species feels inspired by a truly creative, compassionate, and enlivening spirit. I always look forward to reading Paul's work; it stimulates me to greater heights of lucidity, disturbs me enough to awaken me out of my complacency, and encourages me to fly on the wings of the creative imagination. The world would be a better place if everyone read this book. His vision is a royal gift for all of us. It makes me want to sing. Bravo!"

The Way of Complete Perfection: A Quanzhen Daoist Anthology
Louis Komjathy 康思奇, Ph.D.
Assistant Professor of Theology and Religious Studies
University of San Diego
An anthology of English translations of primary texts of the Quanzhen (Complete Perfection) school of Daoism.
Originating about 1163 CE, Quanzhen (Complete Perfection) Daoism is one of the most important Daoist movements in Chinese history. It remains the dominant form of monastic Daoism in the modern world, especially in its Longmen (Dragon Gate) lineage. This landmark anthology provides complete or partial translations of twenty-one Quanzhen texts. Most have never been translated or even discussed in scholarly literature. Louis Komjathy gives particular attention to work completed by the Quanzhen movement’s founder, Wang Chongyang (1113–1170 CE), and his first generation disciples. Translations include representative works from every major genre of Quanzhen literature, from poetry and discourse records to didactic texts, commentaries, and hagiographies. Three monastic manuals from the late medieval and late imperial periods of Quanzhen history are also included. An introduction to Quanzhen Daoism begins the work, and each chapter provides discussions of the history and topics relevant to each translation.
“This is the first and only comprehensive analysis and translation of key sc

This new compilation of teachings by Tarthang Tulku features beautiful design, figure photography, original art details, and illustrated stories. It addresses all aspects of meditation: what it is, the attitudes that help us benefit from it, and how to establish and sustain a satisfying practice. This is an unusually practical and straight-forward introduction to basic principles of meditation, the nature of mind, and the importance of taking responsibility for our attitudes and emotions.
About the Author:
Tarthang Tulku Rinpoche (དར་ཐན་སྤྲུལ་སྐུ་རིན་པོ་ཆེ dar-than sprul-sku rin-po-che) is a Tibetan teacher ("lama") in the Nyingma ("old translation") tradition. Having received a complete Buddhist education in pre-diaspora Tibet, he taught philosophy at Sanskrit University in India from 1962 to 1968, and emigrated to America in 1969, where he settled in Berkeley, CA. He is often credited as having introduced the Tibetan medicine practice of Kum Nye (སྐུ་མཉེ sku mnye་, "subtle-body massage") to the West.
Ayurveda is an age-old medical system that was formulated over 5,000 years ago. Documented in the Vedas, the ancient Hindu sacred texts of India, it is a complete wellness regimen with ultimate spiritual goals. Ayurveda provides a detailed analysis of India's four healing systems—Ayurveda, Unani, Siddha and Tibetan traditional medicine. This fascinating book also takes a look at IndiaÆs ancient beauty secrets: essays on hair, facial, hand and foot care are accompanied by more obscure practices such as healing with me

Alkaloids (Basic substances containing cyclic nitrogen, which are insoluble in water but combine with acids to form water soluble salts)

Oleoresins (mixtures of volatile oils and resins)

Antibacterial substances fungi and moulds.
In the current modern therapeutics the majority of the drugs that are used belong to synthetic in nature.
In the modem pharmacology the drug action is quite often correlated with its chemical structure or active principle. But in Ayurvedic pharmacology the drug action is attributed to certain principles/attributes namely Rasa, Guna, Virya, Vipaka and Prabhava of the active principles of the drug. Rasa or taste of the drug indicates the genera! behaviour or effect of the drug on bodily or cellular components like Dosha (Vata, Pitta, Kapha), Dhatus (seven types of tissue components). Mala (me
Routes of drug administration play an important role in the elucidation of drug action. A drug may exert different effects when given by different routes. Thus, oral magnesium sulphate acts as saline purgative. When injected, it is a depressant of central nervous system and acts as an anti-convulsant. On the other hand, hypertonic magnesium sulfate, given as a retention enema, can be used to reduce intracranial tension. Madanaphala when given orally acts as emetic and if administered with Vasti Dravays (ingredients of enema) facilitates for its quicker transportation in the colon by its Urdwabhagahara property and acts as a synergistic for toning up the nervous system or relieving intracranial tension.

Ayurveda has emphasized much upon preventive and curative aspects of woman and child health. Exhaustive information on various issues related on the subject is available in various texts of Ayurveda viz. Chciraka Samhita. Sushruta Scimhita. Ashthanga Sangraha. Ashtanga Hrtdaya. and Kashyapa Samhita. The comprehensive explanation of woman's health comprises in the branch Kauniara Hhntya The meaning of word Kumura is Child and the term Bhrityu. derived from Bharana covers procuring, carrying, bearing, upbringing, maintaining, supporting anti nourishing etc. Accordingly the subject concerned with achievement of conception, its maintenance and delivery then its protection, support and nourishment comes under the purview of Kaumara Bhrityu. Hence, considered the subject of Prasuti Tantra and Stree Roga (Obstetrics and Gynaecology) in addition to Pediatrics under Kaumara Bhritya, one among the eight specialties of Ayurveda that deals with management of diseases of children and women. The concepts of Ayurveda provide couples with the hest chance of having a healthy infant and also give access to appropriate health-care services that will enable women to go safely through pregnancy and childbirth. Ayurvedic concepts of Shishu-upachara arc supportive in complete development of child in physical, mental and social aspects. Reproductive health is defined as a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity, in all matters relating to the reproductive system and to its functions and processes.
Despite the advances in technology, a high number of women continue to die in India. Top among the leading causes of death of women in developing countries is complications that arise during the pregnancy period and child birth. Sexually transmitted diseases. HIV and AIDS are among the other leading causes of death and disability among women of reproductive age. In India 301 women die annually for every 100,000 live births with wide regional disparities (SRS 2003). Maternal mortality is not the only adverse outcome of pregnancy. Because of miscarriages, induced abortion, and other factors, more than 40% of the pregnancies in developing countries result in complications, illnesses, or permanent disability for the mother or the child (WHO. 2001). These consequences cost a lot on national economics and reflect on the development of the country.
