    Author: Frithjof Schuon

    About the author: Born in Basle, Switzerland in 1907, Frithjof Schuon was the twentieth century's pre-eminent spokesman for the perennialist school of comparative religious thought. The leitmotif of Schuon's work was foreshadowed in an encounter during his youth with a marabout who had accompanied some members of his Senegalese village to Basle for the purpose of demonstrating their African culture. When Schuon talked with him, the venerable old man drew a circle with radii on the ground and explained: "God is the center; all paths lead to Him." Until his later years Schuon traveled widely, from India and the Middle East to America, experiencing traditional cultures and establishing lifelong friendships with Hindu, Buddhist, Christian, Muslim, and American Indian spiritual leaders. A philosopher in the tradition of Plato, Shankara, and Eckhart, Schuon was a gifted artist and poet as well as the author of over twenty books on religion, metaphysics, sacred art, and the spiritual path. Describing his first book, The Transcendent Unity of Religions, T. S. Eliot wrote, "I have met with no more impressive work in the comparative study of Oriental and Occidental religion", and world-renowned religion scholar Huston Smith said of Schuon, "The man is a living wonder; intellectually apropos religion, equally in depth and breadth, the paragon of our time". Schuon's books have been translated into over a dozen languages and are respected by academic and religious authorities alike. More than a scholar and writer, Schuon was a spiritual guide for seekers from a wide variety of religions and backgrounds throughout the world. He died in 1998.

    ALCHEMICAL PSYCHOLOGY
    The James Hillman Uniform Edition Vol. 5

    SUBJECT: Archetypal Psychology

    All of James Hillman's papers on the alchemical imagination from 1980 to the present:

    "Therapeutic Value of Alchemical Language";
    "Silver and the White Earth";
    "Alchemical Blue and the Unio Mentalis";
    "Salt: A Chapter in Alchemical Psychology";
    "Rudiments: Fire. Ovens, Vessels, Fuel, Glass";

    "Our concepts have so defined these words that we forget that matter is a concept in the mind, a psychic fantasy, and that soul is our living experience amid things and bodies in the world.  It is not the literal return to alchemy that is necessary but a restoration of the alchemical mode of imagining. For in that mode we restore matter to our speech – and that, after all, is our aim: the restoration of imaginative matter, not of literal alchemy."

    SENEX & PUER
    The James Hillman Uniform Edition, Vol. 6

    SUBJECT: Archetypal Psychology

    Glen Slater writes in his introduction: "This volume, for the first time, collects James Hillman's running encounters with a primary psychological pattern, an archetype that arises alongside the very attempt to fashion psychological perspective. Senex and puer are Latin terms for "old man" and "youth," and personify the poles of tradition, stasis, structure, and authority on one side, and immediacy, wandering, invention and idealism on the other. The senex consolidates, grounds and disciplines; the puer flashes with insight and thrives on fantasy and creativity. These diverging, conflicting tendencies are ultimately interdependent, forming two faces of the one configuration, each face never far from the other. "Old" and "new" maybe the most direct terms for the pair.  Thirteen chapters include the themes of Opportunism, Betrayal, Wounds and Scars, Negativity, Nostalgia, the Soul/Spirit Distinction, Verticality, Ambition, and Transcendence.

    Quote:

    "Soul arises when the universal meets the unique, when depth is sounded, and open wounds begin to scar over with the skin of reflective engagement. In Hillman’s view, soul is present whenever the mythic imagination cradles the sufferings, longings and visions of everyday life."

    [b]HEALING FICTION]
    James Hillman, 1983

    Hillman presents a remarkable and radical conception of the purpose of psychoanalysis as process by which the desires of the soul are alllowed to find expression in language and narrative.  Hillman equates the psyche with the soul and seeks to set out a psychology based without shame in art and culture. The goal is to draw soul into the world via the creative acts of the individual, not to exclude it in the name of social order. The potential for soulmaking is revealed in by psychic images to which a person is drawn and apprehends in a meaningful way; Indeed the act of being drawn to and looking deeper at the images presented creates meaning – that is, soul.

    Hillman further suggests a new understanding of psychopathology. He stresses the importance of psychopathology to the human experience and replaces it out of a medical understanding into a poetic one. In this idea sickness is a vital part of the way the soul becomes known.

    Quote:

    Psychology must be gained for it is not given, and without psychological education we do not understand ourselves and we make our daimons suffer.  Psychoanalysis is a work of imaginative tellings in the realm of poiesis, which means simply “making,” and which I take to mean making by imagination into words. Our work more particularly belongs to the rhetoric of poiesis, by which I mean the persuasive power of imagining in words, an artfulness in speaking and hearing, writing and reading.

    Astro-Meteorologica, or aphorisms and large significant discurses of the natures and influences of the coelestial bodies by John Goad. London 1699.

    Weather forecasting is a difficult part of mundane astrology.

    The method, called astrometeorology, was further developed by Greek, Arab, and Renaissance scientists including Ptolemy, Al-Kindi, Tycho Brahe and Joannes Kepler. A major 17th century effort to test the method in a Baconian fashion was made by John Goad. Building on the ideas of Kepler and Goad, I test an isolated component of the method, specifically a correlation between geocentric Sun-Saturn alignments and cold temperatures, using modern daily temperature data from New England, Central England, Prague and other locations.

    'Saharsayogam' is enjoying the status of Ayurvedic Practical Prescriber among Kerala Ayurvedic Physicians. The public of Kerala also keeps this book with them and considers it as the book of Ayurvedic Home Remedies. 'Sahasrayogam' means one thousand formulations, and on a rough estimate it appears that the number of formulations vary from 700 to 1200 in various versions. It also appears that some more formulations have been added periodically to the original text based on their practical experiences, which resulted in the increase of total number of formulations. The formulations described in the book consist of different Kalpanas like Kashaya (Decoction), Taila (Medicated oil), Ghrita (Medicated Ghee), Choorna (Powder), Asava, Arishta (Fermented liquid), Vati, Gutika (Pill) and Lehya (Linctus). Besides the poly herbal formulations, single drug recipes are also indicated for the treatment of different diseases. In addition to the classical formulations some of the traditionally useful simple herbal recipes are also included in this book. MsSVig

    Astagahrydaya-quintessence of the eight branches ( of Ayurveda ) is one of the authoritative treatises on ancient Indian medicine. It had attracted the attention of medical men not only within this country but also of neighbouring countries such as Arabia Persia, Tibet and Germany. Its popularity is substantiated by the large number of commenta¬ries by Indian scholars and appreciation by the scholars of many other countries. With its beauty and brevity of poetical composition, sequential arrangement of topics, clear descri¬ption of precepts and practices of medical science and many other merits, it has earned its rightful place as one among the Brhat trayi-three great treatises-of Ayurveda. It is an epitome of Ayurveda catering to the needs of the students, scholars and medical practitioners alike. MsSVig

    Drupka Order -  Tibetan Buddhist rites from the monasteries of Bhutan ( 2005)

    Recorded by John Levy

    More than 140 minutes of the most powerful
    Tibetan music ever recorded. Mythic recordings
    by John Levy.

    John Levy, an Englishman in Bhutan, early seventies. Released by Lyrichord in the mid-'70s, all the people who have listen to these vinyls know that there isn't something more powerful, more prodigious and pure than them. John Levy was a London ethnomusicologist who took refuge in Tibetan Buddhism. So he had all the possibilities to record - with his Nagra stereo - all the rituals (even the most sacred). We can say that what is discovered here is unique and far beyond all that was done after that. All the material is fully remastered, and we propose the Levy's collection divided into two volumes: one of rituals and chanting (SR222, 2005) and one of instrumentals and folk music (SR230, 2005).

    The great power of the rituals of the Drupka and Nyingmapa Order. On the first volume, a double cd with extented notes, Rituals of the Drupka Order, the primary instrument is the long golden trumpet, along with various drums and percussion and a deep droning bass. Rather than soothingly meditative, the music can be a bit dissonant to Western ears. Chanted and played by 76 lamas and monks with long trumpets, shawms, cymbals, drums and other Tibetan instruments in sacred temples. Invited by the King of Bhutan, Levy was afforded every facility for recording monastic music in the main dzongs (great fort-like monasteries) of the Nyingmapa Order. The ethereal polytonal throat chanting, the long trumpets, shawms and percussion instruments, the processional music and spectacular mask dances, Tibetan and Bhutanese secular songs and poems, all reproduced with incredible sonic fidelity. A truly remarkable collection, with extensive liner notes, photographs, and musical illustrations by John Levy.

    These lectures present the results of a 10-year research project led by sinologist and Chinese medicine practitioner Heiner Fruehauf. This groundbreaking exploration employs ancient symbolism, star lore, and mythology to introduce a comprehensive method aimed at defining the functions of the Chinese organ networks with much greater clarity, depth and detail than presently outlined in the textbooks of modern TCM.

    The Caraka Saṃhitā or "Compendium of Caraka" is an early text on Ayurveda (Indian traditional medicine). It is one of the two foundational texts of this field, both dating to the early centuries of the Common Era.

    The Charaka-samhita as it exists today is thought to have arisen in the 1st century ce. Studies on ancient Indian medicine indicate, however, that the original text was written several centuries earlier by Agnivesha, who was one of six disciples of Ayurvedic scholar Punarvasu Atreya (the other five disciples were Bhela, Jatukarna, Parashara, Harita, and Ksharapani). Each of the disciples went on to compose samhitas, incorporating ideas from Atreya’s school of thought as well as their own understanding of the subject. Of those, the Agnivesha-samhita, composed by Agnivesha, was unique in depth and content. Later refined and annotated by Charaka, it came to be known as the Charaka-samhita. Charaka divided the treatise into eight parts, or ashtanga sthanas: sutra, nidana, vimana, sarira, endriya, chikitsa, kalpa, and siddha; each part contained multiple chapters.

    While Charaka delved into all aspects of medicine, including the logic and philosophy behind the Indian medicinal system, he placed special emphasis on the diagnosis of disease and treated Ayurveda as a comprehensive system of health care that dealt with both preventive and curative aspects. He also dealt elaborately with subjects such as fetal generation and development, anatomy of the human body, and function and malfunction of the body according to the tridosha (the three humours of the body)—vata, pitta, and kapha. He also discussed the classification of various diseases. MsSVig

    In 1919 the young Daskalos, was already able to Self-Consciously travel to the worlds of the higher dimensions.  At seven, he could speak the languages of his past lives and consciously communicated with “great intelligences” that guided him from the worlds beyond.  His parents knew this and believed in his abilities but warned him not to reveal these things to other people.  From the beginning of this incarnation Daskalos knew who he was and the purpose of his life on Earth.  What he did not know at the beginning was that all the people around him were not like him. He thought everyone could communicate with these higher intelligences whom he called brother guides; but he was about to find out just how different he really was.

    We could rightly say that in 1919 the seven year-old Daskalos established the beginning of the Circles for the Research of Truth and the System for the Research of Truth, which continues to this day.  Today, each of Daskalos’ Researchers of Truth Circles is headed by an advanced brother or sister Researcher of Truth.  Each circle is independent from the other circles, which means that the leaders and members of one circle do not interfere with the work or members of the other circles.
