    Preface

    Fourteen years back while the author of this present volume had been engaged in studying and discussing works on different systems of Indian philosophy such as Samkhya-Yoga, Vedanta, Bauddha etc., he felt the urge for a systematic presentation of a comprehensive stream of Indian philosophy and culture called Tantras in general. This stream forms a significant part of India's tradition, culture and spiritual practices from time immemorial.

    In spite of some commendable spade works on Tantras from historical point of view by Sir John Woodroffe and his foundation of Agama Anusandhana Samiti and its publications, works on Kasmira Saivism by J.C. Chatterjee, K.C. Pandey and other distinguished scholars, some works on Tamil School of Saivism called Saiva Sidihanta and outstanding contributions made by M. M. Pandit Gopinath Kaviraj, Swami Pratyagatmananda Sarasvati, Sri Aurobindo and others on Sakta view of life and spiritual practice (Sadhana), it is still the least understood, and misinterpreted system of Indian culture and thought.

    It is true that Tantras are essentially Sadhana Sastras but that does not stand in the way of interpreting its fundamental concepts in a rational way. Every system of Indian philosophy such as, Samkhya-Yoga, Nyaya-Vaisesika, Vedanta and Buddha etc. has got a distinctive spiritual side of its own but each of its speculative part is also very much developed. Hundreds of Commentaries and Critical Notes have been written on each of these schools. Why not then the Fundamental Concepts of Tantras should be made intelligible to the educated public? Philosophy that is relevant to life is always a living analysis of experience, an account of the experiential possession at every step of analysis, as much as at the natural level as at the level of Transcendence, and Tantra is exactly that II a sort of Phenomenology enlivening ...

    The Paramārthasāra, or ‘Essence of Ultimate Reality’, is a work of the Kashmirian polymath Abhinavagupta (tenth–eleventh centuries). It is a brief treatise in which the author outlines the doctrine of which he is a notable exponent, namely nondualistic Śaivism, which he designates in his works as the Trika, or ‘Triad’ of three principles: Śiva, Śakti and the embodied soul (nara).

    The main interest of the Paramārthasāra is not only that it serves as an introduction to the established doctrine of a tradition, but also advances the notion of jiv̄anmukti, ‘liberation in this life’, as its core theme. Further, it does not confine itself to an exposition of the doctrine as such but at times hints at a second sense lying beneath the evident sense, namely esoteric techniques and practices that are at the heart of the philosophical discourse. Its commentator, Yogarāja (eleventh century), excels in detecting and clarifying those various levels of meaning. An Introduction to Tantric Philosophy presents, along with a critically revised Sanskrit text, the first annotated English translation of both Abhinavagupta’s Paramārthasāra and Yogarāja’s commentary.

    This book will be of interest to Indologists, as well as to specialists and students of Religion, Tantric studies and Philosophy.

    A master thief waited his whole life to acquire the most beautiful diamond in the world. When he heard it had been purchased, he spent three days trying to steal the rare jewel. He failed.
    Finally, the thief walked right up to the owner and asked, “How did you hide this precious jewel from me?”
    To which the owner replied, “I placed it where I knew you would never look—in your own pocket!”
    This insightful tale opens the first major book release from Gangaji—an American-born teacher who has influenced the lives of thousands of people through her public events.
    In The Diamond in Your Pocket, Gangaji describes our never-ending search as human beings to find fulfillment—which, paradoxically, already exists if only we will stop long enough to experience it. Readers join Gangaji to learn more about:
    How to let go of your need to control, and activate instead the choice of where you put your mind’s attention
    Cultivating the courage to be vulnerable, so you can meet—and deeply merge with—the unknown
    How to unearth the roots of suffering—learn to stop replaying your life’s dramatic stories over and over, and much more
    “As long as you are searching for it, it cannot be found, ” teaches Gangaji. Written as a series of short contemplations, The Diamond in Your Pocket shows you thought-by-thought how to stop the endless activity of your mind, and experience the brilliance and radiance of who you really are.

    title: The Vedic Origins of Karma : Cosmos As Man in Ancient Indian Myth and Ritual
    author: Tull, Herman Wayne.
    publisher: State University of New York Press
    isbn10 | asin: 0791400948
    print isbn13: 9780791400944
    ebook isbn13: 9780585088464
    language: English
    subject Karma, Vedic literature--History and criticism.
    publication date: 1989

    At the most basic level, the Vedic tradition employed the term karman, from the Sanskrit root /kr ("to do"), to describe the "doing" of the sacrificial ritual. However, over the many centuries during which it represented India's "culturally hegemonous" system of belief and practice, the Vedic sacrifice developed into an entity of astounding complexity, and the ''doing'' of the sacrifice became more than a matter of simple action.

    Karma, as a "doctrine," emerges from these complex structures; the textual point of this emergence is the early Upanisads. This textual epoch represents a "privileged" point in the history of the Indian tradition; for these texts represent at once the furthest edge of Vedic sacrificial thought and the first stage in the rise of classical Hindu thought.
    And at this point certain notions, such as karma, attain the stature of "doctrines"; that is, they are articulated in ways quite similar to their later existence as the presuppositions for nearly all (post-Vedic) Hindu thought.

    The aim of this book is to examine and delineate the Vedic structures leading to this emergence, for, I believe, the earliest statements of karma in the Upanisads look back to structures, patterns, and paradigms already containedin both ideology and practicein the Vedic rite. And, though not all these structures may have been "originally" Vedic, before the karma doctrine emerges in the Upanisads, its antecedents were already entrenched within the sphere of the established Vedic tradition.

    Book Description

    A guide to the seemingly effortless yet explosively powerful martial art techniques of Fa Jin

    • Explains how to collect energy within and discharge it for self-defense as well as healing

    • Explores how to counter the natural instinct to resist force with force and develop yielding softness through the 13 Original Movements of Tai Chi

    • Illustrates routines for the partner practice of “Push Hands” (Tui Shou)

    Fa Jin, an advanced yang style of Tai Chi, complements the physical, mental, and spiritual conditioning available through solo Tai Chi practice and the internal martial arts of Taoism. Fa Jin enables adepts to harness the energy of yin, yang, and the earth in the lower tan tien and discharge it as an extremely close-range yet explosively powerful blow in self-defense and partner practice as well as in healing techniques.

    Integrating the teachings of many Taoist masters, including Chang San-Feng, the creator of Tai Chi; Wang Tsung-Yueh, the legendary 19th-century master; Bruce Lee, the actor and martial artist who made the “one-inch punch” technique famous; and the Magus of Java, a living master able to discharge energy in the form of electric shocks, this book explores the history, philosophy, internal exercises, and physical practices of Fa Jin. Drawing on Iron Shirt Chi Kung and Tan Tien Chi Kung techniques, Master Mantak Chia and Andrew Jan reveal the secrets to collecting yin and yang in the lower tan tien and discharging the energy in a seemingly effortless yet explosive blow. Illustrating several routines of the Tai Chi partner practice of “Push Hands” (Tui Shou), they explain how to apply Fa Jin techniques by “listening” to your opponent’s intentions and countering the natural instinct to resist force with force through yielding softness and redirection. The authors also detail how to prepare for this advanced practice through stretching, meditation, breathing, relaxation, and energetic exercises. MsSVig

    Otto Heinrich Muck (1892-1956) was born in Vienna and graduated as an engineer at the Munich College of Advanced Technology. Muck had a very productive life that saw him hold patents for around 2000 inventions at the time of his death. He was a flying officer during World War I, during World War II he invented the U-boat schnorkel and was also a member of the Peenemunde Rocket Research Team. After the war Muck was a scientific consultant to large industrial concerns. He died in 1956 following an accident.

    Muck published his worthwhile contribution to the Atlantis mystery, in German, in 1954. It was translated into English by Fred Bradley and published in Britain in 1978[098] . The book was well received and his views continue to have support today.

    Muck’s book is now out of print, but an English translation of  it can now be viewed and downloaded from the Internet(a). Unfortunately, this is a machine translation with all the flaws you can expect.

    Muck believed that Atlantis had been located on the Mid Atlantic Ridge and was destroyed as a consequence of an asteroidal impact. He maintained that the asteroid hit the Atlantic, east of the Caribbean, creating the remarkable Carolina Bays en route with its attendant debris and causing tectonic disturbance of such a magnitude that it led to the sinking of Atlantis. Muck attributes many of our flood myths to the ensuing tsunamis. With teutonic precision he pinpoints the date of this disaster to June 5th, 8498 BC. MsSVig

    Expanding on his mantra—Get out of your head and into the moment—Eckhart Tolle offers this new book on living in the now. Here Tolle emphasizes the art of "inner stillness"--the place where thoughts, ego and attachments fall always and we are left only with what the moment has to offer: "When you lose touch with inner stillness, you lose touch with yourself. When you lose touch with yourself, you lose yourself in the world." Don't expect this to be a quick skim or even a straight-through read. Like his previous bestselling book The Power of Now, Tolle uses brief entries and numerous white spaces to give readers easy in-and-out access into enticing spiritual insights that expound on inner stillness, such as learning the difference between surrender and resignation, overcoming the fear death, and how to end suffering. In fact, this is designed to be an ongoing conversation. Pick it up any time or any place, but be sure to allow for plenty of breaks for serious contemplation. Even as you occasionally abandon the book, don't abandon the teachings, pleads Tolle. Embracing and practicing inner stillness is no longer a luxury, he writes, "but a necessity if humankind is not to destroy itself. At the present time the dysfunction of the old consciousness and the arising of the new are both accelerating. Paradoxically things are getting worse and bett! er at the same time, although 'the worse' is more apparent because it makes so much noise." Devotees who have read all of Tolle's books and audio tapes probably won't find new ideas or information here. But they may appreciate the refresher course --revisiting familiar concepts in a slightly different package. --Gail Hudson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

    From Publishers Weekly
    Some readers of this slim follow-up to the bestselling The Power of Now may be alarmed that the seemingly wise and gentle Tolle writes in the introduction that his new work "can be seen as a revival for the present age of the oldest form of recorded spiritual teachings: the sutras of ancient India." Tolle explains that the Vedas and Upanishads, as well as the words of the Buddha, the parables of Jesus and the wisdom of the Tao Te Ching can be thought of as sutras in the sense that they share a brevity that "does not engage the thinking mind more than is necessary." Like those great sacred works, Tolle continues, his writings come from inner stillness. "Unlike those ancient sutras, however, they don't belong to any one religion or spiritual tradition, but are immediately accessible to the whole of humanity." Repeating what has become a familiar if no less ominous note in contemporary spiritual life, he adds that this unprecedented accessibility is due to the urgent need for humanity to wake up if we are not to destroy ourselves. It is the stillness that is our common Being-which is the formless container for what is happening in the now-"that will save and transform the world." In the brief chapters that follow, Tolle describes stillness with eloquent economy. Beautiful stand-alone paragraphs offer insight into the defensive nature of the ego versus what he sees as our true being, the attentive, receptive mind behind thought, the spaciousness and peace that blossoms inside when we accept what is, including death. "Your unhappiness ultimately arises not from the circumstances of your life but from the conditioning of your mind." No one will doubt that Tolle has freed himself from nagging thoughts and fears. But the rest of us? MsSVig

    Amazon.com Review
    This manual-style book instantly dives into Eckhart Tolle's principles of "living in the moment," which could be a jarring experience for readers who haven't read his preceding book, The Power of Now. For the initiated, though, this makes an excellent companion guide--rich in exercises and meditations to help readers get out of their minds so they can live more peacefully in their bodies. Sometimes it's hard to fathom what on earth Tolle is talking about: "To regain awareness of Being and to abide in that state of 'feeling-realization' is enlightenment." Be patient. All concepts will be revealed (or at least more carefully explained). Ultimately, Tolle leads readers into a new form of thinking (or actually not thinking) that erases the consuming habits of waiting, worrying, and being in fear. The first step is ending the "delusion of time." He asks, "Are you always trying to get somewhere other than where you are? ... Is most of your doing just a means to an end?" If so, Tolle has a book full of advice for you. As simplistic as this may sound, Tolle's work has spiritual merit and depth, especially for frantic Westerners who find their lives diminished by packed schedules and busy-ness. --Gail Hudson

    This Manual has been assembled out of the backlog of unpublished materials collected to date from many classes taught by Yogi Bhajan . during the last six years. This collection represents only a small part of the wide range of meditations and exercises that might have been included. We have attempted to provide you with a well-integrated collection, including many exercise sets taken from the Claremont College classes of early 1970. These sets are unique in their simplicity and in the physical power that practicing them will generate,
    (as well as in the great physical and mental peace that follows.)

    Several of the meditations are taken from the "3HO Advanced Class," taught at 3HO International Headquarters in Los Angeles. This class, taught by Yogi Bhajan at regular intervals, is an ongoing vehicle and resource for the growth and inspiration of all those who have been blessed with the experience of attending it. For six years it has been the most consistent source for the latest developments and training in the art and technology of meditation.

    Other meditations have been taken from the Summer Course, sponsored annually by KRI (Kundalini Research Institute) in New Mexico. Many were taught by Yogi Bhajan during morning sadhana, and represent a certain level of refinement and subtlety in technique that the more advanced student will greatly appreciate.

    "Sadhana" means spiritual practice. Although every moment of the day should be lived to the fullest in conscious action, that period of time three hours prior to the rising of the sun is particularly favorable for one's yogic sadhana. It is at this time that the energies of the planet and those of the individual psyche are most physically in tune. This, then, is the best time to "tune in" to these same energies and reap the-full benefit from one's yoga practice.

    It is literally accurate to refer to what we do as a "yogic practice. II We are always developing in our conscious awareness as well as our yogicfl~ibility and attainment. Yet, in a greater sense, we always remain students--even as teachers we can always learn and benefit from the experience that practice provides.

    In this spirit let us cherish each exercise set, kriya, and meditation that the present volume provides. Let us honestly practice them and derive the full benefits that they promise. Yogi Bhajan has often reminded us that "practice makes perfect," and lias you sow, so shall you reap." These ancient and universal truths beckon us to make more than a casual investrnent--more than the price of this publication--more than a mere Buperficial glossing over the contents herein.

    We are called upon to make the most of the time available to us during our lifetime. If it is liberation that we are seeking then we should proceed first and foremost to the task that is ahead of us~ for "there is no liberation without labor~ there is no freedom which is free."

    Life, fortunately, has its lighter and_ more entertaining side(s). Relax, be well, and enjoy the gems of wisdom and experience that you find within. Grow, glow, and radiate in the light and love of your own quest. It is towards the One that we are all directed. To see that One in everyone is our greatest privilege~ to experience that One within ourselves is our greatest joy. SAT NAM and the best of all possible worlds to you all. MsSVig

    Reiki Shiki Ryoho is an ancient method of self-mastery (or self-growth, if you prefer)
    and healing using the chakras (energy centre’s) along with several energy/power
    symbols. The symbols are merely, in my opinion, a training guide for new initiates to
    get used to using intent and focusing on the different levels/frequencies of energy.

    The words “Reiki Shiki Ryoho” (pronounced: Ray-key Shi-key Ro-ho) mean:
    ‘Reiki’ {Universal Life Energy}
    ‘Shiki’ {System}
    ‘Ryoho’ {Method of Healing}

    An excerpt from a Japanese dictionary reveals the following about the word “Reiki”:
    Reiki Shiki Ryoho is a set of five principles for living (precepts), has three degrees
    or levels to learn (some others you may encounter use more), a set of hand positions
    for treating yourself and others, and the receiving of an Attunement to connect to the
    Reiki energy. An Attunement is a simple ceremony that helps you to reconnect to the
    energy that IS Reiki performed by a Reiki teacher or "Master".

    In Reiki I, the student learns to use the Reiki and to heal using hands on healing for
    themselves and others. Scanning, or Byosen, is not usually taught, but I use it. The
    student receives four Attunements.

    In Reiki II, the student learns three Reiki symbols and learns distant healing for
    those not physically present. The student receives one Attunement.

    Reiki III is the Master/Teacher's degree. The student receives one Attunement and
    two symbols are taught. The Attunements for Reiki I, Reiki II, and Reiki III (Master)
    are also taught. A Master is someone who knows the Reiki system, and has been
    trained to teach and Attune others to Reiki.

    My recommended learning periods between Reiki levels are:
    Level I – 2 months before learning Reiki II
    Level II – 4 months before learning Reiki III
    Level III – 6 months before teaching Reiki

    Remember these are only recommendations, not law. For example, if you feel
    proficient with Level II and its symbols after 4 weeks and want to learn Level III
    before the recommended 6-month mark, be my guest. Like I said before, these are
    only my recommendations, nothing more, nothing less. MsSVig

    themselves and others. Scanning, or Byosen, is not usually taught, but I use it. The
    student receives four Attunements.

    In Reiki II, the student learns three Reiki symbols and learns distant healing for
    those not physically present. The student receives one Attunement.

    Reiki III is the Master/Teacher's degree. The student receives one Attunement and
    two symbols are taught. The Attunements for Reiki I, Reiki II, and Reiki III (Master)
    are also taught. A Master is someone who knows the Reiki system, and has been
    trained to teach and Attune others to Reiki.

    My recommended learning periods between Reiki levels are:
    Level I – 2 months before learning Reiki II
    Level II – 4 months before learning Reiki III
    Level III – 6 months before teaching Reiki

    Remember these are only recommendations, not law. For example, if you feel
    proficient with Level II and its symbols after 4 weeks and want to learn Level III
    before the recommended 6-month mark, be my guest. Like I said before, these are
    only my recommendations, nothing more, nothing less. MsSVig
