    Title: Three Years in Tibet: With the Original Japanese Illustrations
    Author: The Shramana Ekai Kawaguchi, Late Rector of Gohyakurakan Monastery, Japan.
    Publisher: The Theosophist Office, Adyar, Madras, Theosophical Publishing Society, Benares and London
    Date: 1909
    Length: xvi + 719 pages

    A travelogue by a Japanese Buddhist monk who traveled in Tibet.

    From Amazon reviews:
    In 1897 a Japanese Buddhist Monk left Japan to walk into Tibet to gather Buddhist scriptures and learning. He first went to India to learn to speak Tibetan and then after some years, he walked into Tibet, avoiding the usual checkpoints. He had to do this because generally the penalty for incursion into Tibet was death - to that person and everyone who helped them.
    His account of the journey was nothing short of miraculous. His route was the highest and most difficult and the stories of how he survived leave you breathless. He survived on practically no food and on one frozen occasion, he kept himself alive overnight in the winter in inadequate clothing by meditating.
    Eventually he bluffs his way in and is admitted to a monastery where he begins study and eventually, although he is not a doctor, he establishes a reputation as a skilled doctor by reason of his skills which are far better than the local doctors - in fact, he believes the best advice in Tibet is to avoid their doctors if you want to live. He even becomes physician to the Dalai Lama.
    He remained there 3 years observing every thing around him. His descriptions of local society, religion, customs, marriages, funerals, appointment of Lamas including the Dalai Lama, government, punishment, ignorance, superstition, cleanliness (or the opposite) and practically everything else you could think of (including the relationship with China) is fascinating and a must-read for anyone wanting to understand the present situation with China and the world.
    Three Years in Tibet is an important and inadvertently hilarious book. Kawaguchi was a Japanese Buddhist scholar; his fastidious and serious disposition is immediately apparent, and at complete odds with the environment in which he found himself. Kawaguchi's Tibet is plagued with filth, less than perfect monks, and customs that he finds abhorrent. In great detail, he describes the customs and culture, as well as the details of life in the Lhasa region. He was able to pass as Chinese, and therefore was able to live freely in the city - visitors from other foreign nations were deported. The portrait that Kawaguchi paints is of a very real and diverse society. Recommended to anyone who is interested in Tibet, Tibetan Buddhism, China, or travel writing. It is also chock full of information useful to historians and other scholars. Best of all, it is an easy and delightful read.

    Title: Graceful Exits: How Great Beings Die - Death Stories of Tibetan, Hindu and Zen Masters
    Author: Sushila Blackman (compiled and edited by)
    Publisher: Weatherhill
    Date: 2005
    Length: 160 pages
    ISBN-13: 978-1590302705

    Scan quality is a little low, but the book is perfectly readable.

    From Google Books review:
    Death is a subject obscured by fear and denial. When we do think of dying, we are more often concerned with how to avoid the pain and suffering that may accompany our death than we are with really confronting the meaning of death and how to approach it. Sushila Blackman places death - and life - in a truer perspective, by telling us of others who have left this world with dignity.
    Graceful Exits offers valuable guidance in the form of 108 stories recounting the ways in which Hindu, Tibetan Buddhist, and Zen masters, both ancient and modern, have confronted their own deaths. By directly presenting the grace, clarity, and even humor with which great spiritual teachers have met the end of their days, Blackman provides inspiration and nourishment to anyone truly concerned with the fundamental issues of life and death.

    Editorial Review by Library Journal:
    Blackman narrates the death stories of over 100 Tibetan, Hindu, and Zen masters, ancient and modern. The striking element in these accounts is a sense of being fully prepared to meet death. Blackman grappled with lung cancer and came to peace with her own fears about death as she compiled this book, completed only a few months before she died. As Blackman notes, the Judaeo-Christian perspective of death is not represented here, but this fills a demand for inspirational books about death and Eastern spirituality.

    This is an audio recording from a speech given during a retreat in Russia. It is in English with Russian translation.
    It has a lot of information on how to withdraw the mind from the stimulants of the external world and focus the mind.
    As in many spiritual traditions and Yoga music plays an important role, he introduces Mantra singing to the retreat participants and gives many guidelines from his long experience of being a meditation instructor and monk.

    Title: The Eminent Monk: Buddhist Ideals in Medieval Chinese Hagiography
    (Studies in East Asian Buddhism: Book 10)
    Author: John Kieschnick
    Publisher: A Kuroda Institute Book, University of Hawai'i Press, Honolulu
    Date: 1 October 1997
    Length: 219 pages
    ISBN: 0-8248-1841-5

    From Amazon Reviews:
    This study of medieval Chinese monks is solid and well written. The author has gone through all the basic sources and divided medieval monastic life into three main categories: asceticism, thaumaturgy, and scholarship. He probes each of these in detail, revealing complexities and contradictions in monastic identity. This book is essential reading for anyone interested in medieval Chinese Buddhism.

    About the Author:
    John Kieschnick received a Ph.D. from Stanford University in 1995. After a year as a postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Chinese Studies, University of California, Berkeley, he took up his current position as an assistant researcher at the Institute of History and Philology, Academia Sinica in Taipei.

    Title: Islamic Art and Spirituality
    Author: Seyyed Hossein Nasr
    Publisher: State University of New York Press, Albany
    Date: 1987
    Length: x + 213 pages
    ISBN: 0-88706-174-5; 088706-175-3 (pbk.)

    Format: Adapted from html file; however, it contains all images and original Oriental texts.

    Amazon Book Description:
    With remarkable breadth of vision, Seyyed Hossein Nasr reveals for both Western and Muslim readers how each art form in the islamic tradition is based upon a science of nature concerned, not with the outer appearance of things, but with their inner reality. Ranging across calligraphy, painting, architecture, literature, music, and the plastic arts, Nasr penetrates to the inner dimension of Islam and shows the role art plays in the life of individual Muslims and the community as a whole - the role of inspiring the remembrance and contemplation of God.
    Once the author establishes art as an aid and support to the spiritual life, he traces the creative act to its ultimate source: inner knowledge and barakah, or grace, which make the crystallization of inner realities in form and space and time possible. Through this knowledge and grace, the author asserts, unity manifests upon the plane of multiplicity, making archetypal realities perceivable by the senses. Through this knowledge and grace, art functions as a ladder for the journey of the soul from the visible to the invisible. How Islamic art leads man to the inner chamber of divine revelation forms the substance of much of this important work.
    An especially close look is given to the Sufi tradition within Islam, for its mystical teachers have often clearly demonstrated in their works the spiritual significance of beauty and served as the source of inspiration for art.
    By rediscovering the root of art in the Islamic tradition, Seyyed Hossein Nasr opens doors to new dimensions of unity which have seemingly been obscured in recent Western art. In so doing, he extends the significance of this book beyond the Islamic belief system to touch the hearts and creative impulses of readers from all traditions.

    About the Author:
    Seyyed Hossein Nasr is currently University Professor of Islamic Studies at George Washington University. Born in Tehran and educated at MIT and Harvard, he was previously professor of the history of science and philosophy at Tehran University and first president of the Iranian Academy of Philosophy. He has taught throughout America, Europe, the Middle East, Pakistan, India, Japan, and Australia. He is the author of over twenty books in English. Among them are Sufi Essays, Islamic Life and Thought, Knowledge and the Sacred, and Three Muslim Sages.

    Length: 680 pages
    ISBN-10: 0415342953
    ISBN-13: 978-0415342957

    Book Description:
    In recent decades various versions of Chinese medicine have begun to be widely practised in Western countries, and the academic study of the subject is now well established. However, there are still few scholarly monographs that describe the history of Chinese medicine and there are none at all on the medieval period. This collection represents the kind of international collaboration of research teams, centres and individuals that is required to begin to study the source materials adequately. The first book in English to discuss this fascinating material in the century since the Dunhuang library was discovered, the text provides a unique and fascinating interpretation of Chinese medical history.

    Book Description:
    First published in 1951, Shamanism soon became the standard work in the study of this mysterious and fascinating phenomenon. Writing as the founder of the modern study of the history of religion, Romanian émigré - scholar Mircea Eliade (1907-1986) surveys the practice of Shamanism over two and a half millennia of human history, moving from the Shamanic traditions of Siberia and Central Asia -where Shamanism was first observed - to North and South America, Indonesia, Tibet, China, and beyond. In this authoritative survey, Eliade illuminates the magico-religious life of societies that give primacy of place to the figure of the Shaman - at once magician and medicine man, healer and miracle-doer, priest, mystic, and poet. Synthesizing the approaches of psychology, sociology, and ethnology, Shamanism will remain for years to come the reference book of choice for those intrigued by this practice.

    This book is for those who want Illumination itself, not a description of it--and for those who want to know how to live it. This volume THE AWARENESS OF SELF-DISCOVERY is a companion to A GUIDE TO AWARENESS AND TRANQUILLITY. It will expand the themes presented in that book and permit a degree of insight into the not always easy, but requisite living of them...

    his book is intended for those who want peace of mind and are prepared for it. Those who are prepared are those who are willing to leave old landmarks--willing to forsake ego and intellectuality. Those who do will find these words instantaneously effective.

    All of us who have lived this philosophy have found that we are able to see the immediate end of much personal agony the instant we pull the rug from the under our former value judgments. It is our continual "This is good and that is bad; I love this and hate that; this is valuable and that worthless; this, dangerous, that safe, etc." that precludes either a clear perception or a full enjoyment of the Perfect NOW.

    It has very often been our determination that something is "good" that would have us cherishing it, lusting after it, struggleing to own it, guard it, worship it or bemoan its loss. It is equally our value-judgement that something is bad that has had us hating it, running from it, struggleing to get rid of it or crusading against it. the very same "thing" is frequently loved by one and hated by another, so clearly the agony is not in the "thing" but in the judgemnet of it. By and large, value judgements bestow either positive or negative value to the "thing", be it a sight, sound, person, place, event, feeling or idea, and it is a value we do not need to make nor give to the image.

    We have found our ability to subdue value-judgments easier said than done. It is an ingrained habit of long standing--but it is possible to break it, nonetheless, and the "results" are immediate from the moment we begin to try.

    The primary "way" to see images as neither good nor bad is to percieve the absolute Fact that they are included within awarneness AS awareness, and that they are all, equally, the same "substance"--Awareness, Spirit, Mind, Isness. The "value" lies with Awareness, not the image it includes. To give the image a value that belongs here as this very Identity awareness is, is to give away the dominion that is rightfully ours and thereby yield ourselves servants to obey the image. The "value" ever resides here as the ineffable That which is being this Consciousness I Am. MsSVig

    Lama Sonam Dorje - 37 Practices of Bodhisattva. Yoga tummo (inner heat, kundalini yoga) (RUSSIAN)

    3 DVDs set of video recorded at 2008 in Kiev, Ukraine. This video will explain you how to find a love and harmony inside yourself but not in things around you. Also you can find instructions on yoga tummo here. 11 hours of details and techniques. Only for russian speaking community.
    Lama Sonam Dorje (Oleg Pozdnjakov) - russian lama, disciple of Choki Nima Rinpoche. Finished 3 and 4 years retreats in Nepal and was granted by Rinpoche to give Chokling Tersar instructions in Russia and Ukraine.

    About Chokling Tersar:
    During the ninth century, Buddhism was introduced from India into Tibet and its literature and culture has since been preserved in a way that has been unique in accuracy and truthfulness to tradition. Four decades ago, the occupation of Tibet by Communist China began an era of repression and systematic destruction of this thousand year old Buddhist culture. Shreds of this tradition reached the countries on the southern slopes of the Himalaya ranges - India, Nepal and Bhutan - in the hands of the few refugees who managed to escape alive. During the following years these areas have been the meeting-point and a forum of exchange between a large number of people from all countries of the world.

    In response to the heart-wish of Kyabje Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche, the Chokling Tersar Foundation was established. It is in the spirit of wishing to protect and preserve one of the important contributions to the world's cultural heritage, as well as responding to a growing demand within North America, that the members of Chokling Tersar Foundation support the foundation through donations of effort, money and prayers.

    Chokling Tersar literally means the 'new treasures of Chokgyur Lingpa' and owes it name to the great Tibetan Buddhist master of the 19th century. Chokgyur Lingpa lived from (1829-1870) and was regarded by the most reputable living masters of his time as one of the major tertons (revealer of hidden treasures) in Tibetan history. His teachings are widely practiced by both the Kagyu and Nyingma schools of Tibetan Buddhism.

    The collection of treasures revealed by Chokgyur Lingpa together with its connected teachings are contained in the Chokling Tersar, a body of literature filling more than forty large volumes. In English translation each of these volumes would be between seven and eight hundred pages and the total would amount to approximately 30,000 pages. The connected teachings included in these forty volumes were written over the last 150 years, chiefly by his contemporaries Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo and Jamgon Kongtrul, as well as by the subsequent upholders of the lineage down until today.

    The Chokling Tersar literature is meant to be studied and practiced as an addition to the traditional canonical scriptures of Tibetan Buddhism. These traditional scriptures are found in the Kangyur and Tengyur, the written words of Buddha Shakyamuni and their commentaries by learned Indian Masters. These two collections occupy respectively 104 and 273 large volumes.

    In these scriptures are found detailed instructions on how to take full advantage of and imbue human life with its fullest meaning. These revealed scriptures were concealed by the 9th century Buddhist saint Padmasambhava with the expressed wish to be uncovered at specific times in the future. Many of them contain predictions for those times and which particular spiritual practices would be most beneficial for the people of those times.

    In the Paths of the Gods




    This series tells the stories of the Greek gods and heroes, vividly narrated by one of today’s greatest storytellers, Sir Peter Ustinov. Filmed in Greece at Mount Olympus, Athens, Delphi, Olympia, and on the islands of Delos and Samathras, these programs retrace the origins of Greek mythology and explain the rivalries between the gods. The programs explore the human search for meaning in the chaotic forces of nature and the universe above, and remind contemporary audiences of the relevance of myths and legends for our own time.

    Zeus: King of the Gods


    In the beginning was Chaos. And Eurynome divided the seas from the sky, set the wind in motion, and released the forces of nature. Out of the Universal Egg emerged the sun and moon, the planets, the stars, the earth, and all living things. This program tells that story, and that of the first family: Gaea, Uranus, and Cronus. It then moves on to Zeus: his birth on Crete, the trick by which he was saved, and how he dethroned his father. Also discussed are Zeus’s marriage to Hera, and his amorous adventures with Alcmene and Leda. The latter affair ultimately produced Helen, over whom the Trojan War was fought, and Europa, mother of King Minos. (26 minutes) MsSVig

    Athene and Aphrodite: Wisdom and Love


    In this program, we discover that Athene sprang full-grown and fully-armed from Zeus’s head, and that Aphrodite emerged from the sea where the physical evidence had landed of Cronus’ castration of Uranus. Also explored are love stories of Aphrodite, the myths of Neritis, Anchises, Pygmalion, and Galatea, the mythological roots of the Trojan War, and the lives of Ares and of Adonis. Athene gives mortals the olive tree, becomes patroness of Attica, and invents the chariot, the potter’s wheel, and the plow. In the Trojan War, Aphrodite favors the Trojans, while Athene uses her wisdom to help the Greeks. Zeus assumes the role of mediator between the goddess of wisdom and the goddess of love.

    Poseidon: Master of the Seas


    The Greeks prayed to Poseidon before embarking on sea journeys. They offered him the first fish caught, called him "the savior," and attributed their naval victory over the Persians to him. In this program, we learn how Poseidon was saved by his mother Rhea, and how he acquired his trident and used it to help his brother Zeus in his struggle against the Titans and Giants. We see some of the places where Poseidon was worshipped and meet characters in several Poseidon stories: Amphitrite, Delphinus, Polyphemus, Demeter, Arion, Pegasus, the Minotaur. We learn why he sided with the Greeks in the Trojan War, and how he punished them for their cruelty to their defeated enemy, causing Homer to write, "Awful is the fate of anyone who invokes the wrath of the gods while sailing the seas."

    Demeter: The Miracle of Fertility


    The earth is the foundation of all Greek mythology, for it was the abundance of the earth that caused the birth of the sky and the formation of the universe. This program begins in Eleusis, one of the oldest sanctuaries dedicated to Demeter and site of the Eleusinian Mysteries. We learn about Triptolemus, who taught mortals the art of agriculture, and visit Thessaly—home to the myth of Deucalion and Pyrrha, the Greek version of Noah’s Ark. We hear stories about Charon, and about Persephone’s reunion with her mother at Eleusis—whose stones are the silent witnesses to the ancient rites of spring and the orgies of autumn.

    Apollo: Light and Harmony


    The Greeks also called Apollo, Phoebus—brilliant one, perpetually reborn, who shoots darts from afar and who incorporates the radiant characteristics of the sun. In this program, we learn about Apollo’s mother, Leto; his birth on the island of Delos; his twin sister, Artemis; Python and Pythia; and the oracle of Delphi. Also discussed are Cassandra’s prediction of the fall of Troy, Apollo and the concept of spiritual cleansing, and Apollo and the lyre.
