Description:
Condition: clean copy.Content:Exploring patterns of popular devotion to the cult of the saints in b oth late imperial and early Soviet Russia, the author argues for an interpretation of Orthodoxy as a proactive faith grounded in the needs and realities of everyday life. This book straddles the customary historiographical dividing line of 1917, illustrating how the devotional practices associated with the cult of the saints evolved from the mid-19th century to the end of the first decade of Soviet power; secondly the book underscores the role of materiality in Russian Orthodox religious practices and emphasizes that anthropologists of religion have described as the sacrality of place.300 pages, notes, selected bibliography, index.

Description:
Sound clean trade paperback. In stock in our shop. Postage will be adjusted for BC orders. In store pick up available. The eccentric Bankei (1622–1693) has long been an underground hero in the world of Zen. At a time when Zen was becoming overly formalized in Japan, he stressed its relevance to everyday life, insisting on the importance of naturalness and spontaneity. This volume presents his teachings—as refreshing and iconoclastic today as they were three hundred years ago—in a fluent translation by Peter Haskel, accompanied by a vivid account of Bankei's life and times, illustrations, and extensive notes for the scholar."Mr. Haskel has furnished us with an accurate and polished translation that fully captures the lively colloquial style of the original. The late Professor Hakeda has rendered invaluable assistance in resolving many linguistic problems and in furnishing important insights into the text itself." —Philip Yampolsky

Description:
Sound clean copy read once. Zen is often considered difficult. This is a serious misunderstanding, says Sekkei Harada, a Teaching Master from Hosshin-ji, a Zen temple in central Japan. In this collection of talks on Zen that were given in the United States and Germany, Harada sets out to explain, in plain and lucid language, the concepts of Buddhism and the principles of Zen. Open the book to any section and the underlying message of the master's teaching is quickly apparent. In order to attain true peace of mind, it is imperative that we forget the small self--the grasping, demanding "me." This is by no means easy, but if we succeed, we will realize the true Self--the Self without beginning or end, which transcends time and space and is one with all things.
Harada's message is timely as well as important to people living in this present world of chaos and conflict. In addition to explaining the principles of Zen, the book includes detailed instructions on the practice of zazen, or "sitting Zen."… Read more

The author serizes upon a moment in Bronte's adolescence that ignited her determination to reject poverty and obscurity: while working at a girls' school in Brussels. Bronte fell in love with her married professor, Constantin Heger, a man who treated her as 'nothing special to him at all.' She channeled heer torment into her first attempts at a novel and resolved to bring it to the world's attention. This is a groundbreaking view of the beloved writer as a young woman ahead of her time.466 pages, notes, selected bibliography, index.
