Reflections on an Ageless Wisdom: A Commentary on the Mahatma Letters to A.P. Sinnett

Joy Mills

Quest Books, 2010. First edition. Hardcover. New. 16 x 24 cm. Modern Theosophy expresses the ancient wisdom tradition found in all religions. When H. P. Blavatsky, founder of the Theosophical Society in 1875, told English journalist A. P. Sinnett she had gained her paranormal knowledge from more evolved beings called the Mahatmas, Sinnett asked to communicate with them himself. The result was a remarkable correspondence carried on from 1880 to 1885 with Mahatmas Khoot Hoomi and Morya. Recorded in The Mahatma Letters to A. P. Sinnett, the answers of these Teachers form an essential part of Theosophical literature. At the time, the Letters stormed the bastions of racial and religious prejudice, and they continue to fascinate those seeking to probe the mysteries of the universe and the nature of consciousness. Here is the most comprehensive, magisterial discussion of The Mahatma Letters since they were first published in 1924. Eminent Theosophist Joy Mills bases her commentary on Vincente Hao Chin’s 1999 edition of the Letters, helpfully arranged chronologically to enable following the exposition as it originally unfolded. Mills quotes Sinnett in emphasizing that the Mahatmas’ purpose was not to put the world into possession of occult knowledge but to train those who proved qualified . . . so that they might ascend the path of spiritual progress. Her focus, then, is on not only knowledge of the magnificent Occult Science but more significantly the ethical and moral values we must embrace to be of service to the world. She offers her reflections on over 140 letters in the hope that they may prove useful to fellow-students on the journey toward the spiritual heights. May these letters call you as they have continued to call me to keep on exploring, for truly there is no other way to go! Printed Pages: 600.

Cognitive Anomalies, Consciousness and Yoga (History of Science, Philosophy and Culture in Indian Civilization, Vol. XVI, Part 1)

K. Ramakrishna Rao (Author) & D.P. Chattopadhyaya (Gen. Ed.)

Matrix Publishers, 2011. First edition. Hardcover. New. 23 X 29 cm. Cognitive Anomalies, Consciousness and Yoga is Professor Ramakrishna Rao’s magnum opus, a culmination of life-long efforts to develop a comprehensive model of the person that is inclusive of our rational, emotional and spiritual dimensions without reducing or converting one into another. Professor Rao is a psychologist for a unified understanding of human nature. His arguments move with ease from Upanishadic conceptions to current phenomenological and existential discources on the mind and from quantum mechanics and particle physics to neural correlates of consciousness. Professor Rao sets out in the book with the primary question who we are. Are we merely brain-driven machines? Is synchrony? Is this anything in us that does not fit into the material framework of the universe and calls for a paradigmatic shift in our search for a more inclusive universe? Cognitive Anomalies, consciousness and Yoga are three books in one, together they give a comprehensive picture of the person. Printed Pages: 904.

The Many Colors of Hinduism: A Thematic-Historical Introduction

Carl Olson

Rutgers University Press, 2007. First edition. Softcover. New. 16 x 24 cm. Conventional approaches to Hinduism typically stress its classical religious tradition with an emphasis on the Brahmin texts and practices. Frequently neglected are the practices of lower caste Indians, the role of women in the culture, the religious life of village folk, devotion to the deity Rama, and the Sant tradition of North India. The Many Colors of Hinduism is the first introductory text to provide a balanced view of this rich religious tradition, acknowledging the full range of its many competing and even contradictory aspects. Utilizing a thematic-historical approach, Carl Olson draws on a wide array of textual evidence, the fieldwork of anthropologists in close contact with insiders, and voices of thinkers ranging from Indologist Alf Hiltebeitel to Cambridge scholar Julius Lipner. The result is a narrative approach that offers a view of Hinduism that emulates the storytelling nature of the religion itself. Covering ancient times to the present and explaining important cultural metaphors, symbols, and narratives not generally found in other introductory textbooks, Olson offers students a new perspective of a religion that is more varied than most Westerners realize. The Many Colors of Hinduism will be essential reading for undergraduate courses in world or Asian religions. Printed Pages: 406.

Aryan Books International, 2008. First edition. Hardcover. New. 19 x 25 cm. Bashahar, situated amid the high Himalayan ranges, on the Indo-Tibetan border, is one of the most ancient states among those of the Punjab and Shimla hills. The valley remained generally secluded and peaceful and as such had been a safe refuge for many a moving tribes.

Scientific Writing: A Reader and Writer`s Guide

Jean-Luc Lebrun

Cambridge University Press/World Scientific, 2007. First edition. Softcover. New. Given that scientific material can be hard to comprehend, sustained attention and memory retention become major reader challenges. Scientific writers must not only present their science, but also work hard to generate and sustain the interest of readers. Attention-getters, sentence progression, expectation-setting, and “memory offloaders” are essential devices to keep readers and reviewers engaged. The writer needs to have a clear understanding of the role played by each part of a paper, from its eye-catching title to its eye-opening conclusion. This book walks through the main parts of a paper; that is, those parts which create the critical first impression. The unique approach in this book is its focus on the reader rather than the writer. Senior scientists who supervise staff and postgraduates can use the book to review drafts and to help with the writing as well as the science. Young researchers can find solid guidelines that reduce the confusion all new writers face. Published scientists can finally move from what feels right to what is right, identifying mistakes they thought were acceptable, and fully appreciating their responsibility: to guide the reader along carefully laid-out reading tracks. Contents • The Reading Toolkit: Require Less from Memory Sustain Attention to Ensure Continuous Reading Reduce Reading Time Keep the Reader Motivated Bridge the Knowledge Gap Set the Reader`s Expectations Set Progression Tracks for Fluid Reading Create Reading Momentum Control Reading Energy Consumption • Paper Structure and Purpose: Title: The Face of Your Paper Abstract: The Heart of Your Paper Headings/Subheadings: The Skeleton of Your Paper Introduction: The Hands of Your Paper Introduction Part II: Popular Traps Visuals: The Voice of Your Paper Conclusion: The Smile of Your Paper` Printed Pages: 244.

Between Pulpit and Pew: Folk Religion in a North Yorkshire Fishing Village

David Clark

Cambridge University Press, 2009. First edition. Softcover. New. Outside the formal teachings of the established religious institutions of many `advanced` societies, there continues to exist a rich body of `unofficial` or `folk` religious beliefs and practices. This book provides an insight into the nature of folk religion in a small fishing village in North Yorkshire. Using a combination of sociological and historical methods, David Clark first explores the impact of an official religion - Methodism - on the village in the early nineteenth century, and its subsequent place in village life. He goes on the describe the ways in which Methodism relates to a more diffuse set of folk beliefs and rituals, such as those surrounding birth and death, the transitions of the annual cycle and the rigours of the fishing economy. The result is a fascinating portrait of official and unofficial religion within one local community. It also makes an important contribution to scholarly debates about the significance of folk religion within the wider religious culture, and will be of considerable interest to teachers and students of the sociology and anthropology of religion, and of local history.

Blisters on their Feet: Tales of Internally Displaced Persons in India`s North East (Sage Studies on India`s North East Series)

Samir Kumar Das (Ed.)

Sage Publications, 2008. First edition. Hardcover. New. This book is a comprehensive study on India’s North East where violence, development and natural disasters that lead to eviction and displacement of `citizens` within a country produce more Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) than refugees. Dwelling upon this debate, the book discusses the two major sources of displacement, conflict and development, and presents a compendium of case studies drawn from Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Manipur and Tripura—the four worst-affected states of the region. The Introduction to the book highlights the silenced aspects of displacement, drawing upon the implications of the case studies presented and bringing them to the centre of any future theoretical enquiry into the society and politics of the region. Blisters on their Feet: Tales of Internally Displaced Persons in India’s North East provides contrasting perspectives on what is often considered a simple answer to displacement, and views the phenomenon as a logical culmination of a package of policies initiated and undertaken in the region, particularly in the age of globalization. The case studies display rare insight, human rights sensitivity and commitment, sans any theoretical pretensions. The book serves as a useful key in placing the North East in the newly emergent discourse on displacement and brings it to the forefront of the public agenda. It offers important insights for policy makers and analysts, research scholars, human rights activists, lawyers, developmental specialists, students and socially concerned citizens.

Food for Policy: Reforming Agriculture

Arpita Mukherjee,Surabhi Mittal

Cambridge University Press/Foundation Books, 2008. First edition. Hardcover. New. Food for Policy – Reforming Agriculture is the first book of its kind to highlight the reforms needed to achieve a ‘second Green Revolution` which will then make way for an ‘evergreen` revolution in India . Although there has been much discussion on reforming the Indian agriculture sector and making it globally competitive, it continues to be plagued by various constraints and the reform process has been extremely slow. This book is a compilation of articles by experts who provide comprehensive solutions for the Indian agriculture sector. A unique feature of this book is that it builds on the existing work on reforms and trade in agriculture while focussing on the gaps in the current literature. There are very few books today that try to address issues such as agri-business and non-farm employment. Food for Policy – Reforming Agriculture fills this lacuna by covering a wide range of areas including agriculture trade policy, price policy, infrastructure development and supply chain efficiency. Food for Policy – Reforming Agriculture will appeal to academics, policy-makers, the agro-business industry, investors, agriculture experts, students and general readers who are keen on being acquainted with the Indian agricultural scenario and its reform requirements. Contents Foreword Acknowledgement Abbreviations Chapter 1: Indian Agriculture: Issues and Challenges Chapter 2: Indian Agriculture and Policy in Transition Chapter 3: Reshaping Agriculture Trade Policy Chapter 4: Commodity Exchange: Harbinger of a ‘Second Green Revolution` Chapter 5: Agricultural Infrastructure in India : Current Situation, Challenges and Potential for Expansion Chapter 6: Rural Non Farm Sector: Employment and Investment Opportunities Chapter 7: Issues in Supply Chain Management in Indian Agriculture Chapter 8: Indo-US Collaboration in Agri-Business Printed Pages: 274.

Why Translation Matters

Edith Grossman

Orient BlackSwan Pvt. Ltd, 2011. Hardcover. New. 14 x 21 cm. Why Translation Matters argues for the cultural importance of translation, and for a more encompassing and nuanced appreciation of the translator’s role. As the acclaimed translator Edith Grossman writes in her introduction, “My intention is to stimulate a new consideration of an area of literature that is too often ignored, misunderstood, or misrepresented.” For Grossman, translation has a transcendent importance: “Translation not only plays its important traditional role as the means that allows us access to literature originally written in one of the countless languages we cannot read, but it also represents a concrete literary presence with the crucial capacity to ease and make more meaningful our relationships to those with whom we may not have had a connection before. Translation always helps us to know, to see from a different angle, to attribute new value to what once may have been unfamiliar. As nations and as individuals, we have a critical need for that kind of understanding and insight. The alternative is unthinkable.” Throughout the four chapters of this bracing volume, Grossman’s belief in the crucial significance of the translator’s work, as well as her rare ability to explain the intellectual sphere that she inhabits as interpreter of the original text, inspires and provokes the reader to engage with translation in an entirely new way.

Saundaryalahari of Snakaracarya: (The Upsurging Billow of Beauty)

Nataraja Guru

D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd., 2008. 2nd edition. Hardcover. New. 15 x 23 cm. The Saundaryalahari has fascinated and puzzled generations of scholars and laypersons; subject to continuing study and debate, till today, such details as the authorship of the 100 verses named the Saundaryalahari remain a matter of contention, particularly among scholars. While some attribute it to Sankara, others argue that the Saundaryalahari’s verses in praise of the Devi cannot have been authored by this staunch Vedantin; some argue that it`s value is essentially in the realm of what is loosely called ""tantra,"" while others extend the significance of the Saundaryalahari to include the preoccupations of Vedanta. Nataraja Guru is unequivocal in his belief that none other than Sankara could have composed this masterpiece of mystical poetry and identifies internal evidence in the verses themselves to support this view. The detailed commentary views the Saundaryalahari as Advaita Vedanta itself. The absolute Joy of Advaita is presented in a pictorial language, subjectively as ananda, and objectively as saundnrya.

Fundamentals of Soil Dynamics and Earthquake Engineering

Bharat Bhushan Prasad

PHI Learning. First edition. Softcover. New. The majority of the cases of earthquake damage to buildings, bridges, and other retaining structures are influenced by soil and ground conditions. To address such phenomena, Soil Dynamics and Earthquake Engineering is the appropriate discipline. This textbook presents the fundamentals of Soil Dynamics, combined with the basic principles, theories and methods of Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering. It is designed for senior undergraduate and postgraduate students in Civil Engineering & Architecture. The text will also be useful to young faculty members, practising engineers and consultants. Besides, teachers will find it a useful reference for preparation of lectures and for designing short courses in Soil Dynamics and Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering. The book first presents the theory of vibrations and dynamics of elastic system as well as the fundamentals of engineering seismology. With this background, the readers are introduced to the characteristics of Strong Ground Motion, and Deterministic and Probabilistic seismic hazard analysis. The risk analysis and the reliability process of geotechnical engineering are presented in detail.

Jim Corbett

Oxford University Press, 2011. 5th or later edition. Hardcover. New. 15 x 23 cm. THE JIM CORBETT OMNIBUS The Man-eaters of kumaon; the Temple Tiger and more man-eaters of kumaon; The man-eating Leopard of Rudraprayag Poignant and evocative, Jim Corbett’s riveting accounts of his adventures in the foothills of the Himalayas have kept generations of readers enthralled. The Jim Corbett Omnibus brings together three eternal favourities from his thrilling tales of encounters with man-eaters. Beginning with the spine-tingling excitement of his first man-eater hunt in Champawat, this selection presents stories of Corbett hunting down notorious man-eaters in the Kumaon region including the ‘Temple Tiger’ blessed by the local deity, and a chilling account of his relentless pursuit of the ‘evil-spirited’ ‘Man-eating Leopard of Rudraprayag.’ Dramatic yet reflective, these stories bring to life the colours of the jungle, and are touched by Corbett’s deep sympathy and concern for the village people, their traditions, and folklore. Vividly illustrated, this classic collection will appeal to staunch Corbett lovers and to anyone concerned with wildlife and the environment. Printed Pages: 610.
