The Book of One: The Ancient Wisdom of Advaita
The Book of One
The Ancient Wisdom of Advaita
Paperback      ISBN: 1846943477
A comprehensive, yet entertaining introduction to Advaita, the non-dual teaching which provides a completely reasonable explanation for who we are and the nature of the universe. There are many `self-help' approaches promising enlightenment and happiness but most are illogical and lack any proven capability. Advaita has a guru-disciple tradition stretching back for several thousand years and can guarantee the sincere seeker a progressive path to self-realization. A 21st Century treatment of this ancient eastern philosophy, this book addresses all of the issues that are covered by both traditional teachers from the lineage of Shankara, and by modem `satsang teaching' and Direct Path methods stemming from Ramana Maharshi and Krishna Menon. Topics are explained in an accessible and readable manner, using amusing quotations and stories along with an abundance of metaphors from a wide variety of sources. Some of the most difficult concepts are clarified, whilst recognizing that this knowledge is ultimately beyond language or intellectual understanding. The Book of One is perhaps the most accessible, articulate and relevant book on the nature of non-duality. "An updated edition of Dennis' Advaitic treasure trove. It benefits from nine years further research into the traditional roots of Advaita-Vedanta. This new edition will become essential for students, seekers, scholars, and cultural historians." Greg Goode, author of `Standing as Awareness' "...a masterful and profoundly insightful survey of Advaita Vedanta Teaching and the Contemporary Scene" Alan Jacobs, President Ramana Maharshi Foundation UK "The Book of One' takes the reader step by step on an intellectual inquiry into the truth of oneself. It provides a critical examination of the meaning and purpose of one's life" Dr Kuntimaddi Sadananda, AchArya at Washington Chinmaya Mission

The Book of Tea
The Book of Tea
Hardcover      ISBN: 4770030142
The Book of Tea has served for more than a century as one of the most perceptive introductions to Asian life and thought in English. Publication of the book was a pioneering effort in the cultural bridge-building between East and West. Kakuzo Okakura perceived chanoyu-literally, "the way of tea"-as a form of spiritual culture, a disipline that transforms itself into the Art of Life. In writing of chanoyu, his concern was the broad current of Asian culture flowing eastward from India, and its potential contribution to the culture of all humankind. Buddhism, Taoism, Zen, and Chinese and Japanese aesthetics are discussed, giving voice to traditional Asian values and ideals that had been little recognized in the West. Thus, he sought to convey the spirit of chanoyu as a crystallization of the cultural life of the East.
The Book of Tea
The Book of Tea
Paperback      ISBN: 0141191848
Zen and the art of tea-the classic book about the Japanese tea ceremony that is as much a guide to life. Ritualized, romantic, and historically rich, the tea ceremony is the creation of something beautiful out of the everyday. Originally written in English more than a hundred years ago to be read aloud at Isabella Stewart Gardner's famous salon, The Book of Tea presents the meeting of East and West in a teacup. It explores Asian culture through the history and aestheticism-or "teaism"-of the tea ceremony and also suggests a deep connection between beauty and war, and between flowers and social mores. In its formality, attention to detail, and celebration of beauty and harmony, the tea ceremony encapsulates the Japanese view of life-in fact, the art of life.

Can the Mind Be Quiet?: Living, Learning and Meditation
Can the Mind Be Quiet?
Living, Learning and Meditation
Paperback      ISBN: 1786782758
One of the greatest thinkers of the 20th century describes a series of his encounters around the world with a wide variety of spiritual seekers. Their questions and his answers explore the nature of the lived experience, the details of profound self-inquiry and how to live a fulfilled life. These 60 chapters, with titles like "Solitude Means Freedom", "All Seeking is from Emptiness and Fear", and "Life is an Extraordinarily Beautiful Movement", carry the essence of Krishnamurti's teaching style and profoundest wisdom. Each one reflects an encounter K had at different times during the sixties and seventies. It opens with a poetic account of the location where the encounter took place, plus occasionally a description of the seeker that K has met. The chapter then moves back and forth between the seeker and the teacher, giving the reader plenty to reflect upon. This is previously unpublished material. Readers will be captivated by the luminous prose and the piercing insight. The style is enigmatic and poetical but each chapter contains more than enough for the reader to consider, perhaps as a daily practice. In the style of Paulo Coelho they have the quality of fables, but the teaching is far more profound and challenging.

The Central Philosophy of Tibet: A Study and Translation of Jey Tsong Khapa's
The Central Philosophy of Tibet
A Study and Translation of Jey Tsong Khapa's "Essence of True Eloquence"
Paperback      ISBN: 0691020671
This is the paperback edition of the first full study, translation, and critical annotation of the Essence of True Eloquence by Jey Tsong Khapa (1357-1419), universally acknowledged as the greatest Tibetan philosopher. Robert Thurman's translation and introduction present a strain of Indian Buddhist thought emphasizing the need for both critical reason and contemplative realization in the attainment of enlightenment. This book was originally published under the title Tsong Khapa's Speech of Gold in the "Essence of True Eloquence." "I am very happy that Tsong Khapa's masterpiece of Tibetan Buddhist philosophy has been translated into English, and can now be studied by Western philosophers and practitioners of Buddhism. It has long been one of my favorite works, and I hope that others will appreciate its deep thought and lucid insights as we have for centuries in Tibet."--From the foreword by the Dalai Lama "The first part [of the book], an extensive introduction, can stand on its own as an insightful and incisive study of Tibetan philosophy, its roots in India, and its relevance to a twentieth-century Western audience. The second part translates Tsong Khapa's text.... The quality of both the translation and the introductory essay makes this book a valuable contribution to the study of the central way."--Karen Lang, Journal of Asian Studies
