The Second Coming of Christ
The Resurrection of the Christ Within You
Paperback      ISBN: 0876125577
The hardcover edition of The Second Coming of Christ ($58.00 ISBN:9780876125557) was printed in 2004 and has sold over 45,000 copies. In Fall 2007 we published a smaller work of extracts from The Second Coming of Christ, titled The Yoga of Jesus, to function both as a stand alone book and to cross-promote the larger work. The result has been a resounding success with sales of The Yoga of Jesus reaching 20,000 in just over six months, and sales of The Second Coming of Christ increasing as planned. With sales momentum of both titles strong, this seemed like an ideal time to publish a low cost paperback edition. Yogananda's unique perspective on the real meaning of Jesus' teachings, takes the reader on a revelatory journey, verse by verse, through the four Gospels. Dispelling centuries old misconceptions and dogma, this monumental work is destined to leave an indelible mark on the way the world views the teachings of Jesus Christ.
In the Tradition of Moses and Mohammed: Jewish and Arab Folktales
In the Tradition of Moses and Mohammed
Jewish and Arab Folktales
Hardcover      ISBN: 1568211279
A collection of Jewish and Arabian tales published together in one volume serves, says its author, as a "metaphor for the coexistence of Arabs and Jews." Dr. Blanche L. Serwer-Bernstein, a psychotherapist and former professor at Boston University, has selected forty Arabian and Jewish folktales that capture the imagination and represent the experiences and wisdom of the cultures out of which they have emerged. The two sets of stories in this book are different in many ways. The customs, humor, and countless details differ from one people to the next. Yet Jews and Arabs, whose imagination and creativity gave birth to these tales, share not only biblical roots but also a remarkable coexistence in Spain during a golden period from 700 to 1000 C.E. This collection is the result of extensive research at the Israel Folklore Archives and in libraries in Jerusalem and Haifa, as well as the New York Public Library and the library of Harvard University. Of the forty tales in this volume, twenty-two are Jewish tales and were taken from literary and oral sources. They include stories of witches and demons, tales of Chelm - legendary city of fools - and folktales told by post-World War II immigrants to Israel from Russia, Iraq, Kurdistan, Poland, Hungary, and elsewhere. The Arabian tales come from many corners of the Arab world and include tales about changes in men, tales of humor and entertainment, and stories that the author describes as reflecting a kaleidoscope of human characteristics. A volume that is educational, entertaining, and inspirational, In the Tradition of Moses and Mohammed is also a prayer, urging us to hope that one day Arab and Jew will live together as peacefully as these tales do.

The Science and Practice of Humility: The Path to Ultimate Freedom
The Science and Practice of Humility
The Path to Ultimate Freedom
1st Edition    Paperback      ISBN: 1620553635
"Humility, being open and receptive to all experience, is the key to becoming one with the spontaneous patterns of the universe. Integrates classic teachings of Hinduism and Buddhism with principles of quantum physics to reveal the science of the enlightened masters. Reveals how we are each capable of shifting from the aggressive path of the warrior to the humble path of the sage. Explains how the key to catching the current acceleration of conscious evolution is humility. From Krishna and Lao-tzu to Buddha and Jesus, each enlightened master discovered how being receptive to all experience was the key to becoming one with the universe and its spontaneous patterns of order and chaos. Revealing humility as the purest expression of this receptivity, Jason Gregory integrates classic teachings of Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, and Hermeticism with principles from quantum physics to explain the science of humility as practiced by the ancient masters. The author shows how, driven by fear, the human mind creates the ego. In its greedy and arrogant quest to protect the self and its desires, the ego forges the illusion of separation, weaving complex patterns of reality that shield us from our unity with all beings and result in attitudes of aggression, selfishness, and competition. He reveals how the iconic clash between this complex, aggressive "path of the warrior" and the simple "path of the sage" is reflected in the polarized state of the modern world. Yet this state also reflects the accelerating wave of conscious evolution we are now experiencing. The key to catching this evolutionary wave is humility: the reversal of complexity into simplicity, the ancient science of mental alchemy that represents the Great Work of Eternity"--
