Freedom from the Known
Freedom from the Known
Paperback      ISBN: 0060648082

Freedom from the Known is a perfect introduction to the works of Krishnamurti, as well as a source of wisdom and inspiration the reader will turn to time and time again. It looks inward to examine the nature of the self, and outward to show how society can be changed for the better.

In this classic work, Krishnamurti demonstrates how people can free themselves, radically and immediately, from the tyranny of the expected. By first changing themselves, individuals can then change the structures of their relationships, and eventually the whole structure of society.
Education and the Significance of Life
Education and the Significance of Life
1st Edition    Paperback      ISBN: 0060648767

First published in 1953, this classic Krishnamurti work demonstrates that education which does not result in deep integration of thought, feeling, and outlook is useless. Many contemporary methods of teaching emphasize slavish conformity to mass values and overstress the importance of technique; Education and the Significance of Life offers an alternative approach that stresses self-knowledge and a atmosphere of freedom and love for the child, to help create an atmosphere in which real education can take place. Education and the Significance of Life is a penetrating inquiry into the nature and requirements of the kind of education that can lead to self-fulfillment and ultimately, to world peace.

Jiddu Krishnamurti (1895 - 1986) was a world-renowned spiritual teacher. For more than fifty years he traveled widely, sharing his message with people of all ages. He is the author of numerous books.
Chop Wood, Carry Water: A Guide to Finding Spiritual Fulfillment in Everyday Life
Chop Wood, Carry Water
A Guide to Finding Spiritual Fulfillment in Everyday Life
Paperback      ISBN: 0874772095

More than a thousand years ago a Chinese Zen Master wrote:

Magical Power, Marvelous Action

Chopping Wood, Carrying Water...

The message is as true today as it was then: the greatest lessons and the profoundest heights of the spiritual path can be found in our everyday life. It is the greatest challenge for people living in contemporary society to find the spiritual aspects of working in an office, store, or factory; balancing a checkbook; raising a family; or making a relationship work. How can we make all these daily activities a part of the path? How can we apply the insights of great spiritual traditions, and our own experience, to the way we live and develop?

This book is a guide - a handbook filled with information, advice, hints, stories, inspiration, encouragement, connections, warning, and cautions, for the inner journey as we live throughout our lives.

Chop Wood, Carry Water contains much ancient wisdom, but the emphasis is on contemporary perceptions. Many of our guides have been known to humanity for millennia: they are the world's great spiritual teachers- Christ, the Buddha, Loa Tse, Confucius. Others are contemporary teacher and healers, widely recognized and respected. All offer ways to integrate the events, our focus on relationships and family, our struggle with technology, money, politics and more- into the quest for spiritual fulfillment.

Ananga-Ranga Perfumed Garden, The Classic Eastern Love Texts
Paperback      ISBN: 0892814411

Sexual frankness without a hint of guilt or prurience is the great legacy which the Eastern, and in particular Indian, traditions have given us. As an expression of human culture, and as a pillow book for the modern boudoir, the Kama Sutra of Vatsyayana the most famous work on sex ever written the Ananga-Ranga of Kalyana Malla, and Sheikh Nefzai's Perfumed Garden, set forth the principles of sensual pleasure with poetry, wisdom, and humor, celebrating love as an ecstatic expression of life's beauty.

Here, for the first time, Sir Richard Burton's translations of the classic Eastern love texts have been published in one volume.

The first Kama Sutra to be illustrated in color with a dazzling and unique collection of Indian painting and sculpture.

These erotic treatises are not sex manuals in the modern sense clinical collections of coital postures but a broader and more humane exploration of Eastern sexual customs.
The Deva Handbook: How to Work with Nature's Subtle Energies
The Deva Handbook
How to Work with Nature's Subtle Energies
Paperback      ISBN: 0892815523

When we experience the powerful force of a waterfall, the elusive beauty of a rainbow, or the stark strength of a craggy expanse of cliff many of us have perceived "something else" that goes beyond the five senses: feelings of peace, comfort, healing, and inspiration. Native traditions throughout the world have taught that these intuitive impressions are caused by the subtle forces of the living world. These forces are known by different names: angels, nature spirits, orishas, or by the Sanskrit term devas, meaning "the shining ones." The Deva Handbook guides us back to these keepers of earth wisdom. The author draws on native traditions from around the world as well as modern teachings to explore the roles, characteristics, and significance of the devas. You can learn to communicate with the devas anywhere: in a backyard garden, or near a tree in a city park. This illustrated handbook offers practical tools--including visualizations, prayers, and offerings--that will help you to get in touch with the "power spots" of nature and receive their healing energy.
