Osamu Tezuka´s vaunted storytelling genius, consummate skill at visual expression, and warm humanity blossom fully in his eight-volume epic of Siddhartha´s life and times. Tezuka evidences his profound grasp of the subject by contextualizing the Buddha´s ideas; the emphasis is on movement, action, emotion, and conflict as the prince Siddhartha runs away from home, travels across India, and questions Hindu practices such as ascetic self-mutilation and caste oppression. Rather than recommend resignation and impassivity, Tezuka´s Buddha predicates enlightenment upon recognizing the interconnectedness of life, having compassion for the suffering, and ordering one´s life sensibly. Philosophical segments are threaded into interpersonal situations with ground-breaking visual dynamism by an artist who makes sure never to lose his readers´ attention. Tezuka himself was a humanist rather than a Buddhist, and his magnum opus is not an attempt at propaganda. Hermann Hesse´s novel or Bertolucci´s film is comparable in this regard; in fact, Tezuka´s approach is slightly irreverent in that it incorporates something that Western commentators often eschew, namely, humor.

Major Hindu communities also exist around the world. Dispelling many of the myths and mysteries surrounding this ancient world religion, Hinduism, Fourth Edition provides readers with an up-to-date understanding of the interconnection of religion and politics in India, problems facing Hindu communities in the diaspora, and American movements in Hinduism.

Raja Yoga contains transcripts of lectures by Vivekananda on ´´Raja Yoga´´, his interpretation of Patanjali´s Yoga Sutras, and a ´´rather free translation´´ of Patanjali´s Yoga Sutras plus Vivekananda´s commentaries, which also was a series of talks. It presents Vivekananda´s understanding and interpretation of Patanjali´s Yoga Sutras, ´´and a selection of hathayoga teachings on the basis of the beliefs that he shared with his students.´´ These included elements from traditional Hinduism, but also ideas from Western science, Idealism, and ´´the Neo-Vedantic esotericism of the Brahmo Samaj and Western occultism,´´ including mesmerism and ´´American Harmonial religion´´. Vivekananda adapted traditional Hindu ideas and religiosity to suit the needs and understandings of his Western audiences, who were especially attracted by and familiar with Western esoteric traditions and movements like Transcendentalism and New Thought. An important element in his adaptation of Hindu religiosity was the introduction of his four yoga´s model, which includes raja yoga, his interpretation of Patanjali´s Yoga Sutras, which offered a practical means to realize the divine force within which is central to modern Western esotericism. The other three yogas are the classical karma yoga, bhakti yoga, and jnana yoga. Vivekananda´s interpretation of Patanjali´s Yoga Sutras is mostly based on the part on astanga yoga, the eight limbs of yoga described in the Sadhana Pada or practice part. According to De Michelis, Vivekananda´s ideas on raja yoga mainly consists of two different models, with sometimes a third ´´mode of thought´´. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Barry J. Peterson.

The Bhagavad Gita, often referred to as the Gita, is a 700-verse Hindu scripture in Sanskrit that is part of the Hindu epic Mahabharata.The Gita is set in a narrative framework of a dialogue between Pandava prince Arjuna and his guide and charioteer Krishna. At the start of the Dharma Yudhha (righteous war) between Pandavas and Kauravas, Arjuna is filled with moral dilemma and despair about the violence and death the war will cause. He wonders if he should renounce and seeks Krishna´s counsel, whose answers and discourse constitute The Bhagadvad Gita. Krishna counsels Arjuna to ´´fulfill his Kshatriya (warrior) duty to uphold the Dharma´´ through ´´selfless action´´. The Krishna-Arjuna dialogue cover a broad range of spiritual topics, touching upon ethical dilemmas and philosophical issues that go far beyond the war Arjuna faces.The Bhagavad Gita presents a synthesis of Hindu ideas about dharma, theistic bhakti, and the yogic paths to moksha. The synthesis presents four paths to spirituality - jnana, bhakti, karma, and raja yogas. These incorporate ideas from the Samkhya-Yoga and Vedanta philosophies. 1. Language: English.

The Mahabharata is one of the two major Sanskrit epics of ancient India. It is an epic narrative of the Kurukshetra War and the fates of the Kauravas and the Pandava princes as well as containing philosophical and devotional material, such as a discussion of the four goals of life. Here we have Bhishma Parva, the sixth, featuring first part of the great battle of the Kurukshetra War with Bhishma as commander for the Kauravas. Vyasa is a revered figure in Hindu traditions. He is a kala-Avatar or part-incarnation of God Vishnu. Vyasa is sometimes conflated by some Vaishnavas with Badarayana, the compiler of the Vedanta Sutras and considered to be one of the seven Chiranjivins. He is also the fourth member of the Rishi Parampara of the Advaita Guru Parampara of which Adi Shankara is the chief proponent.
A left-leaning judge liberates four of the most dangerous al-Qaeda terrorists from Guantanamo Bay and the CIA field officers track them back to Pakistan´s northwest frontier mountain range. But the men vanish and rejoin the dark and mysterious forces trained by Osama bin Laden high in the Hindu Kush. These are men with hatred for the United States and Great Britain, and they are sworn to hit back at the USA, which imprisoned so many of their high command. They know there is only one man who can stop them--retired Navy SEAL Lt. Commander Mack Bedford--and he is called in to assist on one of the most highly classified missions ever launched from CIA headquarters. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Charles Leggett.
