God Talks with Arjuna: The Bhagavad Gita
52,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The Bhagavad Gita is India´s most sacred textthe Hindu ´´Bible.´´ Yogananda´s translation and commentary brings a unique and deeply penetrating insight into this great scripture, and is widely regarded as one of the most comprehensive books available on the science and philosophy of Yoga. God Talks With Arjuna explains the Bhagavad Gita´s profoundest spiritual, psychological, and metaphysical truths, long obscured by metaphor and allegory. Yogananda takes Lord Krishna´s counsel to the warrior Arjuna and applies it to our everyday struggles with the human ego. Our greatest battle he explains, like Arjuna´s, takes place within our own minds as we fight our doubts, fears, negative habits, self-defeating thoughts, and erroneous thinking. Appealing to scholar and general reader alike, there is no other Gita on the market as attractive, and comprehensive.

Krishna´s Lineage: The Harivamsha of Vyasa´s Ma...
31,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The Harivamsha, the final part of the Sanskrit Mahabharata, is a powerhouse of Hindu mythology. Its main business is to supply narrative details about the great god Vishnu´s avatar Krishna Vasudeva, who has been a comparatively minor character up to now, despite having taken centre stage in the Bhagavad Gita. It puts Vishnu´s manifestation as Krishna in its cosmic context and details Krishna´s exploits in childhood and maturity. Presenting a wide variety of exciting stories in a poetic register that makes extensive use of natural imagery, the Harivamsha is a neglected literary gem and an ideal starting-point for readers new to Indian literature.

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.

I came to know that most of my fan´s brains got fried after reading my novels ´´The God of Dirty Things: Bicker Prize Winner 2017´´, ´´Things That Can and Cannot be Screwed´´, ´´Broken Banana´´, ´´The Hanging Of Faizal Guru´´, ´´The Shape of The Breast´´, etc. My fans are no longer able to live with religious Hindus peacefully. They are getting offended at anything remotely related to Hindu religion. This is hampering my fan´s physical and mental health. Unfortunately it is neither possible to avoid 80 crore Hindus, nor can we deport them to Andaman Islands. Hence I wrote this novel to help my fans get ´´reverse brainwash´´. After reading this book, my fans may start treating Hindus as human beings. I would also like to apologize to all my fans for my past misdeeds. Jai Hind.

Demian
10,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

2011 Reprint of 1948 Edition. Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. The main character of this classic novel, Emil Sinclair, is a young boy raised in a bourgeois home, amidst what is described as a Scheinwelt, a play on words that means ´´world of light´´ as well as ´´world of illusion´´. Emil´s entire existence can be summarized as a struggle between two worlds: the show world of illusion (related to the Hindu concept of maya) and the real world, the world of spiritual truth. In the course of the novel, accompanied and prompted by his mysterious classmate ´Max Demian´, he detaches from and revolts against the superficial ideals of the world of appearances and eventually awakens into a realization of self. The novel refers to the idea of Gnosticism, particularly the god Abraxas, showing the influence of Carl Jung´s psychology. According to Hesse, the novel is a story of Jungian individuation, the process of opening up to one´s unconsciousness.

Best-selling author Rick Riordan introduces this adventure by Roshani Chokshi about twelve-year-old Aru Shah, who has a tendency to stretch the truth in order to fit in at school. While her classmates are jetting off to family vacations in exotic locales, she´ll be spending her autumn break at home, in the Museum of Ancient Indian Art and Culture, waiting for her mom to return from her latest archeological trip. Is it any wonder that Aru makes up stories about being royalty, traveling to Paris, and having a chauffeur? One day, three schoolmates show up at Aru´s doorstep to catch her in a lie. They don´t believe her claim that the museum´s Lamp of Bharata is cursed, and they dare Aru to prove it. Just a quick light, Aru thinks. Then she can get herself out of this mess and never ever fib again. But lighting the lamp has dire consequences. She unwittingly frees the Sleeper, an ancient demon whose duty it is to awaken the God of Destruction. Her classmates and beloved mother are frozen in time, and it´s up to Aru to save them. The only way to stop the demon is to find the reincarnations of the five legendary Pandava brothers, protagonists of the Hindu epic poem, the Mahabharata, and journey through the Kingdom of Death. But how is one girl in Spider-Man pajamas supposed to do all that?
