Listen to this second edition!

Architectural Guide Yangon presents around one hundred memorable buildings from Myanmar´s historical capital. Following decades of international isolation, the city´s vast heritage remains largely, surprisingly and spectacularly intact. Rangoon - as it was known under the British - was a melting pot of British India. Vivid traces of this legacy are everywhere, especially in the city´s Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Jewish and Muslim houses of worship that often stand side by side, down town, in Yangon´s tightly-gridded streets. Since the country´s independence from the British in 1948, successive authoritarian regimes have also stamped the cityscape with their legacies. Today Yangon is a bustling and busy city in flux, at the frontier of Myanmar´s rapid opening to the wider world. Yangon´s urban fabric deserves a systematic guide that nourishes every visitor and resident´s shared fascination for the city and its history, offering countless anecdotes and notes on architectural detail.

The word kundalini refers to an energy that everyone has within them, but that usually lies dormant. What this means is that the majority of people don´t feel this energy and, much of the time, don´t even know it exists. However, in a few rare cases, this energy can come to life, getting activated and aroused. Depending on the person and their knowledge, readiness, and viewpoint, this can be a joyous occasion or something that disturbs and frightens them a bit. People who intentionally awaken their kunalini will have a positive reaction to this phenomenon. The word kundalini is a Sanskrit word which translates to the word ´´coiled´´, similar to the posture a snake adopts when it lies on the ground. This energy has not been recognized or acknowledged by science in the medical field and even among meditative experts and longtime teachers. The definition is rarely ever fully understood. However, this phenomenon is thoroughly discussed and mentioned in important texts about tantra and yoga, including both Hindu and Buddhist sources. Since this word has been used so widely, a lot of people think of it as the material of legends or simply a useful metaphor for personal growth or transformation. Some have even defined it as a person´s creative potential. While this may be the case for some, who can look to symbolism to gain meaning in kundalini, it´s a very real and quite literal experience for others. 1. Language: English.

A clear-cut guide to the auric field and how to develop it. The most agreed upon origins of the word ´´aura´´ can be traced back to Greek and Latin roots with the meanings ´´breeze´´, ´´breath´´, ´´wind´´, or ´´air´´. In the mid-19th century, the term started to take on a different connotation in Europe, and was used to describe the ´´characteristic impression´´ made by a person. A few years later, spiritualists adopted it to convey the subtle field of energy that radiates off beings. Hindu scholars insist that ´´aura´´ actually comes from Sanskrit, and refers to the spokes in a wheel. The imagery of a spoke originating from a hub is a parallel to how the aura radiates from the physical body. For the average person, the aura extends approximately three to five feet from the borders of the physical body. It is densest at the section closest to the flesh, and gradually becomes more transparent and indistinct the farther away it goes. It can be described as a cloud or flame that gradually fades out of the field of vision. During the course of the book we will explore: The nature of the human aura and its attributes How the auric field plays a part in your spiritual evolution The different layers and colors of the aura and their meanings How to start sensing auras How you can learn to see them Cleansing your field of negative energy Strengthening and maintaining good auric health And more!
