The Bhagavad Gita is a Hindu scripture written in Sanskrit language. It was written as part of the Hindu epic Mahabharata by the sage Ved Vyas, whose full name was Krishna Dvaipayana Vyasa. The scripture contains 700 verses that talk about various spiritual issues that you may come across in your life and that help in achieving liberation. "Gita" means song and "Bhagavada" means God. Together the words mean "Song of the Lord". Here Lord refers to the Hindu god, Krishna. The word "Srimada" is often added at the beginning of the name as a matter of respect, since Hindus believe that when you read the Gita, the essence of all spiritual knowledge is revealed to you. Hindus believe that the Gita was originally spoken by Lord Krishna in the holy land of Kurukshetra, the place where the Mahabharata war was fought between the feuding families, the Pandavas and the Kauravas. Set in a narrative framework, the Gita is a dialogue between the Pandava prince, Arjun and Lord Krishna, who was his charioteer during this war. If you are interested to learn about life, God, creation, birth and death, karma and dharma, the undying soul, salvation, and the real purpose of human existence, the Gita can be one of the best scriptures to satisfy all your spiritual queries. Furthermore, it is written in such a melodious and harmonic rhyming meter that it can be a wonderful listening experience. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Doron Alon.

"The holy man of our time, it seems, is not a figure like Gotama or Jesus or Mohammed, a man who could found a world religion, but a figure like Gandhi, a man who passes over by sympathetic understanding from his own religion to other religions and comes back again with new insight to his own. Passing over and coming back, it seems, is the spiritual adventure of our time. It is the adventure I want to undertake and describe in this book."-from the Preface /// Reflections on the common experiences of man as they are revealed in the writings of the Hindu-Buddhist, Islamic, and Christian traditions. In this inter-religious dialogue John Dunne shifts his standpoint to reach a sympathetic understanding of the essential message of the Eastern religions and then returns with new insight into Christianity. /// Through an examination of figures in various religions, including Gotama, Mohammed, and Gandhi, Dunne explores the possibilities of companionship with God.
Called "the first and greatest of English detective novels" by T. S. Eliot, Wilkie Collins's The Moonstone is a masterpiece of suspense. A fabulous yellow diamond becomes the dangerous inheritance of Rachel Verinder. Outside her Yorkshire country house watch the Hindu priests who have waited for many years to reclaim their ancient talisman, looted from the holy city of Somnauth. When the Moonstone disappears, the case looks simple, but in mid-Victorian England, no one is what they seem, and nothing can be taken for granted. Witnesses, suspects, and detectives each narrate the story in turn. The bemused butler, the love-stricken housemaid, the enigmatic detective Sergeant Cuff, the drug-addicted scientist - each speculate on the mystery as Collins weaves their narratives together. 1.

The Shreemad Bhagavatam is a scripture unlike any other. It is the last and greatest work of the great sage, Sri Vedavyasa, and serves as the culmination of all the Vedas and Puranas. Above all the many things it accomplishes, it tells us that God has, and continues to, incarnate in many forms to make Himself known to His children. He walks with them, talks with them, laughs with them - He lives with them. So how can we come to know Him? This is why we have the Shreemad Bhagavatam, the crown jewel of Hindu holy scripture. When it is expounded to us by a true living embodiment of the Divine like Paramahamsa Sri Swami Vishwananda, we have something incomparable to anything else - we have a firsthand experience of God Himself. Do not simply read this book. Relive every experience, every word, in the core of your heart and you will find that God doesn't exist in some far away plane, nor is He confined to the scriptures of yesteryear. He lives in the heart of every living being today. Find Him, love Him and be free.
Never Cheat a Holy Man is my memoir about the three enlightening, adventure-filled years in the mid-'60s when my family and I lived in East Pakistan. As "memsahib", my job was to supervise a Muslim all-male household workforce. When the cook warmed the toast in his armpits and chilled the chicken in the refrigerator - still alive, I realized I was not communicating adequately. I acquired new skills mediating between cook and laundryman who were at constant odds. The 1965 India-Pakistan conflict caused particular concern for my friends and me when we were held at gun point, accused of being spies by Bengali soldiers. The Hindu Holy Man's retracted blessings and getting my sari pulled off by a small boy at a village fair, were just two instances that gave me new understanding of this culture so unlike my own. Despite the poverty and disease I saw, there was much beauty, harmony, and humor to appreciate. - Joyce Mueller About the author: Joyce Mueller, now in her 90s, remembers how it felt to be a Caucasian, English-speaking, non-Muslim nurse, wife, and mother confronting a totally opposite culture. She went from scared and shocked to empathetic and appreciative. Now widowed, Mrs. Mueller lives on the southern Oregon coast. She is still writing poetry and short stories. 1. Language: English.
