Easing into the Bhagavad Gita is the fourth book in the growing Easing Into Collection. Previously part of Easing into the Bhagavad Gita and Patanjali´s Yoga Sutras, this is a newly edited and updated short introduction to what is sometimes called the Hindu Bible. The work features 10 great ideas that define the core meaning of this rich piece of literature. Each chapter poses five questions designed to stimulate group discussion or journal writing, making the work useful in both community settings and for home-based comparative religion study while not overwhelming the curious comparative religion beginner. Ten original poetic responses round out this offering, creating ready-made invocations or closing words. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Rosemary Watson.

The Bhagavad Gita: The Song of God Retold in Simplified English is the latest title in the Essential Wisdom Library. This unique edition of the timeless epic is designed to be accessible for readers without any prior experience of Hinduism. Not simply a translation of the original, Viljoen has simplified and restated the Gita´s complex ideas, so that a first-time reader can fully appreciate the scope and beauty of this magnificent Indian classic. Written in concise, modern language the retelling vividly captures the power and depth of the original work. Part of the Mahabharata, the Gita is a dialogue between Prince Arjuna and Lord Krishna. Its verses contain some of the key ideas of Hindu philosophy-Dharma, Moksha, and various yogic practices. Originally written well over a thousand years ago, the Gita has proven to be a timeless source of wisdom, inspiring philosophers and revolutionaries alike in the millennia since it was written. In addition to the retelling of the text, this edition includes a character list, a glossary of important terms, and chapters exploring the back-story from the Mahabharata and the impact and meaning of the Bhagavad Gita itself. The Bhagavad Gita is an approachable way for today´s readers to engage with one of history´s richest spiritual epics.

Salafi-Jihadism: The History of an Idea , Hörbu...

No topic has gripped the public imagination so dramatically as the spectre of global jihadism. While much has been said about the way jihadists behave, their ideology remains poorly understood. Shiraz Maher charts the intellectual underpinnings of Salafi-jihadism from its origins in the mountains of the Hindu Kush to the jihadist insurgencies of the 1990s and the 9/11 wars. His groundbreaking introduction to Salafi-jihadism recalibrates our understanding of the ideas underpinning one of the most destructive political philosophies of our time. 1. Language: English.

Buddha, Volume 01: Kapilavastu
10,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

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.

The Eisner and Harvey Winner In this fourth volume of the award-winning graphic novel biography, Buddha slowly discovers that his destiny lies in a path not readily available to him. With fellow ascetics Dhepa who has complete faith in the purifying quality of painful physical ordeals, and Assaji, who can predict everyone´s death to the hour, Buddha travels through the kingdom of Magadha into the Forest of Uruvela, where The Middle Path and Enlightenment wait beyond a series of death-defying trials.
