A Letter to a Hindu: Leo Tolstoy

Fearless takes you deep into SEAL Team SIX and straight to the heart of one of its most legendary operators. When Navy SEAL Adam Brown woke up on March 17, 2010, he didn’t know he would die that night in the Hindu Kush Mountains of Afghanistan - but he was ready: In a letter to his children, not meant to be seen unless the worst happened, he wrote, ´´I’m not afraid of anything that might happen to me on this earth, because I know no matter what, nothing can take my spirit from me.” Long before Adam Brown became a member of the elite SEAL Team SIX - the counterterrorism unit that took down Osama bin Laden - he was a fun-loving country boy from Hot Springs, Arkansas, whose greatest goal had been to wear his high school’s football jersey. An undersized daredevil, prone to jumping off roofs into trees and off bridges into lakes, Adam was a kid who broke his own bones but would never break a promise to his parents. But after high school, Adam fell in with the wrong crowd, and his family watched as his appetite for risk dragged him into a downward spiral that eventually landed him in jail. Battling his inner demons on a last-chance road to redemption, Adam had one goal: to become the best of the best - a US Navy SEAL. An absorbing chronicle of heroism and humanity, Fearless presents an indelible portrait of a highly trained warrior who would enter a village with weapons in hand to hunt terrorists, only to come back the next day with an armload of shoes and meals for local children. It is a deeply personal, revealing glimpse inside the SEAL Team SIX brotherhood that also shows how these elite operators live out the rest of their lives, away from danger, as husbands, fathers and friends. Fearless is the story of a man of extremes, whose courage and determination was fueled by faith, family, and the love of a woman. It’s about a man who waged a war against his own worst impulses and persevered to reac 1. Language: English. Narrator: Paul Michael.

In all mystical traditions, a tremendous amount of respect is given to the spoken and written word. What you say could be the difference between abundance and poverty. What you say can be the difference between health and illness. Words Are Powerful. In the Buddhist and Hindu traditions, Seed Mantras are used extensively. In fact, they are the backbone of meditation practice in these traditions. Mantras are chanted thousands upon thousands of times daily by individuals who have become intoxicated by the bliss these mantras can induce. In ancient Egypt, Isis was known to be the embodiment of magical power: her use of words of power was so potent that RA, the creator God himself, needed her help. In the Kabalistic traditions, the backbone of everything is the word. Whole books such as the Sepher Yezirah are dedicated to the power of letters and words and how God used them to create the universe. A select group of master kabbalists used word and letter permutations to change events in time and the very fabric of the universe. In Christianity, as summarized in the John 1:1, the word is all-powerful. In fact, the Word Is God. The Seed mantras presented in this book are no exception; they are very powerful Hindu seed mantras. Millions of people use these mantras to bring abundance, love and so much more into their lives. These ancient mantras have stood the test of time and their power is infinite in scope. When you chant any mantra, you change your bodily and spiritual vibration, this change in vibration is immediate, you do not need to wait for the energy to be activated. It is, however, with constant practice that these energies become manifest in physical form; although, often times it can be almost immediate. The Mantras in this book can be used to improve all areas of your life: Financial abundance. Attract Love. Attract Health. Attract Peace of Mind. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Doron Alon.

Revolutionary, philosopher, litterateur, and seer, Sri Aurobindo remains one of the brightest minds India has ever had. This book captures the evolution of his thought through excerpts from his political articles and speeches, essays, talks with and letters to disciples and public messages - presented chronologically. It includes his views on Jawaharlal Nehru and Subhas Chandra Bose; his doubts about Gandhi’s method to attain freedom and insistence on Ahimsa; and his very distinctive contribution to the nascent Nationalist Movement. Both prophetic of the challenges to come India’s way post-Independence and persuaded of her potential to overcome them, Sri Aurobindo’s vision of a new India melds the spiritual with the political. More than 60 years after his passing, Sri Aurobindo’s penetrating insights on issues such as building on India’s cultural and spiritual foundations, a national agenda for education, Hindu-Muslim coexistence and the need to distinguish reason from a blind imitation of the West continue to resonate. 1.
