Lakshmi massages Vishnu´s feet. Is this male domination? Kali stands on Shiva´s chest. Is this female domination? Shiva is half a woman. Is this gender quality? Why then is Shakti never half a man? Taken literally, stories, symbols and rituals of Hindu mythology have much to say about gender relationships. Taken symbolically, they reveal many more things about humanity and nature. Which is the correct reading? The third title in the bestselling Hindu Trinity series focuses on the goddess, and respected mythologist Devdutt Pattanaik tries to unravel the secrets locked within her stories, symbols and rituals. 1.

Shiva, ´the destroyer´ among the Hindu trinity (of gods), is depicted in many contradictory manners. He is an ascetic who wears animal skin, his body smeared with ashes. Contradictory to his wild nature, he is also depicted as having a family, with a beautiful wife and two children. There are many more such varied representations of Shiva, the most prominent of these being the Linga and the Nataraja. The author, Devdutt Pattanaik, introduces listeners to these varied aspects and representations, and then sets about interpreting them. He explains the different anomalies and conflicts in beliefs, as well as the symbolism, rituals and reasons behind Hindu worship. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sagar Arya.

Believers is a scientist´s answer to attacks on faith by some well-meaning scientists and philosophers- a firm rebuke of the ´´Four Horsemen´´: Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennett, Sam Harris, and Christopher Hitchens, known for writing about religion as something irrational and ultimately harmful. Konner, who was raised as an Orthodox Jew but has lived his adult life without such faith, explores the psychology, development, brain science, evolution, and even genetics of the varied religious impulses we as a species experience. Conceding that faith is not for everyone, he views religious people with a sympathetic eye; his own upbringing, his apprenticeship in the trancedance religion of the African Bushmen, and his friends in Christian, Buddhist, Hindu, Muslim, and other faiths have all shaped his perspective. He concludes that religion does much good as well as undoubted harm, and that for at least a large minority of humanity, the belief in things unseen neither can nor should go away.
Rearming Hinduism is a handbook for intellectual resistance. Through an astute and devastating critique of Hinduphobia in today´s academia, media and popular culture, Vamsee Juluri shows us that what the Hinduphobic worldview denies virulently is not only the truth and elegance of Hindu thought, but the very integrity and sanctity of the natural world itself. By boldly challenging some of the media age´s most popular beliefs about nature, history, and pre-history along with the Hinduphobes´ usual myths about Aryans, invasions and blood-sacrifices, Rearming Hinduism links Hinduphobia and its hubris to a predatory and self-destructive culture that perhaps only a renewed Hindu sensibility can effectively oppose. It is a call to see the present in a way that elevates our desa and kala to the ideals of the sanathana dharma once again. ´´For a civilization is not just buildings and machines, but its people, their thought, and their culture. It is a way of knowing the world, a way of giving meaning and value to the contents of life. It is a resource, most of all, for living intelligently.´´ 1. Language: English. Narrator: P. J. Ochlan.

Discover the infinite possibilities of the ´´vertical dimension” of existence.Eckhart Tolle has long taught a curious truth: You’re not your possessions. You’re not your career. You’re not the events of your life. You’re not even the contents of your mind.So, who are you?With The Journey into Yourself, this beloved teacher invites you to join him on an odyssey beyond the ´´horizontal dimension” of thought and into an aspect of our lives that most of us overlook: the ´´vertical dimension” beyond the reach of the mind. According to Eckhart, the vertical dimension might be better known as the present moment or the now - all that ever really is. And that includes you - the real you.Recorded before a live audience at the Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, New York, The Journey into Yourself presents a rarely heard talk from early in Eckhart’s teaching career. Here you will encounter more than eight hours of practical, provocative, and occasionally hilarious teachings for awakening to who we are beyond the physical.Highlights:Why the phrase ´´life is a dream” is more accurate than you might expectPiercing the veil of self-made sufferingThe gentle and fierce aspects of embodied PresenceWhy setbacks and discomfort are the most potent teachersWisdom teachings from Buddhism, Christianity, and Hindu traditions that point to the embodiment of PresenceWhy right action can only arise from surrender to the momentWith The Journey into Yourself, Eckhart encourages you to step into the space between thoughts and discover the joyous treasures that lie within.If your true self can’t be found in your job, your possessions, your body, or even the contents of your mind, then just who are you, anyway?

For most, the goddess Tara the Goddess of compassion and protection. Few people know that she has several other natures as well; 21 in all. She, like most deities in the eastern religions, whether it be Hinduism or certain forms of Buddhism , have several different natures. As I stated in the book on Kali in this series, I mentioned that many deities have qualities that we, in the west, may consider to be ´´evil´´ but in the east, they are considered ´´wrathful´´. Tara and her energies are very well suited for use in Magick. More often than not, her energy is loving and embracing. But as I said, she has a wrathful nature that can very much be equated to the Hindu Goddess Durga and perhaps even Kali of the Hindu traditions. This wrathful nature can be harnessed. With that said, let´s take a journey through the energies of Tara. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Baal Kadmon. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/053705/bk_acx0_053705_sample.mp3.
