We live in an era of unprecedented growth in knowledge. Never before has there been so great an availability of and access to information in both print and online. Yet as opportunities to educate ourselves have greatly increased, our time for reading has significantly diminished. And when we do read, we rarely have the patience to read in the slow, sustained fashion that great books require if we are to be truly transformed by them. In Reading the Hindu and Christian Classics, renowned Harvard Divinity School professor Francis Clooney argues that our increasing inability to read in a concerted manner is particularly notable in the realm of religion, where the proliferation of information detracts from the learning of practices that require slow and patient reading. Although awareness of the world´s many religions is at an all-time high, deep knowledge of the various traditions has suffered. Clooney challenges this trend by considering six classic Hindu and Christian texts dealing with ritual and law, catechesis and doctrine, and devotion and religious participation, showing how, in distinctive ways, such texts instruct, teach truth, and draw willing readers to participate in the realities they are learning. Through readings of these seminal scriptural and theological texts, he reveals the rewards of a more spiritually transformative mode of reading-and how individuals and communities can achieve it.

Yantra Yoga, the Buddhist parallel to the Hathayoga of the Hindu tradition, is a system of practice entailing bodily movements, breathing exercises, and visualizations. Originally transmitted by the mahasiddhas of India and Oddiyana, its practice is nowadays found in all schools of Tibetan Buddhism in relation to the Anuttaratantras, more generally known under the Tibetan term trulkhor , whose Sanskrit equivalent is yantra . The Union of the Sun and Moon Yantra (Phrul ´khor nyi zla kha sbyor), orally transmitted in Tibet in the eighth century by the great master Padmasambhava to the Tibetan translator and Dzogchen master Vairochana, can be considered the most ancient of all the systems of Yantra, and its peculiarity is that it contains also numerous positions which are also found in the classic Yoga tradition. Chögyal Namkhai Norbu, one of the great living masters of Dzogchen and Tantra, started transmitting this profound Yoga in the seventies and at that time wrote this commentary, which is based on the oral explanations of some Tibetan yogins and siddhas of the twentieth century. All Western practitioners will benefit from the extraordinary instructions contained in this volume.

Fibonacci´s Liber Abaci
53,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

First published in 1202, Fibonacci´s ´´Liber abaci´´ was one of the most important books on mathematics in the Middle Ages, introducing Arabic numerals and methods throughout Europe.Its author, Leonardo Pisano, known today as Fibonacci, was a citizen of Pisa, an active maritime power, with trading outposts on the Barbary Coast and other points in the Muslim Empire. As a youth Fibonacci was instructed in mathematics in one of these outposts; he continued his study of mathematics while traveling extensively on business and developed contacts with scientists throughout the Mediterranean world. A member of the academic court around the Emperor Frederick II, Leonardo saw clearly the advantages for both commerce and scholarship of the Hindu positional number system and the algebraic methods developed by al-Khwarizmi and other Muslim scientists.Though it is known as an introduction to the Hindu number system and the algorithms of arithmetic that children now learn in grade school, ´´Liber abaci´´ is much more: an encyclopaedia of thirteenth-century mathematics, both theoretical and practical. It develops the tools rigorously, establishing them with Euclidean geometric proofs, and then shows how to apply them to all kinds of situations in business and trade - conversion of measures and currency, allocations of profit, computation of interest, alloying of currencies, and so forth. It is rigorous mathematics, well applied, and vividly described. As the first translation into a modern language of the ´´Liber abaci´´, this book will be of interest not only to historians of science, but to all mathematicians and mathematics teachers interested in the origins of their methods.

Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King are great examples of fantastic nonviolents who died violently. I can never work that out. We´re pacifists, but I´m not sure what it means when you´re such a pacifist, you get shot. I can never understand that. (John Lennon)Mahatma Gandhi, an ambitious attorney turned simple, orthodox Hindu holy man, single-handedly came up with the philosophies of nonviolence and noncooperation that successfully dislodged the British empire from their long-held, tyrannical imperial rule over India. In this in-depth inspirational audiobook by well-known author, actor, and narrator Geoffrey Giuliano, the important and still-relevant story of this iconic social reformer is told along with rare, unheard recordings of the Mahatma himself. This imperative sociopolitical, philosophical, esoteric profile of courage is as important today as it was at the end of the British rule, wherein we witness similar oppressive pressures by major powers such as the United States of America against its own minority population.Here is the story of a soft-spoken, determined man who not only asked seminal questions at the right time but also came up with powerful solutions to the mass oppression of a populace unwilling to live under the thumb of a foreign dictatorial power.This Icon audiobook exclusive is perfect for all students of political history, social reformation, the spiritual science of yoga, curious commuters, and all school and university systems. 1.

Best-selling author Rick Riordan introduces this adventure by Roshani Chokshi about twelve-year-old Aru Shah, who has a tendency to stretch the truth in order to fit in at school. While her classmates are jetting off to family vacations in exotic locales, she´ll be spending her autumn break at home, in the Museum of Ancient Indian Art and Culture, waiting for her mom to return from her latest archeological trip. Is it any wonder that Aru makes up stories about being royalty, traveling to Paris, and having a chauffeur? One day, three schoolmates show up at Aru´s doorstep to catch her in a lie. They don´t believe her claim that the museum´s Lamp of Bharata is cursed, and they dare Aru to prove it. Just a quick light, Aru thinks. Then she can get herself out of this mess and never ever fib again. But lighting the lamp has dire consequences. She unwittingly frees the Sleeper, an ancient demon whose duty it is to awaken the God of Destruction. Her classmates and beloved mother are frozen in time, and it´s up to Aru to save them. The only way to stop the demon is to find the reincarnations of the five legendary Pandava brothers, protagonists of the Hindu epic poem, the Mahabharata, and journey through the Kingdom of Death. But how is one girl in Spider-Man pajamas supposed to do all that?
