16801 Karen Chase; Introduction By Milo Beach
Jamali-Kamali: A Tale of Passion in Mughal India
MapinLit: An Imprint of Mapin Publishing; Ahmedabad, India; 2011; 818999512X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
Just off busy Mehrauli-Gurgaon Road in Delhi, the 16th century Sufi court poet Jamali is buried in a tomb next to Kamali, of whom the printed matter says "identity unknown", but who helpful guides, say was the poet's lover. Little about them is known. According to Delhi's oral tradition, Jamali and Kamali were homosexual lovers. Others believe Kamali was Jamali's wife and some others that "Kamali" was Jamali's nom de plume. Over the reigns of Sikandar Lodi, Babur and Humayun, Jamali's travels take him to distant lands like Syria, Iran, Ceylon, Mecca and Spain separating the lovers for long periods of time. The verse moves from Jamali's longing to Kamali's lament, re-creating the interplay between their passionate hearts. About the Author Karen Chase lives in western Massachusetts. Her poems, stories and essays have appeared in many magazines and her work has been widely anthologized. She is the award-winning author of two collections of poetry, Kazimierz Square and Bear, and the non-fiction book, Land of Stone. Printed Pages: 79 with colour illustrations. 036576

16803 Karen G. Ruffle
Gender, Sainthood, & Everyday Practice in South Asian Shi’ism
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8121512484; First Indian Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
In this study of devotional hagiographical texts And contemporary ritual performances of the Shi’a of Hyderabad, India, Karen Ruffle demonstrates how traditions of sainthood and localized cultural values shape gender roles. Ruffle focuses on the annual mourning assemblies held on 7 Muharram to commemorate the battlefield wedding of Fatimah Kubra and her warrior-bridegroom Qasem, who was martyred in 680CE at the battle of Karbala, Iraq, before their marriage was consummated. Ruffle argues that hagiography, an important textual tradition in Islam, plays a dynamic role in constructing the memory, piety, and social sensibilities of a Shi’i community. Through the Hyderabadi rituals that idealize and venerate Qasem, Fatimah Kubra, and the other heroes of Karbala, a distinct from of sainthood is produced. These saints, Ruffle explains, serve as socioethical role models and religious paragons whom Shil’i Muslims aim to imitate in their everyday lives, improving their personal religious practice and social selves. On a broader community level Ruffle observes, such practices help generate and reinforce group identity, shared ethics, and gendered sensibilities. By putting gender and everyday practice at the center of her study, Ruffle challenges Shi’i patriarchal narratives that present only men as saints and brings to light typically overlooked women’s religious practices.

Leading The Virtual Workforce: How Great Leaders Transform Organizations in the 21St Century
Times Group Books; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8126528966; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
This book is about the rise of the ambassadorial leader and the need for related leadership skills in the digital and virtual age. It includes a treatment of leadership that has not been done before; using the virtual distance model as a launch point for a new way of looking at leadership. The book covers not only the behaviors that leaders need to understand that can lead to increased virtual distance but also the organizational structural changes and resource shifts that have led to the need to re-think leadership for the virtual age. Then, using the foundation of virtual distance and related contextual issues to describe ambassadorial leadership, it discusses the elements of an ambassadorial leader, includes case studies of leaders that exhibit ambassadorial leader qualities, and provides a full self-assessment with tools and techniques to how to become a better leader in the virtual world.Printed Pages: 192. 104715

Unselfishly for Peace and Justice-and against Evil: The Rhetoric of the Great Powers in the UN Security Council, 1946-1956
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2014; 9529888546; New; 
This study examines the rhetoric used by the great powers in the United Nations Security Council in the context of the international crises that occurred between 1946 and 1956. The topic is an important one, in that, first and foremost, the arguments the great powers presented to the public in the context of various international crises represent integral parts of those powers political agendas. Thus these arguments warrant a fundamental assessment. Additionally, the United Nations Security Council, which became functional in early 1946, represented the most central and enduring forum for debating international crises after the Second World War. To the great powers, the Security Council represented a public forum of sorts, one where they might justify their political positions, undermine the policies of their opponents, or sway the dissenting nations around to their point of view.

Itämeren itälaidalla III: On the Eastern Edge of the Baltic Sea III
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2012; 952988849X; New; 
Oulun yliopistossa järjestettiin 1.12.?2.12.2011 kansainvälinen symposiumi, jonka teemana oli vallankäyttö Suomen ja Baltian historiassa. Vallankäyttöä voidaan tarkastella monista eri näkökulmista, mistä symposiumissa pidetyt esitelmät antavat hyvän todistuksen. Kaikilla esitelmillä ja artikkeleilla on yhteinen nimittäjä: kaikissa analysoidaan, miten ja miksi vallankäyttö on juuri tietyllä tavalla vaikuttanut ihmisyhteisöjen välisiin ja sisäisiin suhteisiin Itämeren piirin itäisen puoliskon ? Fenno-Baltian ? historiassa. Teoksen ensimmäinen osa koostuu artikkeleista, joissa tarkastellaan ennen muuta sanallista vallankäyttöä. Toinen osa koostuu artikkeleista, joiden päänäkökulmana on tarkastella vallankäyttöä poliittisesta, hallinnollisesta tai yhteiskunnallis-sosiaalisesta näkökulmasta. Printed Pages: 323. 115518

Imagology and Cross-cultural Encounters in History
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2008; 9529888368; New; 
The themes of the Conference on Imagology and Cross-cultural Encounters in History included national and international symbols, persons and groups of people, but also images, as explaining factors in political and economic decision-making. Secondly, the conference examined interaction between cultures, because it has always been apparent how difficult it is to understand others and dissimilarity. The purpose of the conference was to shed light on these problems through examples from different ages, which provide an additional perspective in examining corresponding phenomena today.

Johdatus Suhteellisuusteoriaan
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2011; 9525329976; New; 
Suhteellisuusteorioita on kaksi. Suppea suhteellisuusteoria, joka syntyi vuonna 1905, vastaa kysymykseen, miltä kappaleiden liikkeet näyttävät eri havaitsijoiden näkökulmista. Yleinen suhteellisuusteoria on suppean suhteellisuusteorian yleistys ja tarkastelee toistensa suhteen kiihtyvässä liikkeessä olevia havaitsijoita. Yleinen suhteellisuusteoria on näin teoria painovoimasta eli gravitaatiosta. Yleisen suhteellisuusteorian sovellusala löytyy yhä enenevässä määrin astrofysiikan lisäksi kosmologiasta, sillä se on myös teoria kaiken totaliteetille eli koko maailmankaikkeudelle. Tämä kirja on syntynyt professori Kari Enqvistin Helsingin yliopistossa pitämien Suhteellisuusteorian perusteet ja Modernin fysiikan alkeet -luentojen pohjalta. Printed Pages: 109. 114357

Provinsen bortom Havet
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2013; 9515832659; New; 
I juni 1561 övertog Sverige staden Reval, nuvarande Tallinn, med omgivande landsbygd. Det svenska väldet i Estland varade i ett och ett halvt sekel, fram till 1710. Det var en dramatisk period präglad av återkommande krig, hungersnöd och pestepidemier i de baltiska provinserna. Samtidigt utvecklades samhället genom reformer inom utbildning, kyrka och rättsväsende samt inom jordbruket. De baltiska böndernas ställning var en brännande fråga i provinsernas förhållande till moderlandet, men trots skarpa yttranden av flera svenska kungar avskaffades inte livegenskapen. I boken balanseras ett svenskt perspektiv med ett estniskt och även balttyskt på ett unik sätt. Printed Pages: 379. 115504

Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2016; 9515831555; New; 
Sveriges Österland behandlar om Finlands förhistoria, medeltid och 1500-tal.

Faces of Goa
Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1998; 8121205840; Hardcover; New; New; 
Faces of Goa explores the culture and History of Goa from early records till date, with an aim to provide an exclusive historical and socio-economic Study of Goa. This Book is designed in such a way that before the reader reads about Goa, he/she explores and expands the very definition of culture to view culture as a continuous process of evolution. Through this new perspective the reader then travels through Goa's past and present to experience Goa through the Eyes of a sociologist. The authores thus utilises both historical records and modern-day Observations to provide a more complete Picture of India's 25th State in this study.The second section of this work then explores the process of rural-urban migration as it relates to Goa and demonstrates that migration substantially affects a community's Cultural Patterns and evolution. Mumbai, Mangalore, and Bangalore are the three Cities chosen to explore this theme. The third section of this work details how other Communities along the West Coast of India were also influenced by the presence of the Portuguese and the resulting cultural evolution of these areas.Printed Pages: 507. 105868

Women of Honour: Gender and Agency among Dalit Women in the Central Himalayas
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8125042679; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
In Women of Honour , Karin Polit gives an ethnographic account of how relationships are shaped among the Dalit people of Chamoli, Utttarakhand. Through thick descriptions of everyday life—conversations, friendship, dress, work—the author shows that gender identity is a process. Questioning the assumption that Indian women are mute and powerless, she argues that the people of Chamoli—women and men—see themselves as part of an agentive unity. These networks of agency, which include divine agents, are described as the basis of an honourable life. The book will be of interest to anthropologists, feminists—especially Dalit feminists, sociologists and cultural critics. Printed pages: 380. 036906

The Cambridge Companion to German Idealism
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2000; 0521656958; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
The Cambridge Companion to German Idealism offers a comprehensive, penetrating, and informative guide to what is regarded as the classical period of German philosophy. Kant, Fichte, Hegel, and Schelling are all discussed in detail, together with a number of their contemporaries, such as Hölderlin and Schleiermacher, whose influence was considerable but whose work is less well known in the English-speaking world. The essays in the volume trace and explore the unifying themes of German Idealism, and discuss their relationship to Romanticism, the Enlightenment, and the culture of seventeenth- and eighteenth-century Europe. The result is an illuminating overview of a rich and complex philosophical movement, and will appeal to a wide range of readers in philosophy, German studies, theology, literature, and the history of ideas. Contents Introduction: interpreting German Idealism Karl Ameriks; 1. The Enlightenment and Idealism Frederick Beiser; 2. Absolute Idealism and the rejection of Kantian dualism Paul Guyer; 3. Kant’s practical philosophy Allen Wood; 4. The aesthetic holism of Hamann, Herder, and Schiller Daniel Dahlstrom; 5.

When the Clouds Part: The Uttaratantra and Its Meditative Tradition as a Bridge between Sutra and Tantra
Snow Lion/TBI; New Delhi, India; 2015; 155939417X; Hardcover; New; New; 
“Buddha nature” (tathagatagarbha) is the innate potential in all living beings to become a fully awakened buddha. This book discusses a wide range of topics connected with the notion of buddha nature as presented in Indo-Tibetan Buddhism and includes an overview of the sutra sources of the tathagatagarbha teachings and the different ways of explaining the meaning of this term. It includes new translations of the Maitreya treatise Mahayanottaratantra (Ratnagotravibhaga), the primary Indian text on the subject, its Indian commentaries, and two (hitherto untranslated) commentaries from the Tibetan Kagyü tradition. Most important, the translator’s introduction investigates in detail the meditative tradition of using the Mahayanottaratantra as a basis for Mahamudra instructions and the Shentong approach. This is supplemented by translations of a number of short Tibetan meditation manuals from the Kadampa, Kagyü, and Jonang schools that use the Mahayanottaratantra as a work to contemplate and realize one’s own buddha nature.

Luminous Heart: The Third Karmapa on Consciousness, Wisdom, and Buddha Nature
Snow Lion/TBI; New Delhi, India; 1559393181; Hardcover; New; New; 
This superb collection of writings on buddha nature by the Third Karmapa Rangjung Dorje (1284–1339) focuses on the transition from ordinary deluded consciousness to enlightened wisdom, the characteristics of buddhahood, and a buddha's enlightened activity. Most of these materials have never been translated comprehensively. The Third Karmapa's unique and well-balanced view synthesizes Yogacara Madhyamaka and the classical teachings on buddha nature. Rangjung Dorje not only shows that these teachings do not contradict each other but also that they supplement each other and share the same essential points in terms of the ultimate nature of mind and all phenomena. His fusion is remarkable because it clearly builds on Indian predecessors and precedes the later often highly charged debates in Tibet about the views of Rangtong ("self-empty") and Shentong ("other-empty"). Although Rangjung Dorje is widely regarded as one of the major proponents of the Tibetan Shentong tradition (some even consider him its founder), this book shows how his views differ from the Shentong tradition as understood by Dolpopa Taranatha and the First Jamgon Kongtrul. The Third Karmapa's view is more accurately described as one in which the two categories of rangtong and shentong are not regarded as mutually exclusive but are combined in a creative synthesis. For those practicing the sutrayana and the vajrayana in the Kagyu tradition, what these texts describe can be transformed into living experience. Printed Pages: 512. 112978

The Center of the Sunlit Sky: Madhyamaka in the Kagyü Tradition
Snow Lion Publications; Ithaca, New York, USA; 2008; 1559392185; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
Madhyamaka is a potent and universally accessible means of calming our suffering and awakening to our innate wisdom. The Center of the Sunlit Sky artfully rescues this brilliant teaching from its unwarranted reputation for intellectual opacity and reinstates it as a supremely practical tool kit for everyday living. The aim of this book is to take Madhyamaka out of the purely intellectual corner into which it--unjustly--gets boxed. It is an attempt to show how Madhayamaka actually addresses and works with all of our experiences in life. The book follows the original Indian sources as well as the standard commentaries on Madhyamaka in the Kagyu School of Tibetan Buddhism. At the same time, these materials are adapted for a contemporary audience, combining the familiar sharpness of Madhyamaka reasonings (launching a massive assault on our cherished belief systems) with exploring the practical relevance of the Madhyamaka way of mind training.

Encyclopedia of Indian Philosophies (Volume 8: Buddhist Philosophy from 100 to 350 A.D)
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2011; 812081553X; Second Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 
The following volume constitutes the second in a series devoted to Buddhist philosophy. It takes up more or less where its predecessor, Volume VII of this Encyclopedia, leaves off, around the beginning of the second century A.D. This is a period still not well understood, with a great deal of scholarly disagreement remaining about many aspects of the history and thought of the period. The editor of the volume has tried to utilize the most up-to-date scholarship known to us. The volume treats the subject altogether chronologically, beginning with the Buddha and ending when Buddhist thought leaves India around 14th century A.D. The purpose behind this approach is to avoid imposing more divisions into Buddhism than are historically apparent. The scope of these volumes is limited to summaries of the texts that are of philosophical interest throughout, theoretical rather than practical in their intended function, and polemical or at least expository in a context where defence of one view among alternatives is appropriate. These criteria have been interpreted here broadly and loosely. In these volumes dealing with Buddhism, the original Sutras, the earliest literature regularly ascribed to the Buddha or his immediate disciples, is not summarized.Printed Pages: 844. 102131

Encyclopedia of Indian Philosophies (Volume 16: Philosophy of Purva-Mimamsa)
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8120836448; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
'Mimamsa', as used classically, has among its meanings that of an "exploration" or "investigation" of something. In the context of early Vedic thought, it can mean specifically a theory governing the origins, basic values, and assumptions about man, in particular about the type of actions a human should or should not perform, as suggested and sometimes spelled out in the Vedas. The Vedas, the oldest extant literature of what is now considered Hinduism, generated a vast literature of their own. Some of this passed down to us in the form of brief pronouncements called sutras, which were presumably meant for memorization and were not always independently intelligible. These sutras in turn generated explanatory commentaries, and commentaries upon commentaries. The basic sutras of what came to be the Purva Mimamsa system were known as the Mimamsa-sutras or Purvamimamsasutras ('Purva' since another set of literature expounding a different understanding of ultimate things came to be recognized also as Mimamsa, specifically "Uttara" or later Mimamsa.) Initially the Purva Mimamsa had no special recognition of the subject matter of philosophy as understood in these volumes of our Encyclopedia, and would not warrant treatment as Indian philosophy in other systems developed ideas concerning the assumptions of rebirth, transmigration, and the possibility of attainment of final liberation, Purva Mimamsa also developed a philosophical system in response, beginning with further commentaries on their sutras and proceeding on to independent works, comprising a collection of texts which constitutes the philosophy being studied in the present Volume.Printed Pages: 682. 102133

Encyclopedia of Indian Philosophies: Acintyabhedhabheda Vaisnava Philosophy, Volume 19
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Private Limited/Research India Press; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8120839978; Hardcover; New; New; 
Confronted with a series of volumes called the Encyclopedia of Indian Philosophies, one is likely to ask, What constitutes 'philosophy' in the relevant sense? Introductions to understood as investigation of the nature of and path (s) to liberation from rebirth (moksa; nirvana), a definition which seems to fit most Indian schools of thought as taught and practiced in the classical period (500 B.C.-1000 A.D.), whether Jain, Buddhist or Hindu. These schools persists for the most part into the twenty-first century, though concern for liberation is in some cases overshadowed by the rise of a commitment to religious purposes, understood broadly as bhakti or devotion to God. The system that is the subject of the present volume is one such devotional system. As this volume demonstrates, the concern of this system is two-fold: liberation is accepted, but downplayed in the face of the requirements of true devotion. The system is but one representative of devotional systems; other such systems, equally deserving of a volume devoted to them (such as Suddhadvaita), are regretably not planned for inclusion in this Encyclopedia. In Part I of the book the Introduction written by Prof. Ramakanta Chakravarti focuses on "Gaudiya Vaisnavism in Bengal." In Part II the summaries of works include Caitanya, Raghunath Goswami Dasa, Sanatana Gosvami, Rupa Gosvami, Raghunatha Bhatta, Gopala Bhatta, Jiva Gosvami, Narottama Dasa, Narayana Bhatta, Visnudasa Gosvami, Vamsidhara, Visvanatha Cakarvarti, Radha Damodara, Rupa Kaviraj, Baladeva Vidyabhushana, Savai Jayasimha, Bhavanicarana Tarkabhusana, Krsnadeva Sarvabhauma or Vedantavagisa, Viracandra Gosvamin, Radharamana Dasa Gosvami, Bhaktivinoda Thakkura, Vrndavana Tarkalamkara, Gaurakisora Gosvami, Aksaya Kumara Sastri, and Anupanarayana Tarkasiromani.

Encyclopedia of Indian Philosophies (Vol;ume 17) Jain Philosophy (Part III))
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8120836456; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Acontribution of Janinism to Indian philosophy which seems most stimulating, inspiring, debated and controversial, one which provoked the most opposition from other systems of India, is beyond doubt the doctrine of multiplexity of reality (anekantavada). Indisputably it is also the most interesting Jaina contribution to Indian philosophy. The doctrine involved both a very particular realist ontology as well as a corresponding epistemology that was structured in such a way as to most aptly handle certain ontological presuppositions.The Jaina ontology entailed by the doctrine of multiplexity of reality (anekantavada) viewed the world structure as consisting of four interrelated aspects: substance (dravya), quality (guna), mode (paryaya) and ineffable, transient occurrence (vivarta, vartana, often overlooked in both Jaina expositions of the theory and in analyses carried out by modern researchers). Howerver, the point to emphasise is that things, especially when conceived as substances, were believed to preserve their identity and in this aspect they were immutable and permanent. At the same time, however, when conceived as modes, they appeared to change and transform continuously. This seemed to have led to contradictions in ontology. Besides, in order to explain the process of change, Jaina ontology also distinguished three modes of existence, that actually co-existed: origination (utpada, udaya), continued existence (sthiti, dhrauvya) and cessation, or disintegration (bhanga, vyaya, japavarga). These four closely corresponded to the Buddhist Sarvastivadaís and Abhidharmaís four (or three) conditioned factors, known as ëmarkersí (samskrtalaksana)óorigination (utpada), continuity (sthiti), deterioration (jara, vyaya) and extinction (bhanga, nirodha).Printed Pages: 432. 102134

Covering Jaina philosophy from where Volume Ten left off toward the end of the tenth century, this Volume covers 355 works of 99 Jain philosophers who lived between 1000 and 1300 A.D. The names of a number of famous Jaina authors are covered in the list along with summaries of many of their works. Piotr Balcerowicz' article on the Jaina theory of viewpoints or perspective (naya), which introduces this Volume, shows how that theory, set forth in the famous account of seven fold predication (saptapadarthi), avoids skepticism, contradiction, or violation of the law of excluded middle, while presenting a plausible, if complex, way of gauging reality.

Edige: A Karakalpak Oral Epic as Performed by Jumabay Bazarov (Folklore Fellows Communications 293)
Suomalainen Tiedeakatemia (Academia Scientiarum Fennica)/Bookstore Tiedekirja; Helsinki, Finland; 2007; 9514110129; Hardcover; New; New; 
Edige is one of the most esteemed oral epics of the Karakalpaks, a Turkic-speaking people, who live on the mouth of the Amu Darya and the shores of the Aral Sea in Uzbekistan. Edige is a historical personage from the time of Timur and the turn of the 14th to the 15th century. He is considered the founding father of the Noghay Horde, from which the Karakalpaks and the other Turkic peoples have emerged, and his tale is therefore for the Karakalpaks intimately linked to their historical roots and ethnic identity.The singer, Jumabay Bazarov, was the last Karakalpak singer of heroic epics who stood in an entirely oral tradition. In this edition and translation an attempt has been made to capture as much of his oral performance as possible, including the singer’s dialect features and his musical style. The singer’s performance is also illustrated by audio and video clips on the CD accompanying this book. Printed Pages: 498. 113825

Echoes of Silence: Avadhut Gita Revisited
Zen Publications/D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 9789382788843; Softcover; New; 
"Watch out. This is not another of those feel-good ‘oneness’ Advaita books. This one is a double-barrelled shotgun taking pot shots at the conceptualising mind -one barrel being fired by the great Indian mystic-sage Dattatreya (Avadhut) and the other by Karl Renz, the contemporary ‘Avadhut’. There is no escape here not just for the ‘fragmented-mind’ but also for the enlightened ‘whole-mind’! 109450

A Little bit of Nothingness: Eighty-One Observations on the Unnameable
Zen Publications/D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 9789384363543; Softcover; New; 
The teachings of Karl Renz are a bit like Zen Koans — those short statements that stop the minds activity by contemplating their paradoxical meaning. But Karl takes you even further: pondering his words have the power to turn the mind back upon itself, toward our original awareness of Being. A Little Bit of Nothingness is a unique juxtaposition between the dialogues of Karl Renz and the eighty-one verses of the Tao Te Ching. Here, the reality of the Tao — the unnameable, original cause of all that is — has the potential to become evident as our own reality, by the deep insights provided through Karl.The search for happiness usually takes us on an outward journey where we find ourselves identifying with everything except "that which we truly are." What we really need is to taste a "a little bit of nothingness"— the absence of any kind of ideas that we have about ourselves. No one sees this as well as Karl Renz, the German mystic-artist who, for the last ten years, has travelled around the world pulling the rug out from under our hallowed beliefs, leaving us blissfully wanting even less."Realization means that consciousness, which once was identified with an object, becomes boundry-less. It becomes conscious of being consciousness. But the Self is never realized nor not-realized. It is always prior to any ideas about enlightenment or non-enlightenment. Anything you can say about it is an idea." Karl Renz. Printed Pages: 164. 111613

Am I - I Am
Zen Publications/D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 8188071854; Softcover; New; 
Am I - I Am is an assortment of delectable snippets from various talks of Karl Renz - talks which Karl often refers to as ‘Living Words’.These ‘Living Words’ are best described in Karl’s own words as those “without a speaker, having no direction, are not teaching, give no advice and do not want anything from you. This, simply put, is the heart of the book.all you can say about the phenomenon named ‘Karl’ is that the words that emanate from him are a relentless destroyer of all concepts - from the cosy to the profound. Using his livewire humour and trademark wordplay, Karl edges you so far beyond your pet concepts that at some point you may just find that ‘you’ have fallen off into the void. An enigmatic feature of Karl’s words is that they are utterly bereft of intent or strategy. And surprise! Something which otherwise would have been deemed fit to be dismissed as mindless prattle, has quite the opposite effect in this case - of making one want for more and never having enough of it! This spontaneous barrage of Kail’s words, steeped in carefree-ness and intentionless-ness, can be more destructive to ‘whatever that can be destroyed’ than any conceivable tool of destruction. So, go ahead and enter this vortex of Absolute churning at your own risk - ‘you’ may or may not get out! Printed Pages: 228. 111616

Heaven and Hell
Zen Publications/D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 8188071935; Softcover; New; 
‘You don’t need this book!’ Karl would say, ‘You stand to gain absolutely nothing from it. He would probably add he hopes nobody gains or understands anything from him. What’s more, he would mean it!In Karl you encounter Advaita in its rawest form - undiluted, uncooked, unconditioned by thought and untainted by frills or more concepts. It’s bang-in-your-face, inescapable Advaita . . . ‘What-you-cannot-not-be!’Jean-Paul Sartre said, ‘The Other is hell’. How does one define ‘The Other’? Are the people around us ‘The Others? Is the little echo in the mind also ‘The Other’? Who sees when the eyes open? Who defines? And then who defines the definer? Questions, questions.As Karl eloquently describes it, ‘You realize yourself in the comfortin the absence and in the discomfort in the presence. Because the presence is always the experience of separation, from the beginning. Even Awareness needs an experience. The presence -separation, absence - no separation. Heaven and hell. And in both you realize yourself.’ He then takes even that away as well by saying ‘If there would be a reality in the presence or in the absence, then it will be hell again because it would be two.’In his irreverent, uncompromising style Karl presents the abject futility of any and every endeavour towards finding ‘a way out’. Many newcomers scurry for cover when they encounter this ‘disheartening and cold’ approach. Some come back later, on the rare apperception of the absurdity of any ‘one’ wanting a ‘way out’! But the ones who do return, stay on to enjoy the Karl Renz circus of irrelevance: irrelevance of what is spoken, irrelevance of the listener and irrelevance of the speaker. Grace in action! Karl Renz, now based in Mallorca, Spain, travels throughout the world simply responding to few of the numerous invitations to hold meetings. He has no agenda, no teaching, no techniques, and no desire for whatever gets said to be understood. To him, his talks have no special significance as being different from, say, the barking of a dog or the gibberish sounds that he sometimes makes during the talks - not different than the next sip of coffee! The next (moment), for him is simply the next, an embrace of helplessness! Printed Pages: 220. 111634
