17103 Khandro Rinpoche
This Precious Life: Tibetan Buddhist Teachings on the Path to Enlightenment
Shambhala; Boston, USA; 2003; 1570623074; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 15.5 Cms x 23 Cms 
Using the traditional Tibetan Buddhist framework of the Four Reminders—the preciousness of human birth, the truth of impermanence, the reality of suffering, and the inescapability of karma—Khandro Rinpoche explains why and how we could all better use this short life to pursue a spiritual path and make the world a better place. She says, "Think of all the time you've wasted hesitating or feeling distracted, or expending useless energy feeling jealous or angry, or being selfish. At the time of death, you'll look back and it will all seem like a dream." The book includes contemplative exercises that encourage us to appreciate the tremendous potential of the human body and mind. They focus on how we can learn to see this life as a gift—and how, by achieving peace in our own lives, we can bring a seed of happiness to other people. Although raised in Asia, Khandro Rinpoche is well-versed in Western culture, which allows her to translate Tibetan Buddhist wisdom to Westerners with remarkable authenticity and immediacy. She is also one the most highly trained living Tibetan masters and has been teaching in the United States and Europe for over fifteen years, during which time she has attracted thousands of students. She brings a unique feminine perspective to the wisdom tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. Printed Pages: 205. 007405

17104 Khateeb S. Mustafa
A Descriptive Grammar of Dakkhini
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2000; 812150886X; First Edition; Hardbound; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
The present work attempts to analyse and describe Dakkhini, a variety of Urdu spoken in Chittoor district of Andhra Pradesh in the framework of descriptive linguistic theory. It presents the phonology, morphology and syntax of the dialect. It also discusses briefly the origin and development of Dakkhini, its speakers in Chittoor district and the whole of Andhra Pradesh and the existing relationship between Dakkhini and Telugu on the one hand and Dakkhini and standard Urdu on the other. It also has a section known as texts which contains a few samples of the data. Dakkhini has assumed crucial importance in socio-linguistics. Since its major implantation in the beginning of the fourteenth century, it has undergone subtle changes in its structure partly due to linguistic acculturation, convergence and aerial contact with different languages in different areas and partly due to innovations it has been making on its own over the years. It is therefore marked by great diversity and heterogeneity. The Dakkhini situation may thus serve not only as a testing ground to validate many a concept of aerial linguistics, but also as a mirror to read the dynamics of convergence of the languages and dialects belonging to two different milieu. The current book has been intended as a fairly detailed grammatical description of a dialect of Dakkhini which is unique in many ways. Although it does not directly deal with a socio-linguistic theme, it endeavours to provide sufficient evidence for a bi-directional convergence, that is, from Dravidian language to Dakkhini and vice versa. It is hoped that the work may arouse some curiosity in linguists working in the area of language contact, language variation, language topology, etc. Printed Pages: 294 with 3 maps. 011984

17105 Khedrup Norsang Gyatso
Ornament of Stainless Light: An Exposition of the Kalacakra Tantra
Wisdom Publications; Boston, USA; 0861714520; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
The premiere volume of Thupten Jinpa's thirty-two-volume Library of Tibetan Classics, inaugurated to coincide with the Dalai Lama's conferral of the initiation rite of Kalachakra in Toronto in April 2004. The Kalachakra (literally, "Wheel of Time") tantra, a core practice of Tibetan Buddhism, is a method for transforming the universe by working with the body and mind. This first volume of the Library of Tibetan Classics series was hand-picked by the Dalai Lama—who recognized it as the finest explication of this practice—and overseen by Thupten Jinpa, whose work has been indispensable to Tibetan Buddhism, both in the West and on the whole. Gavin Kilty's fluid translation makes this volume a pleasure to read. Like its classical Indian predecessor, Stainless Light or Vimalaprabha by Pundarika, Norsang Gyatso's commentary is divided into five sections: (1) the outer world, including the unique Kalachakra cosmology, (2) the inner world of the individual and the subtle nervous system, (3) the Kalachakra initiation rite, (4) the sadhana and generation-stage practices, and (5) the completion-stage practices, including pranayama. Ten appendixes plus a glossary, notes, and bibliography make this an indispensable reference volume on the Kalachakra tantra. Printed Pages: 736. 037137

Tara`s Enlightened Activity
Snow Lion/TBI; New Delhi, India; 1559392878; Softcover; New; 
Tara is an object of devotional worship and meditative practice for Tibetan Buddhists everywhere, both male and female. She clears away fears, overpowers negative emotions, and enables all beings to reach enlightenment. She has special resonance as a source of female spiritual wisdom. Tibetans of all schools and traditions recite the verses on which this commentary is based. Focused contemplative meditation in relation to the myriad aspects of Tara works to transform the practitioner`s mind into those enlightened qualities and mind states that Tara represents. Sought-after teachers throughout the West for over twenty-five years, Khenchen Palden Sherab Rinpoche and his brother Khenpo Tsewang Dongyal Rinpoche illuminate the practice of the Praises to the Twenty-one Taras with humor and wisdom. The explanations cover progressively more subtle levels from basic Buddhism through the Inner Tantras and culminate with Dzogchen. Interspersed with lively stories about Tara, the authors explain the physical conditions for practice, the outer and inner meanings of the text itself, and give solutions for problems that may emerge as practice progresses.

Essentials of Mahamudra: Looking Directly at the Mind
Wisdom Publications; Boston, USA; 2004; 0861713710; First Edition; Paperback; New; New; 15.5 Cms x 23 Cms 
What would you see if you looked directly at your mind? The Tibetan Buddhist teachings on mahamudra are known for their ability to lead to profound realization. Peaceful and infinitely adaptable, these teachings are as useful for today''s busy world as they have been for centuries. Written by the tutor to the seventeenth Karmapa, Essentials of Mahamudra is a commentary on Tashi Namgyal''s famous Moonlight of Mahamudra-a text that the sixteenth Karmapa had identified as the most valuable for Westerners. Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche recognized that Western meditators don''t just need to know how to maintain our meditation practice-we need to know why we should do it. Unmatched in its directness, Essentials of Mahamudra addresses both these needs, rendering one of the most advanced forms of meditation more easily adaptable to our everyday lives.

17126 Khenpo Yeshe Phuntsok
Vajrasattva Meditation: An Illustrated Guide
Wisdom Publications; Boston, USA; 1614292051; First Edition; Paperback; New; 6 x 9 Inches 
The force of our past actions makes it hard to attain our goals, including success in meditation. And so Buddhism has developed methods for purifying our past, clearing the obstacles to success and fulfillment. One of the most popular methods for karmic housekeeping, one common to all schools of Tibetan Buddhism, is the preparatory practice of visualizing the buddha Vajrasattva and reciting his hundred-syllable mantra. It is considered an essential foundation for the success of spiritual endeavor. The practice of Vajrasattva is often the first experience practitioners have of trying to perform tantric ritual. Combining prayers, visualizations, mantra recitations, and multiple styles of meditation, it can be hard for those who did not grow up in the tradition to know how to proceed. This friendly volume by a young Tibetan lama with many followers in China lays out the practice step by step accompanied by sixty color illustrations. Printed Pages: 200. 038718

17127 Khensur Lekden
Meditation of a Tibetan Tantric Abbot
Paljor Publications/Library of Tibetan Works & Archives; New Delhi, India; 1998; 818510204X; Softcover; New; 
This Book presents, with intimate detail of the oral tradition, the main practices of the Mahayana Buddhist path. It details the attitudes cultivated in Meditation - ranging from turning away from cyclic existence, to developing love and compassion for all beings, to the profound view of emptiness.Kensur Lekden was the Abbot of the Tantric College of Lower Lhasa prior to the Chinese invasion. Renowned among the Tibetans as a great lecturer on varied topics, in this work he highlights the incisive and direct approach of mind transformation that runs contrary to the ordinary worldly perspective. A scholar who knew the meaning of applying the great teachings as precepts for practical application, Kensur Lekden, embodied the total involvement of the mind as per 'Mahayana'. Of particular interest is his explanation of the compatibility of emptiness and dependent-arising, showing that realization of emptiness opens the way for understanding the true nature of things, both ultimate and conventional. His blend of compassion and WISDOM is most striking.Printed Pages: 107. 103615

17130 Khorshed Bhavnagri
The Laws of the Spirit World: "There is no religion in the Spirit World. We worship one God Only"
Jaico Publishing House; Delhi, India; 817992985X; Softcover; New; 
In The Laws Of The Spirit World, author Khorshed Bhavnagri talks about spirituality, and how people should lead life on earth. The book delves into many philosophical and spiritual realms such as life-after-death, good versus evil, and freewill.Bhavnagri was inspired to write this book after her two sons, Vispi and Ratoo, were killed in a fatal car crash on February 22, 1980. A month after her sons’ passing, the author claims that she received messages from her boys asking her to communicate with them through automatic writing. The author further states that her sons were trying to guide her through her mission on Earth, which was to spread spirituality and to stay on God’s path. Through telepathy and automatic writing, Bhavnagri put together the contents of The Laws Of The Spirit World.According to the The Laws Of The Spirit World, there are seven realms of existence in the spiritual domain. The first three realms are similar to Hell, and the point is to progress towards Heaven. The text examines questions such as does a god-fearing person ever try to fool god? and what is a good deed? The author also stipulates that on Earth, evil doers have no recollection of their sins. However, after death, these individuals have to constantly confront the memories of their sins. After reading The Laws Of The Spiritual World, readers will be forced to rethink their position on concepts such as god, free will, and the meaning of life.Printed Pages: 360. 105414

Sultanate Architecture of Bengal: An Analysis of Architectural and Decorative Elements
Kaveri Book Service; New Delhi, India; 2011; 8174791094; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Various indigenous and extraneous elements of Sultanate Architecture of Bengal have been discussed in this book. How these elements are manifest in different monuments of Bengal has also been shown. The idea of mosques and tombs is itself extraneous. Muslim immigrants brought with them many characteristics and traits of architecture from their country of origin. On the other hand many local elements also crept into the joint endeavour of the conquered and conqueror, who created an architecture of a cosmopolitan character. While visiting monuments of this period one can visualise elements from Iran, Central Asia, Egypt and even from Europe vis-a-vis tahtched roofs of rural huts and elements of previous Buddhist and Hindu architectural elements originating from Bengal. Some elements may be classified as indigenous or extraneous without any doubt. But some of these elements give scope for controversy. Elements like glazed tiles and actuate system of buildings etc. are no doubt extraneous elements. On the other hand curved cornices and hut-shaped roofs of buildings etc. are of indigenous origin. Some elements are controversial, such as, small covered type mosques, profuse use of terracotta's, trefoil arched mihrab in the Adina mosque etc. All the monuments describe in this book have been visited by the author starting from 1979 A.D. Main aim and objective of this book is to trace the origin of diifferent elements of Sultanate architecture of Bengal. This book contains six chapters i.e. Sultanate Architecture of Bengal, Different Sultanate Buildings of Bangladesh, Miscellaneous Buildings, Different Elements of Sultanate Architecture of Bengal, Decoration in Sultanate Buildings and Major Findings. These chapters are supported with illustrations, notes, references, bibliography, glossary, colour photographs and will be interest to the scholars, students as well as to the general readers.Printed Pages: 303. 104246

Hymns of Guru Naka (Illustrated)
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2006; 8125011617; Reissue; Hardcover; New; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
In this translation of some of Guru Nanak’s finest devotional poems, the fifteenth century founder of the Sikh religion points the way to self-realisation by love, devotion, and service to man and God. The hymns have as direct and strong a message today as they did when they were first composed. The elements of faith and passion are sensitively brought out in Arpita Singh’s paintings which, in colour and inspired drawing, heighten the aesthetic and spiritual dimensions of Guru Nanak’s divine verse.

Burial at Sea
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2004; 0143032615; First Edition; Paperback; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
In this, his first novella in five years, one of India’s most widely read authors returns to territories he knows best: twentieth-century Indian history, bogus religion, and sexuality. After Nehru, Victor Jai Bhagwan is Mahatma Gandhi’s favourite Indian—a brilliant young man with the temperament of a leader and fiercely committed to his country. Though Victor adores and respects Gandhi, he disagrees with the Mahatma’s vision for the future of India. He returns from university in England determined to bring the benefits of modern industry to the subcontinent and, within a few years of India’s independence, becomes the country’s biggest tycoon. But this is not the only ideal of Gandhi’s that he defies: facing a midlife crisis, he falls passionately in love with a tantric god-woman (who keeps a tiger as her pet and has a dubious past). She introduces him to the pleasures of unbridled sexuality, but also becomes the reason for his downfall. Comic, tender and erotic by turns, Burial at Sea is vintage Khushwant Singh.

Truth, Love and a Little Malice: An Autobiography
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2002; 0143029576; First Edition; Paperback; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
Born in 1915 in pre-Partition Punjab, Khushwant Singh, perhaps India’s most widely read and controversial writer, has been witness to most of the major events in modern Indian history—from Independence and Partition to the Emergency and Operation Blue Star—and has known many of the figures who have shaped it. With clarity and candour, he writes of leaders like Jawaharlal Nehru and Indira Gandhi, the terrorist Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale, the talented and scandalous painter Amrita Shergil, and everyday people who became butchers during Partition. Writing of his own life, too, Khushwant Singh remains unflinchingly forthright. He records his professional triumphs and failures as a lawyer, journalist, writer and member of Parliament; the comforts and disappointments in his marriage of over sixty years; his first, awkward sexual encounter; his phobia of ghosts and his fascination with death; the friends who betrayed him, and also those whom he failed.

Delhi: A Novel
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 0140126198; First Edition; Paperback; New; 13 Cms x 20 Cms 
Thus begins Khushwant Singh’s vast, erotic, irrelevant magnum opus on the city of Delhi. The principal narrator of the saga, which extends over six hundred years, is a bawdy, ageing reprobate who loves Delhi as much as he does the hijda whore Bhagmati—half man, half woman with sexual inventiveness and energy of both the sexes. Travelling through time, space and history to ‘discover’ his beloved city, the narrator meets a myriad of people—poets and princes, saints and sultans, temptresses and traitors, emperors and eunuchs—who have shaped and endowed Delhi with its very special mystique… And as we accompany the narrator on his epic journey we find the city of emperors transformed and immortalized in our minds for ever.

Obituaries: Death at My Doorstep
Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 2009; 817436708X; First Edition; Paperback; New; 8.5 x 5.5 Inches 
For Khushwant Singh who wrote his own obituary in his twenties, death is not sacred but he reflects on it increasingly these days. In Death At My Doorstep, a collection of obituaries written over the years, he presents the dead in death, as in life—good, bad or ugly. Be it on the twilight hours of Bhutto, the gory end of Sanjay Gandhi, the sycophantic M.O. Mathai, the Marxist millionaire Rajni Patel, the overbearing Lord Mountbatten, or on his pet Alsatian Simba, each obituary bears out his irreverence or affection. Cocking a snook at death, he has also penned his own epitaph. Yet outliving those whom he admired has moved him to tears, and many of his obituaries have left the reader with a heavy heart. While Death At My Doorstep is Khushwant Singh’s demystification of death, it also ferries his message to Badey Mian, in the words of Allama Iqbal: Baagh-e-bahisht say mujhay hukm-e-safar diya thha kyon? Kaar-e-Jahaan daraaz hai, ab meyra intazaar kar. (Why did you order me out of the garden of paradise? I have a lot of work that remains unfulfilled; now you better wait for me.)

India: An Introduction
Vision Books/Orient Paperbacks; New Delhi, India; 8170943876; Softcover; New; 
India: An Introduction is a highly readable and rewarding initiation into a complex, ancient civilization, by one of India's most widely-read writers and journalists.Khushwant Singh tells the story of the land and its people from the earliest time to the present day. In broad, vivid sweeps he encapsulates the saga of the upheavals of a sub-continent over five millennia, and how their interplay over the centuries has moulded the India of today. More, Khushwant Singh offers perceptive insights into everything Indian that may catch one's eye or arouse curiosity: its ethnic diversity, religions, customs, philosophy, art and culture, political currents, and the galaxy of men and women who have helped shape its intricately inlaid mosaic. He is also an enlightening guide to much else: India's extensive and varied architectural splendours, its art and classical literature.Khushwant Singh's own fascination with the subject is contagious, showing through on every page, and in every sidelight that he recounts. India: An Introduction holds strong appeal for just about anyone. who has more than a passing interest in the country, Indians as well as those who are drawn to it from farther afield. And for a traveller, it is that rare companion: erudite, intelligent, lively.Printed Pages: 216. 106661

Sahibs Who Loved India
Penguin/Viking; New Delhi, India; 2010; 0143415808; First Edition; Paperback; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
A rare collection of essays that invites the reader to revisit a vanished era of sahibs and memsahibs. From Lord Mountbatten to Peggy Holroyde to Maurice and Taya Zinkin, Britishers who lived and worked in India reminisce about topics and points of interest as varied as the Indian Civil Service and the Roshanara Club, shikar and hazri, the Amateur Cine Society of India and the Doon School, Rudyard Kipling and Mahatma Gandhi. Selected from a series of articles commissioned by Khushwant Singh when he was the editor of the Illustrated Weekly of India these delightfully individualistic and refreshingly candid writings reveal a fascinating array of British attitudes, experiences, observations, fond memories, the occasional short-lived grouses and, above all, a deep and abiding affection and respect for India.

The following quotations from the book speak for t h e author’s rational and pragmatic approach to the whole issue.“Spirit of patriotism must come from within. It is not to be injected. ”“ There may be hundred reasons to hate each other but the balance shall always tilt in favour of innumerable reasons to love each other .” “Religion is also a moral code and moral codes may differ . One should learn to live with a difference. Moral codes and beliefs should not divide the people. We can 't build Rome in a day but we have to give a wakeup call for mental transformation.Printed Pages: 280. 106188

Title of the book ''Maulana Abul Kalam Azad and APJ Abdul Kalam-Exemplary legends for All Times'' is a clear indication of what the book contains. Both these great sons of India shall always be remembered for their respective contributions to our country. Maulana Azad will be remembered for his spiritual intellect and political achievements as also for the sacrifices he made for the country, particularly in an extremely adverse pre-partition situation while APJ Abdul Kalam would be remembered for his technical contribution to the country and as a symbol and practical example of India really being a secular country in which son of a Muslim fisherman can become Head of the state .Let the nation salute both of them for centuries and centuries to come. For a thousand years the Narcissus has been lamenting its blindness; with great difficulty the ones with true vision are born.

Under the visible life
Hachette India/Prakash Books; New Delhi, India; 1781256381; Softcover; New; 
Half Chinese and half Canadian, Katherine Goodnow struggles through a 1950's childhood hostile to all she represents. Then, as a teenager, she discovers jazz, and her life is transformed. Her talent for the piano brings her freedom, adventure and a sense of purpose, helping her survive unexpected motherhood and her incurable love for the unreliable father of her children. Half American and half Afghani, Mahsa Weaver is only twelve when, after the death of her parents, she is sent to live with strict relatives in Karachi. Struggling to break free, she escapes to Montreal, but the threads of her past are not so easily severed and she finds herself forced into an arranged marriage. For Mahsa, too, music becomes her solace and passion, allowing her to dare to dream of a life that is really her own. When these two women meet in New York, they begin a friendship that will change everything. Vividly rendered and sweeping in scope, under the visible life is a stunning meditation on how hope can remain alive in the darkest of times, if we have someone with whom to share our burdens.

"Elämää rahaa käärien ja velkoen": Pohjois-Karjalan maaseudun sekatavarakauppiaat ja heidän velallisensa 1860- ja 1870-Luvulla
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2001; 9517463022; New; 
Sekatavarakaupat ovat harveneva, mutta yhä suomalaiseen maaseutumiljööseen olennaisena osana kuuluva näky. Tämä maalaisromanttinen ilmiö on kuitenkin suomalaisena instituutiona nuori: ensimmäiset kaupat perustettiin vasta 1860 – tätä ennen kaupanpito oli maaseudulla kiellettyä. Kaarniranta luo teoksessaan elävän, monipuolisen kuvan näistä maaseudun sekatavarakaupan todellisista tienraivaajista, ensimmäisistä kauppiaista, jotka yrityksen ja erehdyksen kautta opettelivat kaupanteon saloja. Teos ei keskity kuitenkaan yksinomaan sekatavarakauppaan, vaan kiinnittää huomiota myös kauppiaiden monipuolisiin eri alojen liiketoimiin. Printed Pages: 272. 115777

Suurvallan rajalla kertoo ihmisistä ja heidän elämästään 1600-luvun rajaseudulla, Karjalassa.

Suomalainen Kapina: Talonpoikaislevottomuudet ja poliittisen kulttuurin muutos Ruotsin ajalla (n. 1150-1800)
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2002; 9517463065; New; 
Teos kertoo, kuinka tavallinen ihminen nousi esivaltaa vastaan. Aseellinen kapina, erilaiset protestit ja tottelemattomuus olivat talonpoikien tapoja osallistua politiikkaan. Kirjan tapahtumat sijoittuvat aikavälille Lallin verityöstä 1150-luvulla Ruotsin ajan loppuun. Pitkä tarkasteluväli tuo esiin muuttumattomalta näyttävän menneisyyden suuret muutokset. Tapahtumat kuvataan tarkasti, kapinallisille annetaan kasvot. Talonpoikaa vastassa olivat kirkko, kruunu tai aateli, joskus kaikki yhdessä. Mutta myös talonpojat etsivät liittolaisia. Kapinat paljastavat myös sen, kuinka esivalta alamaisiaan hallitsi. Printed Pages: 531. 115897

Pääosassa Suomen Kansa
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 9517460961; New; 
Pääosassa Suomen kansa on tutkimus 1930-luvun elokuvasta. Se selvittää kahden suurimman elokuvavalmistamon, Suomi-Filmin ja Suomen Filmiteollisuuden, nopeata nousua lamavuoden kriisistä ja niiden kiihtyvää keskinäistä kilpailua oikeudesta määrittää kansallisen elokuvan olemusta.Teos rakentuu tapaustutkimuksista – historiallisia elokuvia, komedioita ja ajankohtaiselokuvaa – ja kysyy, miten ja miksi ajatus omaleimaisesta ja omavaraisesta suomalaisesta elokuvasta nousi 1930-luvulla keskeiseksi elokuvantekoa jäsentäväksi tekijäksi. 114995
