No Limits: Media Studies from India (Oxford India Studies in Contemporary Society)
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2013; 019808398X; Hardcover; New; New; 
India after globalization is an increasingly mediatized society. Today, media experiences, desires, dream worlds, and fears have enveloped our time with force that was unimagined before. The blurring of the private and the public is now dramatically visible. The `power of media` is a core explanatory category in public and academic common sense. No Limits maps the emergence of this mediatized world, and reflects on its wideranging consequences. The volume approaches this transformation of India from the prism of media studies. With essays authored by well-known scholars in the fields of cinema, television, radio, music, print, and the Internet, it presents a wide ranging and fresh perspective on our mediamodernity. From media in the colonial era to contemporary experiences after globalization, it provides a long-term, comparative perspective to the present transformations. No Limits maps new connections between old and new media, and sets up questions for addressing past and present. Presenting the media in India as a prism through which millions access the world, this volume will be indispensable to common citizens, students and scholars of sociology, social anthropology, media and cultural studies, mass communication, political science, and history Printed Pages: 440. 110243

The Melodramatic Public: Film Form and Spectatorship in Indian Cinema
Permanent Black; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8178242621; First Indian Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
What role has Indian cinema played in the history of Indian cultural and political transformations? How have Indian films addressed notions of nationhood, ideas about nation and region, matters of social difference, and conflicts over caste and religion? What cultural visions can be traced through the history of Indian cinema, and how have their co-ordinates changed? What new vistas have emerged—of national territory, new lifestyles, and urban cultures—as India has moved from the early days of state formation, through the unravelling of national consensus, down to contemporary globalization? The Melodramatic Public explores these issues as they play out in different historical moments, and in response to larger theoretical formulations—for example, vis-à-vis the place of film in discourses of secularism and citizenship. At the same time, it deploys the category of melodrama to navigate this variegated field. Drawing on debates in film studies, it reveals how melodrama relates the public and the private, as well as modes of aesthetic expression, in different historical and cultural settings. Vasudevan explores significant crossovers and comparative registers in Indian and American cinema, as well as changes in the nature of Indian cinema and melodramatic form, especially between the ‘classical’ 1950s and the contemporary period. Several features make this a work of seminal importance in film studies. First, it moves away from generalities about the ways in which film represents or contributes to large political and cultural issues: it does so by attending to the specifics of cultural address, film style, and film technology. Second, it analyses the transformation of the film industry since the 1990s in terms of the changing location of cinema in a new globalized environment. Third, it considers the impact of digitization, both in terms of film form and audience engagement, and through the new circuits of distribution and delivery. Vasudevan lays great emphasis on film analysis to explore significant practices and changes in the realm of cinema and the world around it. While primarily focused on popular cinema, his book also devotes attention to the work of Satyajit Ray, as well as to the practices of art cinema and documentarists in present times.

Shipbuilding in India: Challenges and Strategies
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8190743147; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
As a maritime nation, warship-building is an essential element of the India's national security strategy construct. India produces world class warships but still lags behind the world leaders in the production of large commercial vessels. Even so, warshipbuilding processes and practices need to be improved further, so that the industry does not impose increasingly high opportunity costs on scarce national security resources. This volume highlights the challenges that bear upon the shipbuilding industry in India, and the response strategies and mechanisms that need to be resorted to, in order to overcome the challenges. It consists of contributions by renowned experts from across the shipbuilding community, be it the yards or their customers, from India as also from abroad. A brief but succinct overview of the industry in the international context is followed by a detailed examination of the state of the industry in India. The chapters that follow then delve deeper into specific issues like infrastructure constraints in Indian shipyards as also material management issues, capacity limitations and the path to indigenous warship building. The volume also highlights best practices and lessons learned from the design, production and procurement processes of some leading European yards. Efficient shipbuilding is not merely a production issue, particularly for warships wherein stringent government specified acquisition procedures often apply. Not surprisingly, many new developments have taken place worldwide in acquisition processes and procedures as well. The warship acquisition process in the United Kingdom and the US Navy’s ship acquisition procedure have also been dealt with in detail, so that appropriate lessons emerge.The volume will, thus, be very useful for policy makers, shipbuilding industry personnel both from the technical and non-technical streams, study groups and individual scholars, both from within and outside the shipbuilding community.Printed Pages: 222. 104432

Marrying in South Asia: Shifting Concepts, Changing Practices in a Globalising World
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8125053557; Hardcover; New; New; 
Marriage has long been central to the study of kinship and family and to imaginings of culture, identity and citizenship. If the deeply gendered nature of marriage has been critiqued by feminist researchers, the conjugal contract has been the subject of debate in the legal domain and the economics of marriage and of the wedding ceremony figure in the discourse on development.Engaging with these and other strands is Marrying in South Asia, a volume which looks closely at Bangladeshi, Pakistani and south Indian Muslims, Bhutanese ethnic groups, Nepali widows, the Sri Lankan Tamil diaspora, south Asian gays and lesbians, middle class and urban, working class communities and many other groups. With the globalising world as the backdrop, the essays trace the encounters with changing notions and practices of marriage. The book examines processes that make a marriage, the implications of non-marriage or its end and the acknowledgement of multiple sexualities, as well as the contestations and conflicts, including in the law courts, that are part of the institution. The integration of the larger economic and political contexts in understandings of personal relations around marriage is significant. The diverse ethnographic accounts, demographic analyses and economic investigations provide a wider window to marriage than is usually available in a single volume.Printed Pages: 440. 101757

Religion, Violence and Political Mobilisation in South Asia
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2005; 0761934308; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
An oft-neglected theme in studies on communal violence is the role of the state, particularly of its institutions of law enforcement and policing. Recent experience with religion-based violence in South Asia—particularly, the 2002 riots in Gujarat—has brought into sharp focus this relationship between communal violence and partisan state institutions. The seven essays in this anthology—written by eminent authors from diverse traditions of anthropology, history, politics and sociology—critically re-examine the symbolism, scale and nature of communal violence in South Asia in view of the state’s changing image. Moving beyond cliched explanations of riots, the contributors: - Map the contemporary discourse on Hindu-Muslim violence and focus on the causes of communal violence as well as its long-term consequences - Situate the nation-state within the incidents of violence—variously termed ethnic, communal and everyday violence—that simultaneously frame and challenge the authority of the state - Locate the current discussion on violence and the state in Pakistan, and provide a general thematic overview of religion and state institutions in Pakistan - Expand various categories of violence to present a South Asian perspective vis-a-vis the current western discourse on `global terrorism`.

Too Many Men, Too Few Women: Social Consequences of Gender Imbalance in India and China
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2016; 8125062491; Hardcover; New; New; 
The gender balance in Asia is significantly shaped by the male-biased sex ratios of two of its most populous countries, China and India. The rapid fertility declines in the two countries, resulting from China's one-child policy and India's two-child norm, combined with the advent of sex determination technologies, has contributed to the birth of fewer girls. As a result of these factors, both countries now have an excess of males and a shortage of females.There is increasing concern over the likely adverse consequences of such highly masculine populations. Most work on adverse sex ratios has dealt with the identification, patterns and causes of skewed sex ratios; Too Many Men, Too Few Women is the first book to focus specifically on the social consequences of the skewed sex ratio in both India and China. Well-known sociologists, economists and demographers come together to explore the social consequences of a skewed sex ratio from varied perspectives: the position of women in communities with fewer women; the likely increase in incidents of crime and violence; the impact on cultural practices such as dowry and bride price, as well as on domestic violence; and possible policy and reform measures that governments can undertake to correct the gender imbalance.Based on new empirical work and ethnographical accounts, this book takes a critical look at demographic approaches and policies in both India and China. It will be essential reading for students and scholars of sociology, as well as researchers, policymakers, and funding agencies involved in population studies and problems related to male-biased sex ratios.

Gandhian Thought: New World New Dimensions
Kalpaz Publications/Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd; New Delhi, India; 2009; 817835800X; Softcover; New; 
If there is only one book about Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi that you need to read today, make “Gandhian Thought, New World, New Dimensions” by Ravindra Kumar be the book. There are many Gandhian scholars around the world but Kumar is peerless. What sets Kumar apart from the other scholars is that like Gandhi he is Indian, and he understands the culture and customs behind the teachings and the philosophy. One can never study Gandhi and try to separate him from his ethnology. He is a noteworthy researcher. Kumar’ s interpretation of Gandhi and his ideas is outstanding. Kumar, an educator who has authored over a hundred books, has emerged as one of the great thinkers of our time, and a leading Gandhian scholar. In this book he articulates on “Satyagraha,” the “Sustainable Culture of Peace” and how the Gandhian philosophy applies in current international conflicts, Sudan, Myanmar, Iraq, Iran, and outer countries. The book also addresses the fundamental question, “is Gandhi relevant today?” This book should be a required reading for all individuals who are interested in peace and the Gandhian theory. This book is a necessary read.Printed Pages: 152. 106269

Kundalini and Self-Realization: The Journey Back to Our True Home Through Spiritual Energy
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8178224232; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
Every human being has spiritual Energy which is asleep below the base of the spine. This Energy, which is responsible for involution and later for evolution, is known as Kundalini in the East, where its related theory is developed to the highest extent. Almost all religions and faiths have their own practices to awaken this Energy, which leads to liberation from falsehood and Self-Realization. The purpose of this book is to show that Kundalini is the common denominator in most religions. It is shown that householders have greater chances of success and lesser problems than celibates. The awakening takes place when the masculine and feminine aspects in the aspirant have come to a balance, and this brings an overall change in the personality, as a result of rebirth. Normally we have a fixed destiny. The "psychic sense" flashes some important events which could be turning points. The exercise of "free will" can change the course of events. Over several life-times the Soul develops a separate personality, called Psychic Being or High-Self, which connects the Soul to God. A person with awakened Kundalini becomes the master of his own destiny, the cycle of death and rebirth is broken and the ultimate reality "Existence-Knowledge-Bliss" is realized.Printed Pages: 253. 102246

Towards a Nonviolent Mind
Paljor Publications/Library of Tibetan Works & Archives; New Delhi, India; 2012; 9789380359618; Softcover; New; 
How can we reduce the violence going on around us and lead happier more meaningful lives? What can we do to change a fearful or anxious state of mind into one that is relaxed, happy and compassionate in order to benefit ourselves and others?. In this book, the authors provide impressive answers and practical solutions to these questions. By bringing forward the combined 20-year work of Western Scientists and Tibetan Meditators (including the Mind & Life group led by H. H. the Dalai Lama) Cutting edge research is offered for transforming the mind from a negative to a positive state. The seamless span of History for the past four thousand years of nonviolence practice across major religious, spiritual and secular groups is examined to compliment the wave of success for nonviolent people movements over the past 100 years (included are the Tunisian and Egyptian Revolutions of 2011 as well as the Occupy Wall Street Movement of 2011/12). The authors provide an engaging picture of the problems facing us in today's society like the fear and threat of terrorism, and the broader social concerns of damage to the Environment and declining standards of living. They offer advice to the seven billionth human who has just arrived on the planet and urge the building blocks of universal human values, a global Ethics and a more compassionate way of life which is required if the human species is to survive. We no longer have the luxury of choice between violence and nonviolence. It is now nonviolence or nonexistence.Printed Pages: 312. 103609

Empire in the Age of Globalisation: US Hegemony and Neoliberal Disorder
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2007; 8125031952; First Edition; Paperback; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
Empire in the Age of Globalisation is perfect for students of globalisation and international studies. It is a comprehensive critical introduction to the relationship between US hegemony and contemporary globalisation. Many introductory textbooks on globalisation tend to be simplistic and conservative. This book moves things forward, providing a critical review of the globalisation debate. Kiely argues that we can only approach a proper understanding of the contemporary world order by linking globalisation to debates on capitalism, imperialism and universal human rights. He explores US hegemony in this light, showing how ‘liberal internationalism’ cannot be separated from capitalism, neo-liberalism and US empire building. Covering all the major issues, from globalisation theory to international economics, cultural imperialism and global governance, this will be of interest to anyone looking for a refreshing analytical approach.

An Introduction to Swaminarayan Hinduism
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2001; 0521652790; First Edition; Cloth; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
An Introduction to Swaminarayan Hinduism is a comprehensive study of a modern form of Hinduism that is growing in the place of its birth in the Indian state of Gujarat and among Indian immigrants in east Africa, Great Britain, and the United States. It is the most prominent form of transnational Hinduism because it creates networks that define and preserve ethnic and religious identity in the modern context of rapid mobility and communication. Founded by Sahajanand Swami or Swaminarayan (1781–1830), a religious reformer in a time of great social and political change in Gujarat, Swaminarayan Hinduism expounds a path of devotion to Swaminarayan as the final, perfect manifestation of God. Raymond Brady Williams provides a detailed introduction to the history, theology, discipline, and ritual of this important form of Hinduism. Based on and extending, with considerable updating and revision, his A New Face of Hinduism: The Swaminarayan Religion (Cambridge, 1984), the book places Swaminarayan in the context of transnational Hinduism and analyses its current status in India and abroad. Reviews ‘A much-needed descriptive account.’ Times Literary Supplement ‘This work is most valuable as a reference source on the Swaminarayan movement.’ The Journal of Asian Studies ‘A book every Hindu would do well to read.’ East and West Series Printed Pages: 266 pages with 18 half-tones, 6 tables and 3 figures. 031382

Christian Pluralism in the United States: The Indian Immigrant Experience
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 1996; 0521570166; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
Recent immigrant Christians from India are changing the face of American Christianity. They are establishing churches with Orthodox, Protestant, and Catholic rites. This book is the first comprehensive study of these Christians, their churches, and their adaptation. Professor Williams describes migration patterns since 1965, and how the role of Indian Christian nurses in creating immigration opportunities for their families affects gender relations, transition of generations, interpretations of migration, Indian Christian family values, and types of leadership. Contemporary mobility and rapid communication create new transnational religious groups, and Williams reveals some of the reverse effects on churches and institutions in India. He notes some successes and failures of mediating institutions in the United States in responding to new forms of Christianity brought by immigrants. Contents Introduction; 1. Road to America; 2. Christian stories about India; 3. Becoming what you are: St Thomas Christians from Kerala; 4. Becoming what you are: Catholics and Protestants from India; 5. Wilderness, exile or promised land: experience and interpretations of migration; 6. Going home: bridges to India; 7.

Religions of Immigrants from India and Pakistan: New Threads in the American Tapestry
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 1988; 0521359619; First Edition; Paperback; Fine; 16 Cms x 24 Cms 
Landmark changes in the immigration law of 1965 admitted to the United States large numbers of immigrants from India and Pakistan. The religious groups formed by these new immigrants have exerted and will continue to exert significant influence upon the fabric of American religion and culture. This book is the first comprehensive study of the religious groups formed in the United States by Asian-Indian and Pakistani immigrants and of their patterns of adaptation and organization. Professor Williams provides an overview of the variety of religions practiced by these new immigrants, examining Hindu, Muslim, Christian, Sikh, Jain, Zoroastrian, and Jewish communities, and the size and character of the various groups formed. Through analysis of demographic statistics as well as information gathered in extensive interviews with religious group participants, Professor Williams examines the trajectories of adaptation charted by these groups through the involvement in a wide range of ecumenical, ethnic, sectarian, and national organizations. Detailed descriptions of Swaminarayan Hindus and Nizari Ismili Muslims, two diverse religious communities, illustrate the national growth of immigrant religious groups and the formative power of their adaptive strategies, while religious profiles of Asian-Indian and Pakistani religious groups in Chicago and Houston illustrate varying patterns of development of these groups, Professor Williams assesses the current problems and prospects of Asian-Indian and Pakistani religious organizations and the influence of these groups on the shape of religion in America. Contents Preface; Introduction; Part I. The People and Their Religions: 1. A new pattern: made in the USA; 2. The religions: Hinduism, Jainism, and Sikhism; 3.

The Eagle and the Elephant: Strategic Aspects of US-India Economic Engagement
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2011; 0198072511; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
The Eagle and the Elephant shows how economic engagement directly affects the way the United States cooperates with India on strategic issues. Through case studies of major efforts, including civil nuclear cooperation, services outsourcing, antiterrorism, and electricity generation and the environment, Raymond E. Vickery, Jr., presents both successful and unsuccessful instances of complex collaborations between the two nations. Vickery draws on his own experience in the US Commerce Department and as an economic consultant. Buttressed by information from official sources, journalistic accounts, and interviews, he offers new insight into the interplay of legislative and executive branch officials, policy proponents, business and nonprofi t organizations, and activists. He explores how the US employs commercial diplomacy as only one component of an overall economic engagement in the formation and implementation of foreign policy. This interaction, Vickery argues, has the potential to increase inter-governmental confidence and cooperation in areas vital to both countries and to world security and peace.

Legacies of Colonial English: Studies in Transported Dialects
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2005; 0521830206; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 228 x 152 Mm 
As a result of colonization, many varieties of English now exist around the world. Legacies of Colonial English brings together a team of internationally-renowned scholars to discuss the role of British dialects in both the genesis and subsequent history of postcolonial Englishes. Considering the input of Scottish, English and Irish dialects, they closely examine a wide range of Englishes - including those in North and South America, South Africa, Asia, Australia, and New Zealand - and explain why many of them still reflect non-standard British usage from the distant past. Complete with a checklist of dialect features, a detailed glossary and set of general references on the topic of postcolonial Englishes, this book will be an invaluable source to scholars and students of English Language and Linguistics, particularly those interested in sociolinguistics, historical linguistics and dialectology. • The first comprehensive book devoted to the legacy of British dialects in extraterritorial Englishes • The contributors include many of the leading scholars in the field • The different social and linguistic conditions in the various settings under discussion are taken fully into account, rather than one explanatory model being expected to serve for all cases Contents Introduction Raymond Hickey; Part I.

Kinship and Rituals among the Meo of Northern India: Locating Sibling Relationship
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2003; 0195664590; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book presents the kinship system of the Meo, a Muslim community of Rajput caste of north India, where the brother sister relationship transcends the distinctions between consanguines and affines to pervade relations both before and after marriage. In terms of family and kinship, and associated ceremonies, myths and legends, the Meo have long been regarded as unusual among Indian Muslims. They forbid what is regarded as a diacritical Muslim kinship practice patrilineal parallel-cousin marriage as well as cross-cousin marriage, and follow north Indian, Hindu kinship rules. In this book, the author engages with classical kinship themes: the Meo kinship terminology the relation of kinship and territory marriage alliance and marriage rituals and prestations.

Gandhi, Bose, Nehru and the Making of the Modern Indian Mind
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2004; 0670058009; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
This intellectual history of twentieth-century Indian nationalist thought examines the relationship between three key figures of modern Indian history and the influence their ideas had in the shaping of society and politics in independent India. As leaders of the anti-imperialist struggle, Gandhi, Bose and Nehru not only devised various strategies to overthrow colonial rule, but also grappled with vital issues—democracy, federalism, secularism, social justice, gender equality, modernity, national identity, and international relations—regarding the future of India. In this fresh and insightful analysis, Reba Som contrasts and juxtaposes the thoughts and responses of the three leaders to changing political and social conditions—from Gandhi's faith in local self-governance and village-centric institutions to Nehru's liberal values of secularism, equity and democracy and his belief in a planned economy to Bose's struggle to project India's concerns on the international stage. She draws chiefly on their own writings and speeches to show the evolution of their thinking in all its ambivalence, complexity and contradiction. In the process, she also offers a reassessment of Bose, often seen as a challenger to Gandhi, and emphasizes that Gandhi and Bose, despite fundamental ideological and political differences, shared much in common in temperament, foundational values and beliefs and styles of functioning than perhaps even they themselves acknowledged. In showing how the intellectual and political legacy of Gandhi, Bose and Nehru contributed to the making of the modern Indian mind, Reba Som's book becomes as much an examination of our present as it is an analysis of India's fight against colonial rule and the struggle to define the country's post-independence identity as a socialist secular democratic republic.

Reconstructing Tradition: Advaita Acarya and Gaudiya Vaisnavism at the Cusp of the Twentieth Century
Columbia University Press; New York, USA; 2005; 0231129548; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 16 Cms x 24 Cms 
Advaita Acarya was one of the leading figures in the genesis of the Bengali Vaisnava movement in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. Though crucial to the movement's origins, Advaita's standing among subsequent generations of Bengali Vaisnavas began to fade, only to be reestablished once again during the nineteenth century. In her groundbreaking study, Rebecca Manring examines the ways in which Advaita's followers used his life story to define, preserve, and reconstruct a political and religious movement. Manring's illuminating and detailed readings of Middle Bengali and Sanskrit texts reveal the evolving hagiographical traditions concerning Advaita. Her work also presents new perspectives on theological issues within the Bengali Vaisnava tradition, the role of sacred biography, and the religious history of South Asia. Advaita rose to prominence as the older teacher and right-hand man to Caitanya, the founder of the Vaisnava movement. As a Brahman, Advaita also helped the movement gain acceptance among the religious establishment. However, his school and its promotion of conservative brahman values began to lose adherents in the next generation as other, less tradition-bound groups came to the fore. In the late nineteenth century his followers reasserted their place in Bengali Vaisnavism by demonstrating, through their hagiographies, that they alone represented Caitanya's, and hence Advaita's, original vision and that they alone had kept it untainted despite the potential for contamination from external forces. Manring analyzes how members of Advaita's school used established imagery and techniques to sustain their claim for the religious superiority of an individual and recreated themselves in light of the changing political and social contexts of nineteenth-century Bengal.

Historic Temples in Pakistan: A Call to Conscience
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 9789383098491; Softcover; New; 
Historic Temples in Pakistan: A Call to Conscience makes a case for keeping ancient emblems of faith alive and for pluralism in a land of irony that has been home to multiple ancient faiths yet stands besieged by unpalatable extremism. It also aspires to enshrine the ideal of liberty.By framing an all-inclusive piety, this book sets out to ignite a discourse and the collective conscience of a nation numbed into silence, fear or the false conviction of the supremacy of a singular religion—to institutionalise the fundamental right of will.Elaborately embellished with evocative photographs of antiquated and exquisite Hindu shrines, opulent rituals and festivals and regional populace, the chronicle has extensive research and exceptional pilgrimage sites—Hinglaj, Katas Raj, Kalka Cave Temple, Panchmukhi Hanuman Mandir and Shivala Mandir, to name a few.While vivid introductions and sweeping images present the landscape and the social fabric of a territory, the redolence of celebrations spread passion and fervour. A special article introduces the extraordinary Fakira, last of the human hands behind idols in Pakistan.Humanity is cast as the oldest of creeds and as the reason for faiths. Therefore, devotion cannot be reserved for a sole Call to Prayer.Printed Pages: 296 with 429 colour & 3 b/w photographs. 106596

Ajmer Sharif: Awakening of Sufism in South Asia
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 2017; 9789385285646; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Ajmer Sharif, the heart of homage for thousands of all faiths, welcomes a tidal wave of humanity for the saint known as Gharib Nawaz (Benefactor of the Poor), whose spiritual order is the most lyrical and inclusive. This book showcases the absolute necessity of Khwaja Muinuddin Chishti in our conflicted times. Today, he is a signpost of unity; a reminder of the relevance of Sufism as a conduit of harmony and justice. These pages narrate the story of the founder of the Chishti Sufi Order in South Asia-who knew that hunger supersedes doctrines-and of his movement, which began in a mud hut over eight centuries ago. Muinuddin Chishti brought qawwali, the genre of Sufi devotional recitals, and the ideal of acceptance to the world. He discouraged religious supremacy and patriarchy by example-his wife was a central leader and his only daughter became a caliph-an aspect practised at his seat, but cast off by other shrines of his lineage. An elaborately researched oeuvre on the history, spiritual journey, mystical power and legacy of the 12th century Sufi giant-rich with accounts of Mughal devotees, monuments, rituals and over 200 unique, evocative photographs-Ajmer Sharif traces the life of the saint and reveals the living force of his shrine.

Practicing Greatness: 7 Disciplines of Extraordinary Spiritual Leaders
Times Group Books; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8126525029; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
Spiritual leaders--clergy, lay, seminary, higher education--typically do not aspire to greatness, for fear of seeming to lack humility or seeming to presume to know God's plan for their lives. Yet greatness is just what churches, seminaries, and institutions of higher education need, just as much if not more so than secular corporations and organizations. Leaders need to know the ingredients of greatness, the 7 central disciplines they must cultivate if they are to move from good enough to truly great.Printed Pages: 192. 104785

The Awakening Body: Somatic Meditation for Discovering Our Deepest Life
Shambhala Publication/TBI; New Delhi, India; 1611803713; Softcover; New; 
Joy and freedom are the essence of who we are—yet our conceptual filters keep us from connecting to this wonderful inherent truth about ourselves. But the solution to the problem is literally right at our fingertips (and feet, head, and ears): the body. When we learn to see through the mind-body dichotomy we also see through the unreality of the painful knots we tend to tie ourselves in.Reggie Ray presents here six fundamental practices that enable us to use the body itself as a supremely powerful tool for connecting us to the joyful reality of who we really are. These practices allow us to bypass the mental fabrications that keep us from experiencing our world and lead us directly to the richness of living a fully present, embodied human life.

25397 Reginald A. Ray; Foreword By Tulku Thondup
Secret of the Vajra World: The Tantric Buddhism of Tibet (The World of Tibetan Buddhism: Volume Two)
Shambhala; Boston, USA; 2002; 157062917X; First Edition; Paperback; New; 15.5 Cms x 23 Cms 
This book provides an entrée into the Tantric (or Vajrayana) Buddhism of Tibet, as conveyed by Tibetan masters teaching in the West, and as received by their Western students. The Tantric tradition is a unique collection of lesser-known texts, concepts, and meditation practices that are usually made available only to experienced and specially initiated practitioners. The "Vajra World" (vajradhatu in Sanskrit) is a realm of indestructibility, the level of reality beyond all thought and imagination, all impermanence and change, which a fully realized person knows and inhabits. Used metaphorically, "Vajra World" refers to the traditional culture of Tibet and the unique spirituality that is its secret strength. Topics include: The tantric view of human nature and the external world The special role of the guru, or tantric mentor The preliminary practices that prepare the student for full initiation The major dimensions of Vajrayana practice, including visualizations, liturgies, and inner yogas The tradition of the tulku, or incarnate lama The lore surrounding the death of ordinary people and of saints The practice of solitary retreat, the epitome of traditional Tibetan Buddhism Secret of the Vajra World is the companion volume to the author's earlier book, Indestructible Truth: The Living Spirituality of Tibetan Buddhism. While that book focuses on the history, cosmology, philosophy, and practice of the more public, exoteric side of Tibetan Buddhism, this work treats its more hidden and esoteric aspects as they take shape in Vajrayana. Together, the two volumes provide a broad introduction to the major traditions of Tibetan Buddhism. Printed Pages: 540. 022675
