5503 Chatura Rao
Meanwhile, Upriver
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0143101544; First Edition; Paperback; New; 13 Cms x 20 Cms 
In the bylanes and ghats of Kashi, or Banaras, Yamini’s and Shiva’s stories unfold. Fat, sharp-tongued Yamini is thirty-eight and unmarried. By day she teaches maths in school. At night she leaves her obese self behind and takes to the skies, light as a bird in her dreams, dancing in the air above the ghats with the love of her life. The ghat is also where Shiva, now eleven years old, was found abandoned by his adoptive father, the charismatic and ambitious sadhu Bhyom Baba. Growing up in Baba’s ashram near Dashaswamedh Ghat, Shiva eavesdrops on the conversations of sadhus as they pass through the ashram, and hopes to some day find his mother among the women thronging the ghats. One day, Yamini meets Duncan, a researcher, who unlocks the romantic in her and suddenly she feels like the person from her dreams, light and loved. In another part of the city, Shiva is chosen to enact the role of chhota Hanuman in the Ramnagar Ramlila. There he befriends the shy, quiet Shantanu, who plays the part of Janaki, Ram’s wife. Against the backdrop of the Lila, where political battlelines have been drawn by the city’s rival ashram factions, the final horrific truth about Shiva’s life is revealed, and his story merges with Yamini’s. Meanwhile, Upriver is about two outsiders struggling to find the courage to swim upriver, till an unforeseen connection brings them together. Resonating with the sights and sounds of an ancient place in the heart of modern India, this remarkable debut novel tells a story that is at once poignant and captivating. Printed Pages: 216. 029133

Krish Malhotra meets Ananya Swaminathan at IIM Ahmedabad where they are both pursuing an M.B.A. Ananya’s charm and good looks bring her to the fore of the popularity chart at the Institute and although Krish finds her very appealing, this reputation makes him wary of her. Ananya enlists Krish’s help who is an IIT graduate and the duo began their friendship. Soon this friendship blossoms into love and the pair become inseparable.The real story begins in their last year at the Institute when having moved past all of the other person’s idiosyncrasies, the two are resolved to tie their love through the bond of marriage. However, they aren’t the only ones involved in this decision and although they are in love, there is the question of their families. With the parents not accepting their love, Ananya is sent off to meet Tamil Brahmin boys while Krish is sent off to meet respectable Punjabi girls. However, Krish cannot forget Ananya and is the same with her and he embarks on a quest to win over her family to finally marry her.Through a number of amusing and misfortunate clashes, the families disapprove of this union due to their cultural and ethnic differences. The magic that is Bhagat’s gift in storytelling is his use of humor and candor and he employs these devices to full use in this story where the North-South polarities provide generous comedic effect. Narrated from Krish’s point of view, a first person narrative, 2 States: The Story Of My Marriage is an infectiously lighthearted read that digs at the ethnic gap between Indian communities. The rights of the book have been sold to producer Nadiadwala who is adapting the warm tale for the big screen. Printed Pages: 268. 107280

Sastric Tradation in Indian Classical Dances
Agam Kala Prakashan; Delhi, India; 2015; 8173201390; Hardcover; New; New; 19 x 26 Cm 
The book 'Sastric Tradition in Indian Classical Dances' focuses on textual tradition of performing arts (in the context of dance only). The rules pertaining to the fourfold Abhinaya in Natyasastra and other Sanskrta Laksana Granthas are correspondingly imperative and valid for all the classical dance forms even today. It is well known that our youngsters are much comfortable with English and for them Sanskrta appears to be an alien language, similar is the case with Rajabhasa Hindi. Keeping this in mind and for the benefit of non-Hindi speaking readers and researchers of India and abroad the present work is attempted in English. I hope it will serve the purpose and benefit the enthusiasts.Printed Pages: 248. 101521

Tribal Peasant Unrest: A Paradox in Welfare Administration
Kaveri Book Service; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8174791302; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Tribals of Orissa are marginal farmers who besides tilling the soil and domesticating livestock depend on forest products for their sustenance. They are loyal and peace loving people with low level of aspirations. The British Government policy was carefully formulated to deal with the aboriginal and sensitive tribal communities. In Mayurbhanj, an erstwhile feudatory State of Orissa with sixty two tribal groups, the experience was slightly different. Notwithstanding the welfare administration and cautious handling of the sensitive tribals, political disturbance cropped up at intervals for various socio-economic reasons which had to be tactfully dealt with by the local Chiefs through whom the British Government ran the show. Simultenous to the Congress movement, the peasants were organized as Prajamandals to spearhead the popular struggle till 1947 when the Chief handed over power to the Prajamandal leaders. The author brings under focus the tribal peasants uprising with great sympathy and understanding in the present book giving great insight to the troublesome period of Indian history.Printed Pages: 310.l 104238

A result of over twelve years of painstaking research and meditation, Professor Huang has created a work that promises to be widely acclaimed and become a standard reference on the subject.

5542 China Mià Ville
Between Equal Rights: A Marxist Theory of International Law
Aakar Books; New Delhi, India; 9789350024461; Softcover; New; 
This book critically examines existing theories of international law and makes the case for an alternative Marxist approach. China Miéveille draws on the pioneering jurisprudence of Evgeny Pashukanis linking law to commodity exchange, and in turn uses international law to make better sense of Pashukanis. Miéville argues that despite its advances, the recent 'New Stream' of radical international legal scholarship, like the mainstream it opposes, fails to make sense of the legal form itself. Drawing on Marxist theory and a critical history of international law from the sixteenth century to the present day, Miéville seeks to address that failure, and argues that international law is fundamentally constituted by the violence of imperialism.

5544 Chinnappa Gowda, Anneli Honko & Viveka Rai (Authors)
The Siri Epic as Performed by Gopala Naika, Part II (Folklore Fellows Communications 266)
Suomalainen Tiedeakatemia (Academia Scientiarum Fennica)/Bookstore Tiedekirja; Helsinki, Finland; 1998; 9514108167; Hardcover; New; New; 
Mr Gopala Naika is one of the many talented singers of oral epics in Tulunaadu, the land of Tulu speakers in southern Karnataka, India. The Finnish-Indian team, Prof. Lauri Honko and Ms Anneli Honko, M.A., from the University of Turku and Prof. Viveka Rai and Dr Chinnappa Gowda from the University of Mangalore, documented his 15,683-line performance of the Siri epic on audio and video tape in December 1990. Only five lines shorter than the Iliad, this purely oral epic, published in Tulu and English, constitutes a point of comparison for researchers interested in the making of oral epics. At the same time it is a tribute to the rich oral poetry in Tulu, a Dravidian language, and the vigorous epic traditions still to be found in many parts of India.In the brief introduction the vicissitudes of the Oral Epics Project, supported by the Academy of Finland and the Alfred Kordelin Foundation, Helsinki, are outlined. The cultural background, fieldwork on oral composition and textual problems encountered in the transcription and translation of the Siri epic and the nature of “oral text” in general are brought into focus.The primary oral textualisation and the secondary written codification of the epic are described in detail in a separate introductory volume (FFC 264), which expands to account for the complex religious and profane contexts of epic performances in Tulunaadu. Eleven earlier cases of textualisation, from Lönnrot and Radloff to Johnson and Smith, are reassessed from the methodological point of view. Several core problems of tradition research are discussed, and new concepts, such as “mental text” and “multiform”, are introduced for the analysis of oral composition. Folkloristics, comparative religion, ethnopoetics and comparative research on epics are pooled in this piece of “textual ethnography”. Printed Pages: 400. 113874

Suomalainen Tiedeakatemia (Academia Scientiarum Fennica)/Bookstore Tiedekirja; Helsinki, Finland; 1998; 9514108175; Softcover; New; 
Mr Gopala Naika is one of the many talented singers of oral epics in Tulunaadu, the land of Tulu speakers in southern Karnataka, India. The Finnish-Indian team, Prof. Lauri Honko and Ms Anneli Honko, M.A., from the University of Turku and Prof. Viveka Rai and Dr Chinnappa Gowda from the University of Mangalore, documented his 15,683-line performance of the Siri epic on audio and video tape in December 1990. Only five lines shorter than the Iliad, this purely oral epic, published in Tulu and English, constitutes a point of comparison for researchers interested in the making of oral epics. At the same time it is a tribute to the rich oral poetry in Tulu, a Dravidian language, and the vigorous epic traditions still to be found in many parts of India.In the brief introduction the vicissitudes of the Oral Epics Project, supported by the Academy of Finland and the Alfred Kordelin Foundation, Helsinki, are outlined. The cultural background, fieldwork on oral composition and textual problems encountered in the transcription and translation of the Siri epic and the nature of “oral text” in general are brought into focus.The primary oral textualisation and the secondary written codification of the epic are described in detail in a separate introductory volume (FFC 264), which expands to account for the complex religious and profane contexts of epic performances in Tulunaadu. Eleven earlier cases of textualisation, from Lönnrot and Radloff to Johnson and Smith, are reassessed from the methodological point of view. Several core problems of tradition research are discussed, and new concepts, such as “mental text” and “multiform”, are introduced for the analysis of oral composition. Folkloristics, comparative religion, ethnopoetics and comparative research on epics are pooled in this piece of “textual ethnography”. Printed Pages: 400. 113875

Classical Indian Sculpture: (300 B.C. to A.D. 500)
Bharatiya Kala Prakashan; Delhi, India; 2004; 8180900010; Hardcover; New; New; 
The purpose of this little book is to introduce classical Indian sculpture, and the examples shown have been selected chiefly because of their sculptural qualities. The book is too small to include detailed information, but the short bibliography will perhaps be useful to the reader for further study. In spite of recent excavations, the dating of the various schools cannot be regarded as final. The dates, particularly of Gandhara, Kushan, Mathura and Amaravati are controversial. Further excavation and discoveries may change the dates usually accepted for the Kushan and Gandhara periods. CONTENTS: Preface; 1. Historical Outline 2. Early Icons and Maurya Art 3. Sunga Art 4. Bharut Stupa 5. Sanchi 6. Gandhara School 7. Mathura School (Kushan) 8. Amaravati 9. Gupta Art Descriptive Notes to Plates. 110746

History and Culture of Tamil Nadu: As Gleanedfrom the Sanskrit Inscriptions, Volume 1 (Up to c. AD 1310)
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8124603804; First Edition; Softcover; New; 15 x 22 Cm 
Inscriptions are the most authentic and vital source for reconstructing the history of India. Epigraphs were composed in Sanskrit in various parts of India and the ancient Tamil country was no exception to this practice. Among the thousands of epigraphs found all over Tamil Nadu, a large number are composed in chaste Sanskrit and these as well as the Sanskrit portions of the bi-lingual copper-plate records serve as an important source of data about the conditions which existed in the ancient Tamil country. These Sanskrit inscriptions are also excellent pieces of prose and poetry and reveal the high standard which this language had attained in the ancient past in the Tamil country. This is a comprehensive and interesting work dealing with the Sanskrit inscriptions of ancient Tamil Nadu belonging to the period of the Pallavas, Pandyas and Colas and their vassals. It focuses attention on aspects of civil and military administration, social and economic life, education, literature and also the religious and cultural conditions of those ages. These inscriptions serve to highlight the cultural richness which Tamil Nadu enjoyed specially under the Pallavas, Pandyas and Colas. This book is a valuable contribution to the field of epigraphy and to the history of Tamil Nadu.Printed Pages:324. 100365

History and Culture of Tamil Nadu: As Gleaned from the Sanskrit Inscriptions, Volume 2
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2007; 8124603952; First Edition; Softcover; New; 15 x 22 Cm 
Epigraphy, or the study of inscriptions, has played a very important role in reconstructing the history of India. Tamil Nadu in particular has a very large number of epigraphs, which have been of immense help to historians in writing about the history of the Tamil country. The majority of these inscriptions are written in Tamil. However, beginning from the sixth century ad, a large number of inscriptions, both lithic and copper-plate grants came to be composed in Sanskrit as well. Some of these epigraphs are wholly in Sanskrit while some, especially the copper-plate inscriptions, are bi-lingual, with the first or prashasti portion in chaste Sanskrit and the second or operative part of the record being in Tamil. While volume I dealt, in detail, with the Sanskrit inscriptions belonging to the Pallavas, Pandyas, Colas and their feudatories up to c. 1310 ad, this book deals with the Sanskrit inscriptions of the period of the Vijayanagara, Nayaka, Later Pandya and Maratha kings who ruled over Tamil Nadu. These Sanskrit records provide interesting and valuable details regarding civil and military administration, social and economic life, education, literature and the religious and cultural conditions of those times and have been very well presented in this work. This book is an important contribution not only to the field of epigraphy, but to the history of South India in general and the history of Tamil Nadu in particular.Printed Pages: 215. 100366

Sanskrit Education and Literature in Ancient and Medieval Tamil Nadu: An Epigraphical Study
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8124607001; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Education, especially Vedic and Vedantic, along with allied subjects, was a prime focus of the rulers of the Tamil kingdoms. This book highlights the educational initiatives during the reigns of the Pallava, Pandya, Cola, Vijayanagara, Nayaka and other kings. The inscriptions across the Tamil country talk about Sanskrit education in detail. Agraharas, ghatikas, temple-colleges and mathas were the main educational institutions propagating Sanskrit texts. The teachers were handsomely paid and bhatta-vritti was the norm of the day; villages were donated to them — either as ekabhoga or as agrahara (brahmadeya). There were poets and composers among the rulers, as an embodiment of their dedication to education. The numerous grants act as authentic sources of information on the reigns of these rulers, scholars, composers and educational institutions across many centuries — beginning from the Pallava times. Giving a deep insight, this book is an invaluable source of information for students and researchers in the ancient and medieval history of India.Printed pages: 261. 100377

Lost Worlds: Indian Labour and Its Forgotten Histories
Permanent Black; New Delhi, India; 2003; 8178241692; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
This book takes the present context of globalisation and the decline of large-scale industry as its entry point into the worlds of labour in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Using a wide range of oral and archival sources as well as popular literature, Chitra Joshi reconstructs working class lives, exploring their everyday worlds at the workplace and within community life outside, as well as their moments of conflict and struggle. This book looks at the ways in which worker migrants confronted their new lives in the industrial city, struggling to retain their pasts, moving between the urban and the rural, evolving alternative family and household survival strategies.

A Dictionary of the Vedic Rituals: Based on the Srauta and Grahya Sutras
Chaukhamba Publications; New Delhi, India; 2001; Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 
This dictionary, based on the Srauta and Grhya Sutras, attempts to explain all significant terms related to the Vedic sacrificial rituals.

For the Srauta rites, this work focusses mainly on As'valayana Sutra of Aitareya Brahmana; Bandharadvaja and Apastamba Sutras of the Taittiriya Brahmana, and the Katyayana Sutra of the Satapatha Brahmana, which are code books of the Hotr, and Adhvaryu priests. For the domestic rites, The Author has used Asvalayana, Kathaka, Baudhayana, Bharadvaja, Apastamba, Hiranyakesin Paraskara, Gobila and Kausika grhyasutras. All the important implements and utensils, which were used in Vedic sacrifices, also find place in appendices.Printed Pages: 172. 100584

Drawings of Rajasthan
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 1993; 8173050090; First Edition; Hardcover; Nerw; New; 
Drawing is the representation of lines, or their modifications, upon flat surface in such a way that the curves, the depressions, the elevations the structures, in short the linear character of an object, are shown to us. It includes in its scope perspective, light and shade and values, as some of the aids whereby it attains it's end. Colour in painting gives the glow and brilliancy of nature; line its grace and grandeur. Many books on paintings have been published in India, but a few on drawings, a preliminary basic necessity in art. Drawings in India is an attempt in a series of four volumes covering major styles in Indian art; drawings of Rajasthan is the first. Because of the dearth of publications on drawings in India, this first book in the series of four will be a welcome contribution to the history of art in India and will provide good study material for students, artists and connoisseurs.Printed Pages:133. 100282

Languages of Belonging: Islam, Regional Identity, and the Making of Kashmir
Orient BlackSwan/Permanent Black; New Delhi, India; 2011; 8178243342; Softcover; New; 
Despite its centrality to the political life of India and Pakistan, Kashmir has met with rather perfunctory treatment from historians of South Asia. The few works of history and politics that have appeared on this region, moreover, insist on defining Kashmiri culture, history and identity in terms of the ahistorical concept of Kashmiriyat, or a uniquely Kashmiri cultural identity. This book, in contrast, questions the notion of any transcendent cultural uniqueness and Kashmiriyat by returning Kashmir to the mainstream of South Asian historiography. It examines the hundred-year impact of indirect colonial rule on Kashmir's class formation. It looks at the responses of Kashmir's society to social and economic restructuring. It studies the uses made of Kashmir's political elites by the state. It analyses the effect of Islamic discourse on Kashmir's political culture. It shows that while all these historical changes had a profound impact on the political culture of the Kashmir Valley, there is nothing either very inevitable or quite definite about the 'political regionalism' and 'Islamic particularism' of this area.

Buddhism as Presented by the Brahmanical Systems
Sri Satguru Publications; Delhi, India; 1992; 8170302935; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The systems of Indian philosophy represent the attempts at a logical explanation of the problem of a reality and a reasoned interpretation of spiritual experiences. Traditionally, the systems are divided into the 'Astika darsanas', i.e. the orthodox systems and the 'Nastika darsanas', i.e. the Heterodox systems-Buddhism and Jainism. This division is founded on the acceptance or rejection of the Vedas as The Source of authority, not only in the worldly but also in the spiritual matters (srutipramanya). The six orthodox systems of Indian philosophy profess an allegiance in varying degress to the authority of the Vedas and thus display a profound regard for tradition, a positive outlook towards the world, the life and its manifold activities, these are some of the features shared in common by these systems which mark them out from Buddhism. Buddhism signified right from its origin a negative attitude in different field. In the beginning it stood against the sacrificial and ritualistic practices highly prevelant in the society at large, against the distinction among men based on four social classes. In philosophy, as presented by the Brahmanical systems there was first the denial of soul, as supported by the theory of universal flux which meant denial of any enduring thing. Buddhism denied causation as a real .Process. The six orthodox systems of Indian philosophy have waged a fierce and continuous intellectual warfare with the Buddhist. The present Book contains 19 chapters, which are-Buddhism as presented by Gotama in continued on next flap the Nyayasutra and Vatsyayana in the Nyayabhasya; Buddhism as presented by Udyotakara in the Nyayavarttika; Buddhism as presented by Vacaspati Misra in the Nyayavarttikatatparyatika; Buddhism as presented by Jayanta Bhatta in the Nyayamanjari; Buddhism as presented by Sridhara in the Nyayakandali; Buddhism as presented by Sabara in the Sabarabhasya; Buddhism as presented by Kumarila in the Slokavarttika; Buddhism as presented by Prabhakara in the Brhati; Buddhism as presented by Badrayana in the Brahmasutras; Buddhism as presented by Sankara in the Br. S. Bhasya; Buddhism as presented by Patanjali in the Yogasutras; Buddhism as presented by Vyasa in the Yogabhasya; Buddhism as presented by Vacaspati in the Tattvaisaradi; Buddhism as presented in the Yuktidipika; Buddhism as presented by Kapila in the Sankhyasutras; Buddhism as presented by Aniruddha in the Sankhyasutravrtti; Buddhism as presented by Vijnanabhikshu in the Sankhyapravacanabhasya.

Situating Tribals in Indian History
B.R. Publishing Corporation; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8176466913; Hardcover; New; New; 
There is a lot of controversy over situating the tribals in modern Indian History. According to the Latin root, the word tribal meant only a section of people with a distinct and autonomous culture of its own. In the Roman Empire, they were never regarded segregated from the mainstream. But in colonial India the tribals who held fast to their autonomous culture and would not conform to colonial requirements were considered wild and outside the pale of civilization and therefore liable to be subjugated. To the imperialist anthropologist, it was a virgin field of enquiry to discover the tribals as exclusivist people with unique features. They were to be treated as vanishing community. It was again a play of divide and rule against the mainstream society. The Present volume is a bouquet of 11 essays on various aspects of Tribal Society and culture under British Rule. CONTENTS: 1. Situating Tribals in Modern Indian History/Surendra Jha 2. The Khasis and the English 1783-90/Nikhiles Guha 3. Rani Gaidiliu/S.K. Hira 4. Preserving Forests : Encroachment on the Forest Rights of the Tribals of Santhal Parganas/Samar Kumar Mallick 5. The Socio-Economic Transition of Santhals in the South West Bengal/Arati Khan 6. Santhals and Healthcare/Chittabrata Palit 7. Tribal way of Curing Diseases/Sutapa Sengupta 8. Santhal Response to Health co-Operatives in Sriniketan/Keya Banerjee 9. Indigenous Education and the Tribals of Midnapore/Subrata Kumar Mal 10. Disintegration of Traditional Santhal Elites and the Rise of Santhal Bhadralok/Pradip Chattopadhyay 11.

Social Ecology and Demographic Structure of Bhotias: Discources and Narratives
Concept Publishing Company Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2005; 8180692272; Hardcover; New; New; 
Generally it is considered that tribal communities inhabit the inhospitable, difficult and isolated areas. Unlike non-tribal communities, they have a direct and perfect symbiotic relationship with their environment. The overwhelming concentration of tribes in the hilly, rugged and peripheral areas of a country like India also proves that tribal way of life in difficult terrain and the inhospitable environment conditions have become synonymous. Their life is a saga of constant adjustment to such environment. The harsh and unpredictable environment throws ever-increasing challenges before the tribes, which they have responded to in adapting and adjusting to their environment through modification of their institutional, technological and biological attributes in a given environment. This book tries to interrogate the interrelations between the impacts of altitude and the demographic structure of the Bhotia tribal society in Kumaon Himalaya of Uttaranchal. This issue can be approached through various angles. However, the approach of social ecology is preferred over others, as it places equal emphasis on the attributes of environment and human response in an interdependent and interactive framework. The present book attempts to critically interpret the existing literature on the people adapted to high and low altitudes. Printed Pages: 240. 112429

Dzogchen Teachings
Snow Lion Publications; New York ,USA; 2006; 1559392436; First Edition; Paperback; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
This book is a rich collection of precious teachings given by the renowned Dzogchen master Chögyal Namkhai Norbu to his students around the world in order to benefit their understanding of the Dzogchen tradition and its value in the modern world. Dzogchen, or the path of Total Perfection, is the essence of Tibetan Buddhism; it is not a religion, tradition, or philosophy. As Chögyal Namkhai Norbu says, "Dzogchen is the path of self-liberation that enables one to discover one's true nature." Dzogchen is the reality of our true condition, not only the name of a teaching. Dzogchen is our own totally self-perfected state. In Dzogchen, the teacher gives you methods for discovering that true condition. Through these clear, concise explanations and instructions not available elsewhere, Namkhai Norbu makes these profound teachings accessible to everyone. All the chapters contain beneficial instructions for both beginning and advanced students, regardless of which tradition they may follow, and insights into the genuine meaning of important subjects related to Sutra Tantra and Dzogchen.

5594 Chogyal Namkhai Norbu & Adriano Clemente (Authors)
The Supreme Source: The Fundamental Tantra of Dzogchen Semde
Snow Lion/TBI; New Delhi, India; 1559391200; Softcover; New; 
The aim of Dzogchen is the reawakening of the individual to the primordial state of enlightenment, which is naturally found in all beings. The master introduces the student to his or her real nature already perfected and enlightened, but it is only by recognizing this nature and remaining in this state of recognition in all daily activities that the student becomes a real Dzogchen practitioner of the direct path of self-liberation. In this book the Dzogchen teaching is presented through the tantra Kunjed Gyalpo, or "The King Who Creates Everything"—a personification of the primordial state of enlightenment. This tantra is the fundamental scripture of the Semde, or "Nature of Mind," tradition of Dzogchen and is the most authoritative source for understanding the Dzogchen view. The commentary by Chogyal Namkhai Norbu gives easier insight into the depths of these teachings. Adriano Clemente translated the main selections of the original tantra. 112814

Dream Yoga and the Practice of Natural Light
Shambhala Publication/TBI; New Delhi, India; 1569570515; Softcover; New; 
In Dream Yoga and the Practice of Natural Light, Chögyal Namkhai Norbu gives instructions for developing clarity within the sleep and dream states. He goes beyond the practices of lucid dreaming that have been popularized in the West by presenting methods for guiding dream states that are part of a broader system for enhancing self-awareness called Dzogchen. In this tradition, the development of lucidity in the dream state is understood in the context of generating greater awareness for the ultimate purpose of attaining liberation. This revised and expanded edition includes additional material from a profound and personal Dzogchen book, which Chögyal Namkhai Norbu wrote over many years. This material deepens the first edition's emphasis on specific exercises to develop awareness within the dream and sleep states. Also included in this book is a text written by Mipham, the nineteenth-century master of Dzogchen, which offers additional insights into this extraordinary form of meditation and awareness.

5597 Chogyam Trungpa
The Sacred Path of the Warrior
Shambhala; Boston, USA; 1984; 0877732647; First Edition; Paperback; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
In this practical guide to enlightened living, Chögyam Trungpa offers an inspiring vision for our time, based on the figure of the sacred warrior. In ancient times, the warrior learned to master the challenges of life, both on and off the battlefield. He acquired a sense of personal freedom and power—not through violence or aggression, but through gentleness, courage, and self-knowledge. The Japanese samurai, the warrior-kings of Tibet, the knights of medieval Europe, and the warriors of the Native American tribes are a few examples of this universal tradition of wisdom. With this book the warrior's path is opened to contemporary men and women in search of self-mastery and greater fulfillment. Interpreting the warrior's journey in modern terms, Trungpa discusses such skills as synchronizing mind and body, overcoming habitual behaviors, relaxing within discipline, facing the world with openness and fearlessness, and finding the sacred dimension of everyday life. Above all, Trungpa shows that in discovering the basic goodness or human life, the warrior learns to radiate that goodness out into the world for the peace and sanity of others. The Shambhala teachings—named for a legendary Himalayan kingdom where prosperity and happiness reign—thus point to the potential for enlightened conduct that exists within every human being. "The basic wisdom of Shambhala," Trugpa writes, "is that in this world, as it is, we can find a good and meaningful human life that will also serve others. That is our true richness."

5598 Chogyam Trungpa
Crazy Wisdom
Shambhala; Boston, USA; 2001; 1570628947; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
Chögyam Trungpa describes "crazy wisdom" as an innocent state of mind that has the quality of early morning—fresh, sparkling, and completely awake. This fascinating book examines the life of Padmasambhava—the revered Indian teacher who brought Buddhism to Tibet—to illustrate the principle of crazy wisdom. From this profound point of view, spiritual practice does not provide comfortable answers to pain or confusion. On the contrary, painful emotions can be appreciated as a challenging opportunity for new discovery. In particular, the author discusses meditation as a practical way to uncover one's own innate wisdom. Printed Pages: 216. 037538

There is a basic human wisdom that can help solve the world’s problems. It doesn’t belong to any one culture or region or religious tradition—though it can be found in many of them throughout history. It’s what Chögyam Trungpa called the sacred path of the warrior. The sacred warrior conquers the world not through violence or aggression, but through gentleness, courage, and self-knowledge. The warrior discovers the basic goodness of human life and radiates that goodness out into the world for the peace and sanity of others.
