You Are Not What You Think: The Egoless Path to Self-Esteem and Generous Love
Shambhala Publication/TBI; New Delhi, India; 1611802857; Softcover; New; 
A healthy ego is necessary to achieving our goals, to building healthy relationships, and to leading a satisfying and meaningful life. But an ego that gets too big—that becomes egotism—can actually inhibit all those wonderful possibilities. In this luminous guide, David Richo offers wisdom from psychology, myth, and spiritual traditions to show us how to let go of the kind of ego that causes suffering for ourselves and others. As a wonderful result, we gain self-confidence and find new ways to love too. It’s not a matter of getting rid of ego but of seeing through it. When we learn to do that, Dave says, we’ll discover the core of indestructible goodness in our enlightened nature. Then, when we see “big ego” expressed in ourselves or others, we begin to regard it with compassion rather than disdain. We are truly, Dave shows, not what we think but much, much more.

The Five Things We Cannot Change...and the Happiness We Find By Embracing Them
Shambhala Publication/TBI; New Delhi, India; 1590303083; Softcover; New; 
Why is it that despite our best efforts, many of us remain fundamentally unhappy and unfulfilled in our lives? In this provocative and inspiring book, David Richo distills thirty years of experience as a therapist to explain the underlying roots of unhappiness—and the surprising secret to finding freedom and fulfillment.There are certain facts of life that we cannot change—the unavoidable "givens" of human existence: (1) everything changes and ends, (2) things do not always go according to plan, (3) life is not always fair, (4) pain is a part of life, and (5) people are not loving and loyal all the time. Richo shows us that by dropping our deep-seated resistance to these givens, we can find liberation and discover the true richness that life has to offer. Blending Western psychology and Eastern spirituality, including practical exercises, Richo shows us how to open up to our lives—including to what is frightening, painful, or disappointing—and discover our greatest gifts.

How to Be an Adult in Relationships: The Five Keys to Mindful Loving
Shambhala Publication/TBI; New Delhi, India; 1570628122; Softcover; New; 
"Most people think of love as a feeling," says David Richo, "but love is not so much a feeling as a way of being present." In this book, Richo offers a fresh perspective on love and relationships—one that focuses not on finding an ideal mate, but on becoming a more loving and realistic person. Drawing on the Buddhist concept of mindfulness, How to Be an Adult in Relationships explores five hallmarks of mindful loving and how they play a key role in our relationships throughout life:Attention to the present moment; observing, listening, and noticing all the feelings at play in our relationships. Acceptance of ourselves and others just as we are. Appreciation of all our gifts, our limits, our longings, and our poignant human predicament. Affection shown through holding and touching in respectful ways. Allowing life and love to be just as they are, with all their ecstasy and ache, without trying to take control When deeply understood and applied, these five simple concepts—what Richo calls the five A's—form the basis of mature love. They help us to move away from judgment, fear, and blame to a position of openness, compassion, and realism about life and relationships. By giving and receiving these five A's, relationships become deeper and more meaningful, and they become a ground for personal transformation. Printed Pages: 272. 113038

Beyond Bawa
Thames & Hudson; London, UK; 2007; 0500342385; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 27 x 29 Cm Richard Powers 
Sri Lankan architect Geoffrey Bawa's forty-year career has become legendary. Beyond Bawa considers his continuing influence through the work of contemporary architects working in the region. Bawa achieved the harmonious and pleasurable fusion of local building traditions with modern forms. Throughout south Asia his legacy lives on in contemporary architectural practice and remains an important source of inspiration for generations of architects. Bawa was the principal force behind what is today known globally as ‘tropical modernism’, and examples of his ideas can be found in Sri Lanka, Singapore and Bali but also in resorts and residences throughout wider Asia. An overview of Bawa and his contribution to contemporary architecture is followed by presentations of twenty-four contemporary architects, ranging from well-known practitioners such as Australian Kerry Hill to local talents such as Anjalendran. They reveal the long-lasting significance of Bawa’s uniquely sensitive approach to building and the landscape. This is the ideal companion to Geoffrey Bawa: The Complete Works and is an excellent introduction to current architectural practice in south Asia. David Robson is the authority on Geoffrey Bawa and delivered Bawa’s eulogy at the Aga Khan Award Ceremony. He worked as an adviser on housing and settlement planning to the government of Sri Lanka between 1979 and 1983 and was involved in its acclaimed ‘Hundred Thousand Houses’ programme. Richard Powers is an internationally recognized photographer of architecture, interiors, lifestyle and gardens. He lives in Sydney. Printed Pages: 264 with 600 illustrations, 370 in colour. 021591

Of Love and War: A Chayavad Anthology
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2005; 0195675320; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
The period in modern Hindi literature known as 'Chayavad' marked the first blossoming of poetry in the language which, for its originality, depth, and technical resourcefulness, still remains unsurpassed. This anthology provides a sampling of the works of four major poets of this revival--Jayshankar Prasad, Suryakant Tripathi 'Nirala', Sumitranandan Pant, and Mahadevi Varma. Like the Romantic age in the West, Chayavad was marked with elements of symbolism and mysticism. Upa nishadic teachings, the English Romantic poets, the French Symbolists, Rabindranath Tagore, Sanskrit aesthetics--all influenced this genre. In Chayavad poetry, modern Hindi attained an incontestable brilliance and elegance of expression. Chayavad poets are known outside India by the few available translations of their elegant, yet often baffling, short lyrics. This unique volume brings together translations of a few significant long poems--Prasad's Amsu (a poem of philosophical import) and Nirala's Ram ki Shakti-Puja (a short epic on the theme of war). Also included is a selection of the more typical short lyrics by all four poets, many of them previously untranslated. Printed Pages: 144. 015714

The 10 Commitments
Jaico Publishing House; Delhi, India; 8179928365; Softcover; New; 
In the spirit of both Eastern and Western traditions, Dr. David Simon shows how changing our mindset from commandment to personal commitment can help us make the life transformations we want and need.We were raised on the Ten Commandments and unfortunately most of us use the philosophy of hou shalt not (eat too much, drink too much, work too hard, etc.) to command ourselves to change. Dr. Simon encourages us to embrace the power of commitment to create a life of greater peace, vitality, love and purpose. Through commitment to loving more openly, embracing abundance, relaxing, and being authentic, we can translate our desires into actions that bring about transformation and healing.Printed Pages: 214. 105232

The Art of Getting Well: A Five-Step Plan for Maximizing Health When You Have a Chronic Illness
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2007; 8178222884; Softcover; New; 
The Art of Getting Well is written to inspire and help people who are overcoming illness and want to improve their quality of life. Far more than just another list of recommended behaviors and attitudes, it explains how to change the very things in your life that contribute to illness and rob you of motivation in the face of chronic condition. David Spero has brought together the medical, psychological and spiritual aspects of getting well to create an empowering five step approach to self-care and recovery that inspires to seek wellness, rather than wait for it. These steps ask you to: * Slow Down-Use your energy for the things (and people) that matter most to you. * Make Changes-Build self-confidence through making progressive life changes and choices. * Get Help-Learn to find, ask for and accept the support you need. * Value your body-Treat your body with affection and respect. * Take Responsibility-Educate, accept and assert yourself to get the best care and the best health you can. The heart of this book is its passionate, powerful message of how you can overcome barries to self-care. Spero suggests ideas and techniques seldom found elsewhere, such as living with rhythm, the intelligence of the body and the role of creativity in recovery. Written in a conversational upbeat style with interviews and first person accounts of recovery, this is a unique guide to an important art we seldom think about-the art of embracing health, the art of really getting well.Printed Pages: 209. 102657

Taranatha's Life of Krsnacarya/Kanha
Paljor Publications/Library of Tibetan Works & Archives; New Delhi, India; 1989; 8185102708; Softcover; New; 
This Biography of one of the charismatic Indian, siddhas, or Tantric adepts, prominent in the tantric lineages that wereconveyed to Tibet, particularly those concerning Cakrasamvara and vajravarahi, was compiled by the renowned Tibetan historian Jonang Taranatha from both written and oral sources. He describes Krsnacarya's training with his own guru, Jaladharipa, his exploits in various parts of India, which included discovery of the Samputatilaka Tantra, and his eventual untimely death. His life, which is interesting as much for its setbacks as for its successes, is typical of the siddha tradition to which he belonged. Of the various yogic traditions which flourished in the different regions of India, Krsnacarya was largely responsible of propagating the Carya tradition in the East. Summarized accounts of Krsnacaya's main male and female disciples, as well as sundry other stories concerning the order of Caryapa Yogis, are also recounted here.Printed Pages: 191. 103577

Caste and Capitalism in Colonial India: The Nattukotai Chettiars
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1994; 8121506816; First Indian Edition; Hardbound; New; New; 16.5 Cms x 25 Cms 
Caste and Capitalism in Colonial India presents an anthropological and historical challenge to the traditional assumptions about kinship, caste, and commercial organizations in South Asia. Focusing on the Nattukotai Chettiars, a merchant-banking caste that played a central role in South Indian banking and trade in the period from 1870 to 1930, Rudner explores the nature of non-capitalist economic formations and the impact of colonial rule on indigenous commercial systems, as well as variety and change among India's caste and ethnic groups. Regardless of theoretical perspectives adopted by anthropologists and historians studying social organization in South Asia, certain assumptions have remained unchallenged: that all castes are organized either by marriage alliance or status hierarchy and that caste structures are incompatible with the "rational" conduct of business. Drawing on extensive fieldwork and archival research, Rudner argues against such monolithic characterizations. He demonstrates that in the case of the Nattukotai Chettiars, caste and commerce are inextricably linked through formal and informal alliance, institutions, and practices crucial to the formation and distribution of capital. Rudner traces the growth of these structures over the course of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, exploring the ways in which Indian merchant-bankers used indigenous social structures to profit from colonial rule. Caste and Capitalism in Colonial India is the first comprehensive analysis of the interdependence among Indian business practice, social organization, and religion. Rudner's findings have significant implications for scholars of Asian history and anthropology. Printed Pages: 369. 025362

Kache Phalu's Advice on the Art of Living
Paljor Publications/Library of Tibetan Works & Archives; New Delhi, India; 1993; 8185102643; Softcover; New; 
It was based on the three Persian classics that were then taught in Mosque schools in Tibet: Gulistan, Boston, Pantanama. But a close study indicates that the work is not an imitation of Persian classics, neither in its style nor in its content., To be sure it is not a classic written by a highly-educated lama nor by an aristocrat who are the usual authors of the "Great Tradition".Kha-che Phallu'i rNam thar belongs to the "Little Tradition", and it precisely in this that its unique position in the History of Tibetan literature resides. It is one of the very few, if not the only, written document belonging to the little tradition. It opens to social scientists an enormous vista of the folk-mind: its strength and weakness; its WISDOM and follies; its suffering and yearning; its ideals and illusions; its social ethos and illusions; in short, its way of life and world view. Never before have we had so much commonsense with so little allusion to the classical literature.Printed Pages: 53. 103627

A prolonged enquiry into the problems relating to the Historiography of Civilizations which creatively uses the concepts derived from both the Indian and the western traditions to understand man's most complex and enduring creation, that is, civilization. Silpa, Sastra, Samskara, Purusartha, Svapna, Smrti and Vasana provide a key role in this understanding and a new concept of the empirical a priori is developed to provide the theoretical underpinning for their understanding.

Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8189963066; Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
The Nature of Philosophy is a reprint of the very first book published by Daya Krishna. It is based on his doctoral work, completed in 1951 in the Department of Philosophy of Delhi University. The book is a critical examination of the presuppositions of the philosophical enterprise; it considers with admirable clarity and critical acumen diverse styles and genres of philosophical reflection: analysis, phenomenology, existentialism, and other historical modes of doing philosophy. Daya Krishna moves from one mode to another with great facility and seamless ease. Although written more than fifty years ago, the book is an impressive example of philosophical modernity. The present reprinted version consists of the original twelve chapters and has an Introduction by Mrinal Miri as well as a Bibliography and an Index. The book is an outstanding contribution in philosophy and would be beneficial to scholars of various areas of philosophy, humanities, social and the natural sciences. Printed Pages: 360. 028831

Subhas Chandra Bose: Accelerator of India's Independence
Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1997; 8121205662; Hardcover; New; New; 
Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose was a freedom fighter with a difference. He was a radical, a revolutionary and, above all, a missionary, whose only mission in life was to secure India's freedom, for which he lived and died. The Means he applied raised conventional eyebrows the were certainly unorthodox and his forthright opinions and clash of Views with Mahatma Gandhi ultimately led to his Alienation from the Congress mainstream, which found his approach a Little too militant.Unfazed, even though he was sidelined and expelled from the Congress, Bose continued his struggle from abroad, trying to harness the Military powers of that time Germany and Japan to fight against British imperialism. Single-handedly, he carried on the propaganda for India's independence across Europe and later in South-East Asia, exposing to the World the true state of affairs in his enslaved motherland. A little-conceded fact is that it was ultimately Bose and his INA who put the final pressure on the British Government to hasten the transfer of power, by sparking off the Naval Mutiny which convinced the British like nothing else could that the days of the Raj were well and truly over.This book endeavours to portray and highlight Subhas Chandra Bose in the light of this single most important contribution of his to the national freedom struggle.Printed Pages: 306. 105844

Rural Politics in India: Political Stratification and Governance in West Bengal
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2013; 1107042356; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book discusses the forms and dynamics of political processes in rural India with a special emphasis on West Bengal the nation’s fourth-most populous state. West Bengal’s political distinction stems from its long legacy of a Left-led coalition government for more than thirty years and its land reform initiatives. The book closely looks at how people from different castes religions and genders represent themselves in local governments political parties and in the social movements in West Bengal. At the same time it addresses some important questions: Is there any new pattern of politics emerging at the margins? How does this pattern of politics correspond with the current discourse of governance? Using ethnographic techniques it claims to chart new territories by not only examining how rural people see the state but also conceiving the context by comparing the available theoretical frameworks put forward to explain the political dynamics of rural India.Printed Pages: 289. 101463

Kabir Speaks
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 812460813X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Sant Kabir was a great mystic and poet of the Bhakti era in India. His dohas (couplets) reverberated the consciousness of both the Hindu and Muslim populace alike, and helped in mitigating the superstitions and hypocrisies extant in the society during the time of Sant Kabir. Through his devotion-inspiring dohas, this secular poet rejuvenated the dormant spirituality of the people of his time. This unique book, a compilation of 300 original dohas of Sant Kabãr that has been translated into English with a perfect rhyme and an erudite provision of elucidation, following each couplet, addresses the varied aspects of human life and behaviour, and poses challenges to the established belief and social systems of his time. By interpreting these rhyming dohas, which are permeated with devotion, surrender, love, good conduct and satsang, while reminding people of good social behaviour, charity, vision, control on lust, among many core aspects of life, the author makes a sincere effort to give out the message of Kabir to every reader, deciphering it in simple English. This enables the new generation to understand, grasp and imbibe social, ethical and spiritual values, and empower themselves to face many challenges that may circumvent them in their day-to-day life. The most outstanding feature of the book is that the author painstakingly tried to bring out the rhyme in translation of both the lines of each couplet. Printed Pages: 215. 100313

The concept of purnahamta (pure I-experience) symbolizing the fullness-nature of the Supreme Experient, i.e. Siva pramata different from the ego-experience ahamkara of the limited embodied beings, has been explained in this book in esoteric terms as it marks a unique contribution of Kashmir Saivism to Indian philosophical thought. The Advaita Saivas describe the nature of the Supreme Reality, one without a second, in different ways namely, as Caitanya or Samvidas an abstract metaphysical principle (nirakara tattva) as well as Parama Siva and Paramesvara possessing a form (sakara Being). They also describe the Supreme Reality as the transcendent Absolute (anuttara) and at the same time as all-pervasive Reality (visvatmaka).Printed Pages: 180. 101265

Kalidas Bhattacharyya: (The Builders of Indian Philosophy Series Gen. Ed. R. Balasubramanian)
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2003; 8121510767; First Edition; Hardbound; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
Among the academic philosophers who built up that edifice of contemporary Indian philosophy, Kalidas Bhattacharyya holds a unique position in respect of originality as well as breadth of creative thinking. Joining critical analysis and methodology with constructive insights, he introduced an in-depth comparative approach in interpreting the Indian philosophical tradition, while offering a framework of metaphysics on fresh grounds. The present author, in this study of Bhattacharyya’s subtle and wide-ranging thought from a close quarter, highlights its major strands and traces the course of its development in its different phases. The distinctive character of his philosophizing is brought into focus, while at the same time interpreting the significance and relevance of Bhattacharyya’s philosophical contribution for the present-day thinking and culture. The work combines sympathetic understanding with critical analysis in presenting Kalidas Bhattacharyya in the perspective of a total philosopher of his generation, and for generations to follow.

Theories of Illusion in Indian Philosophy
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8124608296; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Every school of Indian philosophy has prescribed its own ways to obliterate human sufferings in the best possible manner. More or less each of them has pointed out that the root cause of sufferings is false cognition of human being about the world and its objects. Only true cognition can eliminate the false one and like the destruction of a series in a chain, the sufferings will be automatically demolished at a point of time. Hence it is necessary to know the nature as well as the characteristics of false cognition. The term illusion is used to denote false cognition according to Indian philosophy. So it may or may not have similarities with the views of Western thought. Each major school of Indian philosophy has analysed the theory of illusion from its metaphysical as well as epistemological standpoint. As a result, major theories — Samkhya-Yoga, Buddhist, Nyaya, Mimamsa and Vedanta — regarding illusion (popularly known as Khyativada) and many more minor theories have originated.This volume thus extensively analyses how these schools have criticized their opponents’ standpoint to establish their own view, making it an interesting reading for everyone, be it a general reader, a student or a scholar in a simple and easy to understand format and language.

The WTO Deadlocked: Understanding the Dynamics of International Trade
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0761936068; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book analyses the contemporary state of affairs at the World Trade Organisation (WTO) and India`s negotiating agenda at its various forums. The WTO is important for all the countries as more than 96 per cent of world trade is controlled by bodies affiliated to it. This book identifies areas in the WTO agreements that require systematic reforms. It also discusses the negotiating history of GATT/WTO, especially after the conclusion of the WTO negotiations in 1995, while not overlooking the failures of the Seattle Ministerial and Doha negotiations. It delves into the rights and interests of different interest-groups within the WTO. Many WTO members nowadays believe that bilateral and regional trade agreements are the only ways to counter the problems involved with multilateral negotiations at the WTO. Concerned about this, the WTO has recently set up a committee to look into the increase in regional trade agreements and free trade areas. This book argues for multilateralism and therefore, a stronger WTO as a rule-based organisation. This is an opportune time for WTO members to examine what is at stake and reconsider their positions. In this context, the book adds considerable value and will be of immense help to Indian negotiators and the industry. It will equally interest those involved in research in the fields of Economics, Politics and Sociology. Printed Pages: 352. 028559

Wisdom Tree; New Delhi, India; 8183283713; Softcover; New; 
This book asks what seems like a silly question—can you teach a zebra some algebra? You may in turn ask—what kind of a question is that? How can one teach algebra to a zebra? However, that is exactly what the education system that we have inherited is attempting to do. Teachers go on to teach a subject with very little knowledge of the real subject—the student. Our schools remind us of the story of a sports school for animals. Here the teacher is employed to train animals to compete for the Animal Olympics. The teacher looks at a rabbit and teaches it to fly. Then he gets hold of an eagle and forces the bird to run. The elephant is asked to swim and the tortoise is advised to practice a high jump. Finally, after fifteen years of training is over, the duck is declared the Olympic champion. Why? The duck can do a little bit of hopping, flying, jumping and swimming—a jack of all trades and master of none. Think of what’s happening in our schools today. Students, like the duck in the story are asked to do a bit of everything with no deep knowledge of anything. Yet, true education is about achieving mastery—it is about perfecting ourselves as a species. Each one of us was created in our unique human shape and form. We were not mass manufactured in a factory. Our mission in life is therefore to create and to give birth to our true genius—something that we are born to do.Printed Pages: 168. 106745

The Class Act: Learn. Teach. Be.
Wisdom Tree; New Delhi, India; 818328373X; Hardcover; New; New; 
Every Chandragupta needs a Chanakya. Why? We all need our missing halves to fulfill us. The day needs the night to refresh itself through sleep. The night needs the day to awaken to the world of new possibilities. When you are immature, you want maturity to be by your side. When you are too mature, you need somebody adventurous and innocent to be with you to learn how to mature. When you have a restless Arjuna, you need the stabilising wisdom of Krishna. When you have a Krishna, you need an Arjuna to awaken and arise to act on that wisdom. So, these complementarities have to come together—like day and night; spring and winter. A teacher can bring that missing touch in the evolving life of a student.Printed Pages: 168. 106750

The Alternate Nation of Abanindranath Tagore
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8132102398; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Alternate Nation of Abanindranath Tagore provides a revisionary critique of the art of Abanindranath Tagore, the founder of a ‘national’ school of Indian painting, popularly known as the Bengal School of Art. It categorically argues that the art of Abanindranath, which developed as part of what has been called the Bengal Renaissance in the 19th–20th centuries, was not merely a normalization of nationalist or orientalist principles, but was a hermeneutic negotiation between modernity and community, geared toward the fashioning of an alternate nation, resistant to the stereotyping identity formation of the nation-state. It also establishes that his art—embedded in communitarian practices like kirtan, a-lpona-, pet-naming, syncretism and storytelling through oral allegories—sought a dialogic social identity within the inter-subjective contexts of locality, regionality, nationality and trans-nationality. This book is well-illustrated with many of Abanindranath’s creations. It will be a rich reference work for students, researchers and academics from various subject areas such as arts and humanities, sociology and cultural studies, and would be precious for artists, art collectors, connoisseurs, museums and art galleries.

Seven Quartets of Becoming: A Transformational Yoga Psychology Based on the Diaries of Sri Aurobindo
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8124606269; First Edition; Softcover; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Groomed in a modern academic tradition and post-Enlightenment ideals of creative freedom and social critique, Sri Aurobindo (1872-1950) turned his attention to yoga and the limits of consciousness in its ability to relate to and transform nature. In the process, he documented scrupulously his experiments and experiences based on a synergistic existential framework of practice. Debashish Banerji correlates the approach to yoga Sri Aurobindo took in his diaries with his later writings, to derive a description of human subjectivity and its powers. Banerji constellates Sri Aurobindo's approach with transpersonal psychology and contemporary lineages of phenomenology and ontology, to develop a transformative yoga psychology redefining the boundaries and possibilities of the human and opening up lines of self-practice towards a wholeness of being and becoming.

An Inquiry into the cases of Pain and Suffering
Concept Publishing Company Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2007; 8180694569; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book makes a philosophical analysis of the concepts of pain, suffering and evil for their nature and meaning. Drawing heavily on a vast body of positive and social sciences as well as on some branches and schools of philosophy such as Marxism, Existentialism, Buddhism, Jainism, the Vedas, the Upanisadas and the Gita, it presents an in-depth study of how these concepts are defined, and used, what they refer to, what meanings are conveyed to us by virtue of their use and reference, and how we should distinguish or evaluate these overlapping and often synonymously understood notions.
