Heartbeats of Hinduism: Living the Truth of the Immortal Dharma (New)
by Samnga-Lastri, David
Publisher: Sophia Perennis
Book ID: 9781597310628, 159731062X
We have here a collection of what the author called "affirmations." I am satisfied that that they could only have emerged from direct experience, and this also is the author's claim. What is this "direct experience"? The term is widely employed in the Eastern traditions and refers to an unmediated experience of the divine reality, a vision of that reality in which the world and the meditator are transfigured, revealed for what they truly are and were all along, attained, or "received," as a gift of grace, in that higher state of consciousness, in the Hindu tradition called turiya, or "the fourth state," which is the goal of meditation. The quality of direct experience is a bliss, peace and love perceived without doubt as infinite and eternal and as the very essence of our humanity and the universe, and an ecstatic certitude of being in the presence of, and one with, absolute truth or reality: God. The permutations of this experience are inexhaustible, as the recorded words of the great sages implicitly testify and explicitly proclaim.
And the experience - a very important point - occurs in its fullness only within the framework of a revealed doctrine, a spiritual tradition. In the present case, the religion of India, Hinduism. The affirmations in this book "came to" Samnga-Lastri roughly between December 2004 and December 2005; he had been a practitioner of Hinduism for over thirty years. At first he wrote them down without thinking of them as the content of a book, but to preserve them for future reference as a means of awakening and recovering the experience they described and from which they emerged. In time, of course, it became clear to him that they could serve an analogous function for others. This book is being published in the hope that it may facilitate that goal.

Jailbreaking the Goddess: A Radical Revisioning of Feminist Spirituality
Allen, Lasara Firefox
Llewellyn Worldwide, Ltd.
"Jailbreaking the Goddess
is an important contribution to the writings on Goddess tradition and feminist spirituality. . . . I love her political savvy, her sensitivity around issues of diversity and cultural awareness and appropriation, and her unabashed celebration of pleasure, sensuality, and life!" -- Starhawk
Jailbreaking the Goddess is a revolutionary revisioning of the feminine divine. Where the maiden, mother, crone archetypal system is tied to female biology and physic...
The Sworn Book of Honorius: Liber Iuratus Honorii
Honorius of Thebes
Ibis Press / Nicolas-Hayes
As the title testifies, students were sworn to secrecy before being given access to this magic text, and only a few manuscripts have survived. Bits of its teachings, such as the use of the magic whistle for summoning spirits, are alluded to in other texts. Another key element of its ritual, the elaborate Seal of God, has been found in texts and amulets throughout Europe.
Interest in The Sworn Book of Honorius has grown in recent years, yet no modern translations have been attemptedunt...
