Description

10447 White, David Gordon. THE ALCHEMICAL BODY. Siddha Traditions in Medieval India. University of Chicago 1996, large octavo, nice cloth in attractive dust jacket, 596pp, nearly 200 pages of notes, lengthy bibliography and index, fine cond. One of the only comprehensive books in English to deal with the ancient tradition of East Indian alchemy. The Rasa Siddhas, India's medieval alchemists, developed intense and highly sophisticated methods of immortality through sexual, yogic, and laboratory practices. For nearly 800 years this tradition, now legendary and still greatly respected in parts of India, flourished, yet it is nearly unknown in the west. This is the first work in decades to approach the subject, and possibly the first ever to do so in a sincere and scholarly way. Highly praised by Georg Feurstein, the authority on Yogic philosophy.

The book s language has eluded deciphe...

Schulke, Daniel A. (ed)
Three Hands Press

Limited to 800 copies

The Arcanum of the 'fallen angel' Lucifer evokes such concepts as heresy, rebellion, pride, liberation from the bonds of demiurgic oppression, and impetus for human evolution. Meaning 'light bearer', Lucifer has, from his earliest origins, been hailed by religious and artistic countercultures as a patron saint of enlightenment -- the essential quality embodying overthrow of ignorance and the inspired process of revelation. Allied to ancient Gnostic cosmological concepti...
