Description

10506 Feuerstein, Georg. THE YOGA TRADITION. Its History, Literature, Philosophy, and Practice. Holm Press 1998, quarto, 686pp, illustrated throughout. This is the single greatest book on Yoga by a Westerner I have ever handled, with the exception of Eliade's Yoga. A monumental compendium that brings this ancient wonder to brilliant life and inspires you immediately upon reading a few pages to renounce our lazy spirituality and get to the real work of enlightenment. Beginning with shamanism and the roots of Yoga, Feurstein takes us to the ashrams of the greats both mythical and living, always simultaneously outlining the various schools and giving us his own perspective, built on a lifetime of study of Yoga, the oldest science in the world. Besides being a complete handbook there are unabridged translations of many of the key Yogic texts, the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, the Shiva Sutra, the Bhakit Sutra of Narada, and many others. But this is not in essence a collection of translations but a guidebook to all the various traditions. For those not familiar with the books by Feurstein, know that he writes in a serious, human, narrative prose and not in New Age la-la language or the detached academese of most books by westerners.

Churton, Tobias
Inner Traditions / Bear & Company

In November 1949, architect Frank Lloyd Wright announced the death of "the greatest man in the world," yet few knew who he was talking about.

Employing the latest research and discoveries, including previously unpublished reminiscences of the real man, Tobias Churton investigates the truth beneath th...

"As long as we lie to ourselves, the Trickster will be with us. He'll show up just when we least want him, to embarrass us on a first date, to prove us fools in front of the learned company we're trying to impress, to make us miss a power breakfast with that all-important business contact."

Grimoire of the Baron Citadel: The Book of the Four Ways. Grimoire of the Baron Citadel: The Book of the Four Ways.
Hamilton-Giles, Peter
Three Hands Press

As the governor of the Dead and the burial ground, the Baron Samedi is one of the most distinctive and potent loa of Haitian Vodou. An imposing figure in black raiment, he is most often pictured as a corpse. His other magical domains, less discussed in esoteric literature, include disruption, obscenity and -- importantly for the practicing sorcerer -- not only the arts of Magic but the very fabric of which it is made.

Emergent from the spiritual crossroads of traditional Vodou and English w...
