Description

NY: E. P. Dutton 1940 (1939), third printing, cloth & dj, 322pp, spine and dj a tiny bit worn. Brunton 1898-1981 was a British philosopher, traveler and author. In the early 1930's he traveled to India after reading Blavatsky and eventually met Meher Baba and Ramana Maharshi, and is credited with not only bringing the attention of the west to Maharshi's teachings but helping to introduce the west to eastern wisdom teachings. Most of his books were published between 1931-1952 but they were so popular that they remained in print all the way through the 1960's and were essential texts for those seekers who left America for the hippie trail in India. Brunton has a marvelous writing style, the kind that keeps you reading way past your bedtime, and yet he was able to put into print some of the most esoteric concepts in such a way that somehow you never forget what he wrote. He did this because he knew, like an ancient Zen master, how to tell a teaching story that sounded like an adventure story. His books will never be forgotten and many are still in print in paperback. In the 1980's the Paul Brunton Foundation was formed. In 1993 Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson, an American writer who lived with Brunton as a youth and was chosen to be Brunton's spiritual heir, published a memoir attacking Brunton. The Masson story is a complicated one. Masson is a wonderful writer, with a PhD from Harvard in Sanskrit who exposed deceptions of Freud, and is the grandson of a well known Kabbalist, but somehow he missed the concept of devotion at the heart of almost all eastern spiritual philosophy. It is still an interesting memoir. Masson's recent books on the emotional life of animals are just as interesting.

Charing, Howard G
Inner Traditions / Bear & Company

After surviving a serious elevator crash in London, Howard G. Charing found he had developed healing touch as well as the ability to hear voices and experience visions--just as a healer in Italy had predicted only a week before the accident. He began using his abilities to heal but felt he needed more guidance and training. He first connected with a national spiritual healing organization, only to be told he was doing everything wrong. Then, through a friend, he discovered shamanism.

The Voynich Manuscript The Voynich Manuscript
Clemens, Raymond
Yale University Press

Many call the fifteenth-century codex, commonly known as the Voynich Manuscript, the world s most mysterious book. Written in an unknown script by an unknown author, the manuscript has no clearer purpose now than when it was rediscovered in 1912 by rare books dealer Wilfrid Voynich. The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome. 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...
