"As the subtle essence of the seed of a tree remains hidden in the seed, as the salt in salt water remains unperceived by sight or touch, in the same way the Self, the subtle essence of everything, though dwelling in the body, remains hidden and unperceived." Swami Nikhilananda's translation of two of the major Upanishads - Taittiriya and Chhandogya - offers a scholarly, yet readable version of these sacred texts of ancient India. The Upanishads form the foundation of Hinduism and describe the ultimate objective of life - the liberation of the soul from the bondage of the world. Swami Nikhilananda's clear and insightful writing combined with notes and explanation will help the spiritual seeker delve into the meaning of these spiritual treasures. This fourth volume also contains introductions to the two Upanishads describing rituals and contemplative worship as steps leading to the knowledge of God. Hardcover. Pages 424
The Voynich Manuscript
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...More

The Luminous Stone: Lucifer in Western Esotericism (Western Esotericism in Context)
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...
W.W. Norton & Co. Inc.
Neil Gaiman has long been inspired by ancient mythology in creating the fantastical realms of his fiction. Now he turns his attention back to the source, presenting a bravura rendition of the great northern tales.
In Norse Mythology, Gaiman stays true to the myths in envisioning the major Norse pantheon: Odin, the highest of the high, wise, daring, and cunning; Thor, Odin's son, incredibly strong yet not the wisest of gods; and Loki--son of a giant--blood brother to Odin and a trick...
