Description

Although some aspects of the ancient discipline of Yoga are currently familiar in the West, the real nature and purpose of' this profound science of the soul is still widely misunderstood. And in the East, where the discipline was born and reached its peak many centuries ago, much of the knowledge gained has since been lost.

Gopi Krishna, drawing upon his own experience of Higher Consciousness, has re-examined the discipline of Yoga and its psychosomatic lever -- Kundalini -- in the light of modern knowledge and presents for the first time a clear and comprehensive analysis of this amazing subject. Citing the real goal of Yoga and the most effective way to achieve it, he describes the biological and physiological aspects of the discipline, the rewards of a successful effort, and the tremendous significance true Yoga has for the continued survival and healthy evolution of the race.

The author explains that Yoga and kundalini are interchangeable terms, for there is no Yoga and no union of the individual with Cosmic Consciousness unless kundalini is activated. The whole matter boils down to this: the human brain, as the result of evolution, has now the capacity to exhibit another kind of consciousness which can know itself or, in other words become conscious of consciousness, look beyond Space and Time. What is more surprising, instead of arriving at a conclusion by reasoning, as every normal mind does, it can dive into an Ocean of Knowledge in which all that is knowable is known, and all the problems awaiting solutions are solved. From this ocean, droplets of fresh knowledge trickle down into normal consciousness, according to the degree of attunement with the brain, and it is these droplets of rare knowledge, not possible to recognize by empirical methods, which have always been honored as Revelation .

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.

Allied to ancient Gnostic cosmological concepti...
