The Anti Guru: A Selection Of His Greatest Talks (New)
by Krishnamurti, U. G.
Book ID: 9781461013082, 1461013089
Usually available in 3-5 days
The Anti Guru is a selection of some of the greatest talks ever given by U.G. Krishnamurti, the famed anti-guru who refused to be a guru and shot down all attempts by his followers to deify him.
While he has no relation to the famous Jiddu Krishnamurti, who merely shares the same name, he spoke with the other Krishnamurti extensively, and you'll find much commentary U.G. made about him within this book. The first chapter is the full text of a very unique early talk given by U.G. very soon after he experienced his "calamity", the transformation that many have likened to enlightenment. The words are incredibly powerful and direct, and pierce to the heart of his philosophy. This book was published to make U.G. more accessible to the general public. His revolutionary ideas have largely been ignored by our society.
The low price of this book shows the editor’s desire to make U.G.’s material easier to access for a wider range of audiences. Unfortunately, his books are very hard to find in public library catalogs. Hopefully this will change.

Allied to ancient Gnostic cosmological concepti...
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

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...
