Description

Our world is in crisis, and while we can't control the home foreclosures, job losses, dwindling savings, and the other challenges now facing our society, Buddhism teaches us there is one thing we can always control: our own state of mind. How we react to the ups and downs of life makes all the difference, and Buddhism offers a wealth of wisdom and practices to help us maintain a stable, wise, and helpful state of mind no matter what happens.

This anthology of teachings by some of the tradition's most respected contemporary teachers applies Buddhist insight and wisdom to what we all experience when our society goes through difficult times. This book will teach you to:

  • remain open, joyful, and caring, even when life is stressful,
  • avoid old behaviour patterns that only make things worse,
  • access your own innate confidence and fearlessness,
  • turn difficult times into opportunities for spiritual development,
  • learn why caring for others is the best way to relieve your own suffering,
  • discover that your true nature is always awake and wise no matter what is happening.

In the Face of Fear features today's greatest Buddhist teachers and writers -- people renowned for addressing precisely the problems we're facing today. Readers of all persuasions will benefit from the practical wisdom of the Dalai Lama, Pema Chodron, Thich Nhat Hanh, Chogyam Trungpa, Jack Kornfield, and many others.

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
