Description

Compiled from a series of teachings given by His Holiness the Seventeenth Karmapa on February 22-26, 2007 at Tilokpur Nunnery in India, the book represents one of his first major teachings after celebrating his twenty-first birthday and reaching the age of majority. His commentary includes reflections on his role as a spiritual leader, as well as stories of his own childhood and early training.

The Thirty-Seven Practices of a Bodhisattva is one of Tibetan literature's classic texts. Written in the fourteenth century by the great teacher, Ngülchu Thogme Zangpo, it is a short but complete guide to practicing the dharma. Each verse presents a concise instruction in a fundamental mahayana practice, including meditation, choosing a teacher, taking refuge, karma, bodhichitta, tonglen, taming the mind, the six paramitas, and moral conduct. The verses are explained individually in the commentary, and the entire text is reproduced in the back of the book.

“When we talk about people who have good intentions and who aspire to be useful and helpful to other beings, we do not mean only certain kinds of people. It does not matter whether you are elderly or young, and you do not have to be famous or special. It’s not like that. It has to be everybody.”
-- From the preface by His Holiness the Seventeenth Karmapa

This volume is a special edition of Densal, the magazine of Karma Triyana Dharmachakra Monastery in Woodstock, New York, USA.

The Accidental Shaman: Journeys with Plant Teachers and Other Spirit Allies The Accidental Shaman: Journeys with Plant Teachers and Other Spirit Allies
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 Luminous Stone: Lucifer in Western Esotericism (Western Esotericism in Context) 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...

Norse Mythology Norse Mythology
Gaiman, Neil
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...

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...
