Description

Central Institute of Higher Tibetan Studies, Sarnath Varanasi 1990. 1000 copies only.

Afghanistan, comprising a part of Gandhara in ancient India and Eastern Iran, was once a land of Buddhism. The large number of Buddhist stupas and monasteries which one finds today scattered all over the country are reminiscent of ancient glory of Buddhism. These are now laid bare by the recent archaeological explorations by the foreign scholars.

Professor C.S. Upasak, formerly Director of the Nava Nalanda Mahavihara, Nalanda, with a substantive grant of Fellowship offered by the Indian Council of Historical Research toured various Buddhist ancient sites in different structures. The Afghanistan tour greatly inspired Professor Upasak and he made an exploratory survey of these ancient Buddhist sites. He also collected lot of evidence from Buddhist literature canonical and post-canonical to make his study wider and more realistic. Further he has made use of studies made by French and German missions. The result of author's exploratory studies "Historical of Buddhism in Afghanistan". This is perhaps the first systematic work on the history of Buddhism in Afghanistan which was once a very influential region in the Central Asia in the oast with which the ancient Tibet had very close socio-cultural interaction.

Allied to ancient Gnostic cosmological concepti...

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.

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...

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.
