The Divine Reality of Sri Baba Neeb Karori Ji Maharaj. Second Edition (Neem Karoli Baba) (Used)
by Pande, Ravi Prakash
Book ID: 9788190310505, 819031050X
Sir Baba Neeb Karori Maharaj appeared to be an ordinary human, but he was actually divinity incarnate. He inspired people in unseen, intangible ways. No one could predict his behaviour. His actions revealed an all-knowing, all-pervading, and all-powerful being who had nature itself under his command. Our rational minds made it difficult to accept such power in a human being, but Baba's divine love melted away our natural scepticism and submerged us in grace. The accounts of Baba's lila, or his divine play, described in the main body of this book are devotees' personal experiences of Baba. Since he was averse to public acclaim, the accounts remained verbal during his lifetime and for some time after he left his physical body. Devotees rarely shared their experiences with people they did not know, and no one could gather the courage to keep a record of Baba's lila while they were with him. The renowned thinker and writer K.M. Munshi was impressed after meeting Baba and published an article on him, but he laced Baba's disapproval for his actions. The late Raja Bhadri, former lieutenant governor of Himachal Pradesh, made a great effort to collect many of Baba's lila, but when he sought Baba's consent to get them published, Baba not only refused bur had the entire collection destroyed in his presence.
In 1971 Baba's American devotee Ram Dass (Dr. Richard Alpert), former professor of psychology at Harvard University, was successful in narrating the powerful effect of Bahas influence on him in his book Be Here Now. In 1979, six years after Baba left his body, Ram Dass published another book entitled Miracle of Love. It was through this book that more of the western world came to know about Maharaj. Others have also written about Baba in English, bur there is a lack of literature about him in the Hindi language. Prabhu Dayal Sharma composed two beautiful poems in Hindi, Vinaya Chalisa and Pushpanjali, and after 1973 Vrindavan Ashram started publishing Smiriti Sudha, an annual magazine in which devotees write about their experiences of Baba. In preparation for writing this book, personal interviews were conducted with people from many nations, and all the literature available on Baba was researched. Every effort was made to give information about the people related to the events included except where individuals wished to remain anonymous. Enquiries were made to verify the authenticity of the accounts, and care was taken to reproduce them without exaggeration.

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 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
