The Inner Meaning Of Traditional Festivals: Teaching Resurrected from Legends and Ritual (New)
by Hunter, Bob
Publisher: Eureka Editions
Book ID: 9789072395009, 907239500X
The adventure of discovering timeless meaning.
What purpose can be served by a book purporting to reveal liberating inner meanings in religious festivals and scriptures that supersede their literal interpretations? It may well be visualised by students of life who already feel that transforming genuine knowledge into real understanding depends on a person’s own efforts.
For them, such fresh knowledge can give an insight into intriguingly disguised spiritual prophecies and instructions. This book also endeavours to show, through the words of enlightened teachers, how ordinary individuals can practise these liberating ideas. For it indicates the possible benefits in everyday life that can arise from intensified cosmic influences during festival periods, when Eternity is said to touch Time.
Well-known Fourth Way writers -- including G.I. Gurdjieff, P.D. Ouspensky and Maurice Nicoll -- are quoted within but a central part is taken by Beryl Pogson (1895-1967), who led English groups studying this discipline, also called the Work, during the 1950s and 1960s.
Her reading of Ouspensky’s early books gave her "an emotional experience, unforgettable, of recognising something I knew to be true but had forgotten" and "I saw the adventure that lay before me of discovering the inner meaning of The New Testament".

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 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...
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
