The eminent German scholar-monk Ven. Nyanatiloka Mahathera (1878-1957) was the first Continental European in modern times to become a Buddhist monk and one of the foremost exponents of Theravada Buddhism in the 20th century. The four lectures contained in this 76-page booklet comprise a clear and succinct basic primer on the essence of the Buddha’s teaching, as handed down to us in the Buddhist scriptures in the Pa-li language. The author elucidates the Four Noble Truths, Kamma and Rebirth, Dependent Origination, and Mediation. The unmistakable authority which he brings to discussing the most fundamental but difficult issues in the correct understanding of the Buddha’s teaching are grounded in his practice of 54 years as an ordained monk and his wide scholarship of texts of the Theravadin tradition. This booklet is a helpful exposition for both newcomers as well as practitioners of the Dhamma.

An imposing figure in black raiment, he is most often pictured as a corpse. His other magical domains, less discussed in esoteric literature, include disruption, obscenity and -- importantly for the practicing sorcerer -- not only the arts of Magic but the very fabric of which it is made.
Emergent from the spiritual crossroads of traditional Vodou and English w...

Gnosis 19: The Trickster. A Journal of the Western Inner Traditions
"As long as we lie to ourselves, the Trickster will be with us.
He'll show up just when we least want him, to embarrass us on a
first date, to prove us fools in front of the learned company
we're trying to impress, to make us miss a power breakfast with
that all-important business contact."
- Richard Smoley, from the introduction
