The subject of this study is a small collection of songs known as Caryagiti, 'songs of realization', or more literally 'songs of right action', referring to the edition discovered in 1907 at the Nepal Royal Library by the Bengali scholar Hari Prasad Shastri. These songs hold a unique place in India's spiritual and literary heritage, yet in many ways they have been imperfectly understood. They were spontaneously composed verses that expressed a practitioner's experience of the enlightened state and were intended to be sung. A tantric ritual may culminate in the performance of tantric dances and music that must never be disclosed to outsiders. The practitioners may also improvise "songs of realization" to express their heightened clarity and blissful enlightenment in spontaneous verse. This study clarifies many points that have hitherto remained obscure and provides a fresh and deeper insight into their structure, language and content.

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
