A Treatise on Dharma (Hardcover): Yajnavalkya A Treatise on Dharma (Hardcover)
Yajnavalkya; Edited by Patrick Olivelle
R631 Discovery Miles 6 310 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

A Treatise on Dharma, written in the fourth or fifth century, is the finest example of the genre of dharmasastra-texts on religious, civil, and criminal law and the duties of rulers-that informed Indian life for a thousand years. It illuminates major cultural innovations, such as the prominence of documents in commercial and legal proceedings, the use of ordeals in resolving disputes, and the growing importance of yoga in spiritual practices. Composed by an anonymous author during the reign of the imperial Guptas, the Treatise is ascribed to the Upanishadic philosopher Yajnavalkya, whose instruction of a group of sages serves as the frame narrative for the work. It became the most influential legal text in medieval India, and a twelfth-century interpretation came to be considered "the law of the land" under British rule. This translation of A Treatise on Dharma, based on a new critical edition and presented alongside the Sanskrit original in the Devanagari script, opens the classical age of ancient Indian law to modern readers.

2012 Reprint of 1933 Edition. Exact facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. Swami was an Indian Hindu monk. He was a key figure in the introduction of Indian philosophies of Vedanta and Yoga to the western world and was credited with raising interfaith awareness, bringing Hinduism to the status of a major world religion in the late 19th century. Bhakti yoga is a spiritual path described in Hindu philosophy which is intended to foster love, faith and surrender to God. It is a means to realize God, and is the easiest way for the common person because it doesn't involve extensive yogic practices. The Bhagavad Gita, Bhagavata Purana and Puranas are important scriptures which expound the philosophy of Bhakti. Hindu movements in which bhakti is the main practice are called bhakti movements-the major schools are Shaivism, Vaishnavism, and Shaktism. Chapters include: Chapter 1: Definition of Bhakti Chapter 2: The philosophy of Isvara Chapter 3: Spiritual realisation, the aim of Bhakti-Yoga Chapter 4: The need of Guru Chapter 5: Qualifications of the aspirant and the Teacher Chapter 6: Incarnate Teachers and Incarnation Chapter 7: The Mantra: Om: Word and Wisdom Chapter 8: Worship of substitutes and images Chapter 9: The chosen ideal Chapter 10: The method and the means

Living Ahimsa Diet: Nourishing Love & Life is the extraordinary sequel to Maya Tiwari's best-selling book Ayurveda: A Life of Balance, which has been flying off bookshelves for more than a decade. Grounded in ancient Vedic principles, it is the first "food" book that sheds light on how we can cultivate a truly harmonious life through the practice of Living Ahimsa-by eating, living, and loving in harmony with Mother Nature and her seasonal rhythms. Pulling from her remarkable life, Maya Tiwari-known fondly the world over as Mother Maya-teaches us to heal ourselves and recognize our intrinsic rhythms so we can cultivate optimum health without devoting a huge amount of time worrying about food or illness. By working with our unique metabolic constitutions, we can develop the skills to convert personal karma into awareness, challenges into success, and lessons into knowledge. Laden with wholesome seasonal practices, vegetarian and gluten-free recipes, and guidelines for the whole family to live in harmony and love, this book teaches us to embrace the feast and the fast. Within these pages you'll recover your joy in preparing, sharing, and imbibing your meals with whole-hearted ease, learn to eat and live in blissful harmony with daily, seasonal, solar, and lunar cycles, and reconnect to your true nature of love There is a time to fast and a time to feast A time for love, and a time for sobriety A time for celebration and a time for cleansing A time for nurturance and a time for austerity A time to rest, meditate, play, and work "I picked up Living Ahimsa Diet and got total body chills of recognition. This book is filled with beauty and truth that nourishes at our deepest levels. Savor it " -CHRISTIANE NORTHRUP, MD, OB/GYN physician and author of the New York Times bestsellers: Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom and The Wisdom of Menopause "Mother Maya has written an inspirational text for all. Whether you are a novice to the yogic path or a practitioner of many years, this book is a refreshing compilation of the essential principles needed for living in balance with the earth and with the Divine. Mother Maya has crafted an accessible reader comprising the time-tested truths of the Vedic principles. This book is highly recommended for charting or supplementing one's path toward total well-being in the 21st century. Supplemented with factual accounts based on scientific research, Living Ahimsa Diet: Nourishing Love & Life will be bring benefit to all seekers." -DENA MERRIAM, Founder & Convener, The Global Peace Initiative of Women "Violence, actual and virtual alike, so thoroughly pervades human society that many people find it difficult even to envision a non-belligerent world. This book is a welcome addition to the growing body of literature that maps out routes to healthier, less savage modes of living that promote kinship with all life. Offering a powerful rebuttal to the voices that condone "business as usual," Living Ahimsa Diet provides effective, practical advice to anyone who seeks a rich, peaceful, truly satisfying existence." -ROBERT SVOBODA, Ayurveda Expert and Best-selling Author

Krishna, one of the most beloved characters of the Hindu pantheon, has been portrayed in many lights: a god-child, a prankster, a model lover, a divine hero, an exemplary ruler, and the Supreme Being. In _The Complete Life of Krishna_, Vanamali, a leading Krishna expert from a long line of prominent Krishna devotees, provides the first book in English or Sanskrit to cover the complete range of the avatar's life. Drawing from the Bhagavad Purana, the Bhagavad Gita, the Mahabharata, and India's sacred oral tradition, Vanamali shares stories from Krishna's birth in a dungeon and early days as a merry trickster in Vrindavana, through his time as divine ruler at Dwaraka, to his final powerful acts as the hero Arjuna's charioteer and guru in the Kurukshetra war. She explains how Krishna became a mahayogi, the greatest of all yogis, and attained complete mastery over himself and nature. By integrating the hero-child with the mahayogi, the playful lover with the divine ruler, Vanamali shows how the stories of Krishna's life are expressed with such simplicity and humor that they enable anyone--man, woman, or child--to see the wisdom of his teachings. This complete biography of the man who was also a god provides a valuable meditative tool allowing Krishna's lessons to illuminate from within.

In the enchanted world of Braj, the primary pilgrimage center in north India for worshippers of Krishna, each stone, river, and tree is considered sacred. In Climate Change and the Art of Devotion, Sugata Ray shows how this place-centered theology emerged in the wake of the Little Ice Age (ca. 1550-1850), an epoch marked by climatic catastrophes across the globe. Using the frame of geoaesthetics, he compares early modern conceptions of the environment and current assumptions about nature and culture. A groundbreaking contribution to the emerging field of eco-art history, the book examines architecture, paintings, photography, and prints created in Braj alongside theological treatises and devotional poetry to foreground seepages between the natural ecosystem and cultural production. The paintings of deified rivers, temples that emulate fragrant groves, and talismanic bleeding rocks that Ray discusses will captivate readers interested in environmental humanities and South Asian art history.

It presents time-tested leadership strategies drawn from the Bhagavad Gi ta that are relevant for today's leaders.

The Gi ta is a non-sectarian spiritual text with a universal message for living a life of meaning, purpose, and contribution and for leading from our authentic self. It shows how to manage oneself, as a necessary prelude to leading others.

An interpretive look at the stories of Hanuman, one of the most beloved gods of the Hindu pantheon
- Contains 36 of the most important Hanuman stories with commentary on spiritual lessons, yogic practices, and Vedic astrology
- Reveals how Hanuman symbolizes the human mind and the highest potential it can achieve
- Explains how Hanuman has the ability to bestow strength and devotion
Best known for his role in the "Ramayana," Hanuman's playful nature, amazing physical powers, and selfless devotion to Lord Rama have made him one of the most beloved gods in the Hindu pantheon. As a monkey, he symbolizes the ever-restless human mind. He teaches us that, though everyone is born an animal, anyone can attain the heights of spiritual evolution through perseverance and ardent discipline. Having perfected his mind through "bhakti" (selfless devotion) to obtain his powers, Hanuman embodies the highest potential we can achieve.
In this book, Vanamali recounts 36 legendary Hanuman stories--from his birth to his adventures in the "Ramayana"--and reveals the spiritual lessons, yogic practices, and Vedic astrology aspects they contain. Vanamali shows how Hanuman has the ability to bestow selfless devotion and strength to his devotees and that following his example is the surest path to attracting the blessing of Rama.

When read superficially, the opening chapter of this text tells of a great war between opposing factions. When interpreted as an allegory the esoteric meaning portrays a drama far more significant than any transitory historical event. What is revealed: (1) the progress of the soul's awakening from self-conscious involvements with physical and psychological circumstances to realisation of its true nature as pure consciousness; (2) the challenges commonly confronted during the process; (3) liberating knowledge that removes awareness from all that is suppressive and restrictive. Roy Eugene Davis is a widely-travelled teacher of meditation and spiritual growth processes, the author of several books, and director of Centre for Spiritual awareness with offices and a retreat centre in the northeast Georgia mountains. He is a direct disciple of Paramahansa Yogananda.
