Nel settembre 1995, Vimala Thakar decise di condividere con un gruppo di insegnanti yoga europei un’interpretazione alquanto desueta di questa Upanishad. In una cittadina dell’Himalaya questa saggia dell’era moderna ha cantato con gioia i dialoghi della Katha Upanishad rivolgendosi ai coloro nei cui cuori arde il fuoco della ricerca. Il contenuto dell’Upanishad è noto (il lungo dialogo avvenuto negli inferi tra Yama, il dio della morte, e il fanciullo Nachiketas, giunto nel regno dei morti per riscattare il padre che aveva donato in beneficenza le sue vacche più smunte e prive di latte), ma ella, con la sua interpretazione, pone l’accento sulla verità al di là di tempo e spazio.Tralasciando le implicazioni teologiche e mistiche, Vimala enfatizza l’essenza non-dualistica e olistica dell’Upanishad. Il sentiero tracciato non è unico, ma riguarda la conoscenza, la devozione e l’azione, i dialoghi presentano il sentiero universale dell’amore attraverso le parole che nascono dalla meditazione. Ella inoltre ricorda ai suoi allievi che questa Upanishad non è stata scritta per rispondere agli interrogativi della vita dopo la morte fisica, ma piuttosto per ricordarci che qui la morte riguarda quella dell’ego nello stato meditativo. Questo stato meditativo deve essere vissuto in ogni istante e durante ogni movimento della vita: è l’alchimia della vita.

Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj (1897-1981), a revered master of the Tantric Nath lineage, is an inspiring example of an ordinary family man who attained complete realization of the Infinite. Living the absolute nonduality of Being in every moment, he taught that true freedom is a possibility open to every one of us. He drew disciples from all over the world to his humble loft in the tenements of Bombay. Even on the written page, Nisargdatta’s words carry a special potency. They subtly push us beyond the ego to our original, pristine and blissful Self, to the rediscovery of Oneness and authentic liberation in our Source.

Letters from a Stoic is a timeless guide to living the good life. The moral epistles were written by Seneca at the end of his life, during his retirement, after he had worked for the Emperor Nero for fifteen years. They are addressed to Lucilius, the then procurator of Sicily, although he is known only through Seneca's writings. Whether or not Seneca and Lucilius actually corresponded, or whether in fact Seneca created the work as a form of fiction, is not clear from the historical record. This is the second volume of the Letters, Epistles LXVI-XCII.

Best known as the man who brought Zen classics to the West, Daisetz Teitaro Suzuki sheds light on all phases of a monk's experience, from being initially refused admittance at the Zendo's door to the definitive understanding the meaning of one's koan as the final act of ordinance into Zen priesthood. The Training of the Zen Buddhist Monk invites us inside the mysterious world of the Zendo, where monks live their lives in monastic simplicity. Suzuki reveals the subtle intricacies of the initiation ceremony, a monk's duty to beg among the laity, and he explains the spiritual remuneration of prayer & meditation as well as a life of service to others.Initially published in 1934, this exceptional hardcover edition contains handsome illustrations of diverse scenes from the life training of a Zen monk.DAISETZ TEITARO SUZUKI (1870-1966) was Japanese author who wrote essays and books on topics such as Buddhism, Zen, and Shin.

When Tito Melema meets Romola, the daughter of a blind scholar, he quickly makes it his goal to marry her. For her part, Romola is enchanted by Tito during their courtship, but soon after they marry, she discovers life with Tito is more difficult than she imagined. Set in fifteenth-century Florence, Romola is a delightful departure from English author George Eliot’s typical depictions of nineteenth-century English society, and is notable for being Eliot’s only work of historical fiction. Romola was Eliot’s fourth novel and turned out to be one of her least commercially successful works. Despite this, many literary critics and historians have argued that Romola was Eliot’s greatest novel.

Set in the idyllic countryside outside Athens, the Phraedrusis a dialogue between the philosopher Socrates and his friend Phaedrus, inspired by their reading of a clumsy speech by the writer Lysias on the nature of love. Their conversation develops into a wide-ranging discussion on such subjects as the pursuit of beauty, the immortality of the soul and the attainment of truth, and ends with an in-depth consideration of the principles of rhetoric. Probably a work of Plato's maturity, the Phaedrusrepresents a high point in his achievement as a writer. This volume also contains two of his letters, which discuss his involvement in politics, in particular his role as adviser to Dionysius II of Syracuse, which are crucial documents for our understanding of Plato's life and career.
