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.

The Diamond Sutra has fascinated Buddhists for centuries because of its insights into dualism and illusion. It illuminates how our minds construct limited categories of thought. It offers us alternative ways to look at the world in its wholeness so we can encounter a deeper reality; develop reverence for the environment and more harmonious communities, families, and relationships; and act in the world skillfully and effectively. In his trademark style of making even the most esoteric teachings accessible and meaningful for our every day life, Thich Nhat Hanh writes with great humor, even about the more mundane applications of the sutra, such as the insights one may gain while peeing into the woods: “After I studied the Diamond Sutra . . . I realized that peeing is also a marvelous and wondrous reality, our gift to the universe. We only have to pee mindfully, with great respect for ourselves and whatever surroundings we are in."

Of all Vishnu's avatars, Krishna is regarded as the purna avatar, the complete incarnation, for he encapsulates in himself the entire gamut of emotions and attributes that constitute the ideal human personality. He is the most accessible of gods, and bridges the gap between the mortal and the immortal. In this book, Pavan Varma, the best-selling author of Krishna: The Playful Divine, succeeds brilliantly in communicating the exuberance, the charm and the complexity of this popular deity. Drawing upon the Puranas, classical literature, bhakti poetry and folklore, he has painted a rich and varied portrait of the blue god-as the delightfully mischievous child, the uninhibited lover, the formidable warrior, the wise and pragmatic philosopher, and the Supreme God.

Daisetz Teitaro Suzuki's The Training of the Zen Buddhist Monk invites you to step inside the mysterious world of the Zendo, where monks live their lives in simplicity. This is perhaps the best introduction to Zen and the life of the Zen monk. By means of a direct and succinct description of the training that a Zen Buddhist monk undergoes, Dr. Suzuki has given us the most precise picture possible of Zen in life. The forty-three illustrations give a unique value to the book. The artist, Zenchu Sato has depicted here the record of his own experiences in going through all the disciplinary measures pertaining to the life of Zen. As author, Dr. Suzuki said, "Zen ought to be studied not only in its theoretical aspects, as a unique product of the Oriental mind, but in its practical aspect as it is to be seen in the Zendo life. This is the chief motive for my writing this book."
