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.

An inspired gathering of religious writings that reveals the "divine reality" common to all faiths, collected by Aldous Huxley "The Perennial Philosophy," Aldous Huxley writes, "may be found among the traditional lore of peoples in every region of the world, and in its fully developed forms it has a place in every one of the higher religions." With great wit and stunning intellect—drawing on a diverse array of faiths, including Zen Buddhism, Hinduism, Taoism, Christian mysticism, and Islam—Huxley examines the spiritual beliefs of various religious traditions and explains how they are united by a common human yearning to experience the divine. The Perennial Philosophy includes selections from Meister Eckhart, Rumi, and Lao Tzu, as well as the Bhagavad Gita, Tibetan Book of the Dead, Diamond Sutra, and Upanishads, among many others.

The publication of The Army of Flanders and the Spanish Road in 1972 marked the birth of the 'new military history', which emphasized military organization - mobilization, pay, supply, morale and, above all, logistics - rather than military 'events' such as sieges and battles. Geoffrey Parker studied one of the great logistical feats of early modern Europe: how Habsburg Spain managed to maintain and mobilize the largest army in Europe in an 80-year effort to suppress the Dutch Revolt, at 700 miles' distance. Using a unique combination of surviving records, he presented strikingly the logistical problems of fighting wars in early modern Europe, and demonstrated why Spain failed to suppress the Dutch Revolt. The book has been constantly cited since its first publication in English (with translations into Spanish and Dutch). This revised second edition includes some new sources and updates some references but otherwise remains faithful to the original version.

In this important study of the meaning of the Grail, one of Europe's greatest esoteric philosophers discloses the pre-Christian and initiatic sources of this symbolic motif that is so central to Western mythology and culture. He demonstrates how the main features of the legend are from an older tradition analogous to the great heroic sagas and cycles of the North, and that the Grail itself is a symbol of initiation. Evola uncovers the hidden meaning in the often surreal adventures of the knights who searched for the Grail, interpreting them as inner experiences and tests for the seeker. He also explores the history of the myth in the Middle Ages, its use by the Knights Templar and the Cathars, its legacy during the decline of the Holy Roman Empire, and its links with Rosicrucianism, alchemy, and Masonry. This excursion into the realm of the Grail throws new light on an endlessly fascinating subject.
