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.

"The purpose of this book is to show as clearly as possible that there is an essential unity in all religions; that there is no difference in the truths inculcated by the various faiths; that there is but one method by which the world, both external and internal, has evolved; and that there is but one Goal admitted by all scriptures." -Swami Sri Yukteswar Giri The Holy Science was written by Sri Yukteswar at the behest of Mahavatar Babaji. In it, Sri Yukteswar compares Sanskrit slokas to the writings of the New Testament. Also explained is the great cycle of world ages (yugas), of which there is currently a transition.

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."

Written in 13 days in 1564 by the renowned Elizabethan magus, Dr. John Dee, the Hieroglyphic Monad explains his discovery of the monas, or unity, underlying the universe as expressed in a hieroglyph, or symbol. Dee called the Hieroglyphic Monad a magical parable based on the Doctrine of Correspondences which lies at the heart of all magical practice and is the key to the hermetic quest. Through careful meditation and study of the glyph, its secrets may be slowly revealed.
