The Religion of the Samurai: A Study of Zen Philosophy and Discipline in China and Japan

Zen was uniquely suited to the Samurai of Japan. The high moral principles of Buddhism, when adopted and adapted by the Japanese warriors who became the Samurai, created an austere philosophy of singular beauty and depth. Its characteristic requirements of strict control over body and mind was exemplified by ancient warrior monks whose serene countenance, even in the face of certain death, made them much admired even by their foes.

Zen may be the most misunderstood of the world's moral philosophies. While it is often classified as a Religion, it is frequently considered by its adherents to be a utilitarian philosophy, a collection of rational moral precepts or, even more simply, as a state of being. The aim of the practice of Zen is to become Enlightened and achieve the beatitude of Nirvana.

To reach Nirvana means to achieve the state of extinction of pain and the annihilation of sin. Zen never looks for the realization of its beatitude in a place like heaven, nor believes in the realm of Reality transcendental of the phenomenal universe, nor gives countenance to the superstition of Immortality, nor does it hold the world is the best of all possible worlds, nor conceives life simply as blessing. It is in this life, full of shortcomings, misery, and sufferings, that Zen hopes to realize its beatitude. It is in this world, imperfect, changing, and moving, that Zen finds the Divine Light it worships. It is in this phenomenal universe of limitation and relativity that Zen aims to attain to highest Nirvana.

Coming To Jesus: One Man's Search for Truth and Life Purpose

Who am I? Why do I exist? What's the purpose of life? What happens when I die? Is there a God? If there's a God, who is He? Does He care about me? At age 14, Britt Gillette found himself alone in a hospital late at night struggling with the universal questions of life. You've probably asked yourself these same questions, and maybe you've found the answers. But for Britt, these were new questions, and he didn't like it at all that he didn't have the answers. So he set out on a personal quest to find the truth. Along the way, he examined the claims of every religion, philosopher, political leader, psychic, and mystic he could find, and what he discovered was nothing short of astounding. What he found changed his life forever, and maybe it can change yours too.

Decoding The QURAN (A Unique Sufi Interpretation)

In this incredible age of increasing awareness and the rise of consciousness, where the intellect is craving to find the answers to the place and purpose of one's existence, we often find ourselves at an intersection of ancient texts and modern science, falling into an array of dichotomies. Decoding the Quran is a unique interpretation, which shows the integration of the two ways, highlighting non-duality of existence, and more importantly how the human being is an integral factor of this Oneness. It employs a holistic approach to the seemingly disconnected events, laws, edicts and commands of God, integrating this miraculous knowledge, to define how and why it is a concern to humans. What is the reality of a human being? Why is mankind reminded of their reality? What does the narrations of past events mean to us in our everyday? How should we understand the metaphors of the Quran? What is awaiting us after death? The answers to these questions, along with how man should understand the One denoted by the name Allah, are the most important and prominent topics covered in the Quran... Since the Quran addresses the whole of humanity throughout all ages as guidance to the truth, this particular construal has been done in the light of the realities of today.

How to Transform Your Life: A Blissful Journey

UK Edition: A practical manual for daily life that shows how we can develop and maintain inner peace, how we can reduce and stop our experience of problems, and how we can bring about positive changes in our lives that will enable us to experience deep and lasting happiness. This is a significantly revised edition of one of Geshe Kelsang Gyatso's most popular and accessible books.

How to Transform Your Life forms the basis of hundreds of popular drop-in meditation classes and courses around the world. If you want the opportunity to study or find out more about the practices presented in this book, visit your nearest Kadampa Meditation Centre or branch.

"When things go wrong in our life and we encounter difficult situations, we tend to regard the situation itself as our problem, but in reality whatever problems we experience come from the mind. If we were to respond to difficult situations with a positive or peaceful mind they would not be problems for us; indeed, we may even come to regard them as challenges or opportunities for growth and development. Problems arise only if we respond to difficulties with a negative state of mind. Therefore, if we want to be happy all the time and to be free from problems, we must develop and maintain a peaceful mind."

Revelation Unveiled: Understanding the Heart of Jesus in the Imminent Day of the Lord

The book of Revelation should be of intense interest to today's Christian. It describes not only the persecution that originates from Satan, but also announces the day when God will intervene and cleanse the earth. This is definitely something to look forward to if we are right with him. Not so much for those living for themselves. Sadly, many commentaries on Revelation ignore the need to have a clean heart in order to survive what's coming. In this edition, we dig deep into the signs, the wonders, and the genuine Christian's role in the soon-to-be-fulfilled book of Revelation. We even go back to the prophets to help clarify what is the most important message to Christians today. About the Author Russell Stendal, a former hostage of Colombian rebels, is a lifelong missionary to that same group in the jungles of Colombia. He is an influential friend to military and government leaders in Colombia, Cuba, Mexico, Venezuela, and the United States. Russell's ministry shares the gospel via twelve radio stations, hundreds of thousands of Bibles, books, and movies distributed through airplane parachute drops and numerous speaking engagements for groups of leaders, prisoners, and individuals. Russell goes wherever the Lord leads, whether it's to speak with a president or to go deep into the jungle to help an individual in trouble. He has witnessed thousands commit their lives to Christ.

The Essence of Buddhism

This book describes the basic principles of Buddhism. Much has been written about Buddhism and how to practice it. Readers will have no difficulty finding hundreds of books on the topic. This book simply focuses on the essence of Buddhism, as expressed in the Four Noble Truths and the Eight-fold Path.

Buddhism is not a religion as such; it does not propose an external God. It does not seek to replace a person's existing religious beliefs, only to supplement them. The Buddha, in all likelihood, would rather his followers describe themselves simply as Followers of The Way.

Essence of Instruction (Upadesa Saram)

The great Tamil poet Muruganar approached the South Indian sage, Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi, and requested elucidation on the instruction which had been given by Lord Siva to the Rishis of Darukavanam (the Pine Forest). The Rishis had become hooked on action (karma) and every attainment threw up the desire for a further bigger, better attainment. They approached Siva and asked for help. Things have not changed much since then ... have they? The human condition continues to be enthralled with the shadows all the while oblivious to the all important source of the light. Sri Ramana Maharshi agreed and wrote this instruction in 30 verses. Later, the verses were translated into Telugu, Malayalam and, at the request of the great Sanskritist, Kavyakantha Ganapati Muni, they were also translated into Sanskrit. The Sanskrit work is known as Upadesa Saram (The Essence of Instruction). This is an English translation of that work with commentary by Miles Wright.

The Power Of Choice: Choose Faith Not Fear

Our choices can lead to happiness or sadness. Due to the situations, many people find themselves in; they think that the power of choice has been taken from them. They feel helpless, out of control of their own life.

There are two main choices in this world, you can choose to FEAR the future, which limits the options available to you, or you can choose to have FAITH which opens up unlimited options.

Through the media. Be it television, newspaper or The Internet we can be bombarded with fear from a morning to night, so much so that we become accustomed to it and take it as the norm. If you are looking for examples of faith then you have to search for it, seek it out.

In this book, I would like to restore some of that faith that may have been taken from you throughout the years. I will share stories of how both faith and fear are equally powerful and need to be treated as so.

FEAR can bring sickness, depression, heartache.

FAITH can bring healing, good fortune, mental clarity.

When you take responsibility that the power of choice is within you and not in the circumstances that affect your life, then with that comes an within bliss. As you stand in faith, it allows Gods love to flow into your life, creating stronger family bonds, peace of mind, healing, often off incurable diseases.

I welcome you today to make a choice of faith and learn to leave fear behind. Where you once seen a dead end, you will now see crossroads.

I leave the choice to join me up to you. Have a great day.

Daily Devotions: Walking Daily in the New Testament and Proverbs: In just minutes per day - read through the New Testament and the book of Proverbs - easy to read format - modern english

Daily Devotions: Walking Daily in the New Testament and Proverbs

Make your daily devotional reading simple and organized.

The New Testament gives you an up-close-and-personal glimpse at the life of Jesus.

The Gospels present a testimony of the miracle of His birth, the impact of His life, and the power of His death & resurrection.

The succeeding New Testament books offer a deeper reflection of Jesus Christ and the ministry we, as His followers, are called to.

The book of Proverbs is known as the "Book of Wisdom" because it provides instructions on how to live happily, successfully, and victoriously. It is jam-packed with tips, advice, and insight that if applied can change your relationships, attitudes, and life.

The Plan is Simple.

There are 89 chapters in the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. By reading one chapter of the Gospels each day, and then two chapters of the rest of the New Testament (Acts - Revelation) for a total of three chapters per day, you will go through the New Testament in just 89 Days.

This plan is called "The cell rule of Optina." The monks of the Optina Monastery enter into a daily Scripture discipline: one chapter from the Gospels and two chapters from the rest of the New Testament, reading daily in order beginning with the book of Acts and ending with the last chapter of Revelation.

By following this plan, Matthew 1 and Acts 1-2 are on the first day, and then the last gospel, John 21, is read on the very same day as Revelation 21-22.

I have added a slight twist by including a section from the book of Proverbs with each day's reading.

Daily Devotions: Walking Daily in the New Testament and Proverbs - is simple, organized, and easy to use. Start today, and you will begin to develop a good habit that will help you in your spiritual walk with Christ.

The Prophet Muhammad

People today, and the young in particular, take many individuals as role models, imitate the way they behave, speak and dress, and try to be like them. Yet, since the great majority of these people are not on the right road themselves, they lack proper morality and attitudes. A Muslim needs to try to emulate the behavior and the morality of the Prophet Muhammad (saas), who was sent to mankind as the last prophet. He was a living example of the sublime morality of Allah's last revelation. He was a friend of Allah and inspired humanity by his nearness to Him. Allah confirms that in a verse: You have an excellent model in the Messenger of Allah, for all who put their hope in Allah and the Last Day and remember Allah much. (Surat al-Ahzab: 21) Although we have never seen the Prophet (saas), we can still do our very best to come to know his exemplary behaviour, his sayings and the pleasing morality he displayed, by means of the verses of the Qur'an and the hadiths. We can try to be like him, in order to be close to him in the hereafter.The aim in writing this book is to introduce various characteristics of the Prophet Muhammad (saas), by revealing his devotion, superior morality and noble character.

200 Golden Hadiths

200 Golden Hadith is a collection of 200 short and easy to memorize Sayings of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be upon Him). Compiled in generalized format, the Hadiths are aimed at helping common readers understand Islam and attain spiritual purification.

What makes this book unique?

- Short and easy to memorize Hadiths

- Original text with easy to understand English translation.

- Diverse content- covering a range of subjects.

- Beautiful guide for positive thinking, personality development, spiritual/physical health, social well-being, and sound relationships.

- References from authentic sources.

- Stunning graphics and fabulous background

- Perfect gift for kids and youngsters

Islamic jurisprudence heavily relies on Hadiths for seeking interpretation of a given issue. Therefore, learning/spreading Hadiths has been marked as an obligation. The Prophet PBUH himself said, "Whoever comes to know one hadith of mine should spread it." However, we also need to be careful while spreading Hadiths so as not to alter any component of it, otherwise hellfire is the sure destination. By providing authentic content with simple English translation, Darussalam Publishers has actually helped general masses (with less scholarly knowledge) in learning the message of the Holy Prophet (PBUH).

How to Live in the Present Moment: The Beginner's Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment

If you are reading this now, you may have already come to the realization that striving for material gains and everything else the world calls "important" is not actually fulfilling. You probably have a yearning for something more significant. You might not know exactly what it is that you want, but I do know, because everyone on this planet is actually seeking the same thing...

Each and every one of us is seeking for inner peace and a sense of completion. We attempt to reach this by different means, but the goal is always the same. Some people strive for this sense of completion by chasing money or success. Some people use food, some people use drugs, and some people use so-called 'spirituality' in an attempt to reach this state where they can finally say "all is well now."

The problem with these means-to-an-end approaches is that they fail to take into account one simple truth, that time as we know it does not really exist. If you say, "I'm going to do this in order to reach peace of mind" then you are placing your peace of mind somewhere in the future and the future is always out of our grasp.

Peace is not achieved in the same way a material goal is achieved, by visualizing it and then taking steps to get there. Peace is not something you achieve but rather something you realize. Within you, there already exists a deep sense of peace. You don't have to strive for it, you only have to recognize it.

Let me show you step by step how to do just that.

The Daily Walk Bible NLT: 31 Days with Jesus

Most people agree that Jesus was an amazing teacher and someone we could all learn from. At the same time, most of us have spent little time actually reading his story. The Daily Walk Bible NLT: 31 Days with Jesus is an open invitation to do just that. In just one month you will read through all four gospels, seeing Jesus and gaining insight into his purpose and message for us.

This special eBook, taken from the pages of The Daily Walk Bible, includes a simple reading plan to help you through. Each day includes an Overview that provides a bird's-eye view of that day's reading, an inspirational and practical My Daily Walk devotion, and an Insight that offers an interesting fact about the passage. Every seventh day you will be invited to pause and reflect--looking back over what you have read, looking forward to what is coming, and most importantly looking up to God.

It's that simple, but be warned, Jesus has been changing lives for two thousand years--31 days and yours won't be the same either.

Life in Christ: Lessons from Our Lord's Miracles and Parables

Original title: Miracles and Parables of Our Lord.

Volume 1

A deep, inspiring, and often challenging study of the Lord Jesus Christ's miracles and parables.

Men who were led by the hand or groped their way along the wall to reach Jesus were touched by his finger and went home without a guide, rejoicing that Jesus Christ had opened their eyes. Jesus is still able to perform such miracles. And, with the power of the Holy Spirit, his Word will be expounded and we'll watch for the signs to follow, expecting to see them at once. Why shouldn't those who read this be blessed with the light of heaven? This is my heart's inmost desire.

I can't put fine words together. I've never studied speech. In fact, my heart loathes the very thought of intentionally speaking with fine words when souls are in danger of eternal separation from God. No, I work to speak straight to your hearts and consciences, and if there is anyone with faith to receive, God will bless them with fresh revelation.

- Charles H. Spurgeon

In this first volume, Charles H. Spurgeon expounds on the following miracles:

oJesus heals two blind men by touching their eyes (Matthew 9:27-30).

oJesus uses spit to heal another blind man (Mark 8:22-25).

oJesus passes through the midst of those who would kill him (Luke 4:28-30).

oJesus brings a widow's son back to life (Luke 7:11-17).

oJesus releases a woman from a spirit of infirmity (Luke 13:10-13).

oJesus heals ten lepers but only one thanks him (Luke 17:12-16).

oJesus gently rebukes his mother then makes wine for the wedding (John 2:1-5).

oJesus tests a nobleman's faith and his son is healed (John 4:46-53).

Montana Trails: A Cutter's Creek Prequel

We all have dreams. For Florence Peterson, it was to leave her teaching position in Missouri or have her life relegated to the same thing day in and day out. On a lark, she sent a letter to a school in Oregon, never dreaming they'd answer! Now all she has to do is decide if she should take the position. Because it's one thing to dream, another to have it come to life.

Alton Cutter had made the trip West more often than he'd like. Montana was fresh and new, and his brother was already there. With his wagons readied, the families in his wagon train readied too, all was well. Except for the crazy schoolmarm that had it in her head she could just "tag along."

Give a Gift That Will Change Your Life Forever.Give Yourself or Someone You Love, The Gift of Prayer...

You will not achieve fulfillment and happiness until you allow God to be the architect of your reality. Imagine that with a few moments each day, you could begin the powerful transformation toward complete control of your own life and well being through prayer.



You will be able to release all fear and doubt simply because you know that God gives you the strength. You can utilize this simple, proven technique to regain the lost comforts of joy, love, and fulfillment in your life.



God's gift of life is too short to be exhausted on thousands of everyday anxieties and fears. Sadly, the average person will get to the end of their life and realize that more than half of it was spent struggling with these kinds of problems. Because they didn't know what to do, many of these people never found any satisfaction in life. You can and will become bigger than those struggles by enhancing the positive energy that God already has flowing within you.



You are exactly who you think you are, and it's up to you to create those thoughts and manifest them as God's creation. No more lack of faith, motivation, and feelings of doubt in your life. No person can find happiness in an environment beyond his or her control. But you can get up, get out, and take control with God.



Prayer starts by creating a cycle of continuous prayers. You must believe and repeat these declarations and prayers each day. If the thoughts and ideas that we affirm are not true in reality, a dynamic tension is created between your perceived reality and your psyche. This presence of dynamic tension causes imbalance between your psyche and perceived reality. Your consciousness will work to get back in tune with the God's vision of the universe to resolve the tension. There are two simple ways to ease this tension. You must work with God's creation in order to make your declarations become true, or you must stop the prayer. As you choose to continue praying, your mind and body will seek to balance this inequality with the universe by transforming your environment to match your declarations of truth. Sooner than later, you will find yourself taking positive and decisive action that you never imagined possible as your perceptions naturally align with your true reality.



By utilizing prayer you are training your consciousness to work in tandem with God's natural flow of creative energy. This is how we are naturally designed to function as happy, healthy beings. Unfortunately, the complexity man's modern world has made it more difficult to find the natural creative harmony that God placed inside of each of us. Negative thinking goes against God's intended order of the universe and will unravel along with those who produce it. We are all meant to be bottomless vessels full of God's refreshing life and energy. Through prayer you will learn to be constantly over-filled with energy from God that soaks into the world and the people around you.



If you want to see positive change now, you'll find the quickest path to fulfillment with prayer through God's love. There is no time to spend on loss, negativity, and defeat when you can be achieving tangible, historically proven results with minimum time and effort invested.



There is no limit to changes that God can make in your life through the power of creating truth with prayer...

Buddhism#now: Big Questions. Inner Peace. LOL

Monkfish and DVD are friends. Well, sort of. DVD likes meat pies. And a pint. And girls. But he's often miserable. Quite reasonably, he needs to know why he's not happy. The problem is, the answers keep bringing up more questions. Monkfish reckons he knows a thing or two, if only DVD would let him get a word in and stop being difficult. He wants to blend modern science with the essence of Buddhism. DVD just wants a quick reply. Can the two quarrel their way to dealing with the Big Questions of life, the universe... and Buddhism (with a little help from the author and Auntie Joan)? And what exactly is 'inner peace' anyway? And can you still party? Dr. E Mapstone, author of Stop Dreaming, Start Living: "This book would appeal to those who are undaunted by a bit of slapstick comedy in the quest for a new meaning in life. The underlying message makes perfect sense!"Professor L. Todd, Newcastle University: "Dr Mellor's highly entertaining and informative introduction to Buddhism is also deeply scholarly... Certain to inspire."

Mayan Calendar Prophecies| Part 2: 2012-New Age of Disasters

Mayan prophecies predicted the return of Kukulkan, a green "sky serpent" associated with death and destruction especially floods and severe storms, between the years 1993-2012.

Coincidentally, in August 2004 a new green comet was discovered and named Comet Machholz. Since the return and discovery of Comet Machholz in August 2004 Earth has experienced some of the most severe storms, earthquakes, and tsunamis in recorded history. Some of the most severe space weather including the most powerful solar flares and gamma ray bursts in recorded history also occurred since 2004. That year also had the most naked-eye visible comets ever recorded which suggests an increase in the amount of space debris entering the solar system thereby increasing the odds of an impact with Earth. It was also in 2004 that NASA scientists discovered the asteroid Apophis was on a collision course with Earth.

Climate scientists have predicted that due to global warming these severe weather events will only get worse in the future. Space weather scientists say the sun appears to have entered a new period of increased activity. Geologists have noted there has been an increase in major earthquakes along the Pacific Plate since 2004 and they also expect more of the same in the future.

Comet Machholz was determined to have a 12,500 year orbit. The last time it visited Earth was in 10,500 BC. Scientists have noted that an unimaginable series of disasters struck Earth at that time that included severe climate change, super solar storms and massive flooding. The causes are still debated but what is clear is that these disasters resulted in the extinction of the woolly mammoths, sabre tooth tigers and other Ice Age megafauna.

Is this all a coincidence or are these events part of a natural, predictable cycle that happens every 12,500 years and just so happens to correspond with the orbit of Comet Machholz? Were the ancient Maya aware of this cycle and did they encode it in their myths about the return of Kukulkan, a green sky serpent that devours humans, as a warning and a visible sign post in the heavens to alert when the next age of disasters would begin?

Does the calendar date of December 21, 2012, mark the end of our rather quiet and peaceful epoch and the beginning of a new age of disasters similar to those that befell Earth in 10,500 BC? This book will explore the myths and legends of not only the ancient Maya but also the Greeks and Egyptians to see what these ancient civilizations were trying to tell us. We will also explore the latest scientific discoveries about the dangers that lurk in our Universe from gamma ray bursts to earth-crossing asteroids and the likelihood that Earth could be impacted by them in the near future.

The Koran (Al-Qur'an)

THE Koran admittedly occupies an important position among the great religious books of the world. Though the youngest of the epoch-making works belonging to this class of literature, it yields to hardly any in the wonderful effect which it has produced on large masses of men. It has created an all but new phase of human thought and a fresh type of character. It first transformed a number of heterogeneous desert tribes of the Arabian peninsula into a nation of heroes, and then proceeded to create the vast politico-religious organisations of the Muhammedan world which are one of the great forces with which Europe and the East have to reckon to-day.

Mystic Knowledge of the Ages, The Reawakening

This book takes you on an exploration of the most refined and profound wisdom of the ages, the mystic knowledge to which the Western world has in recent times been reawakening.What exactly is this knowledge? Mystic knowledge falls under the aegis of Aristotle's metaphysics and seeks to reveal the fundamental nature of all reality; it describes what anything must be in order to be at all. It presents a description so integral, so essentially simple, so all-inclusive that it applies to everything, whether visible or invisible, human or divine, or anything else. Religion has never really done this, even though it vociferously claims to do so.Mystic knowledge embraces three traditionally contrasted, if not completely separable, areas of ability: 1) The experience of unity or oneness with the Ultimate, commonly interpreted as God, Infinite Being, All-That-Is, etc.; 2) The extension of knowing (extrasensory perception, telepathy, precognition); and 3) The extension of doing (psychokinesis, telekinesis). These abilities utilize the primacy and power of consciousness acting beyond the field of human activity as usually recognized in the Western world."What does mysticism really mean? It means the way to attain true knowledge. It's close to philosophy, except in philosophy you go horizontally, while in mysticism you go vertically." --Friedrich NietzscheOver the centuries the pursuit of true knowledge, and the claim to possess it, has inevitably generated controversy and conflict. In modern times, advanced technologies have radically enlarged our comprehension of the universe as compelling discoveries emerged one after another from breakthroughs in physics."As a man who has devoted his whole life to the most clear-headed science, to the study of matter, I can tell you as a result of my research this much: There is no matter as such. All matter originates and exists only by virtue of the existence of consciousness. Everything that we talk about, everything that we regard as existing, postulates consciousness. The mind is the matrix of all matter." --Max Planck, Nobel Laureate, originator of Quantum Mechanics"Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real." --Niels Bohr, Nobel Laureate"Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one." --Albert Einstein, Nobel Laureate"Consciousness cannot be accounted for in physical terms, for consciousness is absolutely fundamental. Quantum physics reveals a basic oneness of the universe. Multiplicity is only apparent; in truth, there is only one mind." --Erwin Schrodinger, Nobel LaureateThese profound concepts are not new; they have been expressed in a strikingly similar manner by Eastern masters and sages throughout the millennia. What is new is the meeting of mysticism and science, with science making a late entrance. As a physicist at CERN's Large Hadron Collider told us: "It's as if we've been climbing a mountain for years, only to find, on reaching the summit, a group of mystics who for centuries have been waiting patiently for us to arrive."Transcribed from the journals detailing explorer M.G. Hawking's sixty-two months' of experiences in remote regions of Nepal and Tibet, the material presented in this book discloses his encounters and discussions with the legendary sages and masters of the Himalayas. Richly enlightening and inspirational, these accounts will stay with you long after the last words have been read. An important book for anyone seeking greatly expanded knowledge and awareness.

The Baptism in the Holy Spirit: Its Purpose and Power (Christian Discipleship Series Book 3)

Jesus commanded His disciples to be baptized in water. However, Jesus also commanded His disciples to be baptized in the Holy Spirit. This raises a very important question: if we received the Holy Spirit when we were saved, then why do we need to be baptized in the Holy Spirit after we are saved? This eBook explains the reason why every serious Christian needs to be baptized in the Holy Spirit, and also clarifies the proper use of the gift of tongues, our God-given new language.

Notes on the noteworthy Bhagavad Gita for the intelligent few

Bhagavad-gita constitutes divine instructions that are recorded in the Bhisma-parva of the Mahabharat (also known as the pancama-veda).

It is the essence of all knowledge, spoken on this planet for the guidance of mankind & is hence extremely popular.

Inspite of being the most widely read philosophical treatise, it has remained a mystery for most people & one may wonder why this is so.

This book contains notes that we hope will unravel this great mystery & enable a reader to dive deep into the esoteric message of the Gita, and practically apply its teachings in everyday life - in such a way that life can become ever fresh, meaningful and joyful.

The Prophet Moses

The history of mankind could be considered as a history of prophets. God has communicated His Divine Revelation to people by means of His messengers throughout history. These messengers told people about God and communicated to them the words of our Lord. The struggle a number of prophets faced in spreading the message is depicted in detail in the Qur'an. The stories and experiences of various prophets, besides the Prophet Muhammad (saas), such as the Prophet 'Isa, Sulayman, Yusuf, Nuh, Ibrahim, and many others (peace be upon them all), are conveyed as examples.The prophet that is most frequently employed as an example in the Qur'an is the Prophet Musa (Moses) (as). The Qur'an offers detailed accounts of his difficulties with Pharaoh, beginning in his childhood, the evil conduct of his people and his struggle in communicating the message to them. His unyielding courage under the most stringent circumstances is presented with the intention of being an example to people. In this book we will examine the life of Musa (as) as it is depicted in the Qur'an. We will explore the events he has lived through as it is described. Essentially, the events in the Prophet Musa's life should not be regarded merely as events of the ancient past, but rather as events and examples to shed light to our own lives today.

Doctrines of Demons: How to identify and avoid them

Different Doctrines of Demons are already here with us and it's sad that lots of people are already under their spell!

These evil doctrines clearly go against the good doctrines of the bible or the doctrines of salvation. You need the right knowledge and information to identify these wrong teachings in our society if you don't want to ignorantly come under their spell!

Paul wrote that these doctrines of demons and the activities of seducing spirits will take many away from the Christian faith! This exposes the main aim of the devil pushing out these doctrines to the world.

I believe this should be of interest to you and I. The truth is that all Paul wrote about what the Spirit said would be happening are all happening already! One of it is the continuous establishment of different demonic doctrines and their massive propagation.

This is the focus of this book - to expose you to some of these doctrines of devils that are already in operation today in our world.

Lots of countries and their leaders are already bowing to the pressures of these evil doctrines. If Christians don't rise to pray and carry out concerted moves, many more countries will be embracing these evil teachings.

I want you to understand that the devil and his cohorts are always very crafty with these evil doctrines and covenants. They try to present them to you as if they are Godly. You'll need patience, the help of the Holy Spirit, a diligent search into

God's Word and of course, this book to read between the lines.

I want you to download this book and check out these demonic doctrines that are seriously fighting against the good doctrines of salvation and the doctrines of the bible.

The United States and Britain in Bible Prophecy

The publisher offers this ebook for free at ucg.org/booklet/united-states-and-britain-bible-prophecy

What's ahead for the United States and Britain?

Is the world's most powerful nation--the United States of America--overlooked in Bible prophecy? Why are relatively small powers like Egypt, Syria and Lebanon mentioned, but no nation recognizable as the United States can be found? What about other major English-speaking nations such as the United Kingdom, Canada and Australia?

In fact, many prophecies do mention these nations. But, without a proper understanding of history and the Scriptures, few can identify these countries and understand what lies ahead for them.

The Bible study aid booklet, The United States and Britain in Bible Prophecy, takes you on a remarkable journey through history and Bible prophecy to reveal an incredible story with sobering implications for the major English-speaking nations. You can't afford to be without this priceless information.

Inside this Bible Study Aid ebook:

"Why has history been so benevolent and economically generous to Britain and the United States? Why have they been blessed so favorably over the nations that preceded them in history? The answer lies in the understanding and fulfillment of biblical prophecy."

"God's promise to Abraham was not limited to a small and ancient people in the Middle East. It extends far into the future, and it is not limited by national boundaries."

"Where can we find the descendants of Joseph, the lost tribes of Ephraim and Manasseh? This list of blessings eliminates most of the nations of the world as contenders. To find them we must ask: Which nations possess these blessings in our world?"

"When we understand that the modern descendants of Joseph are the people of the United States and Britain, we see that over the past three centuries God has been true to His promises."

"Though the United States and Britain do not appear in the Bible's prophecies of the end time under their present names, God hasn't ignored these nations. He identifies them in prophecy according to their ancestry. Most people simply haven't known where to look for them."

Sample Writing :: Testimony of Withered Hand Healed

While Dawn and I were in Winston-Salem, North Carolina we decided to go to the C. Winkler Bakery for some food. Sitting outside of the bakery, a man and his wife in their fifties were highlighted. From a long distance away, my eyes zeroed in on a wrist brace the man was wearing. I knew God was going to do something.

I approached the couple sitting on the bench and said, "It looks like you hurt your wrist."

The man replied, "Well, I didn't really hurt it, I have carpal tunnel syndrome. I had surgery on it two years ago."

I replied, "After two years you still have to wear the brace?"

"Yes, the doctors say it's going to be for the rest of my life. I hardly have any strength in my hand. I can only lift 20-pounds with it." He then demonstrated that he was unable to open his hand. In fact, it was basically a withered hand. The tendons in his hand were super tight and he was by no means able to open it.

"Hey, do you mind if I pray for your hand to open up?" I asked. "We see radical healing miracles all the time."

"Oh, I guess I don't mind."

"Then in the name of Jesus Christ, stretch out your hand." Nothing seemed to happen. "In the name of Jesus, I command this hand to open." I didn't notice any change.

Then his wife said, "Look, it opened wider."

I began to thank the Lord for what He was doing. I continued to speak healing. After about five minutes, both him and his wife had open mouths as they looked at his hand. God had touched it radically and it was about 95% healed. This was a radical miracle that happened before our very eyes.

Technology’s Toxic Time Bomb Ticking for Addicted Users: Donald Trump Tech Addicted to Twitter, TV

Technology's Toxic Time Bomb Ticking for Addicted Users, by Dave Masko. Just as addiction to alcohol and drugs means the addict has compromised morals so too is the demoralization of information technology overuse, say mental health professionals trying to figure out why fully wired teens in America either commit suicide or take the lives of others. Big Data overuse by teens and other tech addicts "takes one further down the dark and evil path of addiction; while most computer and smartphone users freely admit they are seriously addicted to 'screens,' and how horrible is that?" explains retired nurse Pam Weiser who now helps tech addicts at one of the growing number of information technology rehab treatment centers here in Oregon. This special "new journalism" e-book report features essays where young and old share their deeply entrenched problems with highly addictive information technology. "Tech fans are now trusting their own thinking over the computer, and now believing in their own 'human' power over these machines that want to control and literally own us," explained retired computer science Professor J. Thompson Green during a recent "Big Data Warning" lecture at Reed College here in southeast Portland, Oregon, where Steve Jobs went to school in the early 1970s as a freshman studying humanities at Reed. Professor Thompson thinks "if each one of us could fully understand that we are wired as human beings to be both free and independent from the machines we create. We humans are interdependent as well, and that means we are responsible for each other when it comes to fighting this toxic technology addiction that is turning our best and brightest into these post-human beings without any depth of human emotions or feeling; while emotions are everything to a human and nothing to the rising artificial intelligence (AI) beast that has us literally by the balls and won't let go!" The professor believes "if we control our tech addiction it would save the world." Meanwhile, the New York Times recently spotlighted Donald Trump's serious addiction to Twitter and television as described by former White House chief of staff Reince Priebus in his soon-to-be-released tell-all about this odious 71-year-old racist president being seriously hooked into technology to where Trump never questions the machine. The Feb. 15, 2018 New York Times story shares early experts from the Priebus book whereby his chief of staff and other aides (*including Trump's daughter Ivanka, son-in-law Jared Kushner and former wedding planner Hope Hicks) to try and convince this crazy old Trump that his "often incendiary Twitter messages were self-destructive." Priebus writes in his new book: "I told him, 'some of it's not helpful, it causes distraction. We can get thrown off our message by tweeting things that aren't the issues of the day. Everybody tried at different times to cool down the Twitter habit; but no one could do it. Not me, Jared, Ivanka, Hope," added Priebus who was fired by Trump in April 2017 for bugging him about his addictive Twitter, TV and screen habits that have become so habitual that this dystopian president is seriously addicted to technology. Meanwhile, Trump took to television Feb. 15, 2018 to condemn the killing of 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., where expelled 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz has been charged with committing this atrocity after being booked on 17 counts of "murder premeditated." While Trump seemed as helpless as family, school or police when calling for healing and peace the day after a teenage gunman killed at least 17 people, those who know and fear teen technology addiction played a role in this horrible act say "the president of anyone else in our society will call out the Internet for the role IT plays in teen violence today." Police and students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School describe Cruz as a "techie" and someone "who spent a lot of time online."

If I Should Die Before I Wake

It is of the LORD's mercies that we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning, great is Thy faithfulness. Lamentations 3:22-23

God's mercies are sure; His promises are fulfilled; but a dawn of a new morning is God' grace.

If you need a testimony about God's grace, then If I Should Die Before I Wake will encourage your soul. Nothing happens in our lives by chance. If you need a miracle, God's got that too. Trust Him.

Has it been a while since you've had a testimony? Increase your prayer life, build your faith and walk in victory because without a test, there is no testimony.

Essence of the Bhagavad Gita

A prose translation of 42 verses from Bhagavad Gita, selected and set in order, by Ramana Maharshi, for use of those interested in Self Enquiry. In these verses Bhagavan reveals the seeker, that which is sought and the means by which one seeks.

The Day of Judgment

Discusses the day when we shall be judged by Allah with regards to our deeds, both good and bad; this book seeks to remind people that they should use the opportunity they have in this life to earn the good pleasure of Allah, before it's too late, and for us to be grateful to the blessings our Lord has given us.

The Bhagavad Gita (Easwaran's Classics of Indian Spirituality)

Easwaran's best-selling translation of the Bhagavad Gita is reliable, readable, and profound. His 55-page introduction places the Gita in its historical context, presents key concepts, and brings out the universality and timelessness of its teachings. This edition includes chapter introductions, notes and a Sanskrit glossary.

Easwaran grew up in the Hindu tradition in India, learned Sanskrit from a young age, and became a professor of English literature before coming to the West. He is a gifted teacher and an authority on the Indian classics and world mysticism.

The Gita opens, dramatically, on a battlefield, as the warrior Arjuna turns in anguish to his spiritual guide, Sri Krishna, for answers to the fundamental questions of life. Yet the Gita is not what it seems - it's not a dialogue between two mythical figures at the dawn of Indian history. "The battlefield is a perfect backdrop, but the Gita's subject is the war within, the struggle for self-mastery that every human being must wage if he or she is to emerge from life victorious."

An Easy-To-Understand Commentary Of The New Testament

As many already know, the Bible is our source of spiritual nourishment to help us grow as Christians. However, it seems that many of us are guilty of not reading it. Instead, we rely on our preachers and Sunday School teachers to do it for us. The sad thing is that, in a world of false teaching (which is warned about in the Bible), we may be receiving some false information and accepting it as truth. Did you know?: 88% of American households have a copy of the Bible. 37% of Americans actually read it. In a world where morals are declining, the solutions to much of it's problems can be solved by simply reading and applying the Bible to our everyday lives. So, why aren't more people reading the Bible? Based on our research, we (as Americans) are either too busy, too lazy or we just don't understand it. Our goal is to help put the 'fire' back into Bible studies - whether as a group or personal studies. Author Jeff Todd has done a personal study of the complete New Testament and written down the messages he's received from each of the books. His commentaries are explained in simple terms so that everyone - regardless of education - can receive something spiritually from them. He also offers a bit of humor to keep it interesting. Open up your dusty Bible today and join us as we learn more from God's Word. We hope you are blessed by reading it.

The Zen Wheel of Life Mantra: A Song of Luminous Wisdom and Love

Zen Priest and Poet Tai Sheridan's Wheel of Life Mantra is a poetic expression of the Bhavacakra, an ancient mandala that presents the most significant wisdom teachings of Buddhism. It is used to contemplate the causes and conditions of suffering, and as a guide to non-dual wisdom, loving kindness, compassion, and equanimity. The Wheel is constructed of four concentric circles around a hub, each circle representing different areas of human experience and awareness. Beginning with the innermost circle and moving outward they represent dimensions of anguish, consequences, psychological experience, and the workings of consciousness. The wheel itself is an expression of the essential Buddhist teachings of no-self (nothing exists as a separate entity), impermanence (everything changes), and co-dependent origination (all phenomena arise simultaneously in reality in the present moment). The Wheel, like all Buddhist teachings, is an encouragement for finding the way to peace, love, and light.

Stories of the Prophets

In this book, the Stories of the Prophets have been compiled from 'Al-Bidayah wan-Nihayah' (The Beginning and the End) which is a great work of the famous Muslim exegete and historian Ibn Kathir and has a prominent place in the Islamic literature. The Stories of the Prophets and all the events in their lives have been supported by Quranic Verses and the traditions of the Prophet (SAW). Wherever it was necessary, other sources have also been reported for the sake of historical accounts, but on such places a comparative study has been made to prove the authenticity of the sources. Ibn Kathir has reproduced the views and interpretations of all the great exegetes of the Quran of his time. The systematic narratives of the Stories of the Prophets have been written in chronological order which renders a historical style to the book. TRANSLATED BY: Muhammad Mustapha Geme'ah, Al-Azhar

English Translation of the Qur'an

Between these two covers you will find the answer to those questions which touch the very depths of your soul.

Why am I here? Where am I heading? How does one achieve happiness? Can one really find inner-peace? How can the "God" issue be resolved? Is blind faith and the curbing of logic the only road to spiritual nourishment?

The answers given are plain and simple. All that is required to benefit is truthfulness with oneself, and unbiased approach, and a sincere quest for guidance. With that, immediately you will see why so many are naturally compelled to accept this message. We invite you to contemplate the matter for yourself...

King Uzziah: A Study of An Arrogant and Unrepentant King: What We Must Learn From the King Who Lost It All (Transformational Bible Studies)

For most of his life, King Uzziah lived an admirable life shining with dedication to God. Shockingly, toward the end of his life he became rebellious and defiant, thus inviting upon himself God's great wrath. In spite of his great punishment, Uzziah remained unrepentant and did not seek God's mercy, which may have made him guilty of the unpardonable sin. This Bible study analyzes Uzziah's great fall in detail and attempts to glean from it critical lessons all believers must never forget, so as to never follow Uzziah's tragic example, and thus inherit eternal life.

Daniel's 70 Weeks: The Keystone of Bible Prophecy (Prophecies & Patterns Book 2)

Did the Bible really predict the coming of the Messiah before it happened? To answer that question William Struse takes you on a Biblical adventure in search of the promised Messiah. Of all the prophetic texts in the Bible, and by some counts there are over 2000, there is only one prophecy which gives a specific datable timeline for the coming of the Messiah. That prophecy found in the 9th chapter of the book of Daniel is commonly called Daniel's 70 Weeks.

Did you know?

1.The prophecy of 70 Weeks gives the date for the birth the Messiah.

2.The prophecy also tells of the Messiah's death and his resurrection.

3.The prophecy warns of the destruction of Jerusalem and its desolation.

4.The prophecy confirms the "covenant and mercy" promised to Abraham and his descendants, the Jewish people.

In a world where some question the Jewish people's ancestral rights to the land of Israel, the prophecy of 70 Weeks proves mathematically that indeed YHWH's oath which he swore with Abraham and his "seed" is in fact true, literal, and eternal.

Did you know?

1.That the "covenant and mercy" mentioned in Daniel 9:4 refers to the oath YHWH swore with Abraham and his "seed" in Genesis 22.

2.That the word swore in Genesis 22 comes from the Hebrew shaba and is the very root for the Hebrew word shabuwa (weeks) as in Daniel's 70 Weeks (Shabuwa).

3.That this covenant made with Abraham is the first recorded covenant YHWH swore (shaba) with any man in the Bible.

4.That this oath of sevens is an underlying covenantal theme of the entire Biblical record.

As you explore the Biblical record in this book, you'll see why the prophecy of 70 Weeks is the keystone between the Old and New Testaments (Covenants). Quite literally, this prophecy bridges the Old Testament Torah and Prophets, which speak of a coming Messiah, with the New Testament Apostles who record the fulfillment of those very prophecies in the person of a first century Jewish man named Yeshua.

So if you've ever wondered whether the Bible's prophecies which speak of a coming Messiah are true, by the time you have finished Daniel's 70 Weeks: The Keystone of Bible Prophecy you'll have an answer to that question and you will know why the Bible is truly different than any other religious text recorded by man.

Manifestations: Life After Death - For like-minds who wonder, why they're here and where they go after they die...

The Narrator

It begins with its narrator who is clearly a higher power: God, Allah, JA, Yahweh, Jehovah, The Great Spirit, Amen, etc.

The narrator does not dwell on that; for clearly, as you will read, it is beneath it to mention; for the logic of the narrator cuts through the concept of true religion and traditional worship.

Once the deity establishes itself, you will find yourself giving it leeway to discover what new scientific or spiritual information it has to offer.

The narrator does not let down.

Personal Transformation

After whisking you through creation, the narrator gives us a glimpse at the Earthly Realm, human history, knowledge of self, and the ever changing of self.

The way the narrator weaves these ideas together and still addresses reincarnation, science and religion, without offending them is what separates this text from the ancient scriptures.

The narrator is intelligent, quick witted, and detailed. Moreover, the deity articulates the present life only as a precursor to our life after life. As the text suggests, life then truly begins.

Near Death Experience

To start the transformation, the narrator allows you to experience death and enter the first of seven realms of the afterlife. This is where, as a reader, you expect a complicated, sketchy explanation.

The narrator makes it simple. The Astral Realm is the first realm that is introduced. As an astral being, the narrator introduces the new challenges that await you.

Similar to how the narrator explained the Earthly Realm; the Astral Realm is explained in just as much detail, yet, simple, so the common person can understand it.

The narrator then takes us to The Realm of Contemplation. It is here that all thoughts lie dormant. Just like the previous two realms, the narrator walks you through the realm while teaching.

This is continued until the seventh level is visited and explained.

Heaven and Hell

This work is a work of eschatology. Where one may read about heaven and hell in the Bible, Qu'ran or Ramayana, the concept of Heaven and Hell are not mentioned in Manifestations.

Could it be that they do not exist? Or perhaps we may need to change our concept of it. The text agrees with Kemetic Science as it supports life after death. According do Manifestations, even in the afterlife, good souls can suffer, if they do not strive to be masters.

Is the Holy Spirit Real?: Reconnecting With the Work of the Holy Spirit in the Bible and In Our Lives

Jesus has four Gospels about His life, and God the Father's work is on nearly every page, so why is it that we forget so much about the third Member of the Trinity: the Holy Spirit? Is it the fact that He seems to be everywhere and nowhere at the same time? Is it because He is so personal in nature that a generalized description is virtually impossible? Regardless, it's about time that we finally focus on who He is, what He's done, and how He contributed to our common salvation.

Vachanamrut

The Vachanamrut of Bhagwan Swaminarayan is the most sacred and foundational scripture of the Swaminarayan Sampraday. It contains the profound wisdom of the Vedas, Upanishads, Brahmasutras, Bhagvad Gita, Bhagvat Purana, Dharma shastras like Yagnavalkya Smruti, Vidurniti, and epics like the Ramayan and Mahabharat (Vachanamrut Gadhadha II-28). Bhagwan Swaminarayan says in Gadhadha II-28, "What is this discourse which I have delivered before you like? Well, I have delivered it having heard and having extracted the essence from the Vedas, the shastras, the Purans and all other words on this earth pertaining to liberation."

The Vachanamrut is the essence of ancient Indian wisdom as told by Bhagwan Swaminarayan and compiled by his five contemporary scholarly-sadhus who were known for their asceticism and scholarship in Sanskrit, besides their devotion to him. In fact every statement of the Master is packed with and based on His in-depth religious knowledge, spiritual insights and practical experience. It contains practical and philosophical answers to the sincere enquiries of all types of aspirants regarding life in this world and the life hereafter.

The Vachanamrut is not only a sacred shastra in the Swaminarayan faith, but a shastra of every day study. All the literate followers read it daily and the illiterate listen to at least a page everyday. It is read and elaborated upon daily in the Swaminarayan mandirs the world over. It is a landmark shastra, philosophically and in all other aspects. It is the first modern Gujarati prose work which the noted Gujarati critic and poet, Shri Uma Shankar Joshi, acclaimed as the very pinnacle of Gujarati prose. The Vachanamrut, a compilation of 273 spiritual discourses, is divided into 10 sections. The discourses were delivered by Bhagwan Swaminarayan in the last decade of his life, between 1819 and 1829 CE in Gujarati. They were mostly delivered in ashram-like ambience in secluded places like Gadhada, Sarangpur, Kariyani, Loya, Panchala, Vadtal, Aslali, and Jetalpur.

The book records the dialogues and conversation between the master and his disciples, answering philosophical and religious questions, explaining doctrines, and formulating terminology concerning both theoretical and practical points of view in daily life and spiritual sadhna.

Vachanamrut is a compound word of two Gujarati words, vachan and amrut. Vachan means words or speech and amrut means nectar. Hence the Vachanamrut comprises the nectarine or divine words of Bhagwan Swaminarayan. The Vachanamrut is the amrut (divine nectar) of Bhagwan Swaminarayan in the form of His divine words. This amrut leads the jivas to moksha.

The discourses were transcribed not by a 1 editor but by five contemporary scholarly-sadhus while they were being delivered. These editors were:

Muktanand Swami, the senior most sadhu of Ramanand Swami, 23 years senior to Bhagwan Swaminarayan. He was the teacher of Bhagwan Swaminarayan when he first arrived in Gujarat. Muktanand Swami is the author of Brahmasutra Bhashya Ratnam, a commentary on the Vedanta Sutra of Badrayana Vyas.

Gopalanand Swami, who had mastered ashtang yoga, wrote a commentary on the Dashopanishad and Bhagvad Gita.

Nityanand Swami, a profound Sanskrit scholar, authored the Hari Digvijay Kavya in Sanskrit.

Shukanand Swami, was a well-known Sanskrit scholar from Dabhan and the personal secretary of the Master.

Brahmanand Swami a Jocular Born Poet, by the instructions of Lord Swaminarayan Brahmanand Swami erected three magnificent temples in Muli, Vadtal, Junagadh also as an eminent poet he composed about 9000 devotional songs, which are popular as Brahmanand Kavya.

In one of the Vachanamruts, one of the editors, namely, Nityanand Swami, presents 114 edited discourses to Bhagwan Swaminarayan for his approval. He was pleased with the efforts of the editors and authenticated their compilation.

HCSB: Navigating the Horizons in Bible Translations

In Genesis 3:1 the serpent asked the woman, "Did God really say, 'You can't eat from any tree in the garden'?" What has God really said? Before we can obey Him, we must know what He has said. The Psalmist prayed twice in his affliction, "Give me life through Your word" (Ps 119:25, 107). When Jesus was afflicted by the Devil in the wilderness (Mt 4:1-11), He defended Himself with the sword of the Spirit (Eph 6:17) - God's Word. But Christians must know what God has said if we are to find strength and healing from affliction and defense against the Devil. Bible translation is not a casual enterprise because it involves bringing the life-saving Word of God to people in their own language. And selecting a Bible translation is not on the order of picking out a sweater. It's more like picking a doctor - someone you can trust. This book is about how Bible translation is done. And it commends a particular translation - the Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB) - as a trustworthy guide to what God has really said.

Call Of The Wolf: The Viking Chronicles book 1: Volume 1

"The air was filled with the groans of men whose thoughts were not of war but of home. In the final moment no one cared if lands and kings were victorious. The glimmer of a smiling child, the soft touch of a wife, the laughter heard around the hearth, and sounds of love were all that mattered. Steadily the light dimmed and the crushing sounds of war disappeared, until only darkness and silence remained." Vikings honored home and the land, community and friends above all else. Magnus, son of Vargr, wanted to see the world more than anything, but his dream collided with the ruthless spread of Charlemagne's kingdom. Two lives destined to change the course of history; the fate of families for generations to come.

The Power Of Faith Can Move Mountains: Attain health happiness and love.

o Improve your health and well-being.

o Remove the problems from your life

o Increase the power of your faith

In life, day-to-day problems come to us all, but if our faith is weak, even small problems can quickly grow to appear bigger than they really are.

Doubt and worry are the most destructive forms of fear; they can cloud our vision blinding us from the truth.

A mountain of doubt can cripple your life. Like a rabbit in headlights, you close your eyes and freeze, hoping the problem will go away when you have opened them.

When it remains, you can be left dazed and confused not knowing what way to turn. All rational thought goes out the window. In a panic to get things back to the way they were; you can make all the wrong decisions

No one likes change, but it is much easier when you come from a place of strength; when it originates from a place of faith and not fear.

Faith is like a muscle; like any muscle, it needs to be consistently exercised to have maximum power. When all is going smoothly, our faith can be easily neglected, although this is the time that we must use to maintain its strength.

If you were asked to run a marathon tomorrow, unless you had put in the training, you might not even reach the half way point. How then can you expect to have the faith to remove the problems from your life if you do not first develop a level of faith that can do so?

Faith is something that needs constant attention or thoughts of doubt will set in.

In this book, I will share with you methods to increase your faith, and keep it at its highest level; so you are prepared for any problem or difficulty that may arise.

When you nurture your faith, you will begin to see your life change in unusual ways. Things that once held you back will soon fade away.

A simple change of perspective can make a mountain become level ground.

Change your life today; increase the power within.

Roanoke: The Lost Colony: Volume 1 (The Keepers of the Ring)

In 1587, a group of colonists set sail from England, bound for Virginia, to establish the first English colony in the New World. They never made it to Virginia, but settled on Roanoke Island. John White, the colony's founder, sailed away, promising to return. By the time he did return, the colonists had vanished. Angela Hunt has pieced together historical records, folklore, and fact to create this compelling story of what most likely did happen to the colonists on Roanoke Island, while at the same time weaving a tale of God's mercy and grace.

The Final Order: Proves Srila Prabhupada is ISKCON's Initiating Guru

THE BOOK THAT HAS THE GURUS ON THE RUN!



"The Final Order by Krishnakant Desai has been perhaps the most influential post-1977 publication in the Vaisnava world."

- HH Bhakti Vikasa Swami, ISKCON guru

Who should initiate disciples in the Hare Krishna Movement?

The spiritual purity and general prestige of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON, or the Hare Krishna Movement) has undergone a serious meltdown since the physical departure on November 14th, 1977 of its pure and saintly founder, His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada. Most of the scandals that have rocked the Movement can be traced back to fairly blatant deviations from the instructions and pure standards given by Srila Prabhupada, the chief of which being his unauthorised displacement as the sole initiating (diksa) guru for ISKCON.

This particular deviation was highlighted in 1996 in the first edition of The Final Order which was sent to all ISKCON's leaders in a bid to help solve the Movement's problems. No ISKCON leader could now credibly claim to be oblivious to the legal documents, personally signed by Srila Prabhupada, that clearly set out his intention to remain the sole initiating guru for the global spiritual movement he founded. It is these legal documents that constitute the core of The Final Order.

Far from accepting the conclusions of The Final Order, ISKCON's Governing Body Commission (GBC) embarked on a systematic and sometimes brutal campaign of harassment, suppression and evasion. Surely it is no coincidence that most, if not all, of the members of the GBC are also initiating gurus?

This book will help the reader get to grips with the plain facts underlying one of the most fascinating and serious religious controversies of the modern age.

"The GBC should all be the instructor gurus. I am the initiator guru, and you should be the instructor guru by teaching what I am teaching and doing what I am doing."

- Srila Prabhupada Letter to Madhudvisa, 4/8/1975

"Yes, I am the spiritual master of this institution, and all the members of the Society, they're supposed to be my disciples. They follow the rules and regulations which I ask them to follow, and they are initiated by me spiritually."

The Qur'an (Oxford World's Classics)

'Read! Your Lord is the Most Bountiful one who taught by the pen, who taught man what he did not know.'

The Qur'an, believed by Muslims to be the word of God, was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad 1400 years ago. It is the supreme authority in Islam and the living source of all Islamic teaching; it is a sacred text and a book of guidance, that sets out the creed, rituals, ethics, and laws of the Islamic religion. It has been one of the most influential books in the history of literature. Recognized as the greatest literary masterpiece in Arabic, it has nevertheless remained difficult to

understand in its English translations. This new translation is written in a contemporary idiom that remains faithful to the original, making it easy to read while retaining its powers of eloquence. Archaisms and cryptic language are avoided, and the Arabic meaning preserved by respecting the context of the

discourse. The message of the Qur'an was directly addressed to all people regardless of class, gender, or age, and this translation is equally accessible to everyone.

ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

The Nondual Teachings of Christ, vol. 5

The Gospel of Thomas is perhaps one of the most enigmatic of religious scriptures. Yet it is also very likely that it is the earliest account of Jesus's teachings, and therefore the most authentic record we have today as to what he truly taught. Therefore, to understand this Gospel is to get at the heart of what the historical Jesus said far beyond how he has been (mis)interpreted through the centuries and by later followers.

This booklet seeks to shine a light on the more difficult sayings of Jesus, making explicit what is implicit in them and revealing their true character and quality. In this particular volume verses 23-28 are given full commentary, with more volumes to follow.

Foolish Virgins (Saved or Lost?)

There are many different ideas, opinions and sermons concerning the foolish virgins. However, I have never heard a message taught (about the foolish virgins) that comes close to this one.

The common belief is that the foolish virgins will have a second chance and that they will be saved through their own suffering during what tradition churches call "The Great Tribulation". My message regarding the foolish virgins is vastly different than the commonly accepted belief because I rely on the scripture to interpret the scripture.

This message comes with a warning. It is the single most essential message of our day. The fulfilling of Revelation 10:6. All who wish eternal life must know the following message, The Foolish Virgins (Saved or Lost).

The following pages contain life or death. Be careful of what attitude and spirit you manifest at this essential message!

Rights of the Hebrew Nation in Israel / Palestine: Evidence Based Argumentations

According to Time magazine ("A Land Divided", 25 March 2002) the history of the conflict started with the 1947 decision of the United Nations to divide Palestine between Jews and Arabs. With one strike on the journalist's keyboard, the entire history of the region was amputated at the year 1946, when Palestine was first divided, with the establishment of the Transjordanian Emirate, now known as Jordan. As a consequence of the misleading chronological presentation of events, a thirty-year history of bloodshed -- the period of the 1918-1948 British Mandate -- was wiped clean as if it had never happened. The purpose of this booklet is to present a series of argumentation based on evidence, solid information that precedes opinion, and proven data followed by a preliminary conclusion.

Bhagavad-gita As It Is

The largest-selling edition of the Gita in the Western world, Bhagavad-gita As It Is is more than a book. It is alive with knowledge and devotion; thus it has the power to change your life for the better.

Bhagavad-gita is knowledge of five basic truths and the relationship of each truth to the other: These five truths are Krishna, or God, the individual soul, the material world, action in this world, and time. The Gita lucidly explains the nature of consciousness, the self, and the universe. It is the essence of India's spiritual wisdom, the answers to questions posed by philosophers for centuries.

In translating the Gita, A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada has remained loyal to the intended meaning of Krishna's words, and thus he has unlocked all the secrets of the ancient knowledge of the Gita and placed them before us as an exciting opportunity for self-improvement and spiritual fulfillment.

The Gita is a conversation between Krishna and His dear friend Arjuna. At the last moment before entering a battle between brothers and friends, the great warrior Arjuna begins to wonder: Why should he fight? What is the meaning of his life? Where is he going after death?

In response, Krishna brings His friend from perplexity to spiritual enlightenment, and each one of us is invited to walk the same path.

When good or ill tidings come To threaten my equilibrium, I will travel that road And return to peaceful calm.
