Title: Buddhist Revival in India: Aspects of the Sociology of Buddhism
Author: Trevo Ling
Edition Year: 1980
Cover: Hardback
Subject: Buddhism
Language: English
Abstract: Until recently, Buddhism had almost disappeared from India, the land of its origin. In the last few decades the number of Buddhists in India has raised from few thousand to nearly four million. That is the official figure, and some observers put the number much higher. Most of these new Buddhists live in and around the state of Maharashtra, and most are former low caste Hindus who were led into the acceptance of Buddhism by their uncompromisingly snit-Hindu leader Dr. Ambedkar. Himself a man known for his outstanding personal and intellectual qualities. The book traces the way in which his dramatic rise to eminence in Indian public life made him a cult-hero to the Mahars, the lowcaste group to which he belonged and from which most of the new Buddhists have been recruited.

Title: Himalayan Voices: An Introduction to Modern Nepali Literature
Author:
Edition Year: 1993
Cover: Hardback
Subject: Literature
Language: English
Editedby: Michael James Hutt
Translatedby: Michael James Hutt
Abstract: This book is intended primarily for the reader who knows no Nepali. The approach was to provide an introduction to the works of a fairly limited number of important Nepali poets. Although the short story has developed strongly, the drama holds its ground in the face of fierce competition from the cinema, and the novel is increasingly popular, almost every Nepali writer composes poetry. Thus it is the first noble attempt made by the translator to explore current Nepali Literature and poems. It will contribute the knowledge and insight and also prove beneficial to students, beginners, readers, and those who are interested in literature.

Title: Portrait of a Chinese Paradise: Erotica and Sexual Customs of the Late Qing Period
Author: John Byron
Edition Year: 1987
Cover: Hardback
Subject: Education
Language: English
Abstract: This book is the first serious attempt to examine the erotica of the Qing period and to assess the part it plays within Chinese culture as a whole. At considerable personal risk, John Byron has built up a remarkable private collection of Chinese erotic artifacts in Peking. It consists of snuff, opium and medicine containers made of porcelain, glass, silver, pewter, jade and amber, wood block prints, porcelain figurines, glass paintings, hand mirrors and amulets. The pieces, most of which are from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, range from the coy of the thrillingly explicit, all of them demonstrate that beneath the Confucian mask of propriety there lies a healthy hedonism, which is also evident in the traditional Chinese institutions of polygamy, foot binding and elegant courtesans.

Title: Sufi Therapy of the Heart: A transcendent Experience
Author: David Heinemann

Subject: Sufism
Language: English
Abstract: In a scholarly and impressive work drawing upon numerous sources, from Pyramid texts in Egypt, to Persian and Indian writings David Heinemann shows that this is because of a dualism between Nature and the individual self. The necessity of transcendent experience for an integrated psyche has been ignored, causing people to turn to drugs, bizarre cults and alternative forms of medicine as a substitute. The universal incidence of Self transcendence of cases of mystical death and resurrection some of which are cited indicate the transcendent nature of the self.

Cover: Paperback
Subject: Buddhism
Language: English
Abstract: The vajra and bell are sacred objects used in Buddhist Tantric ritual. Their appearance may be familiar to us from Tibetan Buddhism,but how much do we know of the depth of their significance? Vessantara lays before us an unexpected array of associations and images, and ever deeper levels of meaning, to enrich our understanding of these powerful and fascinating symbols. The vajra embodies the attributes of a thunderbolt, a diamond, a philosophers stone, and a royal sceptre. The vajra-bell goes far beyond the usual symbolism of bells, leading us into a world that is timeless and immeasurable. It represents a mandala - sacred circle of a Tantric deity - and emptiness - the open-ended, ungraspable nature of everything.
