Autobiography of a Sadhu - Journey into mystic India 1109005   $ 35.00
Product Image The first insider account of an ancient and secretive tradition • By the first foreigner to become a member, and later an elder, of the Juna Akhara, the oldest and largest grouping of Naga Babas • Filled with true accounts of magic, miracles, ghosts, and austerities • With lessons on Hindu gods, ayurveda, and Indian culture woven throughout. After traveling at age 18 from his native California to India in 1969, Rampuri was drawn to the Naga Babas, an ancient and wild order of naked yogis whom he calls the “Hell’s Angels of Indian Spirituality.” Organized into a sect by Adi Shankara in the 5th century BC, the Naga Babas see themselves as the ultimate protectors of the Sanatan Dharma, or what we call the Hindu religion. Rampuri became a disciple of a Naga Baba--a master shaman sadhu--from Rajasthan and, as foretold by astrological prophecy, soon found himself the first foreigner to become an initiate of the Juna Akhara, the oldest and largest grouping of Naga Babas with more than 50,000 sadhu members. From drinking the “Nectar of Immortality” at the source of the Ganges River to allegations of tantric murder, this autobiography is filled with true accounts of magic, miracles, ghosts, and austerities, with lessons on Hindu gods, ayurveda, mantra, and Indian culture woven throughout. Through his journey of extremes, Rampuri takes us into the mystic heart of India.

Death Beginning or End 1104104   $ 25.00
Product Image They say there are two things we can't escape: death and taxes. You can understand taxes by getting information from the I.R.S. And you can get information about the nature of death by getting Death: Beginning or End? by Dr. Jonn Mumford. Does the very mention of death sound morbid? It shouldn't. Here in the West it is thought of in that way, but in the East (Dr. Mumford is also known as Swami Anandakapila Saraswati) it is considered a natural part of existence. But death seems so ... final. Right now people are doing everything they can to avoid death. Doesn't it make sense, then, to learn everything you can about death? This book is your key to that understanding. The book begins with an analysis of exactly what life is. You may be surprised to learn that life is more than what is in the body. Dr. Mumford documents cases where people have continued to act intelligently after the parts of the brain that are supposed to hold the consciousness have been destroyed! How can this be unless the mind is separate from the physical body? So if the mind is not part of the physical body, where is it? Dr. Mumford, with his years of training, reveals that you actually have five bodies, of which the physical is merely one. Different aspects of the consciousness are associated with each of the bodies. Death occurs when the bodies separate. So what can you do about death? Of course, it is possible through medicine, exercise, and diet to delay it. But eventually it will happen. So what will happen to you? Is it possible for the mind to survive death? You'll find the answers here. But an amazing thing will happen as you learn more and more about the nature of death. You will discover that death is just a part of life. The book not only gives you a better attitude about life, but also provides little-known meditation techniques to help delay aging.

Greatest Hits of the Kali Yuga Yoga CD (Includes DVD): 1104089   $ 52.00
Product Image They say that in the Kali Yuga - that period in the vast Vedic cycle of ages at which the light of spirit is dimmest in the world: a sort of dark night of the soul on a cosmic scale - the most effective practice for most people is the repetition of the Divine Names. For thousands, Krishna Das' recordings, kirtans, and workshops have been a doorway into that practice and a compelling taste of the sweetness of Bhakti Yoga, the yoga of devotion.

Hafiz - The Scent of Light CD 1103020   $ 28.00
Product Image Poetry and Music from the Great Sufi Master and Poet In modern day Persia, the 14th-century poet Hafiz remains the most treasured voice of his homeland - a place where his work outsells Rumi, and even the Koran. Yet only recently have Westerners come to know this wild Sufi mystic's astonishing verses on love and spiritual longing. Now, with "Hafiz: The Scent of Light", you will join Daniel Ladinsky — the acclaimed translator of The Gift — to revel in more than 30 of Hafiz' most stirring works. Offered here in the manner that Hafiz composed them, spoken or sung spontaneously amid companions and inspired music, each of these exquisite love songs (ghazals) shimmers with a nuance, depth, and passion rarely captured in previous translations. Hafiz once said: "A poet is someone who can pour light into a cup, then raise it to nourish your beautiful parched holy mouth." From his vision of an all-embracing Beloved who sees beyond our religious beliefs to his revelations on the oneness of worldly ecstasy and spiritual awakening, Hafiz continues to pour the light of his poetry forth today. Music composed and performed by Stevin McNamara (sitar and nylon string guitar), with special guest artists/composers Steve Gorn (bansuri flute), Jeffrey Rodgers (tabla, santoor, ethnic drums, percussion), Annette Cantor (vocals), Pandit S.N. Sopori (drupad/khyal/tarana singing), Bhushan Sopori (tabla), and Aurelia Roze (violin). Read by Nataraja Kallio

Last Lama Warrior 1103009   $ 48.00
Product Image The first book in English to reveal the principles and techniques of the Tibetan martial art of Senguei Ngaro Written by the last holder of the Senguei Ngaro to receive this teaching from its last surviving master Reveals the postures, rules, and teachings of this martial art rooted in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition Senguei Ngaro, which means "the lion’s roar,' is a traditional martial art that was born in the Kham region of Tibet and was secretly handed down by its lineage of warrior monks from the fifteenth century until 1956, when Chinese soldiers destroyed the monastery and massacred all the monks. The superior of the monastery, Lama Bui, survived and fled to the West where he taught it to Lama Tra, the teacher of the author of this book. Today Yogi Tchouzar Pa is the keeper and guardian of this almost vanished tradition. Senguei Ngaro consists of a series of 86 movements and 10 techniques inspired by animal behavior. It offers both a formidable art of combat and, when combined with its advanced meditation on the ultimate nature of spirituality, a means of spiritual advancement. In "The Last Lama Warrior", Yogi Tchouzar Pa provides for the first time in English a fully illustrated and detailed explanation of these postures and their purpose as well as the spiritual principles and traditions on which they are founded. As Yogi Tchouzar Pa explains, "it is only by practicing the physical forms that the depth of the spiritual principles can be understood."
