Like many other great religions of the world, Buddhism arose from the teachings of one man: in this case, Prince Siddhartha of Kapilavastu, later called Sakyamuni or Gautama. This book, turning to Buddhist scriptures and artistic monuments for its sources, presents the story of his life, so nearly as the facts can be determined, in a judicious, straightforward narrative designed for western readers. While it does not accept the pious myths and supernatural events as necessarily true, and does...

 The Incredible Sai Baba - The Life & Miracles of a Modern-Day Saint  Arthur Osborne The Incredible Sai Baba - The Life & Miracles of a Modern-Day Saint   $8.99  $6.74  Buy Now 
This book is an account of the strange life and amazing powers of Sai Baba, one of the most unusual of India's holy men. Sai Baba never wrote a book, never even read one, and yet learned scholars sat at his feet. He lived in a mosque, and yet his Hindu disciples outnumbered his Muslim ones. He taught them all according to their own faith, yet made them live at peace together. He taught through symbols, and through a wild profusion of well-attested miracles. Although Sai Baba died in 1918, he... 
 Silence Speaks  Baba Hari Dass Silence Speaks   $14.49  $10.87   
Temporarily Out of Stock
Baba Hari Das is a monk who does not speak. The practice of keeping silent is called in Sanskrit 'mauna'. Its aim is less about silencing the voice and more about silencing the mind which, as we know, tends to be filled with worries, desires, and clinging. This book offers the privilege of being touched with the advice and teachings of a spiritual master who, out of that silence, gives form to the unexplainable and sheds light on our daily life predicaments. Babaji writes: "There is an...

 Mahatma Gandhi: A Historical Biography  Bidyut Chakrabarty Mahatma Gandhi: A Historical Biography   $21.99  $16.49  Buy Now 
Quite distinct from the abundant literature available on Mahatma Gandhi, this historical biography attempts to articulate the historiography of India’s freedom struggle of which Gandhi was undoubtedly the central figure. Relooking at key issues and themes that have been raised in the research conducted over the past few decades, this is an interpretative essay that seeks to contextualize Gandhi and his ideology of ahimsa and satyagraha. Instead of focusing merely on Gandhi’s...

Since the appearance of the epoch-making works of Rhys Davis, Kern, and Oldenberg, the sources for the history of Buddha and Buddhism, have been greatly increased.
