 Approaching the Land of Bliss: Religious Praxis in the Cult of Amitabha  Richard K. Payne Approaching the Land of Bliss: Religious Praxis in the Cult of Amitabha   $31.99  $23.99  Buy Now 
The discourse on Buddhist studies has traditionally been structured around texts and nations (the transmission of Buddhism from India to China to Japan). And yet, it is doubtful that these categories reflect in any significant way the organizing themes familiar to most Buddhists. It could be argued that cultic practices associated with particular buddhas and bodhisattvas are more representative of the way Buddhists conceive of their relation to tradition. This volume aims to explore this...

The work entitled 'Aspects of the Vedanta' is a collection of articles, written various eminent scholars of Sanskrit and Philosophy. The articles are...

 Astrological Concepts Worked Out and Explained  Dr. Prem Kumar Sharma Astrological Concepts Worked Out and Explained   $10.99  $8.24  Buy Now 
It is a well-established fact that since Vedic astrology has its basis in Vedic knowledge, it is as old as human creation and has been used from time immemorial to dispel the unfounded horrors and prejudices of the human mind. Rahu and Ketu, the two nodal points of the Moon, constitute the core of Vedic astrology. Ancient Indian seers visualized the north and the south nodes of the Moon as the most interesting and mysterious planetary influences. However, Rahu and Ketu have either been ignored...
