SPIRITUAL HINDU TALES TO CALM YOUR MIND (20 Spiritual Tales to Help You Experience The Power of Now!) THIS BOOK CONTAINS a selected collection of twenty spiritual tales with the object of comparing Eckhart Tolle ́s teachings with those of ancient Hinduism, evidencing that they both share the same basic truths and ideals. Now, you may ask yourself, what do the teachings of the celebrated author of the Power of Now really have in common with those of Hinduism and how can this ancient religion help us understand his basic concepts of inner stillness, enlightenment, the ego, the Self, the "voice in the head" and the experience of Oneness in the Now? To answer these questions, together with the spiritual tales contained in these pages, I have included selected comments from Hindu masters like Swami Sivananda, Sri Ramakrishna, Swami Vivekananda, Ramana Maharshi and Srila Prabhupada, among others.

IS IT TRUE THAT JESUS TRAVELED TO INDIA? Was he influenced by the ancient teachings of Hinduism and Buddhism? If not, why are there so many coincidences between Hinduism, Buddhism and the teachings imparted by Jesus? Why do the Gospels of Mark, Mathew, Luke, and John keep silent regarding his life from his twelfth year to his thirtieth, when he began his public life? What happened during those seventeen years silenced by the Gospels? Did he stay with his parents, as most Christians claim, or did he travel to distant lands, including the land of the Ganges? The mission of these pages is to answer these questions and try to unbury the truth, hoping to shed some light on these matters with the object of reaching a better understanding of the lost years of Jesus and the similarities between the spiritual teachings of Hindus, Buddhists, Christians, and Jews.

BUDDHIST MEDITATION FOR BEGINNERS THE LESSONS AND EXERCISES contained in this introductory book will help you understand Buddha's essential teachings (the Dharma, Way or Path), including the basics of Buddhist meditation practice. Apart from quoting ancient Buddhist scriptures, its pages include priceless advice from Dalai Lama, Eckhart Tolle, Krishnamurti and Alan Watts, among other renowned spiritual teachers. Although the ultimate goal of Buddhist meditation practice is attaining a state of spiritual Awakening or Enlightenment, it must be said that hardly anyone achieves this -except perhaps dedicated monks and advanced practitioners. In spite of this, there are many benefits attributed to regular meditation practice, as a recent Mayo Clinic report states: "Meditation can wipe away the day's stress, bringing with it inner peace... If stress has you anxious, tense and worried, consider trying meditation. Spending even a few minutes in meditation can restore your calm and inner peace... "Meditation can give you a sense of calm, peace and balance that benefits both your emotional well-being and your overall health. And these benefits don't end when your meditation session ends. "Meditation can help carry you more calmly through your day and may improve certain medical conditions..."

HinJew couples face the same issues as every couple, in addition to those related to their different ethnic backgrounds. This is a story that illuminates the true spirit of love, which reaches beyond cultural differences and shows us just how similar we are. We live in an integrated world: When there is unrest in the Middle East, global oil prices rise. When Silicon Valley downsizes, engineers in India lose their jobs. Multicultural families face similar challenges; they must balance multiple moving variables to keep the peace.

The Science of Spirituality is a ground-breaking book that integrates the individual systems of science, psychology, philosophy, spirituality and religion into a unified system that describes the multi-dimensional nature of man and the universe. It provides a more comprehensive description of reality than conventional science can offer and fully explains the mechanisms behind an array of paranormal phenomena that mainstream science chooses to ignore. It explains the science behind religious, spiritual and new-age belief systems, and sheds light on some common misconceptions. The Science of Spirituality systematically describes the mechanisms behind a diverse range of subject matter including: consciousness, sleep and dreams, reincarnation, religion, creation, evolution, space and time, higher dimensions, heaven and hell, ghosts, angels and demons, out of body experiences, near death experiences, clairvoyance, psychic abilities, personal development, meditation and the meaning of life.

Warm and witty, poignant and chilling by turns, here is a collection of twelve short stories as diverse as life itself. The settings are Indian no doubt, yet also universal in the human types and emotions so deftly and engagingly captured. What these stories have in common is a quiet, restrained, direct and simple style; deceptively simple and quiet however, for the evocation of place and atmosphere is vivid and the context packed with meaning: at times emotional, at times violent, at times muted, or even humorous, but never bland. The racy narrative carries the reader past many a sharp turn and anxious moment with a swift and graceful ease which makes reading this work a delight. Gabriel s use of traditional forms and techniques and his use of Indian settings make his work seem like a pleasing blend of Somerset Maugham and R.K. Narayan, but a unique and distinctive blend all the same.

At the dawn of the radio age in the 1920s, a settler-mystic living on northwest coast of British Columbia invented radio mind: Frederick Du Vernet—Anglican archbishop and self-declared scientist—announced a psychic channel by which minds could telepathically communicate across distance. Retelling Du Vernet’s imaginative experiment, Pamela Klassen shows us how agents of colonialism built metaphysical traditions on land they claimed to have conquered. Following Du Vernet’s journey westward from Toronto to Ojibwe territory and across the young nation of Canada, Pamela Klassen examines how contests over the mediation of stories—via photography, maps, printing presses, and radio—lucidly reveal the spiritual work of colonial settlement. A city builder who bargained away Indigenous land to make way for the railroad, Du Vernet knew that he lived on the territory of Ts’msyen, Nisga’a, and Haida nations who had never ceded their land to the onrush of Canadian settlers. He condemned the devastating effects on Indigenous families of the residential schools run by his church while still serving that church. Testifying to the power of radio mind with evidence from the apostle Paul and the philosopher Henri Bergson, Du Vernet found a way to explain the world that he, his church and his country made. Expanding approaches to religion and media studies to ask how sovereignty is made through stories, Klassen shows how the spiritual invention of colonial nations takes place at the same time that Indigenous peoples—including Indigenous Christians—resist colonial dispossession through stories and spirits of their own.

Guru English is a bold reconceptualization of the scope and meaning of cosmopolitanism, examining the language of South Asian religiosity as it has flourished both inside and outside of its original context for the past two hundred years. The book surveys a specific set of religious vocabularies from South Asia that, Aravamudan argues, launches a different kind of cosmopolitanism into global use. Using "Guru English" as a tagline for the globalizing idiom that has grown up around these religions, Aravamudan traces the diffusion and transformation of South Asian religious discourses as they shuttled between East and West through English-language use. The book demonstrates that cosmopolitanism is not just a secular Western "discourse that results from a disenchantment with religion, but something that can also be refashioned from South Asian religion when these materials are put into dialogue with contemporary social move-ments and literary texts. Aravamudan looks at "religious forms of neoclassicism, nationalism, Romanticism, postmodernism, and nuclear millenarianism, bringing together figures such as Swami Vivekananda, Sri Aurobindo, Mahatma Gandhi, and Deepak Chopra with Rudyard Kipling, James Joyce, Robert Oppenheimer, and Salman Rushdie. Guru English analyzes writers and gurus, literary texts and religious movements, and the political uses of religion alongside the literary expressions of religious teachers, showing the cosmopolitan interconnections between the Indian subcontinent, the British Empire, and the American New Age.

Showing how spiritual care is practiced in a variety of different contexts such as healthcare, detention and higher education, as well as settings that may not have formal chaplaincy arrangements, this book offers an original and unique resource for Hindu chaplains to understand and practice spiritual care in a way that is authentic to their own tradition and that meets the needs of Hindus. It offers a Hindu perspective for all chaplains to inform their caregiving to Hindus. The book explores the theological and metaphysical roots of Hindu chaplaincy and puts forward the case for Hindu chaplaincy as a valuable spiritual practice. It covers the issues that arise in specific locations, such as college, healthcare, prison, military and the corporate sector. Chapters also examine Hindu pastoral care offered in other, 'non-chaplaincy' settings, such as LGBT centres, social justice work and environmental activism. Made up of some 30 essays by chaplains, scholars and other important voices in the field, Hindu Approaches to Spiritual Care provides spiritual caregivers with a comprehensive theoretical and practical approach to the relationship of Hinduism and chaplaincy.

This book is an invaluable resource for enabling teachers, religious educators, and families to learn about religious diversity themselves and to teach children about both their own religion as well as the beliefs of others. The traditions featured include indigenous beliefs throughout the world, Native American spirituality, Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Christianity (Orthodoxy, Catholicism and Protestantism), Islam, Sikhism, and other beliefs such as Bahá'í, Unitarian Universalism, Humanism, and Atheism. Each chapter highlights a specific religion or spiritual tradition with a brief discussion about major beliefs, misconceptions, sacred texts, and holy days or celebrations. This summary of each tradition is followed by extensive annotated recommendations for children’s and adolescent literature as well as suggested teaching strategies. The recommended literature includes informational books, traditional religious stories, and fiction with religious themes. Teachers, religious educators, and family members will find the literature from these genres to be invaluable tools for bridging the religious experience of the child with that of the global society in which they live.
