    Woven on the Loom of Time by: M. Darrol Bryant 200.00 180.00

    How are we to understand the many religious traditions of humankind? Should we view our own religion as true and all others false? Should we regard all religions as the same? Should we view the religions as a cacophony? Professor Bryant explores these questions in this challenging book. He seeks to find a path through contemporary religious conflict that will lead us to greater understanding and appreciation of the plurality of religious traditions. Woven on the Loom of Time: Many Faith and One Divine Purpose argues that the religious traditions share a common purpose: to fit humanity for the Ultimate. But that shared purpose is unfolded differently in each religious tradition. Moreover, the great religious traditions unfold on the loom of time where they clothe and reshape our humanity to make us fit for the Ultimate. Professor Bryant unfolds his argument in five chapters. After an introductory chapter, he lays the foundation for an understanding of “dialogical humanity” that sees the religious traditions as “a dialogue with transcendence.” He then explores the multiform religious traditions – Hindu, Buddhist, Christian, Muslim, Confucian and Sikh – as “nurseries for the formation of humanity.” In the fifth chapter, he unfolds a “grammar of the spirit” that sees religion as shaping and clothing humanity on the loom of time. In the Epilogue, Bryant restates his thesis in a poem concerning “divine-human destiny.”

    Yama by: Kusum Pradeep Merh 550.00 495.00

    In the Hindu pantheon, Yama holds a unique place. A counterpart, in the indigenous tradition, of Avestan Yima, Egyptian Osiris or Greek Pluto, he inspires terror in the heart of an average mortal : not only owing to his overlordship of the abode of the dead, but also for his identification with death itself. Yama’s image in Hindu mythology, however, has come to have full many variants — which Dr. Merh’s study tries to capture against their essential literary settings. Based on the prodigious mass of India’s old-world scriptural literature — the Vedas, Samhitas, Brahmanas, Aranyakas and Upanishads, besides the puranic texts, the book meticulously explores all possible traits of Yama’s personality, highlighting how the mythical view of this glorious, other-world god passes through a striking change over the millennia between the Rigveda and the later Puranas. Unfolding the deity’s ‘Vedic’ and ‘Puranic’ descriptions — respectively in part 1 and part 2 of the book, the author focusses specially on Yama, the creator, preacher, the philosopher, the law-giver, the punisher and above all, on his role as an eschatologist. Invaluable to the scholars of Indology, Hindu mythology and comparative religion.

    Yantras of Deities and their Numerological Foundations by: Fredrick W. Bunce 1,500.00 1,350.00

    Hinduism is known for the bewildering profusion of its deities, who are represented not only in two or three dimensional anthropomorphic images, but also in abstract configurations, known as yantras. In yantras is, thus, seen almost a parallel with the surfeit of deities in Hindu tradition. Literally meaning an ‘instrument’, ‘apparatus’ or a ‘talisman’, yantra is a kind of mystical diagram used, in tantra, for both meditation and invoking a divinity, and is believed to possess/arouse occult powers. Drawn only by the adept: the ones schooled in this arcane, highly intricate process, and energized by siddh mantras, these seemingly innocuous geometrical figures are employed for any number of reasons or desires: whether to attain wealth, ward off disease, beget a son, vanquish enemies, or even to cause somebody’s death. This book, the latest from Professor Bunce, highlights the essential import of these innocuous-looking, yet enigmatic, diagrams surfacing from the occult Practices of the tantrics. The author, an internationally known scholar of Oriental Art, examines a range of tantric yantras, with their varieties, applications, modes of construction and, above all, their iconographic features. Also inter- woven in his text are lucid descriptions of all else associated with a yantra, notably, its deity, its specific purpose, its predominant and secondary numbers and its mantra. Carrying beautiful visual representations of over a hundred yantras, Professor Bunce’s study holds out enduring appeal to the readers concerned not only with the iconography of tantric yantras, but their mystifying under-pinnings as well.

    Yashdeva Shalya Samagra (4 volumes set) by: Ambika Datta Sharma 6,400.00 5,760.00

    Yashdeva Shalya Samagra is an authentic edition and consistent documentation of the complete philosophical journey of Shri Yashdeva Shalya. It is Yashdeva Shalya who can be considered as one of the most original thinkers of twentieth-century India, after the advent of Sri Aurobindo. The philosophical contributions of Yashdeva Shalya have taken the shape of a complete system of philosophy during his active engagement with the East and West history of ideas for the last five decades. It is widely known as the philosophy of Chidadvaitavada which truly depicts the metaphysics of human creativity. For Yashdeva Shalya, all modes of human creativity vis-à-vis philosophy, religion, history, culture, literature, ethics, aesthetics and scientific temper are nothing but an unending quest of self-conscious being in the direction of getting rid of its self-alienation. Thus, four volumes of Yashdeva Shalya Samagra, i. e. Jnana aur Sat, Cit aur Mulya, Samaj aur Sanskriti and Darshnik Itihas-Dristi provide a penetrating philosophical reflection on the self-conscious act of self-conscious being engaged in the cultivation of culture and civilization through different modes of creativity. The collection of these four volumes will be certainly a valuable asset for the library of any institution and for sincere knowledge seekers.

    Yoga Nidra — Yogic Trance by: N.C. Panda 625.00

    Healing of body and mind through yoga is gaining immense significance at present as a world-wide science of therapy. In this context, yoga-nidra, a self-therapy technique of yoga and tantra, is important as an effective means of regulating the mind. In this volume, Dr. Panda, a noted philosopher and psychologist, yogi and tantrist, delves into the principles and practices of yoga-nidra based on materials from the tantras and Patanjali Yoga in an attempt to explain its benefits with special reference to modern medicine. The book presents yoga-nidra as a scientific discipline that is a potent means to strengthen the body’s immune system and thus to prevent and cure diseases and to regulate one’s life patterns. It examines in detail the theory of yoga-nidra, going into the Indian concept of mind and personality. It establishes the psychological basis of yoga-nidra by comparing hypnotic trance and yogic trance and Freudian and Yoga-Vedanta psychologies. It then lucidly presents the techniques of yoga-nidra and deals with the applications of yoga-nidra with relation to curing of psychosomatic and other diseases of common occurrence and to solving current problems such as drug-addiction and stress-induced maladies. This well-conceived and thorough research work will prove useful to scholars of ancient Indian medical science and psychology, particularly those concerned with study of yoga vis-a-vis modern medical problems and systems. It will be of equal importance for the general readers owing to its interesting subject matter, simple style of presentation and easy adoption by the non-adepts.

    “Yoga psychology is both a positive and a normative science. It not only analyses human personality and its growth, but sets normative ideals and prescribes techniques to achieve such objectives, as well. Thus, expansion of consciousness and making oneself the master of his/her mind are the broad objectives of yoga psychology. The topological aspect of mind as described by Freud in terms of conscious, subconscious and unconscious levels was well detailed in the yogic literature, thousands of years ago. The sound practice of yoga enables one to have a disease-free body and keen intellect.
    The book, thus, details the impact of various yoga practices on psychology and specifies that consciousness has a wider conation in yoga. Yoga presents vivid and sound meditation procedures for the attainment of psychic consciousness through the awakening of kundalini. Homeostasis or balance is the central principle in yoga psychology, and it holds that any sort of imbalance in the system — physical, psychological or pranic — creates disorders and the solution lies in rebalancing it. Here comes the role of yogic psychotherapies such as prarthana, mantra sadhana, spiritual couselling, pranayama, yajna, sankirtana, svadhyaya and vrata anushthana.
    This volume enunciates that yoga psychology is an applied science, and thus has remedies for many individual and social problems. It deals at large with the application and benefits of yogic practices in developing one’s personality traits and leveraging them further to keep him/her happy and experience a blissful life.”

    Yogik Sidhiyan by: Jaipal Sharma 190.00 171.00

    India is invariably the homeland for Yoga being entrusted to the offsprings of Rishis–Maharshis of the olden times. Yoga is for the physical, mental, intellectual and spiritual development of a human being. At one end the attainment of salvation through one’s spiritual awakening and knowledge of the eternal truth is considered as the essence of yoga, on the other an efficient yogi can attain the special mystical powers through yoga sadhana. All this has been illustrated in the book Patanjaliyogadarshana of Maharshi Patanjali. The attainment of mystical powers should not be the prime object of yogic exercises, but most of the practitioners adhere to them to attain para-natural powers only. Though it is impossible in today’s scientific age to easily believe in these mystical powers, this book majestically proves citing various examples, that these superhuman powers are not mere illusions but can be assimilated and achieved easily even in the materialistic world of today. These powers can be accomplished by practising the specifically prescribed path of the yogic philosophy. Such powers, when achieved should not make a person self-indulgent, but these should be used for the public welfare only. This book, undoubtedly, will be beneficial not only for those who specialize in yoga but also for a layman.
