    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.

    Yogini: The Shady Side of Devi by: Dr Guido Zanderigo 900.00 810.00

    The Yoginis are awful expressions of the divine in feminine form of which evidence is found in Tantric contexts in both the Hindu and Vajrayana Buddhist traditions. Endowed with a multitude of aspects and functions, they may take the form of women or witches devoted to obscure rituals, of primordial forces linked with illness, poisoning and possession, of subtle beings present in supporting one for meditation like yantra and mantra, or of genuine gods who frighten and fascinate. Gathering in circles in the depths of the forest or in cremation grounds, the Yoginis engender powers and secret knowledge, granted to those who evoke them through practices which may be extreme. Ultimately the Yoginis keep company with death, offering to the initiates who surrender to their embrace the prospect of liberation beyond the glittering world of illusion.
    This book is a journey in search of these mysterious figures who nestle in the shadow of the Goddess. A journey which unfolds in the frontier zones of Indian tradition, constantly hanging in the balance between Tantric rituals, sacrifices and subtle knowledge – a perilous quest which is the heritage of all traditional searches.
    This volume written in elegant, fluent and colourful prose should entice the interest of all those associated with the Tantric practices, especially that of Saptamatrikas, ten Mahavidyas, Dakini and Nitya.

    दार्शनिक समीक्षा का सत्याग्रह by: Ambika Datta Sharma 750.00 675.00

    दार्शनिक समीक्षा का सत्याग्रह नामधेय यह कृति मेरे द्वारा दिए गए व्याख्यानों का एक परिमार्जित संग्रह है। यह सभी व्याख्यान भारत के प्रतिष्ठित शिक्षा संस्थानों में 2017-18 के दौरान भारतीय दार्शनिक अनुसन्धान परिषद् के अतिथि आचार्य (विजटिंग प्रोफेसर) के रूप में दिए गए थे। ऐसे संग्रह-ग्रन्थ में विचार केन्द्रित अन्विति नहीं होती, और यदि होती भी है तो उसे विचारक-केन्द्रित अन्विति के रूप में ही परखा जा सकता है। विचारों में विचारक-केन्द्रित अन्विति अनुप्रास युक्त पदों से निर्मित एक वाक्य की तरह होती है जिसके अलग-अलग पद आनुप्रासिक सौन्दर्य के साथ अर्थ का अभिधान करते हैं। इसी प्रकार का आनुप्रासिक सौन्दर्य एक व्यक्ति के बहुविध वैचारिक उपक्रमों की सार्थकता होती है। दार्शनिक समीक्षा के रूप में समाकलित इन सभी व्याख्यानों की अन्विति उनके सत्याग्रही होने में है। विचार का सत्य विचारों के मूलगामी अर्थ को उद्घाटित करना है। समीक्षा जब इस उद्देश्य के साथ प्रवर्तित होती है तभी “सत्याग्रह” उसका विशेषण बनता है।
