Speaking of Siva
2 Speaking of Siva
U. K. Penguin 1973 0140442707 / 9780140442700 1st Edition Glossy Soft Cover Good 16mo 
199 pages translated and with an introduction by A.K. Ramanujan. Speaking of Siva / Shiva is a selection of vacanas or free-verse sayings from the Virasaiva religious movement, dedicated to Siva as the supreme god. Written by four major saints, the greatest exponents of this poetic form, between the tenth and twelfth centuries, they are passionate lyrical expressions of the search for an unpredictable and spontaneous spiritual vision of 'now'. Here, yogic and tantric symbols, riddles and enigmas subvert the language of ordinary experience, as references to night and day, sex and family relationships take on new mystical meanings. These intense poems of personal devotion to a single deity also question traditional belief systems, customs, superstitions, image worship and even moral strictures, in verse that speaks to all men and women regardless of class and caste. Shiva is usually worshiped in the aniconic form of Lingam.

Australia Margitta Acker 2009 3866141416 / 9783866141414 1st Edition Soft Cover Very Good 12mo Signed by Author
133 pages including b/w photos. Originally published under the title "Vom Ostseestrand in Fernes Land", this text was translated by the author with assistance of Tim Acker. Author's note: "This is not an absolutely exact translation of the original published in Germany. The publishers deleted a number of paragraphs, from the original manuscript some of which, I felt, should stay. I have, of course, adhered to thesequence of events, but occasionally added an explanatory word or sentence, at other times deleted this or that. All of this does in no way affect the overall story. The other difference between this and the original version is that in this translated version I have used actual names throughout, in the original version all family names were changed for privacy reasons, although most first names were not. Also, this translated version includes a few additional photos. Contents: This is how it all began - to 1939; Childhood by the sea - 1939-1945; Journey into the unknown - 1945-1946; Difficult beginnings - 1946-1950; The end of childhood - 1950-56; A voyage to America; What shall I do with the rest of my life? - 1956-1959; To the far end of the earth - 1959-1962; Christmas on the beach - 1962.

Together they offer an intimate insight into a community negotiating the conflict between tradition and modernity, and the complex tribal affiliations of the extended family.

U. K. HarperPerennial 2004 000716310X / 9780007163106 1st Edition Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
199 pages. The life story of Isabel Allende -- one of the world's favourite writers -- is as exotic, passionate and inspiring as one of her novelsMy Invented Country is a memoir in which truth is most definitely stranger than fiction. Exploring the events of her life and those of the country in which she lived until the assassination of her cousin, the president Salvador Allende, in Pinochet's military coup, Allende takes us on a highly personal tour through her homeland, bringing it to life. In this charming book, portraits of her family and friends jostle with vivid descriptions of local customs and beliefs but through it all strides the indomitable figure of the young Isabel. Rebellious and passionate, a feminist long before she knew what feminism was, her love for (sometimes exasperation with) Chile informs every line. And her experiences make for unforgettable, often hilarious reading that no admirer of Allende's writing will want to miss.

The Karma of Culture, Arasanayagam, Jean
10 Arasanayagam, Jean The Karma of Culture
Canada Trafford Pub 2005 1412050790 / 9781412050791 1st Edition Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
xxi + 150 pages. This book provides a thoughtful approach to some important and highly topical questions on what constitutes Australia's nationhood. It appeals to academics, public servants, students, and many members of the general public. Culture is ubiquitous. Culture is all-pervasive. Many (mainly Asian) immigrants take into white host nations strongly divergent, and historically durable, cultural stances and practices. In the migrant-receiving countries of the Western world, the core issue of a conflict between a sustained attempt by such immigrants to retain their cultures and the osmotic force of equal opportunity offering an earlier and smoother integration into the values and mores of the host people bobs up and down in the seas of social policy. Cultural diversity can therefore be de-stabilising to a hitherto cohesive society. The national identity which had evolved through the merging of culturally compatible tribes and peoples can now be seen to be threatened. Whilst this book is about Australia, the issues raised have relevance for all immigrant-receiving nations. One's culture provides the template for dealing with life. Its base is laid in childhood, through the values imposed by family and community. The cultural practices of one's tribe reinforce these values and associated perceptions. The impacts of nurture (experience) upon nature (inheritance), as one passes through life, are filtered through this network of cultural values. A conditioned belief among some in the West that a human zygote equates to a human being, contrasting with an older Asian belief that the human soul enters a baby's body at or after birth, is reflective of divergent cultural values. The need for immigrants to reconcile their inherited cultural values and associated practices with the predominant values and practices of their adopted nation-state can create stresses on both cultures. The issues which arise from this cross-cultural impact are those of: equal opportunity; whether a unified people can arise from a wide tribal diversity; individualism vs the collective (the family), ie whether the individual or the family unit has priority in terms of rights and responsibilities; the definition of family, and its role in society; cultural hegemony and political sovereignty in a globalising nation-state; the place of the Creator in modern life; and whether Australia's 'fair-go' social and policy ethos needs an infusion of Asian values.

Creation’s Cry: The Heart of Apostolic Passion, Atkin, Don
11 Atkin, Don Creation’s Cry: The Heart of Apostolic Passion
Don Atkin 1931527970 / 9781931527972 Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
224 pages. In a day when so many either ignore apostolic ministry, or others pervert its meaning, it is a joy to read and understand the big picture of what the Lord has purposed for His Church. There's so much rich wisdom Don conveys in "Creation's Cry". According to Steve Eastman, "Don Atkin began his journey with God in 1963. He was firmly entrenched in the church system. A few years later he migrated from sunny California to snowy, upstate New York. His story brought back memories of other families I had met in the church system, who experienced miraculous provision as they sold out to God and trusted Him to meet all their needs. But God is not static. Neither was He content to allow Don Atkins to camp out at his initial understanding of the Kingdom of God. Don ended up on the receiving end of two mentoring relationships that helped him move beyond the traditional paradigm of church. It seems much of the church is obsessed with saving souls, which it subsequently abandoned. The New Testament emphasizes discipling newly born believers. For Don, that came to include hosting long-time house guests, who caught the Christian life by watching Jesus live out His life through him and his family. Don is not a hierarchical guy. He sees apostles as wise master builders whose influence stems from their function, not a position. A man’s gifts make room for him, and people gifted to be apostles come to be recognized as such through the fruit in their lives. Don did not obey his mentors because they demanded it, but because he recognized God working through them. Mentoring is intended to be temporary, leading the disciple to where he can hear God for himself, no longer needing a constant intermediary. I would be less than honest if I said everything in the book blessed me. One part was disturbing because it illustrates a style of parenting in sharp contrast to my own. Don tells about a time when his daughter was arriving from school. He had always told her to come straight home. At 20 minutes past the deadline, Don went to look for her and found her talking to a boy. He sent her to her room until he had cooled off, went in to speak with her and accepted her apology. They he spanked her with a paddle. He says she took it well. In my opinion, what worked for Don and his daughter, would not work for the majority of families. A child who was spanked after being told she was forgiven would normally feel betrayed and resentful. Just as a disciple needs to be gradually given more responsibility before the end of a discipling relationship, I feel a child needs to grow in decision-making before reaching adulthood. Otherwise, he or she is not ready to accept adult responsibilities. If a daughter is old enough to be interested in boys, she is probably too old to spank. A more appropriate punishment would be a loss of privilege. Perhaps if Don had included his daughter’s age in the story, his actions would have been more understandable. I do not wish to belabor my one area of disagreement with a book I found to be otherwise sound. Don Atkins has a lot to offer in practical experience as he teaches on the apostolic. You will learn more from him than you would at most apostolic-prophetic conferences."

Australia Australian Academy of Science 1981 0858470950 / 9780858470958 1st Edition Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
xvi + 143 pages. Research into lead and the Australian health environment brought some unexpected answers: Some evidence suggested lead is added in some way to food and beverages during processing, some children ingest lead from dust or dirt, from lead paint on old houses, lead toys or dust on clothes of family members who work in the lead industry - Australia IS one ‘of the world's largest producers of lead. There is, however, no clear-cut level of lead concentration in blood above which adverse effects are observed. While the researchers said their findings on humans did not give rise to grave concern, their conclusion was that certain limited populations are at risk and require identification. Lead from motor exhausts does not produce signs and symptoms of clinical lead poisoning. But, reports from overseas and Australia suggest adverse effects from this may be less obvious, especially on the mental and behavioural developments of children.

xiv + 274 indexed pages. The ultimate guide for parents who dream of having a little less chaos and a lot more time for the good things in life Written by mother of five, Nicole Avery, this book shows harried parents how, with just a bit of planning, family life can become easier to manage, less stressful, and decidedly more fun. "Dream on," you say? "I might as well try to herd cats as to get my kids to follow a lot of arbitrary rules!" And Nicole would agree, which is why Planning with Kids isn't like any other parenting guide out there. It was inspired by Nicole's blog of the same name, which, over the past three years, has garnered a huge audience of likeminded parents who have achieved nothing short of miraculous results following her advice. While other prescriptive guides offer mums and dads cook-cutter solutions to the challenges of raising kids, this handbook focuses on one simple, straightforward idea: by implementing a few simple strategies for how you do things, you'll make more time for you to be you and your kids to be kids. You'll find strategies for streamlining and enhancing everything from the routines of daily life, to family relationships, to budgeting and finances, playtime and much more! Nicole Avery is the master organiser behind popular blog 'Planning with Kids', where she shares tips and tricks to organising the chaos of family life. This is her first book.

A Road from Damascus, Balderstone, David
15 Balderstone, David A Road from Damascus
Australia The Poppy Press 1992 0646114409 / 9780646114408 1st Edition Soft Cover Good 12mo 
219 pages. This book ventures behind daily news of the Middle East - images of killings, assassinations, bombings and faltering peace talks - to tell the story of ordinary Israelis and Palestinians caught up in the Middle East quagmire. The story of a Palestinian family and an Israeli family driven apart by the Arab-Israeli conflict emerges as British spy Dickie Jones attempts to reverse his dwindling career fortunes by exploiting his daughter’s friendship with an Australian archaeologist and photo-journalist. The Australian’s friendship with a Palestinian businessman reveals the saga of the two families, who for decades had been friends and neighbours in Jerusalem up to the years before modern Israel was founded. After more than forty years apart, the separate ways of the families cross briefly and tragically. This encounter focuses attention on the elusiveness of truth in the Middle East. Despite the undoubted tragedy of the Arab-Israeli dispute, the novel captures the humour, irony and fatalism of the area and its people, whose resilience belies the seriousness of the situation. David Balderstone was Middle East Correspondent for The Age, Melbourne, from 1977- 1983. During this time, he was a regular visitor to Ayatollah Khomeini’s Iran, covered peace negotiations between Egypt and Israel, and was a front line reporter on the Iran/Iraq war front and in Lebanon. Since then, he has visited the area regularly, and broadcast extensively on Middle East politics for the ABC ’s Radio Australia. He began his career as a cadet journalist on 'The Age' in 1966.

Australia Hodder & Stoughton 1987 0340372036 / 9780340372036 1st Edition Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
32 pages including colour illustrations. During the eighteen months my son Anthony was under treatment for cancer, we all - doctors, nurses and family - developed the habit of greeting him with "What's up, mate?". We didn't expect a reply but more often than not we did get a smile. Perhaps in the beginning, the question was too difficult for a six-year-old child to answer. During the long period of struggling to communicate and cope, Anthony himself became aware of our problem. When I decided to try to put it all down on paper, the idea was instantly endorsed "The kids need it, Mum," said Anthony. So do parents, friends, relatives and teachers. I hope that "What's Up Mate?" will make it just a little easier to cope in a very difficult situation.
