Speaking of Siva
2 Speaking of Siva
U. K. Penguin 1973 0140442707 / 9780140442700 1st Edition 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. Book pages are browning due to age.

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.

157 pages. "With an engaging blend of scriptural reflection, theological investigation and very personal and human stories of struggle, confusion and journeys in faith, Father Ken Barker has provided his readers with a very real reason to live their lives in hope. Over and over again he shows us that the basis for this hope is Jesus Christ. As Father Barker insists, however, there is a world of difference between knowing about Christ and knowing Christ. It is when we encounter him as a living presence in our lives today, rather than simply an interesting and perhaps inspiring figure from the past, that our lives begin to be transformed by his saving grace. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to know Jesus better, love him more and serve him with generosity and courage." - Archbishop Timothy Costelloe SDB - Archbishop of Perth. Fr Ken Barker is the founder of the Missionaries of God's Love, a new emerging congregation in the Australian Church. He is a well-known conference speaker, involved in charismatic renewal, Disciples of Jesus Community, Young Men of God Movement, and various other youth ministries. He is the author of the books Becoming Fire, A Radical way of Love, Young Men Rise Up, and His Name is Mercy. Creases and wear.

172 pages. try has been a fertile source of inspiration to the many writers and artists who have followed in his footsteps. In this collection Patti Smith has collected together her personal selection of Blake's poems, including the complete poems from the famous Songs of Innocence and Songs of Experience, to give a singular picture of this unique genius. William Blake was born on 28 November 1757 in London. Instead of being sent to school he was given drawing classes from a young age.When he was fourteen he was apprenticed to the engraver James Basire and he later went on to work as an engraver, illustrator, printer and drawing teacher. In 1779 he became a student at the Royal Academy. In 1782 he married Catherine Boucher who was to become a great support to him throughout his life.His first collection of poems, Poetical Sketches was published in 1793. In 1789 he published Songs of Innocence which was followed by Songs of Experience in 1793. In the early 1800s he wrote his epic prophetic poems Milton and Jerusalem. He developed his own practice of illustrating his poetical works with his own etchings, producing beautifully illuminated editions. Blake's political beliefs were controversial for the times; he supported the French Revolution, condemned slavery and the subjugation of women. His religious beliefs were also idiosyncratic and he reported seeing visions of angels at various points in his life. Blake died, poor and in obscurity on 12 August 1827.

Australia Univ of Queensland Pr 2006 0702235423 / 9780702235429 1st Edition Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
204 pages. A humorous look at a usually lofty and intimidating topic the meaning of life this book documents one man's uphill journey to enlightenment. Explaining the attractions (and pitfalls) of a pick-and-choose approach, the discussion covers Eastern and Western beliefs, all the while elucidating their practices through personal anecdotes. An attack of existentialism, a dogged attempt to discover God through poetry, a doomed holiday at a health farm, and time spent at a ritual Egyptian dance workshop are some of the instructive stories offered, complete with such odd characters as a saffron-turbaned Dadaji, the poet Les Murray, and a Catholic priest who stops taking the author's calls. Phil Brown's life has been one long existential crisis. His path to enlightenment has been uphill - think of climbing Everest with a colonic irrigation or two along the way. Join Phil as he searches for meaning in the most unlikely places. Phil's journey begins inauspiciously when he is carted out of a health farm on a stretcher - good food and vigorous exercise apparently weren't a clever idea for a man with a stomach ulcer and a fear of vegans. Once back from the emergency ward, Phil gingerly dips his toes into a variety of experiences, from speaking in tongues to a ritual Egyptian dance workshop, not to mention meaning-of-life seminars and meditation. With a cast of curious characters including Guru Bubba John, Les Murray and a dial-a-clairvoyant, not to mention Phil himself, this hilarious book will have you doubled up with laughter. Settle yourself into the lotus position, grab a cup of peppermint tea, and enjoy the ride.
