Summary

Bestselling author Howard Fast’s straightforward introduction to Zen meditationHoward Fast began to formally practice Zen meditation after turning away from communism in 1956. The Art of Zen Meditation, originally published by the antiwar political collective Peace Press in 1977, is the fruit of Fast’s study: a brief and instructive history of Zen Buddhism and its tenets, written with a simplicity that is emblematic of the philosophy itself. Fast’s study of Zen also inspired his popular Masao Masuto mystery series about a Zen Buddhist detective in Beverly Hills, which he published under the pseudonym E. V. Cunningham. The Art of Zen Meditation is illustrated with twenty-three beautiful photographs. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Howard Fast including rare photos from the author’s estate.

    An inspiring message for all humanity from         one ofIndia’s most beloved spiritual teachers       
     If Sri Ramakrishna was a leaping flame of         spiritual realization, Holy Mother was a steady glowing fire of         God-consciousness. To the Master, Sri Ramakrishna, she was the         goddess of wisdom in human form. To her disciples she was the         Divine Mother herself. To her devotees she was a more real         mother than their own earthly mother. To the seekers of truth         she was the final word, and to sinners she was the last refuge.          
    —from the Introduction      
     The year 2003 marked the 150th anniversary         of the birth of Sri Sarada Devi, the wife and spiritual         companion of Sri Ramakrishna. Known affectionately in India and         throughout the world as the Holy Mother, she was a rare         combination of human and divine qualities, and is an         inspiration today to millions who seek spiritual fulfillment.      
     The first American edition of the         conversations and teachings of the Holy Mother as recorded by         her disciples, both lay and monastic, this fascinating         collection brings to life the Holy Mother’s teachings on         human affliction, self-control, and peace in ways both personal         and profound. It illuminates her role as the power, scripture,         joy, and guiding spirit of the Ramakrishna Order and clearly         captures her unyielding devotion to God that earned her a         reputation as a steady glowing fire of God-consciousness.      
     Translated from the original Bengali by         Swami Nikhilananda, a direct disciple of the Holy Mother, these         inspiring and detailed conversations offer new insight into the         daily life of this endearing and beloved spiritual personality         and her message of compassion that continues to influence her         devotees in India and throughout the world.

    A year’s worth of novellas from twelve inspirational romance authors. Happily ever after guaranteed.
     
    As far as Kelsey Wilcox is concerned, her last cowboy was the last cowboy. 
     
    Kelsey Wilcox has had enough of cowboys. After the last one broke her heart, Kelsey traded in her boots for flip-flops, and the open range for a bistro on the beach.  Her life on Corpus Christi’s gorgeous beach might be a little lonely, but at least it’s heartbreak-free. At least until her cousin’s beachside wedding bucks Kelsey right back into the rodeo.
     
    When unlucky-in-love Brent Corbin packed his groomsman’s tux for his friend’s wedding, he brought his boots and belt buckle with him. Brent isn’t exactly looking for love, but when he sees what appears to be a mermaid in distress, he jumps right in to rescue her. 
     
    So Kelsey finds herself plucked from the sea—and certain-drowning—by a gorgeous groomsman . . . in soaked cowboy boots. She’s quick to say thanks, but no thanks.
     
    Brent dedicates the weekend to pursuing Kelsey—and Kelsey spends the weekend trying to deny an obvious match. She’s as stubborn as a wild horse, but Brent’s determination may tame her yet.

After perfecting the                 practice of several religions—including Christianity,                 Islam and various traditions of Hinduism—he declared,                 “As many faiths, so many paths.”             
    For the first time, two classic                 biographies—Dhan Gopal Mukerji’s The Face of                 Silence (1926) and Swami Nikhilananda’s Sri Ramakrishna                 (1942)—are brought together to provide a fuller                 understanding of the life and spiritual significance of Sri                 Ramakrishna as well as the systems of Indian religious thought                 intimately connected with him. Pairing legend with fact, memory                 with history, this unique volume—including an                 Introduction to Sri Ramakrishna’s God-consciousness by                 Swami Adiswarananda—succeeds in intimately examining the                 teachings of Sri Ramakrishna and conveying the true story of                 this great mystic, whose leaping flame of spiritual realization                 continues to influence the modern spiritual search.
