Summary

In 1991, author Sunil Reddy was a college student in Hyderabad when he sought out Guruji Verahur V. Srinivasan, a retired deputy inspector general of police who was a Yogi and a God-realized saint. Reddy wanted to learn the art of meditation from this man who was a prodigy in mastering different spiritual paths. They connected, and for the next four years, the two met weekly. Guruji: Teachings of a Hindu Saint recounts those meetings and the lessons learned.   
Reddy presents this collection of spiritual practices and techniques gleaned from a master and designed to help guide a true practitioner. He narrates Gurujis visions and experiences with other masters, details the stages of spiritual progress, addresses distractions and detractions, repeatedly shows the qualities of true practice, and offers guideposts for assessment.   
Providing an in-depth look at many concepts central to the practice of Hinduism, Guruji: Teachings of a Hindu Saint guides disciples and seekers in their quest for spiritual enlightenment.

    In this enchanting sequel to the number one bestseller The Five People You Meet in Heaven, Mitch Albom tells the story of Eddie’s heavenly reunion with Annie—the little girl he saved on earth—in an unforgettable novel of how our lives and losses intersect. 
    Fifteen years ago, in Mitch Albom’s beloved novel, The Five People You Meet in Heaven, the world fell in love with Eddie, a grizzled war veteran- turned-amusement park mechanic who died saving the life of a young girl named Annie. Eddie’s journey to heaven taught him that every life matters. Now, in this magical sequel, Mitch Albom reveals Annie’s story. 
    The accident that killed Eddie left an indelible mark on Annie. It took her left hand, which needed to be surgically reattached. Injured, scarred, and unable to remember why, Annie’s life is forever changed by a guilt-ravaged mother who whisks her away from the world she knew. Bullied by her peers and haunted by something she cannot recall, Annie struggles to find acceptance as she grows. When, as a young woman, she reconnects with Paulo, her childhood love, she believes she has finally  found happiness.  
    As the novel opens, Annie is marrying Paulo. But when her wedding night day ends in an unimaginable accident, Annie finds herself on her own heavenly journey—and an inevitable reunion with Eddie, one of the five people who will show her how her life mattered in ways she could not have fathomed. 
    Poignant and beautiful, filled with unexpected twists, The Next Person You Meet in Heaven reminds us that not only does every life matter, but that every ending is also a beginning—we only need to open our eyes to see it.

    Living at the Edge of Chaos:...

    Helene Shulman integrates experiences of synchronicity, altered states of consciousness, trance, ritual, Buddhist meditation practice and creativity into a broad perspective on cross-cultural psychology. What emerges is a comprehensive way to understand psychological illness and healing as a perpetual work-in-progress near “the edge of chaos,” where the seeds for new models of reality lie. 
    With mental illness as the focus, she leads us on a fascinating interdisciplinary exploration, linking such areas as cultural studies, anthropology, evolutionary science and new work in mathematics and computer science – known as complexity theory – to Jungian psychology. 
    A new paradigm for postmodern psychology emerges as the author presents a dynamic theoretical model containing rational and irrational aspects of individual and collective life. 
     
    "The relevance of this work extends well beyond the field of psychology, for the author is describing the life experience of each of us in our personal and cultural milieu. The current states of our environmental, political and economic realities are presented as an urgent challenge to enter consciously into individual and community restoration work. Living at the edge of chaos, for all its apparent destruction, is nonetheless a source of spontaneity, creativity and hope." – Tuula Haukioja, Jungian analyst, Toronto
