Summary

In September 1939, Germany and the Soviet Union invaded and occupied the republic of Poland, dividing the country between them. Some two hundred thousand Polish soldiers became prisoners of war in Russian camps, which were often converted monasteries. In March 1940, Joseph Stalin approved a plan to murder twenty-two thousand officers, sergeants, and civilian intellectuals, the better to deprive eastern Poland of the men who might contest communist rule when the eastern half of the country was incorporated into the Soviet Union.

	After the German invasion of Russia the following year, the first mass graves were uncovered and revealed to the world by Nazi propagandists. The Russians in turn blamed the atrocity on the Germans, claiming that the bodies were actually Jews dressed in Polish uniforms. Britain and the United States accepted this fabrication so as not to harm their alliance with the Soviet Union. But in 1952 the U.S. Congress convened hearings that convincingly laid the murders at the doorstep of Stalin himself. This is the story of those findings.

    Yogachara, The Purity of Direct Experience, by Dr. Lee Embrey, is a modern interpretation of an ancient yogic method long since neglected, yet particularly relevant today. Focused on the ultimate goal of yoga—realization in the divine bliss of Love-Light-Consciousness—this book reinterprets the meaning and practice of the four main types of yoga: Raja (yoga through mind control), Hatha (yoga through bodily postures), Jnana (using thought to transcend thought), and Bhakti (rites, rituals, scriptural recitations, worship and devotional exercises). Taken together, these four are called the school of Yogachara. All four types need to be developed together to produce harmony within the personality. To that end, the author integrates them with Jungian personality-typology: Raja Yoga links to the Intuitive Type; Jnana Yoga, to the Thinking Type; Bhakti Yoga, to the Feeling Type; and Hatha Yoga, to the Sensation Type. 
    Yogachara introduces a wider, deeper menu of ways of thinking than you ordinarily may be familiar with: Associative, Focused, Conceptual and Pre-Conceptual, Cognitive, Reflective, Concrete vs. Symbolic, Contemplative, Creative Thinking and Thinking in “O,” and Spirit Thought (the “Great Thoughts,” big ideas of an epoch).         
    Experiential as well as discursive, this book offers readers specific, evocative meditations and exercises to experience all four levels comprising Yogachara, addressing: relaxation; breath; extroverted and introverted visions of the universe; opening the heart; sound; connecting with Oneness; light; giving love to your partner; projecting love and gratitude to the world; the yoga of sleep; intuition; and hatha yoga poses). 
    By combining the best elements of yogic spirituality into a harmonious, easy-to-follow everyday practice, the author seeks to bring this action of revitalization and redefinition to the reader in the form of Yogachara as a “new” yogic system of spiritual practice. And in the end, the book leads us closer to where we most want to be: “Becoming Real.”

    Religion Around Emily Dickinson

    Religion Around Emily Dickinson begins with a seeming paradox posed by Dickinson’s posthumously published works: while her poems and letters contain many explicitly religious themes and concepts, throughout her life she resisted joining her local church and rarely attended services. Prompted by this paradox, W. Clark Gilpin proposes, first, that understanding the religious aspect of the surrounding culture enhances our appreciation of Emily Dickinson’s poetry and, second, that her poetry casts light on features of religion in nineteenth-century America that might otherwise escape our attention. Religion, especially Protestant Christianity, was “around” Emily Dickinson not only in explicitly religious practices, literature, architecture, and ideas but also as an embedded influence on normative patterns of social organization in the era, including gender roles, education, and ideals of personal intimacy and fulfillment. Through her poetry, Dickinson imaginatively reshaped this richly textured religious inheritance to create her own personal perspective on what it might mean to be religious in the nineteenth century. The artistry of her poetry and the profundity of her thought have meant that this personal perspective proved to be far more than “merely” personal. Instead, Dickinson’s creative engagement with the religion around her has stimulated and challenged successive generations of readers in the United States and around the world.
