Night Journey to Buddh Gaia

As the ancient Egyptians enacted a night journey through their Underworld to Sunrise, the scarab beetle pushing its ball of clay before it, this book charts a night journey through the darkness of nature and culture to Earthrise.

Charts a night journey through the darkness of nature and culture to Earthrise. Seeing our planet coming up over a lunar horizon, the author, believing that he has good reason to do so, names it Buddh Gaia, a compound of Sanscrit and Greek, suggesting enlightenment not just now and from now on, but all the was back through the geological ages.

Woven Shades of Green is an annotated selection of literature by authors who focus on the natural world and the beauty of Ireland. It begins with the Irish monks and their largely anonymous nature poetry, written at a time when Ireland was heavily forested. A section follows devoted to the changing Irish landscape, through both deforestation and famine, including the nature poetry of William Allingham, and James Clarence Mangan, essays from Thomas Gainford and William Thackerary, and novel excerpts from William Carleton and Emily Lawless. The anthology then turns to the nature literature of the Irish Literary Revival, including Yeats and Synge, and an excerpt from George Moore’s novel The Lake. Part four shifts to modern Irish nature poetry, beginning with Patrick Kavanaugh, and continuing with the poetry of Seamus Heaney, Eavan Boland, and others. Finally, the anthology concludes with a section on various Irish naturalist writers, and the unique prose and philosophical nature writing of John Moriarty, followed by a comprehensive list of environmental organizations in Ireland, which seek to preserve the natural beauty of this unique country. Published by Bucknell University Press. Distributed worldwide by Rutgers University Press.

An autobiography of John Moriarty's life in Connemara during the 1980s and the return to his native Kerry. This extra-ordinary work of autobiography concludes the story of John Moriarty's life in Connemara during the 1980s and the return to his native Kerry. He relates the particularities of his time at Toombeloa, Roundstone and environs, where he worked restoring gardens and building his own house. He describes his adopted family and the children of the household, with sorties to Dublin for Christmas; his neighbourhood and community; the writer Tim Robinson; returned pine martens, the fish and flora of a historic landscape; a lecture tour in Canada, organized by his former students; his engagement with the immensities of the natural and spiritual worlds. He calls to account the literatures and legacies of European thought made manifest in the western extremities of Ireland as they bear witness to his own inner and outer journey, now documented in this compelling and writerly masterwork.

A wonderful walk through the story of Moriarty's childhood growing up on a small farm in north Kerry, and his lifelong engagement with traditional Catholic sacraments, taking as his point of departure Philip Larkin's poem 'Church Going' - a richly meditative essay of extraordinary resonance that begins with a visit to the island of Inis Fallen on Loch Leine: 'People say we live in a time of ritual deprivation. Not so people of my age born into Christian Ireland. From three days' of age I was inducted onto the Christian sacramental road, and that journey I rehearse in this book.'

The thought of G.W.F. Hegel (1770-1831) haunts the world of theology. Constantly misunderstood, and often maliciously misrepresented, Hegel nevertheless will not go away. Perhaps no other thinker in Christian tradition has more radically sought to think through the requirements of perfect open-mindedness, identified as the very essence of the truly sacred. This book is not simply an interpretation of Hegel. Rather, it belongs to an attempt, so far as possible, to re-do for today something comparable to what Hegel did for his day. Divine revelation is on-going: never before has any generation been as well positioned as we are now, potentially to comprehend the deepest truth of the gospel. So Hegel argued, of his own day. And so this book also argues, of today. It is an attempt to indicate, in Trinitarian form, the most fundamentally significant ways in which that is the case. Thus, it opens towards a systematic understanding of the history of Christian truth, essentially as an ever-expanding medium for the authentic divine spirit of openness.

The Way of the Clouds – and of the heart. Striking photos of clouds anticipate each chapter of the text, introducing us to the experiences recounted for us while beautifully expressing the emptiness, the impermanence and ephemerality of material things. With surprising ease, Bansō rattles off pearls of ancient wisdom. The story of his fascinating inner journey involves us in a feeling of lightness and it opens the world to the idea that "everything is perfect as it is." You discover the beauty of the universe outside and inside, the existence of the body, and a way of reflecting on the effect of our mind’s beliefs on our choices. Each episode gives us a lesson in humility and wisdom and will leave you amazed to see that the Universe really gives every person the chance to evolve and grow: just follow the opportunities that life presents, without hesitation. Bansō (the Zen name of Vincenzo Pane) has met many special people in his long life because he had the courage to follow an inner voice that led him exactly to where he should be.

True Golden Sand is a collection of collages by Rashani Réa, which she began in 1988, shortly after meeting Thich Nhat Hanh. It also includes dharma songs and a beautiful introduction by Rashani, as well as exquisite forewords by Nel Houtman and Dorothy Hunt and a preface by Joel and Michelle Levy.Thich Nhat Hahn first entered my life in a video of one of his talks. His first smile entered my heart and let me know I was home. How this happens cannot be explained, but I can tell you the essence of his being is here in this book. Because Rashani is so deeply connected with Thay, she can give his words the beauty of his smile and the peace of his presence. Each collage is a moment of recognition, a pause to breathe with him, a seeing of the truth beyond words. The book is itself a living creation of inter-being, much like a flower made possible by everything in the universe. -Gloria Lee, Editor of The Nonduality HighlightsJust as Vietnamese folk songs served as a container of remembered love, sustaining a war ravaged people, Rashani Réa has crafted a container of 108 pages of received wisdom and tribute to one of the world's great exemplars, Thich Nhat Hanh; to remind us of our true nature and to take refuge in this miraculous moment! -Shannon Pernetti, Archetypal Pattern AnalystThis crystalline collection of evocative images and luminous words will give wings to your spirit, and fill your whole being with gladness. -Edie Hartshorne, Musician, Author, Light in Blue ShadowsI first heard Rashani sing her moving songs in Plum Village during the June, 1992 retreat in Plum Village. At that time I also discovered the beautiful cards she created with her collages and Thay's wisdom. Over the 23 years since then my Dharma friends have received the steady stream of Rashani's cards written during subsequent Plum Village retreats. What a joy it is to see Rashani's songs and cards collected in this beautiful book, a loving tribute to Thay, to his teaching, and to life. -Richard Brady, Dharma Teacher and co-editor Tuning In: Mindfulness in Teaching and LearningTo honor the creations of Rashani Reá, I enter the silence between the Master's words. For it is not just Thay's words, but the fertile muddy emptiness between them that her art marvelously embodies, formlessness in formed. Her collages give life to the ancient Tibetan saying, 'Void engenders compassion.' Her richness reminds us that the void is not nothing. It is the embrace that catches us as we fall through the window of her collage. It is the womb, the loam from which the lotus springs, the cipher of infinity, the hollow of a lung engorged with a breath of gratitude, the grief of the heart-wounded soldier, the open mouth of the homeless mother whose child has been taken away. O do not mistake this silence for merely not crying out! The spaciousness of Rashani's collage is the source of creation. Thank you, Thay, for gifting us with a daughter of the Buddha. -Alfred K. LaMotte, Interfaith Chaplain, author of Wounded Bud: Poems for MeditationFor many of us we are so used to words that it is hard to still our minds long enough to allow words to settle into us like seeds slowly nesting into moist soil. How good of Rashani to give us a little help. In this book, she has taken for her text, a distillation of grace from the words of the living Buddhist teacher Thich Nhat Hanh. By placing sometimes only a phrase, sometimes several sentences into a mind-resting collage, she has created a contemporary version of a visual altar. Each image entices you to rest in it. It feels almost like a disservice to turn the page only to find yourself once more allowing your mind to contemplate the juxtaposition of words, colors, forms and shapes. This book is more than a gift; it is a kindness. -James Fadiman, Novelist and researcher

The World of Myth

Hercules, Zeus, Thor, Gilgamesh--these are the figures that leap to mind when we think of myth. But to David Leeming, myths are more than stories of deities and fantastic beings from non-Christian cultures.

Hercules, Zeus, Thor, Gilgamesh--these are the figures that leap to mind when we think of myth. But to David Leeming, myths are more than stories of deities and fantastic beings from non-Christian cultures. Myth is at once the most particular and the most universal feature of civilization, representing common concerns that each society voices in its own idiom. Whether an Egyptian story of creation or the big-bang theory of modern physics, myth is metaphor, mirroring our deepest sense of ourselves in relation to existence itself. Now, in The World of Myth, Leeming provides a sweeping anthology of myths, ranging from ancient Egypt and Greece to the Polynesian islands and modern science. We read stories of great floods from the ancient Babylonians, Hebrews, Chinese, and Mayans; tales of apocalypse from India, the Norse, Christianity, and modern science; myths of the mother goddess from Native American Hopi culture and James Lovelock's Gaia. Leeming has culled myths from Aztec, Greek, African, Australian Aboriginal, Japanese, Moslem, Hittite, Celtic, Chinese, and Persian cultures, offering one of the most wide-ranging collections of what he calls the collective dreams of humanity. More important, he has organized these myths according to a number of themes, comparing and contrasting how various societies have addressed similar concerns, or have told similar stories. In the section on dying gods, for example, both Odin and Jesus sacrifice themselves to renew the world, each dying on a tree. Such traditions, he proposes, may have their roots in societies of the distant past, which would ritually sacrifice their kings to renew the tribe. In The World of Myth, David Leeming takes us on a journey "not through a maze of falsehood but through a marvellous world of metaphor," metaphor for "the story of the relationship between the known and the unknown, both around us and within us." Fantastic, tragic, bizarre, sometimes funny, the myths he presents speak of the most fundamental human experience, a part of what Joseph Campbell called "the wonderful song of the soul's high adventure."

Spanning fifty years and representing traditions from Christianity, Judaism, and Hinduism to Gaia worship and New Age beliefs, this bountiful anthology forms an inclusive map of the spiritual journey and its landmarks. Its twenty-two chapters describe prayer and meditation, the power of myth, the Mother goddess and the Cosmic Christ, the struggle with evil, the gifts of love and grace, and the awe-filled encounter with a divine Other that is intensely personal yet has the capacity to transform the world. God in All Worlds includes the work of some of the great religious thinkers of our century--Krishnamurti, Paul Tillich, Martin Buber, the Dalai Lama, and Mother Teresa. But among its more than one-hundred contributors are also poets (Allen Ginsberg, Maya Angelou), novelists (Flannery O'Connor), activists (Mahatma Gandhi, Vaclav Havel), psychologists (Carl Jung, Abraham Maslow), feminists (Germaine Greer, Robin Morgan), naturalists (Barry Lopez), and physicists (Albert Einstein, Fritjof Capra). The result is a book of dazzling breadth and insight that will inspire, console, enlighten, and renew readers for years to come.
