As Spaniards built colonies in the New World, men of the cloth saw within ancient ruins and inhabited native towns great potential for easing the colonization effort. In the Yucatan, which is the locus of this study, Franciscan friars seized upon the opportunity to “conquer” Maya places for Christianity. Their practice of remaking a Maya town into a Christian town—often building their church on the very foundations of an ancient sacred site—represented the absolute triumph of their religion, the ultimate defeat of the pagan demonic forces by the true faith. This book addresses the Franciscan evangelical campaign of sixteenth-century Yucatan and investigates how Maya conceptions of space, landscape, and history influenced the conversion strategies adopted by the friars. Amara Solari analyzes colonial manuscripts written in Yucatec Mayan to discern how Maya communities conceived of land (and more abstractly, space) and how they encoded space with cultural significance. She demonstrates how these indigenous understandings of space and its history, a locale’s “spatial biography,” made the transference of sacrality possible. Using the Maya city of Itzmal as a case study, Solari examines the process of transferring sacrality and healing abilities from the Maya deity Itzamnaaj to a numinous statue of the Virgin Mary. She also reveals how the hybrid religious ideology that evolved allowed the native Maya population to subvert colonial political and religious programs and maintain community identity in the early years of the colonial period.

Providing a timely contribution to the ongoing questions surrounding topics which are by definition subject to varying stakeholder interpretations, this book addresses “the missing link” between theoretical CSR concepts and everyday management practice. It acts as a guide to awaken managers to the advantages of adopting a CSR “mindset” when developing sustainable business strategies. The book consists of three parts: 1) A theoretical realm which establishes the key concepts and rationale for the adoption of a sustainable CSR approach, 2) A practical realm which addresses putting CSR and sustainability into business practice, 3) An educational realm which proposes how to incorporate the concepts into teaching and training.

Selected Writings On The Awareness Principle

If people get 'lost' in thought or in their emotions, in their work or chores - or in any element of their everyday activity and experience - then they may be 'conscious' but they are not aware. Awareness of the different elements of our conscious action and experience frees us from restricting attachments to them - from a confining identification of ourselves with anything we think, feel or do. This 'Awareness Principle' is both a liberatory life principle and a life practice of a sort long recognised in yogic philosophy. As well as being a healing and freeing life principle and practice, The Awareness Principle is also a new foundational principle for the sciences and religion - offering the sole possible philosophical basis for both a new Theology and a truly scientific 'Theory of Everything'. For the most fundamental scientific fact is not the objective existence of a manifest universe of bodies in space and time but awareness of that universe. In contrast to all current pseudo-scientific attempts to explain awareness or 'consciousness' however, The Awareness Principle is the recognition that awareness cannot - in principle - be explained by or reduced to any thing whatsoever that we are aware of, whether it be matter, energy or the human body and brain. Awareness is neither a by-product of our bodies and brains nor the private property of any being or beings - human or divine. What we call 'God' is neither 'Being' with a big 'B' nor some Supreme Being 'with' awareness. Instead God is awareness - and the entire universe its manifestation. And just as there can be nothing outside space or before time so there can be nothing outside or before the absolute and divine Awareness that is'God'. Neither the Big Bang of physics, the Big Being of philosophy nor a Supreme Being of the sort worshipped in the Abrahamic faiths - all expressions of 'The Being Principle' - can explain the fundamental nature of God and the Universe. The Awareness Principle can, based as it is on the recognition that: "The being of all things that exist in awareness in turn depends on awareness." (Abhinavagupta) Peter Wilberg's writings on 'The Awareness Principle', collected for the first time in this volume, reaffirm and rearticulate in a new and clear cut way a centuries-old understanding of Indian tantric philosophy - namely that the '1st Principle' of the universe is not matter or energy but the innate potentials and power (Shakti) of pure awareness (Shiva).
