The counterintuitive, radical message of Vedanta, the ancient science of self-inquiry, is that reality is non-dual consciousness. What this means and how it benefits people in their quest for freedom from limitation is the subject of this inspirational book. In an accessible style, James Swartz's new book develops teachings introduced in his popular first one, How to Attain Enlightenment, covering topics such as values and the enlightened person, dharma and the essence of enlightenment, and the relationship between consciousness, the individual, and the total. Demystifying enlightenment, Swartz makes Vedanta understandable to all.

Encouraged by Eckhart Tolle, Awake Joy is a unique and comprehensive guide to awakening and enlightenment. It points to the radiant joy that is beyond the thinking mind, the separate sense of self, its idea of separation and identification with form. Katie Davis takes the mind-identified reader through their personal growth strategies to awakening. She then deepens to Self-discovery or what we might call the realization of the Heart. The book then shifts to conscious living by embracing humanity's diversity and the earth as none other than the Essence. The journey requires presence, not practices, although the book offers experiments and meditations to free the ego. This book is designed to be your companion throughout your life's journey to true and lasting fulfillment. It will be a trusted resource again and again. This A-Z handbook stands free of concepts and points pragmatically for those who are ready to surrender suffering for themselves, their families, the schools and the world

Enlightenment simply is finding the truth of existence and that includes you as you are not separate from existence. One may ask why should one bother about the truth of existence. Answer is by touching the truth of existence one achieves the highest freedom available in the universe. And ultimate freedom leads to unbounded happiness. As happiness is the driving force behind all human pursuits, one may as well go for the quintessential gold of enlightenment rather than the pursuits of the typical worldly life which though may provide some happiness here and there for some time, inevitably leave one high and dry constantly searching for the next object or relationship in the hope that somehow they can provide the answers one is looking for only to be satisfied for a period of time before starting on the next seeking. There is so much confusion as to what constitutes enlightenment with many cultures expressing the concepts in a variety of ways leaving humanity searching for meaning of existence for pretty much all their lives. I present material of this book precisely, without beating around the bush in a no nonsensical manner. I give only necessary explanation and reasoning so as not to put the reader to sleep. One may come across some Sanskrit and Vedic terminology in the book in some sections. I have taken a cautious approach not to overwhelm the reader with any unnecessary burden of learning some other language or culture to grasp the necessary concepts. So, I kept such terminology to the minimum to avoid being distracted and only presented them to the absolute minimum level in a proper context. My view is that the truth is beyond language, belief system and cultural practices. One should have equal access and appreciation for the truth in English just as one has in Sanskrit or any other language. So, even if I presented few terms of Sanskrit and Vedic lineage, I made sure that English is the medium of presentation throughout without any loss of details. My hope is that after completing this book, the reader is fully equipped to lead an empowered life by understanding the big picture of life within the framework of enlightenment. I presented the complex topics of spirituality in simple terms so it's easily understood and put into practice in the material world as spirituality that doesn't bring practical value to life is of little use.

Major World Religions

This work seeks to answer questions about the great religious traditions in the contemporary age. It focuses upon those religions that continue to demand the attention of the Western world. Following an introduction on the philosophy of religion, attention is focused on Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam which are religions that have had (and probably continue to have) the greatest number of followers in Western society. In addition to the lasting impact that religion has had in society, we are witnesses to the development of secularism on the one hand and the revival of religious sentiment on the other, thus chapters on modernity, postmodernism, and 'fundamentalism' have also been included. The distinctive feature of the book is its modern feel. Each chapter brings the reader up-to-date with recent developments and commentaries upon recent religious thought, theology and religious-political movements. Moreover, the length of the chapters permits a detailed analysis which is so often lacking in books on world religions.

Enlightenment

For generations the traditional focus for those wishing to understand the roots of the modern world has been France on the eve of the Revolution. Porter certainly acknowledges France's importance, but here makes an overwhelming case for consideringBritain the true home of modernity - a country driven by an exuberance, diversity and power of invention comparable only to twentieth-century America. Porter immerses the reader in a society which, recovering from the horrors of the Civil War and decisively reinvigorated by the revolution of 1688, had emerged as something new and extraordinary - a society unlike any other in the world.

Prose Poems Of The French Enlightenment

Tracing the prehistory of the French prose poem, Fabienne Moore demonstrates that the genre emerges nearly a century before it is generally supposed to have existed. Moore links the development of this new genre with the period's thinking about language and poetic invention, as she argues that scientific, philosophical, and socioeconomic upheavals prompted a paradoxical return during the Enlightenment to sources such as Homer, the pastoral, Ossian, the Bible, and primitive eloquence.
