In The Fourteen Dalai Lamas, author Glenn H. Mullin vividly brings to life the myth and succession of all 14 Dalai Lamas in one volume for the first time. The book contains a chapter on each Dalai Lama (except Dalai Lamas 9-12, who are covered in one chapter). Each chapter opening features an illustration of the Dalai Lama who is the subject of that chapter. Mullin has also included characteristic excerpts from the Dalai Lamas' teachings, poetry, and other writings that illuminate the principles of Tibetan Buddhism expressed in their lives.The 14th Dalai Lama, spiritual and temporal leader of the Tibetans in exile, is well-known, but the 600-year tradition to which he is heir is less familiar. From the birth of the first Dalai Lama in a cowshed in 1391, each subsequent Dalai Lama has been the reincarnation of his predecessor, choosing to take up the burdens of a human life for the benefit of the Tibetan people. For almost six centuries, the Dalai Lamas have served as the Tibetans' spiritual leader and have held secular power for almost half that time. All the Dalai Lamas are revered as incarnations of Avalokiteshvara, the Buddhist deity of compassion, but each has been a unique individual with different abilities and temperaments. Over the ages, various Dalai Lamas have been poets, statesmen, builders, philosophers; most have been disciplined monastics, but one was a lover of women. The potential of some was tragically lost when their lives were cut short, possibly the victims of political intrigue, while others lived long enough to shape entire eras of Tibetan history.

This book can be downloaded as a PDF file from here. Prologue This is not a guide-book for studying any occult art. Instead it is a writing that proposes to take up the possibility of there being a real machinery behind the working of so-called mantra, tantra, evil eye, black magic, voodoo etc. This book does not teach any of the above mentioned arts. Yet, it does try to find a pathway or opening by which we can find or enter the supernatural arena from where the supernatural software codes of reality and life is designed and maintained. It is a writing that tries to discuss a probability that is not connected to material sciences. Instead it proposes to examine the possibility of there being a supernatural software application location wherein reality might be seen in the code view as-well-as the design view. These two views are apart from the real view, which is the physical reality. The ultimate aim of this book is to propose a pathway via which we can approach the supernatural software location, where all of reality, life, living organisms, brain software &c. are designed and maintained. This book is not a sudden writing on any impulse of the moment. I wrote my first book on codes in languages, March of the Evil Empires; English versus the feudal languages, around 1989. The final version of the book was completed around 2000. In the concluding part of that book, I did hint about the possibility of there being something akin to a software background to reality. And that languages are software applications with varied capacities. In around the year 2005, I wrote a series of posts in a GB website on the same subject. It was basically a lot of unconnected themes all pointing to the same theme. This I later published as a digital book under the name: Software codes of reality, life and languages. Then my next major book on the subject came out with the name: Codes of reality! What is language? Here again the same theme of connecting the idea of there being a software realm behind reality and that languages have software codes which can directly connect to the software of reality was elaborated. The focus was on languages being sort of software applications through which physical reality could be influenced. Still, the theme was going forward only in very brief paces. A few years ago, I had to write a series of posts for supporting the contentions of Homoeopathy, by basing the ideas from my understandings. That Homoeopathy does work on the principle of a software program rectifying the software of life and human body. The book title was: The machinery of Homœopathy! Recently I happened to read Edgar Thurston’s Omens and Superstitions of Southern India. It was at that time that I pondered upon reworking out the arguments from the perspective of mantra, tantra, black magic, witchcraft etc. The first thing I did was to create a very readable form of that book. As I went on doing that work, I could get to read the book also. This present book is being promoted as a Commentary on Omens and Superstitions of Southern India. However, only the last part of this book really is a sort of commentary. Even in that part, it is not exactly a commentary. I merely quoted some sentences from his book and elaborated upon them as per what I wanted to convey. Edgar Thurston’s Omens and Superstitions of Southern India is definitely a great book. My writings do not aim to go against that book. This book of mine does contain a lot of mentions about Thurston’s book. This book commences by mentioning OMENS AND SUPERSTITIONS OF SOUTHERN INDIA. However, it moves beyond to a wider ambit. It returns to Thurston’s book at the end as a commentary. However, a mention of Thurston’s book can be felt all along. I have used a few images from other old public domain books. These images are mainly taken from my own collection from such books. Due to some issues, I do not have the exact record as to where I got some of the images. I believe that such images have been taken from Edgar Thurston’s Castes and Tribes of Southern India. Before commencing the reading of the book, the reader is further informed that in various locations, the text would seem to be dealing with cultural aspects. However, without clearly mentioning these things, it would difficult to go directly into the effects of supernatural software codes. DEVERKOVIL September 10th 2016

Now that his wife is dead, retired television news anchor, David Cross, believes that he is more himself than he has been for forty years. When Nancy was alive, he had secrets that he kept from her. Now he has a secret that he must keep from his children, Ed and Lucy, namely that he is in some ways happier now than he was when their mother was alive. To Heaven by Water is a touching and hilarious portrait of the Cross family, trying in their own fashion to come to terms with their loss. David knows that his children are perplexed by his increasingly compulsive behaviour while Ed's marriage to the lovely Rosalie, a former ballet dancer, is suffering strain, and Lucy is being stalked by her ex-boyfriend. Both children worry that their father will soon find a new partner. Over all three of them hangs the memory of Nancy. The book opens as David is taking time out with his brother in the Kalahari Desert, re-living his tumultuous and uplifting memories of Rome where he worked on a film with Richard Burton. Back home in London, Ed is trying to balance his affair with a young woman in his office with his real love for his wife, who is unable to conceive the child she longs for. And Lucy, who has just been voted No. 6 in the Evening News section devoted to beautiful and brainy women, is a young woman in pursuit of her real self. To Heaven by Water is a wonderful story of friendship, forgiveness and of love that comes from unexpected directions; it is an exploration of what we might hope for from this life and. in particular. the possibility of transcendence. Into the beautifully observed and subtly composed texture of this tale of middle-class London life, Justin Cartwright weaves sudden shocks that tear it apart, moments of sex and revenge that appear from a cloudless sky to take the reader's breath away.
