The Rocks Of Hampi In The Poem Of That Title Are An Extension Of The Fiend Of The Folktales; They Are Frozen Memories, Amorphous Archetypes Of A Lost World Of Primal Experience, The Thirst Of The Scorching Sun: The Buffaloes That Cannot Swim, The Flames Of ShivaýS Third Eye, Tales Waiting To Bloom, Ahalya Waiting For Emancipation, Yet Unable To Become The Powerful Phallus Or Event A Limb Of Shiva. The Rocks Want To Converse With The World, To Make Friends With The Mother And The Baby, Ignite Memories Thus Anamnesing The World Obivious Of Its Past, Or Inspire Revenge. They Also Symbolise The Fantasy Of Untamed Freedom: They Are Naked Wild Horses Waiting To Gallop Away To The Horizon. The Inversion Works Here Filling The Non-Living Rocks With Life, Turning Memories Into Dreams And Making The Silence Speak. The Rocks Belong To The World Of The Fiend Of He Folktale And To That Of Myth And Like The Fiend Framed And Kept In A Museum, The Rocks Are Frozen Dreams Of Liberation Now Under The Tourist Gace.

In the summer of 1978, Musa al Sadr, the spiritual leader of the Muslim Shia sect in Lebanon, disappeared mysteriously while on a visit to Libya. As in the Shia myth of the "Hidden Imam," this modern-day Imam left his followers upholding his legacy and awaiting his return. Considered an outsider when he had arrived in Lebanon in 1959 from his native Iran, he gradually assumed the role of charismatic mullah, and was instrumental in transforming the Shia, a quiescent and downtrodden Islamic minority, into committed political activists. What sort of person was Musa al Sadr? What beliefs in the Shia doctrine did his life embody? Where did he fit into the tangle of Lebanon's warring factions? What was behind his disappearance? In this fascinating and compelling narrative, Fouad Ajami resurrects the Shia's neglected history, both distant and recent, and interweaves the life and work of Musa al Sadr with the larger strands of the Shia past.

A re-issue of the 1926 classic by James Churchward, The Lost Continent of Mu: Motherland of Men supplemented with fresh research and new material by the author's great-grandson. In the 1920s, James Churchward wrote a series of groundbreaking books about the lost continent of Lemuria which he called the land of Mu. The basic premises are these: • The Garden of Eden was not in Asia, but on a sunken continent in the Pacific Ocean. • The Biblical story of creation came not from the peoples of the Nile, but from this now submerged continent of Mu—the Motherland of Men. • Mu was an advanced civilization of 64 million inhabitants… He obtained the information by living with monks and translating unknown manuscripts. Over the years, his books have come to be considered occult classics. Now his great-grandson, Jack Churchward, has resurrected this valuable work and added his own research. Included: · The Lost Continent · The Land of Man’s Advent on Earth · Egyptian Sacred Volume, Book of the Dead · Symbols of Mu · North American’s Place Among the Ancient Civilizations · The Geological History of Mu · Ancient Religious Conceptions · Ancient Sacred Mysteries, Rites and Ceremonies

In Search Of Kazakhstan

Author : Christopher Robbins
ISBN : 9781847653567
Genre : Travel
File Size : 29.28 MB

The only thing most people know about Kazakhstan is that it is homeland to Borat - and he isn't even real. Actually this vast place - the last unknown inhabited country in the world - is far more surprising and entertaining. For one thing, it is as varied as Europe, combining stupendous wealth, grinding poverty, exotic traditions and a mad dash for modernity. Crisscrossing a vanished land, Christopher Robbins finds Eminem by a shrinking Aral Sea, goes eagle-hunting, visits the scene of Dostoyevsky's doomed first love, takes up residence beside one-time neighbour Leon Trotsky and visits some of the most beautiful, unspoilt places on earth.
