The Ecstasy Of Enlightenment

by Thomas Cleary, The Ecstasy Of Enlightenment Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Ecstasy Of Enlightenment books, The Ecstasy of Enlightenment is an inside look at the spiritual world of Tantra--one of the most sophisticated, alluring, and controversial forms of Buddhism. Cleary unlocks the mysteries of the Carya-Giti, a collections of teachings by more than twenty famous Siddhas, or Tantric adepts, who lived during the illustrius Pala dynasty of old Bengal. These teachings emanate from one of the most dynamic sources of international Buddhism, at the height of its religious development, and as such, they are completely nonsectarian. Particularly noteworth is Cleary's demonstration of the parallels between Tantric Buddhism in Old Bengal and the original Zen Buddhism of China.

Ecstasy And Enlightenment

by Ali S. Asani, Ecstasy And Enlightenment Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Ecstasy And Enlightenment books, The devotional literature of the Ismailis in the Indo-Pakistan subcontinent is a rich seam of creativity in the cultural heritage of Islam. This book looks at the "ginans", a large corpus of hymns and poems composed in a variety of Indic languages and attributed to a series of preacher-saints who propagated Ismaili Islam in the subcontinent over several centuries. The work explores the origins of this literature in the larger historical, cultural and religious contexts of the Sufi, Bhakti and Sant movements in medieval India. The characteristics of the "ginans" are explored and the Khojki script in which they were written. There is also a look at the continuing enthusiasm for this poetic tradition in the religious life of contemporary Nizari Ismaili communities of South Asian origin.

The Secrets Of Tantric Buddhism

by , The Secrets Of Tantric Buddhism Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Secrets Of Tantric Buddhism books, Unlocking the secrets of Tantra—one of the most alluring forms of Buddhism Often misunderstood, Tantrism focuses on a particular style of meditation and ritual. Having far more to do with the sacred than the sexual, Tantric Buddhism is believed to have originated around the 5th Century AD in the rich cultural basin of Bengal and spread throughout the Asian world. Today it is widely practiced in Tibet, Japan, and the West. The Secrets of Tantric Buddhism presents accessible translations of 46 classic texts found in the Carya-Giti, a collection of teachings by more than twenty famous Siddhas, or Tantric adepts, who lived during the illustrious Pala dynasty of the 10th and 11th centuries. Renowned translator and scholar Thomas Cleary unlocks the mysteries of these texts and provides commentary for each that explains the ancient teachings in a way that makes them seem fresh and contemporary. These teachings emanate from one of the most dynamic sources of Buddhism, at the height of its religious development. They are completely nonsectarian and will be greeted enthusiastically by those interested in spirituality, world religions, and classic Buddhism.

Enlightened Ecstasy

by Luke Swenson, Enlightened Ecstasy Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Enlightened Ecstasy books, This thesis is meant to explore the biographical and cultural backdrop of Elisa von der Recke's religious writings, especially as it is demonstrated in Geistliche Lieder, Gebete und religiöse Betrachtungen (1833). Eliza von der Recke (1754-1833) was a poet and memoirist during the late Enlightenment era, and her writings demonstrate the religious debates of her time. While many of the philosophers modern students read from the Enlightenment (Kant, Lessing, Mendelssohn) argued that religion should be viewed rationally, this was not the majority opinion, even among intellectuals. As is demonstrated by the popularity of the Freemasons at this time, many thinkers were concerned with anti-rational religious concepts such as mysticism, alchemy, and magic. I argue in my thesis that in Elisa von der Recke's writings we see the tension between the rational and irrational views of religion present at the turn of the 19th century. The loss of loved ones in Recke's early life led her to be sympathetic to concepts such as magic and seeing spirits, but after reading the works of Lessing and other Enlightenment philosophers she became sympathetic to rational religious ideals. In my thesis, I argue that because of negative experiences with a teacher of these mystical ideas of religion, Recke devoted her later religous writings to teaching against irrational religious ideas. Her writings therefore demonstrated the tension between these two ways of thinking, because they are specifically meant to persuade readers towards adopting a rational view of religions.
