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.

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.

Portraits Of Tibetan Buddhist Masters

by Don Farber, Portraits Of Tibetan Buddhist Masters Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Portraits Of Tibetan Buddhist Masters books, Renowned photographer Don Farber, one of the most important chroniclers of Buddhism today, brings the face and the spirit of contemporary Tibetan Buddhism alive with this remarkable book. Portraits of Tibetan Buddhist Masters―a collection of superb color photographs presented with brief biographies and teachings from each master―is a vibrant work, a testament to the compassion and wisdom that lies at the heart of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. Farber felt compelled to record the last of the living Buddhist masters who received their training in Tibet and then fled the country following the invasion by China, as well as other masters who survived many years of imprisonment during the Cultural Revolution. He has worked with a sense of urgency to photograph and interview these extraordinary beings who have been the custodians of this endangered Buddhist tradition. His collection of portraits also includes some of the bright lights of Tibetan Buddhism, the younger masters who will carry the tradition into the future. As a photographic archive of Tibetan Buddhist masters, this book plays an important role in preserving Tibetan culture, in all its richness and complexity, through the words and faces of its esteemed masters.
