by Stephen Jacobs, The Art Of Living Foundation Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Art Of Living Foundation book, The Hindu-derived meditation movement, The Art of Living (AOL), founded in 1981 by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar in Bangalore, has grown into a global organization which claims presence in more than 150 countries. Stephen Jacobs presents the first comprehensive study of AOL as an important transnational movement and an alternative global spirituality. Exploring the nature and characteristics of spirituality in the contemporary global context, Jacobs considers whether alternative spiritualities are primarily concerned with individual wellbeing and can simply be regarded as another consumer product. The book concludes that involvement in movements such as AOL is not necessarily narcissistic but can foster a sense of community and inspire altruistic activity.

by Swami Nikhilananda, The Art Of Forgiveness Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Art Of Forgiveness book, THE ART OF FORGIVENESS The first step towards forgiveness is to understand the negativities that are created by non-forgiveness, and to become aware of the futility and irrationality of nursing grudges. It is crucial to take a decision to forgive, because it is only then that the whole process of unravelling begins. Forgiveness is not an action or emotion, it is something deeper. It is a state of being. When forgiveness happens there is no need to say anything. It is a state where there remains no sense of revenge. SWAMI NIKHILANANDA In this enlightening booklet, Swami Nikhilananda, in his beautiful words, discusses the law of karma and the demerits of non-forgiveness. He goes on to explain how understanding the need to forgive is not enough, and elaborates on the steps one can take towards forgiveness.

by Sugata Ray, Climate Change And The Art Of Devotion Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Climate Change And The Art Of Devotion book, In the enchanted world of Braj, the primary pilgrimage center in north India for worshippers of Krishna, each stone, river, and tree is considered sacred. In Climate Change and the Art of Devotion, Sugata Ray shows how this place-centered theology emerged in the wake of the Little Ice Age (ca. 1550–1850), an epoch marked by climatic catastrophes across the globe. Using the frame of geoaesthetics, he compares early modern conceptions of the environment and current assumptions about nature and culture. A groundbreaking contribution to the emerging field of eco–art history, the book examines architecture, paintings, photography, and prints created in Braj alongside theological treatises and devotional poetry to foreground seepages between the natural ecosystem and cultural production. The paintings of deified rivers, temples that emulate fragrant groves, and talismanic bleeding rocks that Ray discusses will captivate readers interested in environmental humanities and South Asian art history.
