The Hidden History of the Tibetan Book of the Dead

In 1927, Oxford University Press published the first western-language translation of a collection of Tibetan funerary texts (the Great Liberation upon Hearing in the Bardo) under the title The Tibetan Book of the Dead. Since that time, the work has established a powerful hold on the western popular imagination, and is now considered a classic of spiritual literature. Over the years, The Tibetan Book of the Dead has inspired numerous commentaries, an illustrated edition, a play, a video series, and even an opera. Translators, scholars, and popular devotees of the book have claimed to explain its esoteric ideas and reveal its hidden meaning. Few, however, have uttered a word about its history. Bryan J. Cuevas seeks to fill this gap in our knowledge by offering the first comprehensive historical study of the Great Liberation upon Hearing in the Bardo, and by grounding it firmly in the context of Tibetan history and culture. He begins by discussing the many ways the texts have been understood (and misunderstood) by westerners, beginning with its first editor, the Oxford-educated anthropologist Walter Y. Evans-Wentz, and continuing through the present day. The remarkable fame of the book in the west, Cuevas argues, is strikingly disproportionate to how the original Tibetan texts were perceived in their own country. Cuevas tells the story of how The Tibetan Book of the Dead was compiled in Tibet, of the lives of those who preserved and transmitted it, and explores the history of the rituals through which the life of the dead is imagined in Tibetan society. This book provides not only a fascinating look at a popular and enduring spiritual work, but also a much-needed corrective to the proliferation of ahistorical scholarship surrounding The Tibetan Book of the Dead.

The Mayan Indians of the Yucatan Peninsula, through a very complicated process, were able to study the sun by monitoring the planet Venus. This formed the basis for their complex calendarical system, which stretches over thousands of years. They discovered the way the sun rotates creates sunspots. After twenty sunspot cycles, which occurred approximately every thirty seven hundred years, the sun ́s rotational orbit would change, causing the Earth to turn on it ́s axis. This is due to occur again on December 22, 2012. On this day, the world as we know it will end. Austin Green, a forty year old theoretical physicist, and his nineteen year old son, Zeo, barely escape from Los Angeles before a third massive earthquake cracks the North American plate, and the entire west coast sinks into the ocean in a matter of minutes. Now in the year is 2011, they ́re struggling to re-build a society in the coastal city of Phoenix, Arizona, with others who ́ve survived the precursors to the pole shift--a long string of natural disasters that had been plaguing the Earth since 2009. The United States economy has fallen, making money worth nothing. The barter system is used for everything, and horses and bicycles are again common modes of transportation. Austin, once a well recognized physics professor and researcher at the California Institute of Technology, still harbors the slight hope that there will again come a time when our scientific technology will be applied to real life. Now, while everyone awaits the outcome of the final pole shift, he teaches cutting edge physics to a small class of students of various ages--the future parents of the root race of humans that will hopefully re-build society. But, Austin is restless. He can ́t believe what has become of the planet, and the humans who once ruled it. He has to know what the future holds. Does the music play forever? Will all life on Earth end before the middle of the twenty first century, thus destroying everything mankind has ever discovered since the beginning of time as we know it? Or have we learned from our past mistakes? Will we build a future society more in tune with nature? Or will greed cause us to make the same mistakes over again? Combining Austin ́s expertise in hyperspace manipulation, and Zeo ́s deep seeded, new age intuition, they devise an elaborate plan utilizing a home made proton accelerator, the energy vortexes in Sedona Arizona, a quartz crystal, and the energy generated on the day of the winter solstice, when the sun changes it ́s rotation, to construct a worm hole two hundred years into the future and escape just seconds before the Earth turns on it ́s axis. "Does the Music Play Forever?" is a story of one man ́s discovery of, not only his true nature, but also the true nature of the universe and mankind ́s innate connection to it. It is the ultimate example of the law of cause and effect, and the interconnectedness of everything in the universe..

• Discover what you truly want. If you establish your will firmly, all creations of the Universe wrap supporting energy around you. Therefore, you will gain power. If you don’t gain power, that is because your goal is not clear. • Evolution basically means “knowing”. It is to know about yourself, about God, about nature as well as about birth-aging-illness-death. Once you realize these, once you know the direction which the Universe is headed for, you will then evolve. • Why did the Creator make human beings to be imperfect? Why did He make human beings like this and have them feel pain, grief and sorrow? How did He make human beings and how much did He involve Himself? • The purpose of the Universe’s creation is evolution, and the Earth is the planet which was created as a training center. The purpose of human beings born on this planet is only evolution through experience. Likewise, if you can become well-aware that the Earth is a school and that people are born to learn lessons, you will be pleased by all the affairs happening to you because they are teaching materials that make you profound by presenting you with experiences.

Armed with a map and a motorcycle, Mark Stephen Meadows ventures to Sri Lanka’s war zone to interview terrorists, generals, and heroin dealers on their own terms. He seeks only to understand the conflict and witness the civil war’s effects on the country. As he travels north through Colombo, Kandy, and the damaged city of Jaffna, Meadows discovers an island of beauty and abundance ground down by three decades of war. He is invited into an ancient culture where he learns to trap an elephant, weave rope from coconut husks, cast out devils, and even have afternoon tea with terrorists. Meadow’s story and take on the war focuses on the interconnectedness of globalization, the media, and modern terrorism in what Greg Mortenson, author of Three Cups of Tea, calls “an excellent undertaking.”

Building on recent engagements with Barth in the area of theologies of religion, Karl Barth and Comparative Theology inaugurates a new conversation between Barth’s theology and comparative theology. Each essay brings Barth into conversation with theological claims from other religious traditions for the purpose of modeling deep learning across religious borders from a Barthian perspective. For each tradition, two Barth-influenced theologians offer focused engagements of Barth with the tradition’s respective themes and figures, and a response from a theologian from that tradition then follows. With these surprising and stirringly creative exchanges, Karl Barth and Comparative Theology promises to open up new trajectories for comparative theology. Contributors: Chris Boesel, Francis X.

Tommy Shakes is a career criminal, and not a very good one. He earned his name as a heroin addict. Now he’s just a drunk, drinking so much that he spends much of his time in bathrooms, exploding from one end or the other. He’s in a marriage he wants to salvage. He convinces himself that his wife, Carla, will allow him to stay with her and their teenage son, Malik, if he can bring home enough money. She tells him that won’t do it, he needs to quit crime altogether, but Tommy gets a crack at a big heist and decides to pull the job. The job is ripping off a popular restaurant that runs an illegal sports book in back. A lot of money gets paid out on football Sundays; the plan is to pull the robbery on Saturday night. The back room has armed guards but, according to Smallwood, Tommy’s contact on the job, there’s no gang protection. Tommy recons the job and finds two problems: Smallwood’s plan will get them all killed or up on murder one, and one security guy works for a local gangster, Joey Lee. Tommy’s desperate for money and figures he can make his own plan. As to the gangster, there’s enough money that it’s worth the risk. They pull the robbery but one gang member gets gun happy and it turns into a bloodbath, which includes killing Lee’s man. Now they’re wanted for murder, and the law is the least of their problems. Praise for TOMMY SHAKES: “With his pitch-perfect ear for dialogue, his knack for crisp pacing, and his unerring eye for what might be called the milieu of functional dissolution, Rob Pierce has revealed himself in story after story as a poet of the luckless, the bard of the misbegotten. In the hero of his latest and best, Tommy Shakes, he has found his Frankie Machine.” —David Corbett, award-winning author of The Long-Lost Love Letters of Doc Holliday “Tight as a drum, vicious as a pitbull. I don’t remember the last time I read something that scratched the scuzzy itch of noir as well as Tommy Shakes. Just, maybe don’t read it with a full stomach.” —Rob Hart, author of the Ash McKenna series “When you pick up Tommy Shakes, make sure you have nothing to do, because you’re not going to want to put this one down. Rob Pierce at the tip-top of his game. Watch out, y’all.” —Eryk Pruitt, author of What We Reckon “When I was in rehab, a psyche ward in Boston, I read the book Crime Novels: American Noir of the ’50s. Willeford, Goodis, Thompson, Highsmith, and Himes. Had it all. Wretchedness, duplicity, alcoholism, and hopelessness. Tommy Shakes by Rob Pierce would’ve slotted in there perfectly. Nobody does grim and grave better.” —Joe Clifford, author of Junkie Love and the Jay Porter Thriller Series “Rob Pierce writes the downtrodden like Rodin casts bronze, and Tommy Shakes is his masterpiece.” —Benjamin Whitmer, author of Cry Father and Pike “If you like the kind of noir that makes you want to break out the hand sanitizer, Rob Pierce is the King—and the King does not disappoint with Tommy Shakes. Hard and mean and in your face like noir ought to be.” —Todd Robinson, author of The Hard Bounce and Rough Trade “Pure noir prose. Dark, disturbing, devastating. A journey through Pierce’s Oakland is a hellish thrill-ride. Or thrilling hell-ride.” —Tom Pitts, author of 101 and American Static “Tommy can’t get a break, but it’s not like he’s out to give himself one. This book is as relentless as it is bleak, yet oddly inspiring. You won’t just root for an underdog, you’ll root for collapse!” —Nick Mamatas, author of I Am Sabbath and Providence

The master is also the greatest disciple. The followed is the biggest follower. And in his humility lie the greatest lessons of life. The first thing that strikes the author about Dada Vawasni is his extraordinary humility and how his laughter reaches his sparkling eyes—the signs of a great master and yet a reluctant one at that. Their conversations are light, fun and full of cheer and yet, within them there is the depth and wisdom of life and beyond. What is prayer? What are the duties of a householder? What is the life of surrender... Their talks range from the concept karma to the role of the guru; from leading a spiritual life to the light of God. And within these questions and conversations are answers to the many spiritual questions that a seeker might have. Conversations with Dada Vaswani is a spiritual biography and a journey; it is also dialogue between the Sage and the seeker...
