As Eckhart Tolle has written, poetry "has been recognized since ancient times as a highly appropriate medium for the expression and transmission of spiritual truth." The Clear Light is Steve Taylor's latest contribution to this poetic tradition, offering short and powerful reflections as a guide to spiritual awakening and as experiential glimpses of the state of enlightenment itself. Taylor ranges widely, through subjects including "Making the Human Race Whole," "Freedom from the Past," and "The Reality of Connection," always in clear and simple language. Best of all, he reminds us of the choices we always have when life feels chaotic and overwhelming: empathy, acceptance, and love. Soothing but also challenging, Taylor's words continually affirm the profound bedrock of peace and even joy in the present that is always available. The book's eponymous reflection says it best: There is nothing that can't be undone no past injury that can't be healed no past mistake that can't be corrected in the clear light of the present. Reading this book is a transformational spiritual experience in itself.

Recently ordained and more recently divorced, Reverend Esme Browne finds herself at an uncomfortable crossroads when stationed at the Portland Road Chapel. In addition to the seaside town, she also now bears the spiritual responsibility for two country chapels, which should be exciting, invigorating, and even hopeful. Esme, however, has forgotten how to pray and, she fears, how to feel. A chance encounter with an eccentric pair of country gnostics may change all that, but she'll have to be willing to juggle the demands of the church, her parishes, and a bevy of well-intended but nosy neighbors.

The Mysteries of Clear Light, "The Emerging Identity" is the second trilogy in an open-ended series. Consider this: what if everything you have ever been told about Spirit were incorrect; that in fact there is no attainment to reach for, no enlightenment to strive towards? What if, in your pursuit of Spiritual Truths, in your zest to embody some mystical ideals, you have lost the very path humanity was meant to follow? At the heart of timelessness lies the wellspring from which true individuality derives. You are eternally in process of "becoming", you are forever "under construction"; there are no established standards on which to base your earthly life. Each of you is a Cosmos in miniature whose course cannot be determined by human standards. The very fact of seeking is an acknowledgment of lack, whereas just being as you are is a celebration of existence itself.. We the authors are not anything you cannot be. Neither prophets nor gurus, we simply relate the story we came to tell. Clearly written, never didactic, at times irreverent and funny, eternal yet new, the knowledge we share reflects the timeless love of the Entities who bring you this wisdom and gently remind you, the reader, of your true identity. We do not teach, for in truth there is nothing to learn. The realizations and conclusions you reach are your own; we merely present you with a different viewpoint and show you alternatives. Your immortal spirit will help you make your optimal choices and direct you toward the purpose for which you incarnated. Your reward is not the enlightenment you have always had; it is the freedom to make full use of the powers within you.

The Mysteries of Clear Light, A Timeless Legacy, is the first of an open-ended series, which speaks to you in the words of the Great Beings that have always watched over the development of the Human race. Their communication cuts through the misinformation that accumulated throughout ages of ignorance and self-interest and helps our species adapt to the vital role it has to play in these stressful times of changes. The always-unfolding story encompasses all periods, passed, current and future; its message is one of hope and reconciliation. The style, at times, reflects the character of the Being who dictated a given chapter but invariably and effortlessly builds upon itself and gently reminds the reader of all that our spirit has always known. We do not teach, for in truth there is nothing to learn. The realizations to which you awaken are your own, we merely show you alternatives. Your immortal spirit will assist you in making the best choices for you and help you fulfill the purpose for which you incarnated. Your reward is not enlightenment; you already have that within you; rather it is the freedom to make use of the power you have always had.

"Everyone dies, but no one is dead," goes the Tibetan saying. It is with these words that Advice on Dying takes flight. Using a seventeenth-century poem written by a prominent scholar-practitioner, His Holiness the Dalai Lama draws from a wide range of traditions and beliefs to explore the stages we all go through when we die, which are the very same stages we experience in life when we go to sleep, faint, or reach orgasm (Shakespeare's "little death"). The stages are described so vividly that we can imagine the process of traveling deeper into the mind, on the ultimate journey of transformation. In this way, His Holiness shows us how to prepare for that time and, in doing so, how to enrich our time on earth, die without fear or upset, and influence the stage between this life and the next so that we may gain the best possible incarnation. As always, the ultimate goal is to advance along the path to enlightenment. Advice on Dying is an essential tool for attaining that eternal bliss.

Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize: A “rich, Chekhovian novel” about family and forgiveness from the acclaimed author of Fire on the Mountain (The New Yorker). At the heart of this “wonderful” novel are the moving relationships between the estranged members of the Das family (The Washington Post Book World). Bimla is a dissatisfied but ambitious teacher at a women’s college who lives in her childhood home, where she cares for her mentally challenged brother, Baba. Tara is her younger, unambitious sister, married and with children of her own. Raja is their popular, brilliant, and successful brother. When Tara returns for a visit with Bimla and Baba, old memories and tensions resurface, blending into a domestic drama that leads to beautiful and profound moments of self-understanding. Set in the vividly portrayed environs of Old Delhi, “Clear Light of Day does what only the very best novels can do: it totally submerges us. It also takes us so deeply into another world that we almost fear we won’t be able to climb out again” (The New York Times Book Review). “Passages must be read and reread so that you savor their imagery, their language, and their wisdom.” —The Washington Post Book World “[A] thoroughly universal tale of unhealable family hurts . . . Distinctively shaded with enticing glimpses of India’s Hindu middle-class in shabby decline.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

Tantric traditions in both Buddhism and Hinduism are thriving throughout Asia and in Asian diasporic communities around the world, yet they have been largely ignored by Western scholars until now. This collection of original essays fills this gap by examining the ways in which Tantric Buddhist traditions have changed over time and distance as they have spread across cultural boundaries in Asia. The book is divided into three sections dedicated to South Asia, Central Asia, and East Asia. The essays cover such topics as the changing ideal of masculinity in Buddhist literature, the controversy triggered by the transmission of the Indian Buddhist deity Heruka to Tibet in the 10th century, and the evolution of a Chinese Buddhist Tantric tradition in the form of the True Buddha School. The book as a whole addresses complex and contested categories in the field of religious studies, including the concept of syncretism and the various ways that the change and transformation of religious traditions can be described and articulated. The authors, leading scholars in Tantric studies, draw on a wide array of methodologies from the fields of history, anthropology, art history, and sociology. Tantric Traditions in Transmission and Translation is groundbreaking in its attempt to look past religious, linguistic, and cultural boundaries.

In this ground-breaking work, Tibetan Buddhist scholar Jeffrey Hopkins has adapted Tibetan philosopher Gedun Chopel's heterosexual sex manual Tibetan Arts of Love as a gay sex guide. Interweaving ecstatic poetry and prose, Hopkins shows how sexual passion can open the door to spiritual growth. Hopkins argues that orgasm itself can bring lovers to a powerful level of consciousness. Beautifully written, the techniques show that pinching, scratching, union from the rear, switching roles, thrill cries, and oral sex all have an impact on erotic life. Hopkins concludes with four "ruminations" on the sex-friendly nature of Tibetan Buddhism.
