Leszek Kolakowski discusses, in a highly original way, the arguments for and against the existence of God as they have been conducted through the ages. He examines the critiques of religious belief, from the Epicureans through Nietzsche to contemporary anthropological inquiry, the assumptions that underlie them, and the counter-arguments of such apologists as Descartes, Leibniz, and Pascal. His exploration of the philosophy of religion covers the historical discussions of the nature and existence of evil, the importance of the concepts of failure and eternity to the religious impulse, the relationship between skepticism and mysticism, and the place of reason, understanding, and in models of religious thought. He examines why people, throughout known history, have cherished the idea of eternity and existence after death, and why this hope has been dependent on the worship of an eternal reality. He confronts the problems of meaning in religious language.

12-century saint-poet Allama Prabhu, along with Basavanna and Akka Mahadevi, was a founder of the Virashaiva or Lingayat movement in Karnataka. During a period of intense religious ferment, these Sharanas--protégés of Shiva--aimed to dismantle religious hierarchy and bigotry. They rebelled against exploitation based on class, caste and gender through their vachanas, which were ahead of their times. Today, the Lingayats regard these vachanas as their sacred literature. The vachanas of Allama Prabhu are rooted firmly in the idea of experiential reality. From gazing at Shiva from a distance, to uniting with Him, to declaring He doesn't exist and to finally realizing that He exists in a dynamic void--these poems represent Allama's quest for Shiva. They are passionate and filled with yearning; critical and brazen. Translated with great skill and fluidity by Manu Devadevan, God Is Dead, There Is No God is a treat for modern-day seekers as well as poetry lovers.

Instead of entering into a pointless debate on whether or not God exists, it is more important to bear in mind that belief in the existence of God has little bearing on making a person a good or a bad citizen. One can be a saintly person without believing in God and a detestable villain believing in Him. In my personalized religion, there is NO GOD! Khushwant Singh, over the decades, has built up a reputation for coming up with something new and controversial in each book, and he does not disappoint his readers this time too. He begins with a chapter on the ‘need for a new religion – without God’, in which he questions the relevance of God. He then moves on to describe how religion has proved to be more harmful than beneficial and, in the process, debunks astrologers and the breed of so-called ‘godmen’. However, he is not dismissive of religion. Through his lucid writing, he brings out the beauty and significance of holy books such as the Bhagvad Gita, the Quran and the Granth Sahib. He provides relevant extracts to highlight the poetry and the music in such books. The author next tries to dispel the prejudices held by many non-Muslims against their Muslim compatriots by giving down-to-earth examples. He also emphasizes the importance of the Ramzaan fast. Khushwant Singh’s description of the life and times of Guru Nanak and Guru Gobind Singh and his in-depth analysis of the Granth Sahib throw new light on a particularly troubled period in India’s history. The chapter devoted to the interaction of the author (a confirmed agnostic) with the Dalai Lama (probably the world’s most renowned spiritual leader) makes for fascinating reading. Here’s one book containing a wealth of knowledge and information that you would want to read or consult again and again.

And after you have finished the purging, the killing, the dying, you will see that all

Oneself is very well hidden and one keeps looking for it while all the time you have it. By looking for it, you are denying it. This book is to show one, that all that they are looking for, they already have. They are looking for happiness in what they project. As Omar Khayyam said, it is all a magic lantern show. As I say, it's like a merry-go-round, what goes up must come down and there is in reality no up or down, no in or out, no love lost. You cannot gain love or lose love; love is life itself. All man’s suffering is looking for what he has and resisting what he cannot have. There is no God, Good, and.

God Versus Creator

In this thought-provoking book, the author exposes irrational religious teachings and encourages readers to think independently and base reasons on common sense and not on beliefs and dogmas.

The purpose of writing this book is to expose irrational religious teachings and encourage readers to think independently. The author questions the assumption that faiths are the revelations of our Creator.There are multiple questions to pose regarding this topic: what is the soul, and what happens after death? Why are there so many different religions, holy books, and worship rituals? Who were prophets? Why did god conceal himself from humanity? There is no god, but humans created brand-name gods of religions. Organized religions are spending billions of dollars every year in marketing their brand-name-god as the Creator and are profiting from it handsomely. Millions are making millions in this business. Cut-throat competition, winner takes all, and losers are forced to submit. Nations with standing armies are willing to give their all to protect their brand-name-god. Religion is the 'Brand' and the god of the faith 'Brand-name' god (Logo). The prophet is the 'CEO, ' and the followers are loyal 'Customers.' God cannot be without a religion, and Creator does not need one. Is there a god who can deliver justice in this world and not keep making promises, or keep issuing threats? To keep our god relevant in all situations, we continually flip-flop, and that makes everything foolproof.The author makes a passionate case for Creator, who is utterly incomprehensible, establishes the laws of nature to manage the affairs of the universe, is impartial and does not interfere in human affairs. Making Creator a party in humans struggles is self-serving. Creator is not a god of any religion. Creator does not show fake miracles, write mythical stories, make false promises, or write defective laws; One is exceptionally neutral and loves all. Creator and the universe is One. God does not exist, and Creator does not support any religion.Creator has no rival god to eliminate. One is not a Lord and does not demand or rewards worship. Don't need followers. Creator created humans capable of taking care of themselves so, humans don't need a message coming from the heave.The founders of religions were spiritual leaders who served humanity to the best of their abilities; however, they were not commissioned by any god, and they were not infallible. The message from a founder of a religion was accepted as the message from a brand-name god that the founder created for this purpose, who then is called the Creator, and that's a grand deception. Believers criticize science because they are concerned that science will prove that their religious teachings are false.Sun, Moon, and Stars are planets that revolve around each other in galaxies and not around the Earth, which itself is a small planet. And there is no sky but infinite space. Please, god, take note of it. Just because we can't explain something through science, does not mean that god is doing it.Religions gave us divine kings, feudal lords, slavery, and cast system. Genocides, inquisitions, and witch burnings. Persecutions, cutting of limbs and stoning to death. Wife beating, honor killing, and blasphemy laws. All on the name of god.The author encourages readers to live their lives, guided by their conscience, and enjoy it while they have it. No smoke screens and no make-believe worlds, you obey the law and do not worry. It's your deeds and not your beliefs that matter. Relax, be good, and be happy.
