    With Spiritual Maxims

    Make Peace before the Sun Goes Down

    The Long Encounter of Thomas Merton and His Abbot, James Fox

    • by
    • Roger Lipsey
    In the 1950s and ’60s, Thomas Merton, a monk of the Trappist monastery of Gethsemani in Kentucky, published a string of books that are among the most influential spiritual books of the twentieth century—including the mega–best seller The Seven-Storey Mountain. He was something of a rock star for a cloistered monk, and from his monastic cell he enjoyed a wide and lively correspondence with people from the worlds of religion,… Read More

  4. Being Taoist

    Being Taoist

    Wisdom for Living a Balanced Life

    • by
    • Eva Wong
    Taoist living rests on four pillars: the public, the domestic, the private, and the spirit lives. Not only do Taoists strive to live these four aspects fully and in a balanced way, they also believe there is an outlook and an art to each of them. Eva Wong uses the teachings of Taoist masters themselves to explain the essential concepts. She then gives voice to these texts—simplifying them, removing… Read More

    Hagakure

    The Book of the Samurai (Pocket Edition)

    • by
    • Yamamoto Tsunetomo
    Living and dying with bravery and honor is at the heart of Hagakure, a series of texts written by the eighteenth-century samurai Yamamoto Tsunetomo. For many years known only to the warrior vassals of the Nabeshima clan to which the author belonged, Hagakure later came to be recognized as a classic exposition of samurai thought. It illuminates the concept of bushido (the Way of the Warrior), which Tsunetomo refers to… Read More

  6. Runaway Realization

    Runaway Realization

    Living a Life of Ceaseless Discovery

    • by
    • A. H. Almaas
    The teaching in this book is off the map—because reality itself cannot be captured in a map. In fact, reality is far more alive, far more mysterious than anything we can conceive of. It is always revealing itself by knowing itself; and knowing reality and living it becomes the fulfillment of our life. A. H. Almaas, the originator of the Diamond Approach, here presents a new paradigm for understanding reality:… Read More

    Mussar Teachings to Transform Your Life

    • by
    • Alan Morinis
    Here is a spiritual practice for developing a strong and open heart—drawn from Judaism’s Mussar tradition. Mussar draws from the vast storehouse of Jewish wisdom, law, revelation, and text and brings it right home in a way that is completely practical. Judaism teaches that Torah (the collective wisdom of the tradition) provides the blueprint for human experience—and so the more of it we acquire, the more we gain a clearer,… Read More

  9. The Swordsman's Handbook

    The Swordsman's Handbook

    Samurai Teachings on the Path of the Sword

    • edited by
    • William Scott Wilson
    There is perhaps no more potent symbol of the samurai era than the sword. By the seventeenth century in Japan, the art of swordsmanship had begun to take on an almost cult-like popularity. Swordsmanship was more than a mastery of technique; it was a path toward self-mastery. The Swordsman’s Handbook is the definitive collection of writings by men who saw the study of swordsmanship not only as essential to life… Read More

  10. The Psychology of Yoga

    The Psychology of Yoga

    Integrating Eastern and Western Approaches for Understanding the Mind

    • by
    • Georg Feuerstein
    “Psychoanalysis itself and the lines of thought to which it gives rise,” said C. G. Jung, “are only a beginner’s attempt compared to what is an immemorial art in the East”—by which he was referring to the millennia-old study of the mind found in Yoga. That tradition was hardly known in the West when the discipline of psychology arose in the nineteenth century, but with the passing of time the… Read More
