Description
About The Book

This is a compilation of some of the essays which Ravi Ravindra, a scientist-philosopher has written over more than a quarter of a century. These essays have been published in a variety of journals and magazines some of which are not now easily accessible. Brief excerpts from some of his books. Whispers from the Other Shore, Science and Spirit, the Yoga of the Christ and Krishnamurti: two birds on One Tree, are also included in the collection.

. Each of the selections here is influenced by yoga and the teaching of Krishna; all of them speak of and are related to the wisdom of the spiritual traditions of India. They range from an exploration of Rita in the Rig Veda and its relation to Yajna and dharma in the subsequent tradition on contemporary spiritual masters such as J. Krishnamurti. G.I. Gurdjieff Some of the essays deal exclusively with the great texts of India, such as the Yoga Sutra and the Bhagavad Gita, while some deal with the parallels which can be found with texts from other traditions, such as The Enneads of Plotinus and the Gospel according to Saint John.

. Others essays discuss the interaction of modern science and the spiritual traditions if India and their impact on the life of humanity. Ravindra is at home in the East and in the west; he understand hymns in Vedic Sanskrit and nuances of relativistic cosmology, and he brings insights from both sources. He shares his passionate inquiry about the meaning and purpose of human life and of the cosmos that we might discover if we could hear more subtly and see more deeply. In this he exhibits a remarkable impartiality which searches for and delights in truths and wisdom wherever they can be found, without an argument for or an exclusive interest in any sect, religion or tradition.

I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
