Tahasa Falconar - Realization Enlightenment and Life of Rapture

'via Blog this'

Tahasa Falconar the great author of THE CREATIVE INFINITY MIND

Published his earlier work
Realization Enlightenment and Life of Rapture
with The English Book Depot.

The Greatest Minds

There are two parts- the greatest minds and the most beautiful minds. The great minds are scientists such as infinity minds solving the most intricate problems of Quantum Physics; and the most beautiful in poetry, art and music  produce the most beautiful  ideas. The first came from Einstein  studied by Count Alfred Korzybski  in Science and Sanity. Robert Oppenheimer at the Princeton University Institute For Advanced Study told Paul Dirac that he was going to place his portrait beside one of Einstein on a wall and they would be the only people on that wall .The second comes from oceanic poetry and Dr Kathleen Raine's Temenos- her worlds of the Imagination. Both use creative infinity mind and not words. 
The greatest ideas and poetry come from the super- conscious, which is manifested in the hissing  of the brain, leading to this poetry  being called oceanic: eg that of  Rumi, Kabir, Suhrawardi. In India it is named Kundalini; in the Mediterranean the Mystery Ceremonies  held in caves where the  leaders used the hissing Syrinx-Greek pan pipe, which trained students that  the leaders thought were being turned into gods.

The Little Coffee Shop of Kabul (Originally Published as a Cup of Friendship) by Deborah Rodriguez


After hard luck and heartbreak, Sunny finally finds a place to call home—in the middle of an Afghanistan war zone. There, the thirty-eight-year-old serves up her American hospitality to the expats who patronize her coffee shop, including a British journalist, a “danger pay” consultant, and a wealthy and well-connected woman. True to her name, Sunny also bonds with people whose language and landscape are unfamiliar to most Westerners, but whose hearts and souls are very much like our own: the maternal Halajan, who vividly recalls the days before the Taliban and now must hide a modern romance from her ultratraditional son; and Yazmina, a young Afghan villager with a secret that could put everyone’s life in jeopardy. In this gorgeous first novel, New York Times bestselling author Deborah Rodriguez paints a stirring portrait of a faraway place where—even in the fog of political and social conflict—friendship, passion, and hope still exist. 

Originally published as A Cup of Friendship

India: A Sacred Geography by Diana L. Eck

In India: A Sacred Geography, renowned Harvard scholar Diana Eck offers an extraordinary spiritual journey through the pilgrimage places of the world's most religiously vibrant culture and reveals that it is, in fact, through these sacred pilgrimages that India's very sense of nation has emerged.
No matter where one goes in India, one will find a landscape in which mountains, rivers, forests, and villages are elaborately linked to the stories of the gods and heroes of Indian culture. Every place in this vast landscape has its story, and conversely, every story of Hindu myth and legend has its place. Likewise, these places are inextricably tied to one another not simply in the past, but in the present through the local, regional, and transregional practices of pilgrimage.
India: A Sacred Geography tells the story of the pilgrim's India. In these pages, Diana Eck takes the reader on an extraordinary spiritual journey through the living landscape of this fascinating country ?its mountains, rivers, and seacoasts, its ancient and powerful temples and shrines. Seeking to fully understand the sacred places of pilgrimage from the ground up, with their stories, connections and layers of meaning, she acutely examines Hindu religious ideas and narratives and shows how they have been deeply inscribed in the land itself. Ultimately, Eck shows us that from these networks of pilgrimage places, India's very sense of region and nation has emerged. This is the astonishing and fascinating picture of a land linked for centuries not by the power of kings and governments, but by the footsteps of pilgrims.
India: A Sacred Geography offers a unique perspective on India, both as a complex religious culture and as a nation. Based on her extensive knowledge and her many decades of wide-ranging travel and research, Eck's piercing insights and a sweeping grasp of history ensure that this work will be in demand for many years to come.
About the Author
Diana L. Eck is professor of comparative religion and Indian studies at Harvard University and is Master of Lowell House and Director of the Pluralism Project. Her book Banaras, City of Light, remains a classic in the field, and Encountering God: A Spiritual Journey from Bozeman to Banaras won the prestigious Grawemeyer Book Award. In 1998, President Clinton awarded her the National Humanities Medal for the work of the Pluralism Project in the investigation of America's changing religious landscape.
