Description : For the first time in history, the Masters of Wisdom have opened their treasury of secret knowledge to reveal the highest Teaching. This Teaching will empower you to transform yourself and the world through awakening the omnipotent power hidden in your heart. Existing since time immemorial and called Surya-Vidya in antiquity, this Teaching taught the most worthy people about the sacred meaning of the heart as the sun of their universe — an inexhaustible source of perfect wisdom and divine power. However, humanity was not ready to accept the prevailing role of the heart. Therefore, the Teaching of the Heart has been kept secret and remained the prerogative of only the chosen few — those spiritual teachers who have proclaimed the omnipotence of the pure and loving heart. The time has come to awaken humanity to the almighty treasure we possess because its infinite possibilities can radically change not only individual lives, but also the entire suffering world for the better. This mission has been undertaken by the Greatest Teacher known as the Great Heart — the Lord of Love and Compassion, the King of the legendary kingdom of Shambhala hidden in the Himalayas. He is Maitreya for some, Christ for others, and the Mahdi for many more — He is the promised Messiah of all religions. Before coming into the world, He has given The Teaching of the Heart, making it accessible to everyone for daily use in modern life. Employing a spiral approach, the inspirational and uplifting books of The Teaching of the Heart series will reveal your heart's secret powers and cover a wide range of topics from everyday life to travels within the Universe. This series was written by Zinovia Dushkova, Ph.D., through a unique creative process called the fiery experience. She continues the spiritual tradition of the hidden Himalayan Masters who guided Helena Blavatsky and Helena Roerich to lead humanity from intellectual knowledge to the divine wisdom of the heart. "The love and light that seem to magically pour from the pages of prose are both beautiful and healing, and speak a message of hope." — Alyssa Elmore, Readers' Favorite "Reading the book's sublime lines led my heart to tremble with joy. This book really has an amazing energy that affects the heart in a mysterious way." — Michael Wilkin, Midwest Book Review "It is fresh and alive and as inspirational as any good spiritual work should be." — Peter Morris, Spirituality Today "I sensed the music behind the words, it was as if I knew what was coming and felt my senses responding to the call." — Bani Sodermark "[Zinovia Dushkova's] book is an exquisite symphony of Love played on the strings of her heart directly to yours. ... Those with open, loving hearts will hear!" — Russell Walls "Words cannot do this work justice! This is a must read for the whole world!" — EH Godfrey If you would like a wise Teacher to guide you through life, offer uplifting advice, and help you fulfill your spiritual potential and true purpose, this book series is for you.

Description : The Constitution of Shambhala The subject of Shambhala (the planetary Head centre, or theistically, the kingdom of ‘God’) has been previously veiled in such texts as the Kālachakra Tantra, but the true esoteric lore has only been provided gradually, first tentatively through the works of Blavatsky, and then in greater detail via Alice Bailey’s writings. This volume continues along this vein, presenting far more detail concerning this kingdom, and also of the Hierarchy of enlightened being (the planetary Heart centre) than hitherto revealed. A considerable compendium of revelation and esoteric knowledge is presented for the world’s esotericists to digest and the enlightened to expand upon.
Description : Nicholas Roerich--artist, philosopher, and explorer--relates the remarkable encounters and events of his travels through central Asia and Tibet at the turn of the 20th century. In his detailed diary notes he chronicled the legends and tales of Shambhala, the long-awaited realization of paradise on earth. With chapters on Tibetan art, the desert cities, and subterranean dwellers, Shambhala reveals Roerich's vision of a new age of human achievement.
Description : Many know of Shambhala, the Tibetan Buddhist legendary land of spiritual bliss popularized by the film, Shangri-La. But few may know of the role Shambhala played in Russian geopolitics in the early twentieth century. Perhaps the only one on the subject, Andrei Znamenski’s book presents a wholly different glimpse of early Soviet history both erudite and fascinating. Using archival sources and memoirs, he explores how spiritual adventurers, revolutionaries, and nationalists West and East exploited Shambhala to promote their fanatical schemes, focusing on the Bolshevik attempt to use Mongol-Tibetan prophecies to railroad Communism into inner Asia. We meet such characters as Gleb Bokii, the Bolshevik secret police commissar who tried to use Buddhist techniques to conjure the ideal human; and Nicholas Roerich, the Russian painter who, driven by his otherworldly Master and blackmailed by the Bolshevik secret police, posed as a reincarnation of the Dalai Lama to unleash religious war in Tibet. We also learn of clandestine activities of the Bolsheviks from the Mongol-Tibetan Section of the Communist International who took over Mongolia and then, dressed as lama pilgrims, tried to set Tibet ablaze; and of their opponent, Ja-Lama, an “avenging lama” fond of spilling blood during his tantra rituals.
Description : "Post-Metaphysics and the Paradoxical Teachings of Jesus: The Structure of the Real" uncovers the authentic voice-print of Jesus' teachings on the Kingdom of God and thereby outlines a new approach to theological language after the 'end of metaphysics'. By showing that the paradoxical 'deep structure' of Jesus' most radical teachings survives the Death of God and the deconstruction of metaphysics in twentieth-century continental philosophy, this book aims to reconstruct the original teachings of Jesus in a way that can begin a new conversation on what it means to be a Christian in a post-Christian world, while drawing on a remarkable range of supporting material, including John D. Caputo's award-winning theological appropriation of Derrida's deconstruction, the pioneering work of John Dominic Crossan on the parables of Jesus, and the novel insights of Jesus Seminar scholars Robert Funk and Branden Scott. Beginning with questions surrounding the 'end of metaphysics' in Martin Heidegger's existentialist philosophy and moving on to the ethico-political dimensions of Derrida's work, this volume examines Nicholas of Cusa's notion of God as the coincidence of opposites, Buddhist genius Nagarjuna's dialectic of Emptiness, and the Hindu concept of non-duality in raising the possibility of a post-metaphysical theology. Following an original unpacking of the parables of Jesus, the central thesis is woven together with reference to Moltmann's important work on the crucified God, as well as Kierkegaard and the Absolute Paradox, negative/mystical theology in the Christian tradition, twentieth-century Japanese philosopher Nishida Kitaro, and aspects of Nietzsche, Thomas Aquinas, Plato, Aristotle, Meister Eckhart, G. K. Chesterton, Slavoj Zizek, and Ken Wilber.
Description : In the remote snow-covered mountains near Tibet lies a community long thought to be a mere myth called Shambhala, or Shangri-La. Here, in this place, is knowledge that has been kept hidden for centuries, and an insight that can have a profound impact on the way each of us lives our lives. Your search for Shambhala begins with the words of a child and the vision of an old friend. Those slender clues and a powerful synchronicity will lead to Kathmandu, Nepal, and then to Lhasa, Tibet. Amid blowing snows and perilous mountains, you will meet the members of the secret Tibetan sect that guards mysterious legends - the verbal instructions handed down for centuries that describe the inner changes one must undergo before entering Shambhala. Finally, with Chinese Agents in pursuit, you will pass through regions where anger and compassion struggle for ascendancy, and arrive at a place where the stunning reality about human prayer-energy - our underdeveloped ability to increase the synchronicity in our lives and influence what will happen to us in the future - is revealed. Like James Redfield's other books, The Secret of Shambhala has a parable effect. Open yourself to this amazing adventure and the experience will stretch your world view. It will also leave you determined to channel your thoughts and wishes into a dynamic force that can help you to liberate your life, enhance the lives of others and actively change the world.
