Description : In Tibetan Prayer Flags, Diane Barker describes the origin and significance of this deeply spiritual and aesthetic expression of the wish for world harmony and presents an array of her own stunning color photographs of the flags in use. For example, there's a picture of the Yangtze River gorge, with prayer flags hanging over it. Hanging a flag over water benefits all that passes underneath. Flags hung outside the Dalai Lama's residence in Dharmasala include green, an astrologically auspicious color for his Holiness.The book comes with a box that also includes a string of fifteen hand-painted lung-ta--authentic Tibetan prayer flags. Specially designed with help from Dru-Gu Choegyal Rinpoche and manufactured in Nepal, the flags display rich imagery in five traditional colors and are ready to be hung in your home or garden. Now everyone can practice this ancient and sacred ritual, expressing support for the Tibetan people and spreading wishes of peace out into the world. This is a concise introduction to Tibetan history and Buddhist culture, and the use of prayer flags to promote peace, harmony, and happiness. It contains a string of fifteen authentic Tibetan prayer flags ready for hanging.

Description : The Psalms are the best known and most widely used prayer texts of the Bible. But the prayers of the Israelite took another form: the prose prayers that we find embedded in biblical narrative. Prose prayer was spoken by persons of all ranks. Male and female, Israelite and foreigner, all enjoyed equal access to God. The pervasiveness and spontaneity of this prayer, independent as it was of the structure and taboos of formal worship, turned it into a criterion for sincerity both in relations with God and in those among human beings. Greenberg finds in this rich life of private prayer a setting for the high religious ideas--and the scathing critique of worship--that characterized the "genius" of the prophets of the eighth and ninth centuries B.C. His compact and masterful study, originally the 1981-1982 Taubman Lectures at Berkeley, suggests an explanation for the unprecedented democratization of worship in post-biblical Judaism.

Description : Salah is the second pillar of the Islamic faith, the foundations of a Muslim's life, and the key to Paradise. A subject so important must be treated with care and attention and this book aims to provide the reader with a comprehensive, detailed, and accessible guide to this important topic. In this ground-breaking book, all elements of Sal h are expounded chapter by chapter, with useful translations and transliterations of original Arabic terms and phrases. Beginning with the history of the prayer, we progress through an analysis of the types of Sal h, its spiritual and physical benefits, and a unique step-by-step guide on learning to pray for those new to the practice. With this book, there should no longer be any confusion or lack of knowledge regarding Sal h. It is hoped that this book, written with the intention of easing the performance of the five daily prayers, will help readers understand the beauty of this ritual and turn it into an enjoyable daily experience, such that it is spiritually enriching and accepted in the eyes of Almighty God."

Description : The English term "prayer" is usually understood as communication with God or the gods. Scholars of Jewish ritual until now have accepted this characterization and applied it to Jewish tefillah. Does rabbinic prayer indeed necessarily entail second-person address to God, as many scholars of rabbinic prayer to this point have presumed? In this work, Yehuda Septimus investigates a boundary phenomenon of talmudic prayer - ritual speech with addressees other than God. The book represents a fresh look at the possible range of performances undertaken by talmudic ritual prayer. Moreover, it places that range of performances into the historical context of the rapid emergence of prayer as the centerpiece of Jewish worship in the first half of the first millennium CE.

Description : Most books are like visitors. They come and go. This book can be a long-term companion and assistant as you weave prayer into the tapestry of your life. Weaving Prayer Into the Tapestry of Life pictures each of us as a weaver at a loom, creating in every moment our lifes tapestry. The transformative thread of prayer is always available to be woven into our lifes design. In this weaving, we experience in wonder the creative presence of God. The chapters of this book gives an overview of Christian understanding and practice of prayer. The author combines Scripture, voices and sources from the tradition of the church, poetry, stories, and accounts of personal experience to explore ten of the most familiar ways Christians pray. These are: centering, praise, confession, meditative reading of Scripture, petition, intercession, dedication, silence, and benediction. Nine sets of Prayer Prompts, one with each chapter, invite you to move from thinking to doing. They provide a framework for personal devotion that includes all of the dimensions of Christian prayer discussed in the chapters. Resources from Scripture, prayers of the church, and contemporary materials offer structure and stimulus for expressing the prayers of your heart. These Prayer Prompts are adaptable for repeated use. Members of a prayer group or spiritual growth group may enjoy sharing experiences with this book. Martha Rowlett deeply understands Christian thinking, Christian living, Christian prayer, and, dare I say it, God. She shares her wisdom with utmost simplicity. Those who use her book will find themselves becoming better Christians. John Cobb, professor emeritus, Claremont School of Theology

Description : This volume envisions social practices surrounding mosques, shrines and public spaces in urban contexts as a window on the diverse ways in which Muslims in different regional and historical settings imagine, experience, and inhabit places and spaces as »sacred«. Unlike most studies on Muslim communities, this volume focuses on cultural, material and sensuous practices and urban everyday experience. Drawing on a range of analytical perspectives, the contributions examine spatial practices in Muslim societies from an interdisciplinary perspective, an approach which has been widely neglected both in Islamic studies and social sciences.
