“The Gift is one woman's journey to find an answer from the horror of the past. It is a quest to bring to rest the guilt of the next generation, the children of the survivors and refugees surrounded by an immense family of ghosts...Seen through the cycle of the seasons, she, the first person narrator, tries to put the past not to rest but to life." Barb Radmore The close of the Nazi death camps was a beginning rather than an end for those who survived. Told through the eyes of a child of Holocaust survivors, The Gift lets us feel the pain and the courage that reaches into the decades beyond the war. Compelling and insightful. A memorable read. –Barb Lundy, poet

Why "Happy Meat" Is Always Wrong
This essay attacks the “happy meat” position head-on. It argues that this position is morally indefensible and that it not only causes immense amounts of animal suffering, but also, somewhat ironically, serves as the very foundation of our abuse of animals today. This reveals the moral urgency of stopping the spread of this position and of rejecting it completely. This essay attacks the “happy meat” position head-on.

How To Save The World (Not another global warming book)
The Mayans' prediction didn't come true but are we really out of danger? The world is still in peril and if it hasn't ended yet, it will soon if we don't do something to save it. 'How To Save The World' is not about global warming, but a reminder for all of us to change our ways before we kill the planet and ourselves along with it. "The future's uncertain and the end is always near." - Jim Morrison.The Lizard King was probably not talking about the world when he said these lines but they fit well to the current situation the world is in. Our society has become so blind in its insatiable thirst for more and more material possessions that we are killing the earth to fulfill our silly desires, not realizing that the end of the world would mean the end of us. But this book is not about becoming unmaterialistic and giving up all possessions to become a monk. It's definitely not about going green to reduce global warming.'How To Save The World' is about realizing the fallacy of our 'mor
Glories of Yog
Shri Paramhans Swami Adgadanandji Ashram Trust
Pranayam is the withdrawal of all the five senses from the physical objects and turning the mind away from the world of matter towards the Supreme Spirit...Meditation is the stillness of the flow of thoughts... There has been lot of confusion regarding Pranayam. Misleading facts and half- backed Truth about it have been advanced by theroreticians. So the devotees once requested Maharaj Shree to remove the cobwebs of wrong notions and throw light on the true nature of Pranayam. Mahraj Shree was kind enough to speak on this subject and make a thread - bare analysis of it for the benefit and welfare of the devotees. The talk was delivered in Hindi. The English rendering of it is presented to the World wide circulation. We are confident that a closed understanding of the facts revealed by the reverend Swami Adgadanand Ji Mahraj would help the devotees to move on the right track of spirituality and self realization. Mahraj Shree would be highly pleased if unresovled doubts in this regar

This book represents over 30 years of contemplation of the meaning of existence. It is a distillation of ideas intended to provide a complete science-based philosophical theory of "life the universe and everything".Although the concepts explored in this book are essentially metaphysical, there is a genuine intent to connect with real science; as a consequence, many of the underlying concepts are an amalgam of conventional physics and speculative philosophical theorizing. Only the individual reader can conclude whether this results in a meaningful whole, but within this conglomeration there is probably something to provoke profound reflection in anyone with an interest in answering the fundamental questions of being.

Takers Economy : An Inquiry into Illegal File Sharing
Takers Economy proposes an alternative look at illegal file sharing in light of the role of art in society, and in the context of the oneness of all beings and things. Over the last decade or so, file sharing has become a widespread phenomenon. As much as having the possibility of exchanging information almost instantaneously can represent a blessing in terms of communication and progress, it obviously opens the door to pursuits that enjoy a far less angelic reputation.Still, the overall picture suggests that a significant number of internet users participate in such ill-famed activities. Considering this state of affairs, could illegal file sharing actually be a positive process for those downloaders, and for the collectivity alike ?The question is generally approached from the angle of its economic impacts, but there is evidently more to the issue than its pecuniary dimension.Takers Economy proposes an alternative look at illegal file sharing in light of the role of art in societ
