The word "mu" is one ancient Zen teacher's response to the earnest question of whether even a dog has "buddha nature". Discovering for ourselves the meaning of the master's response is the urgent work of each of us who yearns to be free and at peace. "Practicing Mu" is synonymous with practicing Zen, "sitting with Mu" is an apt description for all Zen meditation, and it is said that all the thousands and thousands of koans in the Zen tradition are just further elaborations of Mu. This watershed volume brings together over forty teachers, ancient and modern masters from across centuries and schools, to illuminate and clarify the essential matter: the question of how to be most truly ourselves. Includes writings from: Dogen, Hakuin, Dahui, Thich Thien-An Zenkei Shibayama, Seung Sahn, Taizan Maezumi, Sheng Yen Philip Kapleau, Robert Aitken, Jan Chozen Bays, Shodo Harada Grace Schireson, John Daido Loori, John Tarrant Barry Magid, Joan Sutherland, and many more!

Occultist James Churchward was obsessed with the lost continent of Mu, home to the original human civilization, after learning of this mysterious and forgotten paradise from an Indian priest, who shared several ancient tablets written by the Naacals, the inhabitants of Mu. Or so Churchward claimed.Here, in this work first published in 1933, Churchward discusses his contention that all religions from across Earth share a common origin in Mu. In particular, he explores how symbols of Mu-gleaned, supposedly, from the ancient tablets-bear startling resemblances to everything from the Egyptian ankh and Chinese pictograms to Native American calendar glyphs.The reality of Mu aside, students of comparative mythology and fans of esoterica will find this a fascinating book.British inventor, engineer, and author COLONEL JAMES CHURCHWARD (1851-1936), the elder brother of mystic author Albert Churchward, also wrote The Lost Continent of Mu Motherland of Man (1926), The Children of Mu (1931), The Lost Continent of Mu (1931), Cosmic Forces of Mu (1934), and Second Book of Cosmic Forces of Mu (1935).

A ROUGH TRADE BOOK OF THE YEAR Well we're back again, They never kicked us out, Twenty thousand years of SHOUT SHOUT SHOUT Down through the epochs and out across the continents, generation upon generation of The Justified Ancients of Mu Mu have told variants of the same story - an end of days story, a final chapter story. But one with hope, even if the hope at times seems forlorn. The story contained in this trilogy is the latest telling. Here it is presented as a utopian costume drama, set in the near future, written in the recent past. Read with care. REMEMBERED - TOLD - TRANSCRIBED for Dead Perch Books *** In the Spring of 2013, the undertakers Cauty & Drummond were on a tour of the Western Isles of Scotland. It was while staying at Jura's one hotel that they came across a strange-looking book. The book was titled Back in the USSR and authored by someone using the name of Gimpo. Back in the USSR was the memoir of a young woman who had been a nurse in the Falklands War in 1982. Gimpo ended up in Kiev in what was then the Soviet state of The Ukraine. Here she met with two women named Tat'jana and Kristina who went under numerous aliases, the most widely used being The KLF. Also in Back in the USSR it was claimed that Tat'jana and Kristina had been heavily influenced by a book originally written in English as The Twenty Twenty-Three! Trilogy by someone calling themselves George Orwell. But this George Orwell was in turn the pen name of Roberta Antonia Wilson. What you are about to read is what they read - well, almost. As for Back in the USSR, if we are able to sell the initial edition of this book and make a return on our investment, we hope to publish that. As for the current whereabouts of Tat'jana and Kristina, we have no idea. They were last seen disappearing into the depths of the Black Sea in their decommissioned Project 865 Piranha submarine. This supposed disappearance happened on 23 August 1994. Rumour on the internet has it they would not reappear for another twenty-three years.

What if the Garden of Eden were on a sunken continent? What if our world was once sustained by human emotion, particularly the love of the first two human souls? This continent is Lemuria, Mu, and when its twin, Atlantis, a land of science and vaingloriousness, extends its arm into the spiritual and meek borders of its sister the world will forever change. A temperamental lieutenant of Atlantis and his underground revolutionaries, a young woman with the rare and ancient ability to manifest her emotions into crystals, a deaf recluse, and a mysterious city of legend where all human life began-this is the stage on which Mu, the Motherland, unfolds herself. Lieutenant Seth Vistin follows the orders of the Emperor of Atlantis and explores this neighboring land, its ways, and its people. While meditating, Aset produces a strange crystal and follows the instructions of a woman from a dream who says to join her. The deaf Thoth struggles to make a name for himself in the cavernous town of his birth, only to discover a lost and forgotten piece of sacred text. All the while, ever since Creation wrapped her warm arms over the world, the first two human souls seek out each other with the aid of two sprites that only live in scripture and lore. But these sprites must relentlessly search every soul, with hopes of finding the reborn First Two, reunite them and breathe harmony back into the world.

A re-issue of the 1926 classic by James Churchward, The Lost Continent of Mu: Motherland of Men supplemented with fresh research and new material by the author's great-grandson. In the 1920s, James Churchward wrote a series of groundbreaking books about the lost continent of Lemuria which he called the land of Mu. The basic premises are these: • The Garden of Eden was not in Asia, but on a sunken continent in the Pacific Ocean. • The Biblical story of creation came not from the peoples of the Nile, but from this now submerged continent of Mu—the Motherland of Men. • Mu was an advanced civilization of 64 million inhabitants… He obtained the information by living with monks and translating unknown manuscripts. Over the years, his books have come to be considered occult classics. Now his great-grandson, Jack Churchward, has resurrected this valuable work and added his own research. Included: · The Lost Continent · The Land of Man’s Advent on Earth · Egyptian Sacred Volume, Book of the Dead · Symbols of Mu · North American’s Place Among the Ancient Civilizations · The Geological History of Mu · Ancient Religious Conceptions · Ancient Sacred Mysteries, Rites and Ceremonies

Ein riesiges Inselreich erstreckte sich einst im Pazifik, von dem weltweit Legenden berichten. Der Autor forschte und reiste zehn Jahre lang, bis sich durch neue Funde der Tiefsee-Archäologie, uralte Inschriften und Symbole sowie historische Dokumente das Bild einer hoch entwickelten Zivilisation ergab, die in Harmonie lebte, das Wetter und die Schwerkraft beherrschte, sogar Genforschung betrieb. Nicht eine, sondern gleich drei Flutkatastrophen führten ihren Untergang herbei. Die Überlebenden brachten ihr Wissen nach Asien, Polynesien und bis tief ins Innere Amerikas. Indianische Totempfähle, Thailands Architektur, die Steinstatuen der Osterinsel zeigen alle diese Verwandtschaft zu Mu oder Lemurien. Alles begann auf dem Kontinent Mu, der Wiege der Menschheit. Es gab dort ein hohes Maß technologischer und wissenschaftlicher Kenntnisse, die unser heutiges Wissen in vielen Bereichen weit überragt. Nicht eine, sondern drei Flutkatastrophen sorgten schließlich für den endgültigen Untergang. Den einstigen Bewohnern verdanken wir die Ursprünge aller Kulturen der Welt, gleich ob asiatischer, europäischer oder afrikanischer Prägung, und kurz vor dem Ende war Mu oder Lemurien nicht so sehr ein bestimmtes Land, sondern ein Volk und seine Kultur, und es erstreckte sich über zahlreiche, zum Teil Tausende Kilometer voneinander entfernte Territorien im und entlang des Pazifiks. "Eine längst überfällige historische Aufarbeitung aller wesentlichen, uns heute zugänglichen Quellen über den untergegangenen Kontinent. Vermutlich das wichtigste Buch über die Urheimat aller Menschen, das je geschrieben wurde." Mit umfangreichem Bildteil!

Das engagiert geschriebene Werk gilt als Klassiker der Geschichtsschreibung. Dies ist Band 1, bis zur Abschaffung des römischen Königtums.

Zwei weise Männer, eine Botschaft Sie sind zwei der bedeutendsten Leitfiguren unserer Zeit: Seine Heiligkeit der Dalai Lama und Erzbischof Desmond Tutu. Obwohl ihr Leben von vielen Widrigkeiten und Gefahren geprägt war, strahlen sie eine Freude aus, die durch nichts zu erschüttern ist. Im Buch der Freude vereinen die „Brüder im Geiste“ ihre immense Lebenserfahrung und die Weisheit ihrer Weltreligionen zu einer gemeinsamen zentralen Erkenntnis: Nur tief empfundene Freude kann sowohl das Leben des Einzelnen als auch das globale Geschehen spürbar zum Positiven wandeln. Unabhängig von allen Herausforderungen und Krisen, mit denen wir täglich konfrontiert werden, können wir diese Energie in uns entfalten und weitergeben. So wird die Freude zur Triebkraft, die unserem Dasein mehr Liebe und Sinn verleiht – und zugleich Hoffnung und Frieden in unsere unsichere Welt bringt.

Shang, Yang. The Book of Lord Shang. A Classic of the Chinese School of Law. Translated from the Chinese with Introduction and Notes by Dr. J.J.L. Duyvendak. London: Arthur Probsthain, 1928. xiv, 346 pp. Reprinted 2003 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. LCCN 2002024318. ISBN 1-58477-241-7. Cloth. $80. * Reprint of Volume XVII in Probsthain's Oriental Series. With a Chinese index and an index of names and references. The Book of Lord Shang was probably compiled sometime between 359 and 338 BCE. Along with the Han Fei-Tzu, it is one of the two principal sources of Legalism, a school of Chinese political thought. Legalism asserts that human behavior must be controlled through written law rather than through ritual, custom or ethics because people are innately selfish and ignorant. The law is not effective when it is based on goodness or virtue; it is effective when it compels obedience. This is essential to preserve the stability of the State. Roscoe Pound recommended this book for the study of old Chinese law in Outlines of Lectures on Jurisprudence (5th ed.) 235.

This book examines the modern Arab rediscovery of the Mu tazila through a critical assessment of the concept of Neo-Mu tazilism" and by concentrating on the various intentions and contexts of the use of Mu tazilite ideas.The main part of the book analyzes five ways of understanding Mu'tazilite ideas liberal, historic-materialist, political-Islamic, literary-exegetical and through comparison with the philosophie des valeurs as well as one way of dealing with the school historically: the treatment of the mi na.The book discusses a wide range of authors of whom many, such as A mad Am n, usain Mur wa, asan anaf , Mu ammad Am ra, Na r Ab Zaid und Mu ammad bid al- bir , have had an important impact on modern Arab-Islamic thought. By also presenting authors such as Zuhd rall h, Chikh Bouamrane, Ra d al- ayy n, Am n N yif iy b, Sam Du aim, dil al- Aww und Fahm ad n, additional light is shed on a number of lesser known figures."
