Discovering the Essence of Religion

Discovering the Essence of Religion
  • Author : Ellington Bakumor
  • Publisher : BookRix
  • Release : 2015-03-14
  • ISBN : 3736864566
  • Language : En, Es, Fr & De

Book Description :

There is nothing wrong with any religion until it assumes a monolithic stance, at the expense of the commonalities between all religions useful for a collective and universal outlook of all faiths. All religions can be likened to the riverbed that largely determines the color of its water even though, in essence, the water is always white. By this work, Brother Ellington is contributing greatly to breaking the atom through which the universal sound of our lifetime could be heard. That sound, spoken of beforehand, seeking the elimination of religious barriers, thus, ensuring a universal peace and harmony. IMAM MUHAMMAD HUSSAINI BAGNYA

Totality in Essence

Totality in Essence
  • Author : Vimala Thakar
  • Publisher : Motilal Banarsidass Publ.
  • Release : 2002-07
  • ISBN : 9788120800489
  • Language : En, Es, Fr & De

Book Description :

The book contains nine talks delivered by the author and one Question-Answer Session conducted by her. The contents of the book revolve round the point that life is neither individual nor collective but one indivisible whole. The writer asks us to brush aside our age-old concepts of dividing life into individual and collective, the inner and the outer, the physical and the psychological in order to escape from nervous tensions or chemical pressures that characterize the activities of Man of this age. The writer traces the cause of our misery to our ignorance of the mechanism of mind, the chemistry of thoughts and emotions and the imbalances that shatter our nervous system, and advises us for a clear understanding of our mental processes, the relaxation of the mind, the cessation of its activities-- the Ego or the `I` consciousness. In this state of total relaxation a new quality of intelligence begins to function. With the mind relaxed, the aspirant rises above Ego, is freed from worldly desires and becomes established in God. This unique contribution to yogic science constitutes remedies for our thousand ills and sufferings and will be welcomed by the reader.

Discovering the Christian Mind

Discovering the Christian Mind
  • Author : Douglas Vickers
  • Publisher : Wipf and Stock Publishers
  • Release : 2011-06-24
  • ISBN : 1630875740
  • Language : En, Es, Fr & De

Book Description :

The relation between Christianity and the claims of reason has been at times sharp and conflicting and at times symbiotic. Noted scholars in the church and in the secular academy have asked what Christianity has to do with culture and what the Christian mind has to say, or should be saying, by way of critique in the marketplace of ideas. In Discovering the Christian Mind, Douglas Vickers argues insightfully that prior to the question of what the Christian mind should be doing or saying is that of what the Christian mind is. Vickers shows that the true identity of the Christian mind derives from the Holy Spirit's conveyance to the soul of the grace of regeneration. The conclusion that regeneration is prior to knowing, and that those know truly who know God truly, challenges thought and opinion.
