Description : The comprehensive and accurate edition of the Hagakure is a must-have for serious martial artists or fans of samurai and the bushido code. The Hagakure is one of the most influential of all Japanese texts—written nearly 300 years ago by Yamamoto Tsunetomo to summarize the very essence of the Japanese Samurai bushido ("warrior") spirit. Its influence has been felt throughout the world and yet its existence is scarcely known to many Westerners. This is the first translation to include the complete first two books of the Hagakure and the most reliable and authentic passages contained within the third book; all other English translations published previously have been extremely fragmentary and incomplete. Alex Bennett's completely new and highly readable translation of this essential work includes extensive footnotes that serve to fill in many cultural and historical gaps in the previous translations. This unique combination of readability and scholarship gives Hagakure: The Secret Wisdom of the Samurai a distinct advantage over all previous English editions.
Description : [For your convenience there is a dedicated website available, click here. Also connect on Facebook!] With The End Of Religion, The Beginning Of Self readers can look forward to an in-depth analysis, profound interpretation and insightful reflection of the Bible. This spectacular read freely shares a thought-provoking perspective about famous and less famous Bible stories and their practical significance in the reader's life. Every letter of the Hebrew Alphabet is explained in a separate chapter and in many different ways, as a letter and as a letter-name, as a number and as a number-name, as part of scripture and as part of words. This technique is one of the most important legacies given to human kind. There is no doubt scientists will be baffled by this innovative knowledge for centuries to come, especially when they get wind of its applications. Exhilarating, this read contains poems, riddles and appendices for extra depth and emphasis. So what are you waiting for? Let this book open the doors to a greater and more profound understanding about life, the universe and everything!
Description : Welcome to The Little Book of Secret Code Puzzles. If you've never solved a code puzzle before, or never even heard of a Code Puzzle, you're holding a book in your hands that will bring you a lot of amusement and insight. Some readers, especially those who are experienced puzzle solvers, might say these puzzles are very easy. And they are designed to be easy! But people who have never solved a code puzzle before will delight in learning a new skill, after which they'll find that each puzzle they decode will bring them a thought that will humor, encourage, or challenge them. Each two-page spread contains both a puzzle and a quotation, and each two-page spread of puzzle and quote is related in its sentiment. The quotes come from people who have lived all over the world, and from all ages of history, and each quote gives a clue to help solve the puzzle it accompanies on the opposite page. Some of the puzzles are intended to be a bit humorous, but each contains a little pearl of wisdom that I describe as just waiting to be discovered.

Description : According to ancient records, the patriarchs and founders of the early civilizations in Egypt, India, China, Peru, Mesopotamia, Britain, and the Americas were colonized by the Serpents of Wisdom—spiritual masters associated with the serpent—who arrived in these lands after abandoning their beloved homelands and crossing great seas. While bearing names denoting snake or dragon (such as Naga, Lung, Djedhi, Amaru, Quetzalcoatl, Adder, etc.), these Serpents of Wisdom oversaw the construction of magnificent civilizations within which they and their descendants served as the priest kings and as the enlightened heads of mystery school traditions. The Return of the Serpents of Wisdom recounts the history of these "Serpents"—where they came from, why they came, the secret wisdom they disseminated, and why they are returning now.
