First published in 1914, this is a fascinating investigation of the origins of Buddhism, drawing on a wealth of evidence relating to the life and teachings of the Buddha. First considering how the study of the Buddhist doctrine can be used to critique religious systems such as Christianity, Barthélemy Saint-Hilaire proceeds to discuss Buddhism at three different periods of its history: the life and legend of the Buddha as demonstrated within canonical works, Buddhism in India during the seventh century, and finally, Buddhism in Sri Lanka (formally ‘Ceylon’) at the start of the twentieth century. Principally a philosophical study surrounding the origins and principles of Buddhism, this reissue will be of particular value to students researching contemporary perceptions of the Buddhist faith.

Military policeman, Sergeant Joe Armandi was only nineteen, but he was wise and experienced beyond his years. His classroom was the poor and tough neighborhood where he was born and raised. One lesson he had learned was simple but true: Evil to various degrees lives in everyone who walks on the planet, whether it is manifested by a simple hurtful word, the commission of a crime, a greedy thirst for some object, or murder. Each individual since the beginning of time has experienced this truth. Trying to find himself after the tragic and untimely death of Joyce, his one and only love, which put an end to his life’s dream, Joe found himself in South Korea as an undercover agent, trying to discover the traitorous American soldier selling vital shipping information to hijackers the Red Dragons, the largest, most violent, and extremely successful criminals in South Korea. Using his talents and experience as a superior prizefighter, Joe infiltrated the gang whose leader, Won Pak, owned an illegal fighting arena. Joe made a lot of money for Pak and thus was cautiously accepted by him. After months of investigation, Joe still hadn’t exposed the American traitor, but he had some strong possibilities. Joe knew everyone dies, and since Joyce died, he was ready for anything and feared nothing. Many attempts were made to seriously damage Joe’s body, even torture, and assassination was also tried more than once. All that mayhem ended after Joe stole a million-dollar treasure that everyone wanted.

The Lama Yeshe Wisdom Archive (LYWA) is the collected works of Lama Thubten Yeshe and Kyabje Lama Thubten Zopa Rinpoche. The Archive was founded in 1996 by Lama Zopa Rinpoche, its spiritual director, to make available in various ways the teachings it contains. From a review in BuddhaDharma magazine:Teachings From the Medicine Buddha Retreat is a nearly complete record of the teachings given by Lama Zopa Rinpoche during a twenty-five day Medicine Buddha retreat in the fall of 2001. The sections are short, on topics such as making offerings to the buddhas and the nature of mind. The retreat was held less than two months after the 9/11 attacks, and Lama Zopa's teachings are full of references to terrorism, war, Iraq, and Afghanistan.The book is not meant as a coherent presentation on any particular topic; however, one is rewarded by just opening it and reading anywhere. Lama Zopa is a clear and effective teacher, and his stories are endlessly entertaining and inspiring.

Exploring ethnic Tibet independently is a challenge. With the 'land of snows' having some of the wildest and roughest road routes in high Asia, motoring, mountain-biking and trekking options are all given due attention in this new edition. High quality, numerous maps set this guide apart from other guides on Tibet and the trekking section has been expanded to include more on the main treks, including Everest Base Camp, Genden to Samye, Namtso trek and Kailiash region treks. Particular attention has been paid to the Amdo and Kham regions, not usually covered in guidebooks. Political and cultural issues make Tibet a sensitive destination for Westerners, so Michael Buckley's authoritative advice includes guidelines on cultural etiquette, local customs, and travelling with minimum impact on the culture and environment. The chapter on language includes a section covering Tibetan script.
