Now, for the first time in the English language, Tantra Illuminated presents an accessible introduction to this sacred tradition that began 1,500 years ago in the far north of India. Using translations from primary Sanskrit sources and offering a profound look at spiritual practice, this book reveals Tantra´s rich history and powerful teachings.

In India, the tradition of chant is revered as the highest form of devotion: a form of vocal meditation that is practiced by common people and sants (saint singers) who wander through every village and city of the subcontinent. Through prayer sung from the heart, it is understood, anyone can achieve profound spiritual transformation and ecstasy. With voice alone, they reach the divine and merge, drowning in the sea of God´s love. It is in this timeless tradition that Divine Singing is offered as an intensive training course in the devotional music of India. Drawing from 30 years of experience, Kabir teaches a simple, easy-to-follow system you can use to experience the love, longing, and ecstasy hidden within your own voice. Divine Singing is not about religious belief. Rather, it draws from the rich musical world of the Hindus, Sufis, Buddhists, and believers of other faiths to vividly demonstrate how the voice can serve as a direct bridge to the divine. In 11 step-by-step sessions, you will discover the joy of chanting as a spiritual practice, principles of tonal resonance in body and spirit, the sacred silence within sound, the beauty of raga melody, how to attune to the creative power in sound, 20 authentic chants and hymns of devotion for you to sing along with, and much more. Here, for the first time, is an innovative synthesis of music and spiritual practices, waiting to open Western seekers to the realm where chant is an exalted vehicle for cosmic consciousness, a realm where your own voice is the bringer of mysteries, a realm where your voice and divine sound are one - the realm of Divine Singing. 1.

This is the story of Gandhi´s spiritual evolution - the turning points and choices that made him not just a great political leader but also a timeless icon of nonviolence. Eknath Easwaran grew up in India and witnessed how Gandhi inspired people of all races, backgrounds, and religions to turn anger into compassion and hatred into love. How had Gandhi transformed himself from an ineffective young lawyer into the Mahatma, the ´´great soul´´ who led 400 million ordinary men and women in their nonviolent struggle for independence? To find out, Easwaran visited Gandhi´s ashram and watched the Mahatma absorbed in meditation on the Bhagavad Gita - the wellspring of Gandhi´s spiritual strength. Easwaran, a leading authority on the Bhagavad Gita and on spiritual living, explains the principles underlying Gandhi´s nonviolence. He highlights how we can all use Gandhi´s teachings to make our families, workplaces, and communities more peaceful in the world today. This audiobook is a complete narration of Easwaran´s Gandhi the Man but excludes the short Foreword, and the Afterword (´´How Nonviolence Works´´) that are by other writers. 1. Language: English.
