The Light of Yoga Collection - Chandogya Upanishad

Summary

The Upanishads are an assortment of texts central to Hinduism (or the Sanatan Dharma) recorded from oral traditions. They contain the philosophical principles and concepts of Hinduism, including karma (right action), brahman (ultimate reality), the atman (true Self or soul), moksha (liberation from the cycle of reincarnation) and other complex Vedic doctrines which explain Self-realization through the ancient yoga system and other meditational and service practices. "Upanishad" is a Sanskrit word which translates to “sitting at the feet of” or “sitting down near." This alludes to receiving wisdom and guidance humbly from a realized guru. There are more than 200 Upanishads. Thirteen of these include the core philosophical teachings of what we now call Hinduism. The philosophical concepts contained in the Upanishads are principal to the Sanatan Dharma, but many are also shared with Buddhism and Jainism. The deeply poetic texts govern ideals of ultimate Self-realization as well as concepts of non-violence, compassion, charity and self-restraint as ethical concerns. Beautifully presented by Jagannatha Dasa and the artists and devotees of the Vedic Preservation Society here is an audiobook which not only entertains, enlightens, and deeply informs but just might positively change your life forever, for the better.

Magical Stories of The Vedas The Divine Pastimes of Sri Krishna - Enlightening Tales of the Supreme

Summary

“If a person hears about, glorifies, meditates upon, worships or simply offers great respect to the Supreme Lord Krishna, who is situated within the heart, the Lord will remove from his mind the contamination accumulated during many thousands of lifetimes.” (A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada) Krishna - the name itself is somehow transcendental and evokes a certain distant familiarity and evocative longing. In fact, it is said the name of Krishna is non-different from Himself. The ancient Vedic Scriptures also confirm that Krishna, as the Supreme Personality of Godhead, is therefore present in the sound vibration of His holy name. If Krishna’s name, and indeed Sanskrit itself, has this non-dual nature wherein that which is named and the name is one and the same, then the aspiring devotional yogi, can, by simply chanting Krishna’s name, either by itself or via the iconic Maha Mantra: "Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare", actually associate eternally with the Lord via this unique transcendental sound vibration.  This has been the way of Bhakti Yoga in the Vaishnava tradition for over 5,000 years. To further extrapolate this mystical ideal, it is said by sages everything relating to Sri Sri Radha Krishna has the same liberating potency including Their transcendental pastimes on this earth in Their many forms. This inspirational, devotional, entertaining, one of a kind, genuinely mystical audiobook presents Bhagavan Sri Krishna in his many alluring and mystifying incarnations (known as Das Avatar) accompanied by an amazing production of sound effects, music and other talented performers which help tell these ancient fascinating tales so well.  Here is the perfect audio companion for every serious aspiring yogi, confirmed devotee, student of eastern philosophy, curious commuter, or indeed anyone wishing to broaden the awareness of their true spiritual nature of the elemental essence of Sat Chit Ananda or eternity.

The Lost Years in India: Jesus

Summary

Over the centuries, the claim has repeatedly been made that Jesus Christ not only walked the earth, but also spent his early and post-crucifixion years in a variety of places, including Egypt, India, Great Britain, Japan, and America. Indeed, traditions maintain that Jesus, the great God-man of the West, lived, learned, loved, and died in such places. Popular modern literature also purports that Jesus sired children who then became the ancestors of various royal families of Europe, including France and/or elsewhere, depending on the author. The allegation of Christ being a kingly progenitor is extremely convenient and useful for European royal families, obviously. Unfortunately for the European claimants, however, India also has a tradition that Jesus went there and likewise fathered children. So, too, does Shingo, Japan, allege that Jesus ended up there after the crucifixion, having children with a Japanese wife. Other tales depict Jesus “walking the Americas” or bopping about Glastonbury, England, with his “uncle”, Joseph of Arimathea. Not all of these tales can be true, obviously, unless Jesus is polymorphous and phantasmagoric, a perspective that in reality represents that of the mythologist or mythicist. To wit, regardless of these fables, or rather, because of them, the most reasonable conclusion regarding Jesus and where he may or may not have been is that he is a mythical character, not a historical personage who trotted the globe.

The Lost Gospels of Lord Chaitanya

Summary

"Forgetting Krishna, the living entity has been attracted by the external feature from time immemorial. Therefore the illusory energy [maya] gives him all kinds of misery in his material existence. In the material condition, the living entity is sometimes raised to higher planetary systems and material prosperity and sometimes drowned in a hellish situation. His state is exactly like that of a criminal whom a king punishes by submerging him in water and then raising him again from the water.” “In this Age of Kali, the holy name of the Lord, the Hare Krishna mantra, is the incarnation of Lord Krishna. Simply by chanting the holy name, one associates with the Lord directly. Anyone who does this is certainly delivered.” “The Hare Krishna maha-mantra, is the incarnation of Lord Krishna.” “Regardless of time or place, one who chants the holy name, even while eating or sleeping, attains all perfection.” Sri Krishna Chaitanya Mahaprabhu was a Bengali Hindu mystic, saint, and the chief proponent of the Achintya Bheda Abheda Vedanta school and the Gaudiya Vaishnavism tradition within Hinduism. He also expounded the Vaishnava school of Bhakti yoga, based on Bhagavata Purana and Bhagavad Gita. This is his story, these are his teachings.  Produced by Devin Lawerence in Vrndavana Mixed and assembled by Macc Kay in Bangkok Musical consultant Alex Franchi in Milan Production executive Avalon Giuliano in London ICON Intern Eden Giuliano in Delhi   Dedicated to the sacred memory of two pure devotees, H.

Guide to Health: Mohandas K. Gandhi

Summary

"I will not let anyone walk through my mind with their dirty feet. Nobody can hurt me without my permission. Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do when are in harmony.” (Mahatma Gandhi) The great Mahatma Gandhi, an ambitious attorney turned simple orthodox Hindu holy man single-handedly invented the philosophy of nonviolent noncooperation which successfully dislodged the British empire from their long held, tyrannical, imperial rule over India. In this in depth, inspirational audiobook presented by well known author, actor, narrator Jagannatha Dasa, the important, and still timely thoughts of this iconic social reformer on the subject of clean living are neatly revisited. This Imperative socio-political, philosophical, esoteric profile in courage of simple good health is as important today as it was in the Mahatma’s time as many of us face an admittedly dreadfully unhealthy lifestyle arising from too much junk food, not enough rigorous exercise, a reliance on too many medicines, and far too little faith in God.  Here are the gentle, wise words of a soft spoken self realized man who not only asked seminal questions about the healthy life we all would benefit by, but also came up with powerful, tested solutions resulting in simple living but very high thinking. This Icon audiobook exclusive is perfect for all students of health and well being, social reformation, the spiritual science of yoga, curious commuters as well as all school and university systems.  Series producer Avalon Giuliano in New York Produced by Alex Franchi in Milan Edited and mixed by Macc Kay in Bangkok ICON intern Eden Garret Giuliano
