Television, radio, newspapers or the internet show a daily dismal world scenario. Every week, every month there is a major civil conflict or a terrorist attack somewhere. All over the world innocent are imprisoned, women are victims of domestic violence, are forced into underpaid labor or sex work. Children are still dying by the millions before they are five years old due to unsanitary conditions, lack of safe drinking water or malnourishment. Malaria and HIV-AIDS kill millions yearly and thousands of adolescents are kidnapped to become rebel soldiers. Autocratic governments deny democratic participation to the majority and suppress ferociously any popular peaceful manifestation. The worlds climate is now threatened due to man-made disequilibrium inflicted on the atmosphere by uncontrolled fumes and gas emissions of all types. Water sources are being poisoned by unscrupulous corporations dumping huge amounts of deadly chemicals into waterways. The inequality between rich and poor nations is so vast that 7 - 10% of the worlds population controls the natural and financial resources of the world at the expense of the rest who have no access to a minimum for survival. The reasons for this hellish situation are multiple and varied. They encompass deeply ingrained religious beliefs, unacceptable economic, military and power disparities, and uncontrolled moral degradation affecting all realms of everyday life. These problems have profound spiritual causes and thus require a spiritual perspective. Discover the origin of the new Divine Invitation and the specific solutions it offers for todays major world problems.

Religion in Japan: Unity and Diversity

Author: H. Byron Earhart

Publisher: Cengage Learning

ISBN: 1133934811

This standard text explores religion in Japan as a complex tapestry of different religious strands, reflecting both the unity and diversity of Japanese culture, a theme Earhart pioneered in the first edition (1969) of this enduring, classic book--a theme he has devoted subsequent decades to refining through cutting-edge scholarship and keen observation of the evolving religious scene. Tracing the development of religious traditions from the prehistoric era through modern times, Earhart explores the vital influence of Shinto, Buddhism, Daoism, Confucianism, and folk religion. Presuming no technical or academic background, the text guides students to key Japanese religious themes, which include the proximity of humans and gods, the religious character of the family, the bond between religion and the nation, and the pervasiveness of religion in everyday life. This new edition updates the description and interpretation of the entire history of religion in Japan in light of the latest developments in the field. In the latter chapters, changes in the contemporary scene are highlighted, discussing Tokyo Disneyland, manga, and anime as alternative reality, as well as the innovations in more traditional events such as wedding ceremonies and rites for the dead.

Die kosmische Doktrin

Author: Dion Fortune

Vor zweiundsiebzig Jahren fand in Glastonbury zu Beginn der Frühlingsäquinoktien ein bemerkenswertes Ereignis statt. Fast ein Jahr lang empfing Dion Fortune von den inneren Ebenen Mitteilungen über die Erschaffung des Universums, die später zu einem Klassiker wurden. Die kosmische Doktrin blieb bis 1949 ein streng gehütetes Geheimnis, als für einen kleinen Kreis eine privat gedruckte Version herauskam, da Dion Fortunes Nachfolger das Original als "ein höchst gefährliches Buch" ansah. Es ist jetzt zum ersten Mal vollständig im Originaltext in dieser maßgeblichen Ausgabe erhältlich. Dieser Gesamttext untersucht das Niemandsland, in dem Wissenschaft und Magie sich begegnen. Die Kosmologie des "Big Bang" und die Chaostheorie laufen parallel zu dem evolutionären Prozeß. Jeder menschliche Geist lernt die Lektionen freiwillig und erwirbt die Erfahrungen, die mit dem physischen Universum zusammenhängen. Neben der Erschaffung des Universums und der Evolution der Menschheit lehrt Die kosmische Doktrin vieles über die Naturgesetze, die Evolution des Bewußtseins und das Wesen des Denkens. Das Buch ist mit Diagrammen von einem der engsten Mitarbeiter Dion Fortunes illustriert.
