              The Epic of Gesar of Ling: Gesar's Magical Birth, Early Years, and Coronation as King
               

              The Epic of Gesar of Ling: Gesar's Magical Birth, Early Years, and Coronation as King (Hardback)

              Translated by Kornman, Robin; Chonam, Lama; Khandro, Sangye; Foreword by the Dalai Lama, H. H.; Rinpoche, Alak Zenkar

              The Gesar of Ling epic is the Tibetan equivalent of The Arabian Nights. For hundreds of years, versions of it have been known in oral and written form in Tibet, China, Central Asia, and across the eastern Silk Route. King Gesar, renowned throughout these areas, represents the ide...al warrior. As a leader with his people's loyalty and trust, he conquers all their enemies and protects the peace. His life story, which is full of miracles and magic, is an inspiration and a spiritual example to the people of Tibet and Central Asia even today; Gesar's warrior mask can be seen in the town square and on the door of homes in towns and villages throughout this area. As a Buddhist teaching story, the example of King Gesar is also understood as a spiritual allegory. The enemies in the stories represent the emotional and psychological challenges that turn people's minds toward greed, aggression, and envy, and away from the true teachings of Buddhism. These enemies graphically represent the different manifestations of the untamed mind. The teaching is that genuine warriors are not aggressive, but that they subjugate negative emotions in order to put the concerns of others before their own. The ideal of warriorship that Gesar represents is that of a person who, by facing personal challenges with gentleness and intelligence, can attain spiritual realization. This is volume one of three, which tells of Gesar's birth, his mischievous childhood, his youth spent in exile, and his rivalry for the throne with his treacherous uncle. The Gesar epic tells how the king, an enlightened warrior, in order to defend Tibet and the Buddhist religion from the attacks of surrounding demon kings, conquers his enemies one by one in a series of adventures and campaigns that take him all over the Eastern world. He is assisted in his adventures by a cast of heroes and magical characters who include the major deities of Tibetan Buddhism as well as the native religion of Tibet. Gesar fulfills the Silk Route

              VILLAGE AT WAR: AN ACCOUNT OF CONFLICT IN VIETNAM WITH A SPECIAL FOREWORD BY H.H. THE 14TH DALAI LAMA OF TIBET First published in 1980, this is a classic account of decades of warfare in Vietnam, seen through the eyes of the people in a large central Vietnamese village. This EXPA...NDED and UPDATED Third Edition also includes forewords to previous editions by Cornell Professor George McT. Kahin and U.S. Senator Eugene J. McCarthy. This is the real-life drama of a Vietnamese village as related by the villagers themselves to the young American who came to live nearby and stayed almost until the collapse of the Saigon government in 1975. We hear from a wide range of Vietnamese, and we gain an understanding of the trauma, confusion, and cruelty of war. With 32 photographs, many of which appear publicly here for the first time. Comments on the Book: A different kind of story about Vietnam emerges in Village at War. - The New York Times The Vietnam War, as seen through the eyes of the Vietnamese, is a haunting and absorbing saga. - The Asia Mail Village at War is a superb and unique contribution to the literature on the Vietnam conflict. Trullinger is remarkably successful at combining an intensive case study of one Vietnamese village with the larger picture of modern Vietnamese political history from French colonialism through the Communist victory in 1975. It is truly an example of scholarship that makes history and politics come alive. - William A. Joseph, Wellesley College I'm a big admirer of Village at War. - Fredrik Logevall, Harvard University Thank you very much...for your important book Village at War. - King Norodom Sihanouk, Cambodia This is a detailed description of how war and revolution swept up a single village in central Vietnam. Trullinger's purpose is to present the conflict 'primarily as villagers experienced it - not to turn My Thuy Phuong into a testing ground for theories and strategies.'... It is successful in describing how one village survived Vietn

              Ancient Futures, 3rd Edition (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By Norberg-Hodge, Helena; Foreword by the Dalai Lama, H. H.

              A moving portrait of tradition and change in Ladakh, or Little Tibet, Ancient Futures is also a scathing critique of the global economy and a rallying call for economic localization. When Helena Norberg-Hodge first visited Ladakh in 1975, she found a pristine environment, a self-...reliant economy and a people who exhibited a remarkable joie de vivre. But then came a tidal wave of economic growth and development. Over the last four decades, this remote Himalayan land has been transformed by outside markets and Western notions of progress. As a direct result, a whole range of problems from polluted air and water to unemployment, religious conflict, eating disorders and youth suicide have appeared for the first time. Yet this is far from a story of despair. Social and environmental breakdown, Norberg-Hodge argues, are neither inevitable nor evolutionary, but the products of political and economic decisions and those decisions can be changed. In a new Preface, she presents a kaleidoscope of projects around the world that are pointing the way for both human and ecological well-being. These initiatives are the manifestation of a rapidly growing localization movement, which works to rebuild place-based cultures strengthening community and our connection with nature. Ancient Futures challenges us to redefine what a healthy economy means, and to find ways to carry centuries-old wisdom into our future. The book and a related film by the same title have, between them, been translated into more than 40 languages.
