Grazie per aver aperto questo libro. Che c’è dentro? Non lo saprete mai, se non lo leggete. Ma vi daremo qualche piccola indicazione. Giusto per disorientarvi un po’. Se non siete disposti a deragliare di un millimetro dalle vostre rassicuranti abitudini, dal primo caffè mattutino all’ultimo film prima di andare a letto, questo libro non vi serve. Se non vi solletica l’idea di incontrare sui sentieri meno battuti dell’Himalaya filosofi orientali demolitori dell’Io, architetti della Supermente, maestri della deprogrammazione razionale, virtuosi dello zen e pensatori straordinariamente originali e spiazzanti, questo non è il vostro libro. Se non sentite il richiamo delle leggende indiane, dei punti di vista radicalmente opposti, e non siete attratti dall’inatteso, rimettete pure il libro sullo scaffale. In giro troverete qualcosa di più interessante. Se invece siete curiosi, amate gli sguardi inediti e vi attira l’idea che una cultura agli antipodi della nostra possa condurci per . . .

According to Vedic tradition, these "Hymns of Brahma" were recited or sung countless millennia ago by the first embodied being, Lord Brahma, just before he created the universe. The book consists of a brief description of Brahma's enlightenment by Lord Sri Krsna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, followed by Brahma's extraordinarily beautiful prayers elucidating the content of his revelation. Although the whole of the Brahma-­samhita has not been located, the fifth chapter stands alone as a short but complete work.

"Bushido", wörtlich die "Wege des Kriegers", ist der ungeschriebene Ehren- und Verhaltenskodex der alten japanischen Adelskrieger, der Samurai. Er bildet einen der Eckpfeiler der japanischen Kultur. Seine Wurzeln liegen im Buddhismus, Shintoismus und Konfuzianismus, aus denen er die ritterlichen Tugenden Redlichkeit, Mitgefühl, Höflichkeit, Loyalität, Ehre, Mut und Selbstbeherrschung ableitet. Nitobe hat diese Lehre zum ersten Mal erschlossen und mit Beispielen und Vergleichen aus der westlichen Kultur und Geschichte verständlich gemacht. Sein Buch avancierte zum Standardwerk und ist es bis heute geblieben.

Questo libro è senza dubbio, dopo "L’unità trascendente delle religioni", il testo più importante per avvicinarsi seriamente al pensiero di Frithjof Schuon. Contiene dei capitoli di natura prettamente “filosofica” che aiuteranno il lettore incline a soddisfare il suo legittimo bisogno di logica a orientarsi in questa “Torre di Babele” che è il pensiero moderno. Con la pubblicazione di Logica e Trascendenza, l’opera scritta di Schuon assume una dimensione nuova. Opera “radicale”, dirà Jean Borella nel suo eccellente commento all’opera schuoniana, che riassume nel suo titolo stesso il primato dato da Schuon all’intelligenza e alla gnosi. Forse per la prima volta il metafisico manifesta qui l’estensione della sua dialettica e s’impegna in una critica metodica delle basi della filosofia classica e moderna, mentre elabora un’ottima epistemologia tradizionale che svilupperà ancor più nei suoi libri futuri.

Η Ασταβάκρα Γκίτα, λιγότερο γνωστή στη Δύση, εκφράζει τις ανώτερες διδασκαλίες των Ουπανισάδων, και ενσωματώνει τη φιλοσοφική σκέψη των σοφών Γιατζναβάλκια και Βαρμαντέβα. Δεν κάνει έκθεση της αλήθειας με λογικό συλλογισμό, αλλά με περιγραφή της μακαριότητας που βιώνει ένας φωτισμένος Άγιος.

is an authoritative version of Musashi’s classic translated and annotated by a modern martial arts master, Kenji Tokitsu. Tokitsu has spent most of his life researching the legendary samurai swordsman and his works, and in this book he illuminates this seminal text, along with several other works by Musashi. These include “The Mirror of the Way of Strategy,­” which Musashi wrote when he was in his twenties; “Thirty-­five Instructions on Strategy,­” and “Forty-­two Instructions on Strategy,­” which were precursors to and “The Way to Be Followed Alone,­” which Musashi wrote just days before his death.

Tokitsu puts all these writings into historical and philosophical context and makes them accessible and relevant to today’s readers and martial arts students.
