The Alchemical Body: Siddha Traditions in Medieval India by David Gordon White
English | Feby 15, 1997 | ISBN: 0226894975, 0226894991 | 614 Pages | PDF | 78,1 MB

The Alchemical Body: Siddha Traditions in Medieval India by David Gordon White
The Alchemical Body excavates and centers within its Indian context the lost tradition of the medieval Siddhas. Working from previously unexplored alchemical sources, David Gordon White demonstrates for the first time that the medieval disciplines of Hindu alchemy and hatha yoga were practiced by one and the same people, and that they can be understood only when viewed together. White opens the way to a new and more comprehensive understanding of medieval Indian mysticism, within the broader context of south Asian Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, and Islam.

"White proves a skillful guide in disentangling historical and theoretical complexities that have thus far bedeviled the study of these influential aspects of medieval Indian culture."
-Yoga World

"Anyone seriously interested in finding out more about authentic tantra, original hatha yoga, embodied liberation . . . sacred sexuality, paranormal abilities, healing, and of course alchemy will find White's extraordinary book as fascinating as any Tom Clancy thriller."

The Peoples of Southeast Asia Today: Ethnography, Ethnology, and Change in a Complex Region by Robert L. Winzeler professor emeritus of anthropology University of Nevada
English | 2011-01-16 | ISBN: 0759118620, 0759118639 | PDF | 336 pages | 3,8 MB

The Peoples of Southeast Asia Today: Ethnography, Ethnology, and Change in a Complex Region
The Peoples of Southeast Asia Today offers an anthropological treatment of the ethnography and ethnology of Southeast Asia, covering both the mainland and the insular regions. Based on the proposition that Southeast Asia is a true culture area, the book offers background information on geography, languages, prehistory and history, with a particular emphasis on the role of colonialism and the development of ethnic pluralism. It then turns to classic anthropological topics of interest including modes of adaptation, ways of life, and religion, all illustrated with relevant case studies and all brought up to date to show what is happening now. Students will find well-supported discussions of subjects ranging from the development of agriculture and language dispersals, to fantasy and reality in hunter-gatherer studies, to disputed interpretations of Thai Buddhism and Javanese Islam, to ongoing government efforts to manage religion, create proper citizens, resettle and assimilate indigenous populations, end shifting cultivation and promote modernization.

The Continuity of Madhyamaka and Yogacara in Indian Mahayana Buddhism

Ian Charles Harris, "The Continuity of Madhyamaka and Yogacara in Indian Mahayana Buddhism"
Brill Academic Pub | 1991-08-01 | ISBN: 9004094482 | PDF | 191 pages | 15.73 MB
In the past European scholars have tended to treat both Madhyamaka and Yog c ra as separate and fundamentally opposed trends in Mah y na Buddhist thought. Drawing heavily on early textual evidence this work questions the validity of such a Mah y na schools" hypothesis. By down-playing the late commentorial traditions, the author attempts a general reappraisal of the epistemological and ontological writings of Nagarjuna, Asanga and Vasubandhu.

The Continuity of Madhyamaka and Yogacara in Indian Mahayana Buddhism
He concludes that the overlap in all areas of doctrine is significant, but particularly with respect to the teachings on the levels of truth, the enlightened and unenlightened states, the status of language and the nature of reality.It is hoped that such investigations may provide the basis for a new theory on the proliferation of Indian Mah y na Buddhism as an organic process of assimilation to new audiences, and specific contemporary problems, rather than in the more schismatic manner favoured by past researchers.
