Significance of Yavneh & Other Essays in Jewish Hellenism
This volume collects thirty essays by Shaye J.D. Cohen. First published between 1980 and 2006, these essays deal with a wide variety of themes and texts: Jewish Hellenism; Josephus; the Synagogue; Conversion to Judaism; Blood and Impurity; the boundary between Judaism and Christianity. What unites them is their philological orientation. Many of these essays are close studies of obscure passages in Jewish and Christian texts.
The essays are united too by their common assumption that the ancient world was a single cultural continuum; that ancient Judaism, in all its expressions and varieties, was a Hellenism; and that texts written in Hebrew share a world of discourse with those written in Greek. Many of these essays are well-known and have been much discussed in contemporary scholarship. Among these are: "The Significance of Yavneh" (the title essay), "Patriarchs and Scholarchs," "Masada: Literary Tradition, Archaeological Remains, and the Credibility of Josephus," "Epigraphical Rabbis," "The Conversion of Antoninus," "Menstruants and the Sacred in Judaism and Christianity," and "A Brief History of Jewish Circumcision Blood."

The Search for Hidden Sacred Knowledge
Language: English | EPUB / MOBI | ISBN-10: 1940265231 | 2014 | 350 pages | 0.3 MB / 0.5 MB
In this new book, Dolores Cannon continues the story begun in two of her previous books, Keepers of the Garden and The Custodians. In those books, she explained how the Extraterrestrials developed life on Earth, how they came to be regarded as gods and explored the complicated relationship between humans and ETs.

The Search for Hidden Sacred Knowledge
This book focuses on the secret knowledge that has been passed from generation to generation after the Extraterrestrials left earth. For centuries, ET wisdom has been protected by the few who belonged to the secret Mystery schools, where a few initiates were chosen to learn and practice the various techniques. The knowledge had to be safeguarded and protected. They knew that it must not die.

Down through countless centuries this knowledge was protected and shared only with the chosen few. Wars have been fought and terrible injustices have been committed in attempts to gain access to this knowledge. Those with the knowledge often died rather than let it fall into the wrong hands. Now it is no longer reserved strictly for oracles in temples, hermits in caves, or wise men cloistered in hidden schools. It is returning to our time and is now available for all to learn.

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."
-Georg Feuerstein, Yoga Journal

Buddhist Hagiography in Early Japan: Images of Compassion in the Gyoki Tradition

Buddhist Hagiography in Early Japan: Images of Compassion in the Gyoki Tradition By Jonathan Morris Augustine
Publisher: Routle..dge 2005 | 184 Pages | ISBN: 0415322456 | PDF | 2 MB

Buddhist Hagiography in Early Japan: Images of Compassion in the Gyoki Tradition
Hagiographies or idealized biographies which recount the lives of saints, bodhisattvas and other charismatic figures have been the meeting place for myth and experience. In medieval Europe, the 'lives of saints' were read during liturgical celebrations and the texts themselves were treated as sacred objects. In Japan, it was believed that those who read the biographies of lofty monks would acquire merit. Since hagiographies were written or compiled by 'believers', the line between fantasy and reality was often obscured. This study of the bodhisattva Gyoki – regarded as the monk who started the largest social welfare movement in Japan – illustrates how Japanese Buddhist hagiographers chose to regard a single monk's charitable activities as a miraculous achievement that shaped the course of Japanese history.

Sacred Mushroom of Visions: Teonanácatl: A Sourcebook on the Psilocybin Mushroom by Ralph Metzner
English | July 25, 2005 | ISBN: 1594770441 | 293 Pages | PDF | 40,4 MB
"A compilation of scientific information, historical lore, and experiential reports about the magical psilocybe mushrooms. . . . It is sure to be treasured for years to come."
–Andrew Weil, M.D., author of The Natural Mind – A New Way of Looking at Drugs and the Higher Consciousness and Spontaneous Healing

"An outstanding comprehensive gathering of vital information from the psychedelic world."
–Myron Stolaroff, author of The Secret Chief and From Thanatos to Eros

Teonanácatl was the name given to the visionary mushrooms used in ancient Meso­american shamanic ceremonies, mushrooms that contain psilocybin, the psychoactive agent identified by Swiss chemist Albert Hofmann, the discoverer of LSD. The rediscovery of these visionary mushrooms by the Mazatec healer Maria Sabina and ­mycologist R. Gordon Wasson ignited a worldwide mushroom culture that inspired the consciousness revolution of the 1960s.

This book describes in vivid detail the consciousness-expanding experiences of psychoactive mushroom users–from artists to psychologists–and the healing visionary inspiration they received. It provides firsthand accounts of studies performed in the controversial Harvard Psilocybin Project, including the Concord Prison study and the Good Friday study. It describes how the use of the psilocybe mushroom spread from the mountains of Mexico into North America, Asia, and Europe by seekers of ­consciousness-­expanding experiences. It also details how psilocybin has been used since the 1960s in psychotherapy, prisoner rehabilitation, the enhancement of creativity, and the induction of mystical experiences and is being studied as a treatment for obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). In this book, over thirty contributors share their expertise on the chemical, biological, cultural, psychological, and experiential dimensions of psilocybin mushrooms.

Andrija Puharich – Tesla, Water Car, Aliens ,Psychedelics, ELF, Telepathy [16 mp4, 7 mp3, 23 pdf]
Andrija Puharich – (born Karel Puharic, February 19, 1918 – January 3, 1995) was a medical and parapsychological researcher, medical inventor and author, known as the person who brought Israeli Uri Geller and Dutch-born Peter Hurkos (1911-1988) to the United States for scientific investigation. Born in Chicago, Illinois, he was the son of poor Croatian immigrants. His father had entered the U. S. in 1912 as a stowaway. At home Karel's parents always called him "Andrija," which apparently wasn't his name at birth but just his parents' nickname for him. When Karel, as a young boy, started attending school, his parents enrolled him under the name "Henry Karl Puharich," feeling he would be more easily accepted with that name than with the foreign-sounding name "Karel Puharic."[1] Thereafter he often signed his name as "Henry Karl Puharich." He didn't start using his nickname "Andrija" as his first name until sometime in the later part of his life. In 1947, Puharich graduated from the Northwestern University School of Medicine. His residency was completed at Permanente Hospital in California, where he specialized in Internal Medicine. Puharich was a U.S. Army officer in the early 1950s. During that time, he was in and out of Edgewood Arsenal Research Laboratories and Fort Detrick, meeting with various high-ranking officers and officials, primarily from the Pentagon, CIA, and Naval Intelligence.[2] The Edgewood Arsenal is currently officially called the Edgewood Area of Aberdeen Proving Ground.

Of his many books, Puharich wrote a supportive biography of Uri Geller, a paranormal case he investigated with the help of Itzhak Bentov, among others. Before that he investigated favorably the Brazilian psychic surgeon Ze Arigo. Puharich also investigated Mexican psychic surgeon Pachita. One of his books is The Sacred Mushroom: Key to the Door of Eternity, describes his work with psychics. In 1960, Puharich investigated materialization seances at Camp Chesterfield and discovered the use of cheesecloth being used to fake ectoplasm.[3] Two of the most famous of Puharich's over 50 patents were devices that assist hearing – the "Means For Aiding Hearing" U.S. Patent 2,995,633 and "Method And Apparatus For Improving Neural Performance In Human Subjects By Electrotherapy" U.S. Patent 3,563,246". He was also granted a U.S. Patent 4,394,230 in 1983 for a "Method and Apparatus for Splitting Water Molecules." His research included studying the influence of extremely low frequency ELF electromagnetic wave emissions on the mind, and he invented several devices allegedly blocking or converting ELF waves to prevent harm. Puharich claimed he had investigated the effects of a low frequency radiation beam that the Soviet Union had been testing. According to Puharich the beam was based on the work of Nikola Tesla and could be used as a weapon to control people. He also claimed the beam was responsible for climatic disturbances, earthquakes, Legionnaires' disease and violent riots. Puharich wrote Tesla was contacted several times by extraterrestrials.[4] Dr. Andrija Puharich played himself on Perry Mason, in the episode, "The Case of the Meddling Medium," in 1961. He conducted a series of three tests to help determine the ESP of Mason's client accused of murder. During the third test the actual murderer was exposed. While working in Mexico, Puharich married and was later divorced by the future founder and director of The American Visionary Art Museum, Rebecca Alban Hoffberger.

Hermans – Memories of a Maverick, Andrija Puharich (1998)

This book is about the richness, the excitement, the ecstasies and the agonies of the life of Dr. Andrija Puharich. Hampered by poverty, scarred by personal tragedies, he etched his way doggedly from football star, and outstanding student through medical school, on to establish The Round Table Foundation in Maine for parapsychological research, to medical discoveries, resulting in over 75 patents. A maverick, a dedicated researcher, a rebel scientist, Andrija Puharich was both scorned by colleagues, and revered and encouraged by those gifted with foresightedness, including Aldous Huxley. His research expeditions ran the full gamut from initial experiments with Eileen Garrett and Peter Hurkos in the Faraday Cage, to filmed forays into the secrets of the sacred mushroom rites of the Chatino Indians of Mexico, to Brazil to do investigative research on the healer Pachita and Arigo, the famous "surgeon of the rusty knife", to the Kahuna priests of Hawaii, to Israel to study Uri Geller, and the long lasting investigation into the mysteries of UFO's. Andrija Puharich was never satisfied with one-dimensional observation. He participated in the secret rites, partook of the sacred mushroom, and let himself be operated on by Arigo and Pachita. He was a foremost authority on E.L.F. (extremely low frequency magnetic fields) pollution, and its effects on human organisms. As a medical doctor, physicist and inventor, he is in every "Who's Who" of noteworthy scientists. He conducted scientific research of Nobel prize quality, and published numerous scientific papers. During his final years, Dr. Puharich dedicated all his time developing countermeasures against – the genetic damage of E.L.F. signals. He developed a comprehensive theory of the state of well being based on a central frequency of near-8Hz for the homeostatic control of cell division. He was probably the first to detail the scope for further research with dolphins involving novel electromagnetic mechanisms (including scalars), since then followed by top researchers worldwide. He described, on the basis of experimental research, an advanced theory of subatomic physics. He successfully conducted reversal of tumors with superoxide anions and ozone. Being considered too far out, or too ahead of his time, he was by then largely ignored by Academia and earlier colleagues. His passing means the loss of a quiet, sincere explorer of the reaches of human possibilities.

3) For The Record #170 – Plan Nine from Berchtesgaden (1999)

FTR #170 With the end of the millennium drawing near, it is increasingly important to be aware of possible political manipulation of people's apocalyptic fears and hopes. In that context, a channeling cult called "The Nine" bears particular examination. Purporting to be the "Ennead" (the nine gods of ancient Egypt), they have links to many different individuals and institutions including: Andrija Puharich (connected to the CIA's mind control programs of the 50s and 60s), Russians associated with the Gorbachev regime in the former USSR, the Esalen Institute and numerous New Age organizations. This organization espouses a racist, ariosophist philosophy that maintains that all of the Earth's peoples are descended from The Nine (and, consequently, superior) except for the black race (who are, consequently, inferior.) With the New Age movement growing and with 42% of American college graduates believing that we have been visited by space aliens, the danger that the views of The Nine could achieve widespread acceptance and lead to genocide is not one that should be too readily cast aside. (It should be noted that there is convincing evidence that so-called UFOs are real, but do not come from outer space. Should they be deployed in conjunction with other types of secret technology, the views of The Nine could be reinforced in a very convincing way.) As noted above, Andrija Puharich, whose organization has done much to promote The Nine, was involved with the CIA mind-control programs. Those programs were initiated from a research base developed by the Nazis in World War II. The program concludes with a brief look at Savitri Devi, a post-war Nazi mystic who has achieved considerable influence in the New Age movement. (Recorded on 9/19/99.)

Engaging Ancient Maya Sculpture at Piedras Negras, Guatemala

Megan E. O'Neil, "Engaging Ancient Maya Sculpture at Piedras Negras, Guatemala"
English | ISBN: 080614257X | 2012 | 256 pages | PDF | 158 MB

Engaging Ancient Maya Sculpture at Piedras Negras, Guatemala
Now shrouded in Guatemalan jungle, the ancient Maya city of Piedras Negras flourished between the sixth and ninth centuries, when its rulers erected monumental limestone sculptures carved with hieroglyphic texts and images of themselves and family members, advisers, and captives. In , Megan E. O'Neil offers new ways to understand these stelae, altars, and panels by exploring how ancient Maya people interacted with them.

These monuments, considered sacred, were one of the community's important forms of cultural and religious expression. Stelae may have held the essence of rulers they commemorated, and the objects remained loci for reverence of those rulers after they died. Using a variety of evidence,O'Neil examines how the forms, compositions, and contexts of the sculptures invited people to engage with them and the figures they embodied looks at these monuments not as inert bearers of images but as palpable presences that existed in real space at specific historical moments. Her analysis brings to the fore the material and affective force of these powerful objects that were seen, touched, and manipulated in the past.

O'Neil investigates the monuments not only at the moment of their creation but also in later years and shows how they changed over time. She argues that the relationships among sculptures of different generations were performed in processions, through which ancient Maya people integrated historical dialogues and ancestral commemoration into the landscape.

With the help of more than 160 illustrations, O'Neil reveals these sculptures' continuing life histories, which in the past century have included their fragmentation and transformation into commodities sold on the international art market. Shedding light on modern-day transposition and display of these ancient monuments, O'Neil's study contributes to ongoing discussions of cultural patrimony.
