  • Laozi (± 580-500 avant notre ère), de son vrai nom Li Er, fut grand scribe de la bibliothèque impériale sous la dynastie des Zhou. Contemporain de Confucius, il est l'auteur du Daodejing, l'un des plus grands classiques de la pensée chinoise. Une tradition dit que le vieil homme, juché sur un buffle noir, se serait présenté aux douanes de Hanguguan, dans la province du Henan, et qu'il aurait laissé à l'officier Yin Xi, en guise d'autorisation de sortie, un manuscrit de cinq mille caractères ? le Canon de la Voie et de la Vertu ?, avant de disparaître dans l'ouest du pays. Une autre version, celle du Zhuang Zi, évoque le grand scribe démissionnant de sa fonction et fuyant la cour décadente des Zhou pour se retirer dans sa région natale, à l'est du pays. Quoi qu'il en soit, la pensée du père du taoïsme est fidèlement transcrite dans cette oeuvre unique laissée à la postérité. La nouvelle traduction de Laure Chen, volontairement épurée et respectueuse de la poésie fractale de la langue originelle, va au coeur de l'écrit et laisse ainsi le texte révéler de lui-même sa profondeur. Avec une préface du professeur Léon Vandermeersch, correspondant à l'Institut de France, directeur d'études à l'École pratique des hautes études et ancien directeur de l'École française d'Extrême-Orient.

    Nachdem Fulcanelli im Jahr 1923 den physischen Stein der Weisen erlangt hatte, betraute er seinen berühmten Schüler, Eugène Canseliet mit der Drucklegung seiner drei Bücher:
    Mysterium der Kathedralen (Erstausg. 1926); Wo Adepten wohnten (Erstausg. 1929) Mysterium der Kathedralen: Die präzise Übertragung der reichen Sprache von Fulcanelli ins Deutsche wurde in engster Zusammenarbeit mit Canseliet's getreuem Schüler Jean Laplace (1949 - 1996) überprüft. Laplace war selbst operativer Alchemist und ein streng traditioneller alchemistischer Autor.
    Mysterium der Kathedralen ist außer für die Jünger der «Kunst des Hermes» auch eine Schatztruhe für Kunsthistoriker, Philosophen, Linguisten, Historiker und ernsthafte Esoteriker. Nun steht das viel zitierte Basiswerk zur hermetischen Symbolik auch deutschsprachigen Liebhabern der Kunst zur Verfügung.
    Wie im MUTUS LIBER benutzt der wichtige Index die traditionell barocken operativen Ausdrücke. Der bibliographische Anhang bringt deutsche Erstausgaben der Traktate, die in dem berühmten Buch erwähnt werden, das nun endlich in moderner und dennoch ganz traditioneller Deutscher Sprache vorliegt.

  • Paramahansa Yogananda's Collected Talks and Essays present in-depth discussions of the vast range of inspiring and universal truths that have captivated millions in his Autobiography of a Yogi. Readers will find these talks alive with the unique blend of all-embracing wisdom, practical encouragement, and love for humanity that have made the author one of our era's most revered and trusted guides to the spiritual life.

    Man's Eternal Quest is a book about God: about God's place in man's life; in his hopes, will, aspirations, accomplishments. Life, man, achievement - all are but manifestations of the one omnipresent Creator, as inseparably dependent on Him as the wave is dependent on the ocean. Paramahansa Yogananda explains why and how man was created by God, and how he is immutably a part of God, and what this means to each one personally. Realization of the oneness of man and his Creator is the whole essence of Yoga. An understanding of man's inescapable need for God, in every aspect of living, removes the otherworldliness from religion and makes knowing God the basis of a scientific and practical approach to life.

  • In this unprecedented masterwork of inspiration, Paramahansa Yogananda takes the reader on a profoundly enriching journey through the four Gospels. Verse by verse, he illumines the universal path to oneness with God taught by Jesus to his immediate disciples but obscured through centuries of misinterpretation: how to become like Christ, how to resurrect the Eternal Christ within one's self.

    This landmark work transcends divisive sectarianism to reveal a unifying harmony underlying all true religions. A groundbreaking synthesis of East and West, it imparts the life-transforming realization that each of us can experience for ourselves the promised Second Coming - awakening of the all-fulfilling Divine Consciousness latent within our souls.

    Yogananda said, «In titling this work The Second Coming of Christ, I am not referring to a literal return of Jesus to earth. He came two thousand years ago and, after imparting a universal path to God's kingdom, was crucified and resurrected; his reappearance to the masses now is not necessary for the fulfillment of his teachings. What is necessary is for the cosmic wisdom and divine perception of Jesus to speak again through each one's own experience and understanding of the infinite Christ Consciousness that was incarnate in Jesus. That will be his true Second Coming.

  • Here is an original synthetic treatise upon the Twelve Aphorisms revealed to a perfect Saint Meikandar. The Tamil word 'Meikandar' means 'Sathya Dharshi' or the 'Truth Seer' who, being a perfect Yogi and a divine Jnani, speaks from within the highest and the purest truth about the three eternal entities - God, Soul and the Universe.

    This book guides the seekers and thinkers of the Eternal Truth, who strive to master the quintessence of the Agama Siddhanta and Tantra works of our ancient sages. Critically viewed, metaphysics deserves a very subtle interpretative medium of expression and our author exquisitely levels his medium to the spiritual interior of higher experience.

  • Un jour Paramahansa Yogananda demanda à Ma Anandamayi [1896-1982] de lui raconter quelque chose sur sa vie :
    Ma : Père, il y a peu chose à dire. Ma conscience ne s'est jamais associée avec ce corps éphémère. Avant de venir sur cette terre, Père, " j'étais la même. " Je devins une femme et pourtant " j'étais la même. " Lorsque la famille dans laquelle j'avais pris naissance fit des arrangements pour que je me marie, " j'étais la même. " Et en face de vous, Père, " je suis la même. " Et même plus tard, lorsque la danse de la création sera devenue pour moi éternité, " Je serai la même. " Cet ouvrage contient plus de 70 superbes photographies [en noir & blanc et en couleur] de Ma, qui furent prises à différentes périodes de sa vie. Chaque photographie est accompagnée d'une citation de son enseignement traduite en trois langues : français, anglais et allemand. On médite devant une photo, mais qu'est-ce qu'une photo ? Du papier, pourtant, une foi pure issue de la méditation, révèlera la présence du Seigneur à travers cette image.
    Le thème central de son enseignement, formulé sous des formes infiniment variées, est le suivant : " Le but suprême de tout être humain est d'aspirer à la réalisation du Soi. Toutes les autres obligations sont secondaires. " Ma Anandamayi vivait une vie centrée sur Dieu, et ce vécu lui-même se ressent à travers ses paroles et ses photographies.

  • About the Bhagavad Gita.
    The Bhagavad Gita has been revered by truth-seekers of both the East and West, yet its deepest meaning, cloaked in allegory, has remained obscure. In God Talks With Arjuna, Paramahansa Yogananda offers a translation and commentary of unparalleled scope and vision.
    Exploring the Gita's psychological, spiritual, and metaphysical depths, he reveals the innermost essence of this majestic scripture while presenting an enlightening and deeply encouraging guide to who we are, why we were created, and our place and purpose in the vast cosmic scheme of things.
    «The words of Lord Krishna to Arjuna in the Bhagavad Gita,» writes Paramahansa Yogananda, «are at once a profound scripture on the science of yoga, union with God, and a textbook for everyday living.» The Great Battle of Life.
    Elucidating on the Gita's primary metaphor of inner battle, Sri Yogananda writes, «From the moment of conception to the surrender of the last breath, man has to fight in each incarnation innumerable battles: biological, hereditary, bacteriological, physiological, climatic, social, ethical, political, sociological, psychological, metaphysical - so many varieties of inner and outer conflicts. Competing for victory in every encounter are the forces of good and evil. The whole intent of the Gita is to align man's efforts on the side of dharma, or righteousness. The ultimate aim is Self-realization, the realization of man's true Self, the soul, as made in the image of God, one with the ever-existing, ever-conscious, ever-new bliss of Spirit.»

    «You are a child of God. What have you to fear?» «There is always a way out of your trouble; and if you take the time to think clearly, to think how to get rid of the cause of your anxiety instead of just worrying about it, you become a master.» «Do you ever think that you have been completely unsettled by circumstances - ruffled, shattered, whipped, lacking power? Banish such thoughts! You have power; you do not use it. You have all the power you need. There is nothing greater than the power of the mind.»
