Karma and Creativity
Karma and Creativity (June 1986)

By stressing the 'creativity' aspect of karma, and tracing it from the RVeda through the Upanis, SamYogavasis and the Gita, a clear vision of karma as non-deterministic is presented. This is a welcome redress...(Read More)
 
 
The Concise Yoga Vasistha
The Concise Yoga Vasistha (June 1985)
Swami Venkatesananda - Translator
Christopher Key Chapple - Introduction

"It is really quite a readable translation, and a good abridgement of an extremely long text.

It is certainly far and away the best thing available on this text, a text that never should have been neglected as it has been and never would have, had a translation as good as this been available." -- Wendy D. O'Flaherty
