Searching for: "Unknown"

  • J. Donald Walters

    The Path is a fascinating story of one man's search for the truth. J. Donald Walters (also known as Swami Kriyananda) recounts how, as a young man, he examined and discarded as false many of the promises offered by modern society. Gradually he realized that lasting human happiness comes not from outer success but from deepening spiritual awareness. Eventually, his searching brought him to the door of one of the spiritual giants of this century, Paramhansa Yogananda (Autobiography of a Yogi). What ensued was Donald Walter's spiritual training under Yogananda, who showed him a clear path to the attainment of spiritual ideals through the practice of the science of deep yoga meditation.

  • Swami Kriyananda

    Yogananda was one of the most significant spiritual teachers of the 20th century. Since his classic Autobiography of a Yogi was first published in 1946, its popularity has increased steadily throughout the world. Great teachers work through their students, and Yogananda was no exception. As Swami Kriyananda wrote for in the introduction to this audiobook, "After I'd been with him a year and a half, he began urging me to write down the things he was saying during informal conversations." The Essence of Self-Realization, nearly 300 sayings rich with spiritual wisdom, is the fruit of that labor of love. The scope of this book is vast - it offers as complete an explanation of life's true...read more

    The story of a mechanically inclined farm boy, who turned the automobile from a toy for the wealthy, into a necessity for modern life. This biography approaches the story of Henry Ford in the context of his world. For example, existing roads were as much a factor on cars, as the car was on the advance of roads. The farmer would not risk his livelihood on a Ford internal combustion tractor, until the engine proved itself in his Sunday car. And the public held suspicion of mass production, until Ford showed it could provide value, quality, and good wages. CONTENTS: 1. A Lone Pioneer 2. The Beginning of an Industry 3.

  • L. Ron Hubbard

    A Postulate Out of a Golden Age Tyrannies are sown at times when nobody is very watchful, where everybody has a full stomach, where everything is calm, nothing much appears on the surface. And then tyrannies show up and become very obvious when individuals, growing a little hungrier, a little less possessed of production, suddenly notice that there is somebody saying they mustn't talk, somebody saying they mustn't have opinions. - L. Ron Hubbard To overcome tyranny is to win freedom as a people, a nation or even Mankind. Yet to benefit fully from their liberties, each man and woman must also be free-as individuals. In regard to freedom as a nation, here is the remarkable...read more

    Conquest of the Physical Universe Life is engaged upon the acquisition, destruction, creation, so on and so on, of matter, energy, space and time. Life is engaged on a forward conquest, in other words. - L. Ron Hubbard In his lifelong quest to uncover the answers to life and Man, Ron discovered that all life forms, from the lowest to the highest, are motivated by a single command: Survive! Yet questions still remained. What exactly is life and how does it accomplish its purpose of survival? Is life merely live matter? Or does it contain another quality altogether? Thus Ron set out to isolate and identify the very essence of life itself. And in successfully achieving that...read more

    The Control of Hysteria Man can be and can be made to be, by our technologies, more civilized than he is, happier than he is, more capable of advancing than he has been. - L. Ron Hubbard Since the deployment of the first atomic weapons, people everywhere have lived with the possibility that everything they hold dear-their lives, their families, their careers and even the human species itself-could be extinguished in a few moments of devastation. Such consequences would be so overwhelming that, for many, the only defense is a hope it will never happen. Yet as the number of countries with atomic and nuclear weapons has risen and an international black market actively trades...read more
