Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche illuminates the path of trekch, or cutting through the confusion of samsara to the primordial purity of the mind's essential nature, based on the atiyoga dzogchen instructions of Paltrul Rinpoche. Three Words That Strike the Vital Point is the famous seminal statement by Garap Dorje that is said to encapsulate all the myriad dzogchen tantras. The key instructions on it by the outstanding nineteenth-century master Paltrul Rinpochethe verses known as "The Special Teaching of Khepa Shri Gyalpo"form the basis for Khyentse Rinpoche's discourse here. These teachings belong to the oral instruction division of atiyoga and explain the path of trekch, or directly cutting through the confusion of samsara to the primordial purity of the nature of mind. In dzogchen, when one has fully recognized that all the confusion of samsara is the expressive power of primordially pure great emptiness, confusion is spontaneously liberated into the primordial purity of mind's original nature. Compassion spontaneously arises, accomplishing the benefit of sentient beings. Khyentse Rinpoche was renowned for his ability to elucidate the dzogchen teachings and to lead students of all backgrounds to deeper experiential realization. His powerful presence shines through the pages of this book.Download Now..

Black women are the single most religious demographic in the United States, yet they are among the poorest, least educated, and least healthy groups in the nation. Drawing on the author's own past experience as an evangelical minister and her present work as a secular counselor and researcher, The Ebony Exodus Project makes a direct connection between the church and the plight of black women. Through interviews with African American women who have left the church, the author reveals the shame and suffering often caused by the churchand the resulting happiness, freedom, and sense of purpose these women have felt upon walking away from it. This book calls on other black women to honestly reflect on their relationship with religion and challenges them to consider that perhaps the answers to their problems rest not inside a church, but in themselves.Download Now..

The Theological Origins of Modernity

Posted on, 19th July, 2016 by admin

Exposing the religious roots of our ostensibly godless age, Michael Allen Gillespie reveals in this landmark study that modernity is much less secular than conventional wisdom suggests. Taking as his starting point the collapse of the medieval world, Gillespie argues that from the very beginning, moderns sought not to eliminate religion but to support a new view of religion and its place in human life. He goes on to explore the ideas of such figures as William of Ockham, Petrarch, Erasmus, Luther, Descartes, and Hobbes, showing that modernity is best understood as a series of attempts to formulate a new and coherent metaphysics or theology.Download Now..
