What with the thickening clouds thundering in triumph, Dhruva woke up from his siesta, and by the time he moved into the portico of his palatial bungalow at 9, Castle Hills, the skies had opened up to shower its sprawling lawns.

Addendum to Evolution : Origins of the World

By: BS Murthy

This is a speculative theory about the origins of the world and the evolution of humans and other species as well as vegetation on earth.

Creation vs. Evolution ‘One might approach this postulation as an addendum to evolution for it comes in the wake of the great works of the past. It would seem logical that any proposition about evolution cannot bypass the idea of creation, buttressed with a religious belief by those closer to the beginnings of life. Just the same, though all religions propagate the word that God created the world, nevertheless their scriptures differ about the way he went about it. Give...

Sacred Books

By: M. Winternitz

THE period covered by the inception, the publication, and the completion of the Sacred Books of the East exactly coincides with the thirty-four years that I have spent in Oxford. When I matriculated, Professor Max Muller, the editor of the series, was about to begin work on the first volume, which appeared while I was still an undergraduate. I lost no time in making his acquaintance, for it was the influence of one of his works that had stimulated me to begin under Pro...

Habeltt sua lata libelli-not only after they have been published, but sometimes even before they are printed. It was in the spring of 1894 that the late Professor Max Muller first suggested to me that I should compile a General Index of the names and subject-matter for the complete series of the Sacred Books of the East. Such an Index, he thought, would be a great help to all students of the Sacred Books of tile East, and of the greatest value for the study of the history of religions.

Kahea Loko

By: The Pacific American Foundation

Kahea Loko is "the call of the pond. " From the ocean currents surging through the stone-walled channels to the excited cries of haumana (students) discovering fishpond life, the loko ia (fishpond) calls to us in many ways. From the broad perspective of the ahupuaa (major land division), the loko ia helps us to appreciate the connection between land and sea and to experience the rhythm of tides and seasons. From an intimate perspective, the pond leads us to discover h...

"Let that which is unknown become known. " John Papa Ii (1959) Let us not allow the broken walls of the loko ia (fishponds) to separate us from that which was known and practiced in the past. The foundations of the walls are still evident, as are the wisdom and knowledge of our kupuna. The reflections of the sun, moon, and stars upon our waters are as old as time. Let these be beacons of light to guide our haumana (students) to these ponds of knowledge. Let us help ...

Guide for Hindu Missionaries

By: Siddhant Bhartee

Hinduism is the oldest faith in the world. It is also the largest faith in the world with followers worldwide but as Hinduism does not believe in official conversion, there is no record to prove this. We have seen a sustained movement against Hinduism in Bharat (India) recently by Communists, Liberals, Secularists who have aligned with the Islamists and Christian-missionaries against the last bastion of truth in the world. This pamphlet aims at providing an ideological b...

I.Conversion 1. Messaging - Hinduism to the neophyte is vast and confusing. Too many branches of philosophy for the intellectual seeker. Too many gods for the literal seeker. To make it simple, the message needs to be condensed to a single sentence. “Say ‘Krishna’ 4 times with complete love today and He will forgive every sin you do today.” It’s a masterstroke. “Say ‘Krishna’ 4 times with complete love and He will forgive every sin you do today...

SLOVENIAN: Povej mi nekaj… Si srečen s Paulom? Srečen? Pogledal me je, kot bi začel nenadoma govoriti slovensko. Skomignil je z rameni: Ne vem. O tem se ne sprašujem. To ni pomembno. Razmišljam o čutih. Na novo moram izumiti ljubezen, doseči neznano z razdiranjem vseh čutov, biti videc, če hočem biti največji pesnik. Ali pa gre pot… čisto drugam? Samo poezija je važna. Saj to veš. Antoni, je dodal, kot bi me hotel prijazno okrcati. Misliš, da bi te lahko kaj odvrnil...

Leopardi and Schopenhauer : an English translation of "Leonardi e ...

By: Francesco De Sanctis; Thomas Haskell Simpson

possibly the first English translation of this interesting work by great literary critic Francesco De Sanctis, one of the fathers of the Italian national independence movement, later the young nation's Minister of Public Instruction, and author of a crucial history of Italian literature.

"...Hegel is the greatest sinner, because the public’s head can't make room for intellectual intuition. With his dialectical process, Hegel gave an appearance of harmony to this philosophical monstrosity. He was its designer and architect, making the original sin durable. So Schopenhauer tore him to pieces. Charlatan, insipid, stupid, nauseating, an ignoramus whose shamelessness was touted as wisdom by cowardly followers; the true author of our century’s intellectua...
