About the Author:

Barry McDonald's authoritative voice on the world's religions has been formed by a combination of academic study and first hand contact with various sacred traditions throughout the world. He received his undergraduate education at Goddard College and his graduate degree at Indiana University. The six months that he spent in the Middle East in 1973 began a series of life long contacts with authentic representatives of most of the world's great religions, including travels to the Middle East, Asia, North Africa, Europe and the American West. Thomas Yellowtail, the venerable Crow medicine man and Sun Dance chief, adopted McDonald into the Crow tribe.

He is a published poet and has edited Every Branch in Me: Essays on the Meaning of Man, in the Perennial Philosophy series and is in the process of editing, with Patrick Laude, Music of the Sky: An Anthology of Sacred Poetry, scheduled for publication in the Fall of 2003 in the Treasures of the World's Religions Series. His writing style combines the lyrical beauty of a poet, the penetrating metaphysical understanding of a scholar, and the personal insights of a spiritual seeker.

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

From the Lamp of Non-dual Knowledge, Chapter 6 of , Annihilation of Latencies. (Vasanaksaya):

7. Wise son, now that you have known what need be known from them, you should efface the impressions left by your studies. D: What constitutes these impressions? M: It is the inclination of the mind always to study vedantic literature, to understand, the meanings of the texts, to commit them to memory and constantly be thinking of them. Since this inclination obstructs meditation, a wise man must overcome it with every effort. Next the latencies connected with the world (lokavasana) must be eliminated. 8. D: What are these latencies? M: To think, this is my country, this is my family pedigree and this is the tradition. Should any one praise or censure any of these, the reactions of the mind denote the latencies connected with the world. Give them up. Later on, give up the latencies connected with the body also, (dehavasana).

From the First Section of Kaivalya Navaneeta

14. After eagerly saluting his Master, he stood up and sobbed out his heart, saying "O Lord! I have suffered long the torture or worldly life, which is after all so false! Gracious Master, save me by tearing off the cords which bind me to the five sheaths, so that my heart may be at peace!"

19 and 20. "Look here, my son! He who has forgotten his true nature is alternately born and dies, turning round and round in the unceasing wheel of time, like a feather caught up in a whirlwind, until he realised the true nature of the Self. If he comes to see the individual self and its substratum, the Overself, then be becomes the substratum, i.e., Brahman, and escapes rebirths. Should you know yourself no harm will befall you. As you asked I have told you this."

51. The question then arises: Whereon does the superimposition rest when the substratum is completely hidden? And how can there be any superimposition if the substratum is not hidden? "(The answer is:) The substratum is twofold, general and particular, of which the general substratum remains continuous and unbroken. Transient superimposition is particular. 52. In the world, the common substratum 'This is' can never be veiled; but only the particular identity - 'This is a rope.' Similarly with the jiva, ignorance does not veil the substratum - 'I AM'; but it veils the specific knowledge - 'I am Brahman'."

Descrizione libro World Wisdom Books, United States, 2005. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Many people have found that the Advaita Bodha Deepika (Lamp of Non-Dual Knowledge) is the clearest, easiest to understand summary of the system of Hindu thought known as Advaita Vedanta. The Lamp of Non-Dual Knowledge is in the form of a dialogue between a seeker and his spiritual master, with the seeker posing many probing questions about the nature of existence, the universe, and humankind. Of course, these fundamental questions still puzzle people, and so these clear answers from the ancient past often strike home with readers today. The Kaivalya Navaneeta (The Cream of Liberation) is a classical Tamil book attributed to Tandavaraya Swami. It is a widely known Advaita classic. The Cream of Liberation outlines the basic philosophical principles of Advaita Vedanta and reviews these in a way intended to make them very clear to readers, again in the form of a dialogue between a master and devotee. Both of these books were admired by Sri Ramana Maharshi, and were recommended to those wanting to understand the non-dualistic spiritual path of Advaita Vedanta. Bringing these two short texts together in a single volume offers the reader the opportunity to grasp fundamental concepts of Advaita Vedanta within the evocative setting of ancient sages instructing their disciples on questions that still intrigue people today.
