Ten books for this summer

Posted on | June 8, 2018 | No Comments

Some of you have asked me if I read all the books I post here on the site. I do not. I don’t even think that would be possible in my lifetime because of the number of books. But I have made a selection for myself for this summer to catch up, and I would like to share it with you and hear your comments.

Mastering the core teachings of the BuddhaFirst of all, I have been looking forward to reading ‘Mastering the Core Teachings of the Buddha’ by Daniel M. Ingram again, one of the first books I uploaded here back in 2010. Find it here: https://www.holybooks.com/mastering-the-core-teachings-of-the-buddha/

 

 

Beelzebub Gurdjieff pdf free ebook coverGurdjieff’s work “Beelzebub’s Tales to His Grandson” or “An Objectively Impartial Criticism of the Life of Man” is also on my list. I must admit I have tried several times to start, but it is tough. I have the print version and I will bring it with me on a road trip to the Balkans in a few weeks. Find it here: https://www.holybooks.com/beelzebubs-tales-grandson-gurdjieff/

 

Gitanjali Song OfferingsGitanjali – Song Offerings. Next on the list is one of the latest additions to holybooks.com, the work that paved the way for to the Nobel Prize for Rabindranath Tagore. You can download the poetic masterpiece, Gitanjali – Song Offerings, here: https://www.holybooks.com/gitanjali-song-offerings/

 

 

Samayasara or Nature of Self is a classic Jain discussion about the nature of the self and its relation to karma and moksha, meaning ultimate liberation or enlightenment. Get it here: https://www.holybooks.com/samayasara-or-nature-of-self/

 

 

The desert fathers early christianity

Fathers of the Desert was first published in English in 1867. The book describes the beliefs, lives, and practices of a number of individual desert fathers and groups like the Anchorites. Download it here: https://www.holybooks.com/fathers-of-the-desert-vol-iii/

 

 

The Wisdom of VedantaThe Wisdom of Vedanta with the subtitle “An Introduction To The Philosophy of Nondualism” by Swami Abhayananda is also one of the books that I have had on my list for too long now. Time to read it: https://www.holybooks.com/wisdom-vedanta-introduction-philosophy-nondualism/

 

 

Masnavi-I Ma’navi: The title of Rumi’s masterwork Masnavi-I Ma’navi means “Rhyming Couplets of Profound Spiritual Meaning.” It is a is a poetic collection of rambling anecdotes and stories derived from the Quranhadith sources, and everyday tales. Get your digital copy over here: https://www.holybooks.com/masnavi-manavi-ebook-teachings-rumi/

 

 

Hunger Knut HamsunHunger. And from my own neighborhood, Hunger, by Knut Hamsun. Knut Hamsun was a Norwegian author, who was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1920 – not the least for this work about mental, spiritual and physical decay. If you dare: https://www.holybooks.com/hunger-knut-hamsung/

 

 

Kahlil Gibran novels online pdf ebookSix short stories. Kahlil Gibran is mostly known for his work, The Prophet, and The Madman, but he also wrote some interesting shorter novels. Pure reading pleasure, right here: https://www.holybooks.com/short-stories-kahlil-gibran/

 

 

I am not good at top ten lists, but my SEO-friend says that is what the kids want nowadays. However, I have four candidates for number ten:

Appearance and Reality by F.H. Bradley

 

The Open Secret – by Tony Parson

Human, All Too Human – A Book for Free Spirits – Nietzsche

 

Joyous Cosmology by Alan Watts

I wish you all a Joyous summer :-)
