“Legs” Larry Smith in Conversation with Geoffrey Giuliano

Geoffrey Giuliano and Bonzo Dog man “Legs” Larry Smith had a professional relationship that spanned six wry, weird years in the early 1980s. Together they crafted a cockeyed film script for Giuliano’s firm, intended for George Harrison’s Handmade Films, entitled Half of Larry’s Lunch, which, unfortunately, never made it to the screen and was eventually dropped. With concentrated work on the project conducted in pastoral Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire, and Toronto, the two men spent untold months living and working together. Only recently was the interview and other material used in the production of this unique audiobook discovered after being lost for over three decades. With a lively, fairly bizarre interview between the two, an oddly amusing collection of Henley street interviews conducted by Geoffrey, and other Giuliano-penned musical odds and ends, here is a rare inside look at the unlikely relationship between these two talented men but also a breakdown of the creative process in its most primal form.
Larry Smith, often known as “Legs” Larry Smith (born 18 January 1944) is the former drummer of the comedy satirical rock group the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band.

A Children’s Treasury Of Christmas Stories

11-year-old actor Eden Giuliano presents a brand new line of exciting children’s stories from Icon! The now classic Christmas tales by Charles Dickens were written at a time when the British were exploring and re-evaluating past Christmas traditions, including carols and newer customs such as Christmas trees. He was influenced by the experiences of his own youth and by the Christmas stories of other authors including Washington Irving and Douglas Jerrold. Dickens had written three Christmas stories prior to the novella, A Christmas Carol, and was inspired following a visit to the Field Lane Ragged School, one of several establishments for London’s street children. The treatment of the poor and the ability of a selfish man to redeem himself by transforming into a more sympathetic character are the key themes of the story. There is long standing discussion among academics as to whether this story, in particular, was a fully secular story, or if it is indeed, a Christian allegory. Charles Dickens captured the zeitgeist of the mid-Victorian revival of the Christmas holiday. Dickens freely acknowledged the influence of the modern Western observance of Christmas, and later inspired several aspects of Christmas, including family gatherings, seasonal food and drink, dancing, games and a festive generosity of spirit.

A Confession

Leo Tolstoy’s “A Confession,” written in 1882 shortly after a life-altering spiritual crisis, is a brutally sincere reflection on life, morality, and the nature of faith. Tolstoy describes in great detail the process by which he lost his faith in established Christian churches, the meaninglessness of wealth and fame, the agony of acute depression, and how he overcame misery and dread through personal study of the teachings of Jesus Christ. Along the way, he contrasts the artificial faith and arrogance of educated people with the genuine faith and humility of the Russian peasant. This work, and others of its ilk, were aggressively censored by the Tsarist regime and directly led to Tolstoy being excommunicated by the Russian Orthodox Church.

A Welcome Death Edgar Allan Poe – Stories Of A Tortured Mind

Edgar Allan Poe was one of the most important and influential American writers of the 19th century. He was the first author to try to make a professional living as a writer. Much of Poe’s work was inspired by the events that happened around him. His poetry alone would ensure his spot in the literary canon. Poe’s notable verses range from the early masterpiece “To Helen” to the dark, mysterious “Ulalume.” From “The Raven,” which made him world-famous upon its publication in 1845, to “Annabel Lee,” the posthumously published eulogy for a maiden “in a kingdom by the sea.” Most famously, Poe completely transformed the genre of the horror story with his masterful tales of psychological depth and insight not envisioned in the genre before his time and scarcely seen in it since. Stories like “The Tell-Tale Heart,” “The Cask of Amontillado,” “The Pit and the Pendulum,” “The Masque of the Red Death,” and “The Fall of the House of Usher” reveal Poe’s talent at its height. He was an early pioneer in the genre of science fiction. Poe was fascinated by the science of his time, and he often wrote stories about new inventions. Poe too is credited with inventing the modern detective story with “The Murders in the Rue Morgue.” His concept of deductive reasoning, which he called “ratiocination” inspired countless authors, most famous among them Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, creator of Sherlock Holmes.

Although no writings by him survive, numerous tales credited to him were gathered across the centuries and in many languages in a storytelling tradition that continues to this day. Many of the tales are characterized by animals and inanimate objects that speak, solve problems, and generally have human characteristics. Scattered details of Aesop’s life can be found in ancient sources, including Aristotle, Herodotus, and Plutarch. 

After London

Jefferies’ novel can be seen as an early example of “post-apocalyptic fiction.” After some sudden and unspecified catastrophe has depopulated England, the countryside reverts to nature, and the few survivors to a quasi-medieval way of life. The first part of the book, “The Relapse into Barbarism”, is the account by some later historian of the fall of civilisation and its consequences, with a loving description of nature reclaiming England. The second part, “Wild England”, is an adventure set many years later in the wild landscape and society. The book is not without its flaws (notably the abrupt and unsatisfying ending) but is redeemed by the quality of the writing, particularly the unnervingly prophetic descriptions of the post-apocalyptic city and countryside.

Here is his rags to riches then back to rags story as told by himself, in an honest, enlightening, often shocking, sometimes humorous look back on the first nineteen years of his often unlikely life and times. This first installment of his autobiography focuses on the years 1953 to 1971 and his trek from small town kid, to all American 1960’s hippie, to enthusiastic young seeker of Lord Krishna in the early years of the Hare Krishna Movement. While this is uniquely Geoffrey’s story it is also a similar tale to many who lived through the same era. If the child is the father of the man then this collection of cutting memories explains a great deal about the bold, creative character Giuliano later became. There are many words here – many of them bad. Introduction / Dr. Timothy Leary.

Barnaby Rudge

Barnaby Rudge is a historical novel by British novelist Charles Dickens. Barnaby Rudge was one of two novels (the other was The Old Curiosity Shop) Dickens published in his short-lived (1840–1841) weekly serial Master Humphrey’s Clock. This book is largely set during the Gordon Riots of 1780. Barnaby Rudge was the fifth of Dickens’ novels to be published. It had initially been planned to appear as his first, but changes of publisher led to many delays, and it first appeared in serial form in the Clock from February to November 1841. This was Dickens’ first historical novel. His only other is A Tale of Two Cities (1859), also set in revolutionary times

Barry Lyndon

Barry Lyndon is a picaresque novel by William Makepeace Thackeray, first published as a serial in Fraser’s Magazine in 1844, about a member of the Irish gentry trying to become a member of the English aristocracy. Thackeray, who based the novel on the life and exploits of the Anglo-Irish rake and fortune-hunter Andrew Robinson Stoney, later reissued it under the title The Memoirs of Barry Lyndon, Esq. The novel is narrated by Lyndon himself, who functions as a quintessentially unreliable narrator. The novel was adapted by Stanley Kubrick into his 1975 film Barry Lyndon.

Be Hear Now; Remembering Baba Ram Das; The Lost Lecture Series

Dr. Richard Alpert, a former Harvard professor and Timothy Leary cohort, was an icon of the hippie, LSD-fueled revolution of the 1960s. Thereafter, on a trip to India – like Clark Kent changing into Superman – he became the much-beloved spiritual teacher Baba Ram Das. His 1970s’ iconic book Be Here Now turned on a generation to the deep, non-sectarian spirituality within us all. Author Jagannatha Dasa became friends with Ram Das in the early ’70s and traveled across America, playing Indian drums at his speaking engagements. During that time, the two discussed the publication of some of his lectures, but nothing was ever done, and the two lost touch. Now, finally, after all these years, Jagannatha Dasa keeps his promise to his old friend, publishing this original audio history of one of our most inspired and cherished spiritual teachers.

Beasley’s Christmas Party

A melodramatic folksy Christmas story, a little like Dickens – with a Tiny Tim, but also with some romance. Tarkington’s writings are very much set in his early 1900s American culture. We are meant to sympathize with the crippled child but not even notice the slights to the black servants. Still, Tarkington promotes kindness and uses a milder style of humor than many authors of his day.

A prolific writer, he published widely over the course of his life. Born to a wealthy family in Royal Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, Crowley rejected his parents’ fundamentalist Christian faith to pursue an interest in Western esotericism. He was educated at Trinity College at the University of Cambridge, where he focused his attentions on mountaineering and poetry. Some biographers allege that here he was recruited into a British intelligence agency, further suggesting that he remained a spy throughout his life. In 1898 he joined the esoteric Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn.

Ben Hur A Tale Of The Christ

Ben-Hur is a story of two very different heroes. Judah Ben-Hur, a prince of Jerusalem, is involved in an accident to the Roman procurator which is taken to be intentional. He is seized and sent to the fleet as a galley-slave, while his family is imprisoned and the family goods confiscated. When Ben-Hur saves the fleet captain from drowning after his ship is sunk in a fight with pirates, that officer adopts him as son and heir. With Roman training, Ben-Hur distinguishes himself in the arena and the palistrae and appears to be on the way to high military command. With the help of a faithful family retainer and a generous Arab sheik, Ben-Hur is enabled to take part in a widely touted chariot race, where one of the other charioteers is the boyhood friend who connived to punish him for the accident and split his estate.

Benito Mussolini The Fascist Doctrine

Benito Mussolini born on July 29, 1883 who went by the nickname “Il Duce” (“the Leader”), was a deeply unbalanced tyrannical Italian dictator who created the dreaded Fascist Party in 1919. Eventually, he held all power in Italy as the country’s prime minister from 1922 to 1943. An ardent socialist as a youth, Mussolini followed in his father’s political footsteps but was expelled by the party for his overt support of World War I. As an evil dictator during World War II (even murdering his own son by lethal injection) he greatly overextended his forces and was eventually killed by his own people in Mezzegra, Italy. Here, for the first time, are the words of the great dictator himself in his twisted manifesto on the political movement he started and is still so feared to this very day.

Beware of Beatles Worship and other Peculiarities 2019

When the Beatles first came to our attention in a big way in 1964 it was obvious they were a phenomena to reckon with. History changers in the form of four shaggy haired young men who certainly knew how to carry a tune. Beatlemania swept the planet and the names John, Paul, George, and Ringo became household words. Unlike the Rolling Stones who just keep on going the Beatles broke up in 1970 but there is an international league of devoted fans who still spend an inordinate amount of their lifetimes thinking about, studying, listening to, and yes, even worshiping the Beatles to this day – some 50 years after they decided to go there separate ways. Geoffrey Giuliano has written 24 books on the group and was friendly with George Harrison. Obviously, he knows the subject well – but now that he sees fans in their 50s, 60s, 70s, and yes,even 80s, still clinging to the group so vehemently he wonders in this unique audio rant if it’s really such a good idea.

Beyond Life and Death; The Secret Yoga of Ghosts; Meher Baba, Bhaktivedanta Swami, Paramhamsa Yogananda and Swami Vivekananda

Death – it comes to us all. it is a sacrifice for the good life we lead at the end of our long fortuitous road. Or is it? For millenniums the yogis of India following the ancient Vedic path have clearly spoken about what we call in the west- life after death.To the unenlightened materialist life begins with birth and ends with the final inevitable dissolution of the gross material body. But to the enlightened ones ordinary life and death are seen ias nothing particularly special – and at most the unclouded end of the infinite beginning. It is true that some of the more virtuous and godly among us may escape the never ending wheel of repeated birth and death however most are commanded to return to this material world by the process of reincarnation, or if they are particularly unlucky hover around this gross material sphere for untold eons as homeless, restless, disembodied, hopeless, spirits. It is of these unfortunate souls to whom we address this most unique Icon audiobook presentation. Here for the first time is the secret yoga of the ghostly realms.

Black Beauty

Black Beauty is a fictional autobiographical memoir told by a horse, who recounts many tales, both of cruelty and kindness. The title page of the first edition states that it was “Translated from the Original Equine by Anna Sewell.” It was composed in the last years of her life, during which she was confined to her house as an invalid. After its publication in 1877, Sewell lived just long enough to see her first and only novel become an immediate bestseller, as well as it encouraging the better treatment of many cruelly-treated animals. Although initially intended for people who work with horses, it soon became a children’s classic. While outwardly teaching animal welfare, it also contains allegorical lessons about how to treat people with kindness, sympathy and respect. The story is narrated in the first person and each short chapter relates an incident in Black Beauty’s life, with Sewell’s detailed observations and extensive descriptions of horse behavior lending the novel a good deal of verisimilitude.

Brave New World

Brave New World is a dystopian social science fiction novel by English author Aldous Huxley, written in 1931 and published a year later. Largely set in a futuristic World State, whose citizens are environmentally engineered into an intelligence-based social hierarchy, the novel anticipates huge scientific advancements in reproductive technology, sleep-learning, psychological manipulation, and classical conditioning that are combined to make a dystopian society that is challenged by only a single individual: the story’s protagonist. Huxley followed this book with a reassessment in essay form, Brave New World Revisited (1958), and with his final novel, Island (1962), the utopian counterpart. The novel is often compared to George Orwell’s 1884. Brave New World has frequently been banned and challenged since its original publication.
Aldous Leonard Huxley was an English writer and philosopher. He wrote nearly 50 books—both novels and non-fiction works—as well as wide-ranging essays, narratives, and poems. Born into the prominent Huxley family, he graduated from Balliol College, Oxford, with an undergraduate degree in English literature.

Calypso to Collapso; The Resurrection of Vivian Stanshall

Vivian Stanshall was the quintessential pop hero of the 60s, 70s and 80s. Viv shot to fame in 1968 in the BONZO DOG DOO-DAH BAND, but as many listeners of the John Peel Show are aware, his tales of the upper-class Rawlinsons and Maynards were the bees knees for anyone with a warped sense of humour. Born Victor Anthony Stanshall, 21 March 1943, Shillingford, Oxfordshire, his post-WWII family settled in the coastal town of Leigh-on-Sea, in Essex. From bingo-caller to painting fairground attractions (and a spell in the merchant navy), Stanshall enrolled at London’s Central School of Art and Design. It was there in September 1962, he met Roger Ruskin Spear, Rodney Slater and Neil Innes (the latter attended nearby Goldsmiths College) and, with other equally unorthodox musicians, formed The BONZO DOG DOO-DAH BAND.

Candide

Candide is a French satire first published in 1759 by Voltaire, a philosopher of the Age of Enlightenment. The novella has been widely translated, with English versions titled Candide: or, All for the Best (1759); Candide: or, The Optimist (1762); and Candide: Optimism (1947). It begins with a young man, Candide, who is living a sheltered life in an Edenic paradise and being indoctrinated with Leibnizian optimism by his mentor, Professor Pangloss. The work describes the abrupt cessation of this lifestyle, followed by Candide’s slow and painful disillusionment as he witnesses and experiences great hardships in the world. Voltaire concludes Candide with, if not rejecting Leibnizian optimism outright, advocating a deeply practical precept, “we must cultivate our garden”, in lieu of the Leibnizian mantra of Pangloss, “all is for the best” in the “best of all possible worlds”.

Charlie Watts Life On The Backbeat 1941-2021

Charlie Watts provided the foundation that underpinned the music of the Rolling Stones. The band became a by-word for rock ‘n’ roll excess but for Watts, playing with the Stones did not become the ego trip that drove Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. A jazz aficionado, Watts vied with Bill Wyman for the title of least charismatic member of the band; he eschewed the limelight and rarely gave interviews. And he famously described life with the Stones as five years of playing, 20 years of hanging around. Charles Robert Watts was born on 2 June 1941 at the University College Hospital in London and was raised in Kingsbury, now part of the London Borough of Brent. His father was a lorry driver and Watts was brought up in a prefabricated house to which the family had moved after German bombs destroyed hundreds of houses in the area. A childhood friend once described how Watts had an early interest in jazz and recalled listening to 78s in Charlie’s bedroom by artists such as Jelly Roll Morton and Charlie Parker.

“A heartfelt and lovely Christmas tale for kids, moms, dads and book lovers everywhere!” New York Times

Christmas Eve & Christmas Day

Here is a charming collection of stories, mostly set in New England in the 1800s, that depict how Christmas was celebrated then. Seems that Christmas was not always a tree with dozens, if not hundreds, of gifts spread around the tree. Consumerism not being then what it is today, the gift might simply be a letter from a long-missing loved one, or simply the return through a blizzard of a husband who had left only hours ago on a mission of mercy. The relief of the anxiety of waiting for the person or merely news that the loved one had survived was often the best gift to be had. There are sleigh rides, caroling through the night and selfless giving to fill one with the warmth and joy of the season. A true old-fashioned holiday treasure

Civil Disobedience

Civil Disobedience is an essay by American transcendentalist Henry David Thoreau that was first published in 1849. In it, Thoreau argues that individuals should not permit governments to overrule or atrophy their consciences, and that they have a duty to avoid allowing such acquiescence to enable the government to make them the agents of injustice. Thoreau was motivated in part by his disgust with slavery and the Mexican–American War.
Henry David Thoreau was an American naturalist, essayist, poet, and philosopher. A leading transcendentalist, he is best known for his book Walden, a reflection upon simple living in natural surroundings, and his essay “Civil Disobedience” (originally published as “Resistance to Civil Government”), an argument for disobedience to an unjust state.

Coming Up for Air

Coming Up for Air is the seventh book by English writer George Orwell, published in June 1939 by Victor Gollancz. It was written between 1938 and 1939 while Orwell spent time recuperating from illness in French Morocco, mainly in Marrakesh. He delivered the completed manuscript to Victor Gollancz upon his return to London in March 1939. The story follows George Bowling, a 45-year-old husband, father, and insurance salesman, who foresees World War II and attempts to recapture idyllic childhood innocence and escape his dreary life by returning to Lower Binfield, his birthplace. The novel is comical and pessimistic, with its views that (a) speculative builders, commercialism, and capitalism are killing the best of rural England, and (b) his country is facing the sinister appearance of new, external national threats.

Dark Angel of Italia Benito Mussolini El Duce Fascist Dictator

Benito Mussolini, was born on July 29, 1883, who went by the nickname “Il Duce” (“the Leader”), was a deeply unbalanced tyrannical Italian dictator who created the dreaded Fascist Party in 1919. Eventually, he held all power in Italy as the country’s prime minister from 1922 to 1943. An ardent socialist as a youth, Mussolini followed in his father’s political footsteps but was expelled by the party for his overt support of World War I. As an evil dictator during World War II (even murdering his own son by lethal injection) he greatly overextended his forces and was eventually killed by his own people in Mezzegra, Italy.

Dark Horse

Geoffrey Giuliano lived in the “often wonderfully unreal” world of George Harrison and his friends, interviews with whom are the basis for much of this vivid and revealing portrait. Here are Harrison’s Liverpool childhood, the forging of the Beatles, their unheralded ascendancy, and the bitter break-up; his turbulent solo career with its soaring successes and harrowing setbacks; his reincarnation as a Traveling Wilbury; his impact as a record and film producer; his oft-publicized and misjudged spiritual quest; and much more. George Harrison was an English musician, singer-songwriter, and music and film producer who achieved international fame as the lead guitarist of the Beatles. Sometimes called “the quiet Beatle”, Harrison embraced Indian culture and helped broaden the scope of popular music through his incorporation of Indian instrumentation and Hindu-aligned spirituality in the Beatles’ work. Although the majority of the band’s songs were written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, most Beatles albums from 1965 onwards contained at least two Harrison compositions.

Darshan An Evening with the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi

In 1992 Geoffrey Giuliano was asked if he would do an exclusive interview with the Maharishi in Switzerland. The author readily agreed as the reclusive spiritual master almost never met the press and he was embarking on an ambitious program of mass meditation to try and purify vast areas of the United States. After a great deal of negotiation, the two finally got together on Christmas Eve and had a prolonged, stirring conversation which is documented here. In addition, the Maharishi was joined by the late world-class magician Doug Henning. Put together with a chronological, historical narration by Giuliano, here is your chance to go one-on-one with one of the greatest spiritual minds of our time. Maharishi Mahesh Yogi was an Indian yoga guru,[3] known for developing and popularizing Transcendental Meditation (TM), and for being the leader and guru of a worldwide organization that has been characterized in multiple ways including as a new religious movement and as non-religious.

Darshan Neem Karoli Baba Jagat Guru Of The Age

Neem Karoli Baba known to his followers as Maharaj-ji – was a great Hindu guru, mystic and devotee of Lord Hanuman. He is very well known outside India for being the spiritual master of a number of prominent Americans who traveled to India in the 1960s and 70s, including spiritual teachers Ram Dass, Bhagavan Das, and musicians Krishna Das and Jai Uttal. His ashrams are in Kainchi, Vrindavan, Rishikesh, Shimla, Neem Karoli village near Khimasepur in Farrukhabad, Bhumiadhar, Hanumangarhi, Delhi in India and in Taos, New Mexico. Maharaji was a lifelong adept of bhakti yoga, and encouraged service to others (seva) as the highest form of unconditional devotion to God. There can be no biography of him. Facts are few, stories many. He seems to have been known by different names in many parts of India, appearing and disappearing through the years. His non-Indian devotees of recent years knew him as Neem Karoli Baba, but mostly as “Maharajji” – a nickname so commonplace in India that one can often hear a tea vendor addressed thus. Just as he said, he was “nobody”. He gave no discourses; the briefest, simplest stories were his teachings.

Das Avatar The Divine Incarnations Anient Yoga Secrets – The Teachings Of Neem Karoli Baba

The incarnations of Vishnu are a recurrent theme in Vedic history. Vishnu exists outside the material realm as the creator, and within every being as the Supersoul. He also enters this world as an avatar, ‘one who descends’, to restore balance whenever his presence is needed. “Whenever there is a decline of religion and a rise of irreligion, I incarnate myself. To protect the good, to destroy the wicked, and to re-establish religious principles, I appear in every age.” There are said to be more incarnations of Godhead than waves on the ocean. The avatars of Vishnu are of particular interest because He takes progressively more developed forms, from fish, tortoise and boar to half-animal, half-man, and finally human form. That God should incarnate as an animal, even a supernatural one, shows animals have an important role to play in God’s eyes. They are living expressions of the spirit and presence of God. Here are the subtle secret teachings of Neem Karoli Baba, the master of Ram Das, Krishna Das and so many more. These ancient yogic mysteries were taught only to Maharaji’s most advanced disciples and were thought to be all but lost these many years. Coming now from a nearly 50-year devotee of Karoli Baba here is a singular opportunity to enter into the true mystical presence of the divine incarnations of the absolute.

Deep Water; Diary of a Black Panther; Soul Sister

Assata Olugbala Shakur is a former member of the Black Liberation Army (BLA), who was convicted of being an accomplice in the first-degree murder of State Trooper Werner Foerster during a shootout on the New Jersey Turnpike in 1973. Shakur was also the target of the FBI’s COINTELPRO (counterintelligence program) directed against Black Power movement groups and activists. Also involved in the shootout were New Jersey State Troopers Werner Foerster and James Harper and BLA members Sundiata Acoli and Zayd Malik Shakur. Harper was wounded; Zayd was killed; Foerster was killed by Acoli. Between 1973 and 1977, Shakur was charged with murder, attempted murder, armed robbery, bank robbery, and kidnapping in relation to the shootout and six other incidents. She was acquitted on three of the charges and three were dismissed. In 1977, she was convicted of the murder of Foerster and of seven other felonies related to the shootout. While serving a life sentence for murder, she escaped from the Clinton Correctional Facility for Women in 1979. She surfaced in Cuba in 1984, where she was granted political asylum. Shakur has lived in Cuba since, despite US government efforts to have her returned. She is on the FBI Most Wanted Terrorists list, as Joanne Deborah Chesimard. This is her story.

Diario Del Che On Bolivia

The Bolivian Diary is a record of Che’s final campaign. He was dead 24 hours after his last entry. It consists of notes he intended to expand, but it was not to be. Since the Bolivian Diary fell into the hands of his captors, the CIA intended to use it as propaganda against Che in particular and Latin American guerrilla movements in general. But surprisingly, a member of the Bolivian government photocopied the diary and sent it to Cuba. Castro published it in several languages, thus pre-empting the CIA’s plans to doctor the text for its own purposes. It is refreshing to read Che in his own words since so much has been written about him by his detractors. On the one hand there is an intimacy to his diaries –because he wrote them for himself – which reveals the person rather than the public persona. But on the other, when he is writing about politics and revolutions, we encounter a driven man who was a committed socialist even in his sleep.

Diary Of A Dead Officer

Published posthumously in 1919, this collection of diary entries presents a scathing picture of army life and is said to be one of the most vivid accounts of daily life in the trenches. It chronicles West’s increasing disillusion with war and his move toward pacifist and atheist beliefs. The final part consists of his powerful war poems, including God, How I Hate You, You Young Cheerful Men, and Night Patrol. West was killed by a sniper in 1917. In view of some of his poems, one wonders if death was not unwelcome

Divine Tales Spiritual Gems – Sri Krishna The Supreme Personality Of Godhead

Krishna is an historical person who appeared on this earth in India 5,000 years ago. He stayed on this earth for 125 years and played exactly like a human being, but His activities were unparalleled. Sri Krishna is the Supreme Personality of Godhead.Because He conforms in exact detail to descriptions of the Supreme Being, the Godhead. In other words, Krishna is the Godhead because He is all-attractive. Outside the principle of all-attraction, there is no meaning to the word Godhead. How is it one can be all-attractive? First of all, if one is very wealthy, if he has great riches, he becomes attractive to the people in general. Similarly, if someone is very powerful, he also becomes attractive, and if someone is very famous, he also becomes attractive, and if someone is very beautiful or wise or unattached to all kinds of possessions, he also becomes attractive. So from practical experience we can observe that one is attractive due to 1) wealth, 2) power, 3) fame, 4) beauty, 5) wisdom, and 6) renunciation. One who is in possession of all six of these opulences at the same time, who possesses them to an unlimited degree, is understood to be the Supreme Personality of Godhead. These opulences of the Godhead are delineated by Parasara Muni, a great Vedic authority.

Fast-forward to the late fifteenth century West Bengal, India.Chaitanya Mahaprabhu then appeared, as predicted in the Bhagavad-gita: “Whenever and wherever there is a decline in religiosity, and a preeminent rise in irreligion, at that time I descend Myself.” In His youth, Chaitanya was known as Nimai Pandit. He gained fame as a preeminent scholar of the Vedas, able to defeat by logic any philosophical opposition. The next phase of His mission was to popularize the chanting of the Hare Krishna mantra.

Don Quixote

He is best known for his novel Don Quixote, a work often cited as both the first modern novel and one of the pinnacles of world literature. Much of his life was spent in poverty and obscurity, many of its details are disputed or unknown, and the bulk of his surviving work was produced in the three years preceding his death. Despite this, his influence and literary contribution are reflected by the fact that Spanish is often referred to as “the language of Cervantes”.An incident in the story of Don Quixote (1870), by English painter Robert Hillingford, depicts a scene from Cervantes’ magnum opus. In 1569, Cervantes was forced to leave Spain and moved to Rome, where he worked in the household of a cardinal. In 1570, he enlisted in a Spanish Navy infantry regiment and was badly wounded at the Battle of Lepanto in October 1571. He served as a soldier until 1575, when he was captured by Barbary pirates; after five years in captivity, he was ransomed and returned to Madrid. His first significant novel, titled La Galatea, was published in 1585, but he continued to work as a purchasing agent, then later a government tax collector.

Dracula

“There is a reason why all things are as they are.” Dracula author Bram Stoker was born on November 8, 1847 in Dublin. Stoker was bedridden with an unknown illness until he started school at the age of seven when he made a complete recovery. Of this time, Stoker wrote, “I was naturally thoughtful, and the leisure of long illness gave opportunity for many thoughts which were fruitful according to their kind in later years.” He was educated in a private school run by the Reverend William Woods. Stoker visited the English coastal town of Whitby in 1890, and that visit was said to be part of the inspiration for Dracula. He began writing novels while working as the manager for London’s Lyceum Theatre, beginning with The Snake’s Pass in 1890 and Dracula in 1897. Stoker was part of the literary staff of The Daily Telegraph in London, and he wrote other fiction, including the horror novels The Lady of the Shroud (1909) and The Lair of the White Worm (1911). Dracula is an epistolary novel, written as a collection of realistic but completely fictional diary entries, telegrams, letters, ship’s logs, and newspaper clippings, all of which added a level of detailed realism to the story, a skill which Stoker had developed as a newspaper writer. At the time of its publication, Dracula was considered a “straightforward horror novel” based on imaginary creations of supernatural life. “It gave form to a universal fantasy and became a part of popular culture.

Dracula The Lost Manuscript

Dracula, a Gothic novel by Bram Stoker, published in 1897, is derived from old vampire legends and is the basis for an entire genre of literature and film. Dracula, the archetypal vampire, is depicted in the novel as having been the origin of the many werewolf legends. The willowy count is believed to have been inspired by the 15th-century Vlad the Impaler, and by Sir Henry Irving, an actor for whom Stoker was a personal assistant. One of Dracula’s most iconic powers is his ability to turn others into vampires by biting them and thus infecting them with the vampiric disease. Stoker’s novel takes the form of an epistolary tale, in which Count Dracula’s characteristics, powers are narrated by multiple narrators. Count Dracula is an undead, centuries-old vampire, and Transylvanian nobleman descended from Attila the Hun. He inhabits a decaying castle in the Carpathian Mountains near the Borgo Pass. Dracula is devilishly handsome and charismatic, with a veneer of dark aristocratic charm. Likewise, he possesses supernatural abilities gained through his intimate dealings with the Devil.

In the novel he also has great hypnotic, telepathic and illusionary powers. This is the rare, long lost original 1897 manuscript – published here for the first time.

Dream of the Red Chamber

The Dream of the Red Chamber (also known as The Story of the Stone) is one of the Four Great Classical Novels of China, and considered the greatest of them all. Almost 40 main characters and some 500 minor characters tell the fortunes of the Chia family; the book details mainly the life of Chia Pao-yü, the heir apparent, who is described as very intelligent, but also as carefree and self-indulging. The already wealthy Chia family rises to new heights when Pao-yü’s elder sister becomes an imperial consort. On her first visit home, a lush garden is built, where much of the rest of the story takes place. The intrigues surrounding Pao-yü and his cousins, especially Lin Tai-yü who he loves, and Hsüeh Pao-ch’ai who he is finally tricked into marrying, make up a large part of the story. The decline of the Chia family begins with the death of the imperial consort, and when they fall into disfavour with the emperor, their mansions and the garden are eventually destroyed. The whole book has 120 chapters, only 80 of which were written by Cao Xueqin before his death in 1764. Cheng Weiyuan and Gao E claimed to have access to Cao’s papers, and published what is now known as the Cheng-Gao version in 1791. Henry Bencraft Joly translated only part of the book written by Cao.

Dude Dehari Baba Heart Of Devotion – Scared Spaces

Ram Krishna Das Vaishnaba, or Dude Dehari Baba, or Milk Baba was so named because he lived forty-five years entirely on one small cup of milk per day. No other food ever passed his lips. Baba lived in a small room by the Bagmati river at Pashiputinath temple, five kilometers outside of Katmandu. His beautiful matted hair, or jata, was over twenty-six feet long. Baba was a lifelong devotee of Lord Rama and God Brother and confidant of Neem Karoli Baba, the iconic guru of Baba Ram Das. Lord Rama, also known as Ramachandra, is the seventh avatar of Krishna, one of his most popular incarnations along with Parshurama, and Gautama Buddha. Rama was born to Kaushalya and Dasharatha in Ayodhya, the ruler of the Kingdom of Kosala. Dude Baba was always chanting the name of Rama and was a master musician and great singer of bhajans. In 1993 he met American devotee author Jagannatha Dasa and subsequently travelled to his farm community in Lockport, New York for a six-month residency at the SRI ashram there. While there Dasa arranged for Baba to begin a mammoth two week recording session with a host of popular Indian musicians in order to get his collected bhajans down on tape for posterity. Recorded too were several inspirational lectures. Here then is the fruit of a lifetime spent as an ardent servant of Lord Rama and liberating transcendental vibrations of a pure devotee.

“When you walk around a town like this, you know people were here before you, and they were probably on a much higher, grander level than any of us are.” (Bob Dylan, Rome, 2001) Bob Dylan’s near lifelong love affair with Rome started way back in 1963 when he first visited the iconic destination.

Poe’s stature as a major figure in world literature is based on his ingenious and profound poems, which established a highly influential rationale for the short form in poetry.

Here, perhaps, is his most icon lauded work as interpreted by veteran actor Giuliano.

Edicion en Espanol El Sri Isopanisad

Esta vida material está basada simplemente en la lujuria; nosotros queremos disfrutar de este mundo, y amamos a este mundo material porque queremos gratificar nuestros sentidos. Esta lujuria es un reflejo pervertido de nuestro amor por Dios. En nuestra constitución original estamos hechos para amar a la Personalidad de Dios, pero debido a que nos hemos olvidado de Dios, amamos la materia. Por naturaleza la entidad viviente es perfecta, pero debido a la contaminación de esta lujuria, ella se vuelve viciosa; aquello que es parte y porción del oro también es oro, por lo tanto, cualquier cosa que sea parte o porción del todo perfecto también es perfecto. Igualmente por la invocación del sri Isopanisad- leemos que,” La personalidad de Dios es perfecta y completa, y debido a que Él es completamente perfecto, todo lo que emana de Él, tal como este mundo de fenómenos, está perfectamente equipado como un todo completo. Todo lo que se produce del todo completo también está completo en sí mismo. Debido a que Él es el todo completo, aunque tantas unidades completas que emanen de Él, Él permanece completo en lo remanente”. Debido a la contaminación de la materia, la perfecta entidad viviente cae, pero el proceso de la conciencia de Krishna hará que ella sea otra vez perfecta. A través de este proceso, ella puede volverse realmente feliz, y después de abandonar el cuerpo material, puede entrar en el reino donde la vida es eterna bienaventurada y plena de conocimiento.

Fascist Food – Confessions of a Corporate Clown – My Life as Ronald McDonald

Well-known author, actor, and activist Geoffrey Giuliano’s first real job was playing the marvelous, magical burger king in a vaudeville-type traveling magic show in 1977. Culminating in an all-star show in support of the Special Olympics at the Kennedy compound in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts, Giuliano became friends with the family and continues work on behalf of the charity. Working closely with Eunice and Sargent Schriver over the years, the talented Giuliano is also an advocate for animal rights who founded two longstanding charities with his late wife Vrnda Devi. Dasa Food for All was a successful food pantry run in association with the Food Bank of Western New York and also the Spirit of Saint Francis sanctuary, which rescued cows and other at-risk animals from slaughterhouses, giving them a pastoral, peaceful home for life. After leaving Burger King in 1979, Geoffrey went on to portray the murderous meat clown Ronald McDonald, performing live and appearing in the infamous television commercials so many remember. Along the way, however, he had a change of heart and saw the suffering, cruelty, and violence against these innocent animals – and to the children who were encouraged by sophisticated promotional campaigns to eat the unhealthy food. After leaving McDonald’s after two years (and successfully suing the firm in Toronto) Giuliano participated in the infamous McLibel campaign (which also became a major motion picture in which he costarred). Now, some 30 years later, at 65, Geoffrey Giuliano is still traveling extensively preaching, teaching, and talking about the needless violence perpetuated in the name of fast food to millions of factory farm animals, who are not only contributing to the destruction of the delicate ecosystem, but also putting kids at risk for conditions like diabetes, heart attack, and even stroke from what is the worst kind of salt and sugar-laden junk food.

A year later, Shelley returned to England and from then on devoted herself to the upbringing of her son and a career as a professional author.

Frankenstein Alive!

Mary Shelley was an English novelist who wrote the Gothic novel Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus in 1818, which is considered an early example of science fiction. She also edited and promoted the works of her husband, the Romantic poet, and philosopher Percy Bysshe Shelley. Her father was the political philosopher William Godwin and her mother the philosopher and feminist activist Mary Wollstonecraft. Shelley’s mother died less than a month after giving birth to her. She was raised by her father, who provided her with a rich if informal education, encouraging her to adhere to his own anarchist political theories. When she was four, her father married a neighbor, Mary Jane Clairmont, with whom Shelley came to have a troubled relationship. In 1814, Shelley began a romance with one of her father’s political followers, Percy Bysshe Shelley, who was already married. Together with her stepsister, Claire Clairmont, she and Percy left for France and traveled through Europe. Upon their return to England, Shelley was pregnant with Percy’s child.

Geoffrey Giuliano Armchair Revolution / The Kitchen Table Talks 2017

Angela McCartney was born in Liverpool, as you might expect, in November of 1929. She married her first husband in 1956 and her daughter, Ruth, was born in 1960. Angie was widowed in 1962 after her husband was in a tragic car accident. Two years later she became acquainted with a lonely widower by the name of Jim McCartney. Jim was a retired cotton salesman and one time local band leader who also shared the distinction of being the father of Paul McCartney The couple were married in 1964 with Jim adopting Angie’s little girl. Together with Jim until his death in 1976, Angie and Ruth were witness to pretty much all of the exciting, turbulent Beatles years. Along the way both ladies formed deep relationships with not only Paul, but also his brother Mike McGear, all of the Beatles and their wives, as well as a host of other prominent people of the day. To enter into a family as close knit and headstrong as the McCartney clan, however, was often tough going – not withstanding the ever present pressure as the family of Beatle Paul and the madness which swirled around those lucky, or perhaps more appropriately, fated to be part of his exclusive inner circle. Angie not only looked after Ruth and Jim, but also helped out at the Beatles office, event planning and later, in 1976, starting the fan club for Paul’s second incarnation pop group, Wings. For Ruth, being the kid sister of the sexy Paul was first a thrill and later a challenge. At school she was teased and sometimes even bullied because of her famous family.

Geoffrey Giuliano in Conversation with Jack Bruce

Jack Bruce, the late great bassist, singer, composer, and performer extraordinaire was a close friend of author-historian, Geoffrey Giuliano, as evidenced by the exclusive interview featured in this unique audiobook.

Graeme Edge The Moody Blues A Celebration

Graeme Edge was born March 30, 1941 in Rochester, Staffordshire. His mother was a pianist for the silent movies and his father, grandfather and great-grandfather were all music-hall singers. Edge trained as a draughtsman but soon went into music full time. He never started out to be a drummer, he was, in fact the manager of a group called the Blue Rhythm Band. Graeme always watched the drummer in the group and fooled around on the drums, but never really drummed professionally until that drummer quit and he had to fill in. He then bought his first drum kit. The first band he formed was the Silhouettes followed by The Blue Rhythm Band. He then helped to form Gerry Levene and the Avengers, who recorded a single for Decca, and appeared on TV in “Thank Your Lucky Stars”. Following the collapse of this group in April 1964 Edge formed The R & B Preachers, which included Denny Laine and Clint Warwick. When that group disbanded the three of them linked up with Ray Thomas and Mike Pinder to form The M & B 5, which later changed its name to The Moody Blues. During the Moodies’ break in recording and touring, Graeme released his first solo album KICK OFF YOUR MUDDY BOOTS in 1975. He became particularly enamored with the salsa, calypso, samba, and reggae beats when he visited the Caribbean during his ocean-going voyage round the world in his 70ft yacht. Graeme drums with a precision beat while spicing the Moodies’ sound with a wide range of percussion instruments.

Great Expectations

11-year-old actor Eden Giuliano presents a brand new line of exciting children’s stories from Icon! Here is perhaps Charles Dickens’ most beloved story, Philip Pirrip, known as “Pip”, narrates his own incredible journey, from the hindsight of 50 years. Pip grows up with his older sister after losing his parents as a boy. His sister, a tough woman, rules Pip and her husband Joe with an iron fist. While playing in the marshes, Pip is accosted by an escaped criminal whom he decides to help by stealing food from his own home. The convict however, is soon caught and returned to prison. Miss Havisham, an eccentric recluse, sends for Pip to come to her house to play with Estella, a haughty girl about his age. Although Pip is ashamed as a poor uneducated boy, he is fascinated by Estella. A few years later, he becomes apprenticed to Joe, a blacksmith, but dreams of one day becoming rich and clever and marrying Estella. A very odd stranger, Mr. Jaggers, arrives to inform him that he has come into a handsome property, and will be removed from his present home to be brought up as a gentleman. The benefactor is kept secret, but Pip is sure it must be Miss Havisham. In London, Pip acquires a tutor, grand new clothes and the uptown lifestyle he always wanted. Things, however, are complicated as a gentleman in society, and he finds himself very unhappy, as Estella remains indifferent to him, deeply involved with someone else. Pip begins overspending his generous allowance, and worse, spurns old friends

Half a Wind: Unfinished Interviews Dr. Winston O’Boogie 1974-1975

The enigmatic founder and leader of the Beatles, John Lennon was not only a groundbreaking musician and composer for the ages but also a keen philosopher, seeker of truth, and politically savvy advocate of nonviolence, tolerance, and unrestricted personal freedom. The enlightened big brother to now several generations, Lennon consistently gave everything he had, and then some, to his liberated, infectious music and wide-ranging, common-sense political ideals. In this expansive, comprehensive collection, the very best of John Lennon’s thought-provoking words, the myth, legend, and rumor surrounding this great man is stripped away, and the real John as artist and thoughtful global citizen emerges. Carefully edited to relieve the listener of the tedious twee of the almost always ill-informed and sensationalist-seeking interviewer, Lennon is free to speak his mind on an incredible array of subjects; including his work with the Beatles, his days as a freaky peace politician, his relationships with the other members of the group, the painful trails of his parentless childhood, the creation of his artistic work, and other equally engrossing entertaining Lennonspeak. Here is the perfect collection of the great John Lennon for every dedicated Beatles fan, music historian, the media, as well as all school, library, institutional, and university collections

Halloween Classics; The Old Grey Goose; Stories of Mystery and Terror

“Goose was an exceptionally kind, open, honest and understanding gentleman of the finest caliber. His natural charisma and charm is well known. At the Saturday night campfires in the woods he was a magical performer, pretending to play a banjo with an old tennis racket wearing a white pith helmet with a painted red band which had definitely seeing better days. He told wonderfully engrossing stores, some of them scary – but not too much. We all sang camp songs together, which I still remember word for word. Goose was universally loved and deeply respected by everyone, parents and campers alike. Twenty years later I would see Goose in Lockport riding his old bicycle around town. He was a devout Christian Scientist in the very best and purest sense. He told me he read the Bible out loud in his room for two hours every day. He lived at the Y for God knows how many years. There were to be many more adventures between Goose and I in later years, including our travels together in India in 1993 with my young daughter Avalon and awkward nephew, Robin. Goose would remain an important figure in my life when, years later, he became one of the premier artists on my fledgling label Samba Records wherein we recorded many original very popular CDs, now audiobooks, of his wonderful children’s stories and songs. Almost thirty years later they still sell well online. ” -GEOFFREY GIULIANO

Hanuman Chalisa The Music The History The Magic

“Sripad Jagannatha Dasa guides us into the sacred heart space of this life-changing hymn as only a dedicated lifelong Ram bhakta may. A self-realized yogi – a wonderful trip!.” The Yoga Journal “I bow to the Hanuman who is swifter than the mind and wind. The sacred one who has controlled his senses, the one who is the epitome of learning and wisdom. Salutations to the son of the God of Air and chief of the Vanaras, I pray always to Lord Hanuman.” The Hanuman Chalisa is a Vedic devotional hymn (stotra) in praise of Hanuman authored by the poet sage Tulsi Das. The word “chālīsā” means the number forty in Sanskrit, as the Hanuman Chalisa has forty verses. Lord Hanuman is a great devotee of Sri Ram and one of the central characters in the epic, Ramayan. Hanuman is also an incarnation of Shiva. The qualities of Hanuman – his strength, courage, wisdom, celibacy, devotion to Lord Ram, and the many names by which he is known are all in the Hanuman Chalisa. Devotional recitation of this sacred prayer is done by millions every day. Hanumanji is the greatest devotee of Sri Ram and an incarnation of the mighty Lord Shiva. He is therefore the epitome of ultimate devotion manifested with its full glory unchallenged in all times and places. By the power of his devotion to Sita Ram, he easily achieved supreme status as the perfect devotee and servitor. Lord Hanuman is the eternal link between all devotees and Ram whom he serves, inspires, and protects. By honoring Hanuman one is blessed with all kinds of siddhis including power, valor, prosperity, and devotion. Reciting or hearing the Hanuman Chalisa infuses one with unlimited energy and prana.

Happy Tales for Children Everywhere; The Best of Beatrix Potter

Beatrix Potter was born July 28, 1866. She was an English writer, illustrator, natural scientist, and conservationist best known for her children’s books featuring animals. Born into an upper-middle-class household, Potter was educated by governesses and grew up isolated from other children. She had numerous pets and spent holidays in Scotland and the Lake District, developing a love of landscape, flora, and fauna, all of which she closely observed and painted. Potter’s study and watercolours of fungi led to her being widely respected in the field of mycology. In her thirties, Potter self-published the highly successful children’s book The Tale of Peter Rabbit. Following this, Potter began writing and illustrating children’s books full-time.. Potter’s books continue to sell throughout the world in many languages with her stories being retold in songs, films, ballet, and animations, and her life depicted in a feature film and television film.

Hard Times

“Do the wise thing and the kind thing too, and make the best of us and not the worst.” “Now, what I want is Facts. Teach these boys and girls nothing but Facts. Facts alone are wanted in life. Plant nothing else, and root out everything else. You can only form the minds of reasoning animals upon Facts; nothing else will ever be of any service to them.” ― Charles Dickens, Hard Times Hard Times is the tenth novel by Charles Dickens, first published in 1854. The book surveys English society and satirizes the social and economic conditions of the era. Hard Times is unusual in several ways. It is by far the shortest of Dickens’s novels, barely a quarter of the length of those written immediately before and after it. Moreover, it is his only novel not to have scenes set in London.

Aleister Crowley was born 12 October 1875. He was an English occultist, ceremonial magician, poet, painter, novelist, and mountaineer. He founded the religion of Thelema, identifying himself as the prophet entrusted with guiding humanity into the Æon of Horus in the early 20th century.

Icon Kids Classics Pinocchio

Eden Giuliano presents a brand-new line of exciting children’s stories from Icon! The Adventures of Pinocchio, also simply known as Pinocchio, is a novel for children by Italian author Carlo Collodi, written in Pescia. It is about the mischievous adventures of an animated marionette named Pinocchio and his father; a poor woodcarver named Geppetto.

The story stopped after nearly 4 months and 8 episodes at Chapter 15, but by popular demand from readers, the episodes were resumed on 16 February 1882. In February 1883, the story was published in a single book. Since then, the spread of Pinocchio on the main markets for children’s book of the time was continuous and uninterrupted, and it was met with enthusiastic reviews worldwide. According to extensive research done by the Fondazione Nazionale Carlo Collodi in the late 1990s and based on UNESCO sources, the book has been adapted in over 260 languages worldwide, while as of 2018 it has been translated into over 300 languages.

It’s a Wonderful Life

It’s a Wonderful Life is a 1946 American Christmas family fantasy drama, based on the short story The Greatest Gift, which Philip Van Doren Stern self-published in 1943 and is in turn loosely based on the 1843 Charles Dickens novella A Christmas Carol. A man has given up his personal dreams, in order to help others in his community, and whose suicide attempt on Christmas Eve brings about the intervention of his guardian angel, Clarence Odbody. Clarence shows George how he has touched the lives of others and how different life would be for his wife Mary and his community of Bedford Falls if he had not been born. It’s a Wonderful Life is considered one of the greatest films of all time. It was nominated for five Academy Awards, including Best Picture, and has been recognized by the American Film Institute as one of the 100 best American films ever made. It was No. 11 on the American Film Institute’s 1998 greatest movie list, No. 20 on its 2007 greatest movie list, and No. 1 on its list of the most inspirational American films of all time.[8] Capra revealed that it was his favorite among the films he directed and that he screened it for his family every Christmas season.

Jane Eyre

Jane Eyre is a novel by English writer Charlotte Brontë, published under the pen name “Currer Bell”, on October 16, 1847 by Smith, Elder & Co. of London. The first American edition was published the following year by Harper & Brothers of New York. Jane Eyre is a Bildungsroman which follows the experiences of its eponymous heroine, including her growth to adulthood and her love for Mr. Rochester, the brooding master of Thornfield Hall. The novel revolutionized prose fiction by being the first to focus on its protagonist’s moral and spiritual development through an intimate first-person narrative, where actions and events are colored by a psychological intensity. Charlotte Brontë has been called the “first historian of the private consciousness”. The work contains elements of social criticism with a strong sense of Christian morality at its core, and it is considered by many to be ahead of its time because of Jane’s individualistic character and how the novel approaches the topics of class, sexuality, religion, and feminism. Jane Eyre is one of the most famous romance novels of all time.

His political and philosophical thought had enormous influence on subsequent intellectual, economic and political history and his name has been used as an adjective, a noun and a school of social theory. Marx’s complex theories about society, economics and politics – collectively understood as Marxism – hold that human societies develop through class struggle. In capitalism, this manifests itself in the conflict between the ruling and working classes. Employing a critical approach known as historical materialism, Marx predicted that, like previous socio-economic systems, capitalism produced internal tensions which would lead to its self-destruction and replacement by a new system: socialism. Marx actively pressed for its implementation, arguing the working class should carry out organized revolution to topple capitalism and bring about socio-economic emancipation. Marx has been described as one of the most influential figures in human history.

Keep the Aspidistra Flying

Keep the Aspidistra Flying, first published in 1936, is a socially critical novel by George Orwell. It is set in 1930s London. The main theme is Gordon Comstock’s romantic ambition to defy worship of the money-God and status and the dismal life that results. George Orwell, was an English novelist, essayist, journalist and critic. His work is characterized by lucid prose, biting social criticism, total opposition to totalitarianism, and outspoken support of democratic socialism. Orwell produced literary criticism and poetry, fiction and polemical journalism. He is known for the allegorical novella Animal Farm (1945) and the dystopian novel Nineteen Eighty-Four (1949). His non-fiction works, including The Road to Wigan Pier (1937), documenting his experience of working-class life in the north of England, and Homage to Catalonia (1938), an account of his experiences soldiering for the Republican faction of the Spanish Civil War (1936–1939), are as critically respected as his essays on politics and literature, language and culture. In 2008, The Times ranked George Orwell second among “The 50 greatest British writers since 1945”. Orwell’s work remains influential in popular culture and in political culture, and the adjective “Orwellian”—describing totalitarian and authoritarian social practices—is part of the English language, like many of his neologisms, such as “Big Brother”, “Thought Police”, “Two Minutes Hate”, “Room 101”, “memory hole”, “Newspeak”, “doublethink”, “unperson”, and “thoughtcrime”, as well as providing direct inspiration for the neologism “groupthink”.

This is not to minimize the fact the obvious direction of this unexpected audio documentary is Ki’s decades long love affair with Vivian, rather, to truly enter into the deeper level of these remarkable conversations you must understand that Ki and Viv are both, in their own way, important and timely artists.

Kirtan Avatar The Life Of Lord Chaitanya Secrets Of Devotional Yoga

Chaitanya Mahaprabhu appeared as a devotee of Krishna in Mayapur, West Bengal, India in the late fifteenth century. He introduced sankirtan, widespread congregational chanting of the Supreme Person’s names, as the most effective means by which anyone can achieve spiritual perfection. By His influence, many of India’s leading religious scholars and their followers became devotees of Krishna themselves. In His youth, Mahaprabhu started a Sanskrit academy in Navadvipa—one of India’s top centers of learning at the time—and earned a reputation as an excellent scholar. But at age twenty-four he renounced everything to travel the subcontinent encouraging everyone he met to chant the Hare Krishna mantra. He is considered by disciples, scholars and followers to be the latest avatar of Krishna Himself, based on extensive evidence found in Vedic literature. The International Society for Krishna Consciousness, ISKCON, is a continuation of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu’s sankirtan movement. Chaitanya’s humble, saintly demeanor and knowledge of Vedic conclusions persuaded prominent impersonalists that Krishna consciousness, worship of the Supreme Person, is life’s highest purpose. On Mahaprabhu’s instruction, the Six Goswamis of Vrindavan made a thorough analysis of the Vedas to show that Krishna bhakti, devotional service to Lord Krishna, is the essence of all Vedic teachings. Mahaprabhu’s extensive conversations with His devotees such as Ramananda Raya and Sanatana Goswami form the philosophical and scriptural basis of Gaudiya Vaishnavism, or Krishna consciousness. Chaitanya himself left only eight written verses, the Siksastaka, in which he teaches that chanting God’s names is the most simple and sublime spiritual practice for everyone, everywhere.

Leda

Though he gained recognition for his later essays and novels, Aldous Huxley started his writing career as a poet. Published in 1920, Leda is his fourth compilation of poetry. It begins with the passionate and slightly erotic poem “Leda”, which recalls the love affair between Queen Leda, the mother of Helen of Troy, and her swan, Zeus in disguise. Some short poems follow. The book ends with two long sections. The first, “Beauty,” is a short collection of vignettes where the author reflects on the concept of beauty through an ideal model of physical desire, Helen of Troy. The second, “Soles Occidere et Redire Possunt,” or “Suns Can Set, and Suns Can Rise Again,” is another long poem which reflects a day in the life of John Ridley, a deceased friend of Huxley’s, who was mentally challenged throughout his entire life. Author Aldous Huxley was an English writer and philosopher. He wrote nearly fifty books, both novels and non-fiction works—as well as wide-ranging essays, narratives, and poems. Born into the prominent Huxley family, he graduated from Oxford, with an undergraduate degree in English literature. Early in his career, he published short stories and poetry and edited the literary magazine Oxford Poetry, before going on to publish travel writing, satire, and screenplays. Huxley spent the latter part of his life in the United States, living in Los Angeles from 1937 until his death. By the end of his life, Huxley was widely acknowledged as one of the foremost intellectuals of his time. He was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature nine times and was elected Companion of Literature by the Royal Society of Literature in 1962. Also includes several ultra-rare previously unheard conversations with the esteemed intellectual.

Lennon was a complex man whose incredible body of work often obscured the sensitive, fragile man behind the music.

Life and Times of Frederick Douglass

Frederick Douglass was an American social reformer, abolitionist, orator, writer, and statesman. After escaping from slavery in Maryland, he became a national leader of the abolitionist movement in Massachusetts and New York, gaining note for his oratory and incisive antislavery writings. Accordingly, he was described by abolitionists in his time as a living counter-example to slaveholders’ arguments that slaves lacked the intellectual capacity to function as independent American citizens. Likewise, Northerners at the time found it hard to believe that such a great orator had once been a slave. This is his story.

Life In Dakota With General Custer – Ghost Of Little Bighorn

Since the Battle of Little Bighorn, George Armstrong Custer (1839-1876) possessed one of the most unique places in American history. Although he was a capable cavalry officer who served honorably during the Civil War, he remains one of the most instantly identifiable and famous military men in American history due to the fact he was killed during one of the country’s most well-known and ignominious defeats, the Battle of Little Bighorn. And yet, this one relatively insignificant battle during America’s Indian Wars has become one of the country’s most mythologized events and continues to fascinate Americans nearly 140 years later. Though he’s now best remembered for “Custer’s Last Stand”, Custer mastered the art of public relations, dressing impeccably and having newspaper correspondents accompany him on the campaign, all in an effort to help cultivate and enhance his legacy. For nearly 58 years, Elizabeth Bacon Custer was probably the most famous widow in the world. In this lively, fascinating, loving portrait of life on the plains with her already-famous husband, Libbie tells a civilized audience of the excitement, fun, and perils endured at a remote frontier post. Intelligent and beautiful, Libbie was a partner, confidant, and booster to the general, as well as an important figure in the social life of the posts he commanded. This book has been used as source material on the general’s life as well as the frontier army for well over a century. Celebrated among the prominent people of her day, Libbie never remarried after Custer’s death at the Little Bighorn in 1876. She spent the rest of her life writing and lecturing about him, burnishing his reputation and keeping his memory alive. Long a jewel of western Americana, this book continues to find and entertain

Looking Through the Bent Back Tulips – John Lennon The Secret Life of a Very Public Man

Who was the real John Lennon? We all know the music and the basic story, but this wildly passive aggressive kid from suburban Liverpool with a huge chip on his shoulder was an unlikely model for the international pop icon to come.

In this one-of-a-kind audio treasure by the world’s acknowledged foremost prolific Beatles biographer Geoffrey Giuliano, the real John Lennon is laid bare and a deeper understanding of his magnetic personality and timeless music emerges. Here is the perfect audio treasure for every committed Lennon fan, pop historian, casual listener, student of 1960s art and culture, curious commuter, as well as all school and university systems. Ladies and gentleman meet the real John Lennon!

Lord Dracula

Dracula author Bram Stoker was born on November 8, 1847 in Dublin. Stoker was bedridden with an unknown illness until he started school at the age of seven when he made a complete recovery. Of this time, Stoker wrote, “I was naturally thoughtful, and the leisure of long illness gave opportunity for many thoughts which were fruitful according to their kind in later years.” He was educated in a private school run by the Reverend William Woods. Stoker visited the English coastal town of Whitby in 1890, and that visit was said to be part of the inspiration for Dracula. He began writing novels while working as the manager for London’s Lyceum Theatre, beginning with The Snake’s Pass in 1890 and Dracula in 1897. Stoker was part of the literary staff of The Daily Telegraph in London, and he wrote other fiction, including the horror novels The Lady of the Shroud (1909) and The Lair of the White Worm (1911). Dracula is an epistolary novel, written as a collection of realistic but completely fictional diary entries, telegrams, letters, ship’s logs, and newspaper clippings, all of which added a level of detailed realism to the story, a skill which Stoker had developed as a newspaper writer. At the time of its publication, Dracula was considered a “straightforward horror novel” based on imaginary creations of supernatural life. “It gave form to a universal fantasy and became a part of popular culture.” Here then is the dark Lord Dracula!

Lord Of All Hearts Neem Karoli Baba Stories Of Devotion

Neem Karoli Baba known to his followers as Maharaj-ji – was a great Hindu guru, mystic, and devotee of Lord Hanuman. He is very well known outside India for being the spiritual master of a number of prominent Americans who traveled to India in the 1960s and 70s, including spiritual teachers Ram Dass, Bhagavan Das, and musicians Krishna Das and Jai Uttal. His ashrams are in Kainchi, Vrindavan, Rishikesh, Shimla, Neem Karoli village near Khimasepur in Farrukhabad, Bhumiadhar, Hanumangarhi, Delhi in India, and in Taos, New Mexico. Maharaji was a lifelong adept of bhakti-yoga, and encouraged service to others (seva) as the highest form of unconditional devotion to God. There can be no biography of him. Facts are few, stories many. He seems to have been known by different names in many parts of India, appearing and disappearing through the years. His non-Indian devotees of recent years knew him as Neem Karoli Baba, but mostly as “Maharajji” – a nickname so commonplace in India that one can often hear a tea vendor addressed thus. Just as he said, he was “nobody”. He gave no discourses; the briefest, simplest stories were his teachings. Usually, he sat or lay on a wooden bench wrapped in a plaid blanket while a few devotees sat around him. Visitors came and went; they were given food, a few words, a nod, a pat on the head or back, and they were sent away. There was gossip and laughter for he loved to joke. Orders for running the ashram were given, usually in a piercing yell across the compound. Sometimes he sat in silence, absorbed in another world to which we could not follow, but bliss and peace poured down on us. Who he was was no more than the experience of him.

Love Light & Beauty Swami Satchidananda The Simplicity Of Truth

Swami Satchidananda was the founder of Integral Yoga International. He taught that the birthright of all is to realize the spiritual unity behind the diversity throughout creation and live harmoniously as members of “one universal family”. Swami was born into a loving spiritual family on December 22nd in 1914 during the month known as Margali, the Dawn of the Devas. From an early age, Swami (or Ramaswamy as he was known at the time) displayed many spiritual tendencies and a deep dedication to the truth. Thus, at the age of 28 he decided to devote himself full time to his spiritual practice. There then followed a period of seeking the wisdom and blessing of various saints and sages. Although a sannyasin Satchidananda was active in serving others and was happy to use modern technology to disseminate the teachings of yoga. Like many great Saints, Satchidananda believed all religions could lead seekers to the same goal. His interfaith motto was “Truth Is One, Paths Are Many.” In 1966 the artist Peter Max invited him to New York this led to Satchidananda deciding to stay becoming an American citizen. In the west, he initiated many and lectured throughout the world. He often participated in interfaith initiatives. His mission was to bring people together in the spirit of harmony.

Magical Stories of The Vedas The Divine Pastimes of Sri Krishna – Enlightening Tales of the Supreme

Krishna – the name itself is somehow transcendental and evokes a certain distant familiarity and evocative longing. In fact, it is said the name of Krishna is non-different from Himself. The ancient Vedic Scriptures also confirm that Krishna, as the Supreme Personality Of Godhead, is therefore present in the sound vibration of His holy name. If Krishna’s name, and indeed Sanskrit itself, has this non-dual nature wherein that which is named and the name is one and the same, then the aspiring devotional yogi, can, by simply chanting Krishna’s name, either by itself or via the iconic Maha Mantra: HARE KRISHNA HARE KRISHNA KRISHNA KRISHNA HARE HARE HARE RAMA HARE RAMA RAMA RAMA HARE HARE actually associate eternally with the Lord via this unique transcendental sound vibration. This has been the way of Bhakti Yoga in the Vaishnava tradition for over five thousand years. To further extrapolate this mystical ideal, it is said by sages everything relating to Sri Sri Radha Krishna has the same liberating potency including Their transcendental pastimes on this earth in Their many forms. This inspirational, devotional, entertaining, one of a kind, genuinely mystical audiobook presents Bhagavan Sri Krishna in his many alluring and mystifying incarnations (known as Das Avatar) accompanied by an amazing production of sound effects, music and other talented performers which help tell these ancient fascinating tales so well. Here is the perfect audio companion for every serious aspiring yogi, confirmed devotee, student of eastern philosophy, curious commuter, or indeed anyone wishing to broaden the awareness of their true spiritual nature of the elemental essence of Sat Chit Ananda or eternity.

Mark Twain A Secret Life

Samuel Langhorne Clemens known by his pen name Mark Twain, was an American writer, humorist, entrepreneur, publisher, and lecturer. He was lauded as the “greatest humorist the United States has produced,”[and William Faulkner called him “the father of American literature” His novels include The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876) and its sequel, the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1884), the latter often called “The Great American Novel”. Twain was raised in Hannibal, Missouri, which later provided the setting for Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. He served an apprenticeship with a printer and then worked as a typesetter, contributing articles to the newspaper of his older brother Orion Clemens. He later became a riverboat pilot on the Mississippi River before heading west to join Orion in Nevada. He referred humorously to his lack of success at mining, turning to journalism for the Virginia City Territorial Enterprise. His humorous story, “The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County”, was published in 1865, based on a story that he heard at Angels Hotel in Angels Camp, California, where he had spent some time as a miner. The short story brought international attention and was even translated into French. His wit and satire, in prose and in speech, earned praise from critics and peers, and he was a friend to presidents, artists, industrialists, and European royalty. Twain earned a great deal of money from his writings and lectures, but he invested in ventures that lost most of it—such as the Paige Compositor, a mechanical typesetter that failed because of its complexity and imprecision. He filed for bankruptcy in the wake of these financial setbacks, but in time overcame his financial troubles with the help of Henry Huttleston Rogers. He eventually paid all his creditors in full, even though his bankruptcy relieved him of having to do so. Twain was born shortly after an appearance of Halley’s Comet, and he predicted that he would “go out with it” as well
