A Call to Humanity - Revolutionary Thoughts on the Direction for Spiritual and Social Reform in Our Time
Description
From the back of the Book

"In the world of today, one can be at peace with oneself only if one's neighbor is also at peace. The continents have become closer to each other. With the modern means of communication, the vast world of ours has contracted. We must learn to coexist and cultivate peace, harmony, love, and universal brotherhood. The whole world has to live like one family. The welfare of the entire world is every human being's concern."
-Swami Rama

A Call to Humanity is a message to those of both East and West, a description of what unites all of humanity. It evokes that inner capacity for peace and union that is universal and inspire the reader to develop in him self the mindfulness that "love all and excludes none." Swami Rama's work seeks to unite science and spirituality; East and West; the contemporary world and the traditional wisdom. It urges reader to examine their attitude and feelings, and to set aside all that seems to divide or create conflict. The essence of this message is that the modern men and women have the power to experience that deep state of peace, harmony, and love within that transforms human life.

About the Author

Yogi, scientist, philosopher, humanitarian, and mystic poet, Swami Rama is the founder and spiritual head of the Himalayan International Institute of Yoga Science and Philosophy, with its headquarters in Honesdale, Pennsylvania and therapy and educational center throughout the world. He was born in a Himalayan valley of Uttar Pradesh, India, in 1925 and was initiated and anointed in early childhood by a great sage of the Himalayas. He studied with many adepts, and then traveled to Tibet to study with his grandmaster. From 1949 to 1952 he held the prestige and dignity of Shankaracharya (spiritual leader) in Karvirpitham in the South of India. He then turned to the Himalayas to intensify his meditative practice in the cave monasteries and to establish an ashram in Rishikesh.

Later he continued his investigation of Western psychology and philosophy at several European universities, and he taught in Japan before coming to the United States in 1969. The following year he served as a consultant to the Voluntary Controls Project of the Research Department of the Menninger Foundation. There he demonstrated, under laboratory conditions, precise control over his autonomic nervous system and brain. The findings of that research increased the scientific community's understanding of the human ability to control autonomic functioning and to attain previously unrecognized levels of consciousness.

Shortly thereafter, Swami Rama founded the Himalayan Institute as a means to synthesize the ancient teachings of the East with the modern approaches of the West. He has played a major role in bringing the insights of yoga psychology and philosophy to the attention of the physicians and psychologists of the West. He continues to teach students around the world while intensifying his writing and meditative practices. He is the author of many books and currently spends most of his time in the mountains of Northern India and in Pennsylvania, U.S.A.

Testimonials
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
