The Word Speaks to the Faustian Man: Volume Three (A Transliteration, Translation and Interpretation of the Pasthanatrayi and Sankara's Bhasya for the Participation of Contemporary Man)
Description
From the Jacket:

First died the Word. Then died God and then the world and then man. The Word was no longer holy as it once was. No longer was it the Truth and Being and the revelation of the Truth and Being. The revelation degenerated into interpretation, into referentiality without the referent. Telos become 'values', commitment convenience, truth consensus and man himself a tool of language, a tool of his tool.

God died because 'man' replaced him and man died because God deserted him.

This work seeks to revive the awareness of the Word, the awareness we lost without the awareness of the loss. 'A triumph of creative hermeneutical imagination', this 'bold and innovative' vision has many 'deep and searching' insights to offer, old as well as new. Insights which no sensitive soul would ever like to ignore or to forget.

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 !
