If you like the smell of a burning forest, this is for you!

1

Bought this because it was rated as excellent. Very disapointed with it. It was exactly what it claimed not to be, smokey. There is no lingering nice aroma except of burning wood while it's burning. And it smells like nothing afterwards, even when burning it everyday.

Gautama Siddharta 2600

4

These are the words I used to make the search on Banyen Books website.
And I found this only book.
without adding 2600, I had 12 books found;
and with Gautama only, the total came to 26 books.
Many other books will provide information about Gautama.

 

195 vs 196 Patanjali Sutra

4

Initially I was searching Banyen Books website only using the word 'Patanjali'
and I found 93 books or entries.   
Then I tried the search with 'Patanjali 196' and I found ten books.  
Then I added a twist and searched with 'Patanjali 195' and I found one book.
The intriguing thing is that it mentions 195 sutras
whereas all the other ten books mention 196 sutras. 
 

Great reminder and as good as a similar book

We need to be more connected to trees. Enjoyed this one and also If Trees Could Talk by Holly Worton because it has a workbook to learn to connect yourself

About the French translation

5

In the 80's I went to see Jacques Weiss, the French translator in Paris as I had quite a few questions about the book.  He immediately switched me to another book, 'La cosmogonie d'Urantia' his French title for the Urantia book.  Now in 2020 I understand why in a sense it answered all my questions about Spalding's book.  Still a few details might need clarification.  But in terms of deeper understanding, it fullfilled everything 100%.

Re: your review of January 17,
may I ask which chapters did you like most?

small typo

it shoule read 'illumination'

paper 12

Urantia book paper 15

4

I recently spent time on reading paper 15 of the Urantia Book.
It is about astrophysics and the universe which is observed by the astronomers.
Its title is: "the seven superuniverses" because it is the way the inhabited creation is segmented
in the Urantia Book.  What is absolutely staggering information is the number of inhabited planets
that the book is claiming that exist in the entire creation.  
I just want to inspire readers to read this paper 15 as it addresses
general questions like the age of the universe and the speed of light
in somewhat indirect ways.  
 

Water Is...

5

Water is... magic, life, motion, communication, memory, rhythm, vibration, beauty, story, prayer, wisdom and ultimately joy! Read Water is... if you are striving to make the world a better place and need to know that there are others like you that can see water for all that it is. Be fascinated! Be inspired! 

How to be sick

I somehow heard about this book and ordered it from the library. I have been living with chronic pain off and on for a year or so. I would consider this book to be gentle in the sense that it is a combination of Toni Bernhard's story and includes Buddhist based practices that are accessible to someone like me who may be reading the book in the middle of the night because she can't sleep. 

 

Kahou's delights

5

Kahou Nakabayashi's 2019 calendar is filled with delightful artwork, just as was her 2018 calendar.  Since there is no image available to entice buyers, I suggest taking a peek at her work on Facebook.  I recently ordered some original art from the 2019 calendar which she managed to ship to here in Canada.  Delightful treasures.  Poetry in Japanese and in English as a bonus on the calendar, lovely.

Loved the book

I could hear music in my breath as I was turning each page.
