Sacred Books

By: M. Winternitz

THE period covered by the inception, the publication, and the completion of the Sacred Books of the East exactly coincides with the thirty-four years that I have spent in Oxford. When I matriculated, Professor Max Muller, the editor of the series, was about to begin work on the first volume, which appeared while I was still an undergraduate. I lost no time in making his acquaintance, for it was the influence of one of his works that had stimulated me to begin under Pro...

Habeltt sua lata libelli-not only after they have been published, but sometimes even before they are printed. It was in the spring of 1894 that the late Professor Max Muller first suggested to me that I should compile a General Index of the names and subject-matter for the complete series of the Sacred Books of the East. Such an Index, he thought, would be a great help to all students of the Sacred Books of tile East, and of the greatest value for the study of the history of religions.

Survival Scenarios and Suggestions

By: Richard Scroggins

My primary goal is sharing the hunting and survival knowledge that I have from my experience growing up and living in the country, as well as my time in the military as an Emergency Management Specialist. I have always been interested in primitive skills, and in preserving them for the future. I also believe that the modern culture that we have built is based on a very fragile framework of technology(i.e. Electricity), that could collapse at any time due to a natural or ...

Ruling Chiefs of Hawaii

By: S. M. Kamakau

In 1961 the first edition of the English translation of Samuel Kamakau's Ruling Chiefs of Hawaii was published by Kamehameha Schools Press. Many contributed to make its publication possible. A group of Hawaiian scholars was first selected by the trustees of Bishop Museum to translate Kamakau's florid literary style into readable English. The group included Mary Kawena Pukui, Thomas G. Thrum, Lahilahi Webb, Emma Davidson Taylor, and John Wise. Mary Kawena Pukui then revie...

Many famous chiefs, mentioned in Hawaiian history, were descended from Hana-laa-nui. The ruling chiefs (noho alii) of Hawaii were of that particular lineage (mookuauhau), and with additions from those of the other islands, the genealogy of Hawaii's chiefs and their ancestors was made complete. Umi-a-Liloa [that is, Umi-son-of-Liloa] was a famous chief, and the reason for his fame was that it was he who united all of the districts of Hawaii through wars. The kingdom beca...

La Transformación

Considerar las informaciones, no como un servicio retórico de palabras, sonidos e imágenes amontonadas, sino como un servicio de mensajes, que se elaboran aportando noticias, daros, opiniones, como alimento intelectual, moral y espiritual para la vida de las personas. Ello requiere de una sólida preparación profesional, más allá de lo empírico, recalificando el rol profesional en la dimensión de un operador cultural, líder y gesto y de las informaciones, autónomo y au...

Guide for Hindu Missionaries

By: Siddhant Bhartee

Hinduism is the oldest faith in the world. It is also the largest faith in the world with followers worldwide but as Hinduism does not believe in official conversion, there is no record to prove this. We have seen a sustained movement against Hinduism in Bharat (India) recently by Communists, Liberals, Secularists who have aligned with the Islamists and Christian-missionaries against the last bastion of truth in the world. This pamphlet aims at providing an ideological b...

I.Conversion 1. Messaging - Hinduism to the neophyte is vast and confusing. Too many branches of philosophy for the intellectual seeker. Too many gods for the literal seeker. To make it simple, the message needs to be condensed to a single sentence. “Say ‘Krishna’ 4 times with complete love today and He will forgive every sin you do today.” It’s a masterstroke. “Say ‘Krishna’ 4 times with complete love and He will forgive every sin you do today...

El silencio

By: Valentino Valentino

El silencio y sus significaciones

Existe algo más tétrico que el pánico: es el silencio. Un hombre puede aguantarlo todo, el ataque de las fuerzas de la naturaleza, el capricho de los dioses, la entropía sin control del Cosmos, pero no el insufrible silencio. En la Prehistoria, el hombre mataba a seres infinitamente superiores y más grandes que él; sometía a mamuts, osos, cisnes, buitres, para hacer flautas de sus huesos y evitar con ello el duro silencio y así ganarle la batalla. Algunos encuentran e...

Leopardi and Schopenhauer : an English translation of "Leonardi e ...

By: Francesco De Sanctis; Thomas Haskell Simpson

possibly the first English translation of this interesting work by great literary critic Francesco De Sanctis, one of the fathers of the Italian national independence movement, later the young nation's Minister of Public Instruction, and author of a crucial history of Italian literature.

"...Hegel is the greatest sinner, because the public’s head can't make room for intellectual intuition. With his dialectical process, Hegel gave an appearance of harmony to this philosophical monstrosity. He was its designer and architect, making the original sin durable. So Schopenhauer tore him to pieces. Charlatan, insipid, stupid, nauseating, an ignoramus whose shamelessness was touted as wisdom by cowardly followers; the true author of our century’s intellectua...

Kahea Loko

By: The Pacific American Foundation

Kahea Loko is "the call of the pond. " From the ocean currents surging through the stone-walled channels to the excited cries of haumana (students) discovering fishpond life, the loko ia (fishpond) calls to us in many ways. From the broad perspective of the ahupuaa (major land division), the loko ia helps us to appreciate the connection between land and sea and to experience the rhythm of tides and seasons. From an intimate perspective, the pond leads us to discover h...

"Let that which is unknown become known. " John Papa Ii (1959) Let us not allow the broken walls of the loko ia (fishponds) to separate us from that which was known and practiced in the past. The foundations of the walls are still evident, as are the wisdom and knowledge of our kupuna. The reflections of the sun, moon, and stars upon our waters are as old as time. Let these be beacons of light to guide our haumana (students) to these ponds of knowledge. Let us help ...
