I really enjoyed that book.

Me too. It's got one of the clearest explanations of how karmic traces arise from ignorance, aversion, and grasping. Probably helps that the author stayed at a Christian school for a time.

I just finished reading...

The Magus Of Java by Kosta Danaos

That was an interesting read, kinda read like a wushu movie but there was some interesting concepts in there
that pertain to modern magick, it's either you notice it or you don't - it's pretty buried deep, lol.

The Subtle Body: The Story of Yoga in America by Stefanie Syman.

A fascinating historical look at how yoga was received in America. It helps to show how yoga became part of the health movement and where popular western conception of yoga came from.
It doesn't matter what they say, in the jealous games people play - The Go-Gos

For my will is as strong as yours, and my kingdom is as great.... you have no power over me.

I read now The Ocean of story by Somadeva. Interesting book by a hindu Shivaist priest about Vidiadharas, supernatural beings. In eastern philosophy people who obtain through mediattion supernatural powers could be between such beings.
