Learning Hebrew From Genesis : Aleph Edition

By: Benjamin Lee Cooper

This is a full grammar teaching of "Biblical" Hebrew from a fluent author in a very unique style. Although precise spelling of words is important, this is not a teaching method that focuses on vowels. I do teach all of the vowels, and all of the important times when vowels matter, but readers should be able to one day read Hebrew without vowels, and that is one of the reasons for this teaching method. More focus is put on grammar and the roots of words than on vowels or ...

1.2 Should I learn Modern or Biblical? The first thing you must decide is if it would be “Modern Hebrew” or “Biblical Hebrew” that you want to learn. Modern Hebrew is not the original Hebrew of creation, its not the original Hebrew of the Garden of Eiden, and its not the original Hebrew that Noach, Avraham, and Yaaqov spoke. There are some added and removed grammar aspects and many added words that are not in the Biblical Hebrew. If you are going to be spending a lot o...

Liberation is Attained Through Total Surrender at the Feet of the ...

By: Dada Bhagwan

The Vitaraag Lords have said, “There is nothing at all that needs to be done for moksha. Just seek the One who has become free Himself; the One who has crossed the ocean of worldly life Himself, and He has the power to help countless others attain the same. Seek such a liberated Gnani Purush and follow his footsteps without any fear. If you want to attain moksha, then you will never be able to do so without the presence of a living Gnani, without having surrendered total...

Achieving Atonement

By: Derek Philip Thomoson

At the heart of Christianity is the atonement, God at one with his creation. But how is this being achieved? Numerous theories have been proposed but none generally accepted. The historic church councils were too busy with the trinity to turn their attention to the atonement. Consequently the church is divided by different views of what happened on the cross. Critics from outside the church are quick to point out the problems, such as questionable ethics applied to God, ...

Atonement is not a course of action, but an end, the goal God is seeking to achieve. God’s ways are often said to be a mystery beyond human comprehension. I. H. Marshall (2008, p. 63) said, “It is true that the concept of God the Son suffering and dying is paradoxical and incomprehensible.” Although God’s inner nature is a mystery, his actions in creation are open to investigation. Human nature pursues understanding. Some Christians object to the questioning of their pre...

The Many Dangers of Prejudice (Hindi Dadavani June-2018)

By: Dada Bhagwan

Why would these grahs (planets) come to obstruct us? What have we spoiled for them that they would obstruct us? In reality, the nine grahs within: aagrah, duragrah, matagrah, mithyagrah, hathagrah, kadagrah, satyagrah, parigrah and purvagrah, are the ones that are obstructing us. Based on what you have heard or read about a thing, a circumstance or a person, you bind an opinion for that without even verifying its truth. Gradually it turns into prejudice. Such prejudices ...

Christian Myths

By: Benjamin Lee Cooper

My other books are books that do not deal with much doctrine, whereas this book debunks most of the treasured doctrines of most of Christianity. This is the very first finished version of this book, so it will have many spelling and grammar errors in it, and some of my sentences might need to be improved in the future. Thank you for your patience.

This book is not meant to pick on or make fun of christians. I am saved (born again) and have been since I was five years old. In this book I am going to assume that you have read my book “What is Truth?”. It is not required that you read it, but in that book I cover the major myths like the Aramaic Myth, the Evolution religion, the Nephilim Myth, and many other topics to help the reader to be able to Trust God's Bible, and to know that it is the truth. If you have not r...

What is Truth : Hey Edition

By: Benjamin Lee Cooper

If you have doubts about how authentic the Bible is, or if God really had it written for us, or if you want to know how the Bible came to us, or if you have deeper curiosities about mathematics, languages that influenced the Bible, or the history relating to the Bible, then this book is for you.

What is the measuring device that says what writings get to be part of the Bible? Do individual people get to tell God “These are the writings I think should be in the Bible, and so these writings are the only thing I need to base my spiritual life on.”? Do you think God is going to accept that? Do you think we get to choose whatever instructions we want to obey from God but we can throw out whatever ones we want and say they are not part of the Bible? Do Corporations or...

Sundara Kanda: Hanuman's Odyssey

By: BS Murthy

If Mahabharata's Bhagvad-Gita is taken as a philosophical guide, Ramayana's Sundara Kãnda is sought for spiritual solace; many believe that reading Sundara Kãnda or hearing it recited would remove all hurdles and usher in good tidings! Miracles apart, it's in the nature of Sundara Kãnda to inculcate fortitude and generate hope in one and all. After all, isn't it a depiction of how Hanuman goes about his errand against all odds! Again, won't it portray how Seetha, on the ...

Canto 33 - Genesis of Exile Seeing Seetha’s demeanour change Gladdened Hanuman’s heart no end. Folding his hands in reverence Approached he then Rama’s wife. Find thee grieving for some time What doth make thee feel so sad? Thy eyes that are all welled up Make they clear that thou are hurt. From thy bearing one can see Come that thou from noble stock. Tend I think that thou are none But an angel strayed to earth. Wonder thou could be ...

Puppets Of Faith : Theory of Communal Strife

By: BS Murthy

Terrorism could be the heading of the running chapter in human history though strife had always been its grand title. Assorted terrorist groups to espouse their parochial causes have come to target their ideological opponents with utter cynicism. At least they have an articulated grievance and identified opponents with defined terror zones that are amenable for containment and redressal and or both at some stage or the other. But what of the jihadi terrorism and how i...

Pitfalls of Faith If the ecstasy of the Quran is the soul of Islam, the legend of Muhammad is the mind of the Musalman. The exalted sense of his pedigree could have made Muhammad fiercely honest, even in the state of deprivation. It is to be appreciated that neither his insignificance as an orphan affected his self-worth nor his poverty dented his self-esteem. While nature endowed him with a shrewd mind his destiny seems to have helped him cultivate a sense of purpose. ...

Ācārya Pūjyapāda’s Samādhitantram : Supreme Meditation: Supreme Me...

By: Vijay K. Jain; Vijay K. Jain

The book emphasizes that the body and the soul are utterly different; we tend to pay attention to the body at the expense of the soul.

The one who entertains delusion that the body and the like are but the soul is the extroverted-soul (bahirātmā), the one who entertains no delusion about mental states – imperfections like attachment and aversion, and the soul-nature – is the introverted-soul (antarātmā), and the one who is utterly pure and rid of all karmic dirt is the pure-soul (paramātmā).

By: Vijay K Jain; Vijay K Jain

The book is a masterpiece work on Jainism, the most profound religion in South Asia. In its three sections, it discusses the ideas of knowledge, objects-of-knowledge and the conduct required to attain perfect knowledge, i.e., omniscience.

The man who, having grasped the Words of the Omniscient Lord, destroys delusion (moha), attachment (rāga), and aversion (dvesa), gets rid of all miseries, in a short time. - page 103

Sincerity with the goal of becoming free (Hindi Dadavani May-2018)

By: Dada Bhagwan

How can you remain sincere to Dada? By following the Agnas. The Agnas are actually a great thing. With the grace and the Agnas of the Gnani Purush, and your sincerity towards your goal, everything can change. You should put into application whatever Dada says, you should not keep a single opinion that differs from Dada. Sincere does not mean ‘without mistakes’; rather a sincere person has unity of heart, he does not allow separation to arise [with the other person]. Howe...
