BOOK EXCERPT:

»The Tibetan Book of the Dead« (Bardo Thodol) is considered one of the great wisdom books of mankind. Since its metaphorical language is hard to understand for non-Buddhists, the author's concern was to carefully transfer the main contents into a modern language while preserving the poetry of the original. Knowledge and experience as a psychologist as well as his own meditation practice and near-death experiences helped him to detach the universal spiritual truths from the Buddhist context and translate them into contemporary images. This has resulted in a longer prose poem as the main text, which describes the different phases of dying until well beyond the last breath. Following the original, it can be read aloud to a dying person to support him or her in transition. Practical instructions help to create an appropriate atmosphere and to structure the reading in time. The book is designed in such a way that it can also be used for personal meditation on death and transience and for exploring one's own consciousness. The appendix has a chapter that relates the subject of death and dying to the integral model of consciousness. The extensive essay by Ken Wilber discusses the place of »The Tibetan Book of the Dead« in modern psychology and spirituality. Music recommendations and useful links complete the content. »The book is a short and very practical guide for dying. It should not be read once but it is a workbook for preparing to the important moment of the death. Highly recommended!« Traudel Reiß in »Buddhismus aktuell« 3/2010 The book is a revised and expanded edition of »Das andere Totenbuch« (2009, ISBN 978-3-8391-0645-7).

BOOK EXCERPT:

The Book of the Dead is a unique collection of funerary texts from a wide variety of sources, dating from the fifteenth to the fourth century BC. Consisting of spells, prayers and incantations, each section contains the words of power to overcome obstacles in the afterlife. The papyruses were often left in sarcophagi for the dead to use as passports on their journey from burial, and were full of advice about the ferrymen, gods and kings they would meet on the way. Offering valuable insights into ancient Egypt, The Book of the Dead has also inspired fascination with the occult and the afterlife in recent years.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Control of Integral Processes with Dead Time provides a unified and coherent review of the various approaches devised for the control of integral processes, addressing the problem from different standpoints. In particular, the book treats the following topics: How to tune a PID controller and assess its performance; How to design a two-degree-of-freedom control scheme in order to deal with both the set-point following and load disturbance rejection tasks; How to modify the basic Smith predictor control scheme in order to cope with the presence of an integrator in the process; and how to address the presence of large process dead times. The methods are presented sequentially, highlighting the evolution of their rationale and implementation and thus clearly characterising them from both academic and industrial perspectives.

On this life-affirming journey, you will visit the “Otherside,” reach out to spirits, and become a walker between worlds to experience healing and empowerment. “Walking the Twilight Path shows us that life is a wonderful experience that can only be fully appreciated once we accept our physical mortality.
