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...

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...

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

By: Dada Bhagwan

First comes, serving your mother and father, they are the ones who have given birth to you, then comes the service to your guru. They have obliged you since childhood by suffering many difficulties, and yet they have raised you, educated you and instilled moral values in you. One should never overlook the humility and reverence for them in this entire life. A huge gap has formed between the old generation and the new generation.

Maintaining Samata during Like and Dislike (Hindi Dadavani March-2018)

By: Dada Bhagwan

Absolutely revered Dada Bhagwan reveals the reality of the world that, “There are only two things in this world, the pure Soul and circumstances.” The pure Soul is permanent while circumstances are temporary and are of the non-Self and are entirely dependent on external factors. One becomes engrossed in that which he likes, while in that which he dislikes, he has abhorrence and he continues to suffer; all of these are still weaknesses. If your opinion changes, then equan...

Gnani Purush - Part 1 (Gujarati)

By: Dada Bhagwan; Deepakbhai Desai, Editor

To meet a Gnani Purush (Self-Realized One), and to access their spiritual power to achieve spiritual enlightenment, is extremely rare. One such Gnani Purush of recent time is Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan. The book “Gnani Purush – Part 1”, describes his early childhood life before he attained spontaneous Self Realization. He went through the same incidents that we have all gone through, but what he learnt from each incident and how he tackled every problem he faced, is described in this book.
