When a teenager I worked for the brother of the autor of this book in Kendal. He survived the attempt of Everest that ended in tragedy with the deaths of Mallory & Irvine. this book covers his life as a doctor in South India and is his autobiography but sadly is now out of print. He was an early European that saw Tibet before the Chinese invasion.

This was a great CD of rocking music from the early days before Sonny Boy Wiliamson came to London. It made a seventy three year old guy dane again.


Dreaming Yourself Awake: Lucid Dreaming and Tibetan Dream Yoga for Insight and Transformation

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent book, 10 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Allan Wallace brings words of clear light knowledge onto this subject of observing the flow in dreams affects us with his deep insite.
The inner & the outer flow of events both those that arise from our every day life and those hidden beneath the surface are displayed in this book.
The Diamond Sutra states "Like a tiny drop of dew, or a bubble floating in a stream;
Like a flash of lightning in a summer cloud,
Or a flickering lamp, an illusion, a phantom, or a dream."
Words echoed by Lama Tsong Khapa in his prayer "The three principle aspects of the path" with the simply statement comparing events that arise like a bubble as is sung by the local West Ham soccer fans "I'm forever blowing bubbles my dreams just fade & die.
Lama Tsong Khapa says The fluctuation of our body and life is like a bubble of water; remember death, for we perish so quickly. After death, the effects of black and white karma pursue us as a shadow follows a body. Finding certainty in this, I request inspiration to always be careful to abandon even the slightest negative action and to complete the accumulation of virtue.

5.0 out of 5 stars An easy read of this old Vedic theme about the end of Kali Yuga, 14 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kalki Purana (Paperback)
This book is useful if you wish to try & find comparisons between western traditions around the end of this era.
For me it should be read alongside of Tantric Buddhist "Kalachakra Stainless Light" traditions and the Christian Book of Revelations; because this this covers the Hindu Vedic views of the end of the age.
It may seem simple to the more educated readers but because there is no other translation that is apparently published at present & the excellent translations from Vedam Books India of Puranas; we have at least congratulate this presentation.
Meditate & consider its words even if you are not satisfied with this publication because we seem to be in the Iron Age of conflict.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Blast From The Past From Ronnie Scott's Club, 21 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Live in London (Audio CD)
From the relaxed voice of Ronnie Scott as he introduces Johnny Griffin accompanied by Stan Tracy on piano; this leads into a mellow version of "All the things you are" with on bass Malcolm Cecil & Jackie Dougan on drums.
This CD reeks with nostalgia of the old London Town in the days that The Beatles still hung out in Hamburg & the world was innocent shrugging of the Cuban Crisis with the death of a president.
This brings back the days of Ronnie's when the sweat dripped down the musicians face onto his keys.
This is the reason for archives just pop on the CD and remember how we arrived at this stage.
There is also great versions of "Straight No Chaser" & "Little Man You've Had a Busy Day".
It finishes with an interview with Johnny of 5.40 minutes.
Recording quality also is great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mango Purple Grape Juice, 20 Nov. 2012

Due to catching a stomach bug & unable to hold down solids I decide to do a juice fast.
Maybe I'll get good live yoghurt to add the right balance for my stomach.
