  • Anti-Architecture and Deconstruction: The triumph of Nihilism

    Anti-Architecture and Deconstruction: The triumph of Nihilism

    $ 12.00

    Author: Nikos A. Salingaros

    Description: “In this series of learned and moving critical essays, Salingaros and various close associates argue that we understand life in architecture as the background to human community – the preparation for our dwelling place. One day, perhaps, Salingaros will be required reading for architects. If that happens it could just be that a new orthodoxy will emerge, in which humility, order, and public spirit – the virtues which have been chased from the discipline by the starchitects – will be the norm.” – Roger Scruton. “What are the ideas and aims of the current architectural elite? And what might explain why these flawed ideas have such a powerful hold on so many people? This is a stunning and deep book, as interesting for its analyses of psychology and politics as it is for its discussion of architecture.” – Ray Sawhill. “This book should be required reading in every institution concerned with the teaching of architecture, planning, and all other aspects of the built environment. It should also be read by every person claiming to be an architect.” – James Stevens Curl. “I have just finished reading this long-awaited book. It’s worth reading, even if you do not need convincing that Decon is a fraud. The revelation is the depth and extent of the fraud.” – Andrés Duany. “There are some serious thinkers today, such as Christopher Alexander and Nikos A. Salingaros, who believe we are due for – or at least need to have – a major paradigm shift in architecture, to save it. Unfortunately, architects on the whole are not very literate, so don’t read theoretical books and critical articles by such thinkers. Mostly they look at pictures.” – Paul H. Malo. “Nothing in recent years beats the latest from Nikos Salingaros,’Anti-Architecture and Deconstruction’ a remarkable book. Nikos writes architecture criticism of the highest order. His genius lies in his ability to build from the specific to the general, which is the opposite of the tendency of academic theorists of architecture. His commentary on Libeskind, on Tschumi, on Derrida, on Charles Jencks is definitive.” – Francis Morrone. Nikos Salingaros books Anti-Architecture and Deconstruction. A Theory of Architecture and ‘Principles of Urban Structure’ are three fundamental texts, among the most significant of the past few years.” – Vilma Torselli.

  • Behind her Wedding Veil: Struggles of my Rebellious Mother

    Behind her Wedding Veil: Struggles of my Rebellious Mother

    $ 10.00

    Author: Kk. Panday

    Description: Editor’s Impressions: Through the history of one family, the author gives us a unique glimpse of the evolution of Nepal over the past century. The personal journeys of his grandmother, mother, father and not least of the author himself have a great deal to tell us about where Nepal has come from and where it is going. Though this book ranges far and wide, it is always to the greatest single influence in his life-his mother-that the author returns. His insights into the problems faced by his mother, as well as his grandmother, tell us a great deal about how far some (though unfortunately not all) women in this society have progressed. Today women all over Nepal are demanding their rights, but his mother\\’s struggle was a lonely and courageous one which was to have a profound impact on her son, and was to take him all over the world and back again. The book is a fitting tribute to a remarkable woman on the centenary of her birth. -Scott Berry

  • Bonpo Dzogchen teachings

    Bonpo Dzogchen teachings

    $ 19.95

    Author: Lopon Tenzin Namdak

    Description: Nowadays there are two principal philosophical traditions followed by Tibetan Lamas. The first is found among the Sarmapas, or Newer Schools, employing the Prasangika Madhyamaka view of Chandrakirti, not only in explicating the real meaning of the Sutra system but also in interpretation of the Tantras. The second is found among the followers of the two Older Schools, the Nyingmapa and the Bonpo, who emphasize the Dzogchen point of view in elucidating their understanding of the Higher Tantras. In the Older Schools, Dzogchen, the Great Perfection, which lies beyond the process of Tantric transformation, is regarded as the quintessential teaching of the Buddha pointing directly to the Nature of Mind and its intrinsic awareness, known as Rigpa. However, according to Lopon Tenzin Namdak Yongdzin Rinpoche, the leading Dzogchen master among the Bonpo Lamas living today: It is necessary for us as practitioners to know what Dzogchen is, how to practice it, and the result of this practice. Lopon Rinpoche undertakes this task in a series of nine teachings he gave some years ago to Western students interested in the view of Dzogchen and its practice in meditation. Here the Lopon compares the Dzogchen view with the views of Madhyamaka, Chittamatra, Tantra and Mahamudra, clearly indicating the similarities and the differences among them. Unlike the traditional educational system found in other Tibetan monasteries, at Tashi Menri Monastery and at Triten Norbutse Monastery, both now re-established in India and Nepal respectively, Dzogchen is not restricted to private meditation instruction only. Rather, it is brought out into the daylight of the marketplace of philosophical ideas and discussed in relation to the viewpoints of Sutra and Tantra. The Loponâs exceptionally clear exposition of these various views, which have consequences for oneâs meditation practice, will be of interest to Western students and practitioners. Transcribed and edited by John Myrdhin Reynolds from the Lopons original lectures, the teachings are provided here with a new introduction and annotations, as well as an appendix with a brief biography of the Lopon and a sketch of the educational system at his monastery of Triten Norbutse in Nepal.
