Namaste.Un roman de aventuri spirituale în Nepal continuă povestea călătoriei lui Sega începută în Namaste. Un roman de aventuri spirituale în India. După cele trei luni petrecute în ashramul lui Osho din Pune, Sega îşi ia zborul spre Himalaya şi aterizează la Kathmandu, fără să-şi fi propus să cucerească Everestul ori să-l întâlnească pe Yeti, ci să-şi prelungească viza pentru India, să urmeze un curs de Vipassana în izolare şi să facă o vizită la Lumbini, unde s-a născut Siddhartha Gautama, cel care a devenit Buddha. Ca să-şi încerce puterile, nu recurge la rezervări prin internet şi nici la ghiduri turistice sau persoane de contact, lăsându-se cu totul la voia întâmplării. Ceea ce îl va costa, desigur... Soarta îi scoate în cale personaje dintre cele mai stranii, precum monstrul din Lumbini, deghizat într-un sadhu, fraţii Devkota care îl momesc în excursii pe care nu şi le-a dorit niciodată, Ana, frumoasa rusoaică şi Igor, prietenul ei psihopat, sau Lama, ghidul nebun care îl duce în Shangri-La, locul ascuns în inima munţilor. De la rafting pe râul Trisuli la călărit elefanţi prin junglă, de la căluşarii din Sauraha la Sarangkot, locul de unde se vede Annapurna în toată splendoarea, din Thamel şi până la Kapilavastu, palatul prinţului Siddhartha, din Centrul Dharmashringa, unde meditează 10 zile în izolare, până în arestul politiei, unde petrece o noapte după gratii, Sega are parte de tot felul de peripeţii care îl schimbă pentru totdeauna, revelându-i sensuri din ce în ce mai adânci ale salutului Namaste şi îndepărtându-l de toate ca să-l aducă mai aproape de sine însuşi. Namaste e un salut indian folosit şi în Nepal, însoţit de o înclinare uşoară a corpului, cu palmele împreunate în dreptul inimii.

Jurnalul de India a fost scris inițial ca un blog de călătorie, creat cu scopul de a-mi ține la curent prietenii cu tot ceea ce făceam. Astfel am reușit să îmi păstrez amintirile intacte, scriindu-le chiar în timp ce le trăiam. India e o țară fascinantă. Niciun jurnal, film sau album cu poze nu poate să îi redea adevărata frumusețe. În această carte vorbesc despre India din diferite perspective: a omului care o urăște, a omului speriat, frustrat, uimit, curios, fermecat și beat de frumusețea acesteia, dar și a omului care iubește India și nu ar mai pleca niciodată de acolo. În aceste pagini vei găsi o poveste adevărată cu persoane reale, aventuri, trăiri spirituale, prietenie și, bineînțeles, farmecul culturii indiene. Te invit să trăiești alături de mine această călătorie!

There are some words that just make your skin crawl. You know the kind of words I am talking about, those that no matter how they are said have no redeeming qualities. I learned one of those words last summer – Kamlari. It is a Nepali word for the female children who are sold by their own parents into slavery working in the home of upper caste families. Many of these girls are sold when they are as young as five or six years old and put to work for 14 to 18 hours a day in the most horrific of living conditions. There are organizations rescuing and trying to make a better life for these children. I saw children living in orphanages that were far better off than many of the non-orphaned children of Nepal. Many of the children living at Nepal Orphans Home have been given back a sense of childhood and family that had been lost to them through poverty and the horrific practice of female child slavery know as Kamlari. Michael talked about the spirt and warmth of the children after being rescued. I still wasn’t quite sure I understood the realities of the world he described, yet I knew that the work he was doing was changing the lives of so many children; children born into unbearably cruel situations were being given back a chance to be children and live as a part of a loving family. Michael Hess is such a modest man, he seems to me to be the type of person who very quietly goes about doing the right thing (significant things just because they are the right thing) never seeking acknowledgement or praise for himself. He works tirelessly in his efforts to improve the lives of others and sincerely takes joy from the happiness and well being of the children and community members he works with. As we sat talking that particular morning I was beginning to realize that while I wanted to help the people of Nepal tell their stories, it was really Michael’s story that someone should be trying to tell. Follow one teacher's journey inspired by something as frivolous as the classic rock song, “Kathmandu” by Bob Sager, a passion for traveling, and a combined love for teaching and writing, as her life is changed forever. “One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things” Henry Miller. Two organizations to support teacher professional development are very much responsible for this story: Indiana Writing Project a part of the National Writing Project, and The Lilly Foundation Teacher Creativity Fellowship Grant program. Without either of these wonderful organizations this story might not have been told. It is to Michael Hess, Volunteer Nepal and Nepal Orphans Home that I lovingly dedicate this story and any proceeds made from it to. This book is a free iBook. Please consider making a donation of any amount possible (maybe the amount you would have felt comfortable paying for the book) to help continue the work being done in Nepal: Donate by Mail If you prefer to make your donation by check, please send to: Nepal Orphans Home, Inc PO Box 1254 Davidson, NC 28036

In May, 2012, Pope Benedict XVI formally declared 12th century Benedictine nun Hildegard of Bingen a canonized saint, with the canonization ceremony scheduled for October. He regards her as one of the great thinker who has helped shape the thought of the Catholic Church. Today there are many websites and Hildegard groups that celebrate and honor Hildegard's teachings, philosophy, art, and music. Author Matthew Fox writes in Hildegard of Bingen about this amazing woman and what we can learn from her. In an era when women were marginalized, Hildegard was an outspoken, controversial figure. Yet so visionary was her insight that she was sought out by kings, popes, abbots, and bishops for advice. A sixteenth century follower of Martin Luther called her “the first Protestant” because of her appeals to reform the church. As a writer, composer, philosopher, Christian mystic, Benedictine abbess, healer, artist, feminist, and student of science, Hildegard was a pioneer in many fields in her day. For many centuries after her death Hildegard was ignored or even ridiculed but today is finally being recognized for her immense contribution to so many areas, including our understanding of our spiritual relationship to the earth—a contribution that touches on key issues faced by our planet in the 21st century, particularly with regard to the environment and ecology.

Bush's evangelical imperialism. Namaste Sharon, said India's Prime Minister, but what does the rest of the country say?Why did Sharon come to India?What is the ideological affinity between Sharonism and Hindutva?

Jhumpa Lahiri's Interpreter of Maladies established this young writer as one the most brilliant of her generation. Her stories are one of the very few debut works -- and only a handful of collections -- to have won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction. Among the many other awards and honors it received were the New Yorker Debut of the Year award, the PEN/Hemingway Award, and the highest critical praise for its grace, acuity, and compassion in detailing lives transported from India to America. In The Namesake, Lahiri enriches the themes that made her collection an international bestseller: the immigrant experience, the clash of cultures, the conflicts of assimilation, and, most poignantly, the tangled ties between generations. Here again Lahiri displays her deft touch for the perfect detail -- the fleeting moment, the turn of phrase -- that opens whole worlds of emotion. The Namesake takes the Ganguli family from their tradition-bound life in Calcutta through their fraught transformation into Americans. On the heels of their arranged wedding, Ashoke and Ashima Ganguli settle together in Cambridge, Massachusetts. An engineer by training, Ashoke adapts far less warily than his wife, who resists all things American and pines for her family. When their son is born, the task of naming him betrays the vexed results of bringing old ways to the new world. Named for a Russian writer by his Indian parents in memory of a catastrophe years before, Gogol Ganguli knows only that he suffers the burden of his heritage as well as his odd, antic name. Lahiri brings great empathy to Gogol as he stumbles along the first-generation path, strewn with conflicting loyalties, comic detours, and wrenching love affairs. With penetrating insight, she reveals not only the defining power of the names and expectations bestowed upon us by our parents, but also the means by which we slowly, sometimes painfully, come to define ourselves. The New York Times has praised Lahiri as "a writer of uncommon elegance and poise." The Namesake is a fine-tuned, intimate, and deeply felt novel of identity.
