    “This was my first book in English, written while I was a novice at a temple in Bangkok in 1981. The monastic experiences taught me to have patience while struggling to survive at a time of crisis in life.”

    Though this book was written over three decades ago, the content remains interesting for those wishing to know about the Buddhist way of life, especially of monks and novices at that time.

    Even now some events remain relevant, so they will remain till the world ends. That is to say, the happiness and suffering of all beings on earth will exist in people’s minds forever. We will be free of this bondage only when we attain enlightenment (nibbana).

    I am not an expert on Buddhism, but I’d like to share my old stories with my English-speaking friends who may like to know about the country that was formerly known as Siam.

  • The Cult of the Thirty-Seven Spirits (Nats) in Burma

    Merging Animism and Buddhism

    The Cult of the Thirty-Seven Spirits (Nats) in Burma―Merging Animism and Buddhism is a study about the religious belief of the Burmese people that includes traditional (or indigenous) animistic worship of spirits and deities of Hindu-Buddhist origin to a specific concept within Theravada Buddhism.

    Nat worship has a much longer history in Burma (modern Myanmar) than Buddhism, and worshipers believe that areas, places, objects and people are associated with and governed by particular nats.

    When King Anawrahta of Bagan shaped the first Burmese nation by defeating the dominance of the Mon people in the 11th century, he also established a new religious belief system by combining Animism and Buddhism, which is still practiced by the Burmese people today.

    $4.99$11.99

    God’s Love Letters is written through the eyes of an intercessor. Throughout the circumstances of life the intercessor is moved by the questions, the heartaches, the pains and the struggles of others. The intercessor desires to see men, women, boys and girls walk in freedom, peace of mind and the love that God desires for His own creation.
    The work of Jesus Christ through His death and Resurrection, offering salvation, forgiveness, healing, deliverance and restoration to the Father, is also the model for the intercessor.
    Those that are called to this ministry must likewise lay down their lives and must stand between God and His children to bring restoration.
    The book is a series of prayers, as God speaks to His own through stories of hope. The book also reveals the heart of a loving Father who cares about His children and has given His Holy Spirit to guide the intercessor to the place of prayer.

  • How to Deal with Anger, Stress, Depression, Grief & Sadness from Islamic Perspective

    $2.99 Vandestra, Muhammad
    Add to cart
    $2.99

    The average human being in the developed world battles sadness, anger, stress, depression and worry on a daily basis.  While the majority of the world’s population confront extreme poverty, famine, conflict and despair those of us privileged to lead relatively easy lives must tackle fear, stress, and anxiety. Why are those of us blessed with riches beyond compare immersed in loneliness and desperation?  We are living in a time of confusion, we try as we might, yet gathering material possessions can do nothing to mend broken hearts, and shattered souls.

    Now, more than at any other time in human kind’s history, stress, anxiety, and psychological problems are taking a tremendous toll on the human condition.  Religious beliefs should afford a sense of comfort however; it seems that 21st century man has lost the ability to connect to God.  Pondering the meaning of life no longer overcomes a feeling of abandonment.  This desire to acquire material possessions, which in some way validates our reason for being, has become the balm that soothes our troubled souls.  Why is this so?

    We have the best of everything readily available, yet the reality is we have nothing.  Nothing that comforts the soul.  Beautiful furnishings do not hold our hand in the darkest night.  The latest entertainment centre does not wipe our tears or soothe our furrowed brow.  Those of us living with pain and grief, or afflicted with hardship feel abandoned.  We feel rudderless on an open sea.  Huge waves threaten to engulf us at any given moment.  Our desires and debts stand at the apex and loom over us, like great avenging angels, and we search for comfort in addictions and self-destructive behaviour.

    How do we step away from the precipice?  In Islam, the answer is remarkably simple.  We turn back to our Creator.  God knows what is best for His creation.  He has complete knowledge of the human psyche.  He knows of the pain, the despair, and the sadness.  God is whom we are reaching for in the darkness.  When we put God back on our agenda, the pain will subside.

    “Verily, in the remembrance of God do hearts find rest.” (Quran 13:28)

    Islam is not a religion filled with empty rituals and hypercritical rules and regulations, although it can seem so if we forget just what our real purpose in life is.  We were created to worship God, nothing more and nothing less.  However, God, in His infinite mercy and wisdom did not abandon us to this world filled with trials and tribulations.  He armed us with weapons.  These weapons are more powerful than the arsenals of the great 21st century armies.  God gave us the Quran, and the authentic traditions of His Prophet Muhammad.

  • Tales of Prophet Jesus (Pbuh) & Prophet Muhammad SAW

    $2.99 Vandestra, Muhammad

    $2.99

    The Story of Prophet Jesus (Pbuh) and Prophet Muhammad SAW In Islam Faith Based from The Noble Quran & Al-Hadist.

    In many verses of the Glorious Qur’an Allah SWT (God) the Exalted denied the claim of the Christians that He has a son. A delegation from Nagran came to the Prophet Muhammad SAW. They began to talk about their claim about the Trinity, which is that Allah is three in one, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, with some disagreement among their sects. That is why Allah affirmed in many verses of the Qur’an that Prophet Jesus or Prophet Isa (Pbuh)is a slave of Allah SWT (God), whom He molded in the womb of his mother like any other of His creatures, and that He created him without a father, as He created Prophet Adam (Pbuh) without a father or a mother.

  • Islam Folklore Prophet Jesus (Isa) Son of Mary & The Bird from Clay

    $1.99 Vandestra, Muhammad
    Add to cart
    $1.99

    In the beginning I was clay then I became a bird by Allah’s leave. From motionless clay to a soaring bird. I was something that was not able to move by itself and then I could fly in the sky. That is me.

    I do not know how to introduce myself to history.

    Allah (Exalted and Glorified be He) introduced me in the last of His Books saying, “(Remember) when Allah will say (on the Day of Resurrection), ‘O ‘Isa (Jesus), son of Mary am (Mary)! Remember My Favor to you and to your mother when I supported you with Ruh-ul-Qudus [Jibril (Gabriel)) so that you spoke to the people in the cradle and in maturity; and when I taught you writing, Al-Hikmah (the power of understanding), the Tawrat (Torah) and the Injil (Gospel); and when you made out of the clay, as it were, the figure of a bird, by My Permission, and you breathed into it, and it became a bird by My Permission.’”

    That is me.

    A handful of clay…

    I was the princess of clay, even though I was made of clay.

    Then I fell in love. That was before ‘Isa the son of Maryam touched me. When I fell in love I began to transform.

    How can a creature explain the scent of the earth that was originally the sky?

    I was calm, still and content with my state of being a lump of clay. I do not dream, for clay does not have the ability to do this. Even though I could not dream, I was content. I had a long history before I became earthly clay. At first, I was a part of the sun. Then billions of years passed by and I had not yet fallen in love, so the burning embers were put out and I was transformed into rock on a planet they call the earth in a place they call Palestine.

    I am a part of the mud of Palestine and a part of its land. Look how much I had suffered. Thousands of years passed by without falling in love.

    I used to drink water, become satisfied and help scented flowers to grow even without enjoying love. It is the instinct of clay to be watered so we can grow flowers. One seed is enough for me to make what amazes both mind and heart. Through all this, I remained as I was, just simple earthly clay.

    I did not see beyond the space taken by my atoms. Clay does not see with eyes for it does not have eyes. Sometimes I see things through a worm or a flower. I do not know what goes on around me; I do not know what happens on top of me. But, sometimes I feel happy and at other times I become sad.

  • The Etiquette of Eating & Personal Hygiene from Islamic Perspective

    $1.99 Vandestra, Muhammad
    Add to cart
    $1.99

    The religion of Islam is a holistic way of life.  It is not separated into physical, emotional and spiritual areas; rather it teaches that all aspects of life combine to fulfil one purpose.  What is that purpose and is it possible to understand the meaning of life? Yes it is!  Islam makes it very clear that the purpose of life is to worship our Creator, the One True God.  What gives meaning to our existence is understanding that all our actions, no matter how grand or how trivial, can be turned easily into worship.  All actions performed in the daily course of life can be raised to the status of worship simply by remembering to praise God and seek His pleasure.

    Islam makes remembrance easy by giving us guidelines.  It teaches us in a gentle and moderate way that life is worship, and worship is the meaning of life.  To this end, even eating has an etiquette that raises its status from the mundane to worship.  Food plays a significant role in our everyday lives.  We spend a lot of time, effort and money in shopping, cooking and eating so it makes sense to turn these worldly acts into worship worthy of reward.  The sayings of Prophet Muhammad are filled with guidelines and recommendations that make eating a rewardable action.

    Cleanliness is an important part of Islam. Not only should a Muslim purify himself before turning to God in prayer but they must pay attention to the cleanliness of their bodies and their surroundings at all times.  Prophet Muhammad, may the mercy and blessings of God be upon him, reminded us that our body has certain rights and one of those rights is that it should be maintained with cleanliness.

  • Buddhism from Islamic Perspective

    $1.99 Vandestra, Muhammad
    Add to cart
    $1.99

    Buddhism is the religion of more than 500 million people around the globe. The majority of those people live in Asia but there are substantial Buddhist communities in other continents. There are two main Buddhist traditions, Theravada (The School of the Elders) and Mahayana (The Great Vehicle). Buddhism is not strictly a religion and is often described a philosophy of life.

    According to Theravada scripture the Buddha (Siddartha Gautama) was born in the 5th century BCE. He was the son of King Śuddhodana, the ruler of a small kingdom in what is modern day Nepal. Shortly after his birth, eight Brahmins were called upon to predict the child’s future. Seven Brahmins prophesised that the young prince would either be a great ruler, or renounce worldly pleasures and live the life of a holy man.

    One however, was sure the child would be a holy man. The King had great worldly ambitions for his son therefore kept the Prince within the confines of the royal palace. At age 29 the prince escaped confinement and had several encounters with the outside world. These encounters became known in scripture as the four sights.

  • What is Islam Faith?

    $0.00 Vandestra, Muhammad
    $0.00

    Among the blessings and favors that God has bestowed upon humanity is that He endowed them with an innate ability to recognize and acknowledge His existence.  He placed this awareness deep in their hearts as a natural disposition that has not changed since human beings were first created.  Furthermore, He reinforced this natural disposition with the signs that he placed in creation that testify to His existence.  However, since it is not possible for human beings to have a detailed knowledge of God except through revelation from Himself, God sent His Messengers to teach the people about their Creator Who they must worship.  These Messengers also brought with them the details of how to worship God, because such details cannot be known except by way of revelation.  These two fundamentals were the most important things that the Messengers of all the divine revelations brought with them from God.

    The ultimate goal of every Divine Message has always been the same: to guide the people to God, to make them aware of Him, and to have them worship Him alone.  Each Divine Message came to strengthen this meaning, and the following words were repeated on the tongues of all the Messengers: “Worship God, you have no god other than Him.” This message was conveyed to humanity by prophets and messengers which God sent to every nation.  All of these messengers came with this same message, the message of Islam.

  • The Tale of Prophet Nuh (Noah) In Islam

    $1.49

    Prophet Nuh ibn Lamech ibn Methuselah known as Prophet Noah in the Old Testament, is recognized in Islam as a prophet and apostle of Allah SWT (God). He is a highly important figure in Islamic tradition, as he is counted amongst the earliest prophets sent by God to mankind. According to Islam, Noah’s mission was to save a wicked world, plunged in depravity and sin. God charged Prophet Noah (Nuh) with the duty of preaching to his people to make them abandon idolatry and to worship only the One Creator and to live good and pure lives.

    Although he preached the Message of God with immense zeal, his people refused to mend their ways, leading to his building of the Ark and the famous event of the Deluge, the Great Flood in which all the evil people of his time perished. Noah’s preaching and prophet-hood spanned 950 years according to Quran.

    Prophet Noah’s mission had a double character: he had to warn his people, asking them to call for repentance and, at the same time, he had to preach about God’s mercy and forgiveness, promising them the glad tidings God would provide if they led righteous lives. References to Noah are scattered throughout the Qur’an, and there is even an entire sura carrying his name, Noah.

    {If you help him (Muhammad) not (it does not matter), for Allah did indeed help him when the disbelievers drove him out, the second of two, when they (Muhammad and Abu Bakr) were in the cave, and he (peace be upon him) said to his companion Abu Bakr (May Allah be pleased with him), ‘Be not sad (or afraid), surely Allah is with us.’ Then Allah sent down His Sakinah (calmness, tranquility, peace, etc.) upon him, and strengthened him with forces (angels) which you saw not, and made the word of those who disbelieved the lowermost, while it was the Word of Allah that became the uppermost, and Allah is All-Mighty, All- Wise.} (Holy Quran 9.40)

    I am a spider who is higher in rank than other spiders. With all humility, if all the spiders in this world were put in one hand and I was put in the other I would outweigh them in superiority. I am not one to make false claims and show-off, I am simply stating facts. I do not think that I need to introduce myself to the reader, for I am sure you understand that I am the spider of the cave that the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) hid in. I am the one, who was responsible for the Prophet’s deliverance. I am the one, who Allah (God) sent to protect him.

    My web is very flimsy and light and the slightest breeze can blow it away. However, despite the weakness of my web, I managed to ward off the iron swords of the atheists that went out in pursuit of the Prophet, and moreover, I was able to defeat them! The outcome of the conflict between the spiders’ weak silk and the iron of the swords was the defeat of iron. My house is considered a parable of weakness, “Verily, the frailest (weakest) of houses is the spider’s house.” I sat in my house protecting the noble house of Islam and guarding the Prophet of Allah, Muhammad ibn ‘ Abdullah (peace be upon him).That was not all that happened to me. Something even more wonderful happened; I saw the Prophet. I know that after the Prophet’s death, millions will visit his grave to cry and pray.

  • Scientology from Islamic Perspective

    Add to cart
    $0.99

    Scientology has been called the world’s most significant new religion, and Scientologists themselves claim to draw on 50,000 years of wisdom. However apostates from Scientology claim it is a vicious, dangerous cult masquerading as a religion. No matter which description we choose, the fact remains that Scientology is a controversial, mysterious religious movement, with more than 10 million members in around 160 countries across the globe. In this series of articles, we hope to delve into this puzzling movement, and find the answer to several intriguing questions. Is Scientology a religion or an evil cult? What exactly does a scientologist believe, and how do these beliefs compare to the religion of Islam?

    The official scientology web site states that “Scientology is a religion that offers a precise path leading to a complete and certain understanding of one’s true spiritual nature and one’s relationship to self, family, groups, mankind, all life forms, the material universe, the spiritual universe and the Supreme Being”. From this we can easily deduce that scientology does acknowledge God, or what they refer to as the Supreme Being.

    “Scientology comprises a body of knowledge which extends from certain fundamental truths. Prime among these are, that man is an immortal spiritual being, his experience extends well beyond a single lifetime and his capabilities are unlimited, even if not presently realised.” In this statement we can see that scientologists believe in some form of reincarnation perhaps not dissimilar to the Eastern religions such as Hinduism or Buddhism.

    Add to cart
    $1.99

    Prophet Muhammad SAW from Mecca, unified Arabia into a single religious polity under Islam faith. Believed by Muslims to be a prophet and messenger of Allah SWT (God), Muhammad is almost universally considered by Muslims as the last prophet sent by God to mankind. While non-Muslims generally regard Muhammad as the founder of Islam, Muslims consider him to have restored the unaltered original monotheistic faith of Prophet Abraham, Prophet Moses, Prophet Jesus and other prophets.

    Born approximately in 570 CE in the Arabian city of Mecca, Prophet Muhammad SAW was orphaned at an early age; he was raised under the care of his paternal uncle Abu Talib. After his childhood Muhammad primarily worked as a merchant. Occasionally he would retreat to a cave in the mountains for several nights of seclusion and prayer; later, at age 40, he reported at this spot,that he was visited by Angel Gabriel and received his first revelation from Allah SWT (God). Three years after this event Prophet Muhammad SAW started preaching these revelations publicly, proclaiming that “God is One”.

    Prophet Muhammad SAW, may the mercy and blessings of God be upon him, is the man beloved by more than 1.5 billion Muslims. He is the man who taught us patience in the face of adversity, and taught us to live in this world but seek eternal life in the hereafter. It was to Prophet Muhammad SAW that God revealed the Quran. Along with this Book of guidance God sent Prophet Muhammad SAW, whose behavior and high moral standards are an example to us all. Prophet Muhammad’s life was the Quran. He understood it, he loved it and he lived his life based on its standards. He taught us to recite the Holy Quran, to live by its principles and to love it. When Muslims declare their faith in One God, they also declare their belief that Muhammad is the slave and final messenger of God.

    Prophet Muhammad SAW taught us to love God and to obey Him. He taught us to be kind to each other, to respect our elders, and care for our children. He taught us that it was better to give than to receive and that each human life is worthy of respect and dignity. He taught us to love for our brothers and sisters what we love for ourselves. Prophet Muhammad SAW taught us that families and communities are essential, and he pointed out that individual rights although important are not more important than a stable, moral society. Prophet Muhammad SAW taught us that men and women are equal in the sight of God and that no one person is better then another except in respect to his or her piety and devotion to God.

    The Truth about Revelation

    This book explores the book of Revelation to determine what its primary message is. There are so many views about the book that it can be confusing. However, most Revelation presenters do not pay close attention to what the book itself is doing and resort to imposing external paradigms on Revelation. This study attempts to provide some balance by examining the book from within.
