    Origin of the Tai People 8―Early Tai Kingdoms of the BC Period gives detailed information about the current academic knowledge of the various states that were established and governed by ethnic Tai people in the region of modern China, a long time before the first Han Chinese entered the area.
    Alone with the deciphering of the human DNA we are now in a position to know more precisely about our own biogenesis and about our migration routes within the territory of East Asia and mainland Southeast Asia.
    Today it is generally accepted that the populations inhabiting southern China and most parts of the eastern lands between the Yellow and Yangtze Rivers in the 2nd and 3rd millennia BC and before spoke languages that were not related to Chinese and the early principal states or kingdoms in this region were often conglomerations of distinct ethnic peoples under the leadership of a politically dominant ethnic group.
    This work is part of the discussion about the achievements of the Tai people in their ancient seats before the ethnic Han Chinese appeared in their various habitats in much later times of history and established their first Chinese Empire in 221 BC.

    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.

    Tai Folklore and Spirit Belief System

    Origin of the Tai People 7―Tai Folklore and Spirit Belief System describes the wide field of oral traditions and the complex ritual belief system of the ethnic Tai people.

    Spirit worship is as old as mankind itself and among the Tai people the phenomenon goes back to the ancient days when the first Tai-Kadai speakers originated in the area of modern southern China, from where they migrated to all parts of mainland Southeast Asia and as far as Assam province of India.

    Origin of the Tai People 6―Northern Tai-Speaking People of the Red River Delta and Their Habitat Today explains the involvement of Tai-Kadai people in the early history of modern Vietnam, especially their early presence in the Red River Delta.

    A number of modern scholars propose that the ancient Yue people, who inhabited at the end of the 1st millennium BC this region, included not only Yue proper, but the majority of this group were in fact Tai-Kadai-speaking people, who in turn were genetically linked with the aboriginal Austronesians of ancient Taiwan.

    Origin of the Tai People 5―Cradle of the Tai People and the Ethnic Setup Today deals with the early homeland (or ‘Urheimat’) of the Tai people and the contemporary ethnic makeup of the area. New evidence emerged across various academic disciplines that the people who spoke Tai-Kadai languages at the time in history when the first Han Chinese moved southwards across the Yangtze River never spread across the vast southern Chinese region but were concentrated in the more concluded (and mountainous) area of modern provinces of Guangxi, Guizhou, Guangdong and Hunan of southern China as well as the adjoining modern provinces Ha Giang, Cao Bang Lang Son and Quang Ninh of Northeast Vietnam, even extending into the Red River Valley as we now know.

    Origin of the Tai People 4―Ethnic Descent of the Tai-Kadai People describes the latest academic hypothesis on the ancient forefathers of the Tai people. Those ancient forebears, named pre-Austronesians, migrated from the area of the mid-Huang He Valley (or mid-Yellow River Valley) of modern northeastern China southward into the Yangtze River Delta of eastern China, and followed the coastal route to the Fujian coast of southeastern China.

  • 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

    $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.

  • Early Port Cities in the Malay Peninsula

    Early Port Cities in the Malay Peninsula gives most recent discovered information about the historical spread of Indian (or better Tamil) culture from southern India across the Bay of Bengal to the Malay Peninsula and from there to other parts of mainland Southeast Asia (Funan, Champa, Chenla and Dvaravati) and finally to maritime Southeast Asia.

    As this work will show, it was not an Indianization but a Tamilization, since the ethnic Tamil people of the southernmost region of India played the active part to transfer their religious and cultural traits from their homeland to Southeast Asia.

  • 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.

  • The Tale of Prophet Nuh (Noah) In Islam

    $1.49 Vandestra, Muhammad
    Add to cart
    $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.

    Μυθιστόρημα αναζήτησης

    Είναι άγρια μεσάνυχτα και ετοιμάζομαι να φύγω με τρένο για το Ασιούτ. Μου έχουν πει εκεί ότι ζει ένας γέροντας που έχει ξεχάσει πότε γεννήθηκε και είναι ο αϊράφουν Μάντουι = ο Μάντης.
    Δεν θυμάται καν, αν είναι Αιγύπτιος, ή κάποιας άλλης εθνικότητας. Μιλάει άπταιστα πολλές γλώσσες συν και της Αραβικής που ας πω ότι είναι η μητρική μου γλώσσα, αλλά αυτό είναι κάτι, που δεν θα το παραδεχτώ ποτέ. Εγώ είμαι Αιγύπτια και όχι αράβων γέννημα.
    Άλλοι είναι οι Άραβες και άλλοι είμαστε εμείς οι Αιγύπτιοι. Όσο και να φωνάζουν ότι είμαστε Άραβες, δεν είμαστε. Μας έκαναν με το ζόρι αραβόφωνες μόνο και μόνο για την θρησκεία που μας επιβλήθηκε και είναι το Ισλάμ.
    Το όνομα μου είναι Χολόντ και στα Ελληνικά μεταφράζετε η Αιώνια. Έχω πολύ λευκό δέρμα και πολύ διαφορετικά μάτια. Το αριστερό μου μάτι είναι καφετί και το δεξί μου γαλάζιο! Αυτό είναι πολύ αξιοπερίεργο με μένα, που ζω ανάμεσα σε ασμαράνις = μελαμψούς και από παιδί με φωνάζουν “Αλ ογιούν μουχταλιφίν = Τα δίχρωμα μάτια”. Στην χώρα που ζω, έχω ακούσει πολλούς θρύλους και από διάφορα χείλη έχω ακούσει για τον κρυμμένο πάπυρο, που τον έχει κάποιος και δεν τον ξέρει κανείς.
    Κατά καιρούς το έχει γράψει ο ίδιος, χαράζοντας το στους δρόμους επάνω σε πέτρες ότι… “άλλη είναι η αλήθεια και αλλιώς μας την έχουν μάθει”. Αν είναι ο γέροντας που θα πάω να βρω, αυτός που χάραζε τα μηνύματα, θα είναι για μένα η μεγάλη ανακάλυψη του αιώνα.
    Θαρρώ πως αυτό το χρωστάω σε μένα την ίδια και στην υπόσταση μου σαν Αιγύπτια που είμαι γέννημα θρέμμα και στο όνομα μου!!
