    My Life in the Yellow Robe

    $8.00 $6.00 Chadchaidee, Thanapol

    Sale! $8.00 $6.00

    “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.

    Thai Ghosts and Their Mysterious Power

    $6.00 $4.00 Chadchaidee, Thanapol

    Sale! $6.00 $4.00

    We cannot deny the significance of ghosts in Asian societies, because they play an essential part in our lives on an almost daily basis.
    Stepping into a plane heading to Thailand, you will be protected by benevolent ghosts immediately and automatically.

    They have the responsibility to protect you and help you without request. Most importantly, they will drive away the malevolent ghosts who may cause inconveniences to you. In Thailand, ghosts have their own specific duties to protect you.

    For example, during travelling you have to depend on the ghosts of vehicles, or Mae Ya Narng, the household ghosts, and ghosts of the forest. You need pay no extra charge because their help is complimentary. So you should not be afraid of them, but don’t insult them. The friendly ghosts always welcome you to the land of smiles and the land of a hundred ghosts.

    That is why I’ve dedicated this effort to telling you about ghosts. I must live with ghosts all my life; I cannot deny them or dissociate myself from them…

    Based on personal experiences, verbal and written evidence, and word of mouth. The first ever written by a Thai author who confronted ghosts at young age.

  • Origin of the Tai People, Volume 8―Early Tai Kingdoms of the BC Period

    $7.49

    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.
    The text is supported with plenty of images.

    Sale! $4.00 $2.00

    The book will throw light on the question of who the Thai political thinkers are and what criteria have been used to judge them. Dr. Thanapol has selected to study the process of political change since 1932. He has made the case studies of:

    1. the late Dr. Pridi Banomyong,
    2. the late M.R. Kukrit Pramoj,
    3. the late Prof. Dr. Chai-Anan Samudavanija and
    4. former Prime Minister Chaun Leekpai.

    These are the key figures in this period. They have made decisive impact on the Thai political system in order to make it more democratic. Dr. Thanapol has explained their role in changing the nature of the Thai political process. His work is unique and original and perhaps the first of its kind in the academic fields of Thailand.

    The Capital’s Top 60 Seaside Escapes
    Searching for the Perfect “Top” Beach
    Whatever your idea of the perfect Seaside Escape, the Philippines is well placed to provide the answer. 
     
    It is a 1,800 km / 1,200 m long archipelago of 7,107 tropical islands, every one offering the chance to get away – soft sand beaches with crystalline waters protected by brilliant coral reefs, sheltered by swaying palm trees.
     
    The big island of Luzon, the largest of the lot, has the widest variety of escapes. Luzon is well known for its magnificent inland attractions – from Manila, the country’s capital, to mountainous rice terraces and spectacular volcanoes – but it remains a tropical island with 5,000 km / 3,000 miles of coastline – indented with bays and coves – plus 100s of smaller, off-shore islands – all harbouring wonderful Top Beaches.
     
    Manila makes the logical starting point for visits to all of these Top Beaches because it is the first port of call for most visitors to the country and the starting point for a network of roads which reach every corner of the island.

  • 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.

  • The Ladakh Papers

    $4.99$14.99

    In the late 900s, Tibet and China were experiencing great changes as warring factions fought for political and religious ascendency. Despite being a backwater way station, the little Silk Route trading town of Dunhuang on the edge of the Taklamakan desert served as a repository for a multitude of Buddhist scriptures and commercial papers.
    In 1908, a treasure trove of these documents came to the attention of Sir Aurel Stein, the British archeologist, including a copy of the IRK BITIG, a divination book reportedly from the nomadic reaches south of Siberia. It had been forgotten for over 1,000 years and only came to public notice in 2017 through an exhibition at the Getty Museum in Los Angeles.
    One of the docents was the great grandson of a Japanese priest who had obtained a copy from Stein’s assistant, which included a secret letter describing a companion divination volume THE BOOK OF AFFLICITIONS, that, when used with the IRK BITIG, provided the locations of the hidden mythical kingdom of Shambhala as well as the location of the writings of the original Sufis.
    A group of Black Clad assassins who had chased the divination manuscript across centuries approached the docent, unaware of the companion piece, and the chase was on. The trail leads from Lone Pine, California to Los Angeles to distant monasteries in Ladakh, India and involves an elderly Zen priest and a Buddhist graduate student.

    Lessons Learned from China

    What happens when we look at two of the most important sciences of today, quantum physics and artificial intelligence, through Chinese eyes?

    We see that the Chinese developed an esthetic theory about space and time centuries before Albert Einstein developed Relativity Theory. We also understand why the Chinese world view inspired quantum mechanics pioneers Niels Bohr and Werner Heisenberg, psychoanalyst Carl Jung and the leading figures of the spiritually focused New Age movement.

    A fresh look at China’s ancient world view can even help us understand why binary code inventor Gottfried Leibniz argued that the Chinese invented the first binary code. The Chinese used different symbols – broken and unbroken lines instead of 0 and 1 – but Leibniz claimed the underlying principle was the same. Leibniz is the “spiritual” father of AI and the first to propose the “mechanization” of thought.

    AI and quantum mechanics are confronted with similar questions: Is nature continuous or discrete, wave or particle, analog or digital? How will AI address this dichotomy?  Can the Chinese world view shed light on this unresolved mystery?

    In the 21st century, China is likely to make its presence felt throughout the world. Understanding its ancient world view can help us anticipate this influence and it may show us the contours of the future of AI, arguably the last “hard” science humanity will ever need.

    “This book contains fascinating stories largely unknown, a history of Western scientific ideas, an insightful interpretation of ancient Chinese culture, and mind-expanding connections between East and West, art and technology, past and future. A unique play of creative ideas!”
    Bill Kelly, Lecturer in Intercultural Communication, UCLA (ret.)
