True solitude is a rare experience in today’s busy world. For many people it has negative connotations, but for the Carthusian monks it is a blessing. They have given up everything in order to share in the desert experience of Jesus and to continue the ancient traditions of the Desert Fathers, who searched for God in the realms of silence.When Silence Speaks uncovers the deep spiritual foundations on which this remarkable and mysterious order of hermits has built for more than nine centuries: solitude and silence, separation and simplicity, contemplation and prayer, asceticism andperseverance. It includes an anthology of the original spiritual literature of the Carthusian tradition, the testimonies of monks who still follow the Carthusian way today, and a selection of photographs that provide a rare window into their world away from the world.‘To understand what is almost incomprehensible,’ writes author Tim Peeters, ‘we will take a walk with Saint Bruno and the Carthusian monks. We will climb into the high mountains of the Chartreuse massif near Grenoble [in France] where the origins of the order are situated. We will watch over the walls of the monasteries and enter into the cells and the hearts of the monks. And we hope you will taste something of the ultimate goal of this solitary and silent life: God, who speaks when the Carthusian listens and keeps quiet.’The original Dutch version of this book received the award for Religious Book of the Year in Belgium. It has also been published in French and Italian.

Looking back, this book is a perfect blend of the memoirs of an innocent Kashmiri boy, a chemical-but-turned-out-to-be-mechanical engineer, a cadet, a shuffling army officer and surveyor. From snow-covered lands of Kashmir to the vast ice masses of Antarctica, from times spent in college to life at the Indian Military Academy, from a career spanning across ranks of the Indian Army to years spent in the Survey of India, the book encompasses within its pages learnings, teachings, experiences, contributions and rewards along life's journey. The book and the author take you on a gripping journey through the insurgency infested Naga Hills, the mysterious and ever so unknown continent of Antarctica, as well as on foreign tours of strategic importance to the United States, Pakistan, China and Russia. The author's firsthand views on the contentious and sensitive issue of Sir Creek, as part of the Indian delegation to Pakistan, sure sheds a realistic insight on this matter of both national and international importance. Is the book an added value? You bet! It is a perfect blend of 'how to', 'what to' and 'when to'. Be it conquering one's simple fears or the ever-so-difficult act of quitting smoking, be it chasing your dreams or the need to deliver your best, this book sure has valuable take backs for all.

From the internationally bestselling and Giller-shortlisted author of The Disappeared, an astounding, poetic novel about war and loss, suffering and courage, and the strength of women through it all. It’s been eleven years since Gota has seen Kosmos, yet she still finds herself fantasizing about their intimate year together in Paris. Now it’s 1999 and, working as a journalist, she hears about a film festival in Sarajevo, where she knows Kosmos will be with his theatre company. She takes the assignment to investigate the fallout of the Bosnian war—and to reconnect with the love of her life. But when they are reunited, she finds a man, and a country, altered beyond recognition. Kosmos introduces Gota to Edina, the woman he has always loved. While Gota treads the precarious terrain of her evolving connection to Kosmos, she and Edina forge an unexpected bond. A lawyer and a force to be reckoned with, Edina exposes the sexual violence that she and thousands of others survived in the war. Before long, Gota finds her life entwined with the community of women and travels with them to The Hague to confront their abusers. The events she covers—and the stories she hears—will change her life forever. Written in Kim Echlin’s masterfully luminescent prose, Speak, Silence weaves together the experiences of a resilient sisterhood and tells the story of the real-life trial that would come to shape history. In a heart-wrenching tale of suffering and loss and a beautiful illustration of power and love, Echlin explores what it means to speak out against the very people who would do anything to silence you.

Bhagwan Ramana Maharishi is the embodiment of silence...the depths of which can stun the mind and words into a silent abyss of peace, the inner spanda (vibration) and the sphurna (remembrance) of the self. From the nidus of this silence, there arose occasionally; few words from him that mutilated the illusions and hammered the mind to inquire into its source, dissolving its fake identity. This book is a collection of 108 such mutterings from the kosha ( sheath) of this silent sage. An immersing ....without a recovery from it is the apt way to absorb the inscribing. A milieu in which one gets thrown back at one self........again, again and yet again.

He Speaks in the Silence is about Diane Comer’s search for the kind of intimacy with God every woman longs for. It is a story of trying to be a good girl, of following the rules, of longing for a satisfaction that eludes us. Disappointed with all Diane had been told was supposed to fulfill her, she begged God in desperation to give her more. And He did. But first He took her through a trial so debilitating it almost destroyed what little faith she had. He let her go deaf. Using vivid parallels between her deafness and every woman’s struggle to hear God, this book shows women not only how Diane, as a deaf woman, hears in everyday life, but also how she can learn to listen to God in the midst of her own loud life, finding intimacy with God and the deep soul satisfaction she longs for.
