Science is denounced for having brought present chaos and conflict in the world. Spiritual renaissance vis-à-vis contemporary scientific self-annihilation of civilization can avert the burgeoning doom. This book deals with mutation of human psyche with consciousness of man to preserve our very existence; to bring about a new culture and resolve the crisis in human psyche. Consists of three parts-Part I highlights challenge of thought, consciousness, education, violence, relationship and society. The United Nations project launched on 23 September 2003 has been incorporated in Part II. Part III explores subject-object dualism, crisis of perception, science and spirituality. In principle, the total matter is a single dynamic flow of dimensional transformation of the whole psyche including latest discoveries of science.

This book by an anthropologist looks at recent developments in the sciences and the humanities taking into account many disciplines. The integral approach suggests radical departures by presenting alternate paradigms to the consumeristic paradigm which governs humankind today. This reconceptualizing through a rethinking is the only way a shift in lifestyles can be brought about if we wish to avoid the disasters which are upon us in terms of the oftstated ecological, socio-economic, psychological and spiritual crises. The implications of science in the new age are crucial for the growth and relevance of those disciplines which study the human phenomenon. By and large, in these academic disciplines general concepts have neglected the role of Consciousness which is a must in any integral approach. Each chapter is governed by this overall context, as it is exemplified in the different topics dealt with from the viewpoint of many disciplines. The argument is not a linear sequential one, and in this sense each chapter is self-contained especially because the basic premise is that it is both the observer and the observed which have to be thoroughly understood at the particular and the universal levels. Science itself is moving into metaphysics, converging well into mystical insights and ancient speculative thought. The various themes of the book are: Civilization Studies and Knowledge: A Holistic Approach; Rock Art: A Creative Act; Man in Nature: An Integral Universe; A Question of Consciousness; Science and Consciousness; Violence and Non-Violence: A Binary System; and Integral Listening as Communication.

The Section I of the book entitled The Immanent Disaster : A Vision of Climate Change consists of Ch. I to IX. It discusses that every event/organism is governed by immutable laws of Life, by Cosmic Consciousness, by Life Field. The truth of man or the truth of nature is the Oneness or Wholeness of Life. Only the Intelligence of Love and Compassion can resolve the problems of life. The Section II of the book is entitled Creativity and Innovation and consist of Ch. X to XXI. If the researcher is interested in profit making [materialism], the intuition falls to innovation [symbolic-dualistic frame of reference]. The research will have to repeat the whole process of quantum leap form innovation to intuition. Hideki Yukawa, Nobel prize in physics, wrote, The need for a reform is not without, but within . Mutation is not in future, it can only be now. Prof. R.K. Pachauri, in November 2007 predicted that only a few years are left to avert the worst. The Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh releases an Action Plan on Climate Change on June 30, 2008.We need Understanding, Direct Perception, Freedom, Science of the Wholeness of Life and art of living in Universal Consciousness. If India is to avoid the crisis of turning into disaster, it has to understand Consciousness here and now and to live that understanding.

The Odyssey is considered to be the most beautiful literary work of the Western civilization, and Homer the first and the greatest poet ever. The book Demystifying the Odyssey is interpreting Homer's epic in a unique and completely new way. For the first time in literature, this book explains the events and phenomena that Odysseus saw and experienced, and which were considered so far as a result of the Poet's rich imagination. So, this book reveals how Odysseus went to Hades kingdom of the dead souls; what are in reality Scylla and Charybdis; who were the sirens; how the Island of Aeolus', the ruler of the winds, actually floated; how Circa turned Odysseus's sailors into pigs and other. Besides that, this book also reveals the fallacy two and a half millennia long, dating back from the first historians Herodotus and Thucydides, according to which Odysseus was wandering the Mediterranean sea. It further provides numerous proofs that Homer's hero was actually wandering the Adriatic. For all those readers who are familiar with the ancient Greek literature this book will be great news and quite a surprise. On the other hand, for those who have not been quite aware of the old Greek world it will provide great knowledge on the first European civilization. In any case, this will surely be an interesting reading for all of them.
