Through his research over the years, Dr Supalla, who is deaf, has identified the name sign system which has a pattern to forming and giving name signs within the deaf communities. The need for a formal name sign book has risen dramatically with the increasing use of inappropriate name signs. There is a comprehensive guide and a list of over 500 name signs to help people to select appropriate name signs according to the American Sign Language (ASL) rules of formation and use. The book is written to be both informative and entertaining, and Dr Supalla compels all who are interested to become more aware of deaf people's intriguing signed language and culture, both dating back to the early years of deaf education.

An in-depth study of the sacred meanings behind ancient and enduring symbols • Explains the multiple forms and uses of symbols from ancient times to the present day, reflecting their roots in folk magic and the Western Mystery tradition • Examines more than 40 glyphs, such as the cross, fleur de lis, and pentagram, as well as several families of symbols, such as craftsmen’s marks and runes • Includes more than 300 unique woodcuts, drawings, calligraphy, and photographs--many never before reproduced From ancient rock and cave art to the contemporary brand logos of politics and business, human beings have always created symbols to denote specific ideas, groups, or important objects as well as to convey deeper information than can be communicated in words. Many glyphs have retained their meanings over millennia whereas some have modern meanings vastly different from the original connotation. In this study of symbols, Nigel Pennick explores glyphs as agents of higher consciousness and ports of access to the collective unconscious, acknowledging the continuity of tradition, both deliberate and not, as well as how interpretations of some symbols, such as the swastika, have changed dramatically. With more than 300 unique woodcuts, drawings, calligraphy, and photographs--many never before reproduced--Pennick examines ancient and enduring glyphs in detail, such as the circle, cross, eye, pentagram, fleur de lis, tree of life, and horseshoe, as well as several families of symbols, such as craftsmen’s marks, runes, symbolic beasts, human heads and skulls, and the sigils of Mammon. The author explains the multiple forms and uses of each from ancient times to the present day, reflecting their roots in the Western Mystery tradition. He explores the symbols of high magic such as the glyph of John Dee’s monad, those of folk magic such as the traditional cock on the weather vane, and the creation of modern glyphs such as the peace sign and the anarchy symbol. Contrasting the hi-jacked use of power symbols in modern advertising with the vital role of symbols in traditional arts and crafts, Pennick reveals how symbols link the cosmic with the terrestrial and allow us to infuse the mundane with the numinous.

It is not long before he realizes he has just unwittingly overheard the details of an evil plot to kill the Queen. Kaul has seen and heard too much. Suddenly, his life is in danger. Kaul has no choice but to escape quickly, not knowing where he is headed. Feeling the pull of the huge, unfriendly Carpan Forest, he enters a foreign world he has always feared. As unknown pursuers with large dogs and an uncanny knowledge of the forest gain with every step, Kaul attempts to shake his seekers and forge on before all is lostincluding, perhaps, his own life. But then Kaul meets his appointed guide, Endiraan old woman who holds her gnarled wooden cane more like a weapon than a walking stick.

In this fast-paced epic, a boy transforms into a man and realizes an inner-strength he never knew he possessed.

This is an investigation into the science of spirituality and the phenomenon at its foundation, sound vibrations. It details hows the phenomenon of acoustic figures known as Chladni patterns are at the root of what some call Sacred Geometry and how this phenomenon relates directly to the idea of chakras in the body. The book also shows how not only Hindu and Buddhist traditions are based upon this phenomenon, but Jewish, Christian, and Moslem, as well. The culmination of its assertion is that key religious figures whose births are claimed to be special or from a virgin, were actually a product of ancient artificial insemination rituals that were mystically based upon this phenomenon.

Excerpt from The Sign Language, a Manual of Signs: Being a Descriptive Vocabulary of Signs Used, by the Deaf in the United States and Canada The following manual had its inception while the author was teaching signs to a class of hearing teachers. After the signs had been shown, a written description was furnished as a guide for reference. The success of the plan made it evident that such a vocabulary of signs would be a help to those who were anxious to learn the sign language and to others who felt the occasional need of reference to some standard to refresh their memory or add to the signs already known. The interest shown in acquiring the language of the deaf, by both oral and manual teachers, was convincing proof that there are still a great many teachers who realize (whether they use signs or not in teaching) that a knowledge of this means of communicating with the deaf helps them understand their pupils and brings them closer to the hearts of their little charges, besides giving them a better knowledge of the deaf outside of the school room. The work is not presented with the idea that persons unfamiliar with the deaf or their language can take it up and therefrom master the art of communicating in pantomime and understand its peculiarities. But it is believed that those who have had some experience with the deaf and have opportunities to see the signs made, will find it easy to follow the instructions given.

The important classic on Muhortha, the electional astrology. The book gives a comprehensive introduction to the calculation of muhoortha for various electional muhurthas. A copy of the ephemeris and the kalaprakasika is the only thing an astrologer would need to give the best muhoorthas for every known function and astrological ritual. The author reveals that the value and practice of the science of Astrology were well understood in India by the ancient Aryans at a period of hoary antiquity. The question of the time at which the science arose is, probably, one in regard to which it is extremely difficult to arrive at a confident conclusion. It is, however, a well-known fact that in the earliest literature of the ancient Hindus, Astrology holds a prominent place. It was the first sketch of science of the ancient Brahmanas to whom a knowledge of astronomical positions was indispensable in order to determine the proper time for commencing and ending their sacrifices, '‘principally, the so-called Sutras or sacrificial sessions' which could not be known without an accurate knowledge of the time of the Sun’s northern or southern progress. This book is a Hindu astrology work, and acts as a guide to deciding the appropriate time and occasion for the carrying out the various acts of everyday life. For example the commencement of education, marriage, harvest, foundation of a house, coronation, thread ceremony, journeys etc. The book contains few illustrations to delineate the subject properly. This book is a reprint of the 1917 edition. About the Author:-N.P. Subramania Iyer was an Indian-born author from South India. He was a noted translator and editor also.
