Explore the nature of our material world in a unique sourcebook, conceived by the Dalai Lama, collecting the scientific observations found in classical Buddhist treatises. Under the visionary supervision of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Science and Philosophy in the Indian Buddhist Classics brings together classical Buddhist explorations of the nature of our material world and the human mind and puts them into context for the modern reader. It is the Dalai Lama’s view that the explorations by the great masters of northern India in the first millennium CE still have much that is of interest today, whether we are Buddhist or not. Volume 1, The Physical World, explores of the nature of our material world—from the macroscopic to the microscopic. It begins with an overview of the many frameworks, such as the so-called five aggregates, that Buddhist thinkers have used to examine the nature and scope of reality. Topics include sources of knowledge, the scope of reason, the nature and constituents of the material world, theories of the atom, the nature of time, the formation of the universe, and the evolution of life, including a detailed explanation of the early Buddhist theories on fetal development. The volume even contains a brief presentation on early theories about the structure and function of the brain and the role of microorganisms inside the human body. The book weaves together passages from the works of great Buddhist thinkers like Asanga, Vasubandhu, Nagarjuna, Dignaga, and Dharmakirti. Each of the major topics is introduced by Thupten Jinpa, the Dalai Lama’s principal English-language translator and founder of the Institute of Tibetan Classics.

Matt Dorning likes his life just the way it is. Escorting provides him with enough money to live in his favorite city, New York, and he's been doing it long enough that he knows the rules: don't give it away when there's always someone who'll pay for it; always leave them wanting more; and never, never lose your heart to a client. Lucas Sawyer is about to challenge all Matt's rules. He's a beautiful man who shouldn't need to pay for sex, and yet Matt knows he's the latest hooker in a long line. Lucas lives a life Matt can only dream of, but it doesn't appear to make him happy: there's something going on beneath that poised, self-assured exterior. And Matt also knows that his time with Lucas won't last forever - escorts have a certain shelf life where he's concerned. So what happens when the man who doesn't 'do' relationships, starts to question his life? Lucas is about to embark on a journey of self discovery...and Matt's life is about to get messy... Although this is part of the Material World series, it is a stand alone novella. Expect sex, silk, and sensuality.
