Dwapara Yuga Short References

It is recommended to shop around for rare items since one site may have them for $100+ and another for $10.

A researcher, following information in each of these books could easily produce a list of hundreds of titles. The following are just a short list, or beginning point. It's especially important to read outside of any one group's publications since each group emphasizes themes important to itself and downplays others.

In martial arts, the students of a master do not necessarily resemble the master, or indeed each other in techniques, yet share an essentially unity of effectiveness in combat. An army of clones, is symbolic of an effective teaching program but not necessarily mastery. In a modern army, the most effective soldiers are the most individualistic in special forces, and those who most resemble one another march in parades, do guard duties or are used for infantry assaults (Braveheart - "Use up the Irish. The dead cost nothing")  . God's grace whether in martial arts or spiritual awakening is not like a production line of identical cars, different only in their Sunday clothes.
