Selfless Self Press Releases Additional Translations of Ramakant Maharaj's Essential Teachings
by BWW News Desk - Jul 22, 2016

Selfless Self Press, (SSP) has added Spanish, French, Dutch, Portuguese and other languages to its list of books on the teachings of Self-Realized Master, Shri Ramakant Maharaj. Demand continues both at home and abroad for the authorized and definitive book of teachings, 'Selfless Self: Talks with Shri Ramakant Maharaj.' Its popularity can perhaps be attributed to the fact that such high and rare knowledge, has not been heard with such clarity and power, since the days of the legendary Nisargadatta Maharaj - Shri Ramakant's very own Master since 1962. SSP is now happy to announce more publications - of what has been hailed as a 21st century spiritual classic by respected figures in the Advaita circles. These latest editions now available in French, Dutch and Spanish are entitled: 'Soi sans soi', 'Zelfloos Zelf' and 'El Ser sin ser', respectively. Portuguese, German, Polish and Japanese translations will follow in the near future. 'Be with You - Thoughtless Reality', the small pocket book of Shri Ramakant's spontaneous quotations, designed to awaken the reader, is also a favourite. 'Be with You' is now available in French, Spanish and Portuguese, namely: 'Soyez avec Vous', 'Estar Contigo' and 'Esteja Com Voce'. Staff at SSP talked about other projects for 'Be with You': 'We currently have Dutch, German, Italian, Polish and Hebrew translations ongoing. In addition to these, we have produced an audiobook of 'Be with You', narrated by Ann Shaw, the editor of these books - available from iTunes. The audiobook is an attractive medium especially for books on meditation, like this one. The words of the Guru can pierce the heart of the reader! Listening therefore, as well as reading, can increase concentration on this powerful, direct knowledge that flows from Guru Shri Ramakant. It is a very useful way of Awakening the meditator, by aiding penetration and absorption of these teachings.' People are gradually hearing of 'Selfless Self' by word of mouth. At the same time, both excellent feedback and reviews continue to boost its profile. This month, the prestigious Sri Ramanansramam's 'Mountain Path' quarterly journal published a very favourable review of the book. The editor, Christopher Quilkey, highlighted the uniqueness and transforming power of 'Selfless Self: 'This book may appear to be just another recitation of the familiar party line of Advaita but what differentiates it is the obvious sincerity and one pointed focus and power of the teaching. This book too is not for the casually inquisitive or faint hearted. One has to breathe this book not think it. There is more happening in the dialogues than words can say. After reading through this book I have come to the conclusion that to be in the presence of Ramakant Maharaj is to enter another dimension of understanding.' 'Selfless Self' was first published in April 2015. Since its launch, it has deeply impacted countless truth seekers. Many have expressed their gratitude for the Book that answers the ultimate question of 'Who am I?' and for finally bringing their journey of Self-discovery to completion. Some of them will be able to thank Shri Ramakant personally, during his visit to the USA in September of this year, where he will be holding Satsang, free of charge. All books from Selfless Self Press are available from Amazon. Further information from: admin@selfless-self.com (more...)

BWW Blog: Sam Weber - Making it Work: Student Productions and Tech
by Guest Blogger: Sam Weber - Jul 18, 2016

Well, it's been awhile - and to be quite honest, not a ton of progress has been made since I introduced my current project.  As I believe I mentioned, myself and a few other students at my college have for the last two years produced full-fledged productions of musicals in less than 24 hours.  Beginning this fall, we are trying to expand our "season", if you will, with another full student production, however this time rehearsed sparsely over the course of two weeks instead of all in one day (with an approx. total rehearsal time of ~40 hours).  Our hope is that this will give us a chance to produce larger scale shows, with more complex elements, and larger, more inclusive casts.

BWW Interview: MONSTAH BLACK, The Interview. Part II
by Juan Michael Porter II - Jul 14, 2016

Well, yeah. I guess I am self-made. Because - thinking in terms of what my goals have been all my life - I've had very specific ideas around what I've wanted to do since I was about three. I can remember back to the day, the time of day, what I was doing, when the light bulb went off and I said to myself, "That's what I want to do." I pretty much focused on that. I said it on that day and I've gotten to the point where I'm in the middle of it happening. It's hinting towards what I see, what my goals have been. But it's not out of reach. It could happen. It's just a matter of putting the time into that and making it happen. It has happened already and now it's about allowing it to happen again and maybe getting more exposure to let it expand. My earliest inspiration is pretty much what helped shape myself into what I am. I can pinpoint who those people are and at some point I allowed it to… I let those landmarks inspire, I held onto them, and continued to step forward as the man. But it pretty much started with the Sonny and Cher show. (more...)
