The Book of Tea: Large Printby Kakuzo OkakuraThe Book of Tea was written by Okakura Kakuzo in the early 20th century. It was first published in 1906, and has since been republished many times.In the book, Kakuzo introduces the term Teaism and how Tea has affected nearly every aspect of Japanese culture, thought, and life. The book is accessibile to Western audiences because Kakuzo was taught at a young age to speak English; and spoke it all his life, becoming proficient at communicating his thoughts to the Western Mind. In his book, he discusses such topics as Zen and Taoism, but also the secular aspects of Tea and Japanese life. The book emphasises how Teaism taught the Japanese many things; most importantly, simplicity. Kakuzo argues that this tea-induced simplicity affected art and architecture, and he was a long-time student of the visual arts. He ends the book with a chapter on Tea Masters, and spends some time talking about Sen no Rikyu and his contribution to the Japanese Tea Ceremony.According to Tomonobu Imamichi, Heidegger's concept of Dasein in Sein und Zeit was inspired - although Heidegger remains silent on this - by Okakura Kakuzo's concept of das-in-dem-Welt-sein (to be in the being of the world) expressed in The Book of Tea to describe Zhuangzi's philosophy, which Imamichi's teacher had offerred to Heidegger in 1919, after having followed lessons with him the year before.

Natalia arbeitet in einem Waisenhaus irgendwo in Südosteuropa, als sie vom rätselhaften Tod ihres geliebten Großvaters erfährt. Nach Erklärungen suchend, erinnert sich die junge Ärztin an jene Geschichten aus seinem Leben, die sich um zwei seltsame, fatale Gestalten drehen – die Tigerfrau, eine schöne Taubstumme in seinem Heimatdorf, die einen geflüchteten Tiger pflegte; und einen charmanten, obskuren Mann, der nicht sterben kann. Während Natalia auf den Spuren des Großvaters durch idyllische und kriegsverwüstete Landschaften reist, werden ihr diese Figuren immer gegenwärtiger. Bald entspinnt sich ein ganzer Kosmos an Mythen und Gestalten, und Natalia begreift, welche Wahrheit über die Lebensrätsel ihrer Familie und ihre versehrte Heimat in ihnen steckt ... Sprachgewaltig, mit unvergesslichen Figuren und einer erzählerischen Virtuosität, die an Gabriel García Márquez erinnert, entwirft Téa Obreht das schmerzlich-schöne Bild einer zwischen gestern und heute gefangenen, mythengläubigen Welt. «Time» schrieb über «Die Tigerfrau»: «Liebe, Legende und Tod werden hier so wundervoll geschildert, dass jeder andere Roman in diesem Jahr Gefahr läuft, an der unheimlichen Schönheit dieses Buches gemessen zu werden. Seit Zadie Smith debütierte kein junger Autor mit solcher Kraft und Eleganz.»

Die weltweit bekannte Parabel über das Geheimnis des Glücks vom Bestsellerautor Robin Sharma – über die berührende Geschichte des Mönchs, der seinen Ferrari verkaufte. Mitten in einem dicht besetzten Gerichtssaal brach er zusammen. Er war einer der hervorragendsten Anwälte des Landes. Für die sündhaft teuren italienischen Anzüge, die seinen massigen Körper zierten, war er genauso bekannt wie für seine bemerkenswerte Reihe von Siegen vor Gericht. Und jetzt dieser Zusammenbruch. Der große Julian Mantle war jäh zu einem hilflosen Wesen zusammengesackt, zitterte, bebte, wand sich wie ein kleines Kind am Boden. Nach der schweren Herz-Attacke trennt sich der Star-Anwalt Julian Mantle von seinem hart erarbeiteten Luxus-Leben. Statt nach einer Kur wieder in sein altes Leben zurückzukehren, macht er sich auf die Reise in den Himalaya, um sich in einem Kloster den Grundfragen des Lebens zu stellen. Eine Gruppe von Mönchen lehrt ihn dort das Geheimnis des Glücks: durch Selbstdisziplin den Geist zu kultivieren, seine Träume in die Tat umzusetzen und jeden Tag die Fülle des Lebens auszukosten. Auf so einfache Art und Weise macht Robin Sharma in seinem spirituellen Roman klar, was im Leben wirklich zählt.
