The Deeper Spirit


Information on African philosophies relating to Spirituality, Natural Healing and Religion; including ancient African Scriptures of Ethiopians, Israelites, Kemet (Egyptian), Yoruba, African mystics, Black Theology and Metaphysical writings.

"I and I be Coptic, Kemetic, African Hebrew Israelite, Akan, Muslim, Yoruba, Rasta, I and I be Spiritual, made in the image of The Most High"

"There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; One Supreme and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. With this knowledge ye shall be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And ye put on the new man, which after The Most High is created in Righteousness and True Holiness." 

Embodied in this knowledge is healthy living, being balanced, harmonious in thought, and spiritual ideals. This knowledge can contribute to constructive thinking, accomplishment, and the betterment of the world in which we live.  Spirituality then, is an attained mental state of Conscious awareness. It is an attainment, possible here in life, now, through your own mental efforts. Spirituality is the state of accomplishment. It is just like the blossoming of a flower; it is the fulfillment of the growth of that flower. So, spirituality is the result of mental development onto Conscious levels.

"Every scribe which is instructed unto the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is a householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure things new and old." Let us not despise the new because it has yet to show the polish that comes with age; likewise, let us not forsake the old simply because new things are appearing. If old things pass, it is only because their essence fills the new (Ecc. 1:9-11).

The Origins & Development of African TheologyThe Origins & Development of African Theology
Gwinyai H. Muzorewa;
It is believed that African theology must be understood in the context of African life and culture and the creative attempt of African peoples to shape a new future that is different from the colonial past and the neo-colonial present. The African situation requires a new theological methodology that is different from the approaches of the dominant theologies of the West. African theology must reject, therefore, the prefabricated ideas of North Atlantic theology by defining itself according to the struggles of the people in their resistance against the structures of domination. Our task as theologians is to create a theology that arises from and is accountable to African people (1979:193).


Who Am I? The Supreme Understanding

Bhagwan has been hailed by many as one of the brightest lights of the modern spiritual world.

: Sannyas: the Meaning Of DiscipleshipSannyas: the Meaning Of Discipleship
Bhagwan Ra Afrika;
This book is like a "bible" for all serious devotees who are on a spiritual path! It lays out the requirements for sincere seekers of truth as they MUST be acknowledged and lived by in order to truly be considered a "Sannyasin"(one who has taken a vow of renunciation from the world(ego-based living) and has commited himself/herself to a life and living that is spiritual). It is a book that reveals the rareity of a true and real disciple. In it you will find the reasons why it has always been the case, since time immemoriable,that great spiritual Masters have had few disciples who were courageous enough to align their lives with the discipline that is mandatory in the living of a spiritual life.

: Infinite Happiness : Right Here Right Now (The Ra Ananda Sutra (the Teachings on Divine Happiness, Vol. I)Infinite Happiness : Right Here Right Now
 (The Ra Ananda Sutra (the Teachings on Divine Happiness, Vol. I)

Bhagwan Ra Afrika;
I am truly electrified by the "stark" simplistic way that Bhagwan can expound on deep matters pertaining to the mind and spirit. We are infinitely blessed to live in a time when someone with so pure an intelligence can actually be accessed right here, right now! This book has also helped me to understand the most important thing that lies always at the beginning of any quest for truth, MYSELF. To "know thyself" has always been the first and foremost advise given to sincere seekers by all sages and seers since time immemoriable.

The Path of Brotherhood
(Climb the Highest Mountain Series)

Mark Prophet; 
Prior to the "Fall" on the ancient continent of Lemuria, men and women lived blissfully in a golden-age paradise. Their souls evolved in love, peace and harmony. Everyone embodied the principle of being their brother's keeper. In the dark ages that occurred after the fall, souls lost their moorings, their sense of unity and oneness with God and became increasingly aware of there sense of separation and outer differences. today, many pay lip service to the principles of brotherly love while their minds are often full of condemnation, and they are seething with emotion against one another. Even some churches have become more engaged in the struggle with one another than in training men and women for the vicissitudes of life. In The Path of Brotherhood, Mark and Elizabeth Prophet demonstrate how brotherhood is possible, and crucial, today. They take a mystical look at the Twelve Tribes, the Twelve Apostles, the Golden-Age Family and spiritual keys to reaching world brotherhood, which includes the realization of a spirit of unity and cooperation in spiritual organizations.


The Book of the Mysteries of the Heavens and the Earth:
And Other Works of Bakhayla Mikael (Zosimas) -
Bakhayla Mikael;

This is The Book of the Mysteries of the Heavens and the Earth: And Other Works of Bakhayla Mikael (Zosimas) by Wallis Budge. 175pgs. An occult masterpiece in the tradition of Enoch and Esoteric studies.

The Book of the Mysteries of the Heavens and the Earth was E. A. Wallis Budge's (b. 1857) last completed translation before he passed away in 1934. It was first published in 1935 in a limited edition that is extremely hard to find today. This edition makes available for a new generation an Ethiopian text that was believed to have been revealed to its scribe by the archangel Gabriel in the 15th century. It lays out mystical cosmography, including the angelic hierarchy, gives an interpretation of St. John's Revelation, and contains discourses on the godhead, the trinity, and the birth of Enoch. This work is of value for students of esotericism, Gnosticism, and African culture, as it sheds light on the distinctive features of Ethiopian Christianity -- an intriguing blend of magical practice and orthodox theology. R. A. Gilbert's foreword explains the evolution of Christianity and religious literature in Ethiopia and the significance of this work among Sir Wallis Budge's many translations of ancient religious texts.

Cover may not depict edition offered for saleThe Alchemy of Happiness
KNOW, O beloved, that man was not created in jest or at random, but marvelously made and for some great end. Although he is not from everlasting, yet he lives for ever; and though his body is mean and earthly, yet his spirit is lofty and divine. When in the crucible of abstinence he is purged from carnal passions he attains to the highest, and in place of being a slave to lust and anger becomes endued with angelic qualities."


An African-Centered Critique of European Cultural Thought and Behavior

Marimba Ani -
An Extraordinary Scholarly Work!
The author states:" I started out wanting to know what could possess and entire race of people to participate in the most atrocious (sp) crime against humanity -- the four hundred year African slave trade--- I found the answer in "Yurugu". As it turns out, it makes perfect sense how Europeans could... The secret Europeans discovered early in their history is that culture carries rules for thinking, and that if you could impose your culture on your victims you could limit the creativity of their vision, destroying their ability to act with will and intent and in their own interest. The truth is that we are all "intellectuals," all potential visionaries.
This book discusses the evolution of that process of imposition as well as the characteristics of cultural beings who find it necessary to impose their will on others. It is not a simple process to explain, since the tools we need in order to dissect it have been taken from us through colonial miseducation. It is necessary to begin, therefore, with a painful weaning from the very epistemological assumptions that strangle us. The weaning takes patience and commitment, but the liberation of our minds is well worth the struggle.

Certain principles when turned over in the mind and meditated upon may provide solutions to a vast range of problems. The second portion of the book is an invaluable, concise essay on the profound significance ideas and symbols have upon the building of cultures, civilizations and personalities.


Book CoverAfrican Religions & Philosophy
John S. Mbiti
More than just a monolithic scope of African beliefs and a short illustration, according to European critics, of pagan and heathen symbolism, African Religions and Philosophies is indeed a book worth reading. Not only, does it portray the elegance of African belief systems, but, it also portrays the intellectual and innate spiritual nature of African societies.



The Spirituality of African Peoples:
The Search for a Common Moral Discourse

Peter J. Paris
Eminent black social ethicist Peter Paris focuses on African "spirituality"--the religious and moral values pervading traditional African religious worldviews. Paris's careful scholarship and his eye for value in varying cultural milieus combine to model comparative cultural analysis.


Book CoverAfrican Spirituality:
On Becoming Ancestors

Anthony Ephirim-Donkor

Focusing on the Akan people in Ghana as a resource for examining the overall conception of human development, this study is the first of its kind to concentrate on specific developmental processes of an African people from the ancestral world to the mundane and back to the ancestral world. From their beliefs concerning reincarnation, conception, birth, education, ethical existence and generativity, eldership, and death, the Akan people have developed a sequence of culturally defined life stage. This paradigm is predicated on a theory of personality that has its ontological basis in God (Nana Nyame) and the primordial woman and her children that formed the original matrilineal community, the ebusua. This structural model utilizes myths and concepts, rites, dreams, and elements that form the basis for human development among the Akan people. Applying the work of Erik Erikson and James Fowler, the author examines the vast, systematized, and holistic Akan concept of personality.




The Temple of Man Cover

Food For Body, Mind and Soul, A Holistic Health Guide Based on Ancient Egyptian Medical Teachings

For this kind of health one must have a keen understanding of the body-mind-soul connection and, what it means to be truly healthy.

Egyptian Mystics:
Seekers of the Way

Moustafa Gadalla -
This book explains how Ancient Egypt is the origin of alchemy and present-day Sufism, and how the mystics of Egypt camouflage their practices with a thin layer of Islam.    The book also explains the progression of the mystical Way towards enlightenment, with a coherent explanation of its fundamentals and practices. It shows the correspondence between the Ancient Egyptian calendar of events and the cosmic cycles of the universe. It also provides the evidence that Ancient Egypt is the source of the Christian calendar of holidays (ex: Easter, Last Supper, Christmas, Lent, Ascension Day, Pentecost, Epiphany, Transfiguration, etc).  Moustafa is biased by neither Abrahamic religion nor Academic status, which in the study of ancient lands and its peoples puts him in the small minority, and as such his highlighting of the misdeeds these groups is laid clearly and factually with well documented research and common sense. There are those who consider his work controversial and Egyptian Mystics is not a book to placate history from an Abrahamized outlook, rather it is a document that shows a breathing culture who have maintained traditions, albeit surreptitiously, for thousands of years and more.

The Mysteries of Isis or the Science of Mythematics
Translated from the Original Mythic Symbols

The lectures in this book are intended to: be a guide to a more elevated existence in the future; abolish the love and worship of the god dollar, which is the ruling power of the age and often leads to the total depravity of the heart followed by the most licentious practices. In this spirit the work was given a gratuitous circulation upon publication. Partial Contents: The Mysteries of Isis; Lecture I. Science of Mythematics; Lecture II. Adam and Eve; Lecture III. Cain and Abel; Lecture IV. Satan Let Loose and the Death of Abel; Lecture V. Death of Enoch; Lecture X. Pluto Beguiles a True Patriarch of the House of Shem; and Lecture XIV. The Gemini.


Cover of Ancient Egyptian Pyramid Texts

The Ancient Egyptian Pyramid Texts
Raymond Oliver Faulkner; The ancient Egyptian Pyramid Texts, dating from the later half of the third millennium BC, are the oldest corpus of religious literature surviving from ancient Egypt.

Culture and Customs of Egypt
Molefi Kete Asante -
Part of the "Culture And Customs Of Africa" series, Culture And Customs Of Egypt by Molefi KeteAsante (Professor, Department of African American Studies, Temple University) is a straightforward and reader accessible look at daily life in modern Egypt, including its people, history, religion, art, food, social customs and much, much more.  Modern Egypt blends African history and geography with Arab culture and religion. With its position at the crossroads of Africa, its status as a major Islamic nation, and continuing interest in its ancient monuments, Egypt makes for fascinating study. This volume provides an accessible, up-to-date overview of a society that greatly evolved, yet retains traces of attitudes and behaviors from the days of the Pharaohs.



Metu Neter Vol. 1:
The Great Oracle of Tehuti and the Egyptian System of Spiritual Cultivation

Ra Un Nefer Amen -
This is known as THE Book. This is the book that puts the science in African-centered spirituality. By revealing the essence of the oldest religion in the world, Ra Un Nefer Amen gives the practical keys to unlocking the "secrets" of the uni-verse. Of course, much will be missed by readers, because they will only read the book, but not apply its teachings. Reading a book about spirituality does not raise one's consciousness. Applying the teachings in Metu Neter Vol. I will.

E. A. Wallis Budge - was Keeper of Egyptian and Assyrian Antiques in the British Museum and author of numerous works.
The legend of Osiris says he was murdered by his brother Seth and resurrected, with the aid of his wife Isis, thus becoming god of the underworld. The author believes he is one of the most important ancient Egyptian deities, with his origins in the Predynastic Era. He attempts to establish a relationship between the cult of Osiris and other African religions. In the first volume, he examines iconographies of Osiris in general and interprets Osiris as an ancestral spirit, judge of the dead, moon god and a bull god. In the second volume, the focus is on the funeral and burial practices, the idea of the Ka, and also the spread of Osiris and Isis to neighbouring lands.

Egyptian Yoga: The Philosophy of Enlightenment
Muata Abhaya Ashby - Reginald Muata Ashby holds a Doctor of Philosophy Degree in Religion. He is an independent researcher and practitioner of Egyptian, Indian and Chinese Yoga and studied Yoga under the supervision of Spiritual masters for over four years. This book is definitely one of the best additions to my library. Dr. Ashby gives a great analysis of the most complex knowledge system known to humankind. Not only does he know what he is talking about, but he is able to transform the wisdom of the ancients into the limited framework of the English

 language. Very powerful. If one is seeking enlightenment, this book definitely provides a step in the right direction.

Maat the 11 laws of God
Ra Un Nefer Amen -
In keeping with the tradition established with the Metu Neter Vols 1 and 2, the author delivers both devastating insight and clear instruction on how to make use of it in our lives. Six stars would not suffice. Simply a must for every home library.

Book CoverThe Ankh: African Origin of Electromagnetism
Nur Ankh Amen - For those people interested in the historical significane and powerful meaning of the ankh, as well as its scientific properties this book would be great reading for you.

My one suggestion to any reader would be, keep an open mind. It is not a book rooted in the status quo, by any means. Some of the scientific evidence is truly intriguing but if you are not accustomed to reading about electromagnetism and the properties of it, then this might be a little hard to follow at times.


Historical Deception: The Untold Story of Ancient Egypt
Moustafa Gadalla - When ancient Egyptian history is compared with the Biblical stories that came later, and also compared with Greek history and mythology, the evidence is clear. In the book, one will discover the truth about fundamental entities such as the Ten Commandments, the Dead Sea Scrolls, Hebrews in Egypt, Biblical passages, and the major impact of Egypt on today's societies. Read with an open mind what the author had researched and uncovered about the original and Biblical stories of Jesus, Moses, David, and read about Ausar (Osiris), Aset (Isis), Heru (Horus) and Set (Satan).

Gadalla's chiming logic, straightforward language, and demystifying graphics make the ineffable seem obvious. As accessible as it is brilliant. Do your consciousness a favor and read this book.

Freemasonry: Ancient Egypt and the Islamic Destiny
Mustafa El-Amin - This book is very powerful reading. Every African-American should read this very informative bit of information. It will cause you to ponder what has been going on for years.

Ancient Egyptian Mysticism and Its Relevance Today
John Van Auken - John Van Auken puts forth more ideas regarding ancient myths surrounding the 'old' world. However, he proves that old does not mean less knowledge.

Either you believe in your heart there is much more to ancient Egypt, or you scoff at the thought. For those that know the truth, read this work with an open heart, you won't be kept in the dark any longer.

Historical Deception: The Untold Story of Ancient Egypt
Moustafa Gadalla - I recommend this book to every person who would rather learn from evidence, than from stories. While religious stories from the distant past often invoke awe and deep spirituality for a lot of people, these same people should not necessarily ignore the sources of these sacred stories. In this book, the author does not tell Christians to stop believing in Christ, nor does he tell those who are inspired by the life stories of Jesus Christ, Moses and David to stop being inspired. What he does in the book is reveal information that has been deliberately hidden by those who do not want people to know from where their deep spirituality and beliefs originated. Egypt.


The Hidden Properties of Matter
Muata Abhaya, Dr. Ashby For the spiritual aspirant and those who are serious about learning, I highly recommend it. It's written very well and easy to understand.


The Secret Books of the Egyptian Gnostics: An Introduction to the Gnostic Coptic Manuscripts Discovered at Chenoboskion
Jean Doresse - Historically the Gnostic Texts were found just a few years after the discovery of the famous Nassene “Dead Sea Scrolls” of Qumrân that had caused such a sensation. Many scholars now agree that the Coptic Gnostic Texts are even more valuable, in that they reveal the essence of a religion that Christianity tried to obliterate—and whose oddly traced images and message of spiritual liberation is asserting itself today in the new form of MODERN GNOSTICISM.




Solomon & Sheba: Inner Marriage and Individuation

Author: Koltuv, Barbara Black
Retail Price: $10.95
The story or archetype of Solomon and Sheba may be understood on several levels. It is a simple, splendid love story; it is also the story of the heart's journey toward individuation, a conjunction of the masculine and feminine principle existing in every human psyche. Men and women grow because of their relationship with each other and this alchemical experience is brilliantly explained by Koltuv, a New York based Jungian analyst and champion storyteller. Many illustrations.

Bandlet of Righteousness: An Ethiopian Book of the Dead
E.A Wallis Budge




The Queen of Sheba and Her Only Son Menyelek
Al Imam Obaba; Paperback - The only currently available edition of Sir E A Wallis Budge's translation of the famed 'KEBRA NAGAST' combining Budge's erudition with a poetic sense which the late colonial British were sometimes noted for. Budge's introductory essay alone is worth the price of the book, even if containing some outdated and offensive references to 'Negro savages' and the like. Note: the edition herein is a photo-reproduction of a volume in the Library of Congress, and is missing several pages which, using interlibrary loan services, I have found missing from original copies of the 1922 edition east of the Mississippi; the missing material has been forwarded to African Islamic Mission, but I have no data on whether it has been included since my correspondence. The missing parts include, always, "How Solomon Recognized His Firstborn Son" and "The Plot to Steal the Ark From the Temple in Jerusalem". The book evinces an origin during a perhaps-apocryphal time when Judaism was the dominate religion in Ethiopia, and shows further evidences of a somewhat-tortuous rewrite when Christianity became dominant; but the story may have been all an invention from the time of the 'Restoration' of the Solomonic Dynasty under Yekuno Amlak in the 13th Century.

The Holy Piby by Shepherd Robert Athlyi Rogers, Miguel Lorne (Introduction), Ras Sekou Tafari, Robert Athtyi Rogers, Robert Athlyi Rogers .  The doctrine that would provide the actual interpretative basis of Rastafari ideology.

The Holy Piby is the documented vision, message and aspiration of shepherd Athyli Rogers. The work strengthened the Rastafari movement, but was banned in Jamaica. At last this book is available to all.  103pp

The Budge version reads in a formal, Biblical style.  241 pp.

Art That Heals: The Image As Medicine in Ethiopia
Jacques Mercier;
This text demonstrates the difference between Westerners' passive admiration of representational images and the intense interaction with art characteristic of native African and American cultures. Westerners may have extended the use of the art-image beyond the purely representational, but in Ethiopia the power transmitted from art to believers is actually used to heal. "Art that Heals" examines a variety of colourful objects: church frescos from the 15th to the 20th century, processional crosses, drawings, codices, and icons - all used by the clergy of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church not as passive objects but as active forces to heal the sick.

Bandlet of Righteousness: An Ethiopian Book of the Dead translated by E.A. Wallis Budge. An Ethiopian prayer from the Mashafa Heywat (Book of Life). Ancient Ethiopic text. Of all the surviving magical works written in Ethiopic and Amharic, this is the most curious and interesting. Although it purports to be Christian, it in fact owes much to the Jewish, Egyptian, and "magical" traditions of the region. The book's foundation is a much abbreviated and more succinct form of the Egyptian Book of the Dead, upon which strong elements of Christianity, Gnosticism, and Hebraic apocrypha have been laid, most likely from early Greek or Syrian translations and original Coptic texts. The "bandlet" to which the original refers is a strip of linen or parchment as long as the body of the person for whom it was prepared, on which were written the secret names of God, meant to ensure protection in the next world.


Image Not AvailableThe Ethiopic Version of the Book of Enoch
R.H. Charles
Thought lost for millennia after being banned by dogmatic, early Christian authorities, The Book of Enoch remains one of the oldest extant mystical documents. It is referred to in the Hebrew Zobar, the Epistle of St. Jude, and is considered by some a very early draft of -- or at least a critical influence on -- the New Testament.

Enoch the Ethiopian: The Lost Prophet of the Bible: Greater Than Abraham, Holier Than Moses by Indus Khamit Kush. Lost prophet of the Bible, Enoch, has been preserved only in Ethiopia. This new book is an excellent study of the Holy One. Chapters include The stolen legacy of the Bible, Enoch's lineage, African Origins of Man, Ethiopian Church canonization of Enoch, Enoch's New Testament legacy and the African origins of the Hebrew. Very interesting work.  302 pp.



Sample CoverThe Heart of the Qur'an:
An Introduction to Islamic Spirituality

Lex Hixon -
A Muslim mystic meditates on select verses from the Koran in an accessible and highly revealing way, opening the reader to the spiritual depths of Islam.  Through clear and accessible language, Hixon illustrates how the teachings of Islam can be applied to contemporary everyday life issues such as love, relationships, justice, work, and self-knowledge. In addition to the selections themselves, the book contains readable, lively introductions to the tradition of Islam, its basic precepts, and what it says about other religions.




"Arab Conspiracies Against Islam"

The theme 'The Arab conspiracies against Islam' is thought provoking rather than a controversy. The book drew a line in making the distinction between what is Arabic religion and what is Islam. Non-Muslims around the world who know very little about Islam will be overwhelmed to discover the nucleus of bigotry dominating the Arabic religion. It also explains why the followers of the Arabic religion around the world are downtrodden and humiliated, and why the majority of them became redundant and think radically and why they prefer violence instead of tolerance.

For example, they condemn people around the world as infidels for worshiping idols or icons carved from the mountain rocks and fervently declared Jihad against them as a battle for the sake of Allah. But they feel sanctified when they bow and prostrate to a rock structure carved by the Arabs. They call Allah when they aggress and they also call Him when oppressed. But the same Allah seems to have abandoned them - all the time.

This book gives details how the primitive Arabic culture and tribal laws infiltrated into Islam featuring it as a religion espousing terrorism, fanaticism and inward looking. The author unveils the evidences from the Qur'an to prove the innovator of the Arabic religion has truly corrupted the scripture instilling a dogmatic creed satiated with uncultured and the nastiest barbaric way of life. In his study the truth has indeed emerged which strongly contrast with the present controversies.

The research is useful for those who are seeking for a subject such as the one detailed in this book. It will become much clearer when the readers set aside ideological hypothesis and, as their sole criteria, rely on established facts, logical deduction, and the power of reasoning.
FROM THE AUTHOR:  I must state that my real name is not Aidid Safar. The Arabic religion today is insanity sometimes masquerading as a shaggy dog story. From Morocco to the Philippines, over one billion people have been fooled to be happily part of this insanity.

Others have had death sentence pronounced upon them for saying much less than what I am saying in this book. In many so-called 'Muslim' countries, my authorship of this book will mean persecution, prosecution, imprisonment and may be even death at the hands of more than insane followers of the Arabic Religion. However the message is always more important than the messenger. Throughout history, bearers of messages deemed as bad have sometimes been killed. On the other hand, bearers of messages deemed as good have often been idolized. I wish to avoid both these fates. I shall remain Aidid Safar. But still we are here.

Medicine of the Prophet
Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya; Translated by Penelope Johnstone, Oxford University

Al-Tibb al-Nabawi, or Medicine of the Prophet, by Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya (691-751AH/1292-1350AD) is the most renowned example of the body of work known in the Islamic world as "Prophetic medicine" or "medicine of the Prophet." Ibn Qayyim aims to give guidance stemming from the Prophet for the preservation and restoration of both physical and spiritual health. Despite its medical content, the Medicine of the Prophet differs from the writings of earlier physicians, such as Razi, Tabari and Ibn Sina, in that it is written by a theologian who is more concerned with piety than medical theory. Ibn Qayyim’s book is of great interest in that it gives a wide range of customs and attitudes current at the time and the practices of ordinary people.


Healing with the Medicine of the Prophet
Imam Ibn Qayyim Al-Jauziyah

Healing with the Medicine of the Prophet is the panacea for those in search of good health. It is a magnificent work that is a treasure every Muslim household. Although it was written by the author, Ibn Al-Qayyim, over six hundred and fifty years ago, it is extremely timely work for our generation in which health and natural health care products have become an important aspect of the lives of so many. The author presents the guidance of the Prophet in dealing with a variety of health issues, including treatment of ailment and preventive remedies to keep the body fit.  The final chapters the this work include an extremely beneficial glossary of remedies, herbs, foods and other natural substances that aid in the journey towards better health.   Healing with the Medicine of the Prophet is an invaluable reference guide for the people of every land and every generation.


The Beloved:
Reflections on the Path of the Heart

Kahlil Gibran
Exquisite writings on love, marriage, and the spiritual union of souls add a fresh dimension to our understanding of the philosophy of love and the transformation of one's life through its all-encompassing power. 
I have probably not read any author with more of a gift for beautiful words than Kahlil Gibran. Just reading the English translation for this collection of his love-related Arabic works makes my bones ache with the amazing insights he portrays through moving language. This book is a very well assembled collection, with a decent introduction about Gibrans life

Islamic Talismanic Tradition in Nineteenth-Century Asante
(African Studies, Vol 21)

David Owusu-Ansah
A study of the three bundles of Arabic Manuscripts from the Guinea Coast found in 1963 at the Royal Library in Copenhagen. The first part focuses on the examination of the instructions for making charms and amulets. The second part reviews factors that explain the popularity of Muslim charms in Asante. Particular attention is paid to specific historical events in Asante from 1804 to 1867.

The Sufi Brotherhoods in the Sudan
Ali Salih Karrar -
This is a comprehensive historical study of the Islamic mystical brotherhoods of the northern Sudan. Based on new or previously inaccessible oral and written sources, it traces the change from lineage-based holy clans to centralized supra-tribal brotherhoods in the 19th century. It links this evolution to both external influences from Egypt and Arabia and changes in northern Sudanese society brought about by Egyptian colonial rule. The analysis of this fundamental shift in the nature of religious organization is seen as a major contributory factor in the Mahdist Revolutiuon of 1882-5. The last two chapters present an account of the structure and rituals of the brotherhoods based on their own writings. The work seeks to serve as a corrective to earlier histories of Islam in the Sudan and as a basis for understanding of the role of the brotherhoods in modern Sudanese society.

: Al-Ghazzali: His Psychology of the Greater Struggle

Al-Ghazzali: His Psychology of the Greater Struggle
by: Laleh Bakhtiar
Dr. Bakhtiar has done a great service through this book. She provides the text and a commentary on Topic One of Al-Ghazzali's Prolegomena: Know Yourself. As a whole, the book is perhaps the best introduction to "Traditional Psychology" I have ever read, very interesting and full of insights.

While Al-Ghazzali followed the Sufi path, this book can easily be appreciated by anyone interested in spirituality and self-growth, since the principles are universal to all Traditional religions. A must have!

Yakub: The Father of Mankind
Elijah Muhammad - Everyone with a true knowledge of the bible knows that Adam and Eve were not the start of civilization history has proved that. Adam and Eve were created in a region of people of color. That means Adam and Eve were not white. When Kane killed Able he was banished from the garden of Eden and went away and married whom did he marry if there was not life before them. This is excellent reading for the black man and woman. It will certainly be disturbing to those whom are not African.

Kahlil Gibran - Each short is unique and beautiful. The way he articulates, the metaphors he uses, the message he puts forth....It all comes together and just makes you smile! And I smiled and nodded my head while reading most of this book. I couldn't put it down. I read it straight through in one sitting, and I'm about to go through it again. I really felt this book and learned a great deal from it. From the first sentence of the first reflection and on from there I was and still am captivated.

Idries Shah - Learning How to Learn is for those who wish to learn more about Sufism or eastern psychologies, or who simply wish to have a better grasp on their own consciousness. It presents a fresh viewpoint on human psychology, learning and spirituality. The author illustrates that much of what we consider to be human thought is in reality little more than chains of habit or conditioning. Much of the book is in a question and answer format, presenting a comprehensive introduction to Sufic thought.

Al Ghazali -
This book is easy to read and very slim, so it does not take long for a person to read through it at least once. Most people, however, will want to take longer so they can reflect on what Al-Ghazali is saying. Basically, he breaks down the 5 pillars of Islam and focuses on each one and how to perfect one's worship in that pillar.  He lists techniques to be better at performing prayer and being closer to Allah while doing so. The best part is that he explains how even the companions of the Prophet (saw) had problems and were not perfect in their worship. It is a constant struggle, and his book helps in that struggle. A must read for everyone who is interested strengthening their faith.

It may not be a bad idea to get closer to the Ultimate Power in your life time. This is not a book for the beginners who are trying to figure out the meaning of life and our relationship with God but for those who don't have any doubts in their minds and a feeling of completeness... this may shed some light on how to get closer. You must demolish all your pre conceived notions within your brain and enter the abstract world before you read it.

The Golden Age of the Moor (Journal of African Civilizations, Vol 11, Fall 1991)
Ivan Van Sertima -
The Moors were among the most civilized peoples of the world in their time. The book has a wealth of detail about that civilization. The most interesting thesis in my mind was that the Moors were a source of the knowledge that flooded Europe in the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, and thus were coauthors of the renaissance, along with the Arabs and Turks on the other side of the Mediterranean.




Biblical History of Black Mankind
C. McGhee Livers -
This is one of the best written and most informative books that I have ever read. The author is a Greek and Hebrew Language scholar. She has translated selected text from a copy of the original Hebrew and Greek manuscripts of the Old and New Testament Bible. As she translated these languages into English she found details concerning the origin of Mankind. This book includes details concerning the following: Blacks Great Biblical Heritage, Origin of Blacks Revealed, Black Skin: A Sign of Prosperity, Origin of Whites and Jews Revealed. These details are not made known in the English translations of our present Bibles. Every household should have a copy of this revolutionary work. The author notes on the back of her book that she believes she was predestined to write this book, "For such a time as this."



God and the Law of Relativity -
Ben Ammi -
In this the second installment of the Resurrection Trilogy, Ben Ammi explains in clear and concise terms one of the most important laws of the creation, the Law of Relativity. Ben Ammi breaks down the relationship between a person's thoughts and actions, their successes and failures. Each deed is preceded by a thought. Godly thoughts, he teaches, can only produce Godly actions and responses, i.e. health, happiness, peace and strength. Ungodly thoughts however, produce the exact opposite -- the state of most of the world today. Ultimately, he explains, one can determine who a person is by how he thinks. For it is in this thinking that one manifests good or evil, life or death.

6th and 7th Book of Moses.
This book has long been hailed as a valuable tool in the study and practice of cabalistic magic. Includes the Magical Uses of the Psalms.
This book contains the seals of angelic, planetary, and demonic spirits. If you are a Christian and practice Hoodoo, this book has an excellent treatise on Magic and the Bible. This occult knowledge isn't for the novice and must be approached in all seriousness. I have relied on the seals many times when performing conjure work and the results have been excellent.

Malka concentrates on the early part of the century, when Jews accounted for only a handful of the total Sudanese population. Most of them hailed from the larger cosmopolitan environments of Egypt, and most had emigrated by the 1960s, owing to increased tensions in the Mideast.

Gospel of Barnabas
Lonsdale Ragg - This was by far one of the MOST personal and revealing accounts of the sermons of Jesus as recorded by the Disciple whom Jesus loved, Barnabas. Barnabas was one of the two men to be chosen by the 11 apostles to fill in for Judas' vacant seat in the apostle hood. He was with Jesus from the baptism, to the Ascension. Jesus personally asks Barnabas to hold these words close to him. For he knew of the people making up stories about his Divinity and mission. Banned by the church. One of the new testament "Apocrypha" meaning "hidden from the people". Reading this changed my life and gave me a deeper and closer love of the most misunderstood man ever, Jesus, son of Mary. Highly recommended.

The Scriptures of the Amanazaretha of Ekuphakameni:
Selected Writings of the Zulu Prophets Isaiah and Londa Shembe

Irving Hexham - This unique book is the first book length translation of African sacred texts to be translated into English. It provides the reader with unique insights into what is arguably the best known of all African Independent Churches, the amaNazaretha of the Zulu prophet Isaiah Shembe. Anyone who teaches Religious Studies or Anthropology who has used the BBC film Zulu Zion is familiar with this important new religious movement. Now one can read the teachings of its founder. 

Considerable controversy has been generated about the exact nature of the movements known as African Independent Churches. Are they, as some writers suggest, simply African adaptations of Christianity, or are they new religions in their own right? To date, most of the people arguing about these issues have lacked access to the sacred scriptures of the movements they claim to study.

This translation presents for the first time in English the major scriptures of the best-known of all African Independent Churches, the amaNazaretha of South Africa. The translation of the Zulu prophet Isaiah Shembe's work was made by his grandson Londa Shembe, who succeeded his father as the "third Shembe" and prophet of the church at the holy city of EKuphaKameni. Now, the key scriptures of the amaNazaretha of EKuphaKameni are available in English.
Londa Shembe
was the grandson of Isaiah Shembe, Zulu prophet and founder of the amaNazaretha.

Mandinka Legends from Pakao, Senegal (African Sources for African History, 5)

Matt Schaffer
This book contains some of the finest examples of Mandinka oral tradtions ever published, both in English and the original Mandinka, along with a chapter of Mandinka Arabic script texts translated into English. As a complement to the author's ethnography of the Mandinka published in 1980/1987, this book presents legends about jihad leaders, witchcraft, local Islam, cosmology, the founding of villages, great leaders among women, notable social institutions and other significant people and places. The Pakao country of southern Senegal developed into a West African center of pilgrimage. This book reveals the linguistic richness of Mandinka as an African literature in its own right and contributes to broader Mande studies. Since Mandinka figured prominently in the trans-Atlantic slave trade, this book also lays a basis for future work by the author on a cultural legacy of Mandinka in the New World.

Book CoverIn Sorcery's Shadow:
A Memoir of Apprenticeship Among the Songhay of Niger

by Paul Stoller, Cheryl Olkes
For me, the book provides more evidence for the hypothesis that the "Western paradigm" is just one of many, and not that empowering at that. If we start to tinker with our paradigm by "apprenticing" to cultures based on hard, merciless and pragmatic obsession with spiritual power (such as the Songhai) we are in for a tough ride.  The Songhay have once possessed the largest empire in African history; their formidable magician-king Sunni Ali created an elaborate and effective administrative system extending all the way up to Timbuktu and even Morrocco and, as Stoller shows in this book, Sunni Ali's memory is still very much alive in contemporary Niger.

The Unknown She:
Eight Faces of an Emerging Consciousness

Hilary Hart - Is there a mystical consciousness particularly natural to women? And if so, what role is it playing in the spiritual evolution of our world? To answer these questions, Hilary Hart traveled across the world meeting with contemporary mystics from a variety of traditions including Lakota Sioux, Sufism, Buddhism, and West-African Shamanism. The revelations of feminine wisdom offered from these encounters are not conceptual teachings, but vivid examples of lived spirituality expressed sometimes through simple ways of being, sometimes through profound mystical experiences. Revolutionary and remarkably practical, The Unknown She offers a startling new look at women's unique mystical orientation and its place in the evolution of our universal consciousness.

Cultural Universals and Particulars:
An African Perspective

Kwasi Wiredu
The eminent Ghanaian philosopher Kwasi Wiredu confronts the paradox that while Western cultures recoil from claims of universality, previously colonized peoples, seeking to redefine their identities, insist on cultural particularities.

The Africans Who Wrote the Bible
Nana Banchie Darkwah - "This book reveals secrets I never thought existed behind Christian faith. Every Christian must read to understand their faith. This book is written based upon the African language similarities with those of present-day Africa, ancient Africa and words found within the bible. With that said, there are sightings noted from various African nations throughout West Africa. The thing that should be noted is that the author clearly states that the Jewish people are not the original Hebrews. The author is under the opinion that the original Hebrew people were African people who left probably during the so-called Exodus. The present day Jewish people as stated within the book still carry African names. If I read this correct, that is from cover to cover without skipping pages, this is what the author stated within the book.
