When I put on the burqua, my depraved brothers had roared so much with laughter that I came to blows with them, and instead of taking them to task, Amma had smacked me . -- Ismat Chugtai, More from the Autobiography , 1981 The toes [of a Chinese lady] are crushed up under the foot, so as to render the person perfectly lame: this is a less expensive mode of keeping a woman confined to the house, than having guards and a zenana the principle is the same. --Fanny Parkes, Wanderings of a Pilgrim, 1850 My aunt was already furious with me. She used to call me nasty names for reading the Quran so much she would say, Thank God, this girl hasn't learned anything else, otherwise she would have time for nothing at all. --Bibi Ashraf, How I Learned to Read and Write , 1899 The young wives were never allowed to see their husbands during the day but often when I played in the front courtyard I heard my name called softly and would be asked to convey love-lett ers between the temporarily separated couples. --Sunity Devee, Maharanee of Cooch Behar,The Autobiography of an Indian Princess, 1921 Using nineteenth and twentieth century texts, including personal accounts, biographies, poetry, fiction, satire, and essays, this collection puts together a vivid picture women s lives behind the purdah. There are biographical pieces by major reformers, quotations from contemporary newspapers, and a piece on film images of purdah. First-person accounts include the redoubtable Begums of Bhopal who, in or out of purdah, were excellent and enlightened rulers. And finally, there is Purdah in fiction, notably the tragic failure of an experiment in bringing one s wife out of purdah, depicted by Tagore. Printed Pages: 576. 001077

6 The Tibetan Book of the Dead: The Great Liberation Through Hearing in the Bardo

Francesca Fremantle and Chogyam Trungpa (trs.)

Shambhala, Boston, USA, 0-87773-074-1 / 9780877730743, Reprint, Paperback, New, New, 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
In this classic scripture of Tibetan Buddhism—traditionally read aloud to the dying to help them attain liberation—death and rebirth are seen as a process that provides an opportunity to recognize the true nature of mind. This unabridged translation of the Tibetan Book of the Dead emphasizes the practical advice that the book offers to the living. The insightful commentary by Chögyam Trungpa, written in clear, concise language, explains what the text teaches us about human psychology. This book will be of interest to people concerned with death and dying, as well as those who seek greater spiritual understanding in everyday life. Printed Pages: 208. 001631
