Original Kriya Yoga Volume I: Step-by-step Guide to Salvation
Rangin Mukherjee - 2017
Through a combination of mis-communication and intentional alteration, however, most of what is taught as Kriya Yoga today is far from what was originally taught, often to the detriment of sincere practitioners. In this short, but practical and experiential guide, Sri Mukherjee reveals the techniques of Kriya Yoga, as originally taught by Lahiri Mahasaya. Sri Mukherjee is the disciple of Sri Gyanendranath Mukhopadhyay (Mukherjee) who compiled the Pranab Gita from the teachings of his Guru, Swami Pranabanandaji. Swami Pranabanandaji is well known as the main disciple of Lahiri Mahasaya, and so what is made available here has not been altered through the distorting effect of formal organizations (which Mahasaya and Pranabanandaji both eschewed), but has been kept intact through the age-old method of direct guru-to-disciple transmission. Fearing the loss of the original Kriya Yoga as taught by Lahiri Mahasaya, Sri Mukherjee has generously written this book in order to record and share this most valuable of all human knowledge.

With British Snipers to the Reich
C. Shore - 1988
Captain Shore’s enthusiasm for firearms and especially for rifles led him to take every possible opportunity to try out different weapons, ammunition and methods of shooting. His interest was combined with sound common sense, and he would never countenance a rumour about a particular weapon or incident unless he was able to confirm it for himself.As a result everything in this book is based on his personal experience. In World War II Captain Shore took part in the British landings at D-Day, and fought in Normandy and northern Europe. He came across many different weapons in varying condition, some of the worst being those used by the Dutch and Belgian resistance fighters. He was keen to learn from experienced snipers and then to train others, and he became an officer sniping instructor at the British Army of the Rhine Training Centre.He shares a wealth of first-hand knowledge of different rifles, pistols, machine guns, ammunition, telescopes, binoculars and all the equipment a sniper should carry. This is not only an account of sniping in World War II but also a guide to all aspects of sniping based on personal knowledge and experience in training and battle. Illustrated heavily with photos, pictures and other illustrations of snipers, their weapons and their tactics.
