"Walk in the bright Way of Life
Where fire burns and water flows,
Where air blows and grass grows,
Where blossom blooms and fish swims,
Where bird flies and human thinks;
Where Spirit outlines the future
And Truth reigns.
Keep your eyes open
When Virtue smiles.
Keep your ears open
When Truth speaks.
Be at work when the Spirit of Wisdom
Outlines the times to come."

|The Teacher - Volume 1 - The Dawning Epoch, This book presents the first twelve years of lectures given by the Teacher, Peter Deunov (Beinsa Douno). Drawing on the great experience of Maria Mitovska as a Bulgarian disciple, combined with Harry Carr's background as a native Englishman, the translators have adapted the Teacher's words specifically for contemporary readers of the English language. The book has been written for those already some way into their spiritual development who are looking to work with this teaching or simply to deepen their knowledge. Extensive footnotes demonstrate the teaching's foundation in a mystical understanding of the Bible, enabling those brought up as Christians who have needed to seek esoteric wisdom elsewhere to continue the path of their development while reconnecting with their Christian root. 448 pages. $30."Every one of you needs to love and sanctify the Name of the Lord, to contribute towards the coming of the kingdom of God on earth, and to do everything you can to fulfil the will of God. So, the Lord first wants us to sanctify the Name of God, which primarily relates to the body; second, to desire the coming of the kingdom of God, which primarily relates to the heart; and third, to fulfil the will of God, which primarily relates to the mind." The Teacher gave a breathing formula that used these parts of the Lord's Prayer, to be said in the mind while breathing through the nose: While breathing in: May the Name of God be hallowed within me. Holding the breath: May the kingdom of God and His righteousness reign throughout me. When exhaling: May God's will be done.|

"In The Rays of the Sun when it is spoken about the "Mother", it means that Mother within Sentient Nature. Within the name "Mother", is hidden the Name of God. The exercises, The Rays of the Sun, are from the Temples of the initiated and are the music, speech and movements of the Sun. When you perform them, you become conductors of Love and Light, and you spread those rays and ideas that are to be transmitted throughout the world."|
|Dawning of a New Epoch: Collection of Lectures, This series of talks from 1914 explores the essential principles behind the teachings of the New Testament and the coming of the New Age. 88 pages, $5.50. "The majority of people do not realize the importance of this day. However, it will remain memorable for many, because today marks the end of one epoch and the beginning of another- a new one." "All our organs and body parts are serving, but at the same time limiting us. We should know their role so that they can function properly. Now the creation of the Spiritual Light body is our responsibility. Up till now in our evolution, most of the time it leaves us and we get separated from it. We should enter into relationship with all the entities that compose our body, that live in it and support our life. This means, as Christ says, to be united with Heaven, and this is our obligation. Christ Himself became one with all the entities. He sacrificed Himself not only on the cross, but the existence of everything we are living on now, comes from Christ, and for this reason, we love Him. He has left a treasure for us to use, not to become attached to. He has given it for us to benefit from, not to take and divide. Christ sacrificed Himself for this treasure, and if we do not use it properly, He will take it back.He has given it to us so that we may develop spiritually and prepare ourselves for the Angelic Life, in other words, after this earthly life to be able to make the transition to a higher life in the World of the Angels."|
|REPRINTED Prophet for Our Times, edited by David Lorimer, A biography of Beinsa Douno, followed by numerous excerpts from his talks, arranged by subject (God, the Noetic World, The Divine School, Master & Disciple, Fundamental Principles of Life, etc.) 272 pages $18 "It is only with and through love that the world will be set to rights. For my part, I am leaving. My work will continue on the other side. You do not have much time left. Be vigilant and do not be discouraged. You must all progress with greater enthusiasm. Be sincere and true to your mission. May peace be with you. A small task has been completed."|
|Rila - The Sacred Book- Selected from "Conversations at the Seven Rila Lakes" The inspiring Rila lakes and mountains were the setting for these inspired talks by the Master. With Bulgarian and English versions, 150 pages $8. "Sometimes you say to yourself: 'I do not feel like doing this, I do not feel like doing that.' This way you become petrified. A man has to know what to do - help where it is needed, water this tree, clean this fountain. You walk down the road and you see a rock - pick it up! The picking up of this rock will bring your great happiness. Do not ask: 'Why would I pick it up?'; when you pick it up, it will rejoice. The first thing is to work on our ascension and on the envrionment, in which we are placed, to be in service of everyone. All the people, to whom you have given one pear from your own garden, have become your friends. This is why it is good for your bags to be full of pears."|
|Peter Deunov - Prophet for the New Age - A Call to My People "In 1898, the angel Elohil gave a prophetic message to Peter Deunov that was addressed to the Bulgarian people. This message known as A Call to My People, proides the spiritual backgrdound for an understanding of the work of Peter Deunov. It announces the Second Coming of Christ in a New Age, in which the slavic nations will step foraward as the carriers of a new culture of love and brotherhood." (from the introduction by Harrie Salman) Although this message is addressed to Bulgarians, it is by proxy addressed to all who aspire to serve this Second Coming in the hearts of humanity. The commentary by Harrie Salman provides some useful insights into the correlations between Beinsa Douno's teachings and those of Rudolph Steiner. With Bulgarian and English versions, 115 pages $8. "Do not grieve God by your conduct; do not doubt His Truth, which He brings to you from the Heavenly Dwellings as a sign of His faithfulness and His love for you. Become enlightened, pull yourselves together, become conscious of the truth of life. He Who has given birth to you keeps watch over you. You know His Name. Doubt not nor hesitate, but put aside your faintheartedness; come to the eternal light of life to know the eternal ways of God, Who has raised you from the ashes of nothingness to the glory and greatness of immortality. Do not err, but make a place for Him Who gives you life. In Him the families, generations and nations do not disappear, but they are restored and regenerated through the same Eternal Spirit, who puts everything in this great Divine World in order. Renewal is a great blessing for you, which contributes to your becoming worthy of entering the path of light, which is endowed with peace and love at every step. This blessing is the powerful and eternal generator of life, which uplifts all the fallen in spirit. It is the path to salvation which unfortunate mankind takes, summoned from Heaven to perform one more heroic deed, with which everything that is destined will be completed.'"|
|The Grain of Wheat This book covers a vast variety of teachings, music, prayers, photographs, and stories of Beinsa Douno, 300 pages, $25."I teach a positive Teaching that you can apply in the life and I can attempt this with anyone, so long as he is sincere. That is the priviledge of my philosopy - that it can be applied in life. I am applying this divine science in practice." "The Grain of Wheat is the symbol of the human soul." "Most people say that life is difficult. Life is difficult when we think only about people and not about God." "The following thought will now come to your minds: which doctrine is correct? A correct doctrine is one which is founded on complete, absolute faith. That means even in life's most contradictory situations not allowing a shadow of doubt about God to enter one's mind." "Life is a place for setting things up, for work. If somebody has got dirty, it does not matter. Fetch some clean water and help him to clean himself. That is the path of love, of exaltation."|

|The Pentagram (Expanded Edition) This small, beautifully illustrated booklet contains an extract from Beinsa Douno's "Tuning of the Human Soul", taken from the Archives of Boyan Boev.

( FYI, for more on the Pentagram, go to the Pentagram section under Paneurhythmy on the website The Master Peter Deunov ) "When in danger, one can imaging holding a Pentagram in front of oneself, with the right hand holding the Ray of Justice, and with the left hand holding the Ray of Truth, pointing the top of the Pentagram at the object of threat and saying 'In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ I pray to God, the Great and Mighty One, to do whatever is needed and acceptable in His eyes. The holder of a Pentragram needs to work fo the Glory of God. When used correctly, the Pentagram will be a source of bounties and blessings.

|Harmonizing of the Human Soul - a Boyan D Boev Archive These excerpts from numerous conversations with the Master were recorded by Boyan Boev over an extensive period of time, at least from the 1920's through the 1940's. As Boyan Boev demonstrated in The Wellspring of Good, he has a special ability to extract an extensive and illuminating array of teachings from the Master. The material is excellent, and not readily available from other sources. Unfortunately, the translation and editing are less than optimal, but this isn't a major issue if you are willing to "read between the lines". 552 pages. $15."If man moves with the speed of an oxcart, ages will be needed for his consciousness to awake, but if he moves with the speed of light, it will take little time. The future order will be the order of Love; then, as an external manifestations of Love, four things will be applied: honesty, justice, purity, and selflessness. When they are applied in the social system, it will be improved. It is a solution to the issue, but how, after all, can it happen? This is an issue of awakening of the consciousness, because it is inside the human soul and has to manifest by itself. So which love will solve all human issues? It is Love in which honesty, justice and selflessness are included as elements."|

"You need music as a cure. In your life as a disciple you pass through great troubles and sudden changes, joys and worries, which deposit poisons in you. Music is a remedy for them. There are some kinds of feelings which could poison your whole organism and destroy your liver and bile. That is why the disciple should know how to sing.... The basic sound 'do' is the key of life. If sung correctly, man can obtain vital energy from the sun, which he can distribute to all parts of his body. By singing, we attract those forces of nature, which harmonize us. This is a law of attraction."
|Dance of the Soul (expanded edition) by Ardella Nathanael.

In addition, it contains many photographs from both the historic roots and the current expressions of Paneurhythmy, numerous stories and testimonials from Paneurhythmy participants, a fascinating exploration of the history of Paneurhythmy, and one of the most popular Paneurhythmy CD's, the violin and guitar performance by Yoanna Strateva and her son Bojidar Simov. 301 pages, $26 with CD, $22 without CD.

|The Blossoming of the Human Soul translated by Ernestina Staleva. A collection of twenty talks by Beinsa Douno given between 1914 and 1930. 376 pages, $14. "I would like to leave you with a vital awareness, namely that you are a bud upon which you should bestow your total conscious attention as this is one of the most important things in your life. Once your sould has blossomed, there is nothing greater than seeing the Divine World and all the possbilities it contains." "I want you to be free because only then will you be able to manifest yourselves and develop your talents and gifts. Only then will Love, Wisdom, Truth, Justice, and Virtue, which you manifest, be in their right places. If you apply this Teaching, you will be lively and joyful, deep as the sea and vast as the sky. You need profoundness now! If you live in this way, whatever suffering may come to you, the thought that God is with you and you are with God, will stand out in your mind. If you think in this way, God will take you down from the cross on which you are crucified."|
|The Language of Love, Lectures Given at the Seven Rila Lakes in the Summer of 1939 While all the talks of the Master Peter Deunov are valuable, the more recent talks such as these tend to be more in the language of modern culture, and thus somewhat easier to connect with. This translation is less-than-perfect, but the overall meaning is fairly clear. 175 pages, $9. "No matter how insignificant somebody might appear in society, there are being that are appointed to protect and guard him. One thing only is required from you - to listen to the voice of those, who guard you and take care of you. Whatever Love tells you - listen to its voice. The solving of all problesm lies in obedience to Love. If you with to learn how to understand the language of Love and oedience, you will enter the practical school of life."|

|Paneurythmy Volumes I and II. These books contain much of the deeper spiritual philosophy behind Paneurythmy. They include Viola's story of her time with the Master, a profound interpretation of Beinsa Douno's teachings on Paneurythmy and right living, with many quotes from the his teaching, the music and lyrics of Paneurythmy, as sung in Bulgaria, and instructions on the Paneurythmy. Volume II focuses on the Sunbeams and Pentagrams, and includes a special, updated version of the Pentagram symbol given by Beinsa Douno, that I have not seen anywhere else. The movement instructions may not be as precise as in other books, because the initial intended audience was school children. But as sourcebooks for deepening one's understanding of Beinsa Douno and Paneurythmy, these manuals are unparalleled. Vol.1, 144 pages. Vol.2, 82 pages. Purchase Options: Vol. 1 PDF e-book & with Vol. 2 printed copy - $20, Vol. 1 printed copy with Vol. 2 printed copy - $45. The Master on the Divine Mother Love theme in the Sunbeams: "Until now, man was living for himself. But from now on Mother Love, as an impulse within the consciousness of humanity, is urging an improvement for everyone without exception. Therefore, all people must act together for the well-being and happiness of the whole of humanity". "Unconditional Mother Love is the door through which man can enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Christ also pointed out to us that Love is the only path for salvation of the human soul." "Your Mother is coming."|
