Since the publication of Ghostwritten (1999), David Mitchell has rapidly established himself as one of the most inventive and important British novelists of the 21st century. In this landmark study, Rose Harris-Birtill reveals the extent to which Mitchell has created an interconnected fictional world across the full run of his writing. Covering Mitchell's complete fictions, from bestselling novels such as Cloud Atlas (2004), The Bone Clocks (2014) and number9dream (2001), to his short stories and his libretti for the operas Sunken Garden and Wake, this book examines how Buddhist influences inform the ethical worldview that permeates his writing. Using a comparative theoretical model drawn from the Tibetan mandala to map Mitchell's fictional world, Harris-Birtill positions Mitchell as central to a new generation of post-secular writers who re-examine the vital role of belief in galvanizing action amidst contemporary ecological, political and humanitarian crises. David Mitchell's Post-Secular World features two substantial new interviews with the author, a chronology of his fictions and a selected bibliography of important critical writings on his work.

Japanese Mandalas

The first broad study of Japanese mandalas to appear in a Western language, this volume interprets mandalas as sanctified realms where identification between the human and the sacred occurs. The author investigates eighth- to seventeenth-century paintings from three traditions: Esoteric Buddhism, Pure Land Buddhism, and the kami-worshipping (Shinto) tradition. It is generally recognized that many of these mandalas are connected with texts and images from India and the Himalayas. A pioneering theme of this study is that, in addition to the South Asian connections, certain paradigmatic Japanese mandalas reflect pre-Buddhist Chinese concepts, including geographical concepts. In convincing and lucid prose, ten Grotenhuis chronicles an intermingling of visual, doctrinal, ritual, and literary elements in these mandalas that has come to be seen as characteristic of the Japanese religious tradition as a whole. This beautifully illustrated work begins in the first millennium B.C.E. in China with an introduction to the Book of Documents and ends in present-day Japan at the sacred site of Kumano. Ten Grotenhuis focuses on the Diamond and Womb World mandalas of Esoteric Buddhist tradition, on the Taima mandala and other related mandalas from the Pure Land Buddhist tradition, and on mandalas associated with the kami-worshipping sites of Kasuga and Kumano. She identifies specific sacred places in Japan with sacred places in India and with Buddhist cosmic diagrams. Through these identifications, the realm of the buddhas is identified with the realms of the kami and of human beings, and Japanese geographical areas are identified with Buddhist sacred geography. Explaining why certain fundamental Japanese mandalas look the way they do and how certain visual forms came to embody the sacred, ten Grotenhuis presents works that show a complex mixture of Indian Buddhist elements, pre-Buddhist Chinese elements, Chinese Buddhist elements, and indigenous Japanese elements.

The God Particle as it is called, or technically, the Higg''s boson, is discovered in CERNS Large Hadron Collider, in 2012. The next breakthrough comes in 2042, when Quantum Physicists learn how to disintegrate a human being and accelerate his atoms to the speed of light and thereby interact with one or more God Particles in the follow-up machine, the Large Mass Collider. ''Realia'' is the name the author has given to this region of sub-atomia where everything important in the universe may be controlled and which we, as humans can now enter.With the new technology, the Chinese and American governments, each scramble to send an atomonaut into quantum space to learn if the God Particle can provide them with enough power to control the world. The God Bomb is pursued by both sides from opposite ends of the planet by sending entire armies into quantum space in order to take control. At the same time, Kundun Gyaltso, a ten-year-old Tibetan monk, pursues the truth about God''s particles through an amazing new 3-D mandala software he has created and that is eventually downloaded by nearly every computer device on the planet. Since every home and office on the planet are now enjoying the benefits of 3-D Telescreens, the mandalas that the young monk produces are beginning to change the world. He has gotten so good at what he does, the mandalas actually seem more real, than "Reality" to most observers. A common desire is now to follow this young spiritual master anywhere he goes. Even the President of the United States becomes one of his most ardent admirers.The experience of the mandala rocks the world of any audience he entertains until he finally learns how to perform the most important 3-D mandala concert in history. It is a moment that you cannot miss because it is the one defining moment in our civilization, a turning point, a place in time that has influenced all major events around the world today. The greatest physicist in history, Albert Einstein predicted that at some time in the future, we would find the single force in the universe that is the foundation for all other forces. Put another way, Einstein believed that everything in the universe was caused by one force and that everything else was just a slight variation on this theme. Einstein was right, but even his astounding imagination could not foresee that the secret to his Unification Theory would lay in the tiniest object in the universe, the Higg''s boson, or the God Particle. Yet, this is the amazing truth today, part of the greatest scientific discovery of all time. Who will win the race to control the universe? The powers of government that now rule our world? Or will it be the power of peace and love and human kindness? The ending to the story, the most mind-blowing ending in history, will surprise and amaze you. Do not give the ending away to anyone. But, suffice it to say, everybody wins, however, the way that everyone wins is given to us at the most important moment in history. It was a turning point that went the wrong way and today''s chaos and terror around the world is proof of this tragic outcome. However, perhaps we can make a difference even now. Realia is the book that answers the question; Can anyone get a Do-Over? Whether you want one or not, the biggest do-over in history may be found only in ''Realia'' and your participation is requested.BACK COVER MATERIALThe Higg''s boson, or the ''God Particle'', the basic fundamental building block of all the elements we know and predicted to exist over 40 years ago, has now been discovered by the CERN Large Hadron Collider in Geneva Switzerland. The importance of this discovery is greater than the discovery by Galileo that the Earth is surrounded by other planets, or by Newton''s discovery of Gravity, or even greater than Charles Darwin''s theory of Evolution. The importance of this discovery is nothing short of proof that God exists, because God''s Particles are what grants every other particle in the universe, their existence. Since all existence in the universe originates from God''s Particles, and the fate of everything that we know is based upon their work in influencing everything else, then there has to be a God in charge of all these particles. If there is no God, then, by simple logic there would be no need for his particles. Now that we''ve discovered how God works his miracles in our daily lives, it is incumbent upon every living soul on the planet to learn how to live to their highest and best use. This book and the trilogy that follows it, are all part of the ''Realia'', the real way that things work in support of everything else. If you dare to read this book, the author guarantees that nothing will ever be the same.
