Dr. Laj Utreja, USA
Founder, Institute of Spiritual Healing
Ayur-Living: a way of life to total health and happiness in harmony with the environment
Who Are We? Is there rebirth? How do we reappear? Do we have a choice in destiny? We live in denial about death as if it would never happen to us. Yet it is the ultimate truth of life. But just as death is certain, so is life after death. Reincarnation is as real as we witness children being born and the others are dying. ‘Who are we?’ takes a provocative look at the Science of Reincarnation.
What Is Our Origin?
What is the origin of this all? Does God have a form? Is our origin both, without and with form? Are there consequences of our actions, or we just go away unchecked in life? We wonder about this facet of life especially when we witness disparities in life: some people getting away with murder and the others being imprisoned for doing good deeds; This book takes a critical look at the least understood ‘cause and effect’ principle called the Law of Karma. These books are available at Amazon.com, AuthorHouse.com and can be ordered through Barnes and Noble bookstores.

J.D. Terrence Edward Paupp, USA
THE FUTURE OF GLOBAL RELATIONS:
CRUMBLING WALLS, RISING REGIONS(2009)
This book centers on two intertwined themes: (a) the collapse of US global hegemony and (b) the rise of a multi-centric world of regional powers: China, Africa, Latin America, India, Middle East, European Union and Russia.The ascendancy of these regional powers means that humanity has reached a historical turning point that signals the incapacity of empire-building, thereby bringing to an end the search for global dominance by one nation over the affairs of all other nations. These centers will continue to mature under the ideology of “regionalism” and though the long historical process of “regionalization.”In this evolution, humanity will soon have the capacity to embark on taking the necessary and essential steps toward a more harmonious world.
Terrence E. Paupp is a Senior Research Fellow at the Council on Hemispheric Affairs (COHA), Washington, DC.He is currently serving as Vice-president of North America for the IAEWP.His previous book Exodus from Empire (2007) is presented on his webpage: http://www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=254.

Ph.D. Edward Soroko, Belarus
Gold Section, Self-organizing Processes and Systems Evolution:
Introduction in the General Theory of Harmony of Systems (2006)
Dominating in sciences Cartesian method of analysis of a complicated unit by rotting it into simple parts is known as a principle of destruction. Can we investigate things without destroying them? Then we need methodology of synthesis, the theory of integral measurement of a system as ensemble, knowledge of laws of measure of harmony and harmony of measures, their invariants.
Then it is possible to solve a problem of qualifying things of complex origin: composites, food stuffs, drugs; precisely show the border of norm andpathology in a human organism and so forth. Such constructive scientific methodology is a subject of Dr. Soroko book. A new law: “Law of Structural Harmony of Systems” (1984) has the name of this scientist. Today the 3d edition of this book is being issued by the Publishing House in Moscow. The author has considerably expanded the former text and enriched it with new ideas.Any sponsor offer in support of its publication would be accepted gratefully.
