"Evolution is better than Revolution. New Thought Library's New Thought Archives encompass a full range of New Thought from Abrahamic to Vedic. New Thought literature reflects the ongoing evolution of human thought. New Thought's unique inclusion of science, art and philosophy presents a dramatic contrast with the magical thinking of decadent religions that promulgate supersticions standing in the way of progress to shared peace and prosperity." ~ Avalon de Rossett

The theories of the eminent Japanese philosopher Yoritomo-Tashi have resulted in the formation of another school of philosophy. Therefore, it is with the greatest pleasure that I undertake to comment on the maxims of this philosopher, while applying them to modern life

Yoritomo-Tashi expresses himself in a direct style, and he has a deep insight into the human soul, which enables him to define its various states. He possesses also this advantage over many other philosophers—he is not prosy, nor depressing. His teachings are illustrated by parables in which the poetry of the Par East stands out in vivid coloring, like a Japanese print.

Links to Yoritomo-Tashi's Works:

Yoritomo-Tashi is superior to many thinkers in the fact that he is not satisfied with merely pointing out an evil; he analyzes its causes, and, in regard to mental defects, he indicates the cure.

I derived great pleasure from my first visit to the little provincial museum in which Yoritomo-Tashi's wonderful manuscripts repose. And this pleasure was renewed a year later. As in the tale of "The Sleeping Beauty in the "Woods," the custodian of this museum seemed to have been asleep ever since the day I called. He was surrounded by stuffed animals posed in attitudes suggesting their habits, and he looked scarcely more alive than they. The loud-ticking clock at one end of the room was the only sign of life in this abode of silence and oblivion.

It was with a feeling of awe that I entered the small manuscript room, where, if it had not been for the vigilance of the custodian's wife, I could have traced the footprints I had made on my previous visit, for no one had been there to efface them since the preceding year. At least this is what the good man told me, as he turned pages covered with the writings of my friend, Commander B , who had translated Yoritomo's philosophy.
