Inspired by the "Translations of the Bible" thread: What kinds of religious or spiritual literature other than the Bible (if any) do you have?

My own is limited to this little kids' book called The Amazing Adventures of Hanuman, an edition of with a cover that looks slightly different because it's newer, a few poems by Ovid, Norse Myths by Kevin Crossley-Holland, and a lot of (which very often includes Indian religious literature) and (which also occasionally includes various kinds of religious myths, legends, etc. from all over the world).

How are you defining "religious or spiritual" here? Why does Ovid qualify?

My books are a mile away right now, but from memory I have the Quran, a Passover Haggadah, the Dao De Jing, and (abridged versions of) the Rigveda and the Mahabharata.

If we're counting any story with superhuman characters in it, I have a copy of The Silmarillion... and a lot of other fantasy novels too.

Only thing I can add is Way of the Peaceful Warrior by Dan Millman, which I read about 20 years ago, but still remember in fairly rich detail. It helped me come to my current religious viewpoint of believing in God without believing in (or caring about) the factual accuracy of any particular religion or its scripture. It helped me accept that people who undergo spiritual rebirth do not automatically become sinless selfless superhuman beings, and that someone who has seemingly lapsed ... be it myself or someone else .... does not need to start all over again from a worse position than before.

I forgot to mention that I have and . I also forgot that I have this Taiwanese cartoon version of Zhuang Zi Shuo (with the original Classical Chinese text at the bottom of each page) and two Singaporean Chinese cartoon books about Confucius and I think Jataka tales.

Mythology by Edith Hamilton (mainly Greek, some Roman and Nordic)
Celtic Myths and Legends by Peter Berresford Ellis (Irish, Manx, Scottish, Welsh, Cornish and Breton folktales and mythology)

Not sure if it counts:
Kalevala (1954 Harvard translation by Francis Peabody Magoun)

I just added the Book of Mormon to my personal collection. The infuriating part is that I had to order it online, even though there's an LDS church two blocks from my home, since they don't have it in English.

Currently the Tarka Samgraha is the only original text I have in my possession. I also have Classical Indian Metaphysics by Stephen Phillips. Back home: I have a volume called Early Taoist Texts. From the new religious movements, I have the Laws of Form by George Spencer-Brown. Wish I'd brought that one with me. I also have many, many Qurans, variously translated into many languages, untranslated, unabridged, abridged, and simplified, as if it needed further simplification. You know how those Qurans keep piling up. I don't like them. Like Shakespeare, the Quran was meant to be performed. My mother did her thesis on the Vaishnava Padavali, so we have that, of course. (Take that, cultural separatists!) I remember having a very nice Zen book whose name I'd have to look up. I have Plato's Dialogues, which Neoplatonists counted as religious. What else? Most people would not count this as a sacred text, but I also have the Road to Reality by Penrose, the central text of my personal "religion", so I brought it with me. That's all I can remember.

I could probably just tell you a lot of (the stories from) the Mahabharata from memory.
