Is Kahlil Gibran's work still protected by copyright laws in the US?





I’m thinking specifically of The Prophet, written in 1923 as far as I can tell.


  1. The link below will help, although it appears the main questions are:
    a) was The Prophet originally published only in the US, or also abroad?
    b) did the original publication have a copyright notice?
    As you will notice, if it had been published a year earlier (1922), the laws would be different.

  2. any published work is copyrighted. even after the 95 yrs–if you used any of the writing from his work, you would still have to give him credit for it.

Yoga nidra allows an individual to leave the waking state, move past the dreaming state and into deep sleep while remaining awake or conscious during the whole process. In yoga nidra, there are no dreams to explore. Instead, it is a process of emptying. It purifies the deeper aspect of the human mind by exploring deep impressions or samskaras. This is essential as samskaras drive our karma.
