16 Hindu Samskars (From before the birth till Death and even after Death- with Ritual and Pujan Vidhi
Description
Preface
This Book on Samskars, particularly Sixteen Samskars, was planed originally by Shri Ram Avtar Gupta, Chairman of Pustak Mahal.

It is a great service to human being, specially the modern Indians, and a laudable effort to bring forth the most essential things in life in order to create a cultured and refined society he is doing with is Hindoology Books.

If man becomes sensitive enough to realize the value of being cultured as human being by not simply changing dress, language, formal behaviour and amenities but by becoming religious, spiritual and diligent and by leading a life free from fears and inhibitions then all the honest and sincere efforts of the Chairman and the author will be amply rewarded.

In this book, you will find all the Samskars as I have left nothing out. In other words, I have incorporated everything related to Samskars that I have ever heard of or read about. I have incorporated the ways and means of performing all such Samskars and of worshipping various gods and goddesses in a separate section. It is the most essential part of the Samskars. Without the Poojan Vidhi the book would have been incomplete.

Nowadays, people are not aware of the Samskars. They are only living Artha (wealth) and Kama (desire). So, they are unhappy, depressed and live under fear. Only the Samskars will make them live a complete and blissful life by including Dharma (righteousness) and Moksha (liberation) in their life. The Samskars can chart the path and give them inner strength to follow the path of righteousness that will eventually lead a man to bliss and beatitude.

Only a has been taken from scriptural transliteration for long ‘a’ sound which is otherwise impossible to write in the Roman script. Everything else is written in the same ways as given in government papers, magazines, newspapers and general books. Most of the longer compound words have been separated in shorter simple words. It will help the readers to read the Mantras and Shlokas quoted in the book.

Back of The Book
Samskars make living easier, better and fuller, if performed as they should, with right earnestness. Lord Sri Krishna declared in the Gita: “That person easily succeeds in both the physical and spiritual realm (worlds) whose Samskars have been duly completed and that has achieved control senses”.

The book ‘16 Hindu Samskars’ incorporates all the Samskars that make a person refined and cultured, to grow from inside and to enable one to lead a pious, complete, healthy, happy, pleasant and prosperous life. If all the Samskars are performed and the patterns and rules obeyed than life of a person would be worth citizen able to make the earth a better place for all living beings and to ensure continuity of life.

Read ’16 Hindu Samskars’, learn about them and be ‘Samskari’.

Prof. Shrikant Prasoon is a reader, teacher, thinker, poet and above all, a humanist. The more he reads and thinks, the more he writes on varied topics, but with one aim ‘to show man the need of Nature and natural life’. He believes that all religions parts of one basic religion called Humanism; and all the systems are an outcome of the greatest celestial system, which is devised and regulated by the Unseen and Unknown Creator.

A retired Professor of English, Prof. Prasoon writes in Hindi with equal ease and also in Samskrit. His recent books are Knowing Buddha; KnowingGuru Nanak; Indian Scriptures; Panch Mahabhuta Tatwa and Sharira; Chanakya; Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose; Absorbing Buddha; Knowing Kabir and Hinduism Clarified and Simplified.

Testimonials

Hello Vipin K., thanks a lot for replacing the 4th volume of the Srimad Bhagavatam and sending me a faultless copy of the book so fast. The faulty pagination (missing and mixed up pages) is due to the bookbinding, of course, you are not to blame. Your customer service is excellent. And as your selection of books is extraordinary, I'm already looking forward to the next books that will reach me, perfectly packed and in best condition as always. ;-)
Walter
I really found this site to be very well designed, and the number of items amazing. From my careful inspection of the high resolution photos, the quality of work appears to be outstanding.
Sanjay, USA
The statue was delivered today. It is exceedingly beautiful. My thanks to the creator of the statue for such a lovely idol and to yourselves for the great service.
Shashi
I'm so proud of your Company, it's so rare to have a good service after sales.... I will recommend you to all my friends.
Colette, Canada
I am a repeat customer of your store. I have bought several items from you and like the quality and service. Please keep up the good work of providing Puranas and Vedas.
Raghavan, USA
This is a beautiful website - and very customer friendly - easy to find your way around.
Sonia, UK.
Fantastic service! Delivery in Italy in two days!
Francesca Verna
Your custom service is great, especially Vipin. Vipin helped me locate a lost package. that was so nice!!!! I love this company. I love the cotton skirts with ruffle on the bottom. I also love how that when we place items in the shopping cart, the computer system allows them to remain in the cart until we are ready to purchase them. They don't disappear like with other on-line stores shopping cart system. Your the Best!!!
Heather Davis, USA
A true treasure vault of Bharatiya samskruti knowledge books! Thanks for this service.
Shashikant, USA
Very nice website, easy to use. Your one of the few Indian website that have an extensive collection of CD's that will ship to America.I think Indian website should expand themselves into the global community China sure has. China's market growth had to do with supply and demand. The same thing could happen to India, you just have to open the doors of India and let it happen. At least you seem to be doing that.
