About The Book

TO The Reader

Hinduism appears to be a very complex religion. Whether it means all things to all men or insurutable to everyone, it has successfully survived even to this day. This small book is an attempt at making it a little less complicated a little more intelligible, to the layman and a little simpler to adopt or follow.

There are already quite a few books on Hinduism published not only by the Ramakrishna Order but also by others. However one more book on the subject written from another angle will not at least create more confusion even if it does not throw more light

If the reader finds that it rather has some chinks let us hope that these very same chinks may also let in some light on a few hitherto little-known aspects.

Let us wait and see

Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa Deva On Hinduism

This Sanatana Dharma the Eternal Religion declared by the rishis, will alone endure.

The Eternal religion the religion if the rishis had been in existence from time out of mind and will exist eternally. There exist in this Sanatana Dharma all form and worship of the Impersonal Deity as well. It contains all paths -the path of knowledge the path of devotion and so o. other forms of religion, the modern cults will remain for a few days and than disappear.

The Hindu Religion alone is the Sanatana Dharma… The Hindu Religion has always existed and will always exist.

Thus Spake Vivekananda

Mind you, we have no quarrel with any religion in the world. We have each our Ishta. But when we see a man coming can saying. This is the only way," and trying to force it on us in India, we have a word to say: we laugh at them. For such people who want to destroy their brothers because they seem to follow a different path towards God- for them to talk of love is absurd. Their love does not count for much. How can they preach of love who cannot forbear another man to follow a different path from their own? If that is love, what is hatred (III. 131-32)

You have withstood the shocks of centuries simply because you took great care of it yet sacrificed everything else for it. Your forefathers underwent everything boldly even death itself but preserved their religion. Temple after was broken down by the foreign conqueror, but no sooner had the wave passed than the spire of the temple rose up again. Some of these old temples of Southern India, and those like Somanath of Gujarat will teach you volumes of wisdom will give you a keener insight into the history of the race than any amount of books. Marks how these temples bear the marks of hundred attacks and a hundred regenerations continually destroyed and continually springing up out of the ruins rejuvenated and strong as ever(III 289)

Mark me then and than alone you are a Hindu when the very name sends through you a galvanic shock of strength. Then and then alone you are a Hindu when every man who bears the name from any country speaking our language or any other language becomes at once the nearest and the dearest to you. T

Testimonials

Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.

Another three books arrived during the last weeks, all of them diligently packed. Excellent reading for the the quieter days at the end of the year. Greetings to Vipin K. and his team.
Walter
Your products are uncommon yet have advanced my knowledge and devotion to Sanatana Dharma. Also, they are reasonably priced and ship quickly. Thank you for all you do.
Gregory, USA
Thank you kindly for the Cobra Ganesha from Mahabalipuram. The sculpture is exquisite quality and the service is excellent. I would not hesitate to order again or refer people to your business. Thanks again.
Shankar, UK
The variety, the quality and the very helpful price range of your huge stock means that every year I find a few new statues to add to our meditation room--and I always pick up a few new books and cds whenever I visit! keep up the good work!
