The Gita and The Quran
The Gita and The Quran
Description
Preface
The Bhagavad Gita is the most well known book from the Indian epic, the Mahabharata. The Qur'an (Koran) is the book of Islam, the word of God, the book, which guides the followers of Islam.

The first part of the book outlines the similarities between the two faiths. It concentrates on the common themes. Throughout the text we are enlightened by verses from the various holy writings.

Many great saints, sages, teachers and writers have sought to interpret the themes encompassing the two faiths; Kabir and the Sufi poet, Maulana Rumi, are two of the more famous. Guru Nanak, the founder of Sikhism, looked for a path between the two great religions of the Hindu and the Muslim. He defined a new order, yet this too adhered to the central themes of the two faiths.

A quote from Kabir concerns the disunity of humanity and its adherence to useless dogma. "The entire world is labouring under a great harmful delusion. One swears by the Veda the other by the Qur'an. One speaks of hell, another of heaven. There really is no difference between the two paths."

In the second half of the book the author considers in more depth the basic tenets of the two religious texts. In particular he has chosen verses from the Qur'an that attempt to give the reader a clearer grasp of why Islam is misunderstood. Of course throughout its history there have been those who have sought to reinterpret the Qur'an for their own agendas. This translation helped us to choose for ourselves how the words should be interpreted.

The Gita and the Qur'an is an interesting example of a book, which examines the interrelationship of differing faiths. Written by Pandit Sunderlal and translated by Syed Asadullah, it offers us a side-by-side comparison of Hinduism and Islam. In all religion basic themes of humanity are to the fore, themes, which should unite the world's people and not divide them.

Back of the Book

Two Holy Scriptures, two religious directions, but do they have one common fundamental theme? The Bhagavad Gita is probably the most famous and much-loved book of the great Hindu epics. The Qur'an (Koran) is 'the book of the believers' of Islam. Separated by land and time, these two religions still have much in common.

What are the fundamental ideas of the Gita and the Qur'an?

How does each of the great teachings seek to unlock a moral code for the living?

"We need a religions outlook which shall weld us into a single brotherhood, nation, family….a creed that every avatar, prophet, saint, sadhu, fakir has preached…"

This book has an unusual goal, one that offers to mediate between apparently opposing viewpoints. It makes a strongly defined attempt to unite the two ideas. It tries to clarify the amazing degree of common ground, and the factors that bring the two concepts together, to embrace each other for the benefit of mankind.

Hello, Just a short feedback on your new website layout: the old one was better than most of what you come across on the www, but you've managed to make it even better. I very much like the new look of the book pages and 'my gallery' pages. Thanks again for offering me a look inside the books. It's a big help for finding out if it's really what I want. Everything is perfect: the presentation of the items, your way of handling the orders, and the fast and always diligently packed parcels. Thanks to all at Exotic India, Walter

Exotic India is a fine organization to do business with. I have had the best trading experience and the very best customer service. The communication I have had with Vipin K. is of the highest quality; my questions and requests were quickly and professionally answered and fulfilled. A special thanks to the artist Kailash Raj for the beautiful art he produces; I have certainly been enriched by the way his art exemplifies the stories they tell. Many Thanks to all concerned.

An excellent website, as always. I do not even mention its content, which is beautiful beyond words, but I am merely referring to the great functionality and optimal design of your website. Links always work, the information is accurate and complete, images are very clear, including scanned content of your books. A pleasure to purchase from you.
Oreste, USA
I just wanted to extend my profound thanks to you for expediting my order. It was so well packaged and all import processes taken care of so the beautiful statue arrived in fabulous condition. It looks truly wonderful and I am so happy to have Lord Ganesh take pride of place in my home. Thank you again for your superb service. Best regards
