Description
Back of the Book

The author having reproduced stories from the ‘Itihaas’ (Mahabharata and Raamayana) or Puranas’ (ancient legends) or ‘Dharmasastras’ (Smrithi and so on), quotes interesting anecdotes to introduce our culture to the younger generation. Proper guidance and detailed explanations would further enhance the inherent spiritual values of our people. Anyone can read this book to delve deep into the ancient days and appreciate the greatness of our culture.

E T Sankaran Kutty, born in 1937 in Madras, descends from a well-known family of Palghat, Kerala.

He graduated from the University of Madras with a Bachelor’s Degree in Commerce, joined Indian Overseas Bank, Chennai, as an Officer and retired as Assistant General Manager in 1997 after more than three decades of tireless service. To fulfill his spiritual quest and thirst, he started writing on Hinduism after his retirement.

Preface

The scriptures of Sanatana Dharma or Hinduism are of two classes, namely Smrithi and Sruthi. If Sruthi is meant for a select class of people like priests and ‘Bramacharya’ students for recital; Smtithi, is meant for people in the low stage of spiritual evolution who like to either read them by themselves and to others; or hear others reading them. Thereby, their emotional inclinations as well their devotional aspirations are catered to and stirred up by reading the book.

These compositions of the great Rishis are of diverse nature. In these scriptures, the spiritual truths are described in various ways like stories and incidents, dialogues and anecdotes, in a practical way, with a human touch or in a life-like background. Unlike the Sruthi scriptures, the Smrithi scriptures appeal to play significant roles in stirring up their emotions, in activating their intellect and also in energising their actions, in their spiritual march.

Presented in this book, are excerpts from epics like Ramayana and Mahabharata, Bhagavad Gita and the Puranas, which contain values of Dharma, eternal truths and principles of high order. An endeavour to provide young readers of today a touch of the Smrithi scriptures in a capsule form, has been ventured on the hope that they would Paid the book handy for meeting their requirements and eventually help them to ascend to the highest rugs of understanding the spiritual realms.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
