Description
Preface

In this modern world and age, we are bombarded from all quarters by information on various materialistic products. Such is their influence on our lives that we have allowed ourselves to get diverted from our age-old traditions and rituals. Our mindscape is totally taken up with acquiring the latest gadgets, acquiring a bigger house, a bigger car, and so on and so forth. There is no end to our craving. The new generation in the hi-tech world has forgotten our heritage and culture, and prefers to chase happiness in an imaginary world where prosperity and bliss can never co-exist peacefully. We only have to look around to see how true this is. Modern lifestyle must be enriched by our age-old traditions in order to make life successful and full of joy. All our traditions are based on the dedicated research of the great sages of our country; it’s time we revived these in the light of modern science and apply the same for the welfare of mankind.

The new generation will, of course, find the practical and realistic aspects of traditions and mores better suited to their thinking and lifestyle. They need to understand that ancient customs and ways of life are also realistic; it’s only that people are not aware of it. Let’s take a very simple example: our gods and goddesses. We don’t know why we should believe in them, we don’t know the right manner of worshipping them, or the significance of gods and goddesses. We are afraid of the planets, but here, too, we don’t know why. We follow many rituals and traditions in our lives, but we do so blindly.

Then again, most of us are guilty of remembering God when the going gets tough for us; it is then that we go to a temple and fervently pray for an improvement in our financial or health condition! But God is not to be sought at distress, but should be a part of our daily life. We have all come across people who make a mockery of both our gods and traditions (like worshipping the tulsi, or a stone), and we often fail to give a logical answer… because we don’t know the answer ourselves! As followers of the oldest tradition in the world we should be able to give a suitable reply. Through this book, Dr Puneet Chawla - the Vaastu expert and Vedic scholar and student of Filipino Master Choa Kok Sui, an authority on chakras - is attempting to unearth the facts behind the beliefs and rituals that make up the spiritual aspect of life. To know all the why’s and how’s, everyone should go through this book. We all know that our culture, our heritage is right, but we don’t know how it can enrich our lives. This book provides answers to the plethora of questions that rise in our minds when we are confronted by queries and doubts. So that the next time someone puts forward a question, you’ll be able to use your new-found knowledge well and with pride.

In order to lead a happy and fulfilling life, one must strike a balance between the spiritual and the materialistic life. Traditions that have developed over centuries can never be irrational and we have to immortalize our traditions by linking them to our practical, day-to-day existence. Dr Chawla hopes to popularize Indian traditions both among the young generation of Indians, as well as Indians living abroad.

Carl, UK.
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
