The Hindu Way of Awakening: Its Revelation, Its Symbols
The Hindu Way of Awakening: Its Revelation, Its Symbols
Description

From the Jacket:

"The Hindu Way of Awakening…provides a key to Hindu symbolism and its deep implications that makes it come alive with universal meaning." - David Frawley (Vamadeva Shastri), President, American Vedic Institute, author of Ayurvedic Healing.

Hinduism, as it comes across in this book, is a robust, joyful religion, amazingly in step with the most advanced thinking of modern times, in love with life, deeply human as well as humane, delightfully aware of your personal life's needs - or so it seems, for the teaching in this book is no abstraction : It is down-to-earth and pressingly immediate. And yet, it addresses issues that are as eternal as time itself! It takes you where you right now in your life, and places you in the loftiest possible context. What is God ? it asks : "Think of God as the highest potential you can imagine for yourself."

This book gives hope-for each one of us, for life, for the future. It is, as the subtitle claims, an essential view of religion; it points to that essence of eternal truth that animates every great religion in the world. The following is from the last chapter, titled "Unity in diversity":

The essential truth in all religion, like the central point of a circle, is one. The path inward to that center is the Way of Awakening in every religion. The Ways of Belief are like lines radiating outward from that center. No two of these lines are parallel; each one radiates out in a different direction. The longer these lines, moreover, the more widely separated they become from one another. The circle is a necessary concept for understanding the universe. And there would be no circle, and no center, were there but one straight line.

I have purchased many books from your company. Your packaging is excellent, service is great and attention is prompt. Please maintain this quality for this order also!
Raghavan, USA
My order arrived today with plenty of time to spare. Everything is gorgeous, packing excellent.
Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
Chitra, United Kingdom
