Description

About the Book

This book deals with the ideals and Elements of Vedanta and the exposition of Vedanta symbology by taking recourse to the stories and illustrations drawn from the Epics, Puranas and Classics. The principal aim which runs throughout-from the short story of Suka's advent to the long life-tale of Vamadeva and other miscellaneous stories-is the realization of Self, the Knowledge of the Atman, the elaboration and impression of the sublime truth taught by all religions and sages of antiquity, lord Srikrsna and Jesus Christ. 

The author has delved deep into the subjects of great controversy such as the concepts of Atman, Karma-yoga, Bhakti, Virtue and Sin and has cleared the intricacies of the subject-mater in as simple, homely and interesting style as possible. the variety of pabulum presented with the splendid linguistic and literary flourish, it is hoped, will be found pleasant and delicious both by the young and advanced readers.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
