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.

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.
