Description
About the author

All the spiritual texts of Dr. Jayant Balaji Athavale deal with the doctrine and practice of Spirituality comprehensively. The Topics covered by them are substantiated with their ow3n experiences and therefore these texts inspire even a layman to undertake spiritual practice. Similarly, they strengthen faith in those on path of spiritual endeavor, seeker and the devotee, thereby steadying their steps on the path of Righteousness.

Spiritual texts co-authored by Dr. Jayant with His life partner Dr. Kunda have been translated in many languages. Pleased with their seva (Spiritual service) done with humility and devotion, their guru merged in the Supreme, Srimat Sadguru Bhaktaraj Maharaj lavishly bestowed upon them the Supreme Divine Knowledge and Devotion. As a benevolent result, Dr. Jayant founded the ‘Sanatan effectively working toward spread of Spirituality’s eternal, true Knowledge in scientific terminology.

 

Preface

Dharma preaches that the purpose of human birth is God-realization. The religious scriptures therefore impart guidance on how to undertake spiritual practice so as to be able to get closer to God in every incident of life, right from birth till death. Life span from birth till marriage completes one cycle. A similar cycle is completed from the birth of a son/daughter to his/her marriage. This goes on generations after generations. This Holy text imparts knowledge on what sanskars should be performed to get closer to God in the sixteen rituals in life from conception to marriage. These sanskars later help in improving spiritual practice information on performing the sanskars is taken from reference books listed at the end of this Holy text. The focus of this Holy text is to explain the spiritual reason why a particular action should be performed in a particular manner, instead of merely discussing at length every action in the performance of sanskars. This will help us understand the science underlying the sanskars. The details of rituals may differ from class to class, caste to caste, sub-caste to sub-caste etc.; but that will not hinder us from realizing the true science underlying the rituals.

Some include the post-death sanskars also in the sixteen sanskars. Information on post-death sanskars is given in Part1. Primary level information on science of Spirituality-Vol.61. Death and Post-Death Rities1, and Part3. Science of Spirituality for Undergraduates-Vol.61. Death and Post-Death Rites 2 and in the Booklet ‘Death and Post-Death Rites’

We pray at the Holy feet of Sri Guru that in today’s times dominated by the intellect let all understand the science underlying the sanskars and rituals, perform them accordingly and try to get closer to God.-Publisher.

(Combined preface for all the volumes on the series of ‘Science of Spirituality’ Part 1 and Part 2 is given in ‘Part 1. Primary level information on Science of Spirituality-Vol.1 Righteousness’.)

Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.
