UPANISHADS: For The Modern World
UPANISHADS: For The Modern World
Description
From the Jacket:

In this book, Dr. Pillai relates the vision of the Upanishads to the spiritual needs of the 21st century. The stories of the Upanishads are retold to make them intelligible to the modern world. The outcome is a rational worldview that reveals the undeniable presence of an interactive energy in all forms of life.

The Upanishads contain the essence of existential wisdom conceived by oriental mystics about 3,000 years ago. They lead us to the logical inference that the spark of universal energy embedded in us motivates all our worldly deeds and even inspires the spiritual quest to unravel the unknown. The Upanishads give us clear-cut answers to all ultimate questions that science fails to elucidate.

The author suggests that the Upanishads can mitigate excessive violence, unfounded fears, and chronic anxieties that torment the modern mind. The book contains the latest scientific ideas on the mind and it offers effective spiritual solutions to remove undesirable aggressive tendencies. The existential wisdom explained here can hopefully create a compassionate mindset that we sadly miss in the egocentric era of information technology.

About the Author:

Dr. Pillai is a multifaceted personality with degrees in physics, chemistry, psychology, and economics. His previous book entitled, "Mystic Awareness for Modern Mind" has been widely acclaimed as a "pathfinder to an enriched existence". He has been conducting interactive sessions on Stress Management and spiritual awareness centers to restore the moral values that are neglected in our relentless pursuit of material pleasures. This book is primarily addressed to the intelligent youth seeking a rational mode of spirituality that conforms to the advanced scientific knowledge of reality. Sale proceeds of this book will support the rehabilitation of AIDS Victims.

Experts Review:

In this book Dr. Pillai has carefully brought out twelve chapters with two thought provoking epilogues. It is hoped that this book will be received and read with interest by the public.

- His Holiness Sri Sankaracharya Swamigal Sri Kanchi Kamakoti Peetham

An interesting feature of the book is that the author uses dialogues as a route to unfold the vision of the Upanishads to the modern reader. It is an absorbing analysis of the wisdom of humanity accumulated over time through scientific and speculative means and the reader should have the patience and mental make-up to comprehend it. I compliment Dr. Pillai for presenting a masterly study of a highly complex theme and commend it to the inquisitive explorers of knowledge interested in knowing more about the meaning and purpose of life.

Hello, Just a short feedback on your new website layout: the old one was better than most of what you come across on the www, but you've managed to make it even better. I very much like the new look of the book pages and 'my gallery' pages. Thanks again for offering me a look inside the books. It's a big help for finding out if it's really what I want. Everything is perfect: the presentation of the items, your way of handling the orders, and the fast and always diligently packed parcels. Thanks to all at Exotic India, Walter

Exotic India is a fine organization to do business with. I have had the best trading experience and the very best customer service. The communication I have had with Vipin K. is of the highest quality; my questions and requests were quickly and professionally answered and fulfilled. A special thanks to the artist Kailash Raj for the beautiful art he produces; I have certainly been enriched by the way his art exemplifies the stories they tell. Many Thanks to all concerned.

An excellent website, as always. I do not even mention its content, which is beautiful beyond words, but I am merely referring to the great functionality and optimal design of your website. Links always work, the information is accurate and complete, images are very clear, including scanned content of your books. A pleasure to purchase from you.
Oreste, USA
I just wanted to extend my profound thanks to you for expediting my order. It was so well packaged and all import processes taken care of so the beautiful statue arrived in fabulous condition. It looks truly wonderful and I am so happy to have Lord Ganesh take pride of place in my home. Thank you again for your superb service. Best regards
