Vedanta : A Simple Introduction
Vedanta : A Simple Introduction
Description
Publisher's Note

In recent times the universal philosophy of Vedanta has generated worldwide interest and a desire to know more about this philosophy and its practice. In a world of blurring social and intellectual boundaries, Vedanta holds hope for a healthy society that transcends geographical, cultural, and religious differences..

This book is an attempt to portray the essential features of Vedanta without venturing into its philosophical intricacies. This difficult task has been achieved by Pravrajika Vrajaprana, a nun from the Sarada Convent, Santa Barbara, USA, in her clear and concise account of the universal principles of Vedanta.

This volume was originally published by Vedanta Press, Hollywood, in 1999. We are grateful to them for having given us permission to publish it in the Indian subcontinent. We have made some changes in this book to suit the Indian readers.

Nowadays we need more emphasis put on harmony like that found in Vedanta. We believe that this book will inspire its readers to create a harmonious society free from divisiveness of any kind.

Back of the Book

Vedanta is a distillation of everything that is clearest wisest and most compelling in the Hindu religious tradition.

And because one of Hinduism’s core beliefs is in the validity of all paths to God Vedanta itself holds up a kind of mirror to every other religion as well allowing us to see what is clearest wisest and most compelling there too.

I hope this succinct and immensely readable overview will find a wide, wide audience.

Testimonials

Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
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.

Another three books arrived during the last weeks, all of them diligently packed. Excellent reading for the the quieter days at the end of the year. Greetings to Vipin K. and his team.

Your products are uncommon yet have advanced my knowledge and devotion to Sanatana Dharma. Also, they are reasonably priced and ship quickly. Thank you for all you do.

Thank you kindly for the Cobra Ganesha from Mahabalipuram. The sculpture is exquisite quality and the service is excellent. I would not hesitate to order again or refer people to your business. Thanks again.

The variety, the quality and the very helpful price range of your huge stock means that every year I find a few new statues to add to our meditation room--and I always pick up a few new books and cds whenever I visit! keep up the good work!
