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

I have purchased many books from your company. Your packaging is excellent, service is great and attention is prompt. Please maintain this quality for this order also!
Raghavan, USA
My order arrived today with plenty of time to spare. Everything is gorgeous, packing excellent.
Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
Chitra, United Kingdom
