Why Man Needs God
Why Man Needs God
Description
Publisher's Note

'Why Man Needs God' by Swami Budhananda was first published in 1983. it was well received by everyone and within a short time all copies were sold.

In fact, this title was the fourth publication under 'Sadhana Series of Small Books on Great Themes.' Due to the sudden passing away of the author, other titles could not be published though there was constant demand for the same.

We however, humbly, present to our earnest readers the first reprint of this book-let which has been so far delayed due to other commitments.

Our experience bears it out that the majority of the good-hearted young generation is keen to learn about essential religion. These youngsters are eager to be taught the applied aspects of authentic religion so that they may take firm steps towards self-development. They have, however, no patience for the set paces of understanding religion nor for what they think 'non-essentials', for they are always in a hurry to take; the bus, so to say. And they are not overtly interested in god, either negatively or positively. They want to know whether God is or is not. If He be, then, how does it matte to 'me'?

Though a most ancient question, 'Why Man Needs god' is often asked by uncommitted good-hearted young people all over the world. Though the question is an ancient one, the answer has to accord with the habits of thought, aspiration and life-style of young people.

If anyone can be helped to see the meaning of needing God, his life will have opened up the depths and new dimensions to his being. This will bring new challenges, to be sure Surer than that, this will unlock the springs of strength within and brighten the prospects of self-fulfilment.

Back of the Book

"When God is realized, the world never appears empty", says Sri Ramakrishna. Whoever seeks to escape ;emptiness of the life must learn to need God; the earlier the better.

All always packed with care, delivered in a timely, no hassle fashion. Your business is very trustworthy and I am so glad to have when I need to look for something.

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

Thanks to all the staff at Exotic Art for helping me acquire these wonderful books from the holy land of Bharata Varsha. Happy new year to you all and all glories to Sri Krsna, peace...

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.
W. J. Barnett, USA
My beautiful shawl arrived today. Thank you so much for this lovely shawl. Really, it is nicer than the photograph. I hope you and yours have a very Happy New Year and much prosperity in the New Year. With gratitude
Tom Anderson, Canada
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
