Description
About the Author

Swami Vimalananda the author and commentator of several books including the best seller In Indian Culture-Why Do We, is known for her contribution in the field of education, her practical and clear thinking and gripping spiritual talks.

Foreword

This book is dedicated to the great master, Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayanandaji whose life work and teachings will make every Indian and person of Indian origin proud of being the inheritor of a rich and enriching, as well as noble and ennobling culture. The Indian scriptures say that the world is full of opposites. Our own experience too confirms that this world is indeed strange and contradictory. For every viewpoint there is a counter viewpoint and for every person that understands there are many more that do not understand and worst still misunderstand.

Doubts and confusions arise because of incomplete knowledge or when there is conflict between two sources of knowledge; one could be our own mind. Indian scriptures therefore urge us to resolve all conflicts and confusions by learning from an authentic source and testing the knowledge with our own unbiased and complete thinking.

Indian philosophy and way of life (dharma) is followed by many even outside India. The glory of Indian thought culture is that it has stood the test of time because of its capacity to adapt to changing times without losing its beauty, depth and meaning.

The resounding success of the book 'In Indian Culture - Why Do We ' made us realise that there is a huge demamd to know about this fascinating land called India and its mind-boggling variety of beliefs and holistic lifestyle. Unfortunately it is understood by some, but misunderstood by many. This inspired the next book of the series on Indian Culture - Conflicts and Confusions in Indian Culture where certain fundamental and commonly misunderstood concepts of Indian beliefs and life- style are taken up. We urge the reader to read with an open and unbiased mind.

Testimonials
I've just received the shawl and love it already!! Thank you so much,
Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
