A Glimpse on Smrithi
Description
Back of the Book

The author having reproduced stories from the ‘Itihaas’ (Mahabharata and Raamayana) or Puranas’ (ancient legends) or ‘Dharmasastras’ (Smrithi and so on), quotes interesting anecdotes to introduce our culture to the younger generation. Proper guidance and detailed explanations would further enhance the inherent spiritual values of our people. Anyone can read this book to delve deep into the ancient days and appreciate the greatness of our culture.

E T Sankaran Kutty, born in 1937 in Madras, descends from a well-known family of Palghat, Kerala.

He graduated from the University of Madras with a Bachelor’s Degree in Commerce, joined Indian Overseas Bank, Chennai, as an Officer and retired as Assistant General Manager in 1997 after more than three decades of tireless service. To fulfill his spiritual quest and thirst, he started writing on Hinduism after his retirement.

Preface

The scriptures of Sanatana Dharma or Hinduism are of two classes, namely Smrithi and Sruthi. If Sruthi is meant for a select class of people like priests and ‘Bramacharya’ students for recital; Smtithi, is meant for people in the low stage of spiritual evolution who like to either read them by themselves and to others; or hear others reading them. Thereby, their emotional inclinations as well their devotional aspirations are catered to and stirred up by reading the book.

These compositions of the great Rishis are of diverse nature. In these scriptures, the spiritual truths are described in various ways like stories and incidents, dialogues and anecdotes, in a practical way, with a human touch or in a life-like background. Unlike the Sruthi scriptures, the Smrithi scriptures appeal to play significant roles in stirring up their emotions, in activating their intellect and also in energising their actions, in their spiritual march.

Presented in this book, are excerpts from epics like Ramayana and Mahabharata, Bhagavad Gita and the Puranas, which contain values of Dharma, eternal truths and principles of high order. An endeavour to provide young readers of today a touch of the Smrithi scriptures in a capsule form, has been ventured on the hope that they would Paid the book handy for meeting their requirements and eventually help them to ascend to the highest rugs of understanding the spiritual realms.

A Statue was ordered on Dec 22nd and Paid 194.25 including FREE DELIVERY for me as a GIFT for Christmas and they Confirmed that it will be there in 4-5 days but it NEVER arrived till 30th of December and inspite of my various emails they only replied that it is being finished and will be shipped in 24hrs but that was a LIE and no further delivery information was every sent to me. I called and left a message on the phone number listed on their website which is a NY number but no one answered that phone and I left messages but no reply or update on my Statue was sent to me inspite of my daily emails to know the status. I still await this Statue but NO RESPONSIBLE REPLY.
Rita Wason
