Back of the Book

This book covers a wide range of concepts that define the very base of Hinduism, the oldest religion of the world. The scriptural meaning of the Vedas and their ethical influence on the society, have made a spiritual impact on the Rishis. This concept has been presented in a lucid fashion with crisp quotations for a better grasp of the scriptures.

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 quests and thirst, he started writing on Hinduism after his retirement.

Preface

Everyone, everywhere desires to be happy in life, always and throughout his life. Without exception all are desirous of reaching the abode of God at the end of their lives.

Different means to this end are adopted, in tune with their mental inclination.

A knowledge about what you are, who you are, what ‘Brahman’s, your relationship with ‘Him’, the spiritual path you may opt to tread to reach ‘Him’, etc. elucidated in our vedic scriptures, have been meaningfully propounded with well reasoned conclusions using some specific Sanskrit words to convey certain concepts clearly.

In the pages of this book, an effort is made to deal with as many vedic concepts like Brahman, Sat Chit Anand, Om Tat Sat, Atma, Prana, Sarira, Anthakarana, Avastha, Kosha, Sakthi, Karma, Guna, Dharma, Maya, Bhakthi, Moksha, Japa, Yoga, Yajna, Rruna, Mahavratas, Prayaschitta, Vairagya, Tyaga, Atmanevadana, etc. more than 60 in all, and presented many pronouncements from Vedas, Upanishads, Ithihasas, Puranas etc. to back them up.

I hope readers would find the concepts comprehensive and will help them find lasting happiness.
