Description
About The Book

Hinduism which originated in this land as Sanatana Dharma nearly 4000 years ago in the Vedic period has always been a comprehensive socio-religious culture of the people. Its followers worship God in any of His many forms and names. Its emphasis has been on performance of duties according to one’s station in life and natural endowments hereby promoting peace and harmony among the people and their prosperity. Its sacred texts which have come down from ancient times are still being taught to Brahmin youth and recited during temple rituals and religious ceremonies. These enduring features of Hinduism are discussed in sixteen concise narratives in this book.

 

Preface

Hinduism is the most ancient religion of the world, its origin going as far back as 4000 BC when the Vedas were compiled. From the beginning it was Sanantan Dharma that was regulating not only religious life but also the duties and conduct of the individuals as well as the rulers. Thus besides beliefs in God, Dharma was accorded the highest place. The other characteristics of Hinduism are freedom to worship God in many names and forms, and tolerant attitude towards other’s beliefs. In this respect it has always been different from the monolithic religions of later origin which attribute exclusive authenticity to a single Messenger of God and a single Holy Book. The liberalism of Hinduism has given it strength and vitality to maintain its hold on the minds of the people through the ages.

This book is intended to acquaint the younger generation with theses unique aspects of Hinduism, and may also be of interest to general readers who desire to learn more about their religion.

I am thankful to Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan for bringing out this book as a Bhavan’s publication.

Testimonials
Thanks again Exotic India! Always perfect! Great books, India's wisdom golden peak of knowledge!!!
Fotis, Greece
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
Steven, USA
