The Hindu Philosophy of Conduct (Vol III)
The Hindu Philosophy of Conduct (Vol III)
Description
From the Jacket

The Hindu Philosophy of Conduct, lectures on the Bhagavadgita brings out clearly in a distinctive style and in a cogent manner translations and all explanations wherever required in a scientific temper with a modern outlook to widen the Indian thought with a fresh outlook merging the old thoughts of the East with the new ones of the West.

Gita is recognized as the scriptural authority and all its religious, moral instructions are to be taken as the mandate of God for the betterment, welfare, and progress of the human community, Sri Krsna explains with a strikingly catholic approach and upholds the doctrine of human conduct of Arjuna.

It is difficult to get salvation by studying all the scriptures. Sri Krsna explains the path of Karma and Jnama yogas according to their particular sphere of life and points out that pure bhakti to the Lord guided by duty with non-attachment will be ultimate means of salvation. The chief doctrine of the Bhagavad-Gita is Karmanyevadhikarasthe M.A. Phalesu Kadacana.

Testimonials
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 !
