Description
Preface

It gives us great pleasure to bring out second Edition of Hinduism at a Glance. The original print of 1987 had very small lettering and readers, especially elderly ones, experienced great hardship while reading. The present Edition has bigger lettering to facilitate easy readability. Besides diacritical marks have been given in all the non-English words to assist correct pronunciation.

The book, divided into three sections, contains comprehensive essays on the Bhagavad Gita in the first part, Upanisads in the second part and a few general essays in the third. The readers can get the elementary idea as well as the indepth philosophy of Vedanta. The contributors are either Gurudev's disciples or devotees or his co-workers, who have expressed the complicated concepts in simple language, easily comprehensible to an average reader.

A brief introduction of writers precedes their reflections. A key to the transliteration and pronunciation has, also, been added in the beginning of the book.

We do hope sincere seekers will find the book illuminating.

Testimonials
Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
Mary, Australia
Love your website and the emails

Indira, USA
Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt
GABRIEL-FREDERIC Daniel
Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
Prof Madhulika, USA

Thank you so much for your wonderful store and wonderful service. A Naga Kanya stat arrived yesterday. The sculpture was very well packaged, and it is very beautiful. I am very very happy with the statue and very grateful to your company for providing access to such lovely works of art. Thank you for providing truly beautiful objects and for providing great service. All the very best to you,
Jigme, Canada
Thank you! You guys saved me... there were no other options online for the book I purchased today that I needed for a specific course. So thank you for carrying the book and the easy purchase process. I look forward to receiving the books.
