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.

Kileigh

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
