Book Description

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.
