About The Book

This updated text gives the fundamental knowledge of idols and their importance during worship and also its idol immersion based problems which have direct affect on the quality of natural water. Book has enough informative experimental data in each chapter. In this book both theoretical and practical aspects are well defined and explained as per guideline of Sanatan Dharm. The book has explained theosophical values of idol worship in uplifment of human beings. Manner of idols worship and their immersion as per Vaidic/Sanskrit literature are not harmful. Modern concept based idol immersion in natural water is more dangerous. Development of temporary pond near the banks of Ganga or other river basis is not a solution of the problem; its negative effect is well documented in this book. After immersion, burning of idols are very harmful which is not allowed by Sanatan Dharm and has a negative impact on idol worshiper and public conviction. The author does not suggest stopping idol worship. He wishes that idol making should be followed on Sanatan concepts as well describe in Sanskrit literature and there should be flow of river water during immersion periods which can be maintained at administrative authorities' level because they resolve water pollution and environmental issues.

Without hesitation, the book has proven a boom for idol worship of Sanatan tradition (Parampara); judiciary judgments for designing and implementing the idol immersion for control of water pollution and keeping of Sanatanee' (Hinduism concepts) values.

Idol worship is scientifically fruitful for accumulation of eternal energy to new creation as per description of Sanskrit literature, its modernisation process is dangerous because it does not fulfil the purpose of worship and is not environmentally safe.

Sanatan Dharm cannot be described in words, which never confined to any boundary and never kept stagnant. It comprises of the oldest scriptures of the world, which have been supervising and nurturing people's sense since ages, and which would continue to do so till the presence of universe and mankind, through their ever evolving original philosophies.

Unfortunately, there are some people who criticise certain puja associated with Hinduism on the basis of their little knowledge, for example Murti Puja (Idol worship) is heavily criticised. They quote incomplete verses from Vedas, Upanishads to prove their point.

Idol worship is one of the core concepts of Sanatan tradition. The literal meaning of Idol is manifestation and concrete form of particular God image. The devotee worships the deity who is requested to reside in the Vigraha for the duration of worship. Idol is usually concrete shape, having particular features attributed to the God form.
