Some Selections From the Scriptures of the World Religions
Some Selections From the Scriptures of the World Religions
Description
From the Introduction

The sublime principles taught by the great religions of the world have always saved mankind from self-destruction whenever they have been understood properly and practised sincerely. If these religions- some of which belong to the prehistoric eras-have survived to this day, it is mainly because of their great bocks in which are recorded these sublime principles revealed to their founders, prophets, messiahs, sages and saints.

How the book or the scripture has saved a religious community can be understood better by analysing the Sanskrit equivalent for the same, viz., 'sastra'. A sastra is that which protects (tranana) if its commands (sasana) are adhered to: sasanat trananac caiva sastramity abhidhiyate.

The book places before the members of the community a great ideal to be striven for. It gives them a code of conduct by following which they can maintain internal peace and harmony. It helps them to resolve their doubts and conflicts by offering them the necessary norms and standards. It is the fountain-head of eternal inspiration for the entire community.

Faith in and devotion to one's own religion does not oblige a man to denigrate other religions or dislike their followers. On the other hand a reverent study of other religions can enhance his faith and devotion to his own religion. After all, all religions teach, ultimately, the fatherhood of God and brotherhood of man thereby obliging man to love his neighbour as himself.

Sri Ramakrishna declared that all religions ultimately lead to one and the same goal. Divergence of the paths does not mean divergence of the goals. Do not all the radii of a circle converge at its centre?

This is the main purpose behind the selections chosen from the great scriptures of the world religions and presented through this booklet. If it generates in the heart of the reader veneration towards those great religions and rouses his curiosity to know more, the compi1er feels rewarded.

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

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.
