About the Book

 

The compassion for others makes one a great mall. The books of the wisdom say that the trees bear fruit for others, the rivers carry water for others, similarly the great souls are born for the benefit of others and to redeem the mankind.

 

This book treasures the lire stories of three such great souls who delivered the contemporary societies from social evil and the religious tyrannies to show each a new path that led to a new world of understanding, love and compassion.

 

Mahavira gave a wider meaning to non-violence. Gautam Buddha gave the message of love, peace and campassion. Guru Nanak Dev fought against religious exploitation of masses through rituals and blind faiths. He preached the equality of all human beings. They were true messiahs of the mankind.

 

Foreword

 

Holy men are ordinary looking persons but what is extraordinary about them is that their minds and the souls are linked up with the Power Supreme. They show all the divine signs described in the scriptures. They give the people courage to break outdated customs and the traditions besides rejecting the blind faiths. They show a new path to the society.

 

Vardhmana accepted non-violence as his creed and preached the same. Through hard penance he defeated the enemies within that make one a devil and he came to be known as Mahavir (The great valiant). He was 24th and the last Tirthankar of Jain faith.

 

Siddhartha saw the meaninglessness of the material world where nothing lasted for ever or for long. So, the man deceives himself with carnal pleasures and lives amid untruths. He renounced princely life and went in search of the truth. He put his body and soul through meditational extruder to squeeze out the truth. He attained enlightenment and became Buddha to spread the message of love and compassion. He preached equality of all human beings.

 

Guru Nanak took the sublime spiritual knowledge to the masses in common man's language. He castigated those who exploited the masses in the name of the religion. He preached devotion to God and negated the importance of caste and creed. His God was open to all. The messages preached by these great souls are ever green and are the keys to the spiritual upliftment and salvation.
