The appropriate method of performing Dharmik acts and their underlying spiritual science is provided in the series of Holy texts on “What do Dharmashastras say and why?” If Dharmilk acts are performed appropriately from the spiritual perspective, they bestow more Chaitanya. When an action is performed after learning its underlying science, it generates spiritual emotion towards God and the worshipper becomes a seeker in a shorter time, that is, he starts making consistent efforts for God-realization.


About the Author

Dr. Jayant Athavale started writing Holy text with the blessings of His Guru H.H. Bhaktaraj Maharaj. There Holy text imparts knowledge on Spirituality in scientific terminology and as per the present times. Due to God’s grace and Sankalp-shakti of dr. Athavale, some seekers of Sanatan are receiving Divine knowledge from the subtle- this is the unique feature of these Holy-texts.

Dr. Ashville’s guidance and research on God-realization through various art forms and subjects such as mission of demoniacal energies and guidance for protecting humanity from them is taking place incessantly.



There is a proverb in Sankrut which means, Happiness in the true sense (Anand) is possible only by being religious that is, by following Dharma; hence always endeavor to follow it. Though the medium of various religious naturals sanskars (Subconscious impressions), Festivals, Vowed observance etc., Hindu Dharma has shown to be religions while continuing to lead a materialistic life. Hindu Dharma has conveyed its message of being religions through not only daily ritualistic worship or acts related to worship during Holy and Religious festivals, Vowed religious observance etc. but also though various familial and social rituals.

Only when a designated act is supportant by rituals as prescribed by Hindu Dharma, mining the course defined by rituals that have a spiritual basis is adhered to, that we obtain the grace of Deities. This also helps in protecting us from negative energies. Along with the individual, such acts bestow benefit upon the society too, and hence, it becomes samashti sadhana Spiritual practice for the spread of Spirituality in the society. This Holy text elaborates upon the objectives, the correct method of performing a ritual and underlying spiritual science of familial religious ritual such as birthday celebration, aukshan, gifting, performance of the ritual of Shanti (Peasc) as per one’s age and social rituals such as inauguration, lighting of an inaugural lamp, felicitation, condolence meetings etc. When a ritual is performed with complete faith after understanding the underlying spiritual science, benefit derived is greater. Importance of reciting Sanskrut shlokas (Holy verses) and information on which shlokas to recite during spiritual discourses, book exhibitions, condolence meetings, relies etc. is also provided in this Holy text.

In today’s times, Hindus are more influenced by western culture. The combined effect of forgetting our own Dharma as well as our culture, coupled with the fascination for western culture, is the reason for large-scale influence of western culture on our religions rituals. This is quite clear from a number of practices such as celebration a birthday by cutting a cake and blowing candles instead of performing amusing aukshan; infuriating a premise by cutting a ribbon instead of purifying the place by breaking a coconut; lighting the ceremonious lamp with a candle and not with a wick of an oil lamp etc. That these acts do not bestow chaitanya (Divine consciousness) and are spiritually detrimental has been explained in the Holy text along with the underlying spiritual science. We pray at the holy feet of Sri Guru that let everyone progress spiritually, both at the vyashti (Individual) and samashti (For the sake of the society) level by performing the rituals according to the underlying spiritual science as mentioned in the Holy text and let pride Dharma and culture be awakened in Hindus.-Compiler.
