The wisdom of the Hindus has played a very significant part in all walks of human life in the history of the development of human civilization of Greek wisdom. When it is said today that India may be a world leader tomorrow, most of it will be contributed by the wisdom of the Hindus.

The book summarises the Hindu contribution to various fields of knowledge and skill: literature, polity, ethics, education, fine arts, medicine, mathematic and astronomy.

Dealing with almost all aspects of the Hindu religion, civilization, culture and social institutions and summarizing Hindu contribution to various fields of knowledge and skill, this book s is a significant contribution to world literature at the juncture of the present meeting of East and West and the development of a global human culture. It will be useful to every thoughtful Indian to find out his ancient roots.

Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
