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.

It is a style of living, an integrated approach to human life based on the fundamental facts of human nature and man's status in the Universe. The style and characteristic approach of Hinduism is multi-sided, eclectic, synoptic, integrated and developmental. This will undoubtedly playa significant role in the future development of humanity. This is the rationale, if a rationale is required at all for this critical summary of the wisdom of the Hindus in this book. It is meant not only for Hindus but for all those who admire such an approach.

As the material to be presented in this book is comprehensive. The book contain chapters on the foundations of Hindu wisdom, Hindu saints and savior's and the contribution of Hindus in philosophy, civilization, culture, social stratification, individual and social life, family, the status of women and marriage.

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. It will be equally useful to every enlightened human being in every country to know the contribution of the pioneers of culture and civilization on this planet.

The author has left no stones un turned to gather relevant material. In concluding remarks an analysis has seen made of the contemporary relevance of Hindu wisdom, sorting out what is living and what is dead in the light of man's imperative march towards modernity.
