Back of the Book

The proper mode of life, according to the Indian culture, lies in practicing the chaturvidha purushartha. The four purusharthas are Dharma, Artha, Kama and moksha. Moksha or self-realisation has been considered the highest achievement in this life. But the practice of the three purusharthas in the proper periods of life is supposed to lead to satisfaction of life and mental peace, leading ultimately to atmalabha.

The great Indian social philosophers made an exhaustive and scientific study of different aspects of human life and propounded treatises, which left an indelible mark on Indian thought and culture. In fact, they are among the greatest legal and social philosophies of the world.

This volume covers five of these personalities, namely Manu, Yajnavalkya, Kautilya, Vatsyayana and doyen of Tamil literary figures, Tiruvalluvar.

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.
