Preface

A Value like Ahimsa is Universal. It is so because every human being through his or her common sense knows it. Preaching a value, therefore, has no value. But each value is to be assimilated so that it does not get compromised under pressure of greed, pride, infatuation and so on.

This book initiates the process of assimilation of certain important values and healthy attitudes discussed in the Bhagavad Gita. A well-assimilated value becomes part of oneself like even the value of hygiene. Deliberate living of a chosen value is a must to complete the process of assimilation. May this book help the reader grow into one totally acceptable to oneself.

 

Back of The Book

"The Expression of My Life is Just the Expression of My well -Assimilated Value structure. What I do is but an Expression of what is Valuable to me.

For comfort to be enjoyed I must be there to Enjoy them. When I am split with guilt, I tarelyoh Where but with my anxieties, regrets and guilt. When I clearly see this fact, will see the value of applying universal ethical standards to myself.Therefore, a value, universal or situational, is a value for me only when I see the value of the value as valuable to me"

Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
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.
