I bought this book from the authors website because I have read a couple of other books by him. I was looking for a book that would explain Hinduism in a logical & analytical manner without a focus on rituals. I wanted to get a glimpse of what Hinduism is and this book delivers it very well. It's not about the rituals but about mind management.
I love the writing style as it is simple & effective without getting too complicated. Don't let the cover fool you - the book is not just for kids; adults can read it too and I am sure that they will also learn something new. The author covers topics such as nature of self, nature of God (who knew!), goal of life, grace of God, importance of self-effort, importance of mind, practicing devotion daily, meditation and so much more.
If you are curious to learn about the true meaning or essence of Hinduism, buy this book!
I love how the author of this book explains some of the deepest concepts in life in such a simple way that even a layman would have no trouble understanding! The author talks about the goal of life, our relationship with God, and the importance of the mind among many others.
Not sure if people think about the reason behind all our actions - it is because we are seeking happiness! So simple but yet not so simple. Why are we seeking happiness? It is a much deeper concept and the author has explained it so wonderfully that you cannot help but agree what he says is true!
I would say the book is truly an interesting and educational read and definitely one that would leave the reader reflecting on the message of the author. It is definitely a charming read for children as well as the book is written in simple terms with many beautiful colorful illustrations. Though it seems to be aimed at hinduism, the fundamental message relates to all human beings regardless of their religion so would encourage it for all readers - young and old (loved it so much, got one for my 12 year old niece - she needs to know these things!).
This is very interesting book about Hinduism. This book reconciles philosophy of different sects of Hinduism with evidence from Vedic and western scriptures. After reading this book I got clear understanding of ancient Hindu philosophy and also learn how to implement this knowledge practically in our day-to-day life.
This book is equally benefited to all kind of persons and does not require any prerequisite knowledge of Hinduism.
This book is written in a simple language with full of color pictures, and so all the chapters are easy to understand. Because of its simplicity the readers while reading neither loose their temper nor get lost from the main stream. Once, who starts reading does not like to leave in the midway. Discussion on the Karma, Gyana and Bhakti Yoga is so interesting that it intensely motivate the readers.
The Art of meditation is presented in such a manner that all ages and also beginners enjoy reading.
I believe that this book provides complete messages about Hinduism. The related contents are carefully selected to make the book more interesting and useful.
I highly appreciate for endeavor of the writers in bringing out such a valuable book.
