I liked the book as I got to know about the science behind Hindu rituals which I was doing mindlessly because we are told to do it as it is since out childhood without being told the reason behind every rituals and rite.
So Go ahead and find the reasons behind rituals and rites.....
Avoid this book, to avoid disappointment.
Because we mostly do all the things are chores of activities without knowing any meaning. Thanks Amazon for giving me 85% off discount last week but this book is really worth the price
