It is a great service to human being, specially the modern Indians, and a laudable effort to
bring forth the most essential things in life in order to create a cultured and refined society
he is doing with is Hindoology Books.
If man becomes sensitive enough to realize the value of being cultured as human being by not
simply changing dress, language, formal behaviour and amenities but by becoming religious,
spiritual and diligent and by leading a life free from fears and inhibitions then all the honest
and sincere efforts of the Chairman and the author will be amply rewarded.
In this book, you will find all the Samskars as I have left nothing out. In other words, I have
incorporated everything related to Samskars that I have ever heard of or read about. I have
incorporated the ways and means of performing all such Samskars and of worshipping various gods
and goddesses in a separate section. It is the most essential part of the Samskars. Without the
Poojan Vidhi the book would have been incomplete.
Nowadays, people are not aware of the Samskars. They are only living Artha (wealth) and Kama
(desire). So, they are unhappy, depressed and live under fear. Only the Samskars will make them
live a complete and blissful life by including Dharma (righteousness) and Moksha (liberation) in
their life. The Samskars can chart the path and give them inner strength to follow the path of
righteousness that will eventually lead a man to bliss and beatitude.
Only a has been taken from scriptural transliteration for long ‘a’ sound which is otherwise
impossible to write in the Roman script. Everything else is written in the same ways as given in
government papers, magazines, newspapers and general books. Most of the longer compound words
have been separated in shorter simple words. It will help the readers to read the Mantras and
Shlokas quoted in the book.
The book ‘16 Hindu Samskars’ incorporates all the Samskars that make a person refined and
cultured, to grow from inside and to enable one to lead a pious, complete, healthy, happy,
pleasant and prosperous life. If all the Samskars are performed and the patterns and rules obeyed
than life of a person would be worth citizen able to make the earth a better place for all living
beings and to ensure continuity of life.
Read ’16 Hindu Samskars’, learn about them and be ‘Samskari’.
