Description
About the Book

Lotus flower is one of the important symbols in the Hindu religion. The significance of the Lotus is mentioned in the fifth chapter of Gita by Lord Krishna: "One who does all works as an offering to the Lord, abandoning attachment of the results, is as untouched by sin as a Lotus Leaf is untouched by water"…….Yoga or Renunciation.

So, the ultimate goal of the human kind is to aim to be like a Lotus leaf, perform the karmas without being attached to the world.

Lord Krishna in Bhagavad Gita says: -

This book brings out the essentials of Hinduism which, I believe, would bring the desired change and prosperity to our people particularly, the younger generation. This book has been presented in a magnificent manner.

This book, among other recent books, would be like a prominent precious jewel in a crown.

I wish the author Sri G.S. Nilakantan all the best in all his future literary works.

 

About the Author

The author worked in the electric utility industry for 45 years as an engineer. Mr. G.S.Nilakantan lives in U.S.A. for the past four decades.

After retirement, the author got involved with curiosity about the spirituality. The interesting fact is, when you pursue spirituality in-depth, the worldly interests gradually take a lesser priority. Eventually, the author’s interests translated to a deep desire to produce something useful for people with spiritual interests. After a while, these desires matured and culminated to publish a book that shall awaken a common person, raise him[her] to a higher level and pursue in-depth spirituality-not just acquire knowledge, but also apply that knowledge in everyday life. Therefore, Mr. Nilakantan came up with the idea of developing this book to give a good basic understanding of our Hinduism essentials-learn as well as practice in real life.

 

Foreword

Hindu society enjoys the incessant flow of Sanatana Dharma, the eternal religion, through the length and breadth of this sacred land. The seeming variations are at best sporadic. The Vedas, Upanishads, Ramayana and Mahabharata belong to the land and are held in high esteem and veneration. The basic beliefs and traditions remain the same throughout the land.

Bharath is highly esteemed for its age-old Hindu tradition and for having a rich treasure of knowledge on various fields. But, there are a few attempts to systematically classify them into known branches of knowledge in an illustrative manner to familiarize a lay reader with the richness of the ancient past. Here comes the painstaking effort of Sri G.S. Nilakantan in compiling them and bringing out in a book form.

I have gone through the pages of the book ‘ESSENTIALS OF HINDUISM - A PRACTICAL GUIDE’ and found it very interesting. He has covered several aspects including Vedas, Bhagavad Gita, Ithihasa, Puranas, Panchangam and a few topics on the essentials of Hinduism. The reader will find some FAQs also.

Hinduism itself is about life and how we go through the spiritual progression to a higher plane of consciousness. Along this path of progression are the guiding values and traditions that keep on course. Today’s world has plenty of seekers, who need inputs on spirituality and human values in a de-mystified manner. This book by Sri Nilakantan may help to know just that. Sri Nilakantan has done a commendable work. This book is a useful reference guide for all those who want to know the basics of our Hindu scriptures.

I congratulate him for this nice work and my best wishes for all-round success.

Testimonials
I received my Manjushri statue today and I can't put in words how delighted I am with it! Thank you very much. It didn't take very long to get here (the UK) - I wasn't expecting it for a few more weeks. Your support team is very good at providing customer service, too. I must conclude that you have an excellent company.
Mark, UK.
A very comprehensive site for a company with a good reputation.
Robert, UK

Fotis, Greece
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
Steven, USA
