Description
About the Author

Samarpan is a monk, teacher and author with many books, articles and memoirs to his credit. His transcribed talks in Bengali on Hindu scriptures are available at archive.org. Videos of his talks are available on YouTube. He presently teaches ancient and modern scriptures at the University of his organisation.

Preface

Hindu religion was not founded by some individual at some point in time. Instead, it is based on spiritual truths that can be experienced by anyone, anywhere.

The Hindus do not have any central authority in the form of a book, church or a religious head. Instead, Hindus depend on the Vedas in matters of religion and social life. The Vedas are the records of realisations of the ancient sages. These were preserved and passed on through an unbroken chain of teacher-disciple, guru-sishya-parampara.

The statements of the Vedas were later elaborated in innumerable sacred books, which have served as philosophy, prayers, spiritual stories, the way of life and rituals for Hindus. The more important of these sacred books are the Upanishads, Mahabharata, Ramayana, Puranas and Gita.

The corpus of these sacred texts being huge, people often picked and chose from these works, depending on what appealed to them. These were then practised and preserved as family tradition. Also, when someone became a follower of a guru, the family traditions underwent additions and alterations. Hindu practices are thus highly personal, although based on the Vedas.

Life went on like this for thousands of years. Spiritual masters appeared now and then to infuse life and light in the spiritual well being of the Hindus. During the period, there were physical and intellectual attacks on the society, but the core of Hindu society being rooted in spiritual wisdom, it withstood the onslaughts.

Twentieth century brought in fundamental changes in the outlook towards Hindu religion by its opponents and adherents. There are the liberals who seem to find fault with most things Hindu, and on the opposite end there are those who appear orthodox to the point of being ridiculous.

This work presents the eternal and universal principles of the Hindus without any bias. Because of its impersonal nature, this work does not touch local and social practices. Caste, Varna and Ashrama are fully social issues, and hence these have not been touched.

Words like 'man' and 'he' have been used in this work as gender neutral. There are also some unavoidable repetitions. Hindu religion is about becoming divine and leading others to divinity, characterised by freedom and oneness. This work is a guide to that. Anyone who wants to enrich his/her religious and spiritual life, and those who want to adopt the Hindu way, can find in this work what they should know and what they should do.

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.

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

Elaine, Australia
I have purchased from you before. Excellent service. Fast shipping. Great communication.
