Book Description
About The Book

In the tranquil silence of meditation. I listened to the uproar of the River of Sentiments within the deep caves of my heart. Using my creative prowess. I wove a story around those sentiments encompassing the teachings of our ancient sages. The result is in your hands. Yes, Visnu for Beginners This is not just an ordinary book but a repository of the celestial knowledge of our ancestors.



Bharata or India is the cradle of all civilizations. The culture and traditions of the people of Bharata are based on the concept of Dharma. The Vedas are the repositories of this Dharma. The people of Bharata follow this Vedic Dharma also called the Sanatana Dharma.

In the olden days, Vedic Dharma was taught in the Gurukulas.

Therefore, people were aware about the Vedic Dharma. As times changed, English education has slowly replaced the traditional Gurukula system. Only a handful of true Gurukulas exist today, which preach true Vedic Dharma.

As a result, the teachings of the Vedas are beginning to be forgotten. The Vedas, which were the guiding lamps of mankind since time immemorial, are beginning to take a back seat with the advent of attractive and misleading Western Culture.

Today, there are still such persons who want to know the true meanings of the Vedas. Their fathers and grandfathers were great Vedic scholars. Yet, they had no opportunity to learn Sarnskrt, as they had to attend English schools for their livelihood. Therefore they were very unfortunate to miss a treasure of knowledge contained in the Vedas. The next generations started to move even farther with greater speeds, thanks to the invasion of western media. As a result there is a danger of Bharata culture being totally wiped off from their hearts, a great shame indeed for any descendant of the Holy Land of Bharata.

Thus, there is an urgent need to educate next generations about the Vedic Culture and its greatness Many great Saints have come down to earth for the purpose of spreading the Vedic Dharma, but unfortunately their teachings cannot reach our next generations, as all of their teachings are in Sarnskrt.

Attempts have been made in recent times to translate the works of our great saints into English and other languages But, mere as-is translations fail to fully convey the intent of their great works and sometimes tend to make them irrelevant to the present context, without necessary background information. Further, no matter how good a translation is, it still lacks the charm of the original.

Therefore there is a great need for good books which meet the following objectives.

Bring to the reader the essence of Vedic teachings in the modern idiom.

Present the teachings in an interactive style.

Introduce basic to advanced concepts in a phased manner with necessary background information, so that a person with no acquaintance of the subject can also find a place to start off.

Make the subject relevant to the present context.

Take the reader slowly towards the language of the originals than keep him away from it.
