Indian Literature In Hindi

There is so much to Hindi sahitya that has the essence of the divine as expounded in Hinduism. Exotic India's handpicked collection of books in the vernacular is exhaustive and has been sourced from the obscurest nooks and crannies of the Indian subcontinent. A lot of these are translations from Indian vernaculars of lesser accessibility, whereas some have no translations available from the original Hindi in which they were written. The pleasure of reading Indian literature in Hindi is insurmountable.


Q1. What are the seven holy books?


Different religions have different views and definitions of God that are described in their respective religious books and texts. These books are considered holy and are therefore highly revered. The seven holy books are Bhagavad Gita, Vedas, Upanishads, Quran, Bible, Torah, and Tripitaka or Pali Canon. The Bhagavad Gita, Vedas, and Upanishads are the holy books of Sanatan Dharma or Hinduism. These sacred texts were compiled by Vsayadev and were then passed down through disciplic succession. The Quran is the holy book of Islam that mentions the words of Allah, the all-powerful.  The holy book of Christianity is the Bible which is divided into two sections; the Old Testament and the New Testament. The Torah is the holy book of Judaism and Tripitaka is the holy book of Buddhism.
