Subject: The Great Hindu Tradition

My book titled THE GREAT HINDU TRADITION was released by Pujya Swami Dayananda Saraswati at Chennai which has an insight into our Sastras, Rituals and Heritage. The following review appeared in the print media may give you some idea about the comprehensive volume:
" dilip ", from Mumbai a most revered quarterly devoted to the study of the deeper aspects of religion, science and society, emphasising the heritage and culture of India writes about the book :

".....This is an interesting book of introduction of Hindu rituals.. The essense of rituals, their primary significance, the practical aspects and the required attitude of the performer have all been very nicely brought out in modern idiom by the learned author.

Commencing with a brief sketch of Vedas and Upanishads, and proceeding on to Maharishis, Mahabharata and some of the samskaras, the book takes up many FAQs for answer. The FAQs cover a wide range of subjects in the Hindu tradition.

A very impressive aspect of the book is that provisions of sastras have been clearly and forcefully presented in some cases supported by good arguments.
The book covers a vast ground and serves as a good source of basic information to modern English knowing youth, who are completely ignorant of our glorious tradition..."
I will be obliged if you could get a copy for yourself to go throught it and help me in popularising further the book by informing the details about the book to your friends/contacts.
The book is priced at Rs, 250/- including postage across India. It is $20 for overseas buyers including shipping.
