Hindu Dharma- The Universal Way of Life
The book gives an illuminating account of Hindu Dharma in all its aspects. The Paramaguru discusses the basic texts of Veda Dharma- the four Vedas, the six Vedangas, Mimamsa, Nyaya, the Puranas and Dharmashastra. These encompass various systems of thought and various points of view and the Great Master tries to make them part of one unified vision that is Hinduism.
In this book, the great acharya recounts all that we need to know about dharma and presents in an integrated form the various systems of thought that have flourished in our country. The discourses that make up this book are remarkable for their simple and enchanting style. The most complex of ideas are explained with such lucidity as to make them comprehensible to the ordinary reader. He combines ancient wisdom with modern knowledge and it is thus that he finds common points between the metaphysics and physics of sound in the chapters in which he expounds the Vedas and tells us why their sound must be preserved.SKU: n/a
