9788172760557: Hindu Dharma: The Universal Way of Life

HINDU DHARMA/THE UNIVERSAL WAY OF LIFE. To deal with Hindu Dharma or.more correctly,Veda Dharma or Sanatana Dharma,within the compass of a book,is like trying to contain an ocean in a jar.It is a task that can be accomplished only by a Great Master.Such a Master was Pujyasri Chandrasekharendra Sarasvati Swami who has in the discourses constituting this book given an illuminating account of Hindu Dharma in all aspects.He has brought to bear here not only his vast erudition but also his intuitive insights and synaptic vision.It is doubtful if in modern times any other Acharya has given such a lucid and comprehensive exegesis of the sastras. The Paramguru discusses the basic texts of Veda Dharma-the four Vedas,the six Vedangas,Mimamsa,Nyaya,the Puranas and Dharmasastra.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.He combines ancient wisdom with modern knowledge and it is thus 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.It is all in the context of varna dharma to which we owe the achievements of the great Indian civilization. Altogether it is an integrated view of Sanatana dharma that emerges in which the ultimate Vedic message of liberation here and now is underlined.

About the Author:

Pujyasri Chandrasekharendra Sarasvati Svami was installed as the 68th Sankaracharya of Kanchi Kamakoti Pitha in 1907,when he was hardly 13 years old.His life spanned the greater part of the century and during the period of social and political ferment he was one of the guiding lights.He was a divine incarnation-indeed he was the greatest spiritual luminary of the times-and his mission of restoring the Vedic religion to it s old glory was no less significant than that of Adi Sankara. The master of masters was like a lambent light who rekindled the spirit of the nation and brought about a renaissance in many spheres like religion and culture.He was the voice of eternal india and he taught mankind,groping in the dark despite all the strides taken in science and technology,how to journey towards a higher destiny,how to win the highest of freedoms,the freedom of Atma-svarajya. His compassion was as boundless as his jnana.The memory of his gentle face can never be erased from the hearts and those who had seen him will cherish it always as well as the hand that conveyed his blessings.
