The Great Hindu Tradition, authored by Sri Sarma Sastrigal has an insight into Vedic Principles, Sastras and Heritage. This is a hand-book on Vedic Dharma and is very relevant in today's context. The main aim of the book is to bring out more clarity about the ancient customs and traditions that are performed. This is an interesting book, indeed. The essense of ritual, their primary significance, the practical aspects and the required attitude of the performer have all been very nicely brought out in modern idioms 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. The book has several chapters that include VEDAS, MAHARISHIS, RITUALS, MAHABHARATHA, and HUNDREDS of FAQs on HINDU CULTURE and ANUSHTANAMS. There has been a great demand for such books among Hindu community people settled abroad, particularly above the age of 30.
