The Great Hindu Tradition

by Sri Sarma Sastrigal

Average Customer Rating ( Read Reviews | Write a Review )
$12.99 $9.74

Quantity:

This is an interesting book of introduction of Hindu Rituals. The essence 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.

The book has an insight into Vedic Principles, Sastras and Heritage.Commencing with a brief sketch of Vedas and Upanishads and proceeding on to Maharishis, Mahabharata and some of the Samskaras, the book takes up hundreds of FAQs for answer. The FAQs cover a wide range of subjects in the Hindu customs.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 also has a chapter on the Arya-Dravida Race theory which is very interesting and also informative.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. In a nutshell it can be called as a hand-book of Vedic Dharma, and very relevant in today’s context.

About the Author:

Customer Reviews of The Great Hindu Tradition

IT IS INVALUABLE IN ITS EXPLANATION OF THE MEANING AND IMPORT OF TEXTS AND RITUALS...

Rating: 5 of 5 Stars! [5 of 5 Stars!]
Review by G Sowmya: Friday 29 April, 2011
THE GREAT HINDU TRADITION written by Sri Sarma Sastrigal is a practical guide on how we can follow our Sastras in the background of the ever changing world. I am tempted to quote a few sentences from the SRIMUKHAM issued by the Sankaracharya Mutt at Kanchipuram for the book :

The SRIMUKHAM of Kanchi Kamakoti Mutt says: " ...... Brahmasri Sarma Sastrigal, an ardent devotee of our Srimatam, has written many books in Tamil on the performance of Vedic rituals. His latest book 'The Great HIndu Tradition' in English seems to be an encyclopedia on the rituals of our Sanatana Dharma. It is obsered that he has taken great strain in bringing out this book only to make the younger generation of the Hindu community to realise the intricacies of the Vedic way of life. This book will certainly help to know about our hoary heritage....."
