About the Book

This book, in a short space, covers anextensive ground of Hindu teachings. It provides a panoramicview of a Hindu approaches to religion, philosophy, science,politics, mythology, art, the role of women, and the past andthe future of humanity.—Dr. DavidFrawley


Redundancy of the idea of religion seems to be growing inan age in which any mystery can be demystified by science.It also seems as if patronising religion is outdated in today’s
so-called progressive world. However, adaptability andprogressiveness have been the basic requisites of Hinduphilosophy. Hence it requires its followers to evolve withchange.

Through this book, the authors have tried to endorse the role ofHinduism in the formation and development of humansociety. They have looked back at the conception, evolution and
sustenance of Indian society through the lens of Hinduism,and have tried to explain this process through short Hindumythological tales. We believe decoding folklore is also a
source of understanding the history of any given period.

Different tales spanning different ages and times bring forth acompletely different picture of the mores and morality of oursociety, which still abide with the constant basic principles ofHinduism. This signifies the adaptability of this great religionwith changing times.The reader will discover that, eventually, the core values ofHinduism remain the same and support its relevance todayand will continue to do so for eternity.

The universe is made up of stories, not of atoms.—Muriel Rukeyser, Writer and Poetess
