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.
