The Final Truth of God Soul and Salvation Demystified – by Vyankatesh Katkar

 

The Final Truth of God Soul and Salvation Demystified

 

BLURB –

The book, ‘The Final Truth of God Soul and Salvation Demystified’ speaks about core spiritual philosophies and nothing else. All extraneous matters have been strictly excluded. It is written in question and answer format for the sake of clarity and ease to understand. The true value of this book lies in demystification of spirituality through crystal clear SSclarity of thought that is devoid of ambiguities and vain mysticism. The book puts forth many fresh philosophical views, which are contrary to that of established religious dogmas and philosophies on many vital aspects of spirituality. The book is a product of long years of study, meditation, contemplation and spiritual enquiry. It is a potential rabble-rouser, as it strikes very hard at heart of established pseudo spiritual beliefs and practices. Even a cursory look at content index will give good overview of the book. This book is must read for all enquiring minds. None of the present religion answers all the questions regarding spiritual matters that arise in the mind of intelligent and scientifically grounded mind. And there is no unanimity regarding various fundamental and vital questions regarding nature of God, soul and particularly about meaning of salvation and ways to achieve that.

 

REVIEW –

From the cover itself you know it is a spritual book. The title is also apt as per the book plot. The book is in questions and answer format. Which helps you in breaking down the most asked questions to ourselves answered in simple language and helps you understand the universe a little much more better. The book also has key points in the end which summarizes the book in short. Alot of concepts will be cleared and some will lead you much more curious. The book has been well researched and written.The theme is spritual.  The book is ideal for people who have interest in this genre or have just began to know about this. Language is simple. The book is a short read. The book is divided well into chapters. Karma, spritual science, soul, cosmos.The author has made this book easy for people who want to know everything summarized. The book is a short read.

Ramayana: Stand Strong – by Shubha Vilas

 

 

BLURB –

The Ramayana is not a story. It’s a way of life. It’s the game of life.

Life is a constant reminder that nothing, however powerful in one season, remains unchanging. The endless cycles of change can truly us if we are unprepared to face its realities. However, we often see these changing times as problems larger than they really are. Many issues in life when perceived with fear, result in pain; but when perceived with CLARITY, result is FREEDOM.

Situations of helplessness are almost always created by our own limited imagination.

Do you have the courage to face your fears?
Stand Strong, the fourth book in Ramayana: The Game of Life series reminds us through its eternal stories — such as the tale of brothers Vali and Sugriva — that life is like a high-risk treasure hunt: one often has to walk through a maze of confusing paths while being chased by dangerously complex dilemmas to find the hidden treasure of wisdom.

 

REVIEW –

There are books that uplift you and hold you through storms , this book is one of those. Ramayana has been written over and over again but this one has a different perspective and teaching to tell us. This book keeps you hooked at all times. Starting from the cover itself it  is so calming. The blurb gives just the right amount to keep you interested. A long read yes, but really beautiful. The way it is narrated and each event is properly explained plus every page has glossary to explain all the meanings to one. It is a self help plus a story book. This book gives you so much more clarity about life and your current situations. It will make you wise and much more satified with life. Language is easy to understand. The book has alot to offer as you delve in. It is not necessary only for sprituality readers to read this book but it is made for the masses to gain wisdom and root alot more to themselves. It is a series of 4 books one can read this book directly or can even be read from the start. The plot rotates around the main characters.

The OM Mala is a book (and a mala) which explains just one word-OM. OM is one of the shortest Sanskrit words, and yet is considered the most powerful word and a mystic mantra in Hinduism. The OM Mala gives eighty-four names of OM as per classical, epic, and medieval Sanskrit texts and explains their various meanings in 109 sections or beads, corresponding to 109 beads in a mala (108 chanting beads and one ‘sumeru bead’). Each bead of this book presents simple meaning of one name (or more than one related names) of OM and offers an explanation along with listing the relevant traditions, explaining the etymology, and quotations. The book includes rare names of OM like ‘shrutipada’ and ‘rasa’ as well as its common names like ‘om’, ‘udgitha’, and ‘pranava’. Both popular meanings of OM (like the trinity of Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva) and its rare meanings (like inhalation, holding the breath, and exhalation) are included.

Some books leave an impact on you and this book is definitely one. Starting off with the cover -it is smooth matte finish with om sign over it with beads on it. Bright yellow depicting hope and aura of om.
