Meri Hanuman Chalisa

Meri Hanuman Chalisa

सकारात्मक ऊर्जा के लिए हिन्दू धर्म की सबसे लोकप्रिय प्रार्थनाओं में से एक - हनुमान चालीसा
प्रशंसित पौराणिक कथाकार देवदत्त पटनायक ने समकालीन पाठक के लिए हनुमान चालीसा की गूढ़ता को अपने शब्दों में सरल बनाया है । उनका अनूठा दृष्टिकोण इस प्राचीन भजन को सुलभ बना देता है, क्योंकि यह उनके अपने ट्रेडमार्क चित्रों के साथ है।
जब भी हम इस संसार में अपने आप में नकारात्मकता का अनुभव करते हैं, या ईर्ष्या, क्रोध और हताशा को अपराध और हिंसा में परिवर्तित होते हुए अनुभव करते हैं, तब हम में से ज़्यदातर लोग हनुमान चालीसा ही सुनते या पढ़ते हैं I
चार सौ साल पूर्व तुलसीदास द्वारा अवधी भाषा में सरल शब्दों में लिखे गए इसके दोहे और चौपाइयाँ संगीतबद्ध रूप में हनुमानजी के बारे में पौराणिक ज्ञान, ऐसतिहासिक तथ्यों व रहस्य को उजागर करते हैं I हनुमानजी हिन्दुओं के प्रिय देवता हैं, जिनके माध्यम से वैदिक ज्ञान लोगों तक पहुँचता है I
इन छंदों को पढ़ते-सुनते हुए भयभीत व विचलित मन, ज्ञान व अंतर्दृष्टि से आलोकित हो जाता है तथा मानवता में हमारा विश्वास और भी बढ़ जाता है I

Spiritually Incorrect

Spiritually Incorrect

With candour and irreverent humour, Dan Wakefield's Spiritually Incorrect shows that there is no one path to achieving spiritual fulfilment. Part memoir and part essay, Wakefield's reflections break through the barriers that have been placed on the path to spiritual fulfilment, discussing the importance of breaking rules in order to carve out an independent and unique path to achieve the attainment of a spiritual life.

In an age of political correctness, the award-winning author, raises controversial questions about spirituality:

  • Why is poverty sacred, wealth profane?
  • Can a Coffee house be a sacred space?
  • Does Yoga make you a Hindu?
  • Can a man pray in public and still be 'macho'?
  • Does eating a steak really taint your soul?
  • Who in our lives and our modern day World deserves to be canonized as a saint? His exploration of these questions is, in essence, a quest to free the spiritual World from pretension, anxiety and the endless rules that dictate an individual's relationship with religion.

In Search of Roots

In Search of Roots

Guru Nanak found the Sikh faith at a Time when Mughal rule in India was flourishing. Despite much resistance and violence, he influenced many Hindus to convert to Sikhism largely through its doctrine of caste equality. The third guru, Amar Das, took his legacy even further, introducing reforms for the emancipation of Women and the lower castes. In Search of Roots traces the lineage of the Khatri Bhallas. It makes a study of the teachings of Amar Das, himself a Bhalla, as well as the earlier gurus and examines whether their legacy did indeed flourish under their descendants.

An integrated analysis of history, religion, Biography and genealogy, In Search of Roots compares and contrasts the Religious Politics of pre-Mughal and Mughal rulers and analyses the History and economy of the towns and cities of the Punjab, such as Goindwal, Ferozepur and Jalandhar, which is rarely found in existing literature. The industrious Bhallas travelled far and wide and their emigration to Kenya, Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States of America in the twentieth century is discussed in the context of a broader Indian diaspora. A well-written and extensively researched book, In Search of Roots is a unique study of History and Genealogy in the Indian subcontinent.
