Books and Writings of Hinduism - hinduism holy book
Hindu bhagavad gita - Hinduism the vedas
books and writings of Hinduism... the foremost of all Hindu holy
books is the sacred Bhagavad-Gita of Hinduism! The Hindu holy book
Bhagavad-Gita has no parallel in mankind. The doctrine of karma...
principles of Dharma (righteousness), meaning of death in Hinduism,
what means Hinduism moksha... the concept of good and evil... All
is explained in Bhagavad-Gita!
constitutes as the most important books and writings of Hinduism
and also all other religions of world! Everything that is worth
knowable in whole of cosmos... is summarized in sacred holy book
Bhagavad-Gita of Hinduism! From beginning of time... start of
cosmos with a big bang until dissolution of the cosmos (termed Pralaya
in Hinduism)... all is contained in Bhagavad-Gita in explicit detail!
of Hindu holy book Bhagavad-Gita can never be understood literally...
it needs reading in between the lines! The Hinduism holy book Bhagavad-Gita
consists of 700 shlokas (verses) knowing which human beings finally
emancipated forever from cycle of birth and death... reached stage
of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and salvation (moksha) in their
of Bhagavad-Gita was put forward to mankind by Lord Krishna... an
avatar of his era (God manifest in human form) in the battle of
Mahabharata between Pandavas and Kauravas! The Pandavas represent
Dharma (righteousness) in contrast to adharma (lawlessness) practiced
by Kauravas! Both Pandavas and Kauravas represent two sides of the
Kauravas belonged to the same clan yet, Pandavas followed path of
Dharma (righteousness) as against Kauravas taking the path of adharma
(lawlessness). The present society is in grip of adharma (lawlessness).
Be it any part... corner of world situation is the same! It is in
such times essence of sacred Bhagavad-Gita becomes all the more
contained in holy book Bhagavad-Gita are perennial in nature! Even
after passage of above 3600 years... truthfulness of Bhagavad-Gita
remains the same! The contents of Bhagavad-Gita are applicable
as much today as were in times of Lord Krishna, Pandavas and Kauravas!
With passage of time teachings of Bhagavad-Gita never dilute...
but interpretations do!
Amongst other important books and writings of Hinduism come the
holy Vedas... that primarily consists of four major Vedas... the
Rig Veda, Sama Veda, Yajur Veda and Atharva Veda! All the four Vedas
are voluminous documents much beyond reach of commoners... masses...
the prime reason why human beings could not follow the teachings
of Vedas of their own!
were meant for old times when rituals were part of daily life! With
the scientific advancements in vogue today... the need for rituals
has decreased! Particularly in the field of spirituality rituals
carry no meaning! For a serious seeker of spirituality indulging
in rituals... religion would simply retard the spiritual journey
than push it further!
coming of Lord Krishna... an avatar of his era (God manifest in
human form)... the messages contained in Vedas were reduced to Bhagavad-Gita
which is also termed Vedanta (end of Vedas). Now the masses
could assimilate the teachings contained in Bhagavad-Gita... the
gist of which can be found hanging in most bookshops of India.
Bhagavad-Gita not only forms part of most important books and writings
of Hinduism... it is in fact the true essence of life! In absence
of Bhagavad-Gita human beings on mother Earth could never reach
the stage of enlightenment. Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ
and Prophet Mohammed... all followed teachings of Bhagavad-Gita
ceremoniously to gain enlightenment!
set of Hindu religious books are Upanishads (independent treatises)
of which Katha Upanishad, Kena Upanishad and Isa Upanishad being
the foremost! There are above 200 Upanishads in vogue of which
about 9 ~12 play a pivotal role in Hinduism! Jnanavalakya Upanishad...
composed and compiled by Sage Jnanavalakya is the most voluminous
was a Brahma jnani... who gained enlightenment in his lifetime!
He was a famous sage of Janaka era (King Janaka was father of Sita
in Ramayana). Maitreyi the dutiful second wife of Sage Jnanavalakya
also gained enlightenment in her lifetime. She is one of the two
ladies who gained enlightenment in history of mankind! The other
was Gargi... a famous philosopher of her times!
The important books and writings of Hinduism namely the sacred
Bhagavad-Gita, the Vedas and the Upanishads play a very pivotal
role in the history of mankind! In absence of Hinduism... mankind
carries no meaning! For crossing the ocean of samsara (worldly life)...
for gaining enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) in present life time
the only refuge is seeking wisdom from important books and writings
of Hinduism... the sacred Bhagavad-Gita and the Upanishads!
I was born in
a Jain family yet I follow the teachings of sacred Bhagavad-Gita
of Hinduism ceremoniously! Lord Krishna was born about thousand
years earlier to Mahavira... the 24th Tirthankara of Jainism (preceptor).
The sacred teachings of Bhagavad-Gita are without impurity... they
would continue to form essence of life for millenniums!
The holy book
of Bhagavad-Gita carries the same importance as that of heart in
a body... as that of a soul Atman in the body! In absence of a beating
heart... a soul Atman... the body would simply decay and die! In
absence of Bhagavad-Gita... devoid of wisdom contained in Bhagavad-Gita
mankind would just not progress on the spiritual scale!
No doubt as of today United states of America is superpower number
one as it exhibits the best practices of physical manifest world
yet, the virtues of spiritual world always manifest with India...
the spiritual domain of the world! In absence of India, Hinduism
at large... the world cannot sustain for long!
It is presence
of spiritual messages... the existence of spiritual saints and sages
of different era that mankind exists in present shape! In absence
of truthfulness... in absence of Dharma (righteousness)... in absence
of spiritual wisdom that is largely confined to important books
and writings of Hinduism... everything in the physical manifest
world would appear farce!
In the coming
world war 3 that is expected around 2012 (more particularly between
2012~2014)... the world shall witness death of 1200 million people!
In the melee life would lose its meaning! For the world to stage
a comeback... for the meanings of life to survive... the coming
of a Messiah... a spiritual avatar... a spiritual master of the
highest order is necessitated!
Bhagavan Kalki... the awaited Messiah would be from India! The peninsula
of India is surrounded from three sides by water... the prime reason
why Nostradamus in his quatrains has clearly stated that the awaited
Messiah would come from a region that looks like a turban! The messages
of Nostradamus were always veiled to escape the wrath of King of
In the coming
end times... there is no need to despair! All is dependent upon
our karma performed. Those with a sunny disposition and godly thinking
would reap benefits of positive karma performed all the time.
Those indulging in vice... nefarious activities all the time would
succumb to their fate... the result of bad karma performed!
of important books and writings of Hinduism are available to one

in English and Hindi is available for only $.60 (Rupees 30/=) at
most railway stations of India or directly from Gita press, Gorakhpur,
India! The wisdom truly is available cheap... but to fathom the
