Hindu wisdom in simple English, October 31, 2001 Reviewer at Amazon.com: Anand Ulaganathan from Auckland, New Zealand. If you ask me 'What's in this book for you?Â? I can simply say that this book is for a proper understanding of the real heart of Hinduism (Vedanta). I can also summarize this book as a complete manual to unfold yourselves and to get introduced to the fundamentals of Vedanta. When I first read this book some ten years ago, I was tremendously inspired and got self-initiated to acquire the esoteric wisdom from the 'assumedly' complex literature of Hinduism. Reflecting on the book's subject matter has led me to read many of Swami Chinmayananda's other books, be it the commentary on the Bhagavad-Gita or the Upanishads. Swami Chinmayananda's explanation, as in many of his other 'path'-books of self-development, appeals to any rational mind regardless of any nationality, creed or race. The explanation is lucid in understandable English, which can be read & reflected individually, and also as a textbook, which can be studied systematically in a group. This book is a fantastic rendering of the fundamental concepts of real Hinduism (Vedanta). After having read exhaustively other books on Hinduism & Vedanta by other authors, I always like to go back to this book and often say to myself' Yes. I understand it better now'. This book is a MUST HAVE for any real spiritual-book lover and a MUST READ for anybody who wants to be better prepared to face life's challenges. Thanks.
